Motherfolk, Cincinnati’s strongest gift to the indie rock scene, have been the focus of increasing attention with every release and tour since 2014. Their last release, Fold , earned serious industry and tastemaker praise, and the energetic live shows that followed created a loyal and significant fan base.
On the road, they’ve supported such acts as Brandi Carlile, Magic Giant, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Lydia, Blues Traveler, and The Classic Crime. In the studio, they’ve been fortunate to collaborate with amazing producers, from Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, VanceJoy) to Tony Hoffer (Beck, Chromeo, M83, Foster The People).
With their newest release, Family Ghost , coming out October 18th everything has gotten bigger for Motherfolk. Musicianship, energy, intensity and songwriting all define a new peak for the band. This is the album that places the group in the spotlight their powerful music has earned.
About James & The Drifters:
JATD is a 4 piece rock band. A brotherhood turned band. But always a brotherhood first. JATD invites you to rummage through the depths, lean into life and to follow a glow that is sometimes dimmed, but never extinguished. JATD is an exploration of passion, happiness, and the merger between music and the connection with ineffable things. The songs are hearty, the rhythm pulses, the harmonies cut, and their live performances entice. And there is no James, only Drifters.
Formed in small town Indiana JATD now calls Ft. Wayne home. For over 8 years JATD has written, produced and recorded numerous full length records and EP’s. Their latest full length record was released under Neat Neat Neat Records on February 1st 2019.
About Darrin Bradbury:
Darrin Bradbury writes about the way things really are in America – a singular perspective shaped by a natural gift for storytelling, a lingering battle with depression, and a sly sense of humor. A self-described folk satirist who has toured the country for more than a decade, Bradbury collects his oddball observations in his newest album, Talking Dogs & Atom Bombs.
Bradbury grew up in New Jersey with an early interest in performing, partly because of his mother’s career as a circus clown. At the age of 7, he felt certain that he would either become a songwriter or a cartoonist. He learned to play guitar as a vessel to tell his stories — and because his handwriting and grammar steered him away from being a novelist. By the age of 18, he’d discovered Bob Dylan, Jack Kerouac, and Paul Simon, and decided to hit the road.
At 25, he moved from Charlottesville, Virginia, to Nashville, to try making it as a songwriter. For three months, he slept in his car in a Walmart parking lot, and developed a local following by playing open mic nights. With a handful of self-funded EPs and albums, Bradbury steadily cultivated a national audience by touring constantly. Produced by Kenneth Pattengale of the Milk Carton Kids, Talking Dogs & Atom Bombs is Bradbury’s first release for ANTI- Records.
