“straight-ahead indie-pop glory” Substream Music Press

Hailing from Arkansas, the Arkansas Times deemed them Russellville’s purveyors of overpoweringly earnest, heart-on-sleeve indie-pop”, while Amplifier asks “Are we primed for another indie rock revolution?” and Sidelines says Deas Vail nailed it!”. Deas Vail is – Wes Blaylock – Vocals, Keys, Laura Blaylock – Keys, Synth, Wes Saunders – Drums, Andy Moore- Guitar and Justin Froning- Bass.

Following up their 2009 release Bird’s & Cages the new album is 12 songs that rise with edgy urgency and impassioned hope, filled  with sweeping melodies and textured layers of guitars and keyboards fronted by singer Wes Blaylock’s wailing vocals match only by the band’s poetic songwiting.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
