Good Old War:
Good Old War will release their fourth studio album and first on Nettwerk Records, Broken Into Better Shape. Produced by Jason Lehning (Mat Kearney, Dolly Parton), and featuring lead single “Tell Me What You Want From Me,” it follows critically acclaimed Come Back As Rain, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers, and led to national TV performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! & Conan. Good Old War has earned the loyalty of an ever-expanding fan base thanks to their captivating live shows touring along side a diverse group of artists including Alison Krauss, Guster, Brandi Carlisle and Dr. Dog.

Future Stuff:
A poppy-folk-blues duo based out of the Midwest. They've been commonly noted as a mix between Tedeschi Trucks Band, The White Stripes and Shakey Graves. They have been named one of the best up and coming bands in the Chicago-land area. The duo is comprised of Gabe Burdulis and Althea Grace. Their heavy blues influence gives their music and lyrics a sound beyond their years and can best be described as a fun vintage, but folk/pop style that will keep you on the edge of your seat while tearing at your heart strings.

The Way Down Wanderers:
Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, 5-piece modern-folk Americana act, The Way Down Wanderers, draw listeners in with energy, originality and soulful generosity. Playing, performing and writing together for just 3 short years, the Wanderers have built an enthusiastic and fast-growing following. Youthful and professionally trained, these young men captivate audiences with soaring instrumentals, foot stomping sing-alongs and a lively stage show and have created a buzz for themselves with their unplugged, off-stage encores and propensity for performing self-titled, “restSTOMPS” - free acoustic sets at rest & truck stops along their tour routes. The band’s debut, self-titled album, produced by Mike Marsh of the Avett Brothers and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX, is now available wherever music is sold.
