Valley Queen
Valley Queen
Valley Queen front woman Natalie Carol leads a band reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and My Morning Jacket with vocals evocative of Florence Welch. Neil Wogensen (Bass & Vocals), Shawn Morones (Lead Guitar & Vocals) and Gerry Doot (drums), enrich the songs with energy, excitement and emotion.
In 2016, the band released the singles “In My Place” and “High Expectations” on Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records to wide acclaim, and have played lauded shows at an array of venues, opening for Reggie Watts, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, LP, Laura Marling, Springtime Carnivore and The Wild Reeds, as well as headlining the Echo Park Rising Festival, Pappy & Harriet's and The Echoplex. They’ve been featured in the lineups at Lightning in a Bottle, River Roots Live, NPR's Tiny Desk Contest Tour and Willie Nelson's Luck Reunion.
Pranav Trewn from Stereogum praised that Valley Queen has “never sounded better than they do on “In My Place,” and Bob Boilen from NPR’s All Songs Considered believes that “Valley Queen comes from the Neil Young school of great music."
February 2017 marks the debut of Valley Queen's premiere EP, featuring their newest songs produced by Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, Nikki Lane, Fool's Gold, FIDLAR). The songs show the band's sonic evolution since their first release, and will set the stage for an exciting year to come.
Sarah Shook & The Disarmers
Sarah Shook & The Disarmers
Sarah Shook & The Disarmers are a country band with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies. Shook's original songs take on the usual country spin on shitty relationships, bad decisions, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons. Songs with self-explanatory self-deprecation, "Fuck Up", tangled in with a portrayal of a doomed relationship dripping with sarcasm,"The Nail", are bastioned by the subtleties of a bar patron considering taking a chance on a stranger in title track, "Sidelong".

When Shook's first band, Sarah Shook & the Devil, broke up after a solid three year plus run, Shook and her guitarist, Eric Peterson, continued to meet, practice, and plan. In late 2013 they put together brief stint called The Dirty Hands which ended after a handful of shows. The project they were looking for soon arrived with the addition of former Two Dollar Pistols frontman, John Howie Jr., (now frontman for John Howie Jr. & the Rosewood Bluff) as drummer. Sarah Shook & the Disarmers was born.

Shook and chief engineer of Manifold Recording Studios, Ian Schreier, had worked together some years before when he supervised intern Mario Bianchi recording the Devil's seven song EP simply titled, Seven. Shook and Schreier had been discussing creating a full length album together for an age and, finally, during the first weekend of April, 2015, it happened. After nearly a decade of playing solo or fronting a band, Shook is releasing her first full-length album, Sidelong, on October 16, 2015.
The War & Treaty
The War & Treaty
Described as one of the top 4 bands to watch by CBS Radio, The War and Treaty is blazing an innonvative trail with their electic blend of Americana, Folk, Soul and Blues. Their first single "Hi Ho" released in June 2016 entered into Triple A Radio top 200 charts, came in at number 20 out of the Top 89 songs of 2016 at WTMD 89.7 (Baltimore, MD) and made it into the Top 91 songs of 2016 at WSGE 91.7 and this is just the beginning for this duo.

In July 2017, this husband and wife duo will share the stage with Grammy Award Winning producer and Blue Note Records President, Don Was, as one of his hand-picked performers for one of Detroit's biggest music festivals Don Was All Star Revue: Music Rebellion and will continue touring the US.

On July 21, 2016, they will release their first self-produced EP called "Down To The River", of which the single, “Down To The River ,” has already been added to many Americana and NPR radio stations around the country.

CBS radio called it first – this is the band to watch.

“If your heart is thirsty for some warm comfort in a new flangled flask...lay your soul down here. This offering from The War and Treaty is pure joy”
— Lisa Fischer (Grammy Award Winner, Oscar Winner-40 Feet from Stardom)
