“Hardscrabble honky-tonk at its best, nodding to Johnny Cash and Buck Owens in equal measure. Ties of Blood and Affection is a stellar collection that could earn Pinnell comparisons to Sturgill Simpson.” – ROLLING STONE

“Mind-blowingly good. It’s my summer album so far, and pretty much the definition of ‘hard country.'” – Greg Vandy / AMERICAN STANDARD TIME / KEXP’s THE ROADHOUSE

Dylan Earl was born in Lake Charles, La., and made his way up to Arkansas after being displaced by hurricanes in 2005. Since then, he’s been naturalized by the natural state and prefers the quiet of the Ozarks over the big city music scenes like Austin and Nashville.

Dylan began touring in 2011 with an old band he co-founded called Swampbird. Since launching his solo career in 2014 he’s released “Blessing in Disguise,” a 4-track EP produced by Daniel Romano in Ridgeville, Ontario, and “New Country To Be,” which is his debut effort created, recorded and produced in Arkansas by Will Eubanks and Chris Moore at East Hall Recording in Fayetteville. He and his band, The Reasons Why, have toured tirelessly in front of this debut LP covering the United States coast-to-coast over 5 times including a few appearances in Canada, the UK and parts of western Europe and Scandinavia.

it’s sweatin’ time again. this Soultice features the incomparable Nikki Hill and her blazing band. dj sets before and after by Baldego and Joshua Asante. wear ya getdown shoes, family.

About Nikki Hill:
Nikki’s new record, “Feline Roots” will be independently released again on house label Deep Fryed Records. Out November 16, Hill lets her soul rip on this new collection of songs, displaying her now well-known stance to champion for the pioneers of roots and rock n’ roll, while remaining in perpetual forward motion, inviting anyone who wants to come along for the journey. Johnny Thunders straddling guitar, Bad Brains’ rock meets reggae, Stonesy groove, Sister Rosetta Tharpe rave up rockin’ gospel power, all receive nods of recognition. Hill is unafraid of her past or experiences, and puts it out there for the sake of the song. The songs imagine the southern soul rocker at times waving her flag in surrender, then in the next moment finding her way back into the climb, bending through supercharged blues, punk soul, revival tent gospel, rockabilly shouts, whatever it takes to get there. It’s her version of rock n’ roll that can only come from her stories. Nikki has never been afraid to take the road less traveled, and it’s clear with “Feline Roots” that she’s living every word.

Praise for Nikki Hill:
“The fast-rising, hard-charging, 20-something, North Carolina born-and-bred singer Nikki Hill has more than earned her evocative “Southern Fireball” moniker. “

— LA Weekly

“If Tina Turner and Little Richard had a daughter and raised her with the help of uncles James Brown and Chuck Berry, she’d be like Nikki Hill.”

— Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Hill is a petite powerhouse, with a booming voice that is as sweet and luscious as it is gritty and raw.”

— Portland Monthly

“Channels such rhythm and blues greats as LaVern Baker, Etta James and Ruth Brown–with a little Sam Cooke and Solomon Burke thrown in for good measure. Hill is the real deal…steeped in gospel and soul, wrapped up in a punk rock DIY ethic.”

— Time Out Los Angeles

“A rich, sultry voice…weaned on the church choir and burnished by an enthusiast’s love of good music.”

Equally comfortable on banjo, accordion, fiddle, and guitar, Carlisle has earned accolades for his versatility with performances in the UK, Canada, and across the USA, appearing with acts like Dom Flemons, Mary Gauthier, Los Texmaniacs, Cory Branan, Carson McHone, and more!

A Rowdy Faith is the partnership of Alisyn Reid and Cate Davison, combining Alisyn’s thoughtful Americana with Cate’s Southern Gothic style.

Montgomery’s stunning vocal chops and ability to draw listeners in with her natural songwriting talent should come as no surprise: her musical roots run deep. Brought up among the never-ending sound of music that flowed through her family’s Arkansas music store, her childhood was heavily steeped in Ozark bluegrass, Texas swing, Delta blues, as well as gospel and rock and roll. Surrounded by talented musicians that ran the gamut from performers on the original Sun Records to bluegrass greats and opera singers, Montgomery expanded her musical horizons and began performing whenever possible.

Classically-trained and ready to bring her own distinct sound to the world, Montgomery released her first two EP’s (Cruel in 2011 followed by Joy in 2013) before debuting her first full-length, self-titled album in 2014. She traveled the U.S. and Europe on a tour for the album, sharing the stage with artists such as Gossip, Shovels and Rope, Robert Ellis, Hayes Carll, Billy Jo Shaver, Turnpike Troubadours, Pokey LaFarge, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, Joe Ely, Moot Davis, Mike and the Moonpies, Dale Watson, Chris Stapleton, Jason James, and Sturgill Simpson, among others.

