Bayou-born soul sensation, Durand Jones got his start in the church, after being forced to sing in the choir of his rural hometown Hillaryville, Louisiana because his Grandmother thought he sang too much at home. When his music career took him to Bloomington, Indiana, he was selected to join the legendary Indiana University Soul Revue, and it was through his involvement that he met writer/producer duo Aaron Frazer and Blake Rhein. The three began writing original soul music, recording themselves straight to tape in the basements of Bloomington - and their debut album is now available on our record label, Colemine Records.

A Muslim, a Jew, and a Christian walk into a concert hall… …and put on a great concert together, modeling their mutual respect and affection, entertaining listeners, and creating music that is strengthened by their diversity, rather than hindered by it. These three musicians of the three Abrahamic faiths, each of whom has performed extensively and put out many CDs of original music, team up to play together as Abraham Jam. They don't just take turns sharing songs, but create music together, contributing vocal harmonies, percussion, and instrumentation to each other’s songs. Join David LaMotte, Dawud Wharnsby, and Billy Jonas for an unforgettable night of music, conversation, and harmony. Saturday, August 26th, 2017 at The Asheville Masonic Temple. Doors open at 7pm, and the concert starts at 8pm. There will be a brief intermission. Tickets are general admission. $25 in advance and $28 at the door. (Online sales will end on August 25th, 2017.) Snacks and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase in the lobby from Fox Tasket Picnic Baskets & The Hop Ice Cream Cafe. -- Dawud Wharnsby is an insightful and passionate musician based in Toronto, Canada. He sings beautifully-crafted original songs on guitar and mandolin. Billy Jonas is an accomplished percussionist, guitar player, pianist, and songwriter, with infectiously whimsical songs and a knack for inspiring audiences to join in. David LaMotte is a well-loved songwriter, with over 3000 concerts on five continents and every state in the U.S. on his musical resumé, his guitars and drums in tow. Together, they make up the Abraham Jam, a band of brothers. The band was originally formed in 2010, in an effort to foster interfaith respect and cooperation, with Dan Nichols, an accomplished Jewish musician, in the spot Billy Jonas holds now. Their first concert was at Duke University. David LaMotte was working with the North Carolina Council of Churches at the time, and originally came up with the concept. He approached campus Jewish, Muslim, and Christian student organizations in the area and put together an interfaith student committee that chose which musicians would be involved, as well as the name of the band. Since that original Duke University concert, Abraham Jam has performed for the Festival of the Sacred Arts in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and for the 2016 Parliament of World Religions in Salt Lake City, UT, among other events and venues. Plans have begun to record an album together, in support of more extensive touring. Abraham Jam makes a strong case that harmony is better than unity — that we don’t have to be singing the same note to cultivate peace, we can sing different notes that are beautiful together.

Deep River

LinksAtlanta-born and raised singer-songwriter and former drummer Sharon Lewis founded Deep River in the summer of 1992 in Connecticut and was joined in late 1992 by Connecticut native, Sandy Howard, an accomplished singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist; together they moved to Nashville in April 1993 where they spent a decade pursuing a major label record deal. While there Sandy and Sharon recorded two CDs of original material, contributed to a compilation CD of women artists, and co-wrote eight songs, two of which, 'Civil War' and 'Silver Eagle', received “Honorable Mention” from Music Row magazine's country music historian, Robert K. Oermann. After hearing Deep River sing their song, 'Remember Always', live on the Bell Buckle (Tennessee) Jamboree Radio Show, local resident and Country Music Hall of Famer, Charlie Louvin of The Louvin Brothers, told the vocal group, "I'd like to hear y'all play that song on the Grand Ole Opry." Although they haven't yet had that opportunity, Deep River did get to sing with another member of the Country Music HOF, Vince Gill, and opened for country star Mark Wills as well as the 'Mother of Bluegrass', Wilma Lee Cooper. In the end, though, the record deal never materialized.

Drawn by the Blue Ridge Mountains, inclusive culture and folk art tradition Lewis and Howard moved to Asheville in April 2003. In 2007 Lewis picked up the bass guitar and with Howard began recruiting the current line-up starting with vocalist, Joan D’Entremont in February 2007 with whom we create our signature three-part harmonies, followed by multi-instrumentalist Gerry Brown on dobro, rhythm guitar and pedal steel; in-demand drummer and Asheville Music School instructor, Justin Watt joined in 2008, followed by in-demand lead guitarist and AMS instructor, Alec Fehl in 2016. Deep River made its Asheville debut in August 2007, and will celebrate its 10th Anniversary at The Grey Eagle on Saturday, August 26th, which will also benefit the Asheville Humane Society! As a bonus Deep River will be joined that night by guest artists Bob Bencze, keyboardist with The Bill Mattocks Band, and Joe Trimbach, fiddler-mandolinist with Bobby & Blue Ridge Tradition.

To make this evening a special celebration Deep River will be be performing 80's and 90's country music by Patty Loveless, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Highway 101, Kathy Mattea and The Forester Sisters PLUS the greatest hits of the EAGLES and LINDA RONSTADT and a few of our Nashville originals like 'Civil War' as played on KISS Country 99 right here in Asheville.

