Danielle Nicole Band

 Founding member, lead singer, and bass player of Kansas City blues-rock band Trampled Under Foot, Danielle Nicole stepped out on her own in 2015 with her debut album “Wolf Den.” In 2018, Nicole returns with a follow-up release via Concord Records.  "I grew up playing the blues, and the blues is still a big part of what I do. But now I'm reaching out more and trying different things. It still sounds like me, but I'm stretching out a lot more than I have previously."  Nicole's distinctive, inventive bass work—which resulted in her becoming the first woman to win the Blues Foundation's 2014 Blues Music Award for Best Instrumentalist, Bass—is the product of years of intensive roadwork. Although she had no experience with the instrument when she became Trampled Under Foot's bassist, now she can't imagine life without it.  "When I started doing my solo thing," she continues, "someone asked me if I was gonna hire a bass player. No, of course not! I originally picked up the bass to keep Trampled Under Foot a family band, but I really fell in love with it. It was a huge challenge, and it still is. But I really love being part of the groove and getting to sing on top of that. I had learned some stuff on acoustic guitar before I started playing bass, but I never really felt connected to it the way I do with the bass. It's empowering, walking onto a stage full of grown men who can play their asses off, and it's 'OK, I'm gonna play this bass, we're gonna do this, and it's gonna rock.'"  Rounding out her band are longtime Danielle Nicole Band guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Brandon Miller, and her older brother Kris Schenebelen [Trampled Under Foot] on drums.  "I think that it's a good time for the kind of thing I'm doing," she states. "From my years of playing blues festivals, I've seen that younger and younger audiences are getting into the blues. I think that people want to hear authentic music again."

Each Day

 Grown in the fertile soil that is Indie rock and watered with light beer, Chicago based band, Each Day, started in the summer of 2018. The band consists of Taylor Oechsel (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, main songwriter), Christopher Marszalek (drums, producer), Nick Stubblefield (lead guitar), Chris Oechsel (bass), and Alex Oechsel (vocals).Taylor had a dream of playing her songs for an audience. Although her debut performance was for an audience of not 50,000 or even 50 people, but 3…the room was left in silence. The air turned to paper and all that was written on it was, “The World Needs This.” Christopher hopped on the drums and Nick grabbed his guitar. It didn’t take long for them to pull in Taylor’s siblings, Alex and Chris, on vocals and bass.From there, over 30 songs were written in a month and the band headed for recording. Five of those songs became their first few independently released singles that cover the idea of what Each Day is--musically intriguing while lyrically raw. As far as genre goes, Each Day sits nicely somewhere between Folk and Alternative. With influences ranging from Dawes to Sublime to Phoebe Bridgers, it’s no wonder they have created their own unique sound. The still to come.Over the course of a year, the band played for hundreds of ears, started working on their new record, and created a vlog for people to get to know them better.The future holds great things for Each Day. With plenty of gigs lined up and collaborations with some of the industry’s brightest minds, the band continues to follow their mission: help the world feel a little less lonely.
