ARLO MCKINLEY & THE LONESOME SOUND
When Arlo takes the stage, prepare to feel every heart in the room begin to crumble under the weight of honesty and emotion in McKinley’s lyrics. He’s been on the mission of writing truthful and honest songs since his self titled release Arlo McKinley & The Lonesome Sound (2014).
Arlo’s songwriting crosses genres of country-folk/rock with gobs of soul and deep and profound introspection. Being billed alongside musicians such as Tyler Childers, John Moreland, Jason Isbell, Justin Townes Earle and many others have helped Arlo McKinley get his name outside his hometown of Cincinnati and has gained him fans across the US & Europe.
Arlo’s sophomore album Die Midwestern Vol. 1 comes out in early 2019, and is sure to continue cementing him as a one of the important voices in American music that speak to love, struggle, loss & redemption.

“Seeing tears well up in the eyes of many, and having to choke back a few myself, there’s no question Arlo McKinley is the next buzzworthy name on the Americana circuit.” Americana Highway

JEREMY DAVID BAKER
Jeremy David Baker is an American folk rock artist, originally from Florida. He signed with Green Shoe Records in 2015. Jeremy’s music tells of hope, loss, and revival. His strong voice is full of texture and emotion. His first album with Green Shoe Records is in its final stages and will be released in early 2016.
Jeremy grew up in a very musical family. It has always been a Baker tradition to pass the guitar around at family events. His musical upbringing was an exceptionally eclectic search, carrying Jeremy from one genre to the next. He was raised on early rock n’ roll by the likes of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. As a young teen, he discovered punk rock and spent a few years playing angsty fast-paced anthems before falling in love with old, classic, country folk music.
“If you dig through my record collection you’ll find blues, jazz, punk, metal, country, even a little hip hop. No jam bands though…never jam bands.”
Now, as a solo artist, he reveals the culmination of years spent refining a melting-pot sound which is both inventive and enchanting.
