THE WARMBLOODS (members of Low Skies, Watchers, Tenki, and Ribbon Effect)
Line up includes Michael Guarrine, Jeff Kmieciak, Leslie Lockett, Matt Pelkey, and Jacob Ross!
Soft Jolts formed in 2008 when brothers Dan and Jim Duffy recorded a six-song EP with engineer Kris Poulin. They played shows in the Chicago area and recorded their second EP in 2009. Now, following a short hiatus, the garage/psych/rock duo have recently completed a tour of the Midwest and South, and are playing several shows in support of their first full-length LP, to be released this winter.
Ghost Horses, founded during the winter of 2011, is comprised of Samantha Axton (rhythm guitar and vocals), Jeffrey Kmieciak (lead guitar and soundscapes), Joe Phillips (drums and vocals), and Dan Dietrich (bass guitar). Mr. Kmieciak hails from such illustrious bands as Tenki, Ceiling Stars, The Demilos and The Warmbloods and brings ephemeral beauty to the guitar. Mr. Phillips, founder & singer-song writer of Ceiling Stars departs from melody to bring the beat and does so, beautifully. Dan Dietrich, of The Faders, The Aquavelvets and Cowlilly, is the dark and lovely deep on bass. Ms. Axton brings the highs and the lows via vox.
