The Creaky Bones were founded in 2020 outside Washington, DC in Northern Virginia. Founding members Mike Jones and Rich Russman bring a 15 year history of writing and performing with one of DCs longest running Rock bands, The Jones, followed by a 4-year outing as The Virginia Southpaws. They have also released several solo projects, as well as worked on productions for TV, video game, and film music-licensing. “Last Ride Home” is a roots/rock song that sounds anthemic and has catchy-sing-a-long lyrics. The song is available for purchase/download on all major retailers and streaming services.
When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
