Miriam Linna began her music career as the first drummer for the Cramps in 1976 New York. The Sudbury, Ontario, native went on to pound the skins for the Zantees and frat-rock luminaries the A-Bones. Linna is perhaps best known for co-founding the legendary Kicks magazine and Norton Records, both with her husband Billy Miller.
In 2014, Linna teamed up with producer Sam Elwitt to release her first solo album, the wall-of-sound tour de force Nobody's Baby (Norton), which was lauded as the best album of 2014 and reached #1 on the influential WFMU. Linna hit the ground running in 2015 with the smash single "The Hand Don't Fit The Glove," with a new album Down Today to be released on October 2nd.
Miriam Linna backing band (Nobody's Babies) is led by Sam Elwitt, with Bruce Bennett, Justina Davies, Matt Fiveash and David Lindsay.

The Stents are Baltimore's finest rock 'n' roll combo. They will thrill and will excite and will climb onto any object imaginable. Nothing stops this combo from bringing their "double, double toil and trouble!" The Piggies are NYC's rock'n'roll combo with the Stonesy/VU swagger, the tunes and the grit... Never to be missed! The Split Signals play mid-'60s influenced power-pop at its finest.
Dead Flowers got its start as a celebrated music-centered online platform for its writers' passions and obsessions. It was a place to read about the classics reconsidered, the obscure brought into the spotlight, the lost re-found, and the so-called "marginal" made to matter... Those elements animate Dead Flowers Productions, an enterprise devoted to managing, booking, and promoting bands and projects that ignite those same passions.
