The Naked Sun
The Naked Sun
The Naked Sun may or may not have coined the phrase, but “honest rock” has unquestionably been their ethos since their start back in 2011—and few bands embody its spirit like they do. With songs that echo the rawness and sincerity of the cities around which its members grew up—Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia—the band blends the basics of roots rock and folk with layers of bolstering piano and organ, intricate pedal steel leads, and melodic choruses backed by satisfying vocal harmonies. Rooted in the songwriting of frontman Andrew Wesley Harris, The Naked Sun strive equally toward Petty’s pop genius, Springsteen’s storytelling, Dylan’s social consciousness, and the energy of My Morning Jacket.
Holy Human
Holy Human is a five-piece psychedelic rock band from Central Florida that formed in 2015. They have released two albums, toured the southwest, and are currently working on two more albums to be released in 2018. Orlando Weekly describes them as a “Daytona freak-psych cult that channels Brian Jonestown Massacre and Dinosaur Jr. to hazy effect." The Central Florida Post describes their live show as exciting, saying, “Between their holy harmonies, a monster on bass, and matching Gibson guitars, it’s a show to be seen.” Recently, Holy Human won a contest by local radio station and NPR affiliate 90.7 WMFE, and were named Central Florida's favorite Tiny Desk submission for their song "Ballad of the Swamp King".
Hoochi Coochi
Hoochi Coochi is a hand clapping soul stirring indie blues band from Dover, De. Starting in the warm fall of 2015, members Fatz Hawkins and Danielle Johnson have been hitting the music scene hard and heavy together. Both coming from well-established musical projects and closing in on a decade of musical experience, the two have joined forces to create something that's sure to make you dance. Mixing genres like blues, southern rock, rhythm and blues and adding a touch of indie they have been able to engage a wide demographic both young and old. Hoochi Coochi picked up multi-instrumentalist Spencer Greene in May 2016 to play keyboard and longtime drummer Chelsea Grant in July of 2016 on drums to round out their sound and add movement and flow to their live performance. Always a crowd favorite Hoochi Coochi brings the people together. They have entertained a wide array of venues from The Milton Theater to the Grand Opera House in Wilmington and winning The Annual Delmarva Folk Hero Competition 2016 and becoming finalist in Musikarmaggedon X they’re only getting better. They have recently finished writing for their debut EP and anticipate releasing their first EP by late 2016.
