Toney Rocks

http://www.toneyrocks.com/default.html
TONEY ROCKS dives into the belly of soul blues rooted rock music. A versed composer that’s hard, if not impossible, to box into one specific genre, Toney Rocks conscious penmanship reveals a poet that identifies with today’s struggles and triumphs such as homelessness, love, human struggle, and self-liberation.
Far from a one trick pony, he performs every instrument featured on his releases as well as pens each song and produces them. From there he has released two albums, “Born to Live Free” and “Toney Rocks”, both of which are featured on airwaves around the world. On stage, Toney Rocks rotates from guitars, to piano, and even to congas, delivering explosive concerts across the globe.
Inspired by all genres of music, Toney Rocks began his music career as a classically trained drummer, performing in a wide range of groups from jazz, Latin, rock, and blues. After becoming stagnate artistically, he turned his focus to singing and using the guitar in addition to all of his musical skills as tools to share his music.
Beyond the stage, Toney Rocks is known for his passion for teaching. He has led impacting music workshops around the United States. In 2011 he self-published The Ultimate Guide to Artist Development that details a 5 step road map to developing a successful artist brand. He then followed up with the audio program 12 Steps to Successful Artist Development. He still leads music workshops dealing with independent artist development, music production, and songwriting around the country.

Mike Vial with special guest Denny Cottle (everybody knows Denny !)

Mike Vial is a singer-songwriter from Ann Arbor, MI. He discovered his love for music as a kid when he found a guitar at a family member’s house and gave it a strum; since then, he has never put a guitar down.

Mike’s music has been marked by two existential crises, the first being his experience auditioning at Michigan music programs, but not being accepted. “That failure made me a better person,” he reflects. “I was forced to examine my identity and how music would still be a part of my life.”

This disappointment lead to a change of direction, one that developed his writing voice and poise in front of an audience. Mike attended WMU in Kalamazoo to study education and English. Getting nostalgic, Mike says, “I wrote a lot of songs between those hours attending classes, reading literature, and public speaking. I found my songwriting voice in Kalamazoo.”

During his college years, Mike caught wind of the new, emerging singer-songwriter scene, artists like John Mayer, Ellis Paul, Peter Mulvey, Iron & Wine, Matt Nathanson, and Ari Hest; and he discover the appeal of attending smaller venues, like the Ark and Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, to see his favorite performers before they hit mainstream.

For eight years, Mike performed music part-time while teaching high school English in a rural town of Michigan. He released two EPs–including working with producer Dan Achen (City and Colour; Feist)–between a busy schedule of grading papers and teaching English to high school students.

In 2011, Mike faced a second big crisis: “I loved the teaching part of education, but the grading and stress never stopped,” he says. “There were moments where I abandoned music, and it was eating away at me. I needed to make a big change to reclaim life.” Mike left his teaching position to focus on music.

Throughout 2012-2013, Mike toured a large part of the USA and Canada–playing 200+ shows last year alone–sometimes finding himself on the same club stages where he had seen his favorite performers. “Stepping on stage at the Ark last year was a milestone for me,” he said.

Another milestone for Mike was releasing his third EP, Where the Sand Meets the Tide, produced by moon:and:6 (Whitehorse, the Coppertone). The release made the top downloads list on Noisetrade. Since then, he has also released various singles, embracing the freedom of sharing music spontaneously and digitally.

Mike’s music captures his appreciation for classic songwriters (like James Taylor, Jim Croce, and Cats Stevens) and new American voices (like Ari Hest, Ben Gibbard, and Ryan Adams).

When not writing or performing, you can find Mike with his wife, writer Natalie Burg, enjoying a long walk with their giant, energetic dog Lois, through the lovely streets of Ann Arbor.

Grammy-Award winning guitarist Bill Mize wsg Bill Price @ Taffys of Eaton
May 7 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Bill Mize

GrammyAward winning guitarist  will perform Sat. May 7th – 8pm at TAFFYs.  He is a son of Tennessee, and a fitting representative of his state’s rich musical heritage. His critically lauded fingerstyle compositions are fluid and intricate, and their delivery masterful. One suspects an influential teacher, and one would be right. “I received most of my musical education from a cheap Zenith radio,” says Mize, who as a child drifted off to sleep to the decidedly non-sleepy lullabyes emanating from Nashville’s WLAC and WSM and Knoxville’s WNOX.

http://billmize.com/

Maybe that’s why critics speak of  his ability to “transport” the listener; the music itself has been transported. The links to his Tennessee roots are unmistakable, but so are the elements of the far wider musical realm he inhabits, and the mixture is as intoxicating as Tennessee moonshine. With a twist.

