The Company Stores are a modern rock band from Charleston, WV. Described by Skope Magazine as being led by “Casey Litz’s soulful, sultry vocals, a funky horn section, and a gritty backbeat”, the band “links Appalachian folk influences with a progressive, electronic sound that isn’t afraid to break boundaries” and “explores the vastness of rock and all it has to offer.” The band is set to release their first single from their 3rd full length album in Nov 2019, working with record producer Robert Mercurio (The Revivalists, Trombone Shorty), bass player for New Orleans funk legends, Galactic.
Tropidelic, the six-piece band from Cleveland, Ohio may be far from any tropical islands, but that doesn’t stop them from dishing out an interesting mix of reggae, hip-hop and high energy funk for audiences across the country. Tropidelic has a deep and widespread appreciation for music that can be heard in each note. Some of the members are hip-hop heads, while others are into metal, funk or reggae. Each of these genres lends something to their collective sound. “We pride ourselves in being original in our musicality and personality as a band,” says Roads, “but also in not taking ourselves so seriously that it ruins the fun.”
