DeeOhGee is the wild conglomeration of brothers who scrape their inspiration from the talents of American music. The beat, the groove, the melody, are the holy trinity that guide this band. With togetherness as the goal they travel, sing, give and gather for the betterment of their fellow man. The origins of American music are built from the exact same elements that make our modern music quicken our current pulses. This is where DeeOhGee has made their home, pulling from acoustic roots to amplified chaos, they encompass the human condition within their songs. Without fear of being multi-dimensional, Zack Murphy pushes his heavy beat and nuanced percussion to new grounds. Matthew Paige heaves his weight into riffs and dissonance that lands in a beautiful cadence. And Dylan Whitlow brilliantly lends his gift of bass virtuosity to the heat that melts it all together. With plans to collaborate and participate in the vast world of music for as long as life allows, the DeeOhGee contribution is one of honesty and free thinking feels cranked up for those ready for liberation.
“Uncle sexy is a rock and roll, beer chuggin outlaw machine that sometimes feels like it will take you through a brick wall and other times feels like it will hold you until you fall asleep and then gently tuck you in to bed. Its a blend of blues, country, rock and soul that is best described by a quote from the late great Billy Joel. “Its all rock and roll to me” No tricks. No BS. These boys are livin it. Go see them live, we beg you.” ~ Rolling Stone
Similar to the dichotomous nature of their name, blues/psych rock foursome Daisychain produces a sound that is a beautiful series of contradictions: ambiguous, yet easily comprehensible; brutally honest while also soothing; rooted in classic rock and still trippy enough to please the ears of 21st century listeners. The female-fronted band from Chicago, who are also the best of friends, use music as a tool to connect and most importantly, channel feelings around the craziness of modern life. Moody, soulful, and sultry, Daisychain’s classic rock ‘n’ roll sound is one that a wide variety will relate to because it is based around universal emotions.
UMBRA AND THE VOLCAN SIEGE
