Michigan native Lynn Callihan‘s percussive guitar stylings and warm baritone combine to create a “dark Americana” sound that calls to mind the plight of the everyman.
On his latest single, “Skin and Bones,” he uses this timeless sound to shine light on the homeless.

You know that we like to keep you guessing around here. So, true to form, we’re starting off the New Year with one of our most unique and eclectic UMC20 playlists to date!
Listen to UMC20
Walter DeBarr comes into 2021 on a songwriting tear. It seems every time we chat with the West Virginia native, he has something new up his sleeve that he can’t wait to share with the world.
Try this band name on for size: The Godzilla Attacks Tokyo Kamikaze Blues Band.
Now, say it ten times fast, and get ready to dig into their latest single.
Hear “Your Silence Says it All”
It’s pretty odd to think that we’re coming to the tail end of 2020. For one thing, things have actually picked up here considerably in UMC Land in December, with more live streams and all sorts of other fun on our plates. Imagine that — a December that actually gets busier as it goes.
For another, more obvious point: it has certainly felt at times like 2020 would never end, hasn’t it?

Y’all… this was a process. It was such a process, in fact, that this will be the last UMC50 playlist ever.
Welcome the UMC50 Class of 2020
Earlier this fall, Casey Jo & The Friday Night Dads released their full-length debut, Twin Mind, combining honest Americana storytelling and indie rock grit, with shades of influences ranging from punk and alternative, to psych-rock and blues.
On this edition of The Quinn Spinn, the band joins us to discuss the creative process behind the album, and the melting pot of influences that led to its creation. Plus, we get a glimpse into the future, and discuss the distinct difference between the “two Nashvilles” we’ve all experienced.
Compiling this Best Of edition of UMC20 was a challenge enough. As usual, we had a strong month of music around here, and choosing 20 songs always seems to be a formidable task.
However, this challenge pales in comparison to the one that awaits this weekend.
Listen to the Best of November
