SARAH SHOOK & THE DISARMERS

Sarah Shook and the Disarmers:

It’s obvious listening to Sarah Shook and the Disarmers’ clear-eyed, biting, and unafraid songs that integrity is the most important thing to the Chapel Hill, North Carolina, country-punk outfit.
“A lot of artists are in this industry for fame, recognition, and money but those things don’t mean anything to me,” says bandleader River Shook. “Songwriting is it for me. It’s the only real healthy coping mechanism I’ve ever had. It’s life-saving. I don’t care about any superficial things when I’m making a record.” On their resonant fourth album Revelations, produced by Shook and out March 29 via Thirty Tigers, these raw and resilient tracks come first. Throughout, Shook’s deft storytelling documents regular people getting by and keeping on, all presented without filter or pretension. IG: @sarahshooksdisarmers

Andrew Weiss and Friends:

Andrew Weiss and Friends blend anthemic road rock, booming pop, and poetic Americana across acclaimed LPs, with sold-out shows and performances alongside Counting Crows and Rob Thomas. Singer-songwriter Andrew Weiss crafts intimate, character-driven stories reminiscent of Dawes and Tom Petty. Self-taught from age seven, Weiss’s journey, influenced by The Beatles, led to solo projects before forming the band. Since 2018, they’ve released four LPs, three EPs, and singles, performing at notable festivals and venues. Their music, described as “Power Pop-icana,” celebrates camaraderie and serves as a healing agent in these modern times. IG: @andrewweissmusic
