The Stone Foxes

The Stone Foxes are San Francisco’s rock band. They bear the torch of their predecessors with the knowledge that rock ‘n roll can move a new generation. They’ve played in front of thousands at festivals like Outside Lands and Voodoo Fest, they’ve headlined the legendary Fillmore Theater in their hometown and they have supported acts like The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant and ZZ Top. Now, with the release of their fourth album, Twelve Spells, they have solidified a place in their City’s rich rock ‘n roll history.

“The Stone Foxes have an energetic style that’s rooted in swampy, foot-stomping rock…ambitious arrangements with diverse moods ranging from acoustic twang to thunderous electric-guitar riffs.”

– NPR/WXPN “WORLD CAFE”

Poor Man’s Whiskey

Poor Man’s Whiskey is an American band originating in the San Francisco Bay Area rooted around the songwriting talents of Josh Brough and Jason Beard (whom met in 1993 at the University of California, Santa Barbara). Poor Man’s Whiskey’s live show and sound is blend of high octaneold time/bluegrass music (often done on traditional acoustic instruments of banjo, guitar, and mandolin) and a more psychedelic blues/jam rockstyle that call upon their earlier influences such as Pink Floyd, The Allman Brothers Band, and the Grateful Dead. Poor Man’s Whiskey seamlessly transitions between acoustic and electric styles with a carefully crafted commitment that revolves around well written songs and stories…while maintaining an exciting element of improvisation and the openness to let a song expand.

Besides their eight original albums and high energy shows, Poor Man’s Whiskey is also known for their special “interpretation sets”. They gained international attention by their bluegrass rendition of “Dark Side of the Moonshine” (a bluegrass take on the classic Pink Floyd album), as well as successful interpretive sets of Paul Simon’s “Graceland”, The Allman Brothers Band, The Band, The Eagles, Old and In the Way, and Kate Wolf. These sets are played in conjunction with an original set or a special festival late night party.

The Steel Wheels

Hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, The Steel Wheels are familiar with the traditions of folk music and how a string band is supposed to sound. In fact, they’ve been drawing on those steadfast traditions for more than a decade. Yet, their name also evokes a sense of forward motion, which is clearly reflected in their latest album, Wild As We Came Here.

The Steel Wheels recorded their album in rural Maine, where producer Sam Kassirer (Lake Street Dive, Josh Ritter) owns a recording studio inside a renovated farmhouse from the 18th century. All four band members – Trent Wagler (guitar, banjo), Eric Brubaker (fiddle), Brian Dickel (upright bass) and Jay Lapp (mandolin) – hunkered down for a week and a half to create Wild As We Came Here.

The band’s name is a tip of the hat to steam-powered trains, industrial progress and the buggies of their Mennonite lineage. Their musical style weaves through Americana and bluegrass, folk and old-time music, and the acoustic poetry of the finest singer-songwriters. By incorporating percussion and keyboards into their recording sessions for the first time, Wild As We Came Here adds new textures to their catalog, as themes of discovery and perseverance run throughout the collection.
