Description:
GREENSKY BLUEGRASS Greensky Bluegrass is Anders Beck (dobro), Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), Dave Bruzza (guitar), Mike Devol (upright bass) and Paul Hoffman (mandolin). For more than a decade and a half, the members of Greensky Bluegrass have created their own version of bluegrass music, mixing the acoustic stomp of a stringband with the rule-breaking spirit of rock & roll. They redefine that sound once again with their sixth album, Shouted, Written Down & Quoted. Like the band's own name, Shouted, Written Down & Quoted is a collection of opposites, full of dark psychedelic swirls, bright bursts of acoustic guitar, soundscapes, solos, freethinking improvisation, and plenty of sharp, focused songwriting. It's wild and wide-ranging, showing off the diversity Greensky Bluegrass brings to every live show. At the same time, Shouted, Written Down & Quoted is unmistakably a studio album, recorded during two different sessions — one at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, North Carolina; the other at the Mountain House Recording Studio in Nedarland, Colorado — that comprise the band's longest block of recording time ever. The result is an 11-track album whose songs cast a wide net, mixing the full-throttle energy of a Greensky Bluegrass concert with the nuanced approach of a band that's still eager to explore. "You can call us an acoustic ensemble, or a drum-less rock band, or a rock & roll bluegrass band," says mandolin player Paul Hoffman, who, along with guitarist Dave Bruzza, handles most of the album's writing duties. "All of that shifting identity has taught us to cover a lot of ground. There's a flow to this album, just like there's a flow to our setlists. There are some aggressive, rocking moments. Some bouncy, funky moments. An acoustic think piece or two. It's a balance of moods and textures that we create as a band, almost like a mix tape."

21+  Kalya Scintilla and Whitebear stop in Asheville NC for a true marvel of sound, pagentry, dance and beauty.  More on Kalya Scintilla Australian Music Producer and Founder of Merkaba Music, Kalya (Ka –lee- yah) Scintilla ( Sin–till –ah) has always had a love for music; playing in garage bands, banging on drum kits, spinning vinyl in the night clubs of Sydney and getting down to funk! Kalya had a knowing one night listening to one of the most profound pieces of visionary music from the legendary Herbie Hancock, that his soul’s mission was to make music his life’s devotion. Soon after this experience he enrolled himself into a two year audio engineering course and eventually left the city to work on music in the country deep into nature. Taking on small part time jobs to get him by, he made his sole focus and time dedicated to honing his craft. He signed on with Zenon records in 2009 putting him on the map inside the psy-trance world with his first project, Merkaba. His second project, Kalya Scintilla made it to the top ten on Addictech charts in the same year and by 2011 he was touring the U.S. west coast. Kalya Scintilla took hold in the United States as dance floors were all a buzz about the masterful style in which Kalya was throwing down squelchy funky grooves that were uniquely deep and hypnotic. In 2012 he began collaborating with artist Eve Olution inside the album Open Ancient Eyes. New elements took root as these two worked in the studio to add detailed nuances to weave the current mythos of our time within the music. This album is the first of three inside a trilogy dedicated to our human journey, this planet, and our connection to creation itself. Today both Kalya Scintilla and Merkaba are renowned throughout almost every continent on the planet and the popularity of both projects are growing as more & more people are connected with the deep seeded intention of every song. More on Whitebear There are chance occurrences in today’s sales-driven entertainment markets to witness amazingly raw, unbridled talent, the pioneering spirit behind Whitebear may easily serve as a textbook example and has been leaving many listeners speechless with the sophistication of his musical expression, as he progresses into greater and greater depths of electronica.Whitebear has had the pleasure of playing festivals all around the world including Strawberry Fields (AUS), Total Eclipse Festival 2012 (AUS), Deliverance (AUS), Earth Frequency (AUS), Twisted Frequency (NZ), Envision Festival (Costa Rica), Ometeotl Festival (MEX), Sonic Bloom (USA), Enchanted Forest (USA), Shambhala Music Festival (CAN), Belantara Gathering (MAS) and numerous other club gigs. He has supported and played alongside the likes of Desert Dwellers, Opiuo, Phaeleh, Kalya Scintilla and many more.

