Oak House
Oak House
An eclectic, moody mixture of rock, psychedelic, grunge, and garage rock from Athens GA

Formed in Athens, Ga. in January 2014, Oak House is a band playing a synthesis of melodic indie rock, psychedelic, experimental, grunge, and folk . The tender recordings of Oak House have the tendency to turn into loudly expressive renditions live. Oak House is comprised of Gresham Cash (guitar, vocals), Slade Adams (guitar, violin), Connor Sabula (bass), and Wes Gregory (drums).
Western Star
Western Star
Rock N Roll from Baltimore MD

Raised mostly in a holler on the border of West Virginia and Virginia. Formed this past summer while working on a cattle ranch in East Texas. This family band is a second generation alt-country four piece that brings garage-rock speed and power, southern rock harmonies and Modest Mousey punk pomp to their music. They played their first real gig this past October during ACL at the HIckoids' Corn Lover's Fiesta in Austin, sharing the stage with Old 97s.

Front Man for The Glenmont Popes

He’s been a professional musician since he was 24 but started with the trumpet in elementary school. Not that he was particularly gifted in the beginning. “When I was 13, I did Beach Boy covers in junior high,” he says. “I was horrible.” He really learned to play the guitar when he was a Marine Corps grunt after high school, he says, jamming every night with the other recruits while stationed at a Naval weapons base in Northern California.

His current band is the Glenmont Popes, named after his childhood neighborhood in Montgomery County and one of his favorite movies, The Pope of Greenwich Village (1984) with Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts.

“Popes are the people you go to,” explains Henry, the band’s front man. “It’s a slick thing.”

It’s hard to say what came first: the musician or the baker. He learned to bake cakes and bread as a teen from his grandmother and great-aunt, while visiting the family farm in Minnesota. But Henry also remembers being enamored early on with a 25-cent slice of apple pie at a local diner. “I’ve always been a pie guy since I was a little kid,” he sums up. He also found he could impress the girls with his homemade pies, recalling a Christmas past when he made a flaky offering (lard was his secret ingredient then) for a former young love, culling a recipe from a book called Pies and Tarts.
