About Us

WELSHLY ARMS combines their love of blues with rhythm and soul & good ol’ rock and roll, to create a fresh throwback sound that represents their Midwestern roots. Comprised of Sam Getz (vocals/guitar), Brett Lindemann (keys/vocals), Jimmy Weaver (bass/vocals), and Mikey Gould (drums), Cleveland-based WELSHLY ARMS pays homage to many of their collective musical influences. Listen to “The Touch” or “Two Seconds Too Late” from their debut E.P. Welcome, and you just might hear a little Jimi Hendrix, The Temptations, Otis Redding, or Howlin Wolf.

Launched in early 2013, the band debuted their video single for “Two Seconds Too Late” and garnered over 25,000 views on its first day of release. With buzz quickly building WELSHLY ARMS rocked their first headline show to a sold-out crowd at the Beachland Tavern, capturing the attention of many Clevelanders including fellow musicians and local press. Throughout the year, WELSHLY ARMS continued to establish a reputation for strong, spontaneous, and explosive live performances, from SXSW 2013 in Austin, TX to Los Angeles’ Hotel Café to House of Blues Cleveland, among many others.

In the fall of 2013, WELSHLY ARMS expanded their reach when three of five tracks from their debut E.P. were placed in promotional spots on television’s CW Network, including “The Touch” on Vampire Diaries and “That Voodoo” on The Originals. Following the success of their first E.P., WELSHLY ARMS recorded a 6-song Covers E.P. that released in late February 2014, giving a fresh spin to songs such as Sam and Dave’s “Hold On I’m Comin” & Roy Orbison’s “You Got It”.
WELSHLY ARMS is currently hunkered down at a house on Lake Erie about an hour outside of Cleveland to write and record their first full-length record, due out later this year. When not consumed by all things Welshly, you can find any of these four Clevelanders at a local dive bar throwing darts, drinking Great Lakes brews, and listening to their favorite tunes.
