Daphne Willis – Dan Rodriguez

With Chicago roots and Texas ties, Daphne Willis brings both musicality and grit to the songs she writes and plays. Born in San Antonio to a classically trained vocalist and audio engineer, Daphne began singing at an early age and found her way to the guitar in high school. Since then, she’s developed the confidence, melodic mastery and vocal range that have won her admirers from here to Beijing. Daphne didn’t plan a career in music. But as a student at DePaul University in Chicago, she found herself performing at open mic nights, which led to regular Chicago gigs and, eventually, a decision to leave school and hit the road. So she assembled a band and began playing 200 shows a year across the United States. Daphne released her independent EP Matter of Time in September 2007; in a twist of fate, Vanguard Records head Kevin Welk heard a track on an American Airlines flight. This led to a record deal in 2008 and the release of her second EP, Exhibit A. To record her first full-length album, Daphne headed to the hills of Tennessee. She released What to Say in 2010, which was co-produced by Tim Lauer and Grammy winner Gary Paczosa. Album number two, Because I Can, came out in 2011 and reached the number two spot on iTunes’ Top 40 Singer/Songwriter Chart. On her latest EP, Inside Outright, Daphne co-wrote songs with Hunter Davis, Chris Faulk, Angela Lauer, John Oates of Hall & Oates, Keri Barnes and Tim Lauer. Daphne currently calls Nashville home, where she crafts her distinct brand of pop and is poised to expand her fan base world wide. Her most recent EP, 2015’s Get It, features the single “Done With Bein’ Done,” co-written with Grammy Award winner Meghan Trainor.

Dan Rodriguez, an artist based out of Minneapolis, MN, is creating quite a buzz in the Midwest. The groove-based, bluesy over-toned sound of his music, mixed with his powerful, yet seductive voice creates an atmosphere different from other music. It’s refreshing, tantalizing, and just plain good! Originally from Detroit, MI, Dan moved to Minneapolis in 2004 to pursue music. He started a band with his brother, Andre Rodriguez, and called it The Auburns. They played locally for a couple of years and grew together as a band, as brothers, and as musicians. In January, 2008, Dan started a self-titled solo project in the Twin Cities. Promoting his band as a trio, Dan started playing venues in the local music scene. As things began to go well, a greater demand for Dan’s music rose high enough to inspire him to record an album. June 13th, 2008, the album Unreal was released in Minneapolis, followed by a self-titled EP in 2011. His most recent album, Roaring Dan, was released in the Summer of 2013. Dan has since been playing locally and touring throughout the Midwest and beyond, and sharing the stage with national acts including Grammy award winning duo The Civil Wars, Pete Francis (Dispatch), NeedtoBreathe, Augustana, Tyrone Wells, John McLaughlin, Andy Grammer and Eric Hutchinson. In September 2014 Budweiser released their “Friends Are Waiting” commercial featuring Dan’s performance of his original song “When You Come Home,” which was written for the commercial and pitched through Minneapolis based company In The Groove Music. “I’ve been in this business a long time. I recognize when somebody has something real. Dan is a true talent, and seems to be ushering in a new wave of singer/songwriters around the Twin Cities. I can honestly say I’m excited for the world to hear what he’s got to offer.” – Michael Bland

United Working Families South West Committee, 12th Ward IPO, 15th Ward IPO, 22nd Ward IPO, 23rd Ward IPO, 25th Ward IPO and the entire south west community presents the South West Vote Unity Rally!

#SOWEVOTE Unity Rally!

After a successful South West Candidates Forum, United Working Families South West Committee is gearing up to fight for the issues affecting our south west communities by enacting our right to vote.

Over the decades Chicago’s Southwest side communities have been overlooked by crooked politicians and private interests, neglecting our families and their needs. As UWF’s South West Committee we understand the struggle and challenges our communities are facing today, this is why we have been working closely with a new wave of emerging independent political organizations (IPOs), composed of working families who are tired of being the ball in Chicago’s political game. Our work together is the result of years of organizing, activism and campaigning for people’s champions, now we are ready to grow our next wave of community defenders!

Join us this Thursday March 10th 3:00pm at Kelly Park (2725 W 41st St, Chicago, IL 60632), where leadership from IPOs from the 12th, 15th, 22nd, 23rd and 25th wards will come together in a unity roar to fight for Education, Revenue, Immigration and Police Accountability. After a short press conference we will all march to Mckinley Park Polling Location (2210 W. Pershing Rd. Chicago, Illinois 60609), where together, IPO and community members will have the opportunity to cast their early ballots.

