DOOMTREE

Doomtree started as a mess of friends in Minneapolis, fooling around after school, trying to make music without reading the manual. The group had varied tastes—rap, punk, indie rock, pop—so the music they made together often bore the toolmarks of several styles. When they had enough songs, they booked some shows. They made friends with the dudes at Kinkos to print up flyers. They burned some CDs to sell. The shows got bigger. Although each member has a career as a solo artist, every so often the whole crew convenes to make a collaborative record as a group.

Jeremy Messersmith

JEREMY MESSERSMITH

Jeremy Messersmith was born in Charleston, South Carolina, and grew up in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. He began playing music in church at a young age, and like many homeschoolers, counts Sandi Patti, Carman, DC Talk and Michael W. Smith amongst his earliest musical influences. After a promising trumpeting career was cut short by braces, Jeremy took up the guitar. In 1999, he moved to Minneapolis to study music at North Central University. After his first album, The Alcatraz Kid, was released in 2006, City Pages called Messersmith the "premier under-30 songwriter in the Twin Cities”.

Stereo Kitchen

STEREO KITCHEN

Stereo Kitchen recreates music from all eras and for all walks of life. However, classic rock ‘n roll with a twist is their mainstay. You cannot resist the dance floor to up-gunned versions of songs by Petty, Kid Rock, Skynyrd, Rolling Stones, Cheap Trick and Grand Funk Railroad, to name a few, and be relentlessly peppered with timeless pieces from Elvis, Stevie Wonder and Rare Earth.

The New Grey

THE NEW GREY

Formed in August of 2017, is a unique blend of Hip Hop, R&B, and Indie Rock. Four months into working on material as a unit, the band entered the studio, producing a five song self titled EP. Since its debut, the band has hit the ground running, playing both local and regional venues ranging from basements and bars to colleges and Milwaukee’s Summerfest. Additionally, the New Grey began to receive radio play on both FM and college radio. With the release of their second EP “Blender,” and plans to return to the studio to begin work on their third release, there is no telling what is ahead for The New Grey’s musical conquest.

“We believe that our partnership celebrates our diversity, and shows that there is more that unites us than divides us. When people from different backgrounds, neighborhoods and religious faiths come together, we can strengthen community, support education and build relationships that will help us address community challenges that impact all of us.”
— Rabbi Avi Olitzky, Beth El Synagogue

“We all share a common bond, despite our backgrounds, despite our differences. By joining together, we can collectively use our talents, skills and passions to positively impact our communities and society. This starts with partnership and it starts with being good neighbors.”
— Adam Ehrmantraut, Ed.D., President, Benilde-St Margaret

“We're really excited to be playing Common Sound this year. I'm pumped to be part of an event that so heavily celebrates inclusivity, community building, and unity - three things that have always been extremely important to the Doomtree ethos. This is currently the only full-crew Doomtree performance on the books for 2019, so it should be a real doozy. Can't wait!”
