Sarah Gayle Meech
Sarah Gayle Meech
Nashville country singer Sarah Gayle Meech has just released her debut album “One Good Thing.” Produced by Andy Gibson (Hank 3) and Meech herself, the album features 12 original tracks, and some of Nashville’s finest players. Meech and her band “The Meech Boys” hold weekly residencies at Nashville’s most beloved honky tonks, Robert’s Western World and Layla’s Bluegrass Inn.

Originally hailing from the small logging town Longview Washington, Sarah Gayle was raised under the influence of classic country, evergreens, and the mighty Columbia River. Meech later moved to Los Angeles to pursue her musical aspirations. It was there she would come in to her own as a singer and songwriter. Penning tales of heartache, big city blues, and wild L.A. nights made Sarah Gayle Meech a reputable part of the California country music scene. Meech’s songwriting has a down home, tell it like it is approach. There is an accessible honesty to her songs listeners can relate to.

In 2010, Sarah Gayle relocated to Nashville Tennessee where she currently resides. Check Meech’s tour dates to see when she is coming to your town, and come see why Sarah Gayle Meech has been called “an alt-country powerhouse” and “a country music force to be reckoned with!”

In 2003, three long time vets of the Chicago Rockabilly scene got together to bust out Rockabilly as it occurs to them. Hillbilly Idle takes traditional Rockabilly, Country, Surf, and a little bit of Punk Rock - throw it all in to the blender with whole lot of Rum and they turn it on high! This ain't your Grandad's Rockabilly.

Over the years, musical credits include such bands as: Rebel Rousers, Sea Sick Crocodiles, Venus Flycats, The Bottletones, HiFi, and many many more...

You can catch Hillbilly Idles explosive sounds at Kustom Car events all over Chicago. Highlight Kustom car events have included: Hunert Car Pileup, Barnyard Boogie, World of Wheels, Voodoo Larry's Open house #2 & #3, #4 Route 66 Car Show, and for 4 years running, the fine people of The Orbit Room have had Hillbilly Idle at their Anniversary bash.

In the world of a working band there is no greater constant than the road. Few know this better than Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Company, the Kansas City trio who put their original spin on that classic country sound. With the upcoming release of their sophmore album, 'When the Spirits Move Me,' Lee and company touch on many of the elements so familiar to their life on the road. From wild nights in far away towns, to barroom brawls and goodbye kisses, the band expertly explain their travelling life. All with the swingin' shuffles and country flair of your favorite 45's. But then again, winding highways and endless mile markers are something they know well. Upon completion of their first record, 'Ghostly Fires,' the band commenced a wide-spread and heavy touring schedule, playing over 100 shows and half of the US in their first year alone. Since the release of 'Ghostly Fires' the band has also spent a good deal of time refining their already unique sound. While their first album touches on the more subtle tones of Americana, 'When the Spirits Move Me' focuses on the band's affinity for classic country. Twelve tracks of heartbreaking honky tonk that sound right at home in the swingin beer joints and rural roadhouses the band often plays. Leading the way is Adam Lee whose basement baritone perfectly presents the highs and lows of life on the road. Joining Lee are Johnny Kay (electric guitar, mandolin) and Boomerang Dave Bruchmann (upright bass), and when this train starts a-chuggin, folks had better hold on. It's something that comes naturally to the band, just like the country music they play. While you may have heard country music, you've never heard (or seen) it like this. Their live show is a rowdy and rollicking good time full of all original honky tonk music -- songs to drink to, cry to, and most of all dance to. So bring a date, grab a drink, and don't forget your dancin' shoes. Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Company are headed down the highway, and there's no end in sight.

Here's the short story. Matt has been a figure in the East Tennessee music scene for the past ten years. Located in Knoxville, TN, he has performed in several bands as well as working as a solo artist. Matt has shared the stage with the likes of CAKE, Drivin' n' Cryin', Will Hoge, Kevn Kinney, Roger Clyne (of The Refreshments), Garrison Starr, Tim Lee, Mic Harrison (of the V-Roys and Superdrag), Doug Gillard (of Guided By Voices) , Two Cow Garage, Col. Bruce Hampton & the Code Talkers, Zac Brown, Graham Colton, Brian Vander Ark (of The Verve Pipe), The Features and a seemingly never-ending list of talented independent artists who aren't getting the widespread respect they deserve from points around the globe. Matt spent his earliest years with a band called Magpie Suite, which received a bit of notoriety around the southeast and produced three albums. Until recently, he worked devotedly with his latest band Plan A, where he wrote songs, sang, played guitars, played cards, drank beers, and often drove from show to show along the east coast in a big, brown van named Daisy. Plan A released and supported two full length albums between 2004 and 2009. Through solo performances and band appearances, Matt has averaged over 200 shows a year for the past few years, an average that would be higher if it weren't for a very unfortunate thumb-wrestling accident in the spring of '06. At home, Matt also performs in a duo called Adapted Wood with long time friend Tod Sheley every Monday night, and in several other projects featuring a number of talented musicians. He can also be found sitting in from time to time at random shows in the Knoxville area.
