Danielle Nicole (formerly of Trampled Under Foot)
A 2014 Blues Music Award winner, there’s not a time in her life that singer/bassist/songwriter Danielle Nicole (born Danielle Nicole Schnebelen) doesn’t remember loving to perform. As a child, she would sing for her family at holidays and took tap, jazz and ballet lessons for many years competing in numerous events. Danielle also took band in middle school, playing the tenor saxophone and enjoying it quite a bit. Unfortunately, she was forced to quit when the family moved to Kansas City and the new school did not offer band.

Danielle comes from generations of singers. Her grandmother, Evelyn Skinner, was a big band singer. Danielle’s mother, Lisa Swedlund, taught her everything she knew while growing up and listening to all different kinds of music from the Everly Brothers to the B-52s.

Ruby Force
Ruby Force
Ruby Force, the musical brainchild of Erin McLaughlin, captures her personal journey of self-discovery...marked by a maturity and ease in tone, lyrics that elicit confidence in the midst of questions, and a flirty playfulness that will melt anyone's heart. All this - with an invitation to listen and engage in her twisted tales of life and love, lost and gained.

Evolutionary War, her debut effort, is a full length album, set to be released in 2015. It transports the listener through McLaughlin’s own experiences – from her upbringing in the yellow-hued fields of the Southwest, through the dank, fluoresced streets of urban metropolises, and across a myriad of international seas. Enlisting the collaboration of musical luminaries such as Elijah Thomson (Everest, Delta Spirit, Father John Misty), Richard Swift (The Black Keys, The Shins, Foxygen), Frank Lenz (Pedro The Lion) and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), McLaughlin keeps good company on the sojourn as these creative partners inject a wealth of heart, brains and guts into her already soul-wrenching compositions.

‘After the first pass through Evolutionary War, it is clear that we are witnessing only the emergence of an exciting new artist, as the songs weave through a host of familiar musical genres creating an exciting hybrid of past, present and future. If this independently produced release is any indication, the future is glittered with Ruby Force.’ - Eli Thomson
