OH JEREMIAH (Hattiesburg, MS)
Oh Jeremiah is the singer/songwriter duo made up of Jeremiah Stricklin and his wife Erin. Started in south Mississippi and currently residing in Athens, GA, the couple draws its inspiration from the storytelling nature of their home state, echoing the likes of Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. Oh Jeremiah is known for its harmonies in the style of early Damien Rice and their peculiar onstage banter. Their debut album, the Other End of Passing Time, is available now.
FRANKIE BOOTS (New Orleans / California)
Frankie Boots And The County Line are a folk-rock/Americana band roaring out of the San Francisco Bay Area with a penchant for painting vivid images of late nights, lost love, and the grittier side of life. Towards the end of the last decade Frank gave up a promising career in the illustrious world of bartending to pursue a life of even longer nights and shorter tempers in the music industry. The cosmos, in their infinite wisdom, soon sent him The County Line and their visceral sound sprung from a primordial soup of horns, pedal steel guitar, banjo, mandolin, keys, guitars, bass, and drums. Whether it be country, rock, blues, gospel, bluegrass, or any other true form of great American music, the band throws it all into the recipe for a dish that’s always served hot. Frankie Boots And The County Line’s captivating live performances keep a crowd jumping and their magnetic songs earned them the North Bay Bohemian’s award for best Country/Americana band in the Bay Area two years in a row. They were also recently named «Best Band» in the the Bay Area for 2016 by the loyal readership of the North Bay Bohemian.
Frankie Boots And The County Line released their self-titled debut album in Fall of 2013 to much acclaim and the highly anticipated follow up, «Leave The Light On», finds a greatly expanded fan base on May 17th, 2016.
The band has performed from coast to coast and continues to tour rigorously while playing dates at home in the San Francisco Bay Area. They played at the first annual Bottlerock Festival in 2013 with giants such as The Avett Brothers, The Black Keys, and many more. FBCL looks forward to joining this summer's Kate Wolf Music Festival in Northern California as well.
Frankie Boots And The County Line have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the industry including Robert Earl Keen, Lukas Nelson And The Promise Of The Real, Leon Russell, Pokey LaFarge, The Brothers Comatose, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Drag The River and more.
