CHAD ERICKSON & THE UNTIMELY
A mainstay in the local hard rock scene, Chad Erickson has spent a decade with an eclectic array of artists, including After Later, Candlelight Vigilante, and local legend Kevin Washington.
In Moments of Motion, Guitarist/Singer Chad Erickson charted a new path through the local scene. Crafting a more personal style steeped in integrity and soul, Erickson eschewed some of the most pretentious elements of local rock in search for a more organic evolution of rock tradition. Erickson and a few regular collaborators forged ahead by taking a step back towards a more raw and unrefined sound better suited to the heartfelt vitality of songs like album standouts “Buy the Ticket” and “Until Then.” Heavy guitars and a heavier heart marked Moments of Motion as a uniquely honest work in a landscape littered with style over substance.
Later this year, Chad Erickson and The Untimely will release a new album entitled End of the Beginning, featuring a new lineup and a heavier hitting sound. Three new music videos, each with a distinct storyline and style, “Save Yourself” “Wrong F’n Man” and “An Early Grave.” Chad Erickson and The Untimely are the band to look for in 2017.
Starting out as a traditional doom band, Stone Grove is now pushing the stoner/doom genre even further, without sacrificing the heaviness or melody that people have come to expect. A dual guitar attack with Thin Lizzy-esque harmony, the tightest rhythm section this side of Clutch, and a singer that howls and wails like a combo Myrkur/Dio/Robert Smith, Stone Grove is here to make it heavy, melodic, and to the point.
