Amigo

Amigo jams econo in the footsteps of their punk rock heroes. Their music comes from their imaginations, where shit-kickin' east Texas honky tonks are infiltrated by weird and flamboyant art school kids and, somehow, everybody gets along famously! The music is about magic and despair, gettin' yer rocks off, not gettin' yer rocks off, being filled with innocence and wonder and then the world taking a giant dump on your head. Oh, yeah, and it's fun, too – because it's ROCK & ROLL music, y'all! Amigo looks forward to seeing everybody later this year on tour in support of their debut LP, Might Could. Be cool in the world!

Josh Roberts and The Hinges

Josh Roberts & The Hinges formed in early 2005 in Columbia, SC and immediately began touring and recording. Embedded in their style of rock and roll are blues, country, punk and soul influences that link elegant harmonies with the raunchy guitar work of Josh Roberts. Their powerful sound is raw and uncompromising, creating new rock and roll anthems that leave their dedicated fans speechless…and sometimes exhausted, yet always wanting more.


“I want to cross folk mystery with country and blues emotion and AC/DC power,” said Josh Roberts. “We want to make melting pot American music, real rock and roll music with the roots showing.”


Their first album, “The Sugar Bird Test” was released in September 2005. It’s a bash-it-out, live-in-the-studio rock record, with vocal parties and spontaneous songwriting. The album is largely a love letter from Josh to Leslie, mixed with some traditional folk themes. “The Sugar Bird Test” received excellent reviews for its ear-blowing guitar riffs and catchy, engaging choruses.


In 2007, the band released “My War Cry is Amor,” a cinematic, emotional and literary Thanksgiving dinner of rock. Although each song stands powerfully alone, this is truly an album, one that explores the dualities of man and God, love and war, and true life and death, all with virtuoso musicianship and the kind of happy accidents that made it exciting for the band to make and intriguing for fans to hear. Some songs were co-written by Ryan Monroe, a member of Band of Horses and Josh’s former bandmate in Captain Easy.
