Founding Band members being related as in first cousin found that they were both in situation where at a young age they were both simultaneously propositioned by older well positioned women who at the time could have been their mothers. Food for Cougars. With influences ranging from the likes of Johnny Cash, “60s-era folk courtesy Bob Dylan” by Rodney Carmichael of Creative Loafing, to modern masters such as Two Chains and Joy Division, this determined pair manufactures an innovative vibe that is sure to turn some heads.

Max Luger and Jay Calhoun have bounced around the nation on their pursuit of musical expression. From a beautiful 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, the duo ROCKS with any eager audience they encounter. Their traveling concert, which is complete with a PA system, a fog blower, and a full light show, roars town to town.

Recently Food for Cougars has recently expanded to a four person group with the addition of Thea Jones. VThea Jones, a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist brings a fresh energy and rounds out the band with vocals that are reminiscent of the flower power 60s era.

Together, they are Food for Cougars.

Desert Inspired Gutter Folk cocooned in Atlanta, Ga. Gas Hound is a primordial aural cataclysm developed by songwriter Benjamin J. Davidow over the past four years. With the help of South-Eastern lyricist, multi-instrumentalist, and composer Ethan Fogus alongside Slow Parade's chieftain and percussive commandant Mathew J. Pendrick, Davidow developed a syndicate of sonic cosmonauts sworn to explore the outer, inner, and nostalgic regions of raw grit.

The Gas Hound EP is set for Release in May 2015 and will be followed by a full length album in 2016 with the help of Bird House Studios' engineer Damon Moon. The project will be presented under the ambitious umbrella of Tooth Monster Records.

The Brookses are Meg Brooks and Jim Brooks — a daughter/father duo whose love of traditional folk, country and blues shines through in their interpretation of classic songs as well as well-crafted originals. Their tight harmonies and ringing guitar lines evoke the sound of Johnny and June, Gram and Emmy Lou, and the Everly Brothers. Based in Atlanta, they play both as a duo and with a full band.
