Now Gathering Mercury prepares to release their debut album, Where the Others Go.
The members of Magic Jackson have been hard at work in the studio on a new album that's set to be the label debut for IBC Records.

In this installment of Excursions, The Relentless Mules visit WYSO to share their energetic brand of Bluegrass.
Based in Columbus, the Relentless Mules have played all across the country bringing high quality Bluegrass wherever they go.

Jared Welch and Jacob Pflanzer began playing music together in high school and have been performing under the name Army of Infants for about two years. As the band prepares to embark on a tour, they've just released a limited edition 7 inch.
