Michigan Rattlers
Lifelong friends and deep-north natives, musical group Michigan Rattlers play heavyhearted folk-rock with an aching dose of Midwestern nice. Graham Young (guitar), Adam Reed (upright bass), and Christian Wilder (piano) began writing music and performing together in their Northern Michigan high school. “Petoskey is a small place. Beautiful, but secluded. It’s hard to start a musical career in a place where there are more deer than people.” Still, they regularly played every bar, cafe, and stage in town, developing a musical chemistry informed by the likes of AC/DC, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Seger, and more. After a few years apart, Reed and Young settled down in Los Angeles, recorded a short demo, and began playing locally. The demo found its way into the hands of super-producer Johnny K (Plain White T's, 3 Doors Down), and they cut the bulk of their first EP at NRG Studios in just one day. "My favorite music is recorded that way," continues Reed. "You get in a room, plug in, and cut songs live. The energy of the recording comes directly from the physical performance, and it puts the listener into that specific time and place." This self-titled Michigan Rattlers EP attracted glowing reviews from No Depression, Bluegrass Situation, B3 Science, and Rolling Stone, who named the band one of their “Ten New Country Artists You Need To Know” in 2016. They spent the rest of that year and much of the next touring in support of this release. In September 2017, Pianist Christian Wilder was added to the band’s lineup. Now a trio, the group headed into the studio to record their newest EP, Wasting the Meaning. Comprised of three cover songs, the project was conceived as a way to explore deeper into the recording process and pay homage to some of their favorite songwriters. Currently, the group is hard at work recording their first full-length release. It is slated for release in the summer of 2018.

Miki Fiki
Miki Fiki is an indie/pop band that formed in early 2017 in Nashville, TN and comprises five friends: Simon Knudtson (Drums), Julia Meredith (Saxophone), Hunter Mulkey (Bass), Logan Rifenberg (Keys/BGVs), and Ted Hartog (Keys, Lead Vocals). After releasing a self-titled debut EP in March 2017, the band went on to play numerous shows in Nashville, as well as regional runs that took them from Alabama to Virginia to Ohio. After all members had graduated from school, the band went into the studio to record their most recent single, "Stranger," at Iron Oak Studios. Released on all digital platforms on November 17th, 2017, "Stranger" is the band's first full effort. Miki Fiki is currently planning a spring/summer tour and released their second single, Tell Me How, on March 2nd.
