The Young Vines
The Young Vines are an alternative rock band from Tulsa that began in May of 2015. With influences like Fleetwood Mac, Band of Horses, and Pixies, the band merges sounds of the american south with 70s/80s rock in a fashion that leaves you with feelings of melancholy, angst, and hope.

With their debut full-length album in the works, appearances at SXSW and Deep Ellum Fest to a growing fan base in Texas, and a summer of travel ahead of them, The Young Vines are gearing up for an exciting year.

NeoRomantics
NeoRomantics
Since their inception in 2014, the six-piece rock outfit, NeoRomantics, rooted in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has established itself as a force in midwest indie music. NeoRomantics brings an eclectic mixture of different styles that meld together forming a cohesive sound. Sexy indie-rock guitar licks and nostalgic R&B vocals are contrasted with high energy undertones of pop groove. NeoRomantics joins audiences on an emotional journey during their sets, with fiery love anthems and songs that make it awkward not to dance.
All For More
All For More
Formed in 2014 without any talk of what style of music to write, a bunch of skinny dudes assembled in a room together and started creating loud rhythmic sounds. The influences of every dude came together and resulted in a veritable cacophony of original music. Some of those dudes came and went... and much like removing atoms from silver, resulted in a bar of gold.
R. Milkwood Thomas
R. Milkwood Thomas
R. Milkwood Thomas, or Milkwood Thomas for short has been freewheeling his way as a session harmonica player in Nashville, Memphis, New York, and everywhere in between. Now, rambling into Tulsa from back east with a guitar on his back, Milkwood can be seen playing covers of old folk standards and a few original songs. He counts obscure folksinger Elston Gunn and bluesman Blind Boy Grunt as influences, however he worships Bob Dylan and has been trying to work out a way to meet him. It is not difficult to hear where Thomas gets his familiar sounding harmonica-drenched protest song sound from.
Earth Falls Before Me
Earth Falls Before Me
Earth Falls Before Me is a 5 member progressive metal band from Oklahoma City. The band is currently in the studio. Earth Falls Before Me is Cameron Wilkerson (drums), Dalton Lott (vocals), Dakota Solis (bass), Dylan McBride (guitar/vocals), and Skyler Wilkerson (guitar).
Skytown
Skytown
Skiatook grown rock band Skytown, best described as acoustic guitar driven, Alternative Americana rock, is more than 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. The acoustic guitar duo of Tim Burress and a man they call “Ahj” create a powerful, yet melodic foundation that complements the steady bass rhythms, courtesy of Dave Williams. John Edens’ electric guitar riffs are crisp, complex, and very funky while 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.
SteelyFace
