This all original, female-fronted, five-piece moxy rock band from Ithaca, NY is driving hard at bigger things and has been busy building an airtight justification for all the buzz surrounding it, both throughout their hometown region and along the east coast as they’ve begun to tour nationally. The band gets better and better, with its solid-as-a-rock rhythm section, eclectic library of vintage keyboard sounds, bold and inventive electric guitar stylings, electrifying lead vocals from force of nature Maddy Walsh, and uplifting, infectious songs that leave audiences humming for days.
Darin Jones (29) and Caleb Fischer(27) are the namesakes and front men of the Pacific North West based five-piece group: Jones & Fischer, and have started something truly unique in country music that has captured thousands of fans across the US and Canada. The two have blended their different styles and influences from each of their own hometowns; Seattle, Washington and San Antonio Texas, and it’s made for a fiery new sound that is all their own amongst the wave of overly processed, lyrically cliché’ and substance-less songs currently emanating from the country genre. They are going against the proverbial ‘industry grain’ by pursuing a career in country music while not living in Nashville, and not being signed to a major label or booking agency. They are completely independent, building their fan base like a band should: hitting the road and paying their dues one show at a time, playing the songs they wrote.
Imagine if you put R. Kelly through a banjo.

The Social Animals are a full time, van-living, beer-drinking young band. Experts across the globe have called them “The Opposite Of Toby Keith”. They speak through elegantly sarcastic and thoughtful lyrics splattered across a canvas of indie rock/Americana instrumentation. They don’t do backflips at their live shows or slide across their knees into guitar solos. Instead, they play their music passionately and honestly, leaving room for a shirt-staining dance party in a crowded club, or one too many glasses of wine and a cab ride home from a listening room. Between songs, their dry commentary on the status of their lives and the world around them often causes people to look up from their phone screens, an action known to be scary and difficult for people throughout the nation.
