MATT DERDA & THE HIGH WATTS Matt Derda & The High Watts, a Folk Rock group from the Chicago area, combines storytelling with resonant melodies.
Blending Rock N Roll riffs with Eastern Kentucky roots, they've created a unique sound that captures the essence of Johnny Cash's Nashville and the grit of rock acts like The Replacements.
DIRTY GREEN As if from the soil itself, DIRTY GREEN emerged in 2005 and has continued to cultivate a hybrid of authentic, yet truly original music planted deep down in the ground of early American roots. DIRTY GREEN’s namesake comes from a song written by singer Aaron Mitchell which takes some digs on the lopsided and fictional attributes of the almighty dollar bill. Influenced by, but not limited to American folk, Americana, bluegrass, blues, punk, and early country, DIRTY GREEN offers a wide array of original ballads, blue-collar rants, pseudo-rockabilly romps, bar room jingles and a hearty batch of heart-wailing folk songs.
