One needs only drop the needle on Pietrini's new release, Rock & Roll is Dead, to see why he is so lauded in Milwaukee and beyond. Best Live Act in Milwaukee (Milwaukee Magazine) Artist of the Year (Wisconsin Area Music Awards) Best Song in a Feature Film (Mark Awards LA).
Having opened for the likes of Walker Hayes, Huey Lewis, and Ray Wylie Hubbard, Pietrini has proven his ability as someone who can run with the best. He has also toured extensively, carving out audiences as far north as the twin cities and as far south as Tampa. Be it his skillful writing and dynamic production, his endearing and energetic stage presence or his everyman's approach to his music, it's clear that this new album and this band, meets people where they are and holds them for the entire 43 min and 31 sec.
Next Paperback Hero
Next Paperback Hero is emotive indie rock by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Nathan Honoré from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Melodic baritone vocals deliver confessional lyrics that are as resilient as they are vulnerable, complementing the guitar-driven sound with an undercurrent of restlessness. Whether performing solo or as a band, Next Paperback Hero retains the intimacy of a singer-songwriter while creating a distinctly soulful, dynamic experience. Named as one of the best Milwaukee albums of 2021 by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Next Paperback Hero's first full length record 'Morning Skies & Heavy Eyes' and it’s 2022 follow-up EP ‘Nowhere To Run’ are available on all digital platforms. For fans of The National, Elliott Smith, boygenius, Bon Iver
