The Floorwalkers

Growing up together in the greater Cleveland, OH area, The Floorwalkers met as children and teenagers. Then in high school, they began playing music together from 2000-04. Part of the band moved to Columbus, OH and released a self titled acoustic EP in '05.

As a three piece, the band traveled the Midwest in support of their EP. By 2007, the whole band had relocated to Columbus. Releasing the 2008 Frankfort Ep.

While working on a debut full length album, they managed to garner a strong Midwest following. In November 2010 over 1300 fans came out to two Ohio release dates for their first full length "The Natural Road."

Since then, they have toured nationally, and remain completely independent. In a time when the music industry is reeling, The Floorwalkers have embraced the changes and built a truly grassroots following.

we are a rock and roll band from Columbus Ohio
our names are nick & jon
we make backyard bbq breakup music
the first song we wrote was its over. we were trying to write our own version of macy grays i try.
in a few hours the song was done, and later that night in a text message we decided to start a
band called DOC ROBINSON combining the two musical bookends of our influences dr dog and
smokey robinson. we would later find out through you tube search results that DOC ROBINSON
is also a world renowned fighting rooster, who has since squired several generations of fighting
roosters.
we made our first ep GOLDEN DAZE with mike landolt, who is canadian, at vital studios in
columbus ohio. It took 6 months, 237 cups of strong coffee, 74 pieces of uncle nick’s greek fried
chicken, 26 separate viewings of the music video ‘out for a rip’ by canadian artist shark tank,
and 1 bottle of moonshine.
next we made a full length record called DEEP END. It took 4 months, 13 musicians, (george
barrie, jake levy, jeff bass, aaron bishara, todd hamric, seth bain, adam bidwell, terrance farmer,
larry cook, adrian jusdanis, evan oberla, doug neel) 3 babies (frankie barrie, ella bass, ramona
d’andrea) 2 studios (oranjudio, shred shed) 66 kickstarter backers, 7 adderals, and 1 trombone
glissando.
We are putting out two records on 4.20.18 called RING OF LOVE and LICKS VOL 1. ROL was
recorded and pressed at musicol studios in Columbus, OH established and continuously
operating since 1964. The arsenal of analogue equipment it provided was an embarrassment of
riches. Keith Hanlon expertly engineered every performance, mostly live full band takes with our
first string of ringers George Barrie- elc gtr , Jeff Bass- bass and Aaron Bishara - drums. then a
small army of friends and fellow musicians came in to record. Robert Mason on piano and
organ, Riley Hall on backing vocals, Evan Westfall on banjo, Kevin O'Neil on flute and sax, Rob
Maccabee on baritone trumpet, Adam Bidwell on trumpet, and Chris Shaw on violin. We wrote 3
of the songs with help from our friends. Ring of Love w/ Rob Maccabee, Leave A Light On
w/ Taylor Meier, and Like You Do w/ Jason Quicksall.
It was then produced inside of George Barrie's Track Shack, then down to Athens, OH for Josh
Antonnuccio at 3 Elliott studios to cast his magic spells on it. Next off to Vital Studios where
Fred Blitzer mastered it with staggering precision. Also we sent Leave A Light On and Morning
Stay off to sunny Seattle to our canadian brother Mike Landy for his special gold dust. Finally
back to Musicol where it was pressed into sweet black vinyl.
LICKS VOL 1 is a collaboration mixtape we created with 12 other musicians from all different
genres.
this record represents the efforts of 14 artists working together to create something new under
the sun. jeff / ashawn / george / jake / nick / jon / liz / sarob / glenn / ashad / pxvce/ siri / aziza /
taylor / parker. all of our labors were under the jedi guidance of Joey Gurwin at his Oranjudio
Studio, where we recorded, mixed and mastered the record. made possible with the love and
generosity of jeni’s splendid ice creams / four strings brewing co. / and soul step records. 6
songs available on vinyl through soulstep records.
