Michigan Rattlers
Lifelong friends and deep-north natives, Michigan Rattlers play heavy-hearted folk-rock with an aching dose of Midwestern nice. Graham Young (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Reed (vocals/upright bass), Christian Wilder (vocals/piano) and Tony Audia (drums) began writing music and performing together in their Northern Michigan high school. They regularly played every bar, cafe, and stage in town, developing a musical chemistry informed by the likes of AC/DC, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Seger, and more. After a few years apart, Reed and Young settled down in Los Angeles, recorded a short demo, and began playing locally. The demo found its way in the hands of super-producer Johnny K, and they cut the bulk of their first EP at NRG studios in just one day. This self-titled Michigan Rattlers EP attracted glowing reviews from No Depression, Bluegrass Situation, Relix, Glide, Grammy.com and more. Rolling Stone named the band one of their “Ten New Country Artists You Need To Know.” In 2018, following a massive summer tour that included stops at Bonnaroo, Firefly and Electric Forest; the band released their highly anticipated debut full length album, Evergreen, and added pianist Christian Wilder and drummer Tony Audia to their lineup. The Michigan Rattlers are currently in the studio recording their second full length album in between tour dates.

Spud Buddy
Like many of their heroes before them, San Francisco, CA band Spud Buddy came into being as a backing band. They spent a year supporting country singer-songwriter Margo Cilker before splitting off a year ago to play their own brand of twangy Bay Area rock n’ roll. Drawing on a wide range of influences spanning from sixties rock n’ roll to early aughts pop-punk, guitarists Simon Hochberg and Alex Rosenblatt, bassist Phil Thorneycroft, and drummer Eli Popuch dial in the perfect balance of contrasts -- dreamy but gritty, worried but irreverent  -- with one goal in mind: be the tightest, least pretentious, most fun band they can.
