Additional Information

The Daredevil Christopher Wright

Born in 2004 out of the thriving music scene in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, The Daredevil Christopher Wright unites brothers Jon and Jason Sunde with the percussion and vocals of friend Jesse Edgington. Their first full length album In Deference to a Broken Back, an expansive and collaborative effort, was released through Amble Down Records. Their sophomore album, 2012‘s The Nature of Things, is a result of asking what can be created by three men at ease with their instruments; storytellers at heart.

Where In Deference enlisted the help of a large group of friends and fellow musicians, The Nature of Things scales back. Recorded by Patrick Stolley, founding engineer for the celebrated music blog Daytrotter, the album reflects simplicity.

“With The Nature Of Things, we made an intentional effort to focus and tighten the writing. To try to confine the arrangements to elements that the three of us could perform,” says Jon.

Their classical voice training and pleasing, sometimes unexpected harmonies are evident throughout the album in pieces such as “Church” and “Ames, IA,” where we we are allowed to glimpse, in eavesdropped conversations—a couple divorcing, a meth addict begging for freedom and church bells tolling for no other reason but that the dead rest below.

Like the Wanderer who returns home only to find what’s already “written on the spine of every holy lowly man, woman, creature, and child,” the experience of seeing something in its stripped away form is “a love letter in kind” (“Andrew the Wanderer”), a gift to those who “keep hobbled hopes under lock and key” (“We Fold Inside of Us”). “The world is full of many things to be loved and despised, but also simply seen,” says Jason. “What is the nature of things? You’re looking at it, however it may be, right now.”

The Bears of Blue River

"Take a step back from the dark-lands, perk up to the love horn of the choo-choo and hop a wagon through the cornfields to a close encounter in Muncie, Indiana with The Bears of Blue River.

Find genuine folk sounds subtly diluted by urban residue. Across the plain, unrequited love songs sung from closets to the vivid attraction of opposites and more, accompanied by all the “not too precious” o...oh-ooh-oh’s and bah-bah-ba’s to keep listeners in the realm of the tender grazing primal prairie animal.

The Bears tango on the border of urban and bucolic so hum along with the beer, beards, long locks; smooth raspy harmonies…Jangle your heart and sing along with these Chicago transplants." - Jesse Jesster

The Wild Family

The Wild Family is a rockin' indie folk group from Chicago. Melding sweet soulful harmonies with dangerously smooth guitar pluckin' that will make you look in the mirror and question what your life really means.