***************************

Bill is a past winner of the National Fingerstyle Guitar Competition at The Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas.  Guitar Player Magazine has labeled this event the “U.S. Open of guitar competitions.” Bill received a GRAMMY Award for his collaboration with musician and storyteller David Holt on the recording Stellaluna, and has been featured on the popular guitar compilations “Windham Hill Guitar Sampler” by Windham Hill Records and “Masters of the Acoustic Guitar” by Narada Records. In 2009, Bill’s music appeared in the  Ken Burns documentary “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.” Mel Bay Productions transcribed Mize’s second CD, “Tender Explorations,” into a songbook, and his original compositions have been transcribed for Fingerstyle Guitar and Acoustic Guitar magazines.

 

Bill Price

http://www.billprice.info/

 

Bill Price TAFFYSAs a fan of The Beatles and Bob Dylan as a teenager, Bill Price set his sights on being a songwriter. “I don’t know if it was the realization that I was always going to be just an average guitar player or the fact that I always have an opinion that got me headed in the songwriting direction. But for whatever reason, I just got that fire. I was inspired by certain music to try and do the same thing, and I still am.”

Early collaborations with his cousin Dave Price and later on with Mario Noche were also based around writing original music. “Dave was the first person I knew that actually thought about having a concept for a song. Being in my early twenties, I thought that was pretty unique.”

The collaboration with Mario Noche was also a fertile creative period. “I think we both respected each other’s songwriting ability and that inspired us to always try and bring something of quality to the table.”

In 2000 Price recorded his first album of original material, “Bones & Apples.” It received airplay in the US and Europe on college and independent radio. He also teamed up with Indiana bluesman, Gordon Bonham to form “The Brains Behind Pa” – a three, sometimes five-piece band inspired by Dylan’s songs and influences. “Gordon and I both have a love of Dylan’s music and much that inspired him, so we started a side project to kind of explore all of that music.” The result was “Old Hat,” an EP CD that contained seven traditional, folk and blues songs. It also received airplay, on college and independent radio stations across the US, in Canada and Europe.

A songwriter that is in a band inspired by Bob Dylan is bound to take the next logical step – that is, write original music for his band. “It’s an obvious extension of what we were exploring in all the old songs and Dylan’s music. It was time to apply those qualities that we like in all of that music, to our own music. Carve out our own identity.” The resulting album, “Better For The Deal,” released in May of 2006, has fifteen original songs and strongly reflects the band’s influences. It has also received airplay in the U.S. and Europe on college and independent radio.

Price released The Circus & The Gallows 3-song CD single in 2007. In late 2009 he released With the Eye of a Skeptic…, a full-length, acoustic-based CD. “It received good reviews and radio airplay overseas – mainly in Europe,” Price explains. “The reception to the Skeptic album was the most positive and extensive that any of my albums had received up to that point. It received a couple of reviews in the U.K. and airplay in Ireland which was new territory for my projects.” There were also positive reviews and airplay in Canada, France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, and Croatia to name a few others, as well as some airplay on independent and college radio in the U.S.

In 2010 Price began to expand out from his native Indiana by playing regional shows around the Midwest. 2011 saw the beginning of the recording sessions for his latest album called “I Can’t Stop Looking at the Sky.”

Price embarked on his first serious mini-tour in 2013 playing shows in the Northwest United States as recording continued through 2014 for the “I Can’t Stop Looking at the Sky” album project. The project was finalized in the spring of 2015. What had begun as a single CD, evolved into an ambitious thematic music/design/literary project. Inspired by traveling to the Western United States, the songs cover themes such as: time, home, forgiveness, grace, truth, childhood and paradox. The resulting deluxe package includes two hours and twenty-three minutes of music on two CDs, two 36-page oversized, extensive lyric booklets, a 120-page journal from the inspirational trip, a 160-page book of poems, short stories and essays, as well as other items such as buttons, posters and stickers. The project was released in June of 2015. September saw a tour of the Northwest.

Wednesday, May 11th at TAFFYs in Eaton, OH

Anthony Mullis has been playing music since he was 11 years old, long before the awkward throes of young adulthood, though the term “awkward” hardly describes a young Anthony. With his easy sense of fashion and devilishly boyish good looks, one wonders if he’s ever been awkward at all.

His first foray into group music was with Bind (who would later become Burn the Red Sky), a band whose musical movement Anthony has difficulty describing. “I want to say it was a rock band, but in reality, a metal band is a more accurate description.” It was with Bind that Anthony first began writing music. A group collaboration on the song “Alone” won admiration from fans, who would regularly make a request for the sing-along favorite during live shows.

