BLOODSHOT BILL started in his hometown of Montreal around 1998, with just a guitar and a stomp board. Since then, he’s had over 30 releases throughout Europe and North America. Touring constantly, he has collaborated with such acts as THE 220.127.116.11.’s, JON SPENCER, KING KHAN, beat poet CHARLES PLYMELL, MARK SULTAN, DEKE DICKERSON, and SHANNON SHAW. Plays well with others but is known mostly for his One Man Band act. Artist JOE COLEMAN once called him “a cross betwen Jimmie Rodgers & Popeye”, and director JOHN WATERS says he’s “like Roy Orbison with a head wound”. He’s been in movies too, usually playing himself. Has won FME’s Coup De Coeur in 2007, and has more recently been a 3x-nominee for an AMERIPOLITAN award.
The Welterweights are a rock and roll band from Vermont. The union of singer songwriters Kelly Ravin and Lowell Thompson proves the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts. With the addition of Willoughby Morse on drums and songwriter Erin Cassels-Brown on bass, this band parties.
