Michigan Rattlers
Lifelong friends and deep-north natives, musical group Michigan Rattlers play heavy-
hearted folk-rock with an aching dose of Midwestern nice. Graham Young (guitar), Adam
Reed (upright bass), and Christian Wilder (piano) began writing music and performing
together in their Northern Michigan high school.

“Petoskey is a small place. Beautiful, but secluded. It’s hard to start a musical career in a
place where there are more deer than people.”

Still, they regularly played every bar, cafe, and stage in town, developing a musical
chemistry informed by the likes of AC/DC, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Seger, and
more.

After a few years apart, Reed and Young settled down in Los Angeles, recorded a short
demo, and began playing locally. The demo found its way into the hands of super-producer
Johnny K (Plain White T's, 3 Doors Down), and they cut the bulk of their first EP at NRG
Studios in just one day.

"My favorite music is recorded that way," continues Reed. "You get in a room, plug in, and
cut songs live. The energy of the recording comes directly from the physical performance,
and it puts the listener into that specific time and place."

This self-titled Michigan Rattlers EP attracted glowing reviews from No Depression,
Bluegrass Situation, B3 Science, and Rolling Stone, who named the band one of their “Ten
New Country Artists You Need To Know” in 2016. They spent the rest of that year and
much of the next touring in support of this release.

In September 2017, Pianist Christian Wilder was added to the band’s lineup. Now a trio, the
group headed into the studio to record their newest EP, Wasting the Meaning. Comprised of
three cover songs, the project was conceived as a way to explore deeper into the recording
process and pay homage to some of their favorite songwriters.

Currently, the group is hard at work recording their first full-length release. It is slated for
release in the summer of 2018.
HERESTOFIGHTIN
Many Mountains
Many Mountains is a group fronted by Katie Rose & Dustin Moran.

Katie Rose & Dustin Moran have been playing music together for over half a decade. They began their collaboration in Salt Lake City, where they met while both were working at a book store. Soon after moving to Colorado in the winter of 2010, they began playing with different bands in the Denver music scene. In early 2013, with the addition of percussionist Josh Gordon, their motivations led them to focus on creating as Many Mountains.

Using words to describe a sound is challenging, but some that might come to a listener’s mind may be: elegant, smooth, or visceral. It’s acoustic based while also holding rock & blues attributes. Moran is obviously inspired by soundscapes created using electric guitars. He compliments Katie Rose’s acoustic rhythms with melodic, textured riffs on electric guitar or piano just before locking into beautiful vocal harmony to tell stories of dreams, hard truths, self contemplation, and longing for imaginary realities.
