Daniel Knox
Daniel Knox
With a baritone as dynamic as it is indestructible, Daniel Knox narrates compositions with a perverse and sometimes comical wit, guiding the listener through sprawling worlds that exist just out of frame.

His work has inspired a diverse cast of collaborators that lie inside and outside his realm of alternative Americana, such as Jarvis Cocker, Thor Harris (Swans, Freakwater), and The Handsome Family with recent performances that include the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Andrew Bird, and Swans.

On his most recent self-titled effort (Carrot Top 2016), he guides the listener through narratives of time travel, middle American abandon, forgotten landscapes, and the people who live there. Knox lives and works in Chicago.

“Sly and refreshingly mean-spirited”
-TimeOut NY

"Possesses a ferocious talent that lures you deep into his twisted but fascinating world"
-BlackBook

"An achingly lovely exercise in vintage, chrome-plated, wood-paneled Americana | 8/10"
- UNCUT
Mooner
Mooner
Mooner plays power-pop for the 21st century, melding their signature double lead-guitar attack with deceptively simple pop songwriting that pays homage to Elvis Costello, Big Star and Warren Zevon. The band has been featured on the airwaves via Chicago’s WGN and WXRT, where they were nominated for Best Local Artist. They have collaborated on compilations with Kimya Dawson, shared the stage with The Flamin’ Groovies and James McCartney and played to fans at hallowed Chicago venues like Lincoln Hall, as well as others across the Midwest.

Best of 2015
- WXRT, Chicago, IL

"Repeated listenings revealed a lot more including folk rock ala the Byrds and British Invasion era Searchers and even a smattering of Americana stylings that aren’t far removed from Jeff Tweedy‘s best work."
- Richard Milne, WXRT

“Fully digging this.”
- John Darnielle, The Mountain Goats
