Creativity first, logistics later. That’s the mantra of D. Clea’s creative process. They’ve never adhered to the traditional method of song writing. They focus on the bigger picture of creating their music. The result is a crisp, tight sound that is reminiscent of well known European synth pop bands like CHVRCHES. D.Clea cites a wide variety of influences from Arcade Fire to Radiohead to Paul McCartney. They put on an amazing show, so keep an eye out for their next event!

Chappell Roan is a singer and song writer from Willard, Missouri. Only 19 years old, Roan is already signed to major record label! She signed with Atlantic Records not too long ago due to her amazingly unique voice. She’s been compared to Lana Del Ray and Sia. Her songs recount her youth with big, rangy melodies that she belts out like modern arias over expertly crafted scores. Roan is going places and we can’t wait to see what she does next!


 

Jake Wesley Rogers

Featured song:You Should Know

Facebook | Spotify

Another musical prodigy from the Springfield area, Jake Wesley Rogers signed with Sony/ATV at only 18 years old. He has a big voice, often compared to John Legend, Sam Smith and James Blake. Not bad company! His new EP, Evergreen was released in 2017 and it’s caught the attention of some of the biggest acts in the nation. Rogers can change keys faster than a Murney Agent (sorry, we had to). His ability to drift in and out of falsetto is mesmerizing. He’s a spectacular talent!

Honesty is a theme in the music of Brian Bulger. He believes in reveling in the experiences we encounter in life, the good and the bad. His songs celebrate the intricacies of love, the pain of losing someone and the nostalgia of childhood. He uses his voice to accompany his acoustic guitar along with sporadic uses of violin and other instruments. Check him out for sure!


The Creek Rocks

Facebook | Spotify

Husband and wife duo Cindy Woolf and Mark Bilyeu are quickly gaining steam as one of the premier bluegrass bands in the area. Bilyeu was a founding member of the legendary Springfield band Big Smith and Cindy has been putting out albums since 2003. They can often be found at the Hotel Vandivort playing songs from their album Wolf Hunter. The album is named after two songwriters who influenced the album, John Quincy Wolf and Max Hunter who are from Cindy’s and Mark’s hometowns respectively. Seriously, go to Hotel V and see these two. You won’t regret it!
