There’s no chance you’ll leave a Floorwalkers show disappointed. Not a chance. The Columbus band with Cleveland roots closed the 2013 Downtown Live Concert Series at Columbus Commons last Thursday. Spot-on vocals, lively stage presence, a sneak peek at their next album and a fireworks finale made for a memorable night.

I first heard of The Floorwalkers about three years ago when I was interning for SoHud Music Collective. How cool of an internship to get to work with local bands… and get into shows for free?! I discovered a lot of great bands during those three months. More on that to come.

This recent article in The Lantern pretty much sums up The Floorwalkers’ awesomeness.

A smart social media presence, a nearly constant touring schedule and sheer talent led to a successful Kickstarter campaign. Fans raised over $8,000 to fund the recording and release of the band’s sophomore album to be released later this year. The Floorwalkers have also appeared on Daytrotter where Troof favorite, Drew Davis, will perform September 23.

If being voted best band for three consecutive years by (614) Magazine doesn’t convince you they’re worth a listen, maybe 10K Facebook Likes and a recent show with Mumford & Sons can encourage a listen? Stream their first album, The Natural Road, below then buy it on iTunes or CD Baby. Yes, CD Baby still exists.
