Ludlow
Ludlow
Ludlow is a Chicago-based indie-folk band who perform songs with deep tones, memorable melodies and multiple vocal harmonies. Begun by songwriter Mark Schoeck, Ludlow also includes guitarist/vocalist Josh Noble and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Maria Kloess. Ludlow released their debut album 'Siren on the Shore' in March of 2017, and will be playing those songs throughout the Midwest all summer long.
One More Moon
One More Moon
One More Moon is a four-piece from Chicago that got it’s start in early 2015 when singer/songwriter Eric Quigley decided to take his solo work to the next level. Guitarist Roger Smit, bassist Chris Rawlins, and drummer Aaron Schapiro fill out One More Moon’s line up. Their mix of folk, blues, and rock – along with the many differing influences each member brings to the table – transform Quigley’s foundations into songs wholly unique to the band. Since their debut, One More Moon has played various venues in and around Chicago, including the Cubby Bear and the Metro. They released their debut EP on New Year's Day 2017. It's available on iTunes, Spotify and other major streaming services.
Katy Guillen And The Girls
Katy Guillen And The Girls
With each release, Katy Guillen & the Girls take new strides toward enhancing and expanding their creative process. In five years as a national touring act, the trio has shaped a musical identity rooted in the blues, taking cues from the timeless guitar riffs of Jimi Hendrix to the visionary songwriting of Patty Griffin and the indie rock revivalist sound of Heartless Bastards.

Katy Guillen & the Girls have amassed a substantial following across the country for their vivacious brand of roots rock. In addition to being one of Kansas City’s most distinguished acts, they have performed at such high-profile events as the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the King Biscuit Blues Festival, and opened for major acts like The Doobie Brothers and Robin Trower.

A seasoned guitarist who picked up her first guitar at age 8 and began participating in blues jams around Kansas City at 14, Katy Guillen established the trio in 2012, when she was offered a support slot for blues supergroup Royal Southern Brotherhood. Being without a backing band, she enlisted the talents of Claire Adams and Stephanie Williams, forming an immediate chemistry that would push her songs to new heights.

Williams brings a distinctively melodic voice to the drum kit, compelled by rock influences like Band of Skulls and Sleater-Kinney, and background in jazz ensembles. With Adams’ instincts as a multi-instrumentalist and composer, her impeccable bass lines and backing vocals are an ideal complement to Guillen’s commanding guitar licks and earnest lyrical delivery.

Katy Guillen & the Girls’ third album, “Remember What You Knew Before,” is a culmination of the experiences they’ve gained and the influences they’ve discovered as a group.The acoustic album revisits material from previous releases, tightening the focus on Guillen’s authentic songcraft and the group’s versatility. Inspired to create something fresh but familiar to listeners, they explored the roots of blues, country and folk while developing new ideas to create these arrangements.
