JONNY DRAKE (Jon Drake & The Shakes)
Jonny's unique banjo and acoustic focused neo-folk sound recalls that of Roy Orbison, Neil Young, Grandaddy, Kurt Vile, and at times The National. Simple and dark, analog and tape driven, the new material is hypnotic and addictive. Drake will be joined by Ann Marie Meyers and Christine Chung Kenny on vocals as well as Daniel Villarreal (Jaime Rojo, Brother George, Amy Saraiya & The Outcome) on cajon.
"[Drake's] fist single, "Lies For No One", shows off the strengths of simplicity in its ability to get into your head and stay there." -Midwest Action
[Wooden Rings] approaches the genre of acoustic chamber pop with a magazine of powerful songs that keep you listening. Songwriter Ramah D. Jihan Malebranche will be performing solo, with a great deal of new material to share.
“Wooden Rings, an eclectic and ambitious ensemble from Chicago, have managed to encapsulate a sound so uniquely diverse, it quickly finds roots in the hearts of any honest music fan. Although their sound is self-described as “acoustic chamber pop,” the amount of honesty and emotion expelled through their music creates such a direct connection to the listener that it’s as if their songs were being written just for you.”-Old Town School of Folk Music
