Cyber Camel

Cyber Camel

Born in the land of the arrowhead, Niko Daoussis (Shook Twins, John Craigie) has cultivated a unique blend of acoustic and electric music. His newest project, Cyber Camel, is the ultimate one-man-band blending raw blues sounds with modern dance, booty shakin' beats. Using effect pedals, drum machines and loopers combined with playing string instruments, percussion and keys- puts out the sounds band from only one man.



Bart Budwig

Bart Budwig

Bart Budwig grew up on the Idaho Palouse, with a pawn shop trumpet and a heart as big as a skyscraper - if skyscrapers knew how to be humble. Bart learned melody from classic jazz charts and found that fault-lines in big hearts create drifting continents, cut new oceans and forge new mountains. Eventually, everyone close to him disappeared, whether to death or Texas, and it was from Texas that he got a letter from Waylon Jennings inviting him to pick up a guitar and a pen.

Budwig doesn't write the big songs. He writes songs about places between the hills, in the draws and hidden canyons where truth is a little more in focus, stories take their time being told, heartbreak is a place of deep reflection, and melodies don't have to wear rhinestone suits or drive shiny, new cars to be beautiful.

In 2016, Bart Budwig played over 150 out-of-town shows and has shared the stage with Blind Pilot, Joseph, Alan Stone, Joe Pug, Justin Townes Earle, Damien Jurado, Mason Jennings and many more. He will be releasing his 5th full-length album Paint by Numbers Jesus on April 1st, 2017, a swamp-country concept record pulling from grooves of Motown and the American deep south in the 60s and 70s.
