416 Cedar Ave S, Minneapolis, MN, 55454

From the beginning, Communist Daughter has been an outsider, a band of unassuming midwestern musicians, their gracefully dark indie rock, and their heavily troubled past. Born out of the struggles of singer / songwriter John Solomon, six musicians from Minneapolis and Saint Paul MN came together in 2010 to make ?Soundtrack to the End.? Their highly touted debut album about drug addictions, lost love and lost chances. Barely more than a basement recording, the album started hitting critics lists and soundtracking hit tv shows, all while the band was stuck in limbo waiting for John as he spent 2010 and 2011 in and out of mental hospitals and treatment facilities.

In 2012 John returned with his bandmates, his now wife Molly Solomon, bassist Adam Switlick, Steven Yasgar on Drums, Al Weirs on guitar and Dillon Marchus on keys. That summer they put out another critically acclaimed release, their EP ?Lions & Lambs? and began touring the country for the first time, playing with the likes of Jason Isbell, The Walkmen, The Mountain Goats, Sturgill Simpson and more.

Communist Daughter spent the next few years on the road in between recording sessions with acclaimed producer Kevin Bowe (Replacements, Meat Puppets.) They took their 2nd album to Nashville and mixed the record with Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Benjamin Booker) that summer and came back with their sophomore LP ?The Cracks That Built The Wall.?

With the release of the record in Fall of 2016 they garnered the widest critical comparisons yet, from Brian Wilson to Nirvana to the National, having critics tag them with ?post folk grunge? to describe their unassuming genre bending style. Through it all, people connected as much with the complicated back story as they did with the music as John began talking about his recovery in mental health and addiction. Communist Daughter ended their last national tour at SXSW in March of 2017 before heading back into the studio to start work on album #3, coming soon...

Tue Jul 03 2018
An acoustic band born in the land of tech innovation, Front Country was never going to be accepted as an authentic American roots band out of the gate. Cutting their teeth in progressive bluegrass jams in San Francisco's Mission District and rehearsing in the East Bay, they learned to play roots music their own way, with the tools they had on hand. A mandolinist with a degree in composition and c...
