Ryan and Mitch met while playing in a drag queen's band sometime in the 90s, and went on to play together in Scoring Dope for the Ultimate Woman, and then later with songwriters Blair Lott and Lindsay Rakers. They also have an art-metal project called Rat Mass.
Stacey and Cade are cousins, and they've played together in bands like Fancy and Myssouri. Stacey also played in Blair Lott's band with Ryan and Mitch. Those three also made an electronic record under the name Ultralap. So there's that.
Stacey, Cade and Ryan were in a creepy country band called Wormwood, GA that somehow turned into BLACKFOX when Mitch joined.
Boxcar Radio rises from the ashes of the cosmic west with alt country/ americana tones that takes one back to days of riding the rails.
THE GOOD GRACES
The Good Graces is an indie-folk collective based in Atlanta, GA. Formed by singer-songwriter Kim Ware in 2006, tGG has performed up and down the east coast, in California, the Midwest, and at such festivals as 30A, NXNE, Athens Pop Festival, and International Pop Overthrow. Their previous album, "Close to the Sun," explored a variety of styles and genres, from folk and alt. country to 90s-inspired indie pop. In 2015, the album caught the attention of the Indigo Girls, and the band was asked by the renowned duo to support some midwest and southeast shows during their summer tour. The new record, "Set Your Sights," marks their 4th full-length collection, and once again places Kim's heart-on-her-sleeve songwriting and earnest, honest lyrical delivery at the forefront of a sonic expedition led by producer / guitarist Jonny Daly and supported by a long list of players from Atlanta and the southeast.
