Soulful Alt-Rock from Youngstown

CLICK HERE FOR THURSDAY’S SHOW

 

Why you should see this show…

The Vindys feature a blend of pop, jazz, and rock with soul influences. These red-hot up and comers from Youngstown have drawn comparisons to Amy Winehouse and cite Norah Jones, Jeff Buckley and Tom Petty as influences. Brad Savage, program director of The Summit 91.3 FM, explains, “To me, they really personify Youngstown and northeast Ohio. They’ve got depth and substance and are instantly likable. Their songs get stuck in your head after one listen.”
 

The Vindys Bio
The Vindys have become one of the most sought-after bands in the Northeast Ohio area with their unique blend of alt-rock that Cleveland Magazine says, “…reminds us of the Black Keys,” and “…make us want to dance, whether we’re in a grimy dive bar or a field in Lake County.” Their album, Bugs, is out now.

The Youngstown, Ohio based band is led by powerhouse singer-songwriter-guitarist Jackie Popovec who The Repository says “…uncannily evokes Amy Winehouse on the more retro songs while going full-tilt rock ‘n’ roll on the harder, moodier numbers.” WKBN-TV (CBS) calls the band “… one of the hottest acts in the area… Canfield’s Jackie Popovec — her voice is a blend of Amy Winehouse and Norah Jones.” The Beaver County Times boasts “…Popovec will grab you immediately. She sounds sweet and sultry, vulnerable and persevering.” Rounding out the band is John Anthony on guitar/harmony vocals, and Rick Deak on guitar/harmony vocals. All are classically trained musicians who combine their skills, Popovec as the primary songwriter, and arrangements by the band, resulting in a depth and maturity in their music that is intricate, yet relatable.

Because they are passionate about representing Youngstown as a place where the music scene is thriving. Their name pays homage to their roots by drawing influence from Youngstown’s daily newspaper, The Vindicator.

The band has performed at various festivals including WonderStruck, WonderRoad, Three Rivers Arts Festival, LaureLive, Winnetka Music Festival, and Summerfest where the band won the first day of the Emerging Artist Series selected by voters on Twitter. Additionally, The Vindys have shared the stage with Pat Benatar, Orianthi, The Drive-By Truckers, Judah & the Lion, Hunter Hayes, Reeve Carney, and more.

 

 

Goldpark Bio
For the members of Nashville-based alternative rock trio Goldpark, the best music comes from true collaboration. The warmth and strength of their bond, as both friends and musical partners, ripples through each song they create and every show they perform.

The band first connected in 2019 when Andrew Smith moved from Memphis to Nashville, meeting Wes Hunter through a work colleague. The pair was immediately struck by their similar musical sensibilities, and they began filling in for each other at various gigs around town. Kyle Neblett soon joined the mix, and by early 2020 Goldpark had started working on their first EP.

Goldpark’s songs are a point of connection not only for the band, but for the listener too. Even as the musicians examine the highs and lows of human existence, they also lean towards optimism. In hard times, music can be what unites us and drives us.

In April 2020, the newly formed trio’s demos caught the attention of Hazel Street Records. Inking their record deal just as the pandemic struck, Goldpark were forced to regroup and figure out how to launch a band without the road. Undeterred, Goldpark persevered and started to write, record and release their debut EP, Goldpark One, which was released in August 2021. “It would have been easy, because of social distancing and remote sessions, for this record to sound like it was made solely with a computer,” Andrew notes. “In a time when human interaction was scarce, we aimed to make songs that sounded like humans playing music together. These songs are a pillar of hope, like the light at the end of this tunnel.” Bolstered by a mix of blog buzz, DSP playlisting and a slew of eager new fans, the band were finally able to hit the road in Summer 2021.

Now, after nearly a year of touring around the US, Goldpark are preparing to step into their next chapter: Goldpark Two. “[This EP] is special for so many reasons,” the trio remarked. “We had the right songs, the right producer (Jeremy Lutito), and the right spirit. This body of work is the best representation of who we are and where we are going. We hope this EP makes people smile.”
