“Hero Jr.’s album is a polished survey of modern rock that isn’t too quirky or too brutish to turn off mainstream listeners. Lead singer, Evan Haughey, sounds like Kings of Leon front man Caleb Followill when he’s worked up and going for broke. Hero Jr. has everything in its right place. Haughey’s guitar licks, which range from gritty to artfully restrained, sound great, and his voice is radio-ready.” – David Lindquist / INDIANAPOLIS STAR
“Hero Jr. plays a solid post 90’s rock with a radio ready sound. They rock it out with a top 40 consciousness. In a music scene full of art rockers, I’m glad to see a band that’s not afraid to be likeable.” – Wayne Bertsch / NUVO WEEKLY
“Hero Jr. seemed to stumble on a formula for success right out of the gate: write a strong, catchy record, promote like hell and play the biggest shows you can get your hands on.” – Dan Fahrner / MUSICAL FAMILY TREE
“Straight-up, no gimmicks rock n’ roll.” – INDY CONCERTS
Wilfred E. Sieg III (vocals), Nathan Fessel (guitar and vocals), Lamar Cornett (drums and vocals), and Scott Harrett (bass and vocals) Josey Earl (guitar and vocals)
Brother Wolves howl from the banks of the muddy Ohio River in Louisville, Ky. Their sound is fronted with introspective lyrics and haunting vocals by Wilfred E. Sieg III. On guitar, Nathan Fessel and Josey Earl balance driving melodies with ambience, and soaring leads while bassist Scott Harrett delivers the low end with rhythm & deep grooves. Lamar Cornett fills the remaining voids with syncopated beats and mountains of atmosphere.
Dan Tedesco is the quintessential modern-day troubadour, narrating the American experience in song honestly and intimately, and with a big sound to boot. A solo artist, Tedesco's stage show is framed by a minimalist production that finds him belting out folk-spiced rockers from behind both acoustic and electric guitars while foot-stomping percussion rounds out many of the arrangements—this is one solo artist who won't seem out of place on a bill with rock bands. Interludes at the piano lighten the mood a little, but only a little, as the distorted Rhodes and Wurly sounds only contribute to Dan's stage presence. Overall, you can expect the twang of John Prine, the attitude of Ike Reilly, the picking of Steve Goodman, and shades of Paul Simon. Similarities aside, however, Dan Tedesco is at one extremely talented and intensely original.
Rolling through 30 states and clocking in over 200 shows in 2012, Dan Tedesco has hardly had time to breathe. A true road-warrior, Tedesco is supporting his current release, "Tracks On Fire" (3/10/11). Produced and engineered by Duane Lundy (Jim James, Ben Sollee, These United States, Vandaveer) at Shangri-la Productions in Lexington, KY, "Tracks On Fire" is a raw, stripped-down batch of songs offering a both haunting and hopeful perspective on life in 2012 America.
