Future Thieves
Young musicians come to Nashville to chicken-pick and twang. They come to sing about trucks, girls, and girls in trucks.

Not so with Future Thieves. They came to rock.

You hear it in the first seconds of the first track of their first album. Horizon Line, available now on all major digital media, kicks off with a punchy drum intro. Then the band comes in: a quiet verse with urgent lead vocals, crashing guitar chords and thundering bass licks power into the chorus and then it ends suddenly, leaving listeners exhilarated and hungry for more.

That first track, “Rosie,” is just the beginning. Throughout Horizon Line, lead singer/rhythm guitarist Elliot Collett, lead guitarist Austin McCool, bassist Nick Goss and drummer Gianni Gibson lay down a sound so compelling that you’d think they’ve been hammering it together for a decade on the road.

In fact, Future Thieves is just a little over two years old. Yet in that brief time, they’ve stirred up plenty of attention from fans throughout Music City and then beyond the city limits, onstage at Bonnaroo and Summerfest and back home for Live On The Green, on tours with the Black Cadillacs and 10 Years and at venues in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta and throughout their expanding territory.

They’ve also garnered press raves any band would kill for. Read what No Country For New Nashville had to say about one of their local shows: “They oozed charisma from the start. … Halfway through their set, a buzz could be felt in the air, like we were all at a legitimate big-time rock show, with national touring headliners. … They were pulling people in off the street in droves. Tourists, locals, vagrants, all bobbing their heads to the beat. … The band was dripping in sweat, giving it their all and rocking so f**cking hard it was easy to forget that we were just a stone’s throw away from country cover honky-tonks.”
It began in a swamp.

Well, in a Tipi in a swamp, with a telephone attached to an ironbark gum. This is not fiction. This is the cold smoking truth.

Guthrie delivers honest and distinctive foot stompin’ electric blues.
These rugged southern gents sing songs of love, murder, vengeance, addiction, redemption, lust, longing and loss. Dark and magnificent, Guthrie delivers an unmistakable sound and an incendiary live spectacle.

Never shying from a stiff drink, a late night or a long drive, Guthrie boast a streetwise education born from extensive national touring, major festival performances and sweating it out alongside some of the nation's finest performers. Guthrie have well and truly carved their name wherever they go.

New sounds, new smiles, new directions (say it out loud)
Watch this space....Guthrie's future is a firecracker!
The Begowatts
The Begowatts
In the beginning, before man, before animals, before our world had the oxygen to sustain aerobic life, before the trees that made the oxygen, before the soil that allowed those trees to grow, before the cometary bombardment that seeded the planet with water, the Earth was made of Rock. Our planet has changed much since those early days, but the foundation of Rock still remains; a yearning for the primeval felt by every being that knows the ecstasy of life and finality of death. For the entirety of recorded history there have been those that channel this awesome power, and time has chosen The Begowatts to continue this ancient tradition...

The Begowatts began as an extremely clever way to piss off their first landlord and have since become one of Madison's premier rock & roll shows. What began as a rag-tag collection of very handsome men (and one drummer) just banging out a few covers to entertain friends has become, through sacrifice and hardship, a full-fledged, bowel-quivering rock & roll band. For the past year The Begowatts have enjoyed continuing success as the house band at the world famous Bike Shop, while still finding time to play the occasional show at Madison's hottest venues. Even more recently the band has teamed up with renowned producer Phil G. in an attempt to capture the power, the sadness, the joy, the legend; The Begowatts. The world waits with bated breath to see what The Begowatts will do next.

We are proud to claim a strong influence from bands like The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Black Keys, Blue Oyster Cult, Talking Heads, and many more. This influence shows clearly in our growing catalog of original tunes. If you're interested in the kind of music we play swing on over to the music page to check out our latest recordings. Even better: come to one of our shows! We promise you won't be disappointed.
