Marah In The Mainsail
Marah In The Mainsail
Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Marah in the Mainsail's sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry's gravel voice alongside Mercedes's crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrust forward by aggressive percussion, growling bass, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between.

Hamilton Handshake
Hamilton Handshake is a high falutin’, noise pollutin’ rock ‘n roll band from Cleveland. The quartet--Ryan Matthews, Evan Phillips, Dave "Ziggy" Deitke and Kyle Thomas--don't give a damn about making a good impression, but they know how to have a good time! While never losing sight of the goal of having fun, they slapped together a batch of sexy songs that became their EP, 'Busted & Bleeding'. The band recorded at Obese Studios, which is housed in the waiting room of a defunct doctor's office in North Ridgeville. 'Busted & Bleeding' proves to be a buttery batch of blues-infused rock 'n roll. Their single "Strut" is dripping with sex appeal--from the guitar line that slinks into existence within the first few seconds, playfully mingling with drums and bass to the steady build around frontman Ryan Matthews' bluesy howl. The four-piece has shared stages with Low Cut Connie, Stonefield, McKinley James, CW Stoneking, The Skulx, Cadaver Dogs and Christopher Wild.
