IN THE VALLEY BELOW - Angela Gail and Jeffrey Jacob - meld adventurous art rock, squelchy synth pop, harmony-laden Americana, and woozy blues into something altogether different: stylistically elusive, yet oddly inclusive. Her loaded purr cajoling his weathered inflections, they craft gauzily compelling music at once introverted and all-embracing. The duo's debut album, The Belt, dropped in 2014. It is a mysterious, mesmerized and relentlessly melodic record that bares powerful tales of lust, loss and faith like open wounds, while hinting at hidden meanings.
Indie rock duo FLAGSHIP are on a mission to make music that stirs up feelings, creates an atmospheric vibe, and makes you feel an array of emotions amidst a moving soundscape of timeless rock and roll. When the brotherhood of FLAGSHIP gathers together to innovate more of their intricate, ethereal diacoustics, it’s a virtually effortless endeavor. Their sound is visionary and vivid, much like the minds and hearts behind the instruments.
BABY MONEY is the brainchild of Chicago based songwriter Pamela Maurer. What started as a solo project has evolved into a 3-piece band based in the Windy City. Her original songs, ranging from gritty, sparse arrangements, to soulful, roof-shaking foot-stompers, are inspired by garage rockers and girl-groups of the1960s and 1970s, soul, gospel, and traditional rhythm ‘n’ blues.
