The Mallett Brothers Band featuring Jon Fishman (Phish)
The Mallett Brothers Band's busy tour schedule over the past seven years has helped them to build a dedicated fanbase across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home. With a style that can ranges from alt-country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds. Texas Hill Country Explore Magazine calls them “New England’s wildly eclectic crew of genre rebels.” Bill Copeland Music News says “Combining their authentic roots rock sound with a reflective lyrical style that perceives stories on the level of epic myth, it’s like William Faulkner has been resurrected with an electric guitar in hand..

While remaining fully independent, The Mallett Brothers Band has performed at some of the country’s top venues and festivals, including Austin Texas’s famed Continental Club; Alexandria, Virginia’s Birchmere (sharing the stage with Oklahoma red-dirt rockers The Turnpike Troubadors), New Hampshire’s Meadowbrook Pavilion (opening for The Allman Brothers Band, and again opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd); Nashville’s Bluebird; and Little Rock’s The Rev Room, to name a few. Festival appearances include FloydFest (Virginia), Hop Jam (Vermont), Nateva (Maine), The New England Country Music Festival (New Hampshire), Eastbound Throwdown (New York), and many more.

“The Falling of the Pine,” the band's most recent release, reimagines a group of 19th Century Maine folk songs collected in the 1927 book "Minstrelsy of Maine."
People's Blues Of Richmond
People's Blues Of Richmond
People's Blues of Richmond brings a carnival-like mayhem to their dark, blues-infused psychedelia. The power trio's new single "Gone Gone Gone" b/w "Outta My Mind" was produced & engineered by the highly sought-after Mark Neill, the man behind The Black Key's platinum-selling, Grammy-winning Brothers record.

"The reason we pursued Mark—we already had a pretty firm grasp on our frenetic live sound but making a song sound beautiful in the studio is a whole other animal," says singer-guitarist Tim Beavers. "Mark's sound doesn't come from a million digital studio tricks on his computer, but from a diligent set up, an intimate understanding of sound, and a belief in himself, his gear and in the bands he's recording. Working with him, we learned how to push ourselves harder than ever before."

With the anticipated new single on the way, word is starting to spread about the manic intensity of PBR's live performances as they burn up the road, sharing bills with an impressive collection of artists from JJ Grey & Mofro and Black Joe Lewis to J Roddy Walston & the Business and festival favorites Modest Mouse & Gogol Bordello.

People's Blues of Richmond co-founders and lifelong friends Beavers and Matt Volkes (bass, backing vox) began playing music together in college as a way to grieve the loss of a mutual friend. Those bleak, drug-fueled days pushed the two into an artistic bender of rock and blues that led to their 2011 debut LP, Hard-On Blues. They followed with the self-released Good Time Suicide in 2013, the album recorded on the exact same handmade '68 Flickinger board used to record T. Rex's Futuristic Dragon. Immediately following this album, People's Blues of Richmond's lineup finally solidified with the addition of friend and powerhouse drummer Neko Williams (son of Drummie Zeb of legendary reggae band The Wailers).

After years together, on the road and off, the three are more than just bandmates, they're brothers. It's a camaraderie that show in their music and beyond. "No matter what, we look out for each other," Volkes says. "If I have a sandwich, Tim and Neko get a bite, too. We're all in this together."

"The whole concept behind People's Blues of Richmond," Beavers says, "is that we all struggle, we all experience pain. Life is full of highs and lows, and we all work hard to survive. So we do the only thing we know how—we get out on the road, and we keep moving forward. We become a part of something bigger than ourselves."
