Information About Some Of The Announced Artists:
The Lonely Biscuits
The Lonely Biscuits are an Alternative Rock band hailing from Nashville, TN. The band is comprised of Grady Wenrich (Vocals, Guitar), Sam Gidley (Drums) and Nick Byrd (Bass) and was formed in 2011 while all three members were living in the same hall at Belmont University.
After spending the last few years releasing EPs (including their latest, “The San Francisco EP”), touring the country, and playing festivals like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Hangout Fest, Firefly, and more, the band has found their footing and are gearing up to release their debut full length record.
Frontman Scott Schmadeke (vocals, piano, Mellotron, guitar) formed the band in 2013 in Bloomington, IN with fellow former Indiana University students. Bloomington’s rotating tight-knit community of musicians, artists, and writers gave Harpooner a freedom of expression and fertile ground to form a network of basement-show locations close to the IU campus.
Schmadeke has quickly built a good reputation in the music scene having toured as pianist for national acts Houndmouth, Diane Coffee, and Andrew Combs.
Sad Baxter is heavy pop sludge featuring idiots Deezy and Alex. “Let’s git sad.”
