Learn more about the Welshly Arms:

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.

We chatted with Welshly Arms, read more:

1. What’s the story behind “Legendary”?

Well, I actually started to write it in my shower (you never know where and when inspiration will strike)… It’s about overcoming struggles and challenges to do something great, whatever that may be. Could be an athlete who has trained all their life to win a championship. Could be a musician who has practiced for hours on end. It’s really for anybody who has something to prove and is up for the challenge.

2. Which “Legendary” artist, dead or alive, would you most like to perform with?

Jimmy Hendrix. He is one of the biggest influences in my life. He was one of the most innovative entertainers and I would have especial loved to see what his show.

3. Your music has elements of blues, rock, and rhythm & soul. If you could only listen to one of these genres for the rest of your life, which would you choose and why?

If I had to choose it would be a tough one. I think Rhythm & Soul because you need to be able to dance every once in a while. You need to have a great tune to sing along to and without that, life would be pretty tough.

4. What was going through your minds when you first heard your music in a commercial?

Mmh, that beer looks tasty. Oh no, our first commercial was actually for the Cleveland Indians, our hometown baseball team. We are all big fans so it was a huge honor to have our music represent our home team. 5. Performing at SXSW and ACL must’ve been wild! What’s been the best part about playing festivals so far? The opportunity to play our music for so many new people. It’s always great to play in a packed club to people that already know your songs but it’s really something special to get a festival crowd to sing along to a song that is most likely brand new to them.
