Known for their progressive song writing and energetic live performances, Mo Lowda & the Humble's beginnings were in the beer-soaked basements of Philadelphia.

The band's 2016 sophomore release, 'Act Accordingly', is a short and sweet embodiment of the band's natural progression; refining their already formidable sound. Since, the band has seen a line up change, with the addition of bassist/multi instrumentalist Jeff Lucci; bringing an elevated dynamic to the band as they continue through 2017 with endless tour dates and the creation of LP2.

Mo Lowda & The Humble

Known for their progressive song writing and energetic live performances, Mo Lowda & the Humble's beginnings were in the beer-soaked basements of Philadelphia. Following the release of their first full-length, Curse the Weather, the band started to hit the road. 2015 was highlighted by shows throughout the country and plays at notable summer festivals such as Firefly. The band's 2016 sophomore release, 'Act Accordingly', is a short and sweet embodiment of the band's natural progression; refining their already formidable sound. Since, the band has seen a line up change, with the addition of bassist/multi instrumentalist Jeff Lucci; bringing an elevated dynamic to the band as they continue through 2017 with endless tour dates and the creation of LP2.

Quiet Hollers

Quiet Hollers formed in Louisville around the songwriting of singer/guitarist Shadwick Wilde, who originally formed the group with the idea of playing only one show—the CD release of his solo effort, Unforgivable Things, in 2010. The group’s debut, I Am the Morning, followed in 2013. The alt-country styled album was a limited success, spawning a cult following in the US and some international critical praise, allowing the band to continue touring on the DIY circuit, where changes in personnel and taste saw the band exploring territory beyond the genre.

In 2015 the band’s self-titled sophomore album Quiet Hollers introduced them to a much broader audience, drawing praise both for the breadth of its influences and for Wilde’s lyricism. Consequence of Sound called it a “beautiful portrait… breaking the confines of roots music” with PopMatters aptly noting the band’s “strong post-hardcore influence.” The album brought the band to Europe for the first time, selling out shows there and back at home stateside. Breakout singles found their way onto TV shows, coffeehouse playlists, and a #9 debut on the FMQB college and indie charts.

Quiet Hollers signed with the indie label SonaBLAST! for their third album, Amen Breaks. The album draws parallels between the modern entertainment landscape and the cultural crossover of the 1970s– another decade marred by division, political corruption, and terrorist bombs. Their shape-shifting palate makes use of orchestral strings and brass, vintage drum-machines and samples (including the Amen Break, the most sampled piece of music in history). Amen Breaks explores themes of spirituality, sexuality, and mental illness.

The Potomac Accord

The Potomac Accord formed in 2000 in St. Louis, MO USA to explore introspective and subtler spaces through dynamics, and has toured nearly all of upper North America far and wide on the dark, lyrical strength of its powerful glow-through-the-gloom keyboard & guitar sound. Somewhere between Joy Division, Television, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, this keyboard fronted band erupts into Fugazi guitar grinds, Tame Impala beats, and Bad Plus mayhem when you'd least expect it.
