The Native Howl
The Native Howl
Alex Holycross (Guitar, Bouzouki, Vocals) had been briefly producing Jake Sawicki's (Guitar, Banjo, Harmonica) solo project at C.A.D. Studios until they decided to join forces as The Native Howl in 2013. "The Revolution's Dead" was recorded and released, and the duo started performing live and incubating the music that would soon form their 2015 release "Inukshuk".

Soon after, long-time friend and C.A.D. Studios ally David Robinson joined on bass guitar, followed by Clean as Dirt drummer Josh Lemieux. The quartet performed in cities all over the Midwest.

In September 2015, upon David Robinson's friendly departure from the group, Mark Chandler (formerly a metal and classical guitarist) was asked to step in on bass guitar. Chandler had studied classical music at Oakland University with Holycross, and had been playing shows in his band Ancient Chaos with Clean as Dirt (Holycross and Lemieux).

In March of 2016, "Thrash Grass" was released, redefining the band's live image and musical intensity. The Howl continued to hone their performance abilities and compositional aptitude.

In October of 2017, the band embarked on their first U.S. tour. April of 2018 will see the release of the band's 3rd full length album, followed by a month-long West Coast tour.
Dead Country Gentlemen
Dead Country Gentlemen
Formed in the fall of 2013, Dead Country Gentlemen are fronted by Cameron Ray, a California-born songwriter raised amid the bright lights and dark motives of Las Vegas. The band's music combines thundering distorted guitars, stomping rhythms and catchy melodies with emotionally charged lyrics about love, loss and the liquor that fuels both. It has roots in the great country-rock songwriters of the past with contemporary sounds and themes.

Dead Country Gentlemen are a San Francisco-based quartet comprised of guitar, bass, drums, and keys. Having played throughout San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Ojai, San Luis Obispo and Reno, Nevada, the Dead Country Gentlemen put on a loud, high-energy live show that often results in breaking a sweat, breaking a string, and on some occasions, breaking skin.
