Re: “E.T. Comes Home

Hope The ET Hooley show isn't the only one. I would fly back to Cleveland in a heartbeat to see it, but I am pretty sure i will be on tour. Some fantastic musicians! All Ways loved this band in any of it's incarnations!,,, Kevin Dugan

Re: “Cellar Dwellers

Justin Markert here. I'm not the only one behind Cellar Door Records. Here's a quick bio:

Cellar Door Records is a small boutique label run out of Cleveland Ohio.

In 2002, good friends Justin Markert (me) and Rick Fike opened a coffee shop in small town Madison Ohio called Cellar Door Coffee & Music. The 135 capacity room served as a catalyst for the arts, an organic space taking many shapes and forms. Sometimes it was an art gallery, showing the work of a local painter, sometimes a comedy club during an amateur open mic, but mostly it was a music venue. Bands were booked on a weekly basis. Everything from acoustic singer-songwriters to four band hardcore shows. Dozens of nationally touring bands came through Cellar Door, opening the eyes of it’s clientel to a world of music they had never experienced before. We wanted tangible evidence of this creative music scene that had sprung up in rural Madison, thus Cellar Door Records was born.

Cellar Door Records Volume I had a run of 125 copies. Printed and put together by hand, the compilation contained two tracks from six of our favorite artists. A CD release show was thrown, the artists performed and the CD was given out for free. We sold the coffee shop and went back to our normal lives.

In 2007, Rick and I regrouped with partner Adam Butcher to officially re-launch Cellar Door Records. The label was reborn at the Beachland Ballroom on March 3, 2007, with the official release of Cellar Door Records Volume II. We got lots of press, had a run of 1000 CDs professionally printed and drew a very large crowd in one of the most respected venues in town. Since then we’ve had 5 official releases and many Cellar Door Records sponsored shows. After putting out a number of individual artist’s albums, we’re returning to form with the release of Cellar Door Records Volume III.

Re: “Cold Comfort

***Article Typo***
Paragraph 3 states that the cd was recorded at Anteup Audio, which is a false statement. The Crooked Road Ep was recorded and mixed by Terry Geer of Apparatus Productions, later to be mastered by Anteup Audio.

I thought this article was going to be about a baby conceived after sex with Kid Rock. I'm glad it wasn't.

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

Righteous and holier than thou? Mr. Niesel would do well to limit himself to reviewing music rather than attempting to analyze the artists who create the music, which he is patently not qualified to do. Most unprofessional of him...

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

I got my CD the night of the release party at Barley House .... I've already worn it out ... played in my car, my house and even at work ... so much so that co workers were asking where they could get a copy ... Now I need a new copy .... grateful I can hear the songs online until I can catch up to them and get a another CD .... Your review is a little confusing ... U like them? Don't like them? I've followed them almost since day 1 and they sound better EVERY time I hear them. Breakin WILL be a hit ... Totally confident they are going far ... great group of kids! You better check them out live and see what their fans think of them !!!

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

You got it all wrong Jeff! Righteous and holier than thou?! As everyone else is stating this couldn't be farther from the truth. ABNA is an amazingly talented band full of dedicated musicians whose passion for their music is obvious to all their fans. I think you need to clean your ears out and re-listen to truly understand their greatness!

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

Obviously Jeff has never met the band. As far as the album, I think it is great.

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

How disappointing is it to expect a really great review and to have to read something as out there as this one. When I listen to Circles I literally get chills, and it gives me such a good and happy feeling inside. It moves me, and isn't that what good music should do? I would encourage everyone to buy this CD because you will get the same great feeling I get when I listen to it! I have followed ABNA since it first started, and believe me when I tell you that they are the most appreciative and non assuming people you have ever met. They truly love what they are doing and have made many life sacrifices for it. It really makes me sad that when the reviewer could have hit it out of the park with this review he chose to go somewhere in left field and talk about some "Holier than thou" garbage. What a shame! Again Circles is AWESOME and I encourage everyone to listen to it and form your own review. I promise you wont come up with anything like this junk!

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

These musicians are some of the most talented people I've ever met. Not only that, but they're also some of the most genuinely good-hearted people that I've had the pleasure of knowing. Anyone who has met the members of ABNA would testify that they certainly do not have 'holier than thou' attitudes. I am in love with this album and have not listened to much else in the month since Circles was released. The release of this album was a long-awaited and much anticipated day for the ABNA fans and followers, and I believe we were all very impressed and pleased with the way the album came out. But even with the success of the release party and the overwhelmingly positive feedback, the members of A Band Named Ashes have remained humble and kind. They're doing this because they love it, and we love them for it!

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

circles is sick. i dont know where all this holier than thou jazz is coming from

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

in my days of getting to know musicians, few have come across as so genuine & humble & fabulously talented as the ashes gents & lady! a group comprised of true music lovers that in a society where most bands mold themselves to fit a specific air & trend, would never compromise their music or themselves to be anything other than what they've always been, a gifted family of virtuosos. sanctimonious? hardly. these guys are about as sincere as they get. this music is meant to be listened to with a grin on your face & a tap in your foot.

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

Wow Jeff, you really outdid your self this time didn't ya? Your major accomplishment in this review is how you've actually made me read your material without pounding on the back button. Not only have you mistaken their style, approach, message, and inspiration, but you've failed to recognize how this album fits in the evolution of prog. folk rock. I would buy this album 10 more time if need be. I hope for your sake that this review was a sorry attempt at gaining attention for your column.

Re: “Northeast Ohio Music Releases

The CD has its highs and lows, but over all it is one of the best new releases i've heard in along time. Track 5 "Breaking" will be ABNA break through song. Keep up the great work ABNA. Best of luck.
