Ludlow
Ludlow
Ludlow is a Chicago-based indie-folk band who perform songs with deep tones, memorable melodies and multiple vocal harmonies. Begun by songwriter Mark Schoeck, Ludlow also includes guitarist/vocalist Josh Noble and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Maria Kloess. Ludlow released their debut album 'Siren on the Shore' in March of 2017, and will be playing those songs throughout the Midwest all summer long.
One More Moon
One More Moon
One More Moon is a four-piece from Chicago that got it’s start in early 2015 when singer/songwriter Eric Quigley decided to take his solo work to the next level. Guitarist Roger Smit, bassist Chris Rawlins, and drummer Aaron Schapiro fill out One More Moon’s line up. Their mix of folk, blues, and rock – along with the many differing influences each member brings to the table – transform Quigley’s foundations into songs wholly unique to the band. Since their debut, One More Moon has played various venues in and around Chicago, including the Cubby Bear and the Metro. They released their debut EP on New Year's Day 2017. It's available on iTunes, Spotify and other major streaming services.
Katy Guillen And The Girls
Katy Guillen And The Girls
Katy Guillen and the Girls have established themselves as an
authentic, authoritative rock band. In their short time as a band, the
trio has shaped their own musical identity. While rooted heavily in
the blues, they take cues from guitar behemoths like Jimi Hendrix,
the visionary songwriting of Patty Griffin and the indie rock
revivalist sound of Heartless Bastards.

Propelled by a loyal contingent in their hometown of Kansas City
and an impressive showing as finalists at the 2014 International
Blues Challenge in Memphis, Katy Guillen and the Girls have since
taken their vivacious brand of roots rock to stages across the
globe. In addition to a persistent cross-country performance
schedule, they’ve accepted invitations to play the Montreal
International Jazz Festival (July 2014) and Joe Bonamassa’s
Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea cruise (February 2015). In
November 2014, they were sponsored by a cultural development
organization (Kultur i Väst) to take a 10-day tour of Sweden. They
opened for The Doobie Brothers at the ‘Foundation for the Children
of the Californias’ annual benefit concert in San Diego (October
2015). The trio has also become one of Kansas City’s most sought-
after groups, earning prestigious slots at local festivals like Middle
of the Map Fest and Boulevardia, and routinely selling out 500-
plus-capacity venues.

Though the band formed less than 5 years ago, it took root when
Guillen first picked up the guitar at the age of 8. At 14, she began
participating in blues jams around Kansas City, and within a few
years she was a featured guest with local blues legends like John
Paul’s Flying Circus. By 2010, she was writing songs and
collaborating with veteran drummer Go-Go Ray, with whom she
released her first album, When I Get Away.
In September 2012, Guillen was offered an opening slot for Royal
Southern Brotherhood at renowned Kansas City blues venue
Knuckleheads Saloon, but at the time didn’t have a backing band.
When she enlisted the talents of bassist Claire Adams and
drummer Stephanie Williams, an immediate chemistry formed that
would eventually push her songs to new heights. Not content to
simply hold down the beat, Williams brings a signature melodic

percussive voice to the group, compelled by her rock influences
and experience in jazz ensembles. With Adams’ instincts as a
multi-instrumentalist and composer, her impeccable bass lines and
backing vocals are an ideal complement to Guillen’s searing,
commanding guitar tone. While Guillen’s years as a seasoned
blues guitarist—along with her education in flamenco guitar
style—have informed her songwriting, the group’s collective
strengths lend an immediacy to her songs while elevating and
substantiating her earnest lyrical delivery.
With every new opportunity and locale, Katy Guillen and the Girls
spread their infectious and original mix of classic American genres
to eager music lovers and expand their already sizable fan base.
