Left Lane Cruiser
Headed by singer/guitarist Freddy J IV, Left Lane Cruiser is a bona fide blues rock band from the American mid-west. Far from pretending to be rambling hobos for the sake of a manufactured image, Left Lane Cruiser has been genuinely living the blues for over a decade, bringing its freestyle jams to crowds all over the world.
 
“Shake and Bake”, the band’s new album, was cooked up in a van rolling heavy on the highway, headed by two baked and juiced musicians, veering across the lines, desperately steering towards rest and redemption at the nearest parking lot. It is a record about the juice that keeps the crowd dancing, the smoke that keeps the minds lifted. This is as real it gets.
 
Recorded “old school” analog by Jason Davis in his Fort Wayne’s studio, and with a cover by legendary artist William Stout (Ramones, Fred McDowell, Iggy Pop), “Shake and Bake” has a heavy sound and a big heart. For Left Lane Cruiser the blues is enduring and easy to feel.
Nate Bergman

His powerful vocals create a timeless sound that weaves through the rich tapestry of Nashville's musical heritage. Bergman's unique ability to infuse elements of Country, Rock, Folk, and Soul results in a sound that resonates with an increasingly diverse audience.

​Anchored in Nashville's vibrant music scene, Bergman's journey began with a passion for storytelling through song. His live performances are a testament to his exceptional talent, marked by a magnetic stage presence that captivates audiences wherever he sings. Whether with an acoustic guitar or a full band, Bergman's performances are a visceral experience, leaving an indelible mark on those fortunate enough to witness his artistry live.

Beyond the city limits, Bergman has navigated highways across the globe supporting legendary artists like Amigo The Devil, Clutch, Valerie June, Will Hoge, The War and Treaty, Thursday, Cursive, My Chemical Romance, Arlo McKinley, and Anthony Green.  Nate Bergman's commitment to creating a timeless musical legacy, combined with his powerful voice and electrifying live performances, establishes him as a standout figure in Nashville's thriving music scene. 

Adam Faucett

Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice the Onion A.V. Club warns “knocks your brain into the back of your skull,” Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding.

Called “one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer,” (Arkansas Times) Faucett has again pushed the borders of his “part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler” (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) with the release of It Took the Shape of a Bird, a record of his most personal, unbodied, and darkly beautiful songs to date.

Faucett began performing solo in 2006 when the demise of Russellville, Arkansas-based band, Taught the Rabbits, pushed him toward Chicago. He returned to Arkansas in 2007 to record his first solo album, The Great Basking Shark, and began touring nationally. 2008’s Show Me Magic, Show Me Out followed, featuring Faucett’s band, The Tall Grass, and a relentless tour schedule soon led to shows with Jason Isbell, Damien Jurado and Lucero.

2011 saw the release of More Like A Temple, which received praise from outlets including American SongwriterPaste MagazineNo Depression and Uprooted Music ReviewTemple also gained overseas support, landing at #14 on the EuroAmericana chart and received 5 stars from Altcountry.NL, bringing Adam to Europe for the first time.

2014’s Blind Water Finds Blind Water—Faucett’s first release with Last Chance Records—was named to American Songwriter’s “Top 50 Albums of 2014,” and found him back in Europe. In addition, he spent time as international and national tour support for Chuck Ragan, Austin Lucas, King Buzzo, The Bottle Rockets and Pallbearer.

Faucett’s latest record, It Took the Shape of a Bird (Last Chance Records), is available on all platforms and was named to Pop Matters' "Top 20 Americana Albums of 2018. His fifth solo album, it’s also his most personal and heaviest. From opening track “King Snake,” it wastes no time immersing the listener into a world of murky storytelling fueled by true, though often skewed accounts, wherein Faucett’s moving, heartrending melodies breathe life into a cast of tragic and historic characters and locales: a World War II-era orphan, Louisiana gris gris girls, a biker’s funeral procession, a friend struggling with faith and addiction, and even the Mackay Bennett—the ship which recovered most of the bodies from the Titanic disaster.

Bird delves deep into the spiritual and examines the creation of art, and the artist. Its backdrops are disparate, ranging from rural Arkansas to the dust clouds of deep space. And its moments of lilt are bolder due to its darker turns.

The Morning Bird

A band from the heart of the rust belt in Cleveland, Ohio blends folk, rock n’roll and country distilled with imagery core to the common person. The band started in 2018 by Jeremy Taylor (vocals, guitar) and Daniel Rice (guitar) and has played over 50 shows in about two years.

The band released their debut EP “Lonesome Leaving Sound” in July of 2019 and has released several singles in addition. The Morning Bird is currently working on their first full length album to be released in the first half of 2021.
