Frontier Folk Nebraska
Frontier Folk Nebraska
“Frontier Folk Nebraska believes in the continuing relevance of a classic‐era kind of alt‐rock that flirts with occasional messiness in order to let its organically electric sound come together without too much art‐think or conceptualism. Faith is put in the music’s energy as the right conduit to showcase interesting songwriting… Neither from Nebraska nor a folk group, Frontier Folk Nebraska is instead a Cincinnati band that sounds like the Replacements attacking power pop with their thrashing guitar‐and‐drum energy kept in check by their love for melody and appealing song structure.”
Krystal Peterson & The Queen City Band
Krystal Peterson & The Queen City Band
"Deep in the heart of Cincinnati, there’s a soulful, funky jazz sextet with enough raw energy to burn the stylus off your turntables. Meet Krystal Peterson & The Queen City Band.
While Peterson’s multi-octave vocal range is enough to get your blood pumping, she’s also backed by an entourage of talent from brass to beats. The Queen City Band could easily back Sharon Jones’ sultry chops or Black Joe Lewis’ garage funk licks, but Krystal Peterson has enough wind in her pipes to level every skyscraper in Cincinnati, so they’ve got their work cut out for them."

-David Hampton | Contributing Editor, Sly Vinyl

You never know when you might hear the music of 500 Miles to Memphis. Maybe in a honky tonk in Tennessee. Maybe at a Rock show in North Carolina. Maybe at a Punk festival in their hometown of Cincinnati. Maybe in an acoustic format at the corner bar or coffeeshop. Or maybe on MTV’s Nitro Circus, soundtracking some extreme sport stunts. The band is comfortable in almost any setting, largely because their music — a mix of scrappy Country and scorching Rock & Roll — has a magnetic, wide appeal. The Hot Topic kids get juiced on the band’s adrenalized live shows, while fans of Classic Country can appreciate 500 Miles’ true, heartfelt take on vintage C&W. With Sunshine in a Shotglass, the group’s debut full-length, 500 Miles to Memphis introduced itself as a world-class Rock band with songs that are alternately shit-kicking and heartbreaking. From the fiddle-driven, broken-glass-inducing “All My Friends are Crazy” to the closing trilogy of “Let It Rain”/”Sunshine in a Shotglass”/”The Regret,” singer/songwriter Ryan Malott and his tight, rousing band concocted a true, complete album, full of plenty of soul and depth, but also lots of instantly memorable Pop hooks. Don’t believe me? Then just listen to Sunshine once or, better yet, get out to a show. 500 Miles to Memphis is one of the most promising young bands in North America right now. - Mike Breen, City Beat

"You're really...the definition of creativity..." ~Harry Connick Jr.

"You have a real point of view. You're an artist, that's plain to see..." ~Jennifer Lopez

"If I was sitting at a club...and you started singing, I would stop, and you would hold my attention until you finished." ~Keith Urban​

"Marvelous musicianship coupled with powerful feminine vocals soaring with such soul they would make the late Janis Joplin either weep with joy, or cry in envy.​" ~Cincy Vibe​

"Lamb is an indie artist to the core; she writes and records with many different projects beyond her solo work... Since Jess Lamb's time on American Idol, she has been busy getting her name and brand out in the public eye. She has played constantly at venues old and new, teamed up with other local musicians for projects and made many TV and radio appearances around Cincinnati... Lamb's Idol performances showed America what many Cincinnati music fans already knew - that Lamb's small frame houses a powerful and emotive voice...coupled with her intense and passionate work on the piano..."~Nick Grever "Citybeat"​

"Before the first episode airs on Fox, the Cincinnati singer has already made an impression as a contestant on the show. "American Idol" released a promotional video showing Lamb earning unanimous approval from judges (Harry) Connick, Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban, with the trio sending her to Hollywod for the next round of auditions. The snippet also shows Connick joining Lamb at a piano for an impromptu duet." ~Chris Varias "Cincinnati Enquirer"​

