Columbus, Ohio trio Caamp formed when Taylor Meier and Evan Westfall met and bonded over a shared love of music and a shared love of home, specifically the inspiration they culled from the Midwest lives they grew up in. The two began writing and performing and quickly grew a rabid fan base. A self-titled 2016 debut album took flight, quickly gaining over 52 million streams, with a staggering 25 million streams for their single “Vagabond” alone. The band’s fan base is no fluke, Caamp’s live shows are transcendent, communal experiences and they’ll take their show to new places throughout 2019. Evan and Taylor brought on a third member and longtime friend, Matt Vinson, to join on bass just before recording their newest album By and By, out July 26th on Mom + Pop Records.By and By broadens Caamp’s repertoire without sacrificing the intimate feel of their early work.

Parker Louis

What comes after Nirvana and the Pixies? For a 14-year-old kid in living on Lake Erie—D’Angelo's "Voodoo", apparently.  While that album became the Sgt. Pepper of the neosoul movement, it also served as the watershed moment for the Akron-born Parker Louis, who’s started putting his stamp on the musical world around the time his hero sat back down at the keyboard. Fresh from the halls of Capital University’s Conservatory Music, Louis stitched his selftaught chops with flashes of soul and rock and roll, boosting his debut band Forest & The Evergreens into a debut that saw them make the main stage at Breakaway Music Festival and ink a deal with United Talent Agency. Today, in addition to producing for Ohio acts like Doc Robinson and T.Wong, Louis is releasing his own material, backed by an accomplished six-piece outfit, their pair of EPs, All Good Things Pt. 1 and 2 dropping in 2018. Louis’s once heavier guitar-driven anthems have matured into a silkier R&B, still bolstered by a voice capable of asserting a character beyond its years. Think Donny Hathaway vocals bolstered by Buddy Guy’s steady hand—Louis can take over a room as much as he can take it into trance.
