Your Story Made Here

By Bart J Helms

The Northest Indiana Regional Partnership and One Lucky Guitar teamed up to make a series of videos about our hometown. If you watch only one, here the video on the local music scene featuring lots of friends.

It’s fantastic stuff, as we’ve all come to expect from One Lucky Guitar.

Our song “High Wire Lover” was included in the video on local arts.

Lyndsy and Bart on The Illegitimate Sons’ American Music

By Bart J Helms

Lots of folks already know this, but we never posted this to the blog. (Even after playing the release show!)

Lyndsy and I both appear as guests on American Music, the new album from Lee Miles and The Illegitimate Sons. The album credits read like a who’s who of our hometown’s roots musicians, so we were honored to be asked.

Do give the album a listen on Bandcamp.

Heroes of Local Music: Chain Smoking Records, Geoff Montgomery, Morrison Agen and More Friends

By Bart J Helms

DA Fisher’s “My Heroes of Local Music” in last week’s Fort Wayne Reader reads like a list of good friends.

And so I made a list of some of my favorite local heroes. The people who are currently putting their money and their time and their energy where their gobbers are. Not so much the writers who cover the activities, because they’re pricks. I know this much. And not really the capitalists or even the musicians. The movers. The shakers. The balls-y folks who make the good times happen because they have that age old drive to improve their community. The real bastards of young. The sons of no one.

I’m flattered to have made the list myself. Someone tell Mr Fischer I owe him a fancy beer.

Zombie Walk!

By Bart

We had a lot of fun performing for Downtown Fort Wayne’s Fright Night as part of the zombie walk. Thanks to DID for inviting us and big props to our Indianapolis friend Tanya for driving up and daring to swallow fire on the wobbily float!

Everyone in the walk looked fantastic. There’s some real (creepy) creativity running through this town! Here’s a video of some lovely zombies via WANE News Channel 15.

Our Home Scene in the News

By Bart

Fort Wayne, our hometown, has long been the home of a vibrant and varied music scene. Out of nowhere, D. A. Fisher, an outsider from Brooklyn, was handed boxes full of homegrown discs by a coworker. We’re thankful to have a passing mention alongside the many truly great songwriters and performers named. Read his take on our scene’s history on The Reader’s site here.
