Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons
Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons (Providence, RI) draw musically from the sounds of classic country, folk, and rock n' roll, while the highly literate lyrical content takes the listener down roads never before travelled. Fletcher's story-driven tales of life's losing end are balanced by those that search for redemption in a mixed-up world that blends the 19th century seamlessly with the present day. Their sophomore effort *White Lighter* has propelled them to great critical acclaim and an invitation to the 2012 Newport Folk Festival.
Toy Soldiers love a good song and dance. The lively & hard-working Philadelphia 5-piece have spent the past five years playing hundreds of shows, bringing their soulful brand of rock n' roll music to dive bars, festival stages and theaters all over the USA. And with the impending release of their second full-length, The Maybe Boys (produced by Bill Moriarty [Dr. Dog, Man Man]), they have no intention of slowing their roll. Named one of the “Top Bands to Watch in 2013” by USA Today, Toy Soldiers will continue to spread the music and inevitable good times well into 2013 and beyond.
