WELSHLY ARMS combines their love of blues with rhythm and soul & good ol’ rock and roll, to create a fresh throwback sound that represents their Midwestern roots. Comprised of Sam Getz (guitar/vocals), Brett Lindemann (keys), Jimmy Weaver (bass), Mikey Gould (drums) and Bri and Jon Bryant (bgv’s), Cleveland-based WELSHLY ARMS pays homage to many of their collective musical influences such as Jimi Hendrix, The Temptations, Otis Redding, and Howlin Wolf.
The power of their live show has quickly built them a dedicated following in the US. In 2016 WELSHLY ARMS performed at SXSW, Austin City Limits, Laurel Live, Summerfest, and took a trip on The Rock Boat. The buzz earned them a spot on a 53 date tour across the US supporting NEEDTOBREATHE and Mat Kearney. In 2017, WELSHLYARMS will beef up their national and international presence with performances confirmed at Rock im Park and Rock am Ring, as well as yet another trip on The Rock Boat, this time supporting Andy Grammar. Their music has been featured in promos for the Emmy-nominated show, Empire (FOX), broadcast advertisements for Miller Lite, and national TV/radio campaigns for the Cleveland Indians
Their single “Legendary” has recently been featured in TV commercials for Hulu, Indian Motorcycles, the NFL, and is just starting to pick up traction at radio throughout Europe.
