Formed in 2014, The Two Tracks are based out of Sheridan, Wyoming, at the foot of the Bighorn Mountains.   From rock’n roll to country, from bluegrass to folk, the music is expertly crafted, addictive Americana. Their harmony rich songs are often cello-infused with a high energy groove.  Throw in life on the high plains and a penchant for lost love story telling.

The group's first album (self-titled) was voted #1 Album in Wyoming by Wy- NPR.  It features original tracks by Julie Szewc on guitar/vocals. Joining her are David Huebner on cello, electric guitar, and vocals, Fred Serna on drums/percussion, and Russell Smith on upright bass.  Guests on the album include legendary Nashville pedal steel guitarist Bruce Bouton (Garth Brooks) 

"Their eponymous debut album finds them creating an instant connection... the sprightly, spunky “Old Victrola,” the good natured “Bird’s Eye View” and the lively take on the traditional standard “Wayfaring Stranger” finds them accelerating the energy...in truth there’s not a single offering here that doesn’t engage the listener practically from the get go." - No Depression

They have spent many a day on the road since the debut album release in Spring 2016, and were recently back in the studio to record their second album with producer Will Kimbrough at The Butcher Shoppe studio in Nashville. Look for the new album Spring 2017!

"The Two Tracks record rural warmth... infusing their tunes with a feel for the open spaces of The West.” - The Alternate Root

Led by guitarist/vocalist Jessica Boudreaux, the Cannibals initially cut their teeth on the local circuit, sharing the stage and receiving encouragement from peers such as The Thermals. Along the way, they released a pair of fantastic full­ lengths ­­ 2013’s No Makeup and 2015’s Show Us Your Mind — on their own label, New Moss Records. Show Us Your Mind was recorded by legendary NW engineer Larry Crane and was recently named one of the best of 2015 by Sound Opinions co­host Jim DeRogatis. The band has since spent an unhealthy amount of time on the road, earning accolades and adding plenty of fresh converts to their highly­charged, no frills attack.

It seems only logical that when the band decided to sign to a label, they chose a label like Kill Rock Stars, which has a long history of putting out fearless, female­led bands like Bikini Kill and Sleater­Kinney. “Summer Cannibals take us back to our roots,” says KRS President Portia Sabin. “Jessica is a great songwriter and the band is super exciting live, it’s a perfect fit.”

The new album Full Of It is the band’s defining statement to date. Recorded at the amazing analog recording studio The Dock with producer Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, Wild Flag), the LP is one of those massive leaps forward that every band hopes to achieve at least once in their career. Aided by a new powerhouse rhythm section of drummer Devon Shirley and bassist Jenny Logan, the 11 songs spark with that perfect mix of snotty attitude, unbounded energy, and window rattling volume.

For their part, the four musicians keep their collective foot on the gas pedal, roaring through tunes like the jagged, screaming title track and the shouting, fist pumping drive of “Just A Little Bit.” But they’re savvy and talented enough to ease up when it counts. Just listen for those sweet melodies carrying “Say My Name” along or the pair of simmering tunes that close out the album: “Fall In” and “Simple Life.” The whole thing is done and dusted in about 35 minutes. Just enough time to catch your breath and drop the needle on side A again.

 With their roots submerged in the thick buttery mud of traditional bluegrass, The Lil’ Smokies have sonically blossomed into a leading player in the progressive acoustic sphere, creating a new and wholly unique, melody driven sound of their own. The quintet, from Missoula, MT, has been hard at work, writing, touring and playing to an ever-growing fan base for the past 6 years. The fruits of their labor recently culminating with wins at the 2016 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Momentum Award for Best Band and at the 2015 Telluride Bluegrass festival band competition.  In 2013 the band also won The Northwest String Summit Band Competition. With a unique blend of traditional bluegrass, newgrass, innumerable unique originals, sheer raw energy, and exquisite musicianship, The Lil’ Smokies weave seamlessly through genres, leaving behind melodies you’ll be singing to yourself for days and a jaw you’ll have to pick up off the floor. This five-piece bluegrass ensemble features Andy Dunnigan (dobro), Scott Parker (upright bass), Matt Cornette (banjo), Jake Simpson (fiddle) and Matt Rieger (guitar).
