In 2009, Ed Schrader started his solo career playing shows with just himself and a drum. He released a solo album, The Choir Inside, in which all the songs had just Schrader’s voice and a floor tom in them. After touring for a while on his own in 2010, Ed asked Devlin Rice to join him. Now, Ed plays drums and Devlin plays bass.
In 2012, Jazz Mind was released on Load Records and Upset the Rhythm. Joe Hemmerling from Tiny Mix Tapes called it “one of the oddest albums to land on my desk this year” and “a tasty little album.” The duo went on the “Because Home Sucks, and Everywhere Else Is the Same” a.k.a. “Jazz Mind Nation” tour with Lord Grunge, Psychedelic Horseshit, Wet Hair and Bubbly Mommy Gun in support ofJazz Mind.

In late 2012, Wild Ones was on the verge of collapse. Guitarist Clayton Knapp had blown out an eardrum, the band’s original drummer left the group and his replacement, Seve Sheldon, was in the hospital with a punctured lung, practicing songs on a drum pad with a tube sticking out of his chest. The band’s members had funneled all of their money into a debut record, Keep It Safe, that had taken a year to write and nine months to record and mix. Fans and followers began to wonder if that record would ever see the light of day. It was make-or-break time. Wild Ones made. Instead of folding in the face of financial drama, injuries and personnel changes, Wild Ones took a deep breath and adjusted to its new surroundings. This band is used to adjusting. Since its formation in 2010, Wild Ones has insisted on operating as a DIY collective. Read more

The 2014 John Hartford Memorial Festival (JHMF) Songwriting Contest has begun accepting entries, marking the start of its second year inspiring songwriters to go where they haven’t gone before. The songwriting contest is a little different than most, as it takes part in ensuring the legacy of John Hartford continues and thrives. Contest winners are awarded with a main stage performance and free 3-day festival ticket.
Many great songwriters have come and gone, but few have been groundbreaking trendsetters. John Hartford started a movement in music and this festival is a great example of the wake that has spread across the vast ocean of what we have come to call Americana music. The bands selected to perform at JHMF are encouraged to play a Hartford song or talk about his inspiration on them. Read more
