The Roseline purveys a style of rootsy, melodic Americana influenced by wide-ranging artists such as Ryan Adams, Tom Petty, Gram Parsons and Josh Ritter. The band's second release, "Lust for Luster" saw an increased role for keyboardist/percussionist Ehren Starks, who split writing duties with principal songwriter Colin Halliburton. Riding shotgun are Jeff Jackson's sublime pedal steel licks and an understated rhythm section that you'd totally let make out with your sister. The group is already hard at work on its third album after adding bassist Jenny Davidson and drummer Jim Piller to its ranks. Listen to our podcast preview of the Roseline's most recent album.
Milk Toast is composed of former members of The Volunteers. The group combines originals with covers of some of the best outlaw-country songs.
In short, a night of cosmic American music.
