Rod Hamdallah - HAILING FROM ATLANTA, GA, GARAGE ROCKER ROD HAMDALLAH HAS BEEN TEARING UP THE SOUTHEAST'S VIBRANT MUSIC SCENE SINCE BEFORE HE WAS OLD ENOUGH TO ORDER HIS FIRST DRINK. AT 16, ROD BEGAN SOAKING UP THE SOUTHERN DELTA BLUES AND GARAGE ROCK SOUNDS AT A RELENTLESS PACE; INFLUENCED BY EARLY SOUL, BLUES AND GARAGE ROCK, ROD TOOK HIS SOUND TO ANOTHER LEVEL. AT 17, HE STARTED SHARING THE STAGE WITH INFLUENCES SUCH AS, SEAN COSTELLO, DEXTER ROMWEBER AND MORE. Hans Chew (NYC)- Perhaps best known for his keyboard work with other artists like D. Charles Speer, Jack Rose, Endless Boogie, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Steve Gunn, Hans Chew has established himself as a versatile singer, songwriter and performer in his own right. His 2010 debut album Tennessee & Other Stories… received four stars from Rolling Stone and was heralded by Uncut as one of the top 25 albums of the year.  A native Tennessean, Chew’s style has been described in wide fashion, with comparisons to artists like James Booker, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Feat, Nirvana, Little Richard, and Leon Russell. “My grandfather sang harmony on Sundays in a little country church quartet and in the evening I’d hear him pickin’ and grinnin’ that 'high lonesome sound' of Jimmy Martin and Hank Williams out on the carport with his brothers. My mother turned me on to Hendrix and the Stones, but my father listened only to classical music: I knew Beethoven’s Fifth before Led Zeppelin’s fourth.” Also a dynamic live performer, iTunes’s Music Editor sums it up: “Hans Chew cranks up the tempo and the manic rock ’n’ roll performance until it feels like you’ve landed in the early ‘70s, when Derek & The Dominos were piecing together Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs and The Rolling Stones were waiting around Nellcote to record the bits and pieces of Exile on Main St.” Nikki and the Phantom Callers- Southern Gothic Rock-n-Roll from Atlanta, Georgia; based on fire and brimstone, with the subtle rebellion of such notions. www.rodhamdallah.com www.hanschew.com https://nikkiandthephantomcallers.com
