Welshy 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. Listen to their newest single ‘Legendary’. Listen to the new single now on the Shoot New Release Playlist!
Comprised of Sam Getz (guitar/vocals) Brett Lindemann (keys), Jimmy Weaver (bass), Mikey Gould (drums) and Bri and Jon Bryant (background vocals), Welshy Arms pay homage to many of their collective musical influences such as Jimi Hendrix, The Temptations, Otis Redding, and Howlin Wolf.
Welshly Arms are from Cleveland, Ohio. The band has been active since their debut in 2013 with the EP Welcome. As of November 2016 they have also produced four singles, a covers EP, and an album titled Welshly Arms.
The band has a strong connection to their hometown, whose musical history has also inspired them with bands such as The Ojays, The James Gang and The Black Keys. The band writes, produces and records all of their material in their hometown.
Their music has been featured in trailers for two blockbuster films: The D Train (starring Jack Black) and The Hateful Eight (directed by Quentin Tarantino), as well as the national TV and radio campaign for the Cleveland Indians and a promo for the Netflix show Sense8. Their name refers to an Saturday Night Live sketch.
The power of their live show has quickly built them a dedicated following in Ohio and has set the stage for things to turn into a national following. In 2016, Welshy Arms had performances on The Rock Boat, at SXSW, Summerfest, Austin City Limits, Laurel Live, and many more.
Their newest single ‘Legendary’ is currently running in TV commercials for Hulu, Miller Lite, Indian Motorcycles and the hit FOX show Empire.