However, as Anthony’s more evolved experiences of life and lost love moved him toward a genre that could better embody his feelings, he began to convert his musical expression toward the world of folk country and alternative rock. It was in this incarnation that Anthony’s music began to take its true and most beautiful form.

Born under the name “Bandit,” Anthony’s repertoire of original works began to bloom. Earlier compositions such as “Toward the Sun” and “Good Goodbyes” quickly captured the hearts of his audience with tales of bitter disappointments and tragic mistakes. Anthony’s more graduated work “Become” is a masterpiece of self-realization. Written by the side of the highway, it tells an almost autobiographical account of his human vulnerabilities and limitations set to a hauntingly morose melody.

By the time “Dimmest of Stars” had been written, his singer/songwriter abilities had won the admiration of more seasoned artists, like Carrie Newcomer and Ron Dye. Other artists have covered some of Anthony’s original works, literally singing praises to his creations.

These days, Anthony can be found playing solo acoustic under the alias Gus Moon. Although his artist path has taken many turns, one thing remains constant in his work: A genuine expression of adventurous emotion and spirit. Though followers of his music are often left wondering what will come next, Anthony is sure to give them a fantastic display of revolutionary soul.

Codie Prevost @ TAFFYs
May 13 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Codie Prevost @ TAFFYs | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Codie Prevost

Codie Prevost is a Canadian country music sensation. When he was 14 he picked up his first guitar, and since then his career hasn’t stopped accelerating. He began his journey on the path to fame by playing guitar, and writing songs simply to entertain his friends and family. Little did the world know that those family concerts would spark the pilot light on one of the biggest engines in Canadian country music. Codie has been nominated and won dozens of awards for his art, from the Saskatchewan Country Music Awards to the Canadian Country Music Awards.

Codie grew up on a 2,000-acre farm, where his mother runs a small town bar. He has two sisters, one older and one younger. During family events Codie would listen to his mother and his uncle as they played guitar and sang songs. These family concerts were what began to grow the love of music within Codie.

Making the leap from farm to fame has not been an easy task. Codie grew up in the 300 person farming community of Archerwill, Saskatchewan. He first learned how to play by picking up his mother’s guitar and practicing until the calluses on his fingers began to develop. After only two years of learning the guitar, Codie began to write as well. Songs began pouring out of the young artist and before long, Codie found himself, engulfed in a sea of talent competitions.

Codie’s first band wasn’t even in the country genre. When he started up his first band with some friends, they played mostly punk music. They would play covers from some of their favorite punk bands such as Goldfinger, and Greenday.

Codie thrived from the pressure that came from the talent competitions. Each one would give him butterflies right before he was about to play. As soon as the spotlight hit Codie, those butterflies would melt away like a pat of butter. That ability still resides within Codie today, even when he plays concerts with groups like Emerson Drive, or Big and Rich.

Codie went to college after high school. While studying academically and honing his craft in music, Codie was still participating in talent competitions. It was one of those competitions where Codie took the exit onto the highway of country music and never looked back.

Codie met his manager, Al Leblanc after that talent competition. Together these two were able to take the entertainment industry by storm. With the help of Al, Codie found himself playing concerts every weekend at different bars.

When Al first accepted the offer to be Codie’s manager he gave him a task. ‘You have 4 weeks to learn 30 songs.’ Codie got to work, and after only two weeks Al called saying, ‘Hope you’re ready, I booked you for a show!” Codie successfully learned 30 songs in two weeks.

Through a friend of Al’s, Codie was able to spend a bit of time in a studio which led to Codie’s first EP called, “Surrounds Me Again.” The song was released in Saskatchewan which is where more doors of opportunity began to appear for Codie.

After spending a couple years hopping from bar to bar playing shows every weekend, Codie and Al decided it was about time to record an album. This was not an easy task. Codie’s search for funding ended up at an organization called Community Features, which is put in place to help people achieve their goals by providing the financing and knowledge needed to succeed in business in rural Canada.

Codie spent a lot of time searching for funding. He went into many banks to look for loans, none of which wanted to help out.

After putting together a five year business plan, Al and Codie went in front of the board and delivered their case. The plan was a success, and Codie received the funding. Soon he was on his way to Nashville to record his very first album. Codie still thanks Community Features for believing in him and giving him the opportunity to share his music with the world.

Codie was asked to bring his guitar to demonstrate his abilities to the whole organization. He played his song, “The Road Ahead,” unknowingly foreshadowing the successful career that indeed lay ahead of the star.

Using the money from the loan, Codie was able to record his first album in Nashville, Tennessee. Codie still continued to play at the bars, but he was able to play shows with some larger Canadian bands such as Emerson Drive, and Doc Walker.