Genre: [Electro Funk Therapy]Cover: $15 ADVDoors: 8PM Show: 9PM (two sets)Ages: 21+ Spafford Spafford is a four piece funk rock act hailing from Phoenix, Arizona. The band is comprised of Brian Moss (Guitar), Jordan Fairless (Bass), Andrew “Red” Johnson (Keys), and Cameron Laforest (Drums). Refusing to be restricted to any musical boundaries, Spafford seamlessly blends together an eclectic mixture of all of their collective musical experience. The heart of their sound is rooted in deep sonic exploration with a focus on improvisational elements. With jams stretching well beyond the typical structures of their songs, fans have flocked to their live shows to experience the unique energy captured within each performance. A focus on blending genres with a deep foundation of patient groove building has helped craft a sound all their own. Formed in 2012 by happenstance, the band has been building an organic fanbase in the Southwestern United States through word of mouth ever since. As the secret has gotten out Spafford has moved onto national touring, sharing the stage on a coast to coast tour with jam heavyweights Umphrey’s Mcgee in 2017. Reaching the next level in their ascent in an ever changing jam band landscape, Spafford has risen to the top of the next wave of acts by providing quality improvisation and a truly unique musical experience. Spafford has hit the road full time and is bringing their high energy performances nationwide. web: http://www.spafford.net/vid: https://youtu.be/awjw8CRBeQA

Davis has coined the genre "Grass-Hop/Future-Folk" to describe his unique sound - ranging from feel good, blue-grassy tunes, to spacey, soulful electronic beats that can rock a late-night dance tent. Combining forward thinking and versatility, Vibe Street is providing music fans across all spectrums with the refreshing dose of originality that they so desperately crave.vid: https://youtu.be/EhUU8aYqT48web: http://vibestreetmusic.com/Robbie DudeEach time I get behind my computer and controllers, I want to convey a piece of myself.

They might call themselves Ragged Union, but there’s nothing ragged about the bluegrass produced by this Boulder, Colorado-based sextet of accomplished players — two of whom, flatpicking guitarist/vocalist Geoff Union and vocalist Christina Union, are also united as husband and wife (and chief songwriters). They’re joined by champion mandolinist/vocalist Jordan Ramsey, award-winning banjo player Chris Elliott, fiddler extraordinaire Justin Hoffenberg, and bluegrass expert, Dave Richey, on upright bass. Together, they mix traditional and contemporary bluegrass, both respecting and challenging convention with adventurous lyrics, rhythmic flights and unique arrangements. Ragged Union will be performing songs from their upcoming sophomore release, Time Captain, as well as numbers from their 2015 debut, Hard Row to Hoe, and select standards and covers. Like many bands these days, there’s something borrowed and something new about Ragged Union’s sound. There are recognizable bluegrass melodies and country lyric themes alongside non-traditional lyric, rhythmic and arrangement ideas; Breakneck grassy duet numbers, and slower ‘country-funk’ tunes; traditional arrangements alongside composed ideas and the occasional ‘jam’ section.

