Brian K. Shaffer
,

I have been writing and recording music for roughly 20 years. I got my start as a young child listening to my mother sing and play guitar and sitting by the large console stereo listening to records with her. I then began to teach myself how to sing and became a vocalist in many a cappella groups such as the “Distinguished Gentlemen” and “Common Ground,” in which we performed across the Mid-Atlantic Region in such cities as Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Cleveland and placed 4th at the National Harmony Sweepstakes at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. We had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such legendary groups as “The Monkeys,” “The Marcells,” “The Tymes,” “The Vogues” and “The Contours.”

Spinning Jenny
,

Spinning Jenny was formed in 2011 after playing their first gig at a family reunion. Thanks to the kindness of John DiCarlo, frontman of the U.S. Kids, Spinning Jenny was then asked to open for the U.S. Kids at a benefit show held in Steubenville, Ohio. That became not only their first public gig, but the launchpad of nearly three years of playing and making music. Spinning Jenny is proud to say they are a family, with the group consisting of Dr. John Balzano and his three daughters, Julia (18), Talia (15) and Angelina (13). Dr. Balzano passed on his musicianship and love of music, particularly rock-and-roll, to his three daughters from an early age. Before long, the girls learned how to play guitar, drums, bass and keys, and that foundation led them to officially starting Spinning Jenny. During their live shows, audiences can expect to hear a wide variety of music genres — including old-school rock-and-roll, the latest hits on the radio and alternative rock hits — ensuring that there’s something for every age to enjoy. The next step for Spinning Jenny was creating their own music. They were incredibly blessed to meet Lou Contumelio and Dan Bozek of Aardvark Productions, a recording studio in Steubenville. Right away, Spinning Jenny knew they were a perfect match and began working on their debut album, “Outside The Lines,” which mixes rock, alternative rock and pop to create a unique blend of songs for everyone to enjoy. Eight songs later, they finished and released their debut album to the public. In the meantime, Spinning Jenny had filmed their first music video with Shooters Productions of Martins Ferry, Ohio, for their song, “Outside The Lines.” Like the album, the members of Spinning Jenny are very excited about their first music video and are proud to share it. No matter what the future holds for Spinning Jenny, their love of music and love for each other as a family will continue to drive them onward.

Stone Cold Killer
,

Formed in 2008, Stone Cold Killer has evolved over the years from a crude punk/metal trio into a well rounded rock 'n' roll assault with a blistering dual guitar attack reminiscent of Thin Lizzy and Guns 'n' Roses. SCK draws on many different influences from many different eras to create their unique rock 'n' roll experience.

Writing Off Tomorrow
,

Writing off Tomorrow Band Bio: A four-piece, female fronted Hard Rock/Metal band based out of Morgantown, W.Va., WOT was originally formed by Casey Ringler and Megan Edison. A seasoned guitar player with a background in metal and rock, Casey decided to pursue his musical vision by writing original guitar tracks and going in search of a vocalist that could bring those tracks to life. He later met up with Megan Edison, who was a singer, musician, and songwriter since childhood. Her dark, smooth vocals and grave lyrics complimented his original tracks and the Writing off Tomorrow songwriting duo was born. Later, the talented Joe Canfield (drums) and Bill Wiltrout (bass) were brought in to complete the Writing off Tomorrow lineup.

In 2012, Writing off Tomorrow self-released a 7-track EP called "Last Moments" containing all original tracks. Their newest original EP "Flirting with Death" was released in April, 2015. As they've toured regionally, they've opened for national acts such as Hawthorne Heights, Butcher Babies, Flaw, G Tom Mac, and Eve to Adam. They have also been positively featured on several internet and traditional radio stations, podcasts, and music blogs.

The Redlines
,

About The Redlines: When one looks at all the pieces that shape The Redlines it comes down to one thing: Rock & Roll. Hailing from just north of Pittsburgh, PA, the 4-piece band has taken personal influences and past experience to create a sound they call, American Rock & Roll, a unique blend of twangy roots rock and crunching power-pop. No strangers to the stage or studio, Brian Seese and Jason Lizzi share lead vocal and guitar duties while Tony Vinski (bass) and Mark Ciorra (drums) fill out the rhythm section to create songs with a classic feel but delivered with a fury. Their latest album, the 2016 EP “This Road Can Go On” on Swade Records, features the single “County Road”, heard on Pittsburgh’s WXDX (105.9 The X), Butler’s WLER (97.7), Youngstown, Ohio’s WNCD (93.3 The Wolf), and is in the regular rotation of Tri Lakes Radio out of Colorado Springs, CO.

Paul Lee Kupfer
,

Paul Lee Kupfer is from a lot of different places—a West Virginia native, he lived in Pennsylvania, California, and Montana before settling in Knoxville. When he’s not on the road as a solo singer-songwriter, Kupfer is one-third of the Bus Driver Tour, with fellow country-folkies Ian Thomas and Danny Freund. (Thomas is also based in Knoxville; Freund lives in Montana.) It’s an itinerant life for an itinerant musician.

Somewhere along the way, though, Kupfer managed to stay in one place long enough to record Where the Wind Goes, his debut solo album. It’s a collection of unreconstructed folk in the style of early Bob Dylan, John Prine, and Arlo Guthrie, recorded at Wild Chorus Studio here in Knoxville with Jamie Cook, Robert Richards, Evie Andrus, and Josh Oliver. The songs range from quiet melancholy (“Highway to the Coast”) to shuffling blues (“Riverbank Blues”) and vibrant, fiddle-fueled road anthems (“Where the Wind Goes”).
