Laith, known by some as Hutch Hartford, hails from the suburban hurricane of Houston, Texas. Laith�s music is soaked with memories of Grandma and Grandpa�s bayou house, rides on a red vintage lawn mower packed with cousins, and smoky, music filled bars.
Jeremy James Meyer is an artificer of song. A songwriter’s songwriter. He crafts redemptive songs full of woody rock ‘n’ roll tones. Alive & OK comes out swingin like saloon doors on it’s opener “Brick Wall Blues”. The song features cosmic cowgirl Caitlin Jemma on vocals, and lively guitar and piano contributions from a full band. Right away you can hear Jeremy’s peripatetic personality finding a home among his Northwest counterparts. The song typifies Meyer’s positivity despite hardship, a trait that finds him welcome wherever he lands. “Cat On A Chain” finds Jeremy turning hard luck into opportunity to explore the American west, and continues the country rock streak with wailing electric. His experiences with hard work, the road, and the expansive natural vistas of the American west become his songs. “Rhinestoned Cowboy” is perhaps the best song he’s ever written about his lifestyle. Forlorn mandolin mingles with acoustic guitar and piano, and organ drone as the song trots along and Jeremy sings “Let the wind toss your hair, quit your frettin’ there child / had your fun playin’ cowboy, now come home for a while”.