Genre: Funk/RockCover: $15.00 ADV // $18.00 DOS Show: 8PM ( 7PM Doors)Ages: 21+Moon HoochIt was two years ago that the band released ‘This Is Cave Music,’ an exhilarating thrill ride that earned rave reviews from critics and fans alike. NPR hailed it as “unhinged” and “irresistible,” praising each musician’s “remarkable abilities” and naming their Tiny Desk Concert one of the best in the prestigious series’ history. The album followed their 2013 debut, which had Relix swooning for their “deep bass lines, catchy melodies and pounding rhythms,” while the Wall Street Journal celebrated their “electronic house music mixed with brawny saxophone riffs.” Though the band—whose members initially met as students at the New School—turned heads in the music industry as relative unknowns with a charismatic, unconventional sound (they play with unique tonguing techniques and utilize found objects like traffic cones attached to the bells of their horns to manipulate tone, for instance), they were already a familiar and beloved sight to straphangers in New York, who would react with such joy and fervor to their impromptu subway platform sets that the NYPD had to ban them from locations that couldn’t handle the crowds. NY Mag once referred to their sound as “Jay Gatsby on ecstasy,” while the NY Post fell for their “catchy melodic hooks and funky rhythms,” saying they had “the power to make you secretly wish that the short [subway] wait becomes an indefinite delay.”While the band’s busking days are behind them now, the lessons they learned from all those platform parties helped guide their approach to recording ‘Red Sky.’“What we discovered playing in the subway,” McGowen explains, “is that the more focus and the more energy you put into the music, and the more you listen to everything around you and integrate everything around you into your expression, the more the music becomes this captivating force for people.”Recorded at The Bunker studio in Brooklyn, ‘Red Sky’ is nothing if not captivating. The album opens with the tribal urgency of the title track and proceeds, over the next 45 minutes, to utterly demolish any and every possible barrier that could stand between your ass and the dance floor. On ‘Shot,’ Wilbur sings a stream of consciousness vocal line over an airtight groove, while “Psychotubes” channels the apocalyptic fire and brimstone of death metal, and the staccato intro of “That’s What They Say” gives way to a gritty, late-night come-on of a saxophone line that’s far more suggestive than any whispered words ever could be.web: https://www.moonhooch.com/vid: https://youtu.be/yUEapzqptIAMarco BeneventoFor more than a decade pianist Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive body of work. His studio albums and live performances set forth a vision that connects the dots in the vast space between LCD Soundsystem and Leon Russell, pulsating with dance rock energy, but with smart, earthy songwriting to match. It has led to numerous high profile appearances, ranging from Carnegie Hall to Pickathon, Mountain Jam to Treefort Festival, while headlining shows coast to coast.Marco Benevento’s latest studio LP, 'The Story of Fred Short,' and its companion live release, 'The Woodstock Sessions,' is some of his finest and most adventurous work to date—a maestro making "bold indie rock" says Brooklyn Vegan, while the LA Times raves, “Benevento continues to straighten his twisted sound into the guise of an indie-rock singer-songwriter, harnessing his inventive sonic palette into rewardingly bite-size pop songs that touch on disco and soul." Honing his psych rock and late night dance party sensibilities, the recordings find the pianist citing everything from Harry Nilsson, Manu Chau and Gorillaz as inspiration.Anybody who's seen Marco Benevento perform will attest, with eyes closed, smile wide across his face and fingers free-flowing across the keys, he's a satellite to the muse. With a devout and growing fan-base, Benevento is an artist whose story is only beginning to unfold.web: http://marcobenevento.com/vid: https://youtu.be/TSbV2ltgyNg

"I realized I'mthe only person that is going to look out for me. I have to be my main person. No one else."Jessica Lea Mayfield might make some people uncomfortable with the level of honesty she projectson her forthcoming LP, Sorry Is Gone, but she's not going to apologize – for that, or for anything elseon her complex, confessional fourth album. Recorded with producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, KurtVile, Phosphorescent and Dinosaur Jr.), Sorry Is Gone is a raw document of a woman in progress;one weathering cruel storms but finally able to blame the rain itself for the flood. Written as the truthof her own poisonous marriage unfolded before her eyes, Sorry Is Gone is a record of permission.Permission to create freely, to escape what is no longer safe and to stop bearing responsibility forthings done to her, not by her. As Mayfield sings on the title track, "the sorry is gone." Indeed, it is;kicked to the curb with every strum of her guitar.Written in the years since her last solo LP, Make My Head Sing, in 2014, and her 2015 collaborationwith Seth Avett, Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith, Sorry Is Gone became thesoundtrack to a highly personal and traumatic story. The Ohio-born Mayfield was quietly enduringyears of domestic abuse, smiling and touring while she hid a brewing tempest – and the bruises, too.But lyrics don't lie even as bruises fade, and they started to tell the tale of her marriage before shewas even able to; songs often dark and dangerous and ready to confront and claim her life. Written primarily on an acoustic baritone guitar – out of necessity at first, in her thin-walled apartment -Mayfield started to process the years of hurt and uncertainly through words and melodies that helpedher see the light in the darkness.Though much of Make My Head Sing was written music-first, Sorry Is Gone began with those lyrics,and, so often, a path forward unfolded itself as the songs formed. "The cold hard truth is you love metoo much," she sings on "Meadow," a moody, echoey moment about finally realizing someone's truecolors. "The cold hard truth is you couldn't love me enough." It's a brutal line from someone whorefuses to be victimized. Evoking the pathos of nineties grunge, the folk confessions of her idol,Smith, and the cool blasé of bands like Luscious Jackson, the tracks that comprise Sorry Is Gonearen’t devised to make anyone comfortable but herself – but they are there to help share anemotional journal and a certain kind of healing that can only come through music."I have to sing about things and write about things that have happened to me as therapy," saysMayfield, who shaped so many of these songs in the isolation of the small apartment she sharedwith her husband while their marriage fell apart in her hands – in many ways, those songs pointed tothe way out before she could get there herself. "That's what connects me to other music I listen to. Iwant music to make me feel things. This is my inner dialogue, and my chance to get the last word."Recorded with Agnello at Water Music and Electric Lady Studios, Mayfield recruited a stellar groupof musicians for Sorry Is Gone, including Avett on backing vocals and keys, drummer Steve Shelley(Sonic Youth, Sun Kil Moon), bassist Emil Amos (Grails, Holy Sons), guitarist Cameron Deyell (Sia,Streets of Laredo) and Patrick Damphier (The Mynabirds, Field Days, who produced and played on"Offa My Hands"). Together, they worked to create an ominous take on love, where hope can existamong heartbreak and the end is only as finite as we make it to be. On songs like the title track and"Bum Me Out," Mayfield bends the angelic notes of her voice over off-kilter orchestration, building anenvironment of warrior-style triumph; on "Safe 2 Connect 2," she takes stock of the digital world to ahaunting, acoustic backdrop that gives a subtle ode to her bluegrass roots."Been though hell, there's no telling what might happen in my future," she sings. "All I can do is bethankful for each moment that's my own."Mayfield has paved an unconventional lifestyle – playing in her family's bluegrass band since theage of eight, she didn't have any traditional schooling and released her first album at the age offifteen, when she was discovered by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. Influenced by everything fromthat mountain sound to the modern garage, Mayfield has been able to come at songwriting from apure perspective, lead more by her heart than any textbook. It's what makes the tracks of Sorry IsGone so striking and visceral – there is no filter on the emotions, no rulebook and certainly noexcuses for anything she's been through or the candor she fires."I'm not going to bite my lip on anything," she says. "If there is one thing I am going to do, it's talkand sing about what I want to. No one is going to manipulate me."The sorry is gone, once and for all – and Sorry Is Gone is a permission slip for anyone who wants tostop apologizing for others, and start living for themselves.

