It’s been nearly six years since Welshly Arms hit the Cleveland music scene hard back in early 2013, almost immediately making a major impact with the appropriately titled Welcome EP, and a showcase slot at Austin’s South by Southwest Music Festival. Starting out as a quartet, the now six-member ensemble has a sound that draws on classic rock from the late ’60s/early ’70s, with blues, soul and rock influences from that era, including Jimi Hendrix, the Temptations, and Otis Redding, updated for today’s music fans.
Since then they’ve signed a major label record deal, added to their catalogue, toured by U.S. and Europe multiple times, and even had their music used in a Cleveland tourism campaign. Their most recent album, No Place Is Home, on Republic Records, was released earlier this year.
The band includes founding members Sam Getz on vocals and guitar, Brett Lindemann on keyboards and vocals, Jimmy Weaver on bass and vocals, and Mikey Gould on drums, plus vocalist Bri and Jon Bryant.
Catch them when they touch down in Cleveland at the House of Blues where they’ll be performing with another up-and-coming Cleveland act worth catching — the starkly soulful Whiskey Hollow, featuring riveting singer/songwriter/guitarist Madeline Finn whose experienced vocals suggest a performer much older than her mid 20s.
The Blue Stones are also on the bill. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show.
