    The Bill Mattocks Quartet will start up officially in September of this year..(although there might be some sneak previews here and there) this is an offshoot of what I do when I tour the Northwest. It's primarily a Blues show (although I stray slightly in the music when I feel like it) Featuring a whole lot of Harmonica. Helping me along with this project is one of the best Guitar Talents in Western North Carolina...Howie Johnson.

    Aunt Vicki is a Trippy Guy/Girl duo that rides the line between folk and psych rock. They tend towards a moody ethereal sound with an old-fashioned grit, but also venture into the shady edges of pop leaning heavily on their vocal arrangements and stylistic lyrics.

    You might expect a band that calls itself Yarn to, naturally, tend to spin a yarn or two. “that’s what we do, we tell stories, live and in the studio, truth and fiction” singer/songwriter Blake Christiana insists. “We don’t always opt for consistency. There’s a different vibe onstage from what comes through in our recordings. There’s a difference in every show as well, you never know what you’re going to get.”

    Virginia and The Slims started in Summer of 2013 with Virginia DeMoss on vocals, Perry Lavin on drums, James Kamp on tenor sax, Harry Schaefer on bass, Ginger Drake on alto sax and Sean Anderson, on guitar. Virginia's husband came up with the name and we loved it. The idea was to play blues but to play songs people would respond to, especially swing or jump blues as no one else locally was focusing on that. Eventually Virginia left to start a family, Ginger left for Nashville, and Perry and Harry left to pursue their first love, Indian classical music. James and Sean reorganized with Sid Heilbraun, a rock solid bassist, and Brian Gant, a Nashville pro on drums. Rebecca O'Quinn came on board as our singer. After about a year she left, and we met our current vocalist, Joanna Best. Joanna can bring across old time blues like no one's business and has a great disposition. Then we added a long term friend of ours and killer harmonica player, Bill Mattocks as well as saxophonist Vinny Corda and Marco Noto on drums. The band now welcomes Don Pasqualini on guitar, Jeff Delgarn on drums, Tom Fleckenstine on bass.

    Standing on the precipice of a new and exciting venture, the band members of Lovers Leap decided to jump. Under the shadow of the towering rock outcrop in Hot Springs, NC, from which their name was inspired, their sound took flight and soared through the mountain air. Their first encounter was set up by a festival producer as a musical blind date between GRAMMY-nominated bassist Shelby Means (formerly of Della Mae), acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mary Lucey (formerly Biscuit Burners), award winning guitarist and songwriter Joel Timmons (Sol Driven Train), and slide guitar pioneer Billy Cardine (Acoustic Syndicate and formerly Biscuit Burners). The quartet felt an immediate musical chemistry, which insisted on being pursued like a flirtatious lover. As their first show unfolded and boundaries dissolved, the satisfying balance of lush harmonies and provocative solos tugged on the audience’s heart strings while satiating their desires for instrumental virtuosity.

    “Southern-Soul and Curious-Grit” Emotionally-honest lyrics will bid you to wander through hidden scenes in their lives, accompanied by raw vintage guitars and the intimate harmonies that only life-long lovers could discover. Uncovering the pursuits of purpose and love, with the triumphs therein, and exposing the pains of severed relational connections, My One And Only reaches into the expanses of their hearts to bring up lyrics that will cause you to wonder if they have been reading your diary.

    At its core, The Moon and You is a charismatic husband-and-wife team. Melissa Hyman plays cello, Ryan Furstenberg plays guitar and banjo, and both sing in “voices that sound like they were made for one another” (Bill DeYoung, Connect Savannah). But whatever you might assume based on their gorgeous vocal blend and heartfelt lyrics, this ain’t your basic folk duo. With a rotating cast of talented friends to add unexpected instrumentation to their lineup, The Moon and You never plays the same show twice. This ever-evolving, expandable and collapsible model leaves the band constantly reinventing itself in ways both surprising and satisfying.

    Americana duo The Honey Dewdrops – Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish– have long felt the push-and-pull between their original roots in the Appalachian mountains and their current home in urban Baltimore. You’ll hear it in their harmony soaked songs and the mastery of their instruments’ acoustic tones, but also in their songwriting, which reflects the hard realities of today. With their fifth independent release, Anyone Can See out on March 1st, 2019, they have primed the creative energy so prevalent on their previous releases. Each song sparkles with focused intensity, and, with their new album, the duo show that they’re growing rapidly as artists, enthusiastically exchanging an impossible quest for perfection for the compelling ebbs and flows that accompany an intimate, authentic kind of expression.

    "Sid Kingsley is a modest man. He doesn’t think of himself as any more than simply a journeyman musician. After a few false starts, he came to the realization that making music was all he ever wanted to do, and while he doesn’t trumpet his skill and ability, it’s obvious at the outset that the man is easily one of the most talented artists making his bow in recent memory. He’s content to write and record his songs. But the profound talent at work here is evident upon hearing the opening title track of Good Way Home -- talent that boasts a wellspring of honesty and conviction, fresh and formative with a wisdom and authenticity that’s as old as the ages.

    It wasn't a given that these musicians would wind up in anything remotely resembling a bluegrass band. Singer Melody Walker got into world music and belted out roots-rock. Bassist Jeremy Darrow studied jazz. Leif Karlstrom trained as a classical violinist, and still prefers that title to "fiddle player." Mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz studied classical guitar at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