Newly named 2019 Ameripolitan Outlaw Female of the Year, Summer Dean she puts on a heck of a show! Her raw lyrics, a bare-boned honest voice, and approachable confidence is evident on any stage and set her apart from other women of today’s country music scene. From full theater seats to a packed honky tonk dancefloor, Summer’s audience falls in love with with the country songstress and quickly become loyal fans. Summer has released her debut album, Unladylike, with plans to release a full-length in 2019.

It’s no secret that rock & roll, country, soul can peacefully coexist on the record shelf, and with their new eponymous double LP, the six members of Kansas City’s The Grisly Hand have attempted to create a document that transcends genre.

Formed in 2009 by vocalists Jimmy Fitzner and Lauren Krum and taking their unlikely moniker from Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology, The Grisly Hand made an immediate splash with “Paris Of The Plains”, a catchy ode to the band’s home town from their debut EP Safe House (2010). Both the band’s garish name (which belied lovely harmonies and astute, country-tinged songwriting) and the song (which tempered genuine reverence with a dose of snark and weary humor) were indicators of things to come.

Dana Louise is a singer-songwriter, painter, hide and seeker based out of Fayetteville, AR

Hamell on Trial is the musical alias of New York-based folk punk hero Ed Hamell. A one-man explosion, he is loud-as-war one minute, stepping off the microphone to whisper to an enthralled audience the next. This is a dynamic performance informed by politics, passion, intelligence and the all-important sense of humor. His caustic wit and devil-may-care attitude has long been a favorite of anti-establishment icons Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Ani DiFranco and the critical elite inciting Rolling Stone magazine to call him “Bald, bold and superbad!” Henry Rollins says “Hamell is a one man rock show!” He has been described as “Bill Hicks, Hunter S. Thompson, and Joe Strummer all rolled into one” by Philadelphia Weekly and a “one man Tarantino flick: loud, vicious, luridly hilarious, gleefully and deeply offensive” by the Village Voice.

Heavy Blues Black Punk Metal

” A decade has now passed since the release of Twilight Ritual, the second LP from Little Rock’s DEADBIRD, which features current and former members of Rwake, Iron Tongue, Pallbearer, and more. Though much has changed in the metal world since then DEADBIRD remains steadfast in their ability to sculpt heart-wrenching and gutsy songs from the deepest, darkest places within. Years of toil and scorched southern soil went into the band’s third album III: The Forest Within The Tree resulting in forty haunting minutes of emotive turbulence and resolute grit. ”

His sophomore LP is out Spring 2019. You can often find Dylan and his boys out on the road anywhere between honky-tonks to opera houses to dingy basements. There is no improper place for his music. In fact, the closer he can get to the outer rim of normality the better. He always appreciates hospitality and a warm meal goes farther than most would expect. He prefers sleeping outside, Hamm’s beer, Thin Lizzy, the company of his peers and good attitudes.

Daniel John ” Dan ” Baird (born December 12, 1953, in San Diego) is an American singer-songwriter, musician and producer. He is best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist from the chart-topping 1980s rock band The Georgia Satellites . Baird formed The Georgia Satellites in 1980 and left the band in 1990 to pursue a solo career. He is often credited as a pioneer in cowpunk and alt-country music, which combines elements of rock music, country music , outlaw country, and punk rock .

Baird tours and records with his band Homemade Sin, which today features two ex-members of The Georgia Satellites, Baird and drummer Mauro Magellan. Former member of The Georgia Satellites bassist Keith Christopher was replaced during 2014 by Micke Nilsson. Homemade Sin also includes guitarist Warner E. Hodges, who tours and records with Jason & the Scorchers .

Homemade Sin performs a mixture of Baird’s solo material in addition to the hits and fan favorites from his years with The Georgia Satellites. To achieve a similar classic tube amplifier sound with Homemade Sin, Baird relies heavily on a vintage setup very similar to what was used during his tenure with The Georgia Satellites. Creating confusion for some fans, there is a reformed version of The Georgia Satellites featuring original guitarist Rick Richards and bassist Rick Price, who joined the group to replace original bassist Keith Christopher, who left the band prior to their fame.

Rock ‘n’ Roll ain’t pretty and neither is Scott H. Biram. The self proclaimed ‘Dirty Old One Man Band’ successfully, and sometimes violently, lashes together blues, hillbilly and country precariously to raucous punk and godless metal.

Biram ain’t no candy-ass singer/songwriter either, sweetly strumming songs about girls with big eyes and dusty highways. His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin’ and hollerin’ is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks from his ’59 Gibson guitar and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables.

Years of non-stop touring have honed his assault to a fine edge; his wide-eyed throw downs in the First Church of Ultimate Fanaticism routinely lead giddy followers to a fiery baptism.