"She settled behind the keys and delivered a wonderfully original version of "Ain't No Sunshine" that had all three judges raving. Harry Connick Jr. seemed most impressed, calling Jess "the definition of creativity. You have a great look about you. You have presence. A very, very interesting talent." ~Mark Franklin "Idol Chatter"​
Veronica Grim & The Heavy Hearts
Veronica Grim & The Heavy Hearts
Combining the fables of a gypsy rogue with the galloping melodies of a gang of outlaw punks creates quite the musical combination. The influence of Outlaw Country and good old Rock and Roll can be heard throughout Veronica Grim's catalog of musical samplings. Formerly known as the lead singer of Switchblade Syndicate, Grim has broken away from the standard pyschobilly and cowpunk formula and created a whole new sound that crosses over the borders of several genres. For Grim and her exceptional bandmates, the truth and heart in a song plays louder than an amp, and the hell raised in live performance comes from a true love of being in front of those who can appreciate the power of real, pure music that doesn't require an auto tune.

In addition to headlining local shows in the Cincinnati area with Switchblade Syndicate and Veronica Grim and the Blue Ribbon Boys, Grim has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such national acts as Nekromantix, The Koffin Kats, The Arkhams, Whiskey Daredevils, Lydia Loveless and many more.

The band originated in Northern Kentucky and has moved to Long Beach, California for new adventures. Ready, willing and able to travel for gigs given enough notice. You can't put a price on fun...

The Grove
The Grove
The Grove is a Cincinnati based rock band that draws from an impressive range of influences to forge their hard-hitting, yet emotive, signature sound.

Built around the songs of lead vocalist/guitarist Adam Forsthoefel, the band has been described as, "The Black Crowes meets The Red Hot Chili Peppers"; careful listeners will also hear shades of everything from Stevie Ray Vaughan to the Killers.

The Grove’s origins were in the band SomeDaze, started by Forsthoefel and drummer Jeff Voegele, who attended high school together in Anderson, Ohio. SomeDaze quickly became one of the hot upcoming bands in Cincinnati, with performances at local clubs and festivals as well as several appearances on Cincinnati’s local news channel Fox 19. While the band’s reputation grew, Forsthoefel became known in his own rite as a local guitar phenomenon. He was regularly invited to open Cincinnati Reds games at the Great American Ball Park with his rendition of the national anthem, and made the rounds doing interviews for local radio stations and NPR.

After High School, Forsthoefel and Voegele moved to Athens, OH to attend Ohio University, where they started playing with local Athens players at venues such as Jackie O’s and The Union. Eventually they joined with members of the band Standing on Friday, and rehearsals began at their house on Grosvenor Street. These rehearsals at “The Grove” started becoming informal shows; it wasn’t long before the band that was born there became a mainstay of the Athens music scene, releasing their debut CD “Procuriosity” in December of 2012. In addition to playing in Athens, The Grove made frequent trips back to Cincinnati, playing local music festivals and at the famed Fountain Square.

When Forsthoefel and Voegele returned to Cincinnati after graduation, they decided to keep The Grove alive and added new members to replace those it had left in Athens-Adam’s brother Matthew Forsthoefel on keyboards, and bassist Matt Holt (Bolt) holding down the low end. They then quickly got to work re-introducing themselves to the Cincinnati scene, playing local buzz rooms like The Northside Tavern, Bogarts, Madison Theater, Stanley's Pub, and The Backstage Café. The band continues to write and record new music while winning new fans with their energetic live show and solid musicianship.

JIMS & his Mandareenians
JIMS & his Mandareenians
Since 1996, at the ripe age of 11, JIMS has been performing his unique blend of styles and movements that have held a profound influence through the years. Holding frontman/guitar duties with his early projects Code Red, GDS and Prick B. Mafia, once he reached his 20s he started up his longest project to date, Sweet Ray Laurel.

During the same period he was moonlighting as a drummer in Silver Bridge Disaster then as guitar and vocalist in Good Night Noises. Soon after he picked up the sticks again for Martin Luther & The Kings and then Smoke Signals… respectively.

In addition to two unnamed new secret projects, JIMS continues to play with Sweet Ray Laurel and Smoke Signals… while also performing solo.

Alone on the stage armed with just an acoustic guitar and loop station, his songs reflect a love for all styles of music ranging from punk, world, folk and everything in between. The years of influence and experimentation with various groups has helped mold a unique, concise and focused approach which, is evident in his compositions.

