Lincoln Durham
Armed with old bastardized mid-century guitars, hand-me-down fiddles and banjos, home-made contraptions with just enough tension on a string to be considered an instrument and any random percussive item he can get his hands or feet on, Lincoln Durham is a Obnoxious Southern-Gothic-Gospel-Revival-Punk One-Man-Band with a heavy amped edge, preaching the gospel of some new kind of depraved music. With driving guttural beats backboning various growling stringed instruments Lincoln gives birth to a sound that transcends genres with his dark, poetic and raw writing style telling tales that E.A. Poe would have been proud of.

Lincoln's musical odyssey began when his grandpa, Charlie, and dad, Ed, put a fiddle in his hands at age 4. He would grow into an accomplished fiddle player winning the Youth Fiddle Championship at age 10. Lincoln afterward followed the path so many musicians have, finding his vice in the seductive, siren-like callings of the electric guitar. Or, in Lincoln's case, the acoustic slide guitar with gnarly pickups haphazardly screwed into it.

Lincoln's true biography is in his live show. The passion in his sweat drenched, electrifyingly mesmerizing one-man-band show draws you in to feel every scar and drop of blood in his painfully intimate lyrics. It takes something beautifully "off" to get on stage with just hands and feet for a band, driven by a howling voice, and morbidly preach a music that harkens back to the old blues masters, Son House and Fred McDowell, infused with the edge and angst of Punk and darkened from the bad influences of Tom Waits and Nick Cave.
Onward, ETC.
Onward, etc. is a musical project put together by Rosco Wuestewald. Leaving the midwest at an early age, he started a journey traveling around the world which has evolved into a project known as Onward, etc. The idea behind the project is to form groups of musicians all around the country so as to be able to tour and have each show be completely unique based on the different band members and the location of the stage. So far the journey has been a complete success, forming pieces of Onward, etc. in places such as Alaska, The Dakotas, Montana, Minnesota, New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Hawaii. The Onward, etc. project has developed a great sound being influenced by outstanding musicians including Mumford & Sons, Bon Iver, Blind Pilot, Sea Wolf, The Devil Makes Three, Delta Sprirt & many more, taking Indie/Rowdy Folk to another level. Rosco has shared the stage of music with some fantastic acts such as Luba Davorak, Larry Oakes, Michael Dooley, The Art Of Whimsey and many more. Onward, etc. is currently in the process of choosing the band members from pieces of Onward, etc. established in the Midwest, Alaska and Hawaii for their first tour this fall in the wild west. To get a feel of Onward, etc.'s musical awesomeness, check out Rosco's self titled album, "Rosco Wuestewald - The Secrets Of Marindahl" on iTunes.
