Low Cut Connie
Since Low Cut Connie's debut record Get Out the Lotion (NPR’s Fresh Air Top 10 albums of 2011), they’ve firmly established their reputation as one of the most exciting live shows in the US, with Greg Kot (Sound Opinions / Chicago Tribune) exclaiming they are “the essence of what rock n roll should be” and the New York Times stating “The group’s live show is a strange phenomenon.”
Adam Weiner's $100 junker piano, named Shondra, is the backbone of their boogie strain of rock n roll. Recently adding longtime Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings member Saundra Williams, the result is what Rolling Stone describes as "a mix of Seventies Stones (but dirtier), the New York Dolls (but tighter) and Jerry Lee Lewis (but Westerberg-ier)...with an extra sense of bare-knuckled grit and sonic thwump.”
On their 5th studio album Dirty Pictures (Part 2), released via Contender Records, the band urges all current and former youths: Feel your feelings. Feel sadness, feel love, feel wildness. Give your feelings away to others and maybe it will lift us up. It’s this musical and emotional literacy that sets the band apart, with their world-weary but life-affirming attitude that inspires their cult following and notable cheerleaders such as Barack Obama, Sir Elton John, Howard Stern.
Rolling Stone recently included Dirty Pictures (Part 2) on their list of the 50 Best Albums of 2018 so far. In his four-star review, David Fricke called the record "a stand-alone triumph of missionary zeal." In a First Listen feature, NPR Music said, "Across five albums of piano-driven rock and soul, Low Cut Connie has proven masterfully fluent in the foundational languages of Western pop, living at the crossroads where the church house meets the roadhouse, or where the Dew Drop Inn meets CBGB... The blood that pumps through the Philadelphia band's work comes from a place that's fresh, original, and truly pledged to rock and roll."
With more than 120 shows per year, including stops at festivals like Bonnaroo, Bottle Rock, Rock The Garden, Pickathon, Newport Folk Festival and more, this little act from Philly continues to dig in their corner of the sandbox. Low Cut Connie light a fire at every show and with every record. Dirty Pictures (part 2) reminds all of us, all the little people, to keep our fires lit at any cost.
Like most bands, Sound Company started as an idea amongst friends. Billy Lease, Hunter Embry and Jeremy Grawemeyer began writing and playing music together in the fall of 2014. Different musicians filled in gaps, while the (yet to be named) group continued to write and demos for nearly two years, as all three members were heavily involved in other notable projects. In early 2016, the band recorded it's first (non-demo) song. It was written, rehearsed and recorded in six hours. "Run" is currently available at Bandcamp. Nick Hall and Jaime Innis joined the group in the summer on 2016 and work on the bands' first full length is underway.
Zach Longoria Project
The Zach Longoria Project is an 11-member band from Louisville with an incredibly soulful vein. With R&B seated at the core of their music, ZLP weaves elements of jazz and a touch of old-school this & that to create what they like to call "Kentucky Fried Soul". Their music has just the right amount of the south mingled in.
ZLP is a collaboration of musicians who are all in it for the love of music, and are driven by the passion of creating it. They came together in 2013 in a town that is much smaller than it seems. Zach had a vision early- to have a band that was made up of people who are good to each other and share the same set of values, musically and by virtue. This group is a close-knit partnership of kindred spirits, and it shines through in the music they put forth.
In July 2014, ZLP released their self-titled album. They were also featured on WFPK, a Louisville radio station, where they participated in the "Live Lunch" series.