One of the goals outlined in the business plan Codie and Al presented to Community Features was to win at the Saskatchewan Country Music Awards. Not only did that first album win, but it earned Codie seven awards from the SCMAs in 2011.

Awards began to flood in for the star. In 2010 Codie won an award for Best Country Song from the Independent Music Awards and he was also nominated for the Lieutenant Governor’s Arts Award. In the three year span from 2011 to 2013 Codie won awards at the Saskatchewan Country Music Association including Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. Codie was nominated for the Canadian Country Music Awards Rising Star in 2011 and 2012.

This past year has been a big one for Codie. He has played concerts with Florida Georgia Line, Joe Nichols, and Big and Rich, he even began a tour with fellow artist Stephen Maguire called “Imagine No Bullying.” During that tour, Codie, Stephen, and the Canadian Red Cross would go from school to school playing music and speaking to the masses in an attempt to bring bullying to an end.

More shows are scheduled in April and May for the Imagine No Bullying Tour. The proceeds from these concerts go to the Canadian Red Cross.

Throughout Codie’s career, he has remained the same humble farm boy. Every Tuesday night he logs into Twitter to connect with his fans and friends. He wants nothing more than to help people through his songs and he does that. The Imagine No Bullying tour is a great example.

Codie is a great musician, a great writer, a great friend, a great husband, and a great leader. His music rocks, and his personality is solid. He is a wonderful person to know, and a talented artist and he has an extensive resume of awards and achievements to prove it.

Grayson David Schick @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Grayson David Schick

Grayson is a daydreamer, writer, & creator 25 year old from Southwestern Ohio. Raised outside of Dayton, Ohio. Grayson first learned his craft by growing up watching & witnessing his father, mother, siblings, aunts, uncles, & cousins dance and sing at any opportunity. His mother taught him piano beginning around six years old. Due to a parental grounding and home lockdown, he then began playing guitar & writing at the ripe age of 14.

He’s been compared to David Ramirez, Gregory Alan Isakov, and the Decemberists. The work from his first EP was described as “just nostalgic enough to make you smile, but not enough to make you cry; aged enough to feel rusty, but not old fashioned”. His songs have been spoken of as “oaky with a raspberry finish to them”- melodies as “thoughtful” and his voice as “a distant & melancholy feel” while having a “musty quality”.

His EP was released in Feburary 2014 and his first full-length album Part Time River (produced by Joshua) was just released in December.

Smokestack Relics can only be defined as a dirty swamp rock band.The two brothers sing about livin’, lovin’, dyin’ and the hell down below. The band is stripped down to her bare essentials creating a raw roots feel. When they’re not playing in Denver you may find them playing throughout the grand ol’ South and Midwest, scrapin up enough cash to make it to the next show with coffee and cigarettes in hand.
 

LUNG

ACHILLES TENDERLOIN

Achilles Tenderloin is Joe Augustin, an original folk-blues artist from Indiana. His music is heavily influenced by pre-war blues artists, especially Skip James and Son House, but also reflects a passion for the more lyrically focused songwriting of the American folk movement and beyond.

Songstress Dianna Corcoran Brings Australian Flavor To Country Radio

Releases Debut Stateside Single, “God Did Good”. New Album, “In America”, Now Available For Pre-Sale

– Australian-born songstress and guitar player, Dianna Corcoran is set to release her debut stateside single, “God Did Good” on Sept. 8. Dianna, who is one of Australia’s most distinguished vocal and songwriting talents, is bringing her critically acclaimed Australian voice to radio around the United States.

Dianna’s look is fresh and country, but her attitude is hard working. Her ability to breakdown and rebuild a motor engine proves she isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty.

As a young adult, Dianna’s first interest in country music came in yodeling. After finishing high school, she worked three jobs, which were in recruitment, a dog food factory and a car parts plant, where she saved enough money to make her first record.

Now, with over 400 awards, two multi-award winning albums and two Australian Country Music Golden Guitar Awards under her belt, Dianna is no stranger to success in the Country format in Australia.

Mike Rodgers @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Mike Rodgers

Mike Rodgers is the rare artist/musician who knows exactly what he wants: “I want to make my own music and go on tour singing it for everyone.” His first experience with music was when he was a kid. Born and raised in the small town of Hermitage, Pennsylvannia he started honing his skills right out of the gate. “I’ve been in and around music my entire life” says Mike. “From as young as I can remember, my siblings and myself were taking piano lessons and performing at recitals. We were also part of a local chorus group that performed a big concert once a year. On top of all that, I can still remember standing next to my dad in the church choir belting out the songs as loud as I could.”

