The Damn Choir
The Damn Choir
Hailing from Chicago, The Damn Choir aims to make music that distills complex emotions into simple, subtle compositions. Singer Gordon Robertson's voice is persuasive, unguarded, passionate, and sometimes desperate. Vulnerable and stingingly honest, his lyrics confront the darker aspects of life and love while still holding on to the hope of something better.

Robertson is backed by Katy Myers on cello, Otis "The Bearded Angel" Duffy on electric guitar, Brandon Stein on bass, and Marty Kane on drums. Together, the band produces an eclectic, surprising, folky rock that will draw you in and leave you wanting more. The songs celebrate life, from the happy moments to the sad ones.

The Damn Choir have shared the stage with acts such as Grouplove, Churchill, Hey Marseilles, and The Lumineers. The Damn Choir have toured extensively and played national fests including SXSW, Midpoint Music Festival, and NXNE. They just completed their third album at Trout Recording in Brooklyn, NY with producer Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Swans, Akron/Family, The Apples In Stereo). Fans of Frightened Rabbit, The National, and The Walkmen take note: The Damn Choir would like for you to sing along.
Paper Thick Walls
Paper Thick Walls
Paper Thick Walls presents an elegant mix of deep, reflective, and at times haunting music that is littered with small specs of colorful light. Their songs quickly caught the attention of sound engineer Mike Hagler (Neko Case, Wilco) who engineered Paper Thick Walls’ first record, to be released in early 2011 and supported with a strong US tour. This past year, Paper Thick Walls was asked to play at several taste maker music festivals including North by Northeast, South by Southwest, and CMJ Music Marathon.
