Red Wanting Blue
Red Wanting Blue
Led by singer-songwriter Scott Terry, Red Wanting Blue is proudly based in Columbus, Ohio, but could be America’s local band. For years, the group has gone about logging thousands of miles on the road throughout the nation’s heartland, making fans the hard way - one at a time.

With the aid of positive word of mouth and an unwavering perseverance, Red Wanting Blue has established a devoted following in and around the Midwest where the band regularly fills clubs reserved for bigger names.

As Red Wanting Blue’s touring schedule has grown to non-stop, and with an appearance on David Letterman to boot, the band is now seeing its following growing throughout the rest of the country, as well.

Terry’s passionate and poetic songs, anchored by his powerful baritone, are the kinds of tunes that could only have been written by a man who has lived this kind of life on the road.

Traveling with Terry are band mates Mark McCullough (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Greg Rahm (Keys, Guitars, Organ, Vocals), Eric Hall, Jr. (Guitars, Lap Steel, Mandolin, Banjo, Vocals) and Dean Anshutz (Drums, Percussion, Glockenspiel), who together build the unshakable rock powerhouse that supports Terry’s big voice.

Red Wanting Blue’s latest studio recording From The Vanishing Point is the band’s coming-of-age album and is its first to be recorded for a label after several self-released records. The record debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, another testament to the band’s loyal fans.

From The Vanishing Point, out now from Fanatic Records (EMI/Caroline), sheds some of Red Wanting Blue’s small-town sensibilities as it evolves into the world-class rock n’ roll outfit that audiences have believed in for years and marks an official move to the national stage for a band that will always remember where it’s from.
Stationary Set
Stationary Set
The Stationary Set had a very simple idea when it finally solidified: to write songs of a greater nature that it found appealing and attainable without sacrificing any content, without dumbing anything down or being afraid to be loud or blatant. It sought to make the "pop" in "pop music" not such a dirty word.

Grouping together an EP of songs, the band laid down the doormat for its home in the indie/pop realm in 2008. Several tours and elbow to elbow shows in NYC and Brooklyn later, The Stat. Set came up for air with a treasure chest of new thought and new songs, a sampling of which were recorded in studios, practice rooms and ghost houses in August 2009. Virally melodic and epic in nature, The Stationary Set have injected elements into the traditional 4-minute pop song that today's indie-rock fandom haven't heard in a long time.
Great Elk
Great Elk
“The Brooklyn rockers Great Elk display the control and restraint of a band with deep chemistry, as they sway gracefully between gentle ballads and mid-tempo indie-rock tunes.” – The New Yorker

"Lead single "I'm going to bend" is a slow-simmering pot of Kosmic American music that should find favor with fans of Band of Horses or the erstwhile Grandaddy." - My Old Kentucky Blog

"Great Elk's Autogeogaphy is a remarkably consistent and conceptually coherent record." - Adequacy.net
