Weighing in at an accumulative 846 pounds, The Tejon Street Corner Thieves hail from the Colorado Rockies. The outlaw blues and trash-grass pioneers forged their original brand of whiskey roots from the ground up. Honing their craft on the streets, they swiftly gained recognition from the music community with the 2015 Gazette “Best of the Springs” award. Now as a nationally touring act, the band has become notorious for their shenanigans and over the top live performance. TSCT’s consistent show schedule and heart filled showmanship has captured the hearts of show goers everywhere. Unlike that last sentence, their performances are always a breathe of fresh air and never redundant. All jokes aside, the only things The Tejon Street Corner Thieves are going to steal are the hearts and minds of music lovers everywhere.
Allegedly founded at a bible camp, and born in the back valleys of Western Wisconsin, Them Coulee Boys craft a brand of Americana that blends punk, bluegrass, and rock & roll. Guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, and a lone kick drum provide the pulse that drives underneath the conversational yet thoughtful lyrics. Them Coulee Boys seek to start a conversation with their performance, knowing just how diverse that interaction can be. From love letters and farewell fights, to fists raised in protest with a hand held in harmony, the songs are reflections on the current state of the world, and in turn, ourselves. The lyrics and singing of Soren Staff are complemented by the reckless banjo stylings of Beau Janke, the deft mandolin work of Jens Staff, and the thump of bass/kick drummer Neil Krause, Them Coulee Boys are sure to make it “impossible not to bob your head, shake your legs, or even strum your fingers along with the beat” (The Spectator). After the release of their debut “I Never Lied About Being In Love” in 2014, Them Coulee Boys toured tirelessly until it came time to record their first professional studio effort in the winter months of 2016. After 7 days at Pine Hollow Audio outside of Eau Claire, WI the new record “Dancing in the Dim Light” was born. With new songs came new sounds, as evidenced by the use of electric banjo, drums, and piano. Engineer Evan Middlesworth also contributed pedal steel and baritone guitar, while Eve Wilczewski (Seasaw) added violin. It’s a grander sound, while still keeping the rawness of a live setting Them Coulee Boys are known for. Lyrically, “Dancing in the Dim Light” deals with the duality of life, in which we often remember the lows in our highs, but also see the light in the dark. Being weak or vulnerable isn’t what defines you. It’s about how you dance when the lights aren’t shining like they need to. “Dancing in the Dim Light” is set to be released June 28, 2016 with a tour to follow. Since the release of "Dancing in the Dim Light", fans and critics alike have praised the giant step forward into Them Coulee Boys own sound. Reviewed by many U.S. publications, DITDL was also loved by Scene Magazine in Canada, and had press from the U.K. as well. It was named "Best Local Album 2016" by Volume One Magazine, and has been played on radio stations all across the country, most notably on NPR's "Simply Folk" program.
A Californian, Americana /Pop/Rock quartet, formed in 1996 in Sacramento, CA. Their self released album "Unknown Territory" in 1997 garnered generous amounts of press, and touring while also solidifying their first indie deal with Cargo Records. In 1998 Cargo released "Halo In My Backpack" and the band continued touring heavily in support across all of the West and Southwest United States. Over the course of the next year the record label collapsed and after a missed opportunity to have Ryan Adams produce their third release, the band found themselves in the studio with producer Craig Schumacher of Wavelab Studios recording songs for a new album that would never be released. After a myriad of line-up changes and continued touring, the band in it's new incarnation was back in the studio recording "Amador Frequency". Recorded in 2003, with more touring and more personnel changes the band went on hiatus. Playing very seldom until the newly formed Test Pattern Records showed an interest in releasing the shelved recording. In the summer of 2011 the band signed with Test Pattern and "Amador Frequency" was released. Bringing the music and the band out of hibernation and back to the stage. The time away allowed the band the space to evolve and come back with a new vibrant perspective that prompted them to get back to the studio once again to record their fourth album to date entitled "Chambers". Over the course of two sessions in the past year the band recorded at Sylvia Massy's, Radio Star Studios in Northern California. With this album soon to be released the band will be back touring in support.
