The Senators have fashioned a sound that harkens back to the early Folk, Americana and back-beat Country while maintaining a spirited and relevant edge… with songwriting that is innovative and refreshing, but at the same time rooted deep in rich tradition.
The Lions Club
A band of kids who fell together the same way a seven year old would fall out of a tree.
The Hunter Johnson Band
Hunter Johnson is a singer songwriter from Phoenix Arizona whose music walks the line between country,rock & roll, and blues. In the summer of 2011 he started an original project called The Regretting Man and played many shows both solo and with a backing band. In October 2012 Hunter started performing under his own name and began writing songs for his upcoming album. The formation of the Hunter Johnson Band in January 2013 has added a new dimension to Hunters music and songwriting. Hunter released a collection of early songs online titled “The Very First” in February of 2013, these songs represent a small piece of Hunters earliest work while performing under The Regretting Man name. He will be releasing a new album in June 2013 on CD,LP and Digital format and can be seen performing solo and with the Hunter Johnson Band.
MR. MUDD & MR. GOLD
Named after a Townes Van Zandt song about a wild game of five card stud, Phoenix's Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold have been delivering their self-described "two-man bastard child of country, folk, blues, bluegrass and rock" to an ever-growing audience in America's Southwest. Stomping and hollering on stages with the likes of Langhorne Slim, Shovels and Rope, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band and more, the outfit seems to earnestly and effortlessly embody the spirit of Van Zandt himself in a style all their own. You can call it folk, bluegrass, Appalachia or country; the band seems concerned with little else than making pure music that gets the crowd moving, if a little rowdy while doing it. With the debut release of their self-titled "Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold" the duo seems hellbent on taking their unique sound to the national stage. And quickly. 39 minutes of barnstormers, the 11-track album features authentic Americana with a few tips of the hat to their influences by way of covers of classic Howlin Wolf, Lightnin' Hopkins and Townes Van Zandt numbers. Recorded at Arixzona's Audioconfusion (Andrew Jackson Jihad) the album runs the gamut from hard-driving banjo-driven melodic folk and dirty suitcase-drum-infused acoustic rock, to haunting a capella numbers and soul-infused updates of 1940s acoustic blues.
