Dead Rider
Dead Rider
For the past year and a half, the band formerly known as D. Rider has been busy recording, playing shows… and adding to their lineup. In 2009 they released their darkly psychedelic debut album, Mother Of Curses, while playing shows across the country. The original lineup of Todd Rittmann (vocals, guitar, harmonica, drums), Andrea Faught (synth, vocals, horns), and Noah Tabakin (saxophone, vocals, synth) saw the addition of Theo Katsaounis on drums to complete a live act that would tour the country and gain a reputation as a challenging and entertaining powerhouse.
Redgrave
Redgrave
Redgrave is Angie Mead (guitar, vox) and Stephen Howard (drums), a rock duo from Chicago.

Mead started writing and recording Redgrave songs in marathon stretches beginning August 2010 from her home in Chicago after furniture was moved into storage and replaced with recording equipment, drums and guitars. What started out as her scratch demos recorded through the audio of the video function from an old iPod Nano has since become a distinctive, cohesive 2-piece rock outfit.

Mead sent these demos to Chicago musician Stephen Howard (Pinebender, Ambulette) after wanting him to be her drummer for nearly years. They've been playing together as Redgrave since January, 2011.

Tim Rutili of Califone/Red Red Meat fame lends his guitar prowess to the track Gone to Wither, featured on the Redgrave debut 7″ (Lovitt Records, 9-26-11 ) with art design by David Yow, produced by Stephen Howard, recorded and mixed by Greg Norman at his studio in Chicago.
