Young Heirlooms
Young Heirlooms
Kelly Fine and Chris Robinson have been captivating audiences in the Mid-West region for the past three years. Their soaring harmonies have silenced and tamed crowds of varying textures. Focused musicianship shines in every element of their songwriting. Young Heirlooms' name articulates their style and take on their fusioned genre. Young alludes to the modern spin on the traditional sound of folk music. Heirlooms are items or ideologies handed down from generation to generation. Young Heirlooms' music has a sound that is handed down from a bygone era, loved for its history, but remains in a new contemporary setting. A mixture of pop-folk and americana songwriting begin to describe the unique style of Young Heirlooms.

"I love it when I happen upon an unplanned supergem. That occurred at The Know Theatre’s smaller stage, where I wandered in on The Young Heirlooms’ music. From Dayton, singer/songwriter Kelly Fine is fantastic. Backed by mandolin, guitar, horns and bass, this six-piece was effortlessly bleeding out catchy, tight songs that were touching and definitely ear-grabbing. It seemed like they were having a hell of a lot of fun, and the vocals were amazing. No fancy clothes or gimmicks here, just pure talent, and I was absolutely taken with them. They gave the vibe of creative, natural artists who gelled completely. Hey, this Folk Pop symphony of sounds just worked. I would definitely buy the CD." - C.A. MACCONNELL, CityBeat

DAAP Girls
DAAP Girls
Cincinnati's DAAP Girls are a group that live and die by their tape machines. After the release of their debut Tape Songs, recorded in an old Masonic Lodge on a worn down 8 track machine, the Girls returned to the studio to destroy a couple more reels and reels of tape. The result, Look Inside your Love, is a howling, messed up affair bleeding together garage and r&b, punk and old soul.

Lead by singer Stuart MacKenzie's shredded voice and Mike Felger's barbed wire guitar, DAAP Girls lay down a stripped, heavy rhythm. Organist Alex Duckworth purrs and snarls while horn section, saxophonist Brain Gilronan and trombonist Colin Thompson, respond to all the calls. All the while drummer Daniel Peterson and bassist J Duckworth experiment with shoving Pressure Drop down the throat of Motown and golden oldies.

DAAP Girls came together when Stuart MacKenzie wrote a stack of excellent songs and decided he wanted to start wearing a suit. Whipped into shape by J Duckworth and Daniel Peterson the songs became 2013's Tape Songs which lead to opening for Weezer, a “Best New Artist” award from the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, a set at the Bunbury Music Festival and a lot of sweaty exciting shows.

More members jumped on board along the way until the Girls became a 7 piece machine wreaking havoc on Cincinnati's tape machines. The DAAP Girls have decided to give the tape machines a little rest, taking their show, a combination soul-review and basement party, on the road in support of Look Inside your Love, coming this summer on LP from Soul Step Records.
In Details
In Details
In Details finds its identity at the three-way intersections of songwriting obsession, the need for charisma, and a yearning for release. The music combines acoustic warmth and digital shine over a dynamic yet steady rhythm. The lyrics desperately exude longing and heartbreak, yet the songs are wrought with affection.

In The Pines
In The Pines
In The Pines is a Psychedelic rock trio from Cincinnati, who just recently released their self titled E.P.

Founding Fathers
Founding Fathers
"The Founding Father’s are musicians who list greats like Beck, Ween, and LCD Soundsystem among their biggest influence and it seems like the crowds are down with that. Its hard not hear the influence of the Talking Heads when the band hits hard- but only because they love you. When Hands come out of pockets, heads begin to bob, and the scene kids start to listen then you know the sonic stupor that lays over the city has been broken. The Founding Fathers are on the scene. And what a scene it is. Fledgling but on its way up The Founding Fathers are at the crest of a musical wave about to crash in southern Ohio. From the mean streets of Norwood to Riverside bars embracing rock shows Cincinnati is starting to tune in and show up. Thats great news for The Founding Father’s who thrive on bigger stages with bigger audiences, feeding off the energy of their ever-growing fan base."
