Coot Crabtree & the Roadkillers
Cootie Crabtree is an Indianapolis based singer/songwriter who rambles the county lines between Americana, Alt-Country, Rock, Strange Folk & Rootsy Blues. A little rough around the edges but pure of heart. Performing homegrown, heart-crafted originals and choice cover songs written by influential artists, there is no specific genre or pigeon hole that fits Mr. Crabtree.

First and foremost, he is a natural born lover of music, and that love is what has inspired him to share his own unique brand and voice. Coot is fortunate enough to have some very talented friends who are also musicians, songwriters and fantastic instrumentalists. This allows him to perform solid solo showcases or he can easily round up a duo, trio or a full-on band to support and enrich his sound, whatever the situation may call for. From Townes Van Zandt to Jerry Garcia...... or Hank Williams to Wilco, Coot wanders the spaces between.

Cut & dried, he is a music fan with a song & sound of his own to share

Jeremy Pinnell
Jeremy Pinnell grew up in Northern Kentucky just south of the Ohio River, where the towns are equal parts Southern hospitality, Northern attitude, and Midwestern charm. As a kid he sang in church and learned how to play the guitar with his dad, and as he got older he figured out he wasn't just carrying a tune; he could really sing. When Jeremy sang, the room got quiet. Heads turned. at 18 he left home and began writing and singing country music. His voice made him a hometown hero but his demons kept him a secret to the world.


"OH/KY" tells the story of the next 18 years of Jeremy's life, and it's a damn good story. It has all the things people love to read about. And most of all, it's a true story that's been recorded in the most honest way possible. The album was cut live over the course of three days ina recording studio located in the small river town of Covington, KY. The group of players on the album are The 55s, a honky tonk band out of The Queen City who lay the foundation so Jeremy's voice can shine and his story can come to life.


"One of my favorite new finds." – Sean Moeller / DAYTROTTER

"Kentuckian Jeremy Pinnell hits all the country-tune sweet spots. His voice is strong and a little mournful -- you can feel his ache seep through the speakers as you listen -- and the rhythm section shuffles along gently. Weepy pedal steel licks feel just right as Pinnell sings a regretful refrain of 'I did it again,' a familiar sentiment for any of us who've ever done a little backsliding." - THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION
