“Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys are a fresh new voice in modern bluegrass, with driving instrumentals and a straight-from-the-still quality to Lindsay’s voice…If you’re a fan of broad-based bluegrass with a strong infusion of creativity and intelligence, Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys is a band you definitely need to check out.” Bluegrass Unlimited

Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys have a fresh approach to American roots genres, which they weave in and out seamlessly from song to song with the throwback sound of bluegrass instruments and the striking delivery of blues vocals. They’re now touring in support of a new short release, the Here Between EP, which serves as a snapshot of their unique and ever evolving sound. With roots in the Great Lakes State of Michigan, Lindsay and the band have been traversing the country with instruments in tow since the release of their 2012 record, Release Your Shrouds. The album showcased the band’s musical ingenuity, Lindsay’s vocal prowess and their collective aptitude for cultivating prolific original material. In short, Lindsay Lou Rilko, Joshua Rilko, Mark Lavengood and PJ George are a heavy pickin’, powerful harmony singin’, tight knit family fashion conglomeration of new-fangled roots music.    www.lindsayloumusic.com

 004-eliot-bronson-fieldYou heard him here with The Parlor Sessions: Eliot Bronson was dubbed a “folk-singer wunderkind” by The Baltimore Sun. He took first place in MerleFest’s Chris Austin Songwriting Contest and won the coveted songwriters shootout at Eddie Owen Presents, among others. His latest critically acclaimed solo album, Milwaukee, features members of Sugarland and the BoDeans. 

“Eliot Bronson is the type of songwriter who could squeeze out something meaningful about taking out the trash. He writes heartfelt songs with dark humor and backs them with his resonant voice and swampy instruments. Back in his hometown of Baltimore, he was dubbed a folk-singing wunderkind. He then moved to Atlanta and started the Brilliant Inventions with Josh Lamkin. The duo quickly won the Best New Local Music Act in the 2008 Creative Loafing Readers Poll. As well as The Eddie’s Attic Shoot Out, and Most Wanted Emerging Artists at The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival] The band broke up in 2010. Lamkin became a full-time photographer while Bronson released his first solo record, Blackbirds, to wide critical acclaim. Bronson just released his second CD, Milwaukee, with a backing band, Yonder Orphans. The band includes Sugarlands original guitarist, Bret Hartley, and BoDeans drummer Kevin Leahy. The album pays tribute to Rodney Lanier, who, until his death in 2011, was one of the most beloved musicians in Charlotte, NC, fronting bands such as Jolene and Sea of Cortez.”‘
