  • Greensky Bluegrass

    Greensky Bluegrass

    Americana/Bluegrass/Rock

    If you’re familiar with bluegrass music, then you’re tuned in to some of what Greensky Bluegrass does. They’re also known to throw a great party, rock n roll, and (if the critics are to be believed) they have great songs. They are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry (Douglas or Garcia) would love? Distortion Pedals? Grit and attitude from a whiskey soaked card game? Indeed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

  • The Cerny Brothers

    The Cerny Brothers

    The Cerny Brothers (pronounced SERN-IE) have found a home for their Midwest roots in the heart of Los Angeles. The brothers collaborated with producer, Matt Linesch (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), to make a rambunctious and romantic record for a definably American folk/rock genre. The self-titled nine-track album, The Cerny Brothers, was recorded in Ojai, CA at the Ed Sharpe studio. The album is loaded with emotions that run deep through the musical stories of home, growing up and family. The Cerny Brothers are: Robert Cerny – lead vocals, banjo, Scott Cerny – vocals, guitar, Cody Fontes – drums. Playing music together as little brothers, Robert and Scott grew up in rural Illinois in the small town of Sherrard. When they were young they fought over who got the Superman pj’s and who got Batman, chased each other through the cornfields in their backyard and helped their dad build the family house. Family, American pride and Midwest roots inspire a lot of their writing. At an early age, they started playing piano and quickly picked up the acoustic guitar. When they were 13 years old they recorded their first original EP and sold cassette tapes at school for $5. Sticking together, the brothers went to college in Illinois to study film, vocal performance and music composition. Eventually, Robert picked up a banjo and Scott the harmonica, rooting the band’s Americana sound. Cody grew up in the small farming community of Turlock, CA. When he was 10 years old, he put down his violin when he found his dad’s drumsticks in the closet. His dad was quick to equip him to pursue his dream of being a drummer. When he was 13 years old he came home to find his first real drum kit. Shortly after graduating college, he left for Los Angeles to play music. 
     
    Before moving to Los Angeles, Robert and Scott recorded their debut album, Dream, in Illinois with The Giving Tree Band backing the then duo. After releasing Dream in 2011, Robert and Scott kept writing incessantly in Los Angeles. In 2012, they picked up Cody transforming the duo into the drum-driven Americana rock band they are today. The release of The Cerny Brothers marks their first album as a full band since leaving Illinois. The boys spend most of their day under the gymnasium floor of the converted basement of their Los Angeles church hearing the pounding of basketballs. The underground studio is where the guys rehearse, write and bring their songs to life and, ultimately, to new fans all over California. They have played over 100 shows in the Los Angeles area from dive bars to the Hotel Café, the Mint, the Bootleg, the Echo and the Troubadour. They’ve been featured on Daytrotter.com, LA’s KXLU and are regulars on Static Beach Radio.