Although the piano was his first instrument he had his sights on something else, and in 2002 he bought his first guitar. “At some point I really wanted to learn the guitar” remembers Mike. “I just thought it was something that was really cool so I kept telling my mom that I wanted one. Eventually I convinced her to take me down to the local music store and we bought my first guitar. It was an electric that came with an amp.” Noting later that he regrets selling it when he needed money he still holds onto his acoustic guitar that he bought in 10th grade.

Later, Mike attended college at Gannon University in Erie, PA, graduating with a degree in Philosophy. He then moved to Pittsburgh where he wrote and recorded his first EP Down For The Taking. “I like that EP a lot because its such a contrast of where I am now” says Mike. “My latest release is definitely more Country and Pop influenced.”

Mike moved to Nashville in 2012. “I thought I needed to be here. And, to be honest I wanted to. I came to visit and just knew that this was a good place for me to take my career to the next level” he says. One of his favorite bands is the Goo Goo Dolls. “The late 90’s pop was a huge influence for me. Its still my favorite thing to listen to to this day.” It is no doubt that this has influenced his own writing. Written, recorded, and produced by Mike in his home studio, his most recent release, the self titled album ‘Mike Rodgers,’ is a smooth blend of Pop and Country music shadowing artists like the Goo Goo Dolls of the late 90’s and today’s country music star Keith Urban. “My favorite song on the album is ‘Where My Heart Belongs.’ Its a song I in honor of my mother who passed away from cancer in 2013. It was a tough year. A lot of those emotions fueled the energy for this album.” Throughout his time in Nashville he has performed at Venues such as Tequila Cowboy, Tin Roof, Bluebird Cafe, Hotel Preston, and the Commodore Grille to name a few. Mike already has his sights set on recording and touring in 2016.

Let’s Be Leonard @ Taffys of Eaton
Jun 14 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Let's Be Leonard @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Let’s be Leonard

Let’s Be Leonard is a rock ‘n roll jazz explosion out of Upstate NY that bursts at the seams of tight, lyrical pop ballads with a daredevilish, looney jam band quality reminiscent of Phish. A full-fledged caravan, all five band members quit their jobs, invested what money they had into equipment and a tour bus, and have been living together in a music-centric collective lifestyle since late 2015. They are the darlings of their hometown, Saratoga Springs, NY, where local radio station WEQX 102.7 FM has kept the singles from their debut album COW. “Kindergarden Blues” and “Jump Ship” on steady rotation and their renowned “Barn Parties” have been known to draw crowds of just over six hundred. They landed their track (also from COW.) “Rocky Road Soup” on Relix’s 2016 January-February compilation album alongside tracks from Tedeschi Trucks Band, Twiddle, and Lettuce; and they’re excited to be sharing bills with other local favorites Mister F, Wild Adriatic, and Lucid.

“Listeners are sure to find themselves wrapped up in the groove with a good head bob – the universal body language for “I’m digging this!” The young band has gone beyond having just potential, they sound like the real thing.” – Erin Clary, NYS Music

“Keep an eye on Let’s Be Leonard. COW. is a debut that these young dudes should be proud of. They’ve put out a whole product. The songwriting stands on its own — no overproduction or pitch processing, no frills, bells or whistles. Just good organic rock with a character and voice of its own.” – Patrick Daley, The Chronicle

Once Upon a Stormy Night
by Katelin Sullivan

“I didn’t know if you folks would still be awake, but I saw the light in the window and came in to ask for a place to get out of the weather. My passengers are wet as drowned rats. The storm came up quicker than I expected. Do you have any room?”

Truthfully, there wasn’t any room. But Daddy wasn’t turning anyone away, not tonight.

Metta finds getting along with her siblings challenging, but once upon a stormy night, it proved to be even more difficult. Especially when every time she turned around, she was running into one of them. When a stagecoach arrives with more people and a wounded man, the McLaughlin family will find out that there is always more room when there is love and compassion in their hearts.

The Mulligan Brothers @ Taffys of Eaton
Jun 22 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
The Mulligan Brothers @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

 

For three weeks in September, The Mulligan Brothers parked their white bus in front of Ice Cream Studios in Portland, Oregon to record their new album Via Portland. Each day they walked down the stairs and through heavy swinging doors into the basement studio filled with guitars, drums, instrument cases, and Christmas lights. They took their places behind microphones in the boiler room, between soundproof black quilts, or in the corner of the control room beneath antelope and elk heads hanging on the walls to record their songs of murder, loyalty, heartbreak, and misplaced dreams.

