The Hipnecks

Columbia, MO

"Take it from the name, The HipNecks, which combines the words “Hippie” and “Redneck” as affectionately as it unites trucker hats and flip-flops.  Within that sentiment lays a genre-bending approach to making music."

The Many Colored Death

Alternative Rock
Columbia, MO

With influences ranging from Sabbath and King's X to Muse and RATM, they've forged a sound uniquely theirs, while not wholly unfamiliar.

We Live In Public

Columbia, MO

This four piece from Columbia, MO changes between genres as quickly and as seamlessly as the weather in their home state.

Mary and the Giant

Colonial Pop
Columbia, MO

Mary and the Giant is the sound of the Midwest. Melodic, tight, well-polished, and just a bit rowdy. Their self-proclaimed "Colonial Pop" sound is a little bit indie, a little bit bluegrass, a lot pop, and all rock.

Stingrays

Columbia, MO

Although influences are not hidden by the group, Stingrays remain a project in carving out a style they can call their own, with pop-sensible melodies and classic guitar work riding over imaginative drumming.

The Late Night Benedictions

Columbia, MO

Think Flying Burrito Brothers, fronted by Sam Cooke. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well, that’s not quite what they sound like so far, but if someone wants to make the comparison, they won’t complain.
