Old Soul Society
Old Soul Society
Old Soul Society is a Wisconsin based group that is firmly rooted in Americana with branches into Folk, Rock, Soul, Pop, Roots & Blues.

Old Soul Society’s focus on the craft of songwriting is displayed in the rich, textured musical layers they create to underscore singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Derek Ramnarace’s passionately honest and heartfelt lyrics. These details combine into a powerfully stirring live performance that has been winning over audiences everywhere..

Joining Ramnarace are members of other top Wisconsin bands including: Ben Rohde on Drums/ Percussion, Andrew Steeno on Bass/ Double Bass, Leah Rachuj on Violin/ Vocals, Mark Davini on Keys, Kenny Leiser on Violins/ Guitars, Matt Becker on Keys/ Vocals, Paul Metz on Percussion, Cody Davis on Upright Bass as well as many other featured guests.

The star is already burning bright for this group and only appears to be getting brighter with the release of their debut album in March 2016
The Lower 5th
The Lower 5th
The Lower 5 th incorporates folk, rock, R&B, reggae, country and bluegrass to produce a unique blend of Midwestern Soul that swings, sways, rocks, and wails. The band was established in 2011 when Luke Jorgensen, Cory Swadley (The Northern Pines) and Paul Metz(The Mascot Theory) began to work together to write and perform songs that draw from and build upon their common diverse musical roots. With the addition of Jayme Cash (keys)(The Northern Pines, Moonhouse) Jeremy Henning (Trombone) and Audrey Pescatelli (bass), The Lower 5th is a band of powerhouse musicians that play high energy music from the heart and leave it all on stage with every performance. The band has performed in many venues in Madison and across central Wisconsin including featured sets at Wiskeyonsin Family Reunion, Ragged Roots, Bandit County Fair, Madison Charity Jamboree, and Sunshine Soul festivals, radio and television performances and weekly residencies at The Come Back In and The Up North Bar.
Katie Scullin Band
Katie Scullin Band
Imagine if Amy Winehouse, Ann Wilson and Gotye's Kimbra got together (in another dimension) for an hour of laughs and heartfelt tunes. Wisconsin-native Katie Scullin wraps up this unseemly trio with her powerful, classic voice each time she gets behind the mic. But there is something else--a gut-wrenching refrain here, a playfully voiced electro-riff there.

You can find her in backwoods bars and low-key martini lounges. Katie is a faithful fixture in Madison's after-dark haunts. Don't mistake her for a college trend, though. She's had equal billing in small town establishments and festivals, as well as large venues around the Midwest.

In 2009 Katie led the band Rivalry as it took home the Emerging Artists Series Competition Award at Milwaukee's Summerfest. She was front woman for Star Persons, an "Electro Rap Pop" group that received numerous awards at the Madison Area Music Awards in 2011 and 2012. In May 0f 2014 Katie was crowned Best Singer/Songwriter by 105.5 Triple M Radio's Project M with a second accolade that year as Best Musician/Band by The Jefferson County readers poll. Katie is working as a solo artist and playing out with a newly formed band 'K. Sxull' featuring guitarists Dj Scullin and Darren Marabelli, Travis Drumm on drums and Nathan Wiswall on bass.

Some people play music to play music. Some people sing because they can. And then there are those who write searching lyrics because they must, who work on music because they are compelled to deconstruct, reinvent and refine. Katie has a way of wrapping you in her rhythm, surprising you with a jab here and a soft, elegant whimper there. She has turned the indie-pop ballad on its head, and continues to craft an impressive arsenal of original songs planted firmly in her own style.
