After branching off from another band, Gretta, Derek and Angie formed the Dirty Socialites to explore their varied musical influences. They do just that on their debut album Amor or Armor, which was a completely homegrown project from the recording and mastering to the artwork.

Since their last visit to the WYSO studios, Sohio has been busy writing and recording.

Sohio will perform at Peaches Grill in Yellow Springs on March 25th with the Black Owls.
The members of Sam at Eleven have been playing together for many years, originally under the name HQAX.

Sam at Eleven will celebrate their CD release on March 19th at Blind Bob's in downtown Dayton.
