WolfCryer is the adopted moniker of singer/songwriter Matt Baumann (born in St. Louis Missouri).
A former classical and jazz musician, Matt quit 20 years of playing the saxophone to teach himself the 4-string (so-called plectrum) banjo and start again as a folk musician.
WolfCryer is a one-man show on banjo, vocals, harmonica, and guitar; he writes his own personal, often very dark songs.
His first self-titled E.P was recorded during the summer months of 2011 and was released in June of 2012.
Mark Utley is an Indiana-born singer/songwriter who has called Cincinnati, Ohio home for the last 22 years. He is the driving force behind the acclaimed roots-rock/Americana band Magnolia Mountain, the honky-tonk Country outfit Bulletville, and the two Music for the Mountains fundraising concerts and compilation albums.
A prolific songwriter, arranger, and interpreter of songs, Mark has written, recorded, and released almost 70 songs in the past five years. In addition, his song "There is Enough" was recorded and released on The Tillers' second album, By the Signs, and he contributed the musical bridge to "Killin' the Flower" and many of the bass parts for Shiny and the Spoon's Ferris Wheel album.
Mark is a three-time nominee for CityBeat Magazine's annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards (CEA's) in the Songwriter category. He released his debut solo album, Four Chords and a Lie, in July 2013.
In addition to performing locally and regionally with Magnolia Mountain and Bulletville, Mark also plays out with stripped-down Trio and Quartet versions of MM, as a duo with bandmate Renee Frye, and as a solo act (including performances at the 2013 Bunbury Music Festival and the 2013 CEA award ceremonies). He also currently moonlights as the bass player for Covington, KY-based Wonky Tonk and the Holiday Ramblers.
Mark is currently at work writing new material for planned 2014 releases by both Bulletville and Magnolia Mountain.
ACT 1 SCENE 1
During the finishing of Josh Eagle and The Harvest City’s first record Show Your Teeth, frustrated with overindulgence, sins against himself, and a slight writer’s block, Josh booked a flight to Hawaii. It was 3000 miles off the mainland where Eagle begun to stick his hands in the dirt, gaining knowledge of farming and working on what would become 2011’s A Good One is Hard to Find. Eagle’s distance away from his hometown allowed the head and the heart grow stronger. The remainder of time away finished up along the HWY 1…Monteray, Los Olivos, Big Sur, San Francisco, Muir Woods. It was here where ideas became to be concrete. The outcome of Eagle’s hiatus were songs gifting homage: memories of hometown Cincinnati, romantic Hawaiian escapes, and a young man’s desire to become one with himself and the vast American landscape. Welcome home.
