Angela Perley & The Howlin’ Moons

There is something magnetic, vulnerable, dangerous, and electric about Angela Perley that has been causing a lot of buzz around the artist and her band The Howlin’ Moons lately. Demure and quiet off stage, the performer usually shocks people when she tells them she is the lead singer in a band. “Putting on a show is my way of being heard, I guess,” says Perley. Growing up in small town Ohio, Perley spent years as an observant wallflower engrossing herself in poetry, literature, people, and films. “I am a storyteller at heart, always have been. I get a lot of inspiration from relationships, surroundings, poetry, and old movies. Music for me is a way to express feelings I can’t get out any other way, and when I hit the stage with the band I can turn up and let go.” Perley’s band features longtime friends Billy Zehnal and Chris Connor on bass and lead guitar and Jeff Martin on drums. Since their incarnation in 2009, the band has released four EPs (Black Cat, Yellow Moon, Fireside, and Nowhere is Now Here) and one album (Hey Kid) on Vital Music USA. The group’s latest release and debut album, Hey Kid (Jan 2014), has been catching praise in the U.S. and the UK from tastemakers including American Songwriter Magazine, Magnet Magazine, PopDose, Americana UK, Maverick Magazine and more and has been gaining steady grassroots radio play in both the U.S. and Europe. The group’s explosive single, “Hurricane” was featured on ABC during the USC vs. UCLA football game in November and their new record reached number six on the EuroAmericana charts in March of 2014. Perley has earned comparisons to everyone from Patsy Cline to Joan Jett and her range of delicate reverbladen crooners to grit- fused rock anthems have made more and more listeners take notice. The band’s live shows rumble with swaggering basslines and guitar riffs and Perley’s soulful delivery and charismatic stage presence create a memorable experience for audiences eager to listen.

Erica Blinn

ERICA BLINN CONSTRUCTS AMERICAN ROCK SONGS ONE EARNEST MELODY AT A TIME. SHE FORCES MIDWESTERN AIR THROUGH BEAT-UP HARMONICAS AND HAMMERS OUT HONEST WORDS THAT STRETCH AND TWIST THROUGH HER TUNES. SHE BENDS THE RULES OF THE BLUES AND KNOCKS DOWN THE WALLS OF POP MUSIC TO CREATE BLUE COLLAR MUSIC THAT EVERYONE CAN STAND UP FOR AND BE PROUD OF.

Lovers In The Dust features producer/engineer Mike Landolt (Maroon 5, Blues Traveler, OAR) as well as guitarist Andy Harrison, and guests Ruf Records artist Devon Allman, and First Of Three Records artist Aaron Lee Tasjan. “I like to think of this album as having a little something for everybody,” says Blinn, “It definitely has the rockers but it also has some more intimate songs as well as a couple of just plain fun ones that reach towards a more pop sound.”
