Chris Sterr

Chris Sterr is a multifaceted guitar player and vocalist. With roots that run as far back as the delta and Chicago blues, to the Englishman whom reinvigorated it in the 1960's, to the experimental and improvisational sounds of Jeff Beck, Bill Frisell, John Scofield, to the uncompromising pop-rock sensibility of Ryan Adams and Beck, he embraces and performs a wide array of music.

The Rhett Betty Band

Find her everywhere. If you've never heard her before, once will do it and you'll become addicted. Rhett Betty is full of influence from Artists like Bonnie Raitt, Patsy Cline, & the Beetles.

Traverse City | They hale from Chicago and call the midwest their home. Steve Leaf crafts songs of love, loss, and history while Dan Haefs and Nick Young hold down one of the finest rhythm sections of our time. Their latest release GO TO THE PINES was a venture in DIY recording and the product is a collection of five songs sometimes drenched in reverb and distortion and at others, quiet as a whisper.