Each session began with two hours of testing microphones, and tuning and changing instruments as producer Steve Berlin and engineer Jeff Saltzman prepared for every note.  Berlin is the saxophone player for Los Lobos, but he has also been involved with Grammy-winning projects for Los Lobos, Buckwheat Zydeco, Ozomatli, John Lee Hooker and Los Super Seven.

“A friend gave me the Mulligan Brothers’ first CD and I told them to call me if they wanted my help with the next one,” says Berlin. “It was a slam dunk. The songs are great and the band is great. Ross’ voice is a unique, magical instrument that can work for any age and any demographic. They also came in prepared with a firm handle on what they want. That spoiled me because a lot of my time with young bands is working on arranging and orchestration. These guys are amazing people and seem happy to be here and to have this chance.  I couldn’t have scripted this any better.”

The Mulligan Brothers are: Ross Newell (lead vocals, guitar, and songwriting); Gram Rea (fiddle, mandolin, viola, harmonica and vocals); Ben Leininger (bass and vocals) and Greg DeLuca (drums and vocals). Via Portland is the second album for the band from Mobile and Baton Rouge that met playing in bars in Mobile and took a name that means second chances. Expectations are high for the follow-up to The Mulligan Brothers, their popular debut album released in June 2013 that created passionate fans across the country and was in the Top Ten of CD Sales at the 2014 New Orleans Jazz Fest.

“The high expectations make this a bit terrifying,” says Newell. “When people say they want it to be as good as the first one, they mean that they want it to be the same as the first one. That is impossible. Those songs have already been sung and those stories have already been told. I have been nervous along each step of this recording process. I don’t know when the big relief comes, but right now it is a lot of little reliefs. There seems to be more opportunities with this second album.”

The music is still a blend of alt-country, blues, and folk that sounds like the Lumineers with a hot fiddle and the song writing of Townes Van Zandt, but Via Portland is a smoother album with more harmony and background vocals and dynamics in the instrumentation. The lyrics in Via Portland are once again built on Newell’s poetic imagery and storytelling in a warm, sincere voice that is full of feeling whether it is relaxed or strained. But the band is tighter now and more confident in themselves and one another. They play together most nights each week and the new songs evolved in front of audiences, giving each musician time to develop his parts.

“We now spend most of our time traveling and playing shows and we have so little time to spend making the album, so we had to make the most of this” Newell says. “The arrangements we played in the studio are the skeletons for everything we play live. We don’t want to create listener fatigue with the same tone for eleven songs, and changing the textures and dynamics for every song keeps us from having to be a show band that plays pop, rock, and orchestra.”

Via Portland is the first time The Mulligan Brothers recorded at the same time in the studio together. The Mulligan Brothers was recorded at Dancing Dog Studios in Daphne, Alabama, around work, gigs, and family schedules. Rea, DeLuca, Leininger, and Newell had just begun to play together and there was little time for rehearsal.

“When we made The Mulligan Brothers, we didn’t know we were making an album people would be so passionate about or that we would be so proud of,” DeLuca says.  “We just knew it would be good because Ross writes killer songs.”

“The first time we had to record separately and it was passing the baton to the next one in the studio,” Rea says.  “This time it was good to get away and completely concentrate on recording. We drove from Mobile to Portland and played gigs along the way and we lived together in a house during recording so there was time to work everything out. We tracked together and that captured more feelings and gave us a different perspective. “

Via Portland opens in the a cappella harmony of “Wait for Me” about a ramblin’ heart and a troubled mind that is not ready to let go of what it had. It is the last song that Newell wrote for the album and the band’s favorite:

Wait for me like the river bed the water/Wait for me with the dishes and the debt/Wait for me I’m trying, I’ll try harder/Wait for me don’t give up on me yet.

The centerpiece of the album is “Calamine,” a haunting tale of violence sparsely told by Newell and his J-45 guitar while harmonies, cymbals, shakers, and a jangled piano (played by Berlin) lurk in the shadows, warning of an unhappy ending:

In hindsight it was pestilence not providence that Calamine was there/When I spotted Hobbs closing the shop and sweeping up the hair beneath his chair /A bell that hung over the door announced our entrance past the closed for business sign/Hobbs was covered up with holes and bleeding out when that bell rang a second time.

“When I wrote ‘Calamine,’ it was more of a movie script, and I had to cut a lot of it,” Newell says. “It is a fictional story, but those characters are real to me and I see them every time I sing the song.”

Newell had only a few months to write eleven songs to fill the album, but he carefully wrote the songs that challenge himself and the listener. “I don’t want to write a song that just leads to the next rhyme,” he says.  “I sing these songs hundreds of times a year and it is important for me to identify with that song every time. If I have to fake it while I write it, then I am going to have to fake it every night, and that just seems like a miserable existence to me.”

