Mr. E & the Stringless Kite: We don’t want to be put in a box, but Mr. E & the SK can be best described as dreamy, ethereal, psychedelic folk rock: lush harmonies and arrangements.
The North Fork: The North Fork is a Omaha and Lawrence based progressive folk rock band started in February of 2013. The band has gone through numerous changes in instrumentation, band personal, and sound--including the shift from being originally all acoustic to now having rock instrumentation. The music is written by the sole remaining original member, Cole Jeffrey (Vocals, guitar), and supported by: Marty Mootz (lead guitar), Mario Vlasic (bass, backup vocals), Alex Thiessen (drums), and Kolby Koczanowski (vibraphone, percussion). The North Fork released it's debut album "Highlands" on December 11th of 2014. The album is a blend of many genres, with bits of: folk, progressive rock, psychedelic rock, and jam. The result is a sound with peaks and valleys. The album can be found on the Facebook page, or at thenorthfork.bandcamp.com.
