CHRIS HAISE BAND:
‘Future, Future, Who Am I?’ highlights the band’s contagious hook-filled melodies while keeping true to Haise’s Dylan-esque vocals. With pop undertones and a more indie rock feel than their previous releases, it spotlights their musicianship, vocal harmonies, and cello-laced compositions that will get stuck in your head for days. The seven unique compositions dive into the subject matters of disillusionment, burnout, voluntary victimhood, self-destruction, feeling misunderstood, worrisome thoughts, and eagerness.
Cullah (Born Ian McCullough on April 27, 1991 in Milwaukee, WI) is a multi-disciplinary musician and engineer who releases an album every year on April 27th since 2006. In 2021, Cullah reached his milestone album ½, where he celebrated half of his life releasing music. With each revolution around the sun, Cullah explores and documents his human condition through various stories and song. Cullah finds his inspiration from in many places – you may find yourself moving from Appalachian Folk to French House seamlessly in a musical collage.
Cullah describes his pull towards music as “not a choice” and as a magnetic and constant presence in his life. Cullah describes his draw towards music as inherent to his being, perhaps even in his DNA. His grandfather, orphaned at a young age, would perform the fiddle in bars to make just enough money to eat that day. His mother, Mary, was one of seventeen children and she was one of eleven daughters – all named Mary (from Cullah’s grandfather’s devotion to Mother Mary). His grandfather told endless stories of divine visions and visitations from angels, many delivering music. Cullah’s two grandparents and seventeen aunts and uncles would participate in the largest family band in American history called “The Wolff Family Band”. In his mother’s womb, he toured the Midwest as she played her clarinet and tenor saxophone.
