passafire-band

On Passafire’s fifth studio release, Vines, the Savannah, GA based rock outfit continues to progress towards what they feel is their true identity as a band in the reggae rock genre. After starting fresh with several new pieces to the puzzle on their 2011 release, Start From Scratch, they have now teamed up with Easy Star Records (Easy Star All Stars, John Brown’s Body, The Green, Cas Haley) for what the band considers their best album yet. “Passafire continues to stretch Easy Star’s sound and style,” says Lem Oppenheimer, co-founder of the label. “They bring a harder rock edge while still grounding their music in a progressive reggae base. They fit the mold of all of our artists: dedicated, hard working, touring their butts off, and never settling for what people expect of them.”

Passafire was formed in 2003 by students attending Savannah College of Art and Design. Throughout the years, they have become a perpetually touring band playing hundreds of shows a year with bands like 311, Rebelution, Pepper, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, The Wailers and many more. Bowne doesn’t mind the grueling schedule and adds, “Touring is the best way to keep the buzz about the band going. What keeps it fun and exciting is the people we meet and places we get to see. We are in a new city every day so there’s always something to go see or do. If we didn’t tour constantly, we wouldn’t be doing as well as we are. That’s a fact.”

For Zach, most days begin in a hotel room and end a couple of hours after walking off stage, leaving a packed house of
sweaty dancers calling for more. The constant touring and the compelling live show may be the key to Zach’s success on
the road, but it is an unlikely inspiration for Another Day, as there is little similarity between what fans have come to
expect from Zach and what is offered up in this new record. Thus, Another Day is an appropriately titled album, and it is
truly an album in the classic sense—a collection of songs that come from the same time and place, inspired by the same use. Reflective and introspective, it provides a glimpse at the soul of an artist and the depth of a songwriter. Full of hope
and anticipation of the promise of another day, a new day, it is a pivotal point in the career of a touring musician. Whereas
it is a departure for Zach Deputy, it is one that he feels confident his fans can relate to, but it isn’t the end in itself.
Deputy’s multi-faceted diamond gets one side polished in this offering, and it is a side that will shine brightly for a new
audience.

Whitey Morgan is an American Honky Tonk artist from Flint, Michigan.

In Flint, the factories are closed, jobs are scarce and the people are bitter. Whitey sings songs these people can relate to. In much the same way his grandfather and mentor did over 3 decades ago, to a whole generation of southern transplants who came up US-23 to Flint looking for the good life. In the spirit of William Morgan, Waylon, Merle and Paycheck; Whitey’s melodies help people forget their problems for a few hours and serve as the guideline for drinking sorrows away.

Emerging from the Detroit area music scene, Whitey relentlessly tours the country spreading his sound and attitude everywhere he goes. He play’s honky tonk tunes in any club in any town without apology—he and his band mates drive their point home just like their families drove the cars they built on the line home from work. With a purpose.

Ripping 200+ shows a year, you can count on Whitey Morgan to deliver and then some. “If I could, I’d play everyday all day. Maybe at some point, I’ll be so lucky to have such an option.” If you asked his feverishly loyal audience, they’d firm agree with him. “My fans are nothing short of amazing. They come back time and time again and each time they bring more & more people. That’s as good as it gets in my book.”

Tillers_HRsmaller

The Tillers got their start in August 2007 when they started thumping around with some banjos and guitars and a big wooden bass. Their earliest gigs were for coins and burritos on the city’s famous Ludlow Street in the district of Clifton. The songs they picked were mostly older than their grandparents. Some came from Woody Guthrie, some were southern blues laments, and many were anonymous relics of Appalachian woods, churches, riverboats, railroads, prairies, and coal mines.
Their look didn’t fit the stereotype. They were clearly recovering punk rockers with roots in city’s west side punk rock and hardcore scene. The punk influence gave their sound a distinctive bite, setting them apart from most other folk acts- a hard-driving percussive strum and stomp that brought new pulse and vinegar to some very old songs. But their musical range soon proved itself as they floated from hard-tackle thumping to tender graceful melody, all the while topped by Oberst and Geil’s clear tenor harmonies.

** Included in Esquire Magazine’s Top 15 Bands to Watch in 2014**

***Featured on Amazon’s Top 100 Songs & Albums Of 2011 and 2012***

They never look the same at the end of their set; a pair of hip horn-rimmed glasses breaks in half, buttons become undone, and their once slicked-back hair is simply not anymore. But they wouldn’t be themselves if it were any other way; they thrive when they render themselves void of energy, and humbly hope it rubs off on the kids in the crowd, too.

They are Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes. To see them live is to experience the crux of who they are: A high-energy indie rock band dead set on producing the best live sound they know how. And boy, do they know how.

tasi

Tasi (tah-see) translates to “ocean” in drummer Tony Barcinas’ native language of Chamorro. The band formed in December 2012 when friends Tony Barcinas and Jeff Hanewinkel(bass) created a project that combines the sound and vibe of the islands, with the diverse St. Louis music scene. Tasi’s progressive style cannot be categorized as just reggae. Throughout a live set you will hear them smoothly morph style and tone into an eclectic blend of rock, blues, soul and R&B. Front man Tommy Gayfield and lead guitarist, Zack Reckamp are sure to keep you entertained while the rhythm section gets you moving and groovin’. Their self produced EP “Care Free” is now available on ITunes, Amazon and most online retailers.
