The Prestage Brothers
The Prestage Brothers
Ben Prestage’s musical background began before he was born... even before his parents were born. Ben’s great-grandmother was a Vaudeville musician who toured with Al Jolson and also participated in medicine shows. Her daughter was a Boogie-Woogie pianist and painter who used to play for Ben when he was coming up. On the other side of the family tree, his grandfather, who was a Mississippi sharecropper turned Ben onto the sounds and culture of Mississippi and Blues in general. “When my father was growing up in Mississippi,” states Ben, “ they never had running water and the only electricity was one light bulb that hung from the ceiling, but they had it better than some of their neighbors, because they didn’t have dirt floors. I grew up in rural Florida, on a 14-mile-long dirt road, near the headwaters of the Everglades. It was 7 miles either direction to the nearest paved road, and when you got to pavement, you still weren't near a town. It was panther, gator, and cottonmouth country. Out there, there was only one kind of music in the house. Whether it was being played on an instrument, or on a recording, it was Blues.
Lauris Vidal
Lauris Vidal
Lauris Vidal has always treated the neck of his guitars like the skate parks of central Florida, where he grew up. Lauris has navigated both instrument and skate session with an aggression and ease of stride that serves not to impress or intimidate, but to inspire and invigorate.

"This Florida roots-rock / Americana quintet earned critical acclaim with their 2008 debut Casting Shadows Tall as Giants, becoming an NPR favorite and getting regular airplay on PBS's Roadtrip Nation. They're like a cross between Death Cab for Cutie and Wilco, thanks partly to singer/guitarist Matt Burke's earnest, Ben Gibbard/Jeff Tweedy-like croon. His lyrics are both imaginitive and vibrant (and printed in a mock newspaper article style insert!), relating historical tales, heartfelt odes to his hometown, and clever social commentary. The outstanding playing (especially from inventive drummer Jean-Paul Beaubien and viola player Joshua Hernandez) and flawlessly detailed production on rollicking songs such as "Sons & Daughters of the Gilded Age," "Kerosene & Candlelight," and "The Ballad of Asa Dalton" further ensures this exceptional album is no sophmoric slump." - The Big Takeover.. "(HGWT) were well outfitted with striking songs and a great ensemble feel. Brothers Matt and Danny Burke front the outfit with winning personalities and solid chops. Since they played the Americana conference a couple of years ago they've made stops in Music City, so if you're into Band-like, elemental roots-and-roll, check ‘em out". - Music City Roots, Nashville.. "...organic, infectious Americana Pop. HGWT's music has a refreshing immediacy to it... Excellent work, fellows." - American Songwriter.. "My album of the year, so far... All in all, an exceptional and hugely atmospheric album from a band that shows that there is still room in alt.country for experimentation." - Maverick Magazine (UK).. "a dozen catchy, clever songs... splendidly fleshed out with old-fashioned instrumentation and other organic, ambient sounds that augment the record's endearing, back-porch feel." - Metromix Tampa.. "The band crafts Americana with an edge. Taking influences from a bunch of diverse sources and channeling the whole through their own branding. The mix is infectious..." - Alternate Root Magazine.. "Top 10 contender for album of the year..exceptional atmospheric album" - The Roots of Rock (New Zealand).. "...traditional enough to attract the hardcore Americana fan yet different enough to attract those who are not normally impressed" - Discussions Magazine.. "well-written stories wrapped into pop-tinged folk and americana songs." - onechord.wordpress.com.. "Somewhere between indie pop and Americana, and teetering on that line in a way that seems fresher than usual." - brandnewkindof.wordpress.com.. "Postcards... is a masterpiece" - paperpistol.ca.. "Essential Listening" - Ninebullets.net.. "Stellar" - Tampa Bay Times..
