Athens' Southeast Engine sign to Misra Records
I've been sitting on this info for a few months, but I think it's safe to announce now (seeing as how the label itself is stating it).
Athens, OH. folk-pop outfit Southeast Engine has signed to New York/CA. label Misra Records.
I think what is so special about this is that SEE is a band that has been working their butts off for years. They write wonderfully creative songs, with excellent lyrics. They constantly tour and they have worked their way into a great following within different cities, soley based on their music. If any band deserves it right now in Ohio, it's Southeast Engine.
From the Misra Myspace site:
Misra is an Emeryville, CA based independent record label with branch offices in New York, DC, Seattle, Birmingham and elsewhere. This year we are releasing recordings by Palomar, Hallelujah the Hills, Sleeping States, Mobius Band, Southeast Engine and a few other surprises to be announced. Visit our *other* website at www.misrarecords.com for more MP3s and information.
Plus, Southeast Engine is apparently set to perform at this year's CMJ New York festival.
