Common Chord

Brix Cider is excited to host Common Chord, a Madison-area band that plays "folk to swing and everything in between."

Here they are featured on the radio show "Whad'ya Know":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcOgBXRClfM&feature=youtu.be

With their unique combination of vocal, instrumental, songwriting and composing/arranging talents, Common Chord creates an amazing palette of music. Their repertoire includes vocal-centric pieces with four-part harmonies, toe-tapping swingy numbers, folk and bluegrass-flavored pieces, bluesy tunes, acoustic rock/pop songs and more...something for everyone, with appeal to audiences of all ages. The group focuses on originals from each of three writers in the group plus unique covers from the likes of Tom Waits, the Beatles, Robert Johnson, Paul Simon, and others.

Common Chord was formed originally as a duo in 2015 by singer/songwriters Michael Bryant and Tracy Jane Comer, who were members of the former Madison-area trio Sticky Fingers (early to mid-2000s) and who have worked as a duo on occasion since then. The group quickly grew to five regular performers with the addition of Bruce Buttel, Delores Jenison, and Faye Bruggink. This powerhouse of skills and talents yields a strong creative synergy...the musical whole is much greater than the sum of the parts.

Line Sounds

Enjoy a Sunday afternoon at Brix Cider with Line Sounds. Here's their bio:

Based in Madison, WI, LINE is a lyric-driven indie pop band that started up in early 2018. LINE balances Americana, rock, and R&B influences, creating a sound that swings between moody, electric vibes and reflective contemporary folk. Self-analysis, queer love, and musings on current events show up as common themes in lead singer Maddie Batzli’s songwriting. LINE grew beyond a solo project when Maddie reunited with longtime friend Austin Lynch, a bassist who brings a contemporary and jazz guitar background. Esther Chun joined soon after, providing treble vocals, and Will Ault completed the group, adding drums and Cajon. Beyond the music, what makes LINE special is the apparent joy they take in playing together, and the chemistry that results from that friendship and shared drive.

Maddie Batzli: Lead vocals, keys, guitar, ukulele
Will Ault: Drums, cajon, vocals
Austin Lynch: Bass, guitar, vocals
Esther Chun: Vocals
