Madison, WI's Old Pup is a psychedelic folk outfit with a love for lap steel, singing saw, and surrealism. The project was created by multi-instrumentalist Will Hansen, who plays guitar, bass, singing saw, lap steel, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, vocals, cigar box guitar, and broom on the album ("JunkDrawer Daydreams” released March 1st, 2019). The trajectory of the project is currently moving towards collaboration, with live performances featuring duo, trio, and full band iterations of the songs. Hansen recycles influences from Folk and Americana music to create his eclectic, psychedelic originals, while always tipping his cap to the heroes that haunt and jolt him to life everyday (Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt).

Captain Coopersmith is a multi-genre rock band based out of the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. Motivated by many styles of music, their sound is not easily defined and constantly evolving. However, if you listen closely you are likely to hear the sweet lull of 60’s/70’s era melodies rising from an eclectic roar influenced by the styles of My Morning Jacket, Pink Floyd, Billy Joel, and Cat Stevens.

Captain Coopersmith has had the pleasure of playing larger Chicago venues like the The House Of Blues & The Metro, as well as more intimate gigs like Martyrs, The Double Door, and The Elbo Room. Should you want a taste, you can find Captain Coopersmith on Spotify, YouTube, and iTunes.
