The Ridges (Athens, Ohio)
Can we just adopt Athens as part of Cincinnati? Doing so would then mean that when The Ridges (already a Cincy favorite thanks to regular shows in the area) become the next big Indie Folk band to make it huge, we could claim them as our own. Seems like a good call. Those amazing cello sounds from Talor Smith and the vocals she shares with musical partner Victor Rasgaitis meshed together on their 2011 self-titled album to form a perfect storm of acoustic noise. The duo and their rotating cast of friends/support make it work incredibly well. The band’s Facebook page keeps promising a full-length album this year, but we’re still waiting.
