Ben Knight & The Well Diggers
Ben Knight plays American music. Kentucky Country music. A noble homage to generations of toil and progress. He and his band the Welldiggers bring new and original tunes that catch your attention with equal parts nostalgia and intrigue.

“To me, it’s all about the live show. I think that’s what drew me to music in the first place — the electricity in the room at a really good live show,” Knight says. “While a live show is a place to showcase musicianship and performing, I think an album is the place to showcase songwriting — being able to appreciate the lyrical content, how the words are arranged, the cadence. The biggest thing for me, after it’s done, after I’ve written it, is whether or not I give a shit about the people I’m talking about in the song — whether they’re characters or whether they’re myself.”

These are the songs of blue-collar workers, hard-luck cases and folks for whom being called a ne'er-do-well would be a step up the social ladder. Everything that's neat and tidy here gets scuffed up; every sentimental note meets a conflicted lyric or dissonant chord; every soothsayer gets a busted lip.

"Already a peer/fan favorite, McKinley and the Lonesome Sound are guaranteed to attract a wealth of new listeners with their official debut album, which will likely inspire plenty of end-of-year love as well." - Brian Baker, CityBeat
Warrick & Lowell
Warrick & Lowell
Hailing from the rolling wooded hills of Southern Indiana, at the borders of both Kentucky and Ohio, where the first ripples of the Appalachian foothills begin, Warrick and Lowell each bring their own particular brand of songwriting together, creating a sound which is both diverse and balanced in its presentation.

Backed by the tempered sound of The Nobodies' Heirs (comprised of bassist Mark Van Patten, Drummer Zaq Fox, and Keyboardist Thomas Costa), the band packages two different interpretations of musical vision and blends them into a cohesive American sound.