Always opting for the most visceral and vulnerable outlet, his solo output is every bit of raw, in-your-face, personal and delicate as you may expect as a document of such a storied sonic past.

JIMS is currently in the process of producing his debut solo album which, should see a release during Summer of 2015 on the label//collective he helps curate with his older brother, AndRecordings.
Moonbow
Moonbow
Moonbow started out as a writing project when singer Matt Bischoff approached David McElfresh of Hank 3/Lethal. The plan was to get together to write some songs for a possible recording project. Songs were written and then we approached former Afghan Whigs/Hermano drummer Steve Earle and Bassist Ryan McAllister of Valley of the Sun to form Moonbow and "The End of Time" was recorded.
Noah Smith
Noah Smith
Noah Smith grew up exploring the endless trails of woods and still waters of Brown County, Ohio. At a very young age Noah knew music would be his life’s path. Cereal bowls turned into drum sets, endless hours of garageband practices, and an insatiable ambition that lyrics and melodies could transcend it all would be early indicators of his life filled with music. As a songwriter and a performer Noah was influenced by a wide array of musical influence such as Paul Simon, Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, to bands like Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, and Death Cab for Cutie. Humbled by the impact these greats left on his life he often reflects on a modified version of his favorite Sir Isaac Newton quote, referring to himself as a boy who has “walked on the shoulders of giants.”

As his story continues Noah Smith has now had opportunity to share the stage with some of the industry’s most talented Artist such as Josh Turner, Cassade Pope, Steve Miller Band, David Alan Coe, Aaron Tippin, Reckless Kelly, Crystal Bowersox, Levi lowery and Andrew Combs. Noah has continued to grow and flourish as an artist. Lyrically Noah creates a simple home for his listeners to briefly escape to. Musically his energy and presence on stage impacts rooms large and small. ​Touring regionally with several bands over the years, Noah has found himself a home away from home in music city. Lately Noah finds himself writing on a weekly basis out of Nashville, TN. His music is a capsule of childhood faith, ambition, a little bit of love, God's good word, and the uphill climb to living an American boys dream.

“No matter what the sounds, I was putting on my homemade mix tapes, there was always a story involved. Lyrics mattered most to me, if Ohio is the melting pot of the country? My mixtapes were cassettes patchworked together with the same sonic landscape. I can only hope my songwriting does the same.”

Noah is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music with a degree in Electronic Media, Music Production and Audio & Video Design. It was during college while building life experiences, Noah’s songwriting began to flourish. Heart Ache, God's Blessing, and the devils conviction all found their way into his life and the lyrics he penned. After deciding to go out on his own and start his solo career, Noah received numerous accolades including Nominations for Best Live Act, Best Country Artist and Artist of the year 2016 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. Noah has several releases on various Media Outlets and is currently touring 10 states throughout the midwest.

With God given talent and natural musical inclination, Noah’s old soul, deep thinking, and love for lyrics led him to an aggressive path of writing songs, everyday simple prose and melody immediately found their way into storytelling at its best, songwriting.
Camp Sugar
Camp Sugar
Camp Sugar's sound is a collection of well-crafted poppy dream funk that reflects heart & soul from the lead singer's past and his rumination of the future. Noah Sugarman, founding member and songwriter, released his debut album, "Art Of Starting A Fire", on the Unison Music label in 2009. The talented, multi-instrumentalist, has toured the country coast-to-coast, with an array of bands. In 2007, Sugarman signed with Unison Music of Los Angeles.

In addition to Camp Sugar and his solo efforts, Sugarman has made significant contributions to alt-country/alt rock band, 500 Miles to Memphis, touring 250+ days a year from 2008 thru 2010, and playing bass and guitar on their last two albums,– "Sunshine In A Shot Glass" and "We've Built Up to Nothing".

Sugarman released a second album, "After the Blackout", in 2014, accompanied by a heavy touring schedule that took the band throughout North America and garnered rave reivews in Europe.

This year, a new EP promises more of the great sound that Camp Sugar so masterfully creates. Take a sneak peek at the new single, 'Heart', that will release the Summer of 2016.
Lisak & Rowe
Lisak & Rowe
Over the last three years, Lisak and Rowe have honed a spare, rich sound that exemplifies their love of acoustic music and harmony singing.