“Run On Ahead” is based on Newell’s conversations with his girlfriend, Carley.  The song is personal to Newell and Berlin used the demo track because the emotion in Newell’s voice could not be recreated in the studio. “It is about unselfishly caring for each other,” Newell says. “I have been in enough relationships to know that it’s not easy to love someone that does the job that I do.  When I am gone for long periods of time, she handles it so gracefully and everything is done in a loving nature.

“I woke up loving you again I made coffee in your favorite cup/Then I washed all your snap shirts and your jeans/It’s funny I can feel your love so strong from out there on the road/And you can feel mine while you’re running down your dreams

The song was written as The Mulligan Brothers began touring farther away from home. The bookings have grown beyond local weekends at The Flora-Bama or the Brickyard into weeks crossing the country for shows in Pittsburgh, New York City, Texas, and Oklahoma.

“The members of the band are genuinely good people and that comes out in their music,” says event and meeting planner Jon Kardon, who has booked the band for events across the country. “The Mulligan Brothers resonate with people because of their songwriting, their melodies, and voices that can trade off in the harmonies. They are extraordinary, and I think they are just beginning. I hope they have a national chance to be heard.”

The experiences and success of the past year and a half is a pleasant surprise for The Mulligan Brothers. “None of us are strangers to being in a band, but this has been something else from the very beginning, from the band’s dedication to do whatever it takes to everyone’s willingness to receive it and their eagerness to be a part of it,” says Newell.  “Right now there is a nervousness before the album comes out because we care about this music and don’t want to let anyone down, but this album is honest and sincere from the ground up. We stayed true to ourselves.”

Shotgun Surprise @ Taffys of Eaton

Shotgun Surprise @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Shotgun Surprise

Shotgun Surprise started off as a father/daughter project. At the time, 14 year old female guitarist “Dali” started getting really good at mastering her instrument, so Dale (her father) searched his home area, Preble County, Ohio, in search for studio musicians to record a few songs. To our amazement, Ben, Shua & Chris was recruited to work on this project. After the first practice, everyone knew that there was something special. No more project, this was the beginning of something great. “Corrupting the Youth” is the debut CD from Shotgun Surprise, with some of the most diverse rock music that you will ever hear. Songs that are upbeat, happy, feel good to dark, melodic, and down-right spine tinkling to the heart and soul of Shotgun Surprise, which is guitar-driven, slam this riff down your throat, songs.

The Apollo Affair @ Taffys of Eaton
Jul 1 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
The Apollo Affair @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

The Apollo Affair at TAFFYs July 1 – 8:00pm. 

Formed in the winter of 2013 in a cramped one bedroom apartment in Southeast Wisconsin, The Apollo Affair is an acoustic experience that redefines the expectations associated with the “singer-songwriter” genre. Comprised of guitarist Chris Shanafelt and vocalist and frontwoman Megan Mehl, the duo have been heating up the Midwest with their feverish music and aggressive performances. With 2 EP releases under their belt (sampler “3P” in 2013 and 6-track “FEVER” in 2014) and a darker, heavier full-length release on the way, The Apollo Affair possesses an undeniable drive that borderlines upon obsession.

Chris and Megan met in the fall of 2010 while both were studying classical music performance at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. While Megan had no prior experience as a performer outside of a formal academic setting, Chris had been writing and playing since 2005. With 2 bands (punk and ska-based “Black Tie” and garage funk-rock “MV Classic and the Rollin’ Gypsies”) and a solo acoustic career under his belt, Chris brought a wealth of variety and experience to The Apollo Affair’s songwriting. After some experimentation, Chris and Megan merged their musical backgrounds and creative visions to develop a sound that is both unique in its storytelling and poignant in its execution.

The two offer up a rapturous performance centered around their original music, while possessing a catalogue of thoughtfully chosen covers from the 1960’s to today. As Chris frenetically punches away at his guitar, Megan’s swaggering attitude and powerhouse vocals draw listeners in and seize their attention. The world in which The Apollo Affair’s music exists comes to life with Chris’s playing, establishing the moody atmosphere in which Megan’s characters live. She croons, growls, belts, and screams into melodic lines that demonstrate her acumen for impassioned songwriting. The Apollo Affair aims to give listeners the uncompromising, scintillating energy of a full rock band within the nuanced context of an acoustic duo.

The Apollo Affair are currently booking and performing shows around the Midwest. They are also in the midst of putting together material for a new full-length acoustic album, which they hope to release in Spring of 2016.

