Red Wanting Blue
Red Wanting Blue
Led by singer-songwriter Scott Terry, Red Wanting Blue is proudly based in Columbus, Ohio, but could be America’s local band. For years, the group has gone about logging thousands of miles on the road throughout the nation’s heartland, making fans the hard way – one at a time.

With the aid of positive word of mouth and an unwavering perseverance, Red Wanting Blue has established a devoted following in and around the Midwest where the band regularly fills clubs reserved for bigger names.

As Red Wanting Blue’s touring schedule has grown to non-stop, and with an appearance on David Letterman to boot, the band is now seeing its following growing throughout the rest of the country as well.

Terry’s passionate and poetic songs, anchored by his powerful baritone, are the kinds of tunes that could only have been written by a man who has lived this kind of life on the road.

Traveling with Terry are band mates Mark McCullough (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Greg Rahm (Keys, Guitars, Organ, Vocals), Eric Hall Jr. (Guitars, Lap Steel, Mandolin, Banjo, Vocals) and Dean Anshutz (Drums, Percussion, Glockenspiel), who together build the unshakable rock powerhouse that supports Terry’s big voice.
Luke Elliot
Luke Elliot
"Discovering his knack for writing music at age 14 and collaborating with a multitude of bands over the years, multi-instrumentalist and song craftsman Luke Elliot (piano, vocals, guitar, organ), found his current musical family, Jim McGee (electric guitar), Ed Barber (bass/backing vocals), and Dan Peck (drums), in New York City.


Creating dark, folk-infused rock reminiscent of Rufus Wainwright, Elliott Smith, Nick Cave, and Bob Dylan, Elliot and his band gained increasing attention after the debut of Death of a Widow and appearance on “Folk Music for the End of the World” (featuring Sharon Van Etten), both released on Yerbird Records in 2010. In 2011, Elliot was introduced to Paul Cantagallo and composed the track “Benny’s a Bum” for Cantagallo’s independent film, Benny The Bum, which ultimately won the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival in 2012.


Elliot has impressed audiences throughout notable Northeastern venues, including Rockwood Music Hall, Mercury Lounge, North Star, and the legendary World Cafe Live, where Elliot has headlined. 2014 is already shaping up to be a huge year for Elliot. The self-produced EP, Provisions, was released on June 24, and he’s set to return to the studio shortly thereafter to work on a follow up with legendary producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.)"
Levee Drivers
Levee Drivers
Levee Drivers' music embodies the sounds of old country souls being reborn into tomorrow's rock. Their music is a modern take on the story-telling of Johnny Cash, driven by early country and blues roots with a startling vocal rendition likened to a cross of Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams. Levee Drivers embrace an eclectic mix of sound that engages listeners of all ages and across many genres. They were named "Best of Philly Rising" 2007 by World Cafe Live. Levee Drivers also became the winners of the 2009 Beta Hi-Fi Festival hosted by World Cafe Live, a multi-night music competition with voting by the audience and a panel of judges. In 2010, Levee Drivers won the Deli Magazine "Best Philly Emerging Artist Poll" and came in 9th in the overall contest and were up again for the 2011 "Best Philly Emerging Artist". And recently in 2013, took home the Tri-State Indie Music Award for "Best Indie/Folk Americana Band" in the Tri-State Area.
