New And Now

Big Damn Band

Big Damn Band
bigdamnband.com
Roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills comes Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band playing a brand of Americana and Blues that stands alone – Delta blues and hillbilly fervor combine with musical acuity sharp as razor wire-proving this trio is a force to be reckoned with. On the road performing some 250 dates a year, this band creates their own community and welcomes the crowd into it and their new album, Between The Ditches, is a chronicle of this lifestyle. This band is fun sure, a lot of fun, but they are for real. From virtuoso musicianship to great songwriting, Between The Ditches has got it all.

Miss Tess

Miss Tess

Miss Tess, along with backing outfit, The Talkbacks, blends a knack for melodic and rhythmic improvisation and interplay with elements of honky-tonk, western swing, and golden-era pop standards, arriving at a style simultaneously refreshing and hauntingly familiar. The songs on Sweet Talk are an evocative study striking an elusive balance between stylishly classic and insightfully contemporary. At turns defiant, cheeky, wounded, and raucous, the songs bridge the gap between Miss Tess—the fearless, spotlit starlet onstage—and Tess, the quietly thoughtful and compassionate personality behind the scenes.
