Hymn For Her
Hymn For Her
Hymn for Her have been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past few years, injecting juiced-up backwoods country blues with a dose of desert rock psychedelia that has been described in such ways as, “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish.”, "Opening up Pandoras box and out jumps two hillbillies with electronics that blow your mind."

Hymn For Her smash through the highway guardrails and land in a carnival on a hot air balloon. Float away with them on their new release, ‘Pop-N-Downers’, recorded with Vance Powell. Out Oct 5, 2018.

Returning to the States after a 3 month UK/Euro tour the past two summers playing festivals (including Glastonbury, etc...) and many shows, they immediately hit the road for fall & winter to promote their 4th US release, “Drive Til U Die” recorded partially in their vintage Bambi Airstream and partially in studios with renowned engineers/producers. (Vance Powell, Mitch Easter & Jim Diamond)

For their 3rd release, “Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne’s Smokin Flames”, the twosome kicked it into high gear. They traveled to Ghetto Recorders/Detroit to work with Jim Diamond. They recorded live & mixed 12 original songs in just one week.
The duo certainly covers a lot of musical territory in Smokin Flames. Their wild-eyed mash-up of country, blues and punk led U.K. music critic Steve Bennett to call H4H’s sound “a riotous, rocking roadkill stew,” while others have referenced such diverse bands as Captain Beefheart, Primus, X, R.L. Burnside, JS Blues Explosion and the Ramones.

They recorded their 2nd album, “Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne and the Amairican Stream”, in their vintage 1961 Bambi Airstream trailer at locations stretching from Philadelphia to Malibu on a three-month tour.

Their first release, "Year of the Golden Pig" is a bare bones acoustic album recorded in a cabin on a cove on an island off the rocky coast of Maine. It captures the stark barren winter with haunting melodies and yearning lyrics.

Impressively, the two create their “ripsaw sounds” (Los Angeles Times’ Randy Lewis) with only a few instruments. Wayne (with the devilish voice), mainly playing the kick-drum, high-hat, acoustic guitar and harp, serves as the group’s rhythmic driving force. Lucy (of the fallen-angel voice) delivers a gritty squall on her “Lowebow” — a custom-made cigar-box guitar: “The Riff Monster.”

Catch this duo as they burn down the highway and tear up your town like a Wichita twister.
Armchair Boogie
Armchair Boogie
Rising from the forests and swampland of central Wisconsin, Armchair Boogie's high-energy take on the Jamgrass genre fuses intricate arrangements of acoustic guitar and banjo with the funky back beats of electric bass and drums.

Augie Dougherty (banjo, vocals) and Ben Majeska (guitar, vocals) started playing together in the fall of 2014 while attending the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and within a year their musical collaborations led to the formation of Armchair Boogie. Eager to expand their sound for a bigger stage, Augie and Ben recruited bassist Eli Frieders and drummer Dan Waterman to fill out the band's four-piece configuration.

Armchair Boogie solidified their current line-up in the spring of 2017 when Denzel Connor took over for a departing Dan Waterman on drums. In conjunction with the release of their debut, self-titled album, the band moved to Madison, WI, a jumping off point from where Armchair Boogie has become a regular on the upper Midwest festival circuit while also sowing roots in the Rocky Mountains.
Shovelin Stone
Shovelin Stone
With roots embedded in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and a sound unhinged in the capital of Texas, Shovelin Stone is a music almost as unique as the friendship it stems from. A shared passion for old-timey bluegrass is what brought Makenzie and Zak together, but it's the unknowing joy for the moment and the obsession with the complications that life brings that continues to push the duo forward. The road is winding but one thing is for sure that with these two at the wheel it's going to be a wild ride.
