Southeast Engine was formed in 2000 by Adam Remnant (lead vocals, guitar) and Leo DeLuca (drum kit, percussion). Both attended the same high school in Dayton, Ohio and grew up in "The Gem City" during its musical heyday of the 1990s. Underground bands like Guided By Voices, Brainiac, and Swearing At Motorists made significant and long-standing impressions upon the two youngsters.
Around 2000, the pair moved to Athens, Ohio and were equally inspired by the Appalachian old-timey and folk music of the area. Thus, Southeast Engine is a unique hybrid of the Dayton, Ohio musical underground and the Athens, Ohio folk scene.
Longstanding member, Michael Lachman (keyboards, Wandering Genie) began playing with the band soon after its formation. The three are now joined by Jesse Remnant (Adam's younger brother) on bass guitar and harmony vocals and multi-instrumentalist, Billy Matheny.
The Wrens (Absolutely Kosher Records) have been pivotal to Southeast Engine's progression. The two bands played together for the first time in 2005. Charles Bissell, songwriter for The Wrens, really took to Southeast Engine's music and lead the band to Cory Brown of Absolutely Kosher / Misra Records. The band signed to Misra in February of 2007 and released "A Wheel Within A Wheel" later that year.
"From the Forest to the Sea" is the title of the group's next album. Recording commenced in a forsaken, 1800s high school auditorium in the hills of Stewart, Ohio. It will be released in early 2009.
Midtown Dickens began as a ragtag, learn-while-you-play duo of best friends Kym Register and Catherine Edgerton. The project was born in the post-industrial blues town of Durham, NC when the pair began collecting orphaned instruments from generous friends and back alley dumpsters. They developed an unrefined brand of punk-folk that drew from old time bluegrass and the anti-folk minimalism of the Pacific Northwest. Eager to include more friends in the project, the pair rallied a DIT (Do-It-Together) front-porch collective of players who shared instruments such as the banjo, accordion, musical saw, trumpet, trombone, guitar, drums, mandolin, upright bass, harmonica, glockenspiel, spoons, and whatever else was lying around. The band soon solidified into a cohesive quintet, embarking on a darker and more extensive exploration of folk music, while still rooted in the earnest songwriting of Kym and Catherine.
Tommy & the Tangerines
