Don't call me Betty
Throughout history, many bands write just one song that gets stuck in your head for days. Don't Call Me Betty plays those songs. By day, some members work as faculty at the prestigious Jacobs School of Music, another is a local Optometrist, still others work for other area businesses. By night we leave these professional persona's behind and pull out the Rock and Roll, focusing primarily on pop music of the 70s and 80s. Go ahead an sing along - you already know all of the words!

Follies is the progressive, rhythmic folk creation of Bloomington-based solo artist, Kate Siefker. Self recorded, mixed, produced, and illustrated, Follies creates a unique one-on-one experience with her listeners through layers of intricate percussive textures and harmonies. Kate has worked in collaboration with many Bloomington artists, including her previous work with local freak-folk group, an argot. She co-wrote and self-produced the band’s recent album "Prima Materia", but is now focusing on producing her first album as an individual artist. While Follies’ individuality is clear, Siefker does more than break new musical and stylistic ground; she has a genuine passion for her craft: “Music is my soul - this is probably the most cliche thing you can say, but all my energy and my being resonates in music. Even if I tried to not write songs, it would still happen in my mind. This is the most liberating way I know how to identify with the world and the chaos within it.” Contact Poppy House for booking inquiries.
Good News / Bad Wolf
From among the ten thousand residents of a "we gotta get out of this" town, we three became reluctant friends during our early teen years. Sharing a reverence for long hair and loud instruments, we eventually produced a few chaotic songs between us. Then, we stopped playing music together. None of us remember why.
Eight years later we started playing again, and once again, none of us knows why.
'First Steps' is how this grassroots singer-songwriter, Jesse Lacy, has walked into the lives of music lovers everywhere. He combines poetic lyricism and softly assertive vocals to make each track both a meditation on youthful hopefulness and coming-of-age nostalgia.
We are all atomic/galactic universal miracles. I have been, I am and as long as I'm an Earthling, I will be thoroughly obsessed with sound waves. Once upon a time I jumped on Daniel Lanois band wagon to learn about some of the things that made this human such a sought after musical producer; I later jumped on George Clinton and the Parliment Funkadelic's band wagon, to learn how this genius could be and stay so relevant for so many decades. After briefly hanging out with the King of Blues: B.B. King, who intstructed me to; "just be myself, and after my older brother's recent suicide, I have decided to capture the "fusion" power of the Sun and fire my musical-rocket into the "heart of our Human Species."