$20 ADV / $22 DOSPerformances by The New Mastersounds THE NEW MASTERSOUNDS In the late 1990’s, guitarist and producer Eddie Roberts was running a club night in Leeds called “The Cooker.” When The Cooker moved into a new venue with a second floor in 1999, there was space and the opportunity to put a live band together to complement the DJ sets. Simon Allen and Eddie had played together in 1997 as The Mastersounds, though with a different bassist and no organ. Through friends and the intimate nature of the Leeds music scene, Pete Shand and Bob Birch were added on bass and Hammond respectively, and The New Mastersounds were born. Though it was raw, and more of a boogaloo sound at first, it was powerful from the start. Their first rehearsal was hot enough for Blow it Hard Records to release on two limited-edition 7” singles in 2000. Fast-forward 15 years and the recorded catalogue boasts 24 more 7” singles, 9 studio albums, 2 live albums, 1 remix album and 3 compilation albums, released variously in UK, USA and Japan, where they continue to tour extensively. Joe Tatton, another veteran of the Leeds scene, joined back in 2007, replacing Bob Birch on organ and piano. As a band, and as individuals, they have collaborated or jammed with an impressive array of musicians DJs and producers, including: Lou Donaldson (Blue Note), Corinne Bailey Rae (EMI), Quantic (Tru Thoughts), Carleen Anderson (Young Disciples / Brand New Heavies), Keb Darge & Kenny Dope (Kay Dee Records), John Arnold (Ubiquity), Mr Scruff (Ninja Tune), Snowboy (Ubiquity), Fred Everything (2020vision), Andy Smith (Portishead), James Taylor (JTQ), LSK (Faithless), Lack of Afro (Freestyle), Page McConnell (Phish), Grace Potter, Karl Denson (The Rolling Stones / Lenny Kravitz), Melvin Sparks (Blue Note Records), Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis & Maceo Parker (JB’s), George Porter Junior, Zigaboo Modeliste,Art Neville (The Meters) and Ernest Ranglin. As an example of the respect this band commands, Peter Wermelinger - DJ, collector, and author of the crate-diggers’ bible The Funky & Groovy Music Lexicon - places the 2001 NMS track ‘Turn This Thing Around’ in his all-time top-ten tunes, along with the likes of Eddie Harris, Funkadelic, and Herbie Hancock. The New Mastersounds are at the very top of an elite selection of acts that bring the true soul out of funk.

