Hotel Ten Eyes
HOTEL TEN EYES is a Rock N’ Roll outfit which began on December 7, 2017 when Joe Fletcher and company made their first appearance at Dino’s in Nashville, TN. One month later the band began recording their debut record, Positively Fireproof, for release some time in 2018.

Fletcher's writing is the centerpiece of the operation though it is melded with a different musical landscape than he's been known for in the past. The songs are raw and very electric and have earned comparisons to Nick Cave, The Gun Club, Tom Waits, and The Velvet Underground.
Todd Albright
Todd Albright is a country blues, twelve string guitar player and vocalist based in Detroit, Michigan. Grounded in the pre-war era of the blues tradition (1880-1939), Todd is a mindful purveyor of blues history. His repertoire upholds musical pillars such as Blind Willie McTell, George Carter, Blind Lemon Jefferson and Leadbelly. His life’s work continues the distinguished tradition of the very roots of American music as told by the African American musicians who created it. 

Todd's vigorous, gritty and soulful performances are accompanied by stories of the masters and a deep intuitive sense of respect for craft, providing audiences with a meaningful experience while creating a transcendent moment. One of the top blues guitarists in the world, Todd is the only contemporary twelve string player in his genre.

Todd began playing the blues while still a teenager, some twenty-five years ago. Initially, he was drawn to the sound of the finger-picked style and has since immersed himself in the foundational music and narratives of American culture. Over the years, Todd has shared the stage with artists such as Roy Book Binder, Charlie Parr, Paul Geremia, and Dakota Dave Hull. 

Todd's first full-length LP, Fourth Floor Visitor, was released by Jett Plastic Recordings out of Detroit, Michigan (2017). His latest album, Detroit Twelve String: Blues & Rags, is out now on Third Man Records (2017).
