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."

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"
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...
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.
Ric Hickey, Kip Roe and Mike Tittle
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.
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.
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.
