Caamp
Caamp
Started by boyhood friends Evan Westfall and Taylor Meier, CAAMP came to life in Athens, Ohio. Taylor began penning and playing original songs at coffee shops around Athens in 2013. Evan moved down a couple of years later and together in a hazy attic, enjoying light beers, they would find the heartfelt sound that became CAAMP. Since independently releasing their self-titled first record in 2016, they have climbed Spotify charts, headlined the US, purchased denim jackets and added a bass-playing buddy, Matt Vinson - who also enjoys light beers and denim. With the recent release of their sophomore album, BOYS, the Ohioan trio has high hopes and no reservations.
Parker Louis
What comes after Nirvana and the Pixies?
For a 14-year-old kid in living on Lake Erie—D’Angelo's "Voodoo", apparently.

While that album became the Sgt. Pepper of the neosoul movement, it also served as the watershed moment for the Akron-born Parker Louis, who’s started putting his stamp on the musical world around the time his hero sat back down at the keyboard. Fresh from the halls of Capital University’s Conservatory Music, Louis stitched his self- taught chops with flashes of soul and rock and roll, boosting his debut band Forest & The Evergreens into a debut that saw them make the main stage at Breakaway Music Festival and ink a deal with United Talent Agency.

Today, in addition to producing for Ohio acts like Doc Robinson and T.Wong, Louis is releasing his own material, backed by an accomplished six-piece outfit, their pair of EPs, All Good Things Pt. 1 and 2 dropping in 2018.

Louis’s once heavier guitar-driven anthems have matured into a silkier R&B, still bolstered by a voice capable of asserting a character beyond its years.

Think Donny Hathaway vocals bolstered by Buddy Guy’s steady hand—Louis can take over a room as much as he can take it into trance.
