Rock quartet Taddy Porter were formed in Stillwater, OK, in October 2007 by singer/guitarist Andy Brewer, guitarist Joe Selby, bassist Kevin Jones, and drummer Doug Jones. After building up a following around the Oklahoma City area, they were signed to Primary Wave Records for the release of their self-titled debut album on June 29, 2010. Prior to the release, they earned airplay for the single "Shake Me" and placed their music on such television shows as Monday Night Football, ESPN SportsCenter, and Cougartown. Their songs "King Louie" and "Mean Bitch" were featured on the season premiere of the TV series Entourage two days before the album's release. The day after the Taddy Porter CD appeared, the group launched its first national tour, running through early September. They then joined Slash's tour as opening act.
Hailing from the Heartland, Oklahoma City band, Nicnōs, expel elements of rock, blues, funk and bluegrass - transcending genre - creating in the new vanguard of eclectic artistry. Innovators in their craft, Nicnōs celebrate milestones in independently releasing two highly successful albums, performing at main festivals, touring and sharing stages with artists such as STYX, REO Speedwagon, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown and The Revivalists, to name a few. Drawing inspiration from Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Punch Brothers and Dave Matthews Band, the 5-piece is best known for their explosive yet fluid live performances.
Lead singer, Josh Cox, is a vocal powerhouse, marrying a brooding blues tone with rock. Electric guitarist, Nick Sigman, is a master of tone, seamlessly laying down razor-sharp leads. The bluegrass rooted fiddler, Blake Parks, brings a delicate dynamic, adding a melodic rock-fiddle layer that uniquely contributes to their sound. High energy bassist, Jared Gaiser, flawlessly anchors in the foundation, inventively bringing the funk! On the drums, Jerred Bauer, cleverly blends a rock core while infusing hip-hop grooves and fills.
More than anything, Nicnos is a band that needs to be seen live to feel the energy and witness the way they all collaborate to create their Nicnōs sound.
Tulsa-grown rock band Skytown, best described as playing acoustic guitar driven, Alternative Americana rock, is more that just feel-good party music. With clean tones, soothing leads, and memorable hooks, their music keeps the tempo up and the crowds wild. The six-piece band has consistently released top-ranked music since their inception in 2012, and attracts hundreds of fans to their shows. Deriving influences from acclaimed powerhouses, including Pantera, Black Sabbath, Counting Crows, and Dropkick Murphys, Skytown has concocted their own unique “sonic mash-up” of folk, rock, and balladry.
With a vocal palate akin to rust, Dale Crain serves as the band’s storyteller, welcoming listeners into the eerily familiar world of lore. Acoustic guitar duo Tim Burress and Jason Ford’s powerful, yet melodic foundation complements the steady bass rhythms, courtesy of Dave Williams. John Edens’ electric guitar riffs are crisp, complex, and very funky. Drummer Eliot Cooper keeps it tight, commanding the stage even from the back.
At the heart of it all, Skytown is a band of performers who truly know how to play their instruments. Each song has a soul of its own, and their ability to consistently make waves as rockers in the industry has established Skytown as one of the most unique sounding bands today.
"Starting off as a two piece, Good Villains was a concept created by drummer, Steven Davison and Vocalist, Caleigh Trotter. As their music began to progress, Pianist, Felicia Arnhols joined the group followed by the Guitarist Ted Scott and bass player, Todd Shaver. The story-teller theme is coupled by expert musicianship and an eerie sense of childishness. A heavy contender in the "doom-pop" genre.
Good Villains are force reminiscent of the 90's yet so full of the unknown and a ton of imagination."
