EDISON, singer/guitarist Sarah Slaton, multi-instrumentalist, Dustin Morris, and Grammy-nominated guitarist, Maxwell Hughes (formerly of The Lumineers) - is an indie rock trio from Colorado which has quickly emerged as a musical force. Edison has quickly formed a national fan base thanks to their high-energy live shows and tireless touring efforts. In addition to countless club gigs, they've earned attention at such music industry conferences as SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon and Folk Alliance International. "We've been on the road nonstop for over a year", Slaton notes. "We didn't have a lot of releases out there so we decided to hit the road and meet as many people as we could and foster those relationships." That strategy worked, winning the band a devoted national audience as well as support slots with the likes of Iron & Wine, Langhorne Slim, Andrew McMahon and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats.
Onward Etc.
Onward, Etc.

Onward, etc. is a musical project put together by Rosco Wuestewald. Leaving the midwest at an early age, he started a journey traveling around the world which has developed into a project known as Onward, etc. The project connects musicians located throughout the country, enabling each tour and show be completely unique based on the different band members and the location of the stage. As with anything alive with electricity, permanent members have been picked up along the way. Wuestewald met violin player, KC Olsen, on an excursion in Hawaii in 2009. KC joined Rosco for a gig that evolved Onward, etc. into an unfaltering duo. Their live performances proved to be captivating as Wuestewald's voice carried out his heart wrenching lyrics accompanied by his punk rock roots and Olsen's stage jumping antics. Now in 2014 the band has picked up bassist Dave Edery (Dave Edery & The Scandaliers) hailing from the greats of Honolulu HI & a new percussionist Jon Via out of Columbus Ohio. The Onward, etc. project has been successful as the cyclone of musicians have acquired components and companions in nearly every state in the country. They have played with a dream-come-true list of bands featuring: Larry and His Flask, Skinny Lister, Lucero, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, The Goddamn Gallows, Reverend Horton Heat, Murder By Death and many more. They have been a part of Coachella, Bonnaroo, Floyd Fest, SummerFest, Vans Warped Tour, SE Alaskan State Fair, and venues both intimate and rowdy throughout the U.S. & Europe. This caught the eye of DC Jam Records who signed them in 2013. Onward, etc. lives by their name as they forge onward making a new album "Sonder On" with DC Jam Records and Derek Obrien (Social Distortion, D.O.B Sounds) They released the album in March 2014 and have been ripping up the road with it since. Successfully doing 3 US headlining tours and one European tour. As they march forcefully into the new year there are hints at a new release and lots and lots of touring to come!

"it is hard to grasp how a body in constant motion can be a unifying force. These guys are an example of such a force. Spinning through the world, half musicians, half tornadoes, they carry with them a uniquely contagious will to live. Not in the sense of staying alive - far from it - but rather in living each day fearlessly, creatively, spontaneously and generously. I was fortunate enough to spend two weeks on the road with them this year, and continue to find inspiration in their music."
