Tommy Malone has had a musical love affair with fans for over 30 years. As the ‘heart and center’ front man of the legendary Americana act The Subdudes, he has carved his way as a gifted singer, player and songwriter with a distinctive musical voice. Tommy’s self-assured exterior masks a writer who mines heartache and elation, the surreal and the everyday, and who crafts the experiences into instantly memorable tunes. He is an artist who exudes a laid-back, down-to-earth, instantly familiar style that epitomizes Americana Rock Music. In Tommy’s solo band, as lead guitarist and singer, he punctuates soulful, heart-felt vocals with playing that is at turns joyful, incendiary and melancholic.
Described as “High-Octane Rocky Mountain Dance-Grass”, Whitewater Ramble (WWR) uses a simple recipe to craft its’ sound: start with bluegrass instrumentation, add drums, and finish with a boundary-less approach to grassing-up everything from disco house grooves to roots to Americana. The Colorado-bred quintet combines the elements of mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums and vocals to explore the musical boundaries of multiple genres and to fuel their own mixture of original music and innovative cover song interpretations.
Based out of the south bay of San Diego, neighboring the highest crossed border in the world, STRANGER is turning heads through multicultural and musical diversity with a soulful blend of reggae roots, rock and jazz combined with conscious lyrics and unparalleled musicianship. The name says it all: STRANGER does not fit into a mold. Even from the inception of the group, its diverse mixture of influences set the band apart from the other acts in the reggae genre and led to the band’s mysterious, yet creatively appropriate name.
Worth describes his solo music as “bohemian blues hop” or “folk gospel.” he claims to have developed most of his vocal style and performance ability on the street. To the listener his voice evokes an intense emotional response, even a full body experience. It is simultaneously timeless and new, recalling contemporary influences like Jeff Buckley, Martin Sexton, and Amos Lee and classics such as Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder. The songwriting is eclectic and infuses lyrical depth with memorable melodies.
Catch Trout Steak Revival live and you can’t help but notice the band’s gift to thrive in the moment. The sounds of fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, bass, dobro, and accordion blend in TSR’s bluegrass-inspired mountain music. While each member of the band composes original tunes, harmonic contributions are added by the entire band, following the bluegrass tradition and creating a unique sound.
