The Modern Electric
The Modern Electric
The Modern Electric are the next great American rock band. They are driven by the feeling that time is running out; that it is crucial to express what really matters to loved ones before it is too late. They believe that honest, authentic songwriting has the power to articulate emotions that words cannot. Inspired as much by classic cinema as they are David Bowie and ELO, they’ve coined the genre “cinematic rock” to describe their powerful piano-charged sound. Each richly-orchestrated pop symphony is led by a voice that has no comparison; a unique vibrato saturated in soul and sensitivity.

Their latest album “Original Motion Picture Soundtrack,” produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead), is being called “a movie for the ears”, “widescreen pop.” Like a coming of age story about chasing crushes, surviving loneliness, and finding close friends, it is timeless in its scope and undeniably contagious in its melodic focus. Writing and directing a short film to accompany each track on the album, the band has set themselves apart as true auteurs of rock n’ roll – ambitious filmmakers as well as visceral songwriters.

They’ve brought their epic live show across the Midwest and to festivals such as SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon, and WMC after being awarded “Band of the Year” and “Album of the Year” in their hometown of Cleveland, OH. The Modern Electric aren’t creating songs that mimic the trendy sounds of the year. They are creating the kind of songs that are put on mixtapes for loved ones; songs that memories are made to. These are the kind of songs that become the soundtrack to a person’s life.

They are currently directing a new web series that shows what it takes for a band to write, direct, and release a short film a month for a full year. Entitled “Video Music,” the series gives a behind-the-scenes look into the making of each critically-acclaimed music video.

Formally of the band Don't Fear the Sun, Tim began performing in the Cleveland circuit under his own name in 2014.

Within a few short months, he sold out his first two headlining shows at Mahalls and released his first single “Going Out Tonight”, who's catchy hook created a buzz in the Ohio and New York music communities.

Doc Robinson
Doc Robinson
we are a rock and roll band from Columbus Ohio
our names are nick & jon
we make backyard bbq breakup music
the first song we wrote was its over. we were trying to write our own version of macy grays i try.
in a few hours the song was done, and later that night in a text message we decided to start a
band called DOC ROBINSON combining the two musical bookends of our influences dr dog and
smokey robinson. we would later find out through you tube search results that DOC ROBINSON
is also a world renowned fighting rooster, who has since squired several generations of fighting
roosters.
we made our first ep GOLDEN DAZE with mike landolt, who is canadian, at vital studios in
columbus ohio. It took 6 months, 237 cups of strong coffee, 74 pieces of uncle nick’s greek fried
chicken, 26 separate viewings of the music video ‘out for a rip’ by canadian artist shark tank,
and 1 bottle of moonshine.
next we made a full length record called DEEP END. It took 4 months, 13 musicians, (george
barrie, jake levy, jeff bass, aaron bishara, todd hamric, seth bain, adam bidwell, terrance farmer,
larry cook, adrian jusdanis, evan oberla, doug neel) 3 babies (frankie barrie, ella bass, ramona
d’andrea) 2 studios (oranjudio, shred shed) 66 kickstarter backers, 7 adderals, and 1 trombone
glissando.
We are putting out two records on 4.20.18 called RING OF LOVE and LICKS VOL 1. ROL was
recorded and pressed at musicol studios in Columbus, OH established and continuously
operating since 1964. The arsenal of analogue equipment it provided was an embarrassment of
riches. Keith Hanlon expertly engineered every performance, mostly live full band takes with our
first string of ringers George Barrie- elc gtr , Jeff Bass- bass and Aaron Bishara - drums. then a
small army of friends and fellow musicians came in to record. Robert Mason on piano and
organ, Riley Hall on backing vocals, Evan Westfall on banjo, Kevin O'Neil on flute and sax, Rob
Maccabee on baritone trumpet, Adam Bidwell on trumpet, and Chris Shaw on violin. We wrote 3
of the songs with help from our friends. Ring of Love w/ Rob Maccabee, Leave A Light On
w/ Taylor Meier, and Like You Do w/ Jason Quicksall.
It was then produced inside of George Barrie's Track Shack, then down to Athens, OH for Josh
Antonnuccio at 3 Elliott studios to cast his magic spells on it. Next off to Vital Studios where
Fred Blitzer mastered it with staggering precision. Also we sent Leave A Light On and Morning
Stay off to sunny Seattle to our canadian brother Mike Landy for his special gold dust. Finally
back to Musicol where it was pressed into sweet black vinyl.
LICKS VOL 1 is a collaboration mixtape we created with 12 other musicians from all different
genres.
this record represents the efforts of 14 artists working together to create something new under
the sun. jeff / ashawn / george / jake / nick / jon / liz / sarob / glenn / ashad / pxvce/ siri / aziza /
taylor / parker. all of our labors were under the jedi guidance of Joey Gurwin at his Oranjudio
Studio, where we recorded, mixed and mastered the record. made possible with the love and
generosity of jeni’s splendid ice creams / four strings brewing co. / and soul step records. 6
songs available on vinyl through soulstep records.