Genre: Electronic/Hip-HopCover: Donations @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+BEAT LIFEBEAT LIFE is an event series showcasing talent from the South. Based in Asheville, NCXero GodXero God is Musashi Xero (Tyler Jackson) and Panther God (Paul Gaeta). Musashi Xero plays fast and smooth on the mic, creating acerbic ryhmes delivered through his jazz-inflected voice. Equal parts urban poet and mountain mystic, his words combine razor-sharp social critique, invocations of landscapes both natural and fantastic, and an irreverent playfulness that gives new cadence to the universal experiences of love and loss. Panther God lays down the beats, synthesizing elements from hip hop, jazz, soul, and experimental electronic sounds to manifest chromatic bursts of synesthetic sounds that cascade between layers of melodic complexity and angular grooving percussion. Xero God is their collaborative brain-child. As Xero God, they invite us on a journey through hallucinatory dream visions that careen down neon-lit midnight streets and soar to interplanetary heights. The sound is gritty but transcendent as Musashi Xero's verses punctuate Panther God's worlds of sound. The universe of Xero God is deeply chill and uncompromisingly imaginative, the sounds lush and evocative, echoing through innermost space and resonating across the mind's eye.web: http://www.xerogod.com/tunes: https://xerogod.bandcamp.com/KoresmaIn September of 2013, Ryan Lindberg’s experimental electronic project, Koresma, released its debut EP, “Back Home”. Originally inspired by an old photograph taken by his father in the 1980’s, Koresma incorporates guitar, home recordings, samples, and down tempo beats to recreate and reinterpret a sonic image of this pleasantly aged photo. A quote from a college professor describes the listening experience as, “A mixture of organic sounds and gritty electronic textures, utilizing real instruments and voices to give the listener a refreshingly human view of the electronic music landscape". The concepts and techniques used in “Back Home” prove to be a starting point for Koresma’s sound, and with heavily influence from many different genres, the musical possibilities for the future are extensive.web: http://www.koresmamusic.com/tunes: https://koresma.bandcamp.com/Cpt. HyperDrivePassion and intensity define Cpt. HyperDrive's personality, and his music.Born in Bogota, Colombia, Cpt. HyperDrive (Robert Gray) was adopted and raised in Long Island. His upbringing in NY brought him to love hip hop and the NYC "Golden Age" sound. Always having a passion for music, but no formal training, Hyperdrive bought a sampler and turntable, and took his shot at creating beats. HyperDrive started producing in 2007, slicing vinyl samples and programming drums on his MPC. After graduating college, HyperDrive realized his dreams to become a musician. Hungry to perfect his craft, he enrolled and graduated from an audio engineering school (REI) on LI. During this time, he was introduced to electronic music thru his friend and fellow BomBassic producer, Brucey B. This vastly changed his perspective on music and how his sound would develop.His fascination with bass music and all its sub-genres incited HyperDrive to learn the production techniques of EDM and implement elements of dubstep, glitch hop, trance, house and more into his sound. HyperDrive's production has evolved and now features chopped and looped samples of funk, jazz, rock, blues, classical and soul combined with blistering digital basslines, laser synths, and of course, hard hitting drums. Progression is the key to HyperDrive's production. Varying tempos, life like drum patterns, new melodies, and a plethora of samples are introduced constantly throughout his tracks to keep them fresh and exciting. HyperDrive's evolution from boom bap beatsmith to EDM producer has come full circle and he is ready to throw dance floors into a frenzy in 2012! Once you hear his music and experience his live set, you will understand why he is known as Cpt. HyperDrive.tunes: https://soundcloud.com/cpthyperdrive

