Nick Dittmeier is a singer-songwriter from southern Indiana. He fronted the alt-country band Slithering Beast for five years. In early 2013, he branched out and started performing under his own name and established a new band. His first release was an EP called “Extra Better.” It garnered local and regional attention and radio play, while earning him a nomination for “Songwriter of the Year” at the First Annual Louisville Music Awards. Relentless performances ensued, while writing a new record. The new album, “Light of Day” is slated for release in April of 2014.
Dex Romweber Duo‘s brand new album, Images 13, derives its name from the cover art, an existing piece from Romweber’s own portfolio, although not enumerating the tracks (of which there are 12). Romweber was particularly forthcoming in our conversation, reflecting on his affinity for film noir, working with his friends in music, and how he would frame an autobiographical documentary, in contrast to the cult-favorite, Two Headed Cow. With a decades long career as a guitarist who rips it up every night he performs, Romweber opens up about how both his music changes or stays fixed, his duos evolved, and how he is feeling his age catching up with him, but is grateful to continue making music. He left me wanting to talk with him again.

Austin Lucas was born into music and his latest album, Stay Reckless, shows his growth as a songwriter. Like many rockers we cover, Lucas has no interest in replicating his previous records, and strives to constantly move forward and improve as an artist. For Lucas, that transition happened in the midst of divorce and relocating to Nashville — plenty of personal material for a great album. On the record, Lucas is backed by Glossary (Country Fried Rock alumni) and live he has assembled a great band that has toured together extensively over the last several months.
