The Heavy Set:

Born of a residency at famed Winona, Minnesota watering hole and music venue Ed's No Name Bar, The Heavy Set is a roots rock band based out of Minnesota.  Founder and lead singer Jake Ilika resides in Minneapolis, while the band is spread across Rochester and Winona, Minnesota.  With an EP under their belt and measurable progress made in their short existence, they're poised to release their first full-length album, "Everybody's Got A Mountain" in November of 2015.  Engineered and produced by Erik Koskinen (who also plays on the record), the album also features Jillian Rae, Dylan Nau (Apollo Cobra), Siri Undlin (Undlin & Wolfe) and Max "Maxaphone" Felsheim (Root City, Nicolas David).  

The band came together at one of Ilika's weekly residency nights at Ed's No Name Bar (Winona, MN) in January of 2013, and by the summer, they were at Winterland and Real Phonic Studios making their debut EP, which garnished praise from local media like The Current, Southern Minnesota Music Scene, and The Noisy Neighbor entertainment blog.  The 6 songs on the EP represent their approach to Americana, with down-tempo heartaches of songs, weeping steel guitars and even a heavier and edgier form of rock and roll.
