Mike Mains And The Branches

Mike Mains And The Branches

Like most good things, Mike Mains & The Branches came from the South. Born in Texas, and bred in Michigan, this indie rock collective has spent the last three years making waves everywhere in between. Following the release of their debut album, Home, they've used their relentless touring, unique sound, and sharp jawlines to carve out a place for themselves in the hearts of rock music fans across the country, and have now gained the attention of literally dozens of people in other countries as well. With a live show that has been praised as "above-average" and the promise of a followup record, good things lie in the future of Mike Mains & The Branches.

The Orphan, The Poet

The idea of a "music scene" is one that is lost on The Orphan, The Poet. Developing their craft in rural southern Ohio, the members of this 4-piece indie rock outfit founded their group on a musical island—not a single band or venue in nearly 100 miles.

American Opera

American Opera is a musical project consisting of John Bee and his friends. Hailing from Saginaw, Michigan and transplanted to New York City, American Opera draws comparisons to artists ranging from Modest Mouse to the Avett Brothers, Rilo Kiley to Iron and Wine. John’s trademark voice stops conversations and draws immediate attention. The depth of his vocal delivery couples with his introspective and deeply personal lyrics to make a connection with anyone within earshot.

In the three years of American Opera’s existence, he has released three EP’s, including 2013’s “Your Songs”, an EP written based on fan-submitted true stories. He has toured incessantly, with nearly 200 live shows under his belt, including stops on the Acoustic Basement stage on the Vans Warped Tour, and dates with The Avett Brothers, Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band, Murder By Death, Owen, Cursive, and William Elliott Whitmore.

American Opera will enter the studio with producer Matt Goldman (Copeland, Anberlin, Underoath) this spring to begin work on his debut full-length album.
