Since Clutch has never achieved anything resembling mainstream success or acceptance, it’s had to settle for rabidly zealous fan worship.

When Morphine burst into the wider consciousness in 1991, the trio’s two-string bass/saxophone/drums configuration seemed pretty radical. Nearly a quarter century later, it takes a good deal more to drop the jaws of modern music listeners.

A friend of mine who is both a musician and a fellow journalist turned me onto Angela Perley & The Howlin’ Moons a few weeks ago. What turned his head around about the group was its live performance at the Huntington Music and Arts Festival.

Cincinnati Entertainment Award Nominees Announced (Updated)

Voting opens Monday for CityBeat’s 19th annual program honoring Greater Cincinnati musicians

On Jan. 31, 2016, the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards winners will be announced at the 19th-annual ceremony/show/party at Covington’s Madison Theater. Today we are happy to announce the nominees for the CEAs, which are presented by CityBeat and honor Greater Cincinnati’s rich and eclectic music scene. Again this year, the public was invited to submit nominee suggestions via an online ballot; a list of the top vote-getters in each category was given to members of the CEA nominating committee for consideration. The committee, which features local music writers, club owners, radio DJs and others, helped decide the final slate of nominees in the genre categories, as well as categories for Best Live Act, Singer/Songwriter and Best Music Vide  (which are open to all genres). Public vote decides the winner of a majority of the categories; the nominating committee determines the winner of the Critical Achievement categories (Album of the Year, New Artist of the Year and Artist of the Year). This year’s nominees include several artists who have previously been nominated (or won) CEAs, as well as numerous first-time nominees. Walk the Moon have scored two Artist of the Year CEAs in past years and return to the category after exploding internationally with its ubiquitous, Platinum-selling hit “Shut Up and Dance” and Talking is Hard album (both released towards the end of 2014). Singer/songwriter Jess Lamb, who kicked off 2015 by appearing as a contestant on American Idol (and is a previous CEA performer and nominee), earned five nominations, including her first Artist of the Year nod. Artist of the Year nominee Wonky Tonk (the Indie/Country guise of Jasmine Poole) also earned nominations in the Singer/Songwriter, Best Music Video and Country categories, following a 2015 that saw her Stuff We Leave Behind album earn widespread national acclaim. Perennial Hip Hop nominee Buggs tha Rocka, who has been working with indie Hip Hop legend Talib Kweli’s Javotti Media label and played the 2015 A3C Hip Hop fest in Atlanta and Cincinnati’s own Ubahn fest, earned his first Artist of the Year nomination. First-time CEA nominees this year include Country artist Taylor Shannon, Jazz player/composer Brad Myers, Metal newcomers Casino Warrior and jazzy Soul/Pop ensemble Krystal Peterson & the Queen City Band.The New Artist of the Year category (as well as other promising new performers) will again be spotlighted at CityBeat’s Best New Bands showcase at Bogart’s on Jan. 16. This year’s New Artist of the Year nominees are Dawg Yawp, Coconut Milk, The Skulx, Go Go Buffalo, JSPH and Mutlimagic. New Artist nominees from the 18th-annual awards program returning to the CEA ballot this year in a big way include Leggy, Honeyspiders and Noah Smith. Public voting opens at noon on Monday, Dec. 21 here.BluegrassMamadronesMa Crow and the Lady Slippers The Missy Werner Band Rumpke Mountain Boys Comet Bluegrass All-Stars My Brother’s Keeper CountryJeremy Pinnell Bulletville Dallas MooreWonky Tonk  Noah Smith Taylor ShannonFolk/AmericanaArlo Mckinley & The Lonesome Sound Willow Tree Carolers  Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle Young Heirlooms Honey & Houston WilderWorld Music/ReggaeElementree Livity Project Baoku The Cliftones Queen City Silver Stars Mayan Ruins Know Prisoners RockMad Anthony Wussy Alone at 3AM Lovecrush 88 HoneyspidersZebras in Public Hard Rock/MetalElectric Citizen Ethicist MoonbowLift The Medium Casino WarriorLiViD Singer/SongwriterWonky Tonk (Jasmine Poole)Jess Lamb Kate Wakefield  Royal Holland (Matt Mooney) Dallas Moore Daniel Van Vechten Indie/AlternativeMotherfolk Us, Today Daniel in Stereo Jess Lamb The Yugos DAAP Girls Punk/Post PunkLeggy The Slippery Lips Tweens Tiger Sex The Z.G.s Vacation BluesNoah Wotherspoon Band Silver Pockets Trio Kelly Richey Sonny Moorman Johnny Fink and The Intrusion The Whiskey Shambles R&B/Funk/SoulThe Almighty Get Down Krystal Peterson and the Queen City Band The Perfect Children The Cincy Brass Freekbass & the Bump Assembly JSPH  JazzBrad Myers Dan Karlsberg and the ’Nati Six The Faux Frenchmen Cincinnati Contemporary Jazz Orchestra Blue Wisp Big Band The Hot Magnolias Hip HopNapoleon Maddox Ilyas Nashid Sleep Buggs Tha Rocka Abiyah Mix Fox ElectronicMoonbeau Ethosine Black Signal  Skeleton Hands Playfully Yours Umin Best Live ActTiger Sex The Whiskey Shambles The Yugos The Slippery Lips Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle  The Cliftones Honeyspiders Noah Smith  Best Music VideoMolly Sullivan - "Before” Jess Lamb - "Memories" Automagik – “Pop Kiss” Playfully Yours – “Colorvision”  Puck – “Ruined”Electric Citizen – “Light Years Beyond”Wonky Tonk – “Denmark”  "Denmark" by Wonky Tonk from Mopics on Vimeo.Zebras in Public – “John Doe”Critical Achievement AwardsAlbum Of The YearHoneyspiders – Honeyspiders Us, Today - T E N E N E M I E S Dawg Yawp - Two Hearted Honey & Houston – Barcelona Jess Lamb - Circles Noah Wotherspoon Band – Mystic Mud Dan Karlsberg - The ’Nati 6The Sundresses – This Machine KillsNew Artist Of the YearDawg YawpCoconut MilkThe SkulxGo Go BuffaloJSPH MutlimagicArtist Of The YearLeggy Walk the Moon Jess LambNoah Smith Wonky TonkBuggs tha Rocka UPDATE: The CEA ballot is now live.