Butch Ross @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Butch Ross world class dulcimer player will perform Sat. July 2nd – 8pm at TAFFYs.

Turns the mountain dulcimer into a virtuoso’s instrument, drawing unexpected power and expressiveness.

When Butch Ross opened for Bill Staines last fall, he received a rare accolade: a standing ovation for an opening act. He transforms the lowly mountain dulcimer into a virtuoso’s instrument, drawing from it unexpected power and expressiveness. He mixes old country and Appalachian songs with his own wordy, literate, poetic ballads about people, places, and situations you might read about in a good book of short stories. He has a strong clear voice and a stage presence of boyish charm. –Minstrel Coffeehouse

Butch Ross is a rockstar. He plays the mountain dulcimer and in case you’re thinking “Rockstar? Mountain Dulcimer? Doesn’t compute,” let me fill you in on a little something. Butch Ross does something that no one else can touch. What he does is amazing. His genius is in the fact that he found something unique to him and he just worked it to a point where no one can come close to matching it. He’s seriously brilliant. –Hayley Graham

Quotes From the Press:

“We’re lucky to have such a talented, interesting musician living in Chattanooga” -Sean Phipps, Times Free Press

“an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary music” -Neal Walters, Dulcimer Players News

“it’s beautiful. It’s music that adults make. -Jon Berger, Urban Folk

“A Diverting Album” -Rob Weir, Sing Out! magazine

“Hand-Worn, Affable and Warm.” -Joey Sweeney, Philadelphia Weekly

“One of Philadelphia’s brightest talents” -LACH, Fortified records

He’s amazing live and this album really builds on his solo work…Never too much and always just right.” -Vanessa Wills, WPRB

“Ross will grab you on the first listen…quirky fun and lively. the songs are filled with catchy hooks and humorous lyrics. He’s bound for something good.” -Sara Barrs, Music Matters Review

Brendan Brooks

Brendan Brooks was born in 1985 in a small rural town of Wonewoc Wisconsin.  Raised in the church and knowing God Brendan first picked up a guitar at age 15.  Determined and self-taught, his youth pastor encouraged him to start a music program within the youth group at Faith Evangelical Free Church in Sparta Wisconsin and still today is active in leading and worshiping with the youth.  In 2007 Brendan helped start and joined the band Finding Fortress based out of Sparta Wisconsin where he helped write and create the album titled, Lead.

The band was featured on radio across the Midwest.  Finding Fortress disbanded in 2010 and Brendan went back to focusing on worship leading.  In the fall of 2010 Brendan took over the music program at Valton Wesleyan Church near Wonewoc Wisconsin where he currently is serving.  In the fall of 2013 God started opening doors and Brendan started a solo career.  2014-15 were big years as Brendan got connected to a producer in Nashville.

The album titled Broken was created and is nearing completion.  The album will be released in the spring of 2016.  Brendan loves the Lord and puts Him first in his song writing and performances.  For more information use the booking link at the top of the page and feel free to send a message.  May God bless.

Andrew Adkins

 

As a songwriter in Nashville, Andrew Adkins’ songs have been hailed by critics from Paste Magazine, AXS-TV, No Depression and Vintage Guitar Magazine for their unique and diverse sounds and blending of influences. He has had songs featured on ABC, DirectTV, MTV, USA Network, The Washington Post and EntertainmentWeekly.com. His song “I’m Indestructible” is featured in the trailer for the film, ‘Cymbeline’ (Lionsgate Films) starring Ethan Hawke, Dakota Johnson and Milla Jovovich. The popular music blog Consequence of Sound recently debuted the trailer for the Colin Hanks’ Tower Records documentary “All Things Must Pass” which features Andrew’s song “Fire & Brimstone”.

Andrew is a former member of the Dualtone recording group Mellow Down Easy. In 2012 he helped form the band Lions for Real. Shortly thereafter they were signed to actor Ryan Gosling and Timmy “The Terror” Anderson’s Los Angeles label Werewolf Heart Records. Recently he has released a couple of solo projects in the past year under the pseudonyms The Colored Parade and Indigenous Engines.

Glass Castles, Andrew’s forthcoming solo album, will be released on January 15, 2016.
The album is 13 new songs steeped in a varied mixture of Americana, Blues, Country with shades of Folk-Rock. Unique melodies with compelling and provocative lyrics keeps the listener engaged and intrigued. Andrew’s soulful vocals guide you in a soft yet edgy manner through stories of ghost towns, coal mines, self-doubt/self-worth, smokey bars and the precariously reckless side of love. The songs are well crafted and pieced together in a thoughtfully ambitious style. His distinct production style ties it all together in a cohesively viable, true artistic body of work.
