Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside

Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside

Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside's new record Untamed Beast is a visceral rock and roll romp. Like a cross between "Ella Fitzgerald and Tom Waits" (Mashable) Sallie has established herself as one of the most powerful female voices in indie rock. Ford and her group - Tyler Tornfelt (upright bass), Ford Tennis (drums), and Jeffrey Munger (lead guitar) - recorded the album's 11 tracks with Adam Landry and Justin Collins (Deer Tick, Middle Brother) at Jackpot! Studios in the band's hometown of Portland, Oregon.

On the new album the band creates a powerful statement on finding freedom through defying conformity. Through clever (often racy) turns of phrase, Sallie twists traditional notions of gender and genre. She says "it's time for a girl to infiltrate the boys world of rock n roll and grab it by the balls. To me rock n roll isn't a genre, it's an energy." From the exuberantly sexy "Do Me Right" to the free-spirited cry of "Party Kids," Untamed Beast has a lust for life.

Untamed Beast is the follow up to 2011's Dirty Radio which Brooklyn Vegan called "phenomenal [and] monumental." In 2011 Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside made their national television debut on Letterman, were one of the most talked about new performers at Bonnaroo, the Newport Folk Fest and Bumbershoot, and were championed by Jack White and The Avett Brothers.

A. Tom Collins

A. Tom Collins and his band are an act hard to pigeon-hole, navigating the murky swamps of New Orleans R&B and '60s Soul, and following the cues of diverse inGluences from Tom Waits and Cab Calloway, to The Stooges and Sam Cooke. A. Tom Collins drops anchor with an impressive crash at each and every port, transfixing bewildered audiences with its strange brand of old time futurism that is as familiar as it is refreshing. Expect wild horns, surprising rhythms, catchy gang chants, and one hell of a live show led by piano-man Aaron Collins, whom Denver's alt-weekly Westword called 'one of the city's best front-men.'

In its short history, A. Tom Collins has been a featured headliner the Denver Post Underground Music Showcase in 2011/12/13, made appearances at SXSW 11/12/13, Denver's Westword Music Showcase 2010 to 13, Snowball Music Festival 2012 in Vail, the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater, Bohemian Nights Festival in Ft. Collins, New Belgium's Tour de Fat, and toured the European continent this past summer with dates in Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, and the UK.

They have shared bills with notable acts such as Alabama Shakes, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Sally Ford And The Sound Outside, March Fourth Marching Band, Nathaniel Rateliff, and the late, great T-Model Ford. This fall of 2013,the band hits the road in support of their debut full-length 'Stick & Poke', produced by the legendary Bob Ferbache(Slim Cessna's Auto Club/16 Horsepower), is available now on CD,12" Vinyl, and digitally everywhere. South West and West Coast dates TBA soon.
