Railway Gamblers is a Cosmic Americana group from Chicago, IL. Since their formation in March 2014, the group has placed an emphasis on creating original material that blends several genres, including a vibrant folk sound, bluegrass, reverbed ambient elements, and rock and roll. The band’s ambitious mindset to consistently release new music for their audiences has been praised by fans of all ages, as the palatable and melodic Railway Gamblers sound echoes in each of their songs.

Driven by the storytelling songwriting style of front man, Brendan Folliard, the unique resonant guitar sound of Matt Fricks, and the duo rhythm section of Matt Gizyn and Sean Wilmsen, Railway Gamblers have composed and released two full-length albums (‘Heart of the Sun’ and ‘Shadow of the Moon’) between April 2015 and January 2016. The group is in the process of recording their third full-length release, ‘A Way in the Wind,’ under the guidance of recording engineer Mike Hagler (engineer on Wilco’s ‘Summerteeth’). Both the title track from ‘A Way in the Wind’ and the second single, “When the Morning Comes,” can be heard on the group’s website. The album is scheduled for release late 2016.

Railway Gamblers have gained recognition throughout the Midwest for their studio recordings and live performances. The band received attention from WXRT for their first single, “Fade Away,” and has also shared the stage with a number of national-touring acts, including Jeff Austin from Yonder Mountain String Band, Tom Hamilton’s American Babies, and The Way Down Wanderers.

The group has also used their music to support charitable efforts. Earlier in 2016, Railway Gamblers teamed up with Vinyl For A Cause to record a single set for release on a 7-inch record with proceeds benefiting the VH1 Save the Music Foundation and other organizations.

THE TOMBLANDS are a 4-piece indie rock n' roll band from the American Midwest. Formed in the college haze of Urbana-Champaign, they've since relocated to Chicago, playing everywhere from sweaty Logan Square garages to a packed Empty Bottle and sharing stages with indie heavyweights Twin Peaks, Titus Andronicus and Post Animal along the way. The Tomblands are currently playing around the Midwest to support their first professional release «Vanishing Act», recorded at Treehouse Records and available on all major digital platforms 3/31.

The Phantom Broadcast is an oddball indie rock group from Chicago, IL. A project lead by Evan Opitz, the group draws from Indie Rock and Pop music with a delicate blend of Folk, Jazz, and Classical elements. The group's influences range from Radiohead and Dirty Projectors to The Mars Volta and Queens Of The Stone Age.

Over the past 5 years they have released two full-lengths (Orphic Hymns, Until Next Time) and one ep (Sublimation Love) as a full band. They will be releasing their upcoming self-titled record this May.
