Motherfolk / James & The Drifters
Motherfolk, Cincinnati’s strongest gift to the indie rock scene, have been the focus of increasing attention with every release and tour since 2014. Their last release, Fold , earned serious industry and tastemaker praise, and the energetic live shows that followed created a loyal and significant fan base.
On the road, they’ve supported such acts as Brandi Carlile, Magic Giant, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Lydia, Blues Traveler, and The Classic Crime. In the studio, they’ve been fortunate to collaborate with amazing producers, from Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, Vance Joy) to Tony Hoffer (Beck, Chromeo, M83, Foster The People).
With their newest release, Family Ghost , coming out October 18th everything has gotten bigger for Motherfolk. Musicianship, energy, intensity and songwriting all define a new peak for the band. This is the album that places the group in the spotlight their powerful music has earned.
About James & The Drifters
JATD is a 4 piece rock band. A brotherhood turned band. But always a brotherhood first. JATD invites you to rummage through the depths, lean into life and to follow a glow that is sometimes dimmed, but never extinguished. JATD is an exploration of passion, happiness, and the merger between music and the connection with ineffable things. The songs are hearty, the rhythm pulses, the harmonies cut, and their live performances entice. And there is no James, only Drifters.
Formed in small town Indiana JATD now calls Ft. Wayne home. For over 8 years JATD has written, produced and recorded numerous full length records and EP’s. Their latest full length record was released under Neat Neat Neat Records on February 1st 2019.
