Chicago songwriter Cameron McGill has carved out a place for himself through years of relentless touring and a growing list of self-released albums. His sixth, Gallows Etiquette, was released this past October, and finds McGill in the company of a new band. The lineup further refines McGill’s version of baroque soul—a marriage of the American songbook stylings of Randy Newman & Harry Nilsson with a rhythm section drawing on the Stax Records catalog. McGill seems more at home on Gallows, where storytelling and dreaming and conversation find confluence in poetry and song.

Without releasing an album, 23-year-old Tom Schraeder garnered critical praise from his live performance at Lollapalooza, CMJ, and from demos which began circulating the States. After the positive response, Schraeder booked his third headlining show and released the compilation of demos to a sold out Chicago crowd. The EP was titled, "The Door, The Gutter, The Grave" because those are the three things Schraeder continues to have one foot in. Chosen as one of the Onion A.V. Club's "Top 5 Artists to Watch in 2008," his songwriting has been called, "earnest" and "adventurous" by CMJ.com. It inspired Chicago Magazine's Noah Isackson to declare, "Tom Schraeder [is] on the brink of stardom," and prompted Jim Derogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times to write, "sophisticated...a real talent."
