Mike Mains
Mike Mains
Mike Mains, a Detroit based musician, loves rock and roll. He also loves the creative craft of large hooks and lyrical sensibility. His earnest honesty is evident in his music, his shows, his life. Mike approaches his musical passion with lunch pal in hand, hammering out meaningful, well crafted songs like a skilled tradesman.

With two full length albums and an EP(2012’s “Home”, 2013’s “Everything” EP and 2014’s “Calm Down, Everything’s Fine”), Mike has established himself as a more than just a song writer, he’s a song “crafter”. With high octane rockers like “Miracle”(Home), “Stereo”(Home), “Take it All”(CDEF), and “Burn”(CDEF) or slower, emotional tracks like “Lady Love”(Home), “Drifter”(Home, or “Where Love Dies”(CDEF) there is plenty to choose from for music lovers alike.

Performing over 300 shows the last 3 years, Mike Mains has built a committed fan base. His shows have proven to be high energy, interactive and exciting. 2016 has seen him captivate audiences in any setting. Wanting to offer an unique, intimate view into his songs, he played his first 9 week “Living Room Tour”. This 35 date North American tour brought him into the homes and backyards of fans to perform his songs in a new context. The shows received raving reviews and many sold out shows.

Mike again will enter the studio in 2017 to record his 3rd full length LP. Early demos’ point to an expansion of his already established foundation: exciting rock and roll.
Brett Newski
Brett Newski
Brett Newski has existed on the fringe of society and avoided the “American Dream” at all costs. At age 25, he took matters into his own hands by quitting all of his part-time jobs and becoming a full-time nomad, posting up in the nooks and crannies of earth and sub-letting rooms in Vietnam, South Africa, Germany and Wisconsin to write songs and recharge between tours. Newski’s sophomore LP “Land, Air, Sea, Garage” was recorded at a surf camp in the Sri Lankan jungle, and at home in Wisconsin. The album is about diving into the world with no safety net and landing on your feet. It’s a smart indie rock n’ roll record with tongue-in-cheek moments that show parallels to Violent Femmes, Jonathan Richman, Mountain Goats, early Weezer, Frank Turner, & Elliot Smith.
The DuPont Brothers
The DuPont Brothers
Two brothers are reunited after years of geographical separation by a resonant collaboration in music. Since the formation of the group in March of 2013, the Burlington, VT based indie-folk duo has honed in on their kindred synergy, living on the road while developing a large palette of material. In two and a half years, the brothers managed to play over 400 shows, covering 50,000 tour miles in support of their debut, self titled EP and first full length release, Heavy as Lead. The songs have taken them all over the country, making tour stops in the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, Mid West and South. Versatile songwriting modes, blood harmonies and fingerstyle guitar arrangements have opened doors to support a wide variety of national acts including Grace Potter, Sturgill Simpson, Bahamas, Jerry Douglas, Langhorne Slim, Blake Mills, Howie Day, The Lone Bellow, Ben Sollee, Horse Feathers and Chris Eldridge and Julian Lage.

“Together the DuPont Brothers resonate at just the right frequency. There were moments that honestly gave me chills."
-Dan Bolles, Seven Days VT


“It’s the essence of what stop-you-in-your-tracks music is suppose to do, which is shake you out of your day-to-day life like an old friend who wants you know everything will be ok, in time, as long as you never forget to believe in the endless possibilities of the cosmos.”
-Garret K. Woodward, Smoky Mountain News


“The debut LP from The DuPont Brothers is so pretty it hurts.”
- Maeri Ferguson, The Horn


“With the DuPont Brothers, we take a step back, slow our pace right down and take one deep breath, heart rate sliding down the scale as our thoughts climb through the murky path into our mind’s eye and away from the shallow chatter of everyday life. ‘Heavy As Lead’ takes us on a journey, one that is directed by emotion and mood, and guided by prose. The lyrics are perhaps as flowery as the music, poetry the basis for the construction of the tracks and a story clouded in ambiguity unfolding with each step.”
- Vickye, For the Country Record
