Often described as “a Midwest Roxy Music” but with more humor and rock scruff, The Suburbs have been making their unique punk-pop-art-dance records and performing off and on ever since the Minneapolis Sound heyday. Founded in 1977, The Suburbs are recognized worldwide as among the original heroes of the historic music era in Minneapolis that saw the emergence of other bands like The Suicide Commandos, Prince, The Replacements and Hüsker Dü. Still going strong, the Suburbs’ most recent album is 2017’s Hey Muse!.
Led now by original keyboardist and singer Chan Poling, original drummer Hugo Klaers, and longtime saxophonists Max Ray (also of The Wallets), they are augmented by a supergroup of newcomers: Stevie Brantseg and Jeremy Ylvisaker on guitars, Steve Price on bass, Janey Winterbauer on backup vocals, Rochelle Becker on Bari Sax and Stephen Kung on horns and keys.
Mixed by Grammy-Award Winning Engineer Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Wilco) and Ian Davenport (Band of Skulls, Supergrass), Friends and the Fakers announces the official arrival of LowRay as the Twin Cities’ next great Americana rock band.
LowRay are another in the long line of Trans-Atlantic musical partnerships. For his part in the duo singer and guitarist Dan Fowlds (Bump, Pill Hill) looked east to David Bowie, Black Sabbath and The Rolling Stones alongside his Americana influences while growing up. A musical career started in Northeast Minneapolis in the 1980s woodshedding in his parent’s basement later moved on to contest wins, touring and recording over the next 30 years. James Irving (22-20s) was very much looking back the other way from his English homeland. Son of a Jazz pianist, he was a big band drummer in his youth before eventually landing a gig with 22-20s – a deep south influenced 4 piece renowned for their fearsome, blues soaked live performances.
Annie Mack has built a reputation for writing meaningful, relate-able and inspirational songs. Live, she delivers her songs with power, soul and conviction. A dynamic vocalist and charismatic performer, she takes the audience on a journey; from velvet lined melodic depths to exciting, gritty, full bodied church hollers.
A regional powerhouse with national recognition, Annie has performed at many top festivals and venues, including The John Coltrane jazz Festival-High Point North Carolina, The Lancaster Roots and Blues Festival-Lancaster Pennsylvania, The Thunder-Bay Music Festival-Ontario Canada, The Minnesota State Fair, The Twin Cities Jazz Festival, The Bayfront Blues Festival(six years running)-Duluth MN, Buddy Guys-Chicago Illinois, The Blues City Deli – St. Louis, Missouri and The Arts Garage Del-Ray Beach Florida. Annie is a regular performer around Minnesota, appearing frequently at venues such as The Aster Cafe, Bunkers Bar and Grill, Vieux Carre, and The Dakota Jazz Club.
Several Songs from Annie’s Ep Tell It Like It Is have been receiving radio airplay on MPR/NPR The Current and Radio Heartland. Annie is proud to be a Deck Night Productions featured Artist.
