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.

"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"​