They have built a name for themselves nationally, following years of touring and high profile sets at major festivals. The band is as strong in composing as they are at communicating and improvising during their shows. Their onstage persona is infectious and undeniable; their lifelong friendship stands as a testament to the tightness of the music. While the band is relatively young, they are polished - check them out as soon as you can, and discover firsthand what the buzz is all about. vid: https://youtu.be/xBV_gFwH6SE web: https://aqueousband.com/ Deja Fuze The story of Deja Fuze began one cold winter day in January 2009, in Buffalo, NY. The original four (Jake & Josh Cavinder, Keith Harry, Joe Lewis) came together that day for a jam session, but what came out ended being Some Sort of Green, the very first song the group ever put forward. It was from that moment they knew, this was the band they were searching for. For Deja Fuze, 2009 was the year of growth and definition. As they played shows around the Western New York area at venues such as The Tralf Music Hall, Nietzche's, Weekend Off Festival, and Utica Music Fest they turned heads and made marks wherever they went. That first year of not stop drive and creativity built the Fuze up for the big year that was 2010. Not only did Jeff Miers –Buffalo News music writer- name them one of the best Buffalo bands of the decade, 2010 also saw the band move to their new home of Asheville, NC. Deja Fuze then had their sites on igniting crowds throughout Western North Carolina. Moving to Asheville has brought many new experiences to the Deja Fuze cast and crew. Many unforgettable and powerful shows were played -at venues such as Asheville Music Hall, Pisgah Brewing Co, The Altamont Theatre, and Fall Ball/Spring Fling Festival- a revolving group of members came and went, their first record Some Sort of Green (09/2016) was recorded and released, and a transformation took place not only within the members themselves, but in the music that had been created. You can still expect the same sounds of Fuze past, but with a added maturity, precision, layer, and passion injected into the songwriting and stage presence. Joining original members Jake & Josh Cavinder and Keith Harry in Deja Fuze 2.0 are Zach Sykes, and Jason Hazinski. The now Deja Five is setting out on a mission to Oscillate Your Life. web: http://www.dejafuze.com/ vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzdb2lBlL1M&t=756s

Based out of Nashville, the band has constructed a sound that aims to catch the listener off guard, seamlessly shifting from powerful intensity to quiet, careful stillness, and back again. For The Fire - Since their formation in the fall of 2015, For The Fire has been taking the local Indianapolis music scene by storm with their blend of post-hardcore/alternative sounding styles. Founded when vocalist Addison Rider met up with drummer Justin Whitlow at a local punk rock show, For The Fire has been pursuing their claim to fame (after picking up bassist Jesse Barnes and lead guitarist Tyler Antal) with fervent perseverance and are making an alarming impact. Although they have only been a band for a litle over a year, For The Fire has already generated a mass amount of local buzz in Indianapolis, released music on virtually every online music distributor (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc.) and have also released physical copies in various Indiana record stores. They have also gone on tour, and have had multiple opportunities to open up for several widely known acts such as I Prevail, Icon For Hire, Eyes Set To Kill, SayWeCanFly, Foreveratlast, The Nearly Deads, Farewell, My Love, and more, all with members only between 18-19 years old. Bri & The Astrotones - Bri & the Astrotones is an alternative pop experience. Bri is a singer/songwriter with a spunky attitude and a quirky free-sprit. She brings a cosmic PUNCH into pop! Bri writes surprisingly deep and story-centric songs that are incredibly relatable and catchy. The Astrotones are the inspirations provided by the Universe. Tides - midwest emo influenced indie rock from Asheville || Poet Radio - Poet Radio began in a Northern Michigan basement, when two former members of The Vermeers, frontwoman and songwriter Madison Maxwell and drummer Ryan Cole got together to turn some of the former's original acoustic songs into something poppy and electric. Since adding North Carolina native, bassist Kevin Freeman, the band's sound has evolved into something a bit darker, often described as occult psych. However, there's still a strong pop sensibility in much of the music they're writing these days. These songs are danceable, singable, and memorable, despite covering topics like witchcraft, drugs, politics, and bondage. If you're a fan of the Zombies, the Doors, the Black Angels, Siouxsie and the Banshees, or even the White Stripes, check out Poet Radio. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and expect a new EP mid-summer 2017! Mr. Mange - Words like indie, rock and alternative get thrown around in modern music in too vague a fashion, but at their heart invoke the epitome of newness and originality. These terms are a much better way to describe the powerhouse of sound that Mr. Mange brings to the table. Founded on the basis of a swirling variety of influences, Mr. Mange brings a sound as fresh as the band itself.

They are geniuses at the craft of interpretation in the way that great singers, since the beginning of popular American music, have made the songs of their era their own. As songwriters they add their own tunes to the canon of American roots music they inhabit and show us they’re completely at home with their musical selves.Grammy winner Mollie has long been known as a singer who doesn’t recognize a lot of musical boundaries, and audiences love her fluid ability to make herself at home in any genre while never sacrificing the essence of the song she tackles. She is a singer at the very top of her game who’s not afraid to take risks both vocally and in the material she chooses. Rich, while known to produce some of the funniest onstage running commentary, is also a powerhouse guitar player who can keep up with O’Brien’s twists and turns from blues to traditional folk to jazz to rock and roll.He creates a band with just his guitar and, as a result, theirs is an equal partnership.Their latest release is Love Runner on Remington Road Records.
