The Dune Flowers
The Dune Flowers are a modern Rocking' and Rollin' group originally from Baltimore, MD. After the release their debut album Lookin' Fine they relocated to Nashville, TN to continue their musical career and continue to float between the two cities. With heavy influence from bands in the early Rock n' Roll scene like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and The Kinks they rekindle the inspiration from the era into modern and catchy tunes.
"The musical Swiss army knife himself has assembled a team of evil villains to make his basement concoctions come alive. Jeff is best described as Mac DeMarco in an alternate universe where he doesn’t chain smoke cigs and has a very stable family life." - Blake Ruby, Red Couch Records
Described by the Washington Post as "throwback indie rock," Makeup Girl is a music lover's dream come true. From their humble beginnings as a rock duo started by singer Brody Steck and drummer Caleb Schiebel, the band has expanded and matured into something much greater.
Joined by multi-instrumentalist Johnny Leander, and bassist Avery Steck, the band is now at full power.
Drawing from the likes of Stevie Wonder, the Strokes, Funkadelic, and the Arctic Monkeys, Makeup Girl's sound can be described as an explosive combination of pop rock and other genres including jazz, R&B, latin, and funk. Drummer Caleb Schiebel tirelessly pushes his set to the height of its capabilities, pumping out tight rhythms that allow guitar lines and melodies to run wild. Audiences should expect an engaging live show, ranging from energizing rock songs to dreamy jazz inspired numbers. Makeup Girl songs are filled with surprises as the band flows from groove to groove, seamlessly switching tempo and time signatures as the songs progress.
The band is currently preparing to release their next EP “In Time” - a genre smashing collection of songs designed to take listeners on a journey through musical realms. An EP unlike any MG EPs to come before, “In Time” shows off the band’s new lineup and further expands on their songwriting capabilities. Listeners should expect a wide range of styles and mood changes throughout songs as this EP unfolds. Look out for “In Time” coming later this December.