Come and get involved with your local IPO or join UWF Southwest committee directly as a member-at-large, Chicago’s South West side families need you! Lock arms with us and together we will continue the fight for all working families.

Dom Chronicles is the first KC bred artist officially added to the Indyground label, thus bringing the new wave of IGE talent to their frequent Midwest targets. Now no longer the new kid, Dom is gearing up to release his long anticipated follow up to 2014’s
“Atoms”. Being well received by new and old Indyground supporters alike, Dom is the trendsetter amongst the new school in Kansas City and abroad.

Enter “Reality Makers”, Dom’s greatest effort to date, has the young artist aspiring to reach even more people and let them know it’s okay to be yourself and take ownership of the new millennial generation. Fusing trap, conscious, and hippy cultures, his new music is very distant from his last album bending barriers and ignoring genre, Dom is evolving, and he thinks you should too.

Dom Chronicles new album “Reality Makers” coming March 8th, via Indyground Entertainment.

Get Off The Couch March 2016 featuring ODE w/ Simeon Peebler, Jake Mack, & Matthew Francis Andersen

March 06, 2016 at Hideout Inn in Chicago.

Our March showcase sees us welcoming back the amazing Ode as our headliners – if you were at their last showcase in 2014, you’ll already know that this will be one not to miss.

Joining Ode in the rounds will be 3 newcomers to our stage, but all incredible artists and well regarded in the Chicago music scene: Simeon Peebler, Jake Mack Music, and Matthew Francis Andersen.

The show will be hosted by Sam Wahl, and Dia De Los Tamales will be serving up deliciousness.

Where: The Hideout Inn (1354 W Wabansia Ave, Chicago)
When: Sunday March 6th
Time: Doors 6pm / Show 7pm
Tickets: $10 – advanced ticket purchase HIGHLY recommended!

*****
What happens at “Get Off The Couch“?

Sam Wahl hosts the 4 songwriters who are all literally on a couch (or chairs poorly disguised as a couch) on the stage. One by one they are introduced and encouraged to “Get Off The Couch” by the audience. Each artist then plays two songs, stripped down to their acoustic bones, telling stories behind the songs etc. Once the round is complete, the same happens for a 2nd round, so each artist plays 4 songs… there may even be a collaboration or two!

After a short break, the second half of the show sees the featured artist return to the stage to do a FULL BAND headline set. After which we all mingle and drink beer.

THE ARTISTS
——————–
ODE (headliner)
http://www.odemusic.com/

Ode is a five piece group made out of sticks, strings and memories that stare at them from the past, like sling shots, drawn back, ready to let go any time something goes wrong. But they stick together, bass or no bass, rent or no rent, slowly but surely they are mistaken for a gypsy ensemble that plays rock’n’roll- punk and Bolero ballads, maintaining that yearning and earning just enough so they don’t burst in tears when they are exposed to clean cut jib jab joints and late night star dusting. Ode share their dark poems and dreams through an authentic rock vibe, a familiar, yet new wave of melodious tunes that creates a blend of Chicago rock music.

——————–
SIMEON PEEBLER
http://www.simeonpeebler.com/

The classic protest song is something of a lost art. Its legacy lives on in modern folk and Americana, but socially-conscious music about current events has largely become the purview of punk and hip hop in recent decades, at least in the mainstream. But that’s not to say the classic protest song is entirely lost, and singer/songwriter Simeon Peebler would thank you to remember it.

Peebler (who pronounces his name “Simon” despite its less-common spelling) may be a late bloomer–he didn’t start writing music until he was 38–but his songs show a natural talent for composition, for storytelling, for performing.

——————–
JAKE MACK
http://www.jakemack.com/

Jake Mack is a Rock/Americana/Soul/Blues musician out of the western Chicago suburbs who plays an eclectic mix of finely-honed originals and carefully-selected covers. A career musician, you can expect Jake Mack to be playing nearly every weekend.

——————–
MATTHEW FRANCIS ANDERSEN
http://www.matthewfrancisandersen.com

Matthew Francis Andersen was born and raised in Chicago. But as a former walleye and musky fishing guide home has also been as far as northern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. That’s where Andersen’s EP Blue Line takes you: from the local taverns and street lights, to the boat landings and rivers deep within the northwoods. Matthew Francis Andersen’s writing shows you where this Midwesterner has been. Logging trucks and taxi cabs, game wardens and bar patrons live inside these songs.

Andersen has won American Songwriter Magazine’s 2012 Lyric Contest, and shared the stage with the likes of Steve Forbert, Kevin Gordon, Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart.

Matthew’s EP Blue Line is now available.
