THE SILENT COMEDY
Rough-hewn, expansive American rock & roll, the music of The Silent Comedy channels the blues, Honky- Tonk, and punk into a euphoric declaration that when trouble arises, we lift our voices high. Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman spent their formative years traveling the world before settling in California. In search of catharsis, the teens found solace in songwriting. Years of touring followed, performing with Dave Matthews, Mumford and Sons, and Vampire Weekend, and at Bonnaroo, Kaaboo and more.
The band recorded and self-released a series of albums, selling hundreds of thousands and streaming millions. Still, they needed to capture the magic of their live show. Work with Grammy-nominated producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith led to a body of work that includes the EP Friends Divide and LP Enemies Multiply.
After a hiatus, they are ready once again to bring their medicine to the masses. The band’s new release is an anthemic reinterpretation of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain”. “Fleetwood Mac was in a period of turmoil when they recorded the original,” explains Joshua. “this seems like a fitting tribute in a strange way.” Their music is a source of comfort in the face of uncertainty and despair. “If our music continues to have that effect on anyone at all, then we will be here, making more of it” says Joshua.

Get Tuned + Stay Tuned
Cosmic Country band LYON$ thrives on breaking boundaries, dialing up soul and twang for a raucous sound all their own. With a wicked psychedelic streak in their back pocket, they draw as much inspiration from frontman Trey Lyons’ East Tupelo, Mississippi roots as their current big city home, Chicago. The result is Cosmic Country at its finest, affirmative, transcendent, and free. Tune in and tune out for a while.
