soaring hooks." Ireheta was named Best Female Musician of 2016 by the LA Music Critics.

(Early Show) Cosmic Wind / Dan Getkin and the Twelve Six

Cosmic Wind is Pittsburgh's newest psychedelic rock band, specializing in the harmony-laden vibes of the late 60's and the spacey sounds of 70's. After the breakup of Ball of Flame Shoot Fire, lead singer and guitarist Tim Good moved back from Brooklyn to Pittsburgh to start his dream band, mixing early Pink Floyd, Brother Records-era Beach Boys, Gram Parsons-style country-rock, and anything else they can reimagine through their hazy, groovy sound. Although they're heavily retro-oriented, Cosmic Wind finds new ground in the cross-pollination of multiple classic sounds and styles.

Dan Getkin and the Twelve Six - Dan Getkin fronts a rocking alternative-country group from Pittsburgh, joined by Bill Brandt (guitar), Alex Herd (bass), Eddan Sparks (drums), and Jake Troxell (keys). These are energetic songs, songs with passion, songs that will lift the roof off of the house. With a strong sense of melody, Getkin builds each tune from a stripped-down skeleton into a frenetic rocker. Fans of Ryan Adams, Wilco, and Jackson Browne will appreciate the balance of strong songwriting and enthusiastic live performance.
