Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside

Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside

Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside's new record 'Untamed Beast' (Partisan Records) 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' (Partisan Records) 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.

Juston Stens and The Get Real Gang

After playing drums for the Pennsylvania indie rock band Dr Dog, Juston Stens went solo to front his own band and play his own songs. Juston spent the last year touring around the country on a motorcycle to write and record music with members of Wilco, Spoon, Dr. Dog, Apollo Sunshine, Giant Cloud and other cool bands–a journey documented in the upcoming film, “I Lay Where I Fall.”

Katie Frank and The Pheromones

In 2012, Katie Frank began as a solo songwriter with an acoustic guitar, but it didn’t take long for the Elizabethtown native to round up a band of rootsy country-rock players around Philadelphia. Frank began working with a variety of local players, including Philly mainstay, Jim Boggia, on her debut EP. As her band evolved, Frank dubbed them The Pheromones. This group of seasoned musicians adds a rumbling, rambling Americana overdrive to her contemplative compositions, while their tight and lively playing gives Frank’s confident vocals an opportunity to shine. In February 2014, the group will release their debut LP, Counting Your Curses.
