    Ashleigh Flynn and the Riveters

    Alternative Country

    With what PopMatters describes as "tenacious swagger," critically-acclaimed solo artist Ashleigh Flynn recently dialed up the volume and debuted an all-female rock band as a nod to the “Rosie the Riveter” archetype from WWII.

    Flynn grew up in Kentucky and cut her teeth on local bluegrass music and Motown. A prolific songwriter and performer blessed with unbridled charisma, she arrived on the Americana scene in 2008 with the release of her third LP, American Dream, a poetic lament to the elusiveness of that national ethos. A Million Stars followed in 2013 – a rollicking journey celebrating the women pioneers of the American West.

    Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters’ inaugural LP hit the streets in 2018 featuring a sound that hearkens back to early Stones, ‘70s psychedelic country rock, and alternately charms like a Sunday afternoon front porch session...

    The Mawlee Jones Band

    Alternative Country

    They sure know how to ride! 

    Reverberating raunchy tonk from the Pacific Northwest, The Mawlee Jones Band is rounding up delinquents with hootin’, tootin’, out-ball-country. This band of bizarre bandits have a twangy, swamp-witch sound that is punishably good— from belly-aching ballads to fruity cowboy rendezvous tales, they’re confessing the reality of backwoods queer love and eroticism. 

    The Origins Story of Mawlee Jones… 

    A gay adolescent is trapped in a conservative town called Bumfuck, Montana. Life as they know it is round-the-clock bigotry, fashion-crimes, and cow-tipping— The horror! They become tired of this mundanity, and long to not only take life by the balls, but slap them….maybe kiss them a little too? Mawlee Jones pulls themselves up by the hand-me-down bootstraps, and seizes the opportunity to find their tune. They journey through foreign land and vast country sky all by their lonesome, on the search for a new life. They face prejudice, heartbreak, and uncertainty; yet, they stop at nothing to reclaim their sovereignty…

    Darn tootin’, Mawlee Jones is a concept— representing the trials and tribulations of the journey towards authenticity; they simultaneously navigate their fluid, complex internal landscape and the external trek, seeking the right environment to live and love freely. 

    Written and performed by the queers, for the queers.
