Dax Riggs

From the swamps of southern Louisiana comes the apocalyptic folk rock of Dax Riggs: starting with the teenage death metal of Acidbath on through the gothic dixie-fried trash rock of deadboy and the Elephantmen, Dax has opened for artists as diverse as Queens of the Stone Age to Leon Russell. Like Leadbelly with a devil on his back…Outsider music, for your dying radios, in the basement at the end of the world

"As if Jeff Buckley covered Ziggy Stardust on the banks of the Mississippi Delta" --ROLLING STONE

"His low Delta howl is the pretty, pained yelp of a wounded swamp animal" --THE NEW YORKER

"Music as much informed by Southern gothic country blues as it is by metal" --ESQUIRE

Tom Heyman

Singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist Tom Heyman started playing and recording in the late 1980s with the Philadelphia based band Go To Blazes. He wrote songs, played guitar, and the band released 5 full-length records and toured the US and Europe extensively before breaking up in 1997. After relocating to San Francisco in 1998, he began working as a sideman, eventually joining local favorites The Court & Spark, as well as Chuck Prophet’s band. All the while he was discovering his voice as a solo artist and bandleader. His second solo record Deliver Me, was critically acclaimed, receiving 4 star reviews in both Mojo and Uncut magazine, and songs from the record were heard in the TV shows True Blood, Justified and Damages. Heyman recorded his third solo record, That Cool Blue Feeling, in Portland, Oregon with Mike Coykendall (M. Ward) producing and Rusty Miller (Kelley Stoltz, Jason Lyttle) and himself covering the musical bases. The record was written mostly at night, after long shifts tending bar, and is an examination of the loneliness and alienation of the nocturnal life, and the true cost of love.
