The Steel Wheels have spent almost twenty years writing, recording, and touring, while honing their evolving brand of American roots music. Through the years, The Steel Wheels have drawn on both traditional form and modern sounds to capture the beauty in all of life’s varied trials and triumphs. Their new album, Sideways, which releases on February 9, 2024, via Big Ring Records, is a meditation on resilience and survival. Throughout Sideways, we hear and see the image of resilience, resolve, and strength despite the trials. We are reminded that we are all still here… pushed and bent by the wind, yes, but still standing. As the band’s lead singer, Trent Wagler says, “It’s beautiful and crushing to be alive sometimes. We aren’t here to sing songs that only cut one way—but if they do, they’ll cut sideways.” The Steel Wheels are founders and hosts of The Red Wing Roots Music Festival, a beloved staple of the Shenandoah Valley. 

Lindsay Lou's new album Queen of Time (released September 29, 2023, from Kill Rock Stars) explores the singer-songwriter’s spiritual journey of self-knowledge and healing following the loss of her grandmother, the end of her marriage, and the overwhelming turmoil of COVID lockdowns. Lou captures a new arc of haloed beauty, becoming unattainable in her own way—a vibrant, powerful woman who can share herself with the world, and yet define a mystic sense of inner self as well. The Nashville-based artist, named among NPR’s “12 Best Live Performances” in 2015, has long been beloved as a live performer.
