The New Schematics
The New Schematics
Nashville’s The New Schematics spent their first fifteen months as a band proving that the Born Without Borders Tour was indeed the right name for their tour that spanned 97 shows in 42 cities across the US and Canada. As a band that quickly put so many shows under its belt, it is no wonder as to why they’ve gained the reputation as a live act with “the crowd control skills of preachers” (Cougar Microbes) whose “passion for their art is palpable” (Valslist).

The band officially began as a duo, with Cory Bishop (vocals, guitar) and Michael Bare (bass, vocals), who brought a rotating cast of bandmates on the road with them. A few months after they pulled him on stage for a guitar solo in New York City, Shanan Lau left the band that was opening for The New Schematics in order to join Cory and Michael as a full-time third member.

They now usher in 2017 with the title track from their upcoming sophomore EP, Your Year (Feb 24). The sprawling rock’n’roll soundscape coupled with the clear-cut lyrical optimism of the lead single falls right in-line with their debut that already carried “the markings of a seasoned classic,” (Will Hodge, Noisetrade).
Calumet
Calumet
Calumet first began writing in December of 2014. Conceptually realized before a note was strummed, Calumet recalls the sounds of some of it's members previous efforts (Alone at 3AM, 500 Miles to Memphis, The Frankl Project) but goes back to the beginnings of American Rock music for its songwriting inspiration. The result is catchy and comfortable, familiar like you've heard it before, but rest assured you haven't. Complex harmonies, atypical structures, and seldom sung-about subject matter serve to stimulate the listener, and set Calumet apart from past or present acts in the genre. Its that 'Dylan Goes Electric' moment, for better or worse, and we can't wait for you to experience it.
The Summit
The Summit
Put together by former Grooveshire members, Chris Scott and Mike Hennel, The Summit is a rock n’ roll super group exploding with some of the country’s most decorated musicians. Fresh off both publishing and licensing deals in Nashville, TN and Scott’s EP collaboration on Burn it Down with former Cage the Elephant Guitarist and Talkbox Rodeo owner, Lincoln Parish, the song writing duo made their way back home during the fall of 2015 to begin writing a new batch of tunes with Cincinnati’s own songwriting extraordinaire, David Hefferon. Magic instantly happened and the trio quickly began writing and polishing a whole new flare of soul-inspired blues rock n’ roll tunes, very reminiscent of modern day songwriting genius, JJ Grey, fused with the vintage tones of iconic English rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Faces and Humble Pie. Accomplished pianist and heavy blues hitter, Chris Bentley, recently joined the band full-time to provide a much needed B3 organ sound to help balance out The Summit’s unmatched eclectic style.

The band gained overnight success during the spring of 2016 with their highly energized performances and were asked to support a stint of regional shows with acts such as the Los Lonely Boys, The Band of Heathens, Tim Reynolds and TR3, and Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown.

With the evolution of The Summit’s success, the band invited acclaimed soul-singing duo “Da’Joy” to back up Chris’s insane vocal ability. Both Daria Acus and Melonie “Lady Joya” Kennedy were regular fixtures in Scott and Hennel’s previous rock outfit, Grooveshire.

“It’s a little Black Crowes, a little Humble Pie, and hell of a lot of soul! You may be able to recognize many of this band’s numerous influences in their amazing sound, but one thing’s for sure…you can’t fake soul and this band’s got soul!”

The Summit is currently working on their debut EP at The Studio Nashville with co-owner and engineer, Brooke Sutton and producer, Michael Rhodes (Tempest Music). The band is looking to drop the EP in December 2016, which will feature tracks by award winning blues player, Leo Clarke, Big Machine touring artist, Klaus Luchs and feature the amazing vocals of Lilly Winwood.
