John Moreland – Cherokee

JohnMorelandJohn Moreland played in his first show when he was 13 or 14 years old. In the early 2000s during high school, Moreland played in local punk and hardcore bands, including local metalcore Oklahoma band, Thirty Called Arson. Moreland put together the Black Gold Band in 2005, and released Endless Oklahoma Sky in 2008.

In 2009, he recorded the follow-up Things I Can’t Control with producer and musician Stephen Egerton (Descendents, All). Largely self-performed (Moreland plays 99% of the instruments) and self-produced, Moreland produces music that is influenced by his Oklahoma roots, music that is “gloriously and joyfully heartbreaking.”In 2015, Moreland released High on Tulsa Heat, his third full-length solo record release. The album was recorded quickly and informally over the course of a few days in July 2014. Moreland used his parents’ home in Bixby OK, as a studio while they were out of town on vacation. He is characterized as a “songwriter’s songwriter”. Three of Moreland’s songs, “Heaven,” “Gospel,” and “Your Spell”, have been featured on the TV show, Sons of Anarchy.

Veruca Salt – The Gospel According To Saint Me

verucasaltVeruca Salt was founded in Chicago IL, in 1993 by vocalist-guitarists Nina Gordon and Louise Post, drummer Jim Shapiro and bassist Steve Lack.

In 1998, Gordon left the band to pursue a solo career (her first album Tonight and the Rest of My Life, was released in 2000). The undisclosed dispute between Gordon and Post has been described as “one of the greatest rock soap operas since Fleetwood Mac or Hüsker Dü.”

In March 2013, the band announced the reunion of its original line-up with a message on the band’s official Facebook page which read, “for now let’s just say this: hatchets buried, axes exhumed.” In May 2015 the band announced the release of their fifth full-length LP, Ghost Notes. The album, scheduled for release on July 10, is the first to feature the band’s original lineup since 1997’s Eight Arms to Hold You.

The band’s current tour brings them to Webster Hall in New York City on July 31.

The London Souls – Steady


The London Souls’ unique reinterpretation of classic hard-hitting rock and roll formulae recalls elements of the past with an ever-present boundless energy, fit to cement their place in the future.

Tash and Chris have been nothing short of a best-kept-secret among New York City concertgoers since the band’s formation in 2008, building a fervent and dynamic fan base leveraged by their ever-substantiated reputation for consistently well-rehearsed and impassioned, explosive live performances. The band’s celebrated sound and spirit draws significant influence from the driving force of British rock pioneers Cream and Led Zeppelin, to billowing and bouncing funk and soul, to the layered harmonies and memorable hooks of The Beatles and The Hollies, to the contemporary psychedelia of My Morning Jacket among many more.

Hippo Campus – Little Grace

hippocampusHardly out of high school, four boys living just outside the Twin Cities create catchy indie pop rock as though they’ve been playing long past their teenage years. Nathan Stocker (guitar), Whistler Allen (drums), Jake Luppen (guitar, lead vocals), and Zach Sutton (bass)–who more commonly go by the names of Stitches, Beans, Turntan, and Espo, respectively–met while attending a performing arts high school, but after two years of friendly competition, they decided to put down the guns and start a band. In the summer of 2013, they became Hippo Campus.

From “Suicide Saturday” to “Souls” and “Little Grace,” the quartet’s songs revolve around the pleasures and pains of teen angst, but also their growth into adulthood. The band’s debut EP, Bashful Creatures, arrives tomorrow, November 18. Before the release, Stitches, Beans, Turntan, and Espo told us about their names, their childhoods, and the band’s origin.
