The Lonely Biscuits
The Lonely Biscuits
The Lonely Biscuits, formerly known as Gravy and the Biscuits have been together since September of 2011. Founding members Grady Wenrich and Sam Gidley were random roommates at Belmont University, in Nashville, where they started jamming and making music out of their dorm room. John Paterini, current lead singer of the band came into the picture in September after hearing some of their tunes from his dorm room across the hall. Then, two months later, Nick Byrd joined the band as an official biscuit playing bass guitar. Blending soul, funk, and pop with rap; The Lonely Biscuits have created a unique sound that has appealed to a wide array of people. The Lonely Biscuits have toured the country playing at universities, festivals, and clubs, gaining dedicated fans everywhere they go. The band was recently named mtvU's first ever "College Artist of The Year", and traveled to Austin, TX, to perform at the mtvU Woodies Festival at SXSW. The band has independently released three EPs. Their latest EP "A Girl Named Destiny", charted on Billboard's Regional Heatseekers Chart, and gained national coverage from numerous notable music blogs and magazines. The Lonely Biscuits continue to write, record, and perform new music that can relate with anyone, and they will continue to share it with as many people as possible.

You can't fully appreciate the long history of recorded music without taking the time to look at the breakups. Whether it's for good or for the season, Okey Dokey is the product of that natural reformation that occurs when musicians part ways. Fronted by visual artist Aaron Martin and The Weeks' guitarist Johny Fisher, these two former band mates made the rare decision to revisit creating music together in Fisher's small cabin about 20 miles outside of Nashville, TN. What they created was a well blended mix of everything they loved about classic Motown combined with a dash of their psychedelic storytelling roots. With the record and touring band including a revolving group of musicians from bands such as The Weeks, The Rayland Baxter Band, Desert Noises, Sol Cat, Ron Gallo, Morning Teleportation and Kansas Bible Company, their upcoming debut album 'Love You, Mean It' has a little bit of treasure for every type of listener. Okey Dokey’s premier album “Love You, Mean It” will be released in Europe on February 27th via EXAG’ Records. The group will be touring regionally in support of new album, as well as appearances at SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX and a European tour starting in September.
