The 4onthefloor: 4onthefloor's new album, Spirit Of Minneapolis, evokes the spirit of American rebellion. That same pioneering spirit that brought us everything from modern aviation to rock & roll. Harnessing that spirit, the band is using it to break down modern music's barriers down to our basic musical traditions. That ageless sound of rock & roll isn't what it used to be, but the rumble of stomping feet emanating from Minneapolis is an omen of great things on the horizon.
Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles: Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles have completed work on their fourth full length release, HEAT.  Many of the songs center around the feeling of being trapped and isolated while yearning to be somewhere else; physically or psychologically. HEAT showcases the artistic growth and sonic evolution of the band's sound which translates into a magnificent record laced with scorching lyricism, hauntingly beautiful melodies and gorgeous harmonies that create an expansive, yet highly focused and cohesive body of work.  
Alison Scott: While staying indier than indie, and completely ignoring the hipster rulebook, through word of mouth with very little radio or media hype, Alison is making the kind of soul music that PEOPLE love, not the kind that people are TOLD they should love by reading someone else's blog.  
Kevin Bowe:  Bowe has a long history as a guitarist/writer/producer, landing 3 platinums and songs on 2 Grammy winning albums working with Paul Westerberg, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Etta James and others.  "A sturdy cross between Tom Petty and Band Of Horses, these songs sound like they've been circling around in the ethos indefinitely, Bowe and co. lasso them down to earth. In a word ... outstanding"  (No Depression)
