Blessed with a commanding, blast-it-to-the-back-of-the-room voice, the 21 year-old LYDIA LOVELESS was raised on a family farm in Coshocton, Ohio—a small weird town with nothing to do but make music. With a dad who owned a country music bar, Loveless often woke up with a house full of touring musicians scattered on couches and floors. When she got older, in the time-honored traditions of teenage rebellion, she turned her back on these roots, moved to Columbusand immersed herself in the punk scene, soaking up the musical and attitudinal influences of everyone from Charles Bukowski to Richard Hell to Hank III.
Indestructible Machine, Loveless’ Bloodshot debut, combines heady doses of punk rock energy and candor with the country classicism she was raised on and just can’t shake; it’s an gutsy and unvarnished mash up.
ROB MOIR, who spent five years fronting indie-punk band Dead Letter Dept, embarks on his first solo venture playing alternative-folk in the vein of Jeff Tweedy and Springsteen.
