Hard luck stories. Everybody’s got them or heard them, but it takes a special mind and wit to share them with the lyrical dexterity and aplomb that have become the hallmarks (and trademarks) of Ike Reilly’s critically-lauded records. Reilly’s a raconteur; to be sure, his songs ache and explode with a gritty realism to which everyone can relate on some level. His latest solo offering, entitled “Hard Luck Stories” - a more groove-oriented and melodic album than previous recordings - is a combination of corroded R & B, furious punk-blues, lounge-pop and classic rock, all laced with giant choruses.

Micah Walk’s approach to music is simple and to the point. Nostalgic songwriting is the first attraction to Micah Walk bringing about feelings of home and family, love and relationships, and hard-learned mistakes. Each song tends to float in your head after you first hear it, creating the sense that the song has always been there. Walk’s personal epitaphs are voiced with passionate authority that helps elevate the intensity and excitement of any performance.
