Wonky Tonk + Community Center w/ Breathing Kansas

Wonky Tonk, often compared to Jenny Lewis or Iris Dement, sings in a slightly naive country form with hints of Modest Mouse, The Pixies and Loretta Lynn.

Community Center is a chamber rock band from Baltimore, MD. Their live show has been winning over diverse audiences with storytelling songwriting and a live set that features saxophone, accordion, cello, clarinet, violin, and highly-arranged vocals.

Breathing Kansas, a small trio out of Northeast Georgia, is an equal balance of hair and talent with influences such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Whitesnake, Jimi Hendrix, Kiss, Black Sabbath, and many other classic artists.

Her debut album "Stuff We Leave Behind" is out now www.wonkytonkmusic.com.

Jasmine Lorraine “Wonky Tonk” Poole grew up in the hard scrabble portion of the American heartland. Kentucky, to be precise. Her world of loss and longing is familiar terrain for lovers of country, bluegrass and folk music but, just as Kentucky can be viewed as a bridge between north and south, Wonk’s music blends elements of Indie/Alternative rock with old school country. It’s hard to separate the wonk from the tonk. Nor should you try.

Wonk’s influences, John Prine, Guy Clark, Modest Mouse and Loretta Lynn among them (especially Loretta), are apparent but her music is not derivative. Loretta, Skeeter Davis, Iris Dement and Jenny Lewis come to mind but none of her comparables quite pin her down. Wonk is her own cowgirl. “Cowgirls get up in the morning, decide what to do and do it”, she was told as a child. Fiercely independent but naturally shy Jasmine uses her alter ego and blue cowgirl boots to deal with the notion of impossibly cruel but equally exhilarating existence.

In late December of 2012 rock n’ roll gave birth to Breathing Kansas, a small trio out of Northeast Georgia. An equal balance of hair and talent, the rockers look to influences such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Whitesnake, Jimi Hendrix, Kiss, Black Sabbath, and many other classic artists to help refine their sound.

Breathing Kansas is Tyler Smith (vocals/guitar), Logan Payne (drums/percussion), and Daniel Leverett (bass/vocals). With intricate, sweeping guitar solos, bombastic bass lines, elegant vocal harmonies, and a deluge of beautifully articulated drum fills, Breathing Kansas is developing into a musical powerhouse destined to reshape the music industry.
