Ampline & The Tillers made CincyMusic's Editor Picks of 2018!
The Tillers in my opinion are the OG Americana band in Cincinnati. Every single show, video, album they do is perfection. Plus, they are just the nicest guys on the planet.
“The Tillers for many years now have put out some great records. Each one has shown growth from the personal to the musician. For every song is a little autobiographical in some way, I believe. With that belief these records show a band that started as a trio, shot a video on pickup truck, had Tom Brokaw visit while he did a documentary on Route 50, and with the passing of their friend still carry on and are now a foursome. Through all of this we get to hear it in the records. Lives on the road and people’s couches, coast to coast, and overseas and back again for the joy of song and sharing that with everyone they meet.” – Moose Gronholm (CincyMusic)
We were waiting a long time for this album and it was well worth the wait. Ampline is a staple band in Cincinnati and we are proud of it. A favorite from the LP is the title track, “Passion Relapse.”
