their noses to the grindstone and put together an
album of insightful, clever, honest and meaningful
songs that are rooted in folkrock and venture into
the indie rock and country spectrums. The album
‘American Romance’ is sure to captivate listeners by
ushering them into unfamiliar lyrical realms and at
the same time reminding them of home. C.K. & The
Rising Tide is a band that brings a unique vision
and feel to their genre.

The Prairie Fires
Rock & Roll had to die. It was the only way to bring it back to
life. Such is the feeling of All New Kinds of Strange, the debut
album from Chicago’s newest Americana rock band: The Prairie Fires.
Stripping Rock & Roll to it's essential form, The record isn’t
afraid to dip into multiple genres to reshape the sounds of rock.
What is the sound of rocks future? It’s clear the band is influenced
by a variety of musicians from the midwest and beyond, blending the
soundscapes of Tom Petty and John Mellencamp with the pop
songwriting sensibilities of 90s groups like Gin Blossoms and The
Wallflowers, all of which are heavily dosed with the distinctive
grooves and licks of Chicago blues. This is a band that appreciates
rock in the broadest sense of the word, and has the skills and
sounds to bring it into tomorrow.
