RL Cole & The Hell You Say
RL Cole & The Hell You Say
A rock’n’roll blending machine, RL Cole weaves a retro style & tone with an electric, energetic howl & unique, wild performances. It’s a hard-to-match mix of up-tempo primitive rock’n’roll, early psychedelic, and blues ballads.

Performing 2017-2018 with the excellent, in-the-pocket band The Hell You Say (members of The Night Sweats, Florea, & A. Tom Collins), the quintet brings a sharp edge back into their carefully crafted music.

“The music Cole creates is part blues, part otherworldly, slow-burning firestorm that defies conventional genres, with a live show that leaves the audience’s jaws hanging….there’s a riptide of tension throughout the record.” Heather Browne- Springs Magazine

Larry Nix
Larry Patrick Nix, born in Tupelo, raised in Alabama, is the son of the Earth and Moon, torn between a life of fighting ultra-crime, and the life of a Music Man. He chose the ladder. No that's right, the ladder, and he climbed and climbed and climbed. ...until the ladder collapsed, and dammit if he didn't design his own ladder. Made of wood. Strong maple, that doesn't bow in the humidity. Shit, sorry. The songs, right. They're good too.. Classic shit.

Jess Parsons
With equal parts heartbreak and splendor, Jess Parsons' songs evoke the classic singer songwriters of the 70's with a touch of Rumour's-style world weariness. An alumnus of the "hauntingly hopeful" folk rock act Glowing House, she can also be seen performing alongside avant-double bass wunderkind Julie Davis in Bluebook.
