Hailed as "one of the best young bands in America," Filligar is the rock n' roll quartet comprised of the three Mathias brothers—Johnny, Pete, and Teddy—and their lifelong friend Casey Gibson. Drawing comparisons to a "young Rolling Stones" and called "the next Kings of Leon," the band gives classic rock their own unique and distinctly modern edge. They've headlined sold out shows at the nation's most acclaimed venues, toured the United Kingdom to wildly enthusiastic audiences, and recently supported both The Black Keys and My Morning Jacket. Their album The Nerve is currently nominated for Best Rock Album at the Independent Music Awards. In December 2011, the powerhouse music blog RSL named Filligar one of the top 8 live acts in the USA, along with fellow Windy City band Wilco.
"This heavy Minneapolis foursome's moniker refers to the unique method they employ to keep perfect, 4/4 time: each member hits a bass drum simultaneously with his foot while playing his instrument! A strange setup, yes; but it's in no way a distraction – they're so in-sync it sounds like one drumbeat… In addition to their focused, razor-sharp attack, their other secret weapon is the dynamic, jaw-dropping voice of Gabriel Douglas. He effortlessly toggles between a whiskey-fueled, gravelly drawl and a stimulating, larynx shredding bellow." – THE BIG TAKEOVER
"Douglas is about as nice and as warm as a man can be and yet, he's a barrelhouse of sparks and anguish, of grumbling and steam… He gets riled up and he sometimes sounds like Jim Morrison when he does… It's the kind of music that you stomp to, that you listen to when you're a couple drinks in to let yourself feel a little bit better." – DAYTROTTER
"Wooly-bearded frontman Gabriel Douglas is a deft rawwwk howler with deep, devilish undertones, sort of an unholy blend of Patterson Hood and Glenn Danzig. And the whole unit has an uncanny tightness, which may or may not come from the inherent fact that they all have to literally play in step." – THE STAR TRIBUNE
"Finally – from Minnesota a quartet of young lions who have released sixteen large slabs of blues that don't beg for attention – they command your ear and your ear is happy". – THE DEAD HUB
Daphne Lee Martin

Boasting a new cast of characters in a deeply provocative and reflective story, Daphne's live show leans heavily on trip hop, blue-eyed soul and prohibition-era voodoo all set in a seedy cabaret. Moxie was produced by Bill Readey, right here in New Haven, and features several guests from the wealth of the Elm City's music scene, including John Panos (Mates of State), Matt Lindauer (Sugarbat), Eric Stevenson (Pocket Vinyl),Milksop:Unsung, Matt Thomas (M.T.Bearington), Sam Perduta (Elison Jackson) and Erik Elligers (Goodnight Blue Moon).
