Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons

Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons

Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons (Providence, RI) draw musically from the sounds of classic country, folk, and rock n' roll, while the highly literate lyrical content takes the listener down roads never before traveled. Fletcher's story-driven tales of life's losing end are balanced by those that search for redemption in a mixed-up world that blends the 19th century seamlessly with the present day. Their critically-acclaimed sophomore effort, White Lighter, along with their legendary live performances have propelled them to be one of the top Americana prospects in the country.

Formed in Fall 2010, Brown Bag is a fresh, organic rock & roll band hailing from the Southside of Chicago, IL. Influences range from folk, rock, jam, jazz & more.

Of The Poet

Adrian Krygowski

One of the first things Train Case Management was asked to do after signing Adrian, was to build a consistent band in the Nashville area. (Those from the area know musicians move around alot in a vast scene). Adrian had already been playing with Paul Niehaus on Pedal-Steel (Calexico, Justin Townes Earle, Lambchop) for a few months, with several new songs and Nashville-local showcases needing a fuller sound. TCM immediately found Jared Manzo, after playing with Derek Hoke & Chris Scruggs, and the consistent 3-Piece was formed.
With a rotating cast of drummers, Aaron Dister (Heypenny), Simon Roper (St. Johns), Joe Curet, etc., the band tracked "Roam", all brand new songs since Adrian moved to the East Nashville neighborhood. With the release of the LP, the full-band has only gotten more prominent in the scene, with well-known showcases such as 8 off 8th, $2 Tuesdays, Daytrotter, New Faces, Terryfest, and co-headlined their first date at The High Watt in May '13, with Music City Mayhem's darlings, Mercy Bell.