All Ages - 12 and under requires venue approval

The contradictions in John Butler are evident, and, despite his magnificently successful career (with number one albums in Australia and sell-out tours) his is a troubled soul. One of the most successful recording artists Australia has ever produced and a musician whose reputation has begun to rock the waters of both Europe and America, Butler is nevertheless a man on the edge, poised like a beautiful suicide. Where will he go next? Up or down? Despite the tensions within the man and his music the new album makes his future trajectory abundantly clear.

An independent role model, founder of Australia’s Jarrah Records, family man and proud skateboard aficionado, JB, in spite of his matey public persona, remains an enigma. He is from everywhere and nowhere, an Australian/American, Everyman/Nowhere Man, and his music mixes rootedness and rootlessness, pain and celebration in a way that is utterly beguiling. He is the consummate rebel-refugee whose songs chart disenchantment with the corporate world and show a yearning for truth along with an ongoing struggle for a sense of locus. The songs’ off-centre grooves have always been their charm, and yet now there is a sense, in the new album at least, of resolution and peace after years of being against the world and what it offered. Maybe the man on the brink will not jump after all?

The Past

Born in California and of mixed Australian, Greek and Bulgarian ancestry, Butler began his musical career in classic if tentative style. The narrative arc is well-known Down Under. An art-school dropout, he was ‘discovered’ busking in 1996, bystanders marvelling at ‘the sweat flying off his brow’ and ‘the holy madness in his eyes’. The tape of these early compositional soundscapes Searching for Heritage gave an inkling of where Butler was going, reaching as it did both forwards and backwards in time, conversant with all genres and yet somehow defining its own. The sound had, and still has, elements of folk, funk, reggae and rock all drizzled through the 90s Seattle sensibility. Behind all that there was a wistful Celtic ambience surreally counterpointed by a Jamaican roots/rudeboy vibe. What could have been a mess somehow made perfect sense, with the bluegrass fingerpicking, hip hop beats and psychedelic wig-outs proving not uneasy bedfellows but perfect complements.

Now

On Flesh & Blood it goes even further, yet with a restraint that bespeaks a deepening maturity. There are dirty Stevie Wonder-style boogies, ghostly refrains that could come from Simon and Garfunkel, sonic poltergeists which seem, at times, to resemble lost rock classics. In the hands of a lesser man this would be mere thievery dressed up as ‘eclecticism’. But Butler is a maestro – he takes his influences and transcends them. He creates a sound that is as ancient as aboriginal bone-art and yet as modern as your Twitter feed. He has been hailed as one of the world’s greatest guitarists, a musician’s musician, one whose sound offers not three chords and the truth but a thousand. His prestidigitation is astounding. An old song like “Ocean,” for example, has chalked up 30 million Youtube hits, and not just with guitar freaks studying his technique. The new album has songs that are less expansive and more ‘reined in’, but the playing is all the more impressive for being more tightly corralled. Less sometimes really is more.

Flesh & Blood may be his best yet. In parts it is simply overwhelming. The album has captured that elusive thing: soul. Butler has spoken in interviews of his songs being like ‘wild horses, wild beasts’ and you can see what he means. Songs, he says, come from the ‘ether’, from a savage hinterland: they must be caught without breaking their spirit. A ‘song-capturer’, Butler’s job has been not to tame those horses but to present their wildness. His myth of composition evokes the timeless expanse of both the Aussie Outback and the American West, and he and his fellow band members have been at pains to honour the songs as independent things that belong to no one, least of all themselves.

Arising from a series of agenda-free jams in Butler’s studio ‘The Compound’ in Fremantle, (Australia) the album took a mere 20 days to record and, though beautifully structured in sonic terms, there is a rawness and honesty to the album that reflects the brevity of its laying down. The songs have a wide-open, semi-improvised feel. The crisp and beautifully spare production of Jan Skubiszewski accentuates the sense of limitless space: the drums (courtesy of the aptly named Nicky Bomba) kick with dub explosions, while the bass (‘Lord’ Byron Luiters) goes on inspired transient walkabouts. Butler’s voice, free of the ‘anger’ that has dogged him for so long, now soars with both melancholy and plangent purity. “Wings are Wide” evokes rainforests: it is drenched in dizzying guitar loops in which the listener is enmeshed and lifted timelessly elsewhere. “Spring to Come” could be a classic, Butler’s acrylic fingernails plucking more of their extraordinary patterns. “Blame it on Me” is a cocky peacock-strut juxtaposed with dark references to apocalyptic ‘heavy times’. “Young and Wild” has the simple beauty of a song – a down home-country feel offset by the gorgeous shadowing of female vocalist Ainslie Wills. “How You Sleep at Night” is a hypnotically anthemic piece featuring the ferocious drumming of new man Grant Gerathy; Bomba having jumped ship (albeit amicably) to front his own Melbourne Ska Orchestra. The synth-anchored “You’re Free” sounds like its title: it is as if the composer, haunted by righteous ire, has taken flight, escaping earthly confines but not flying too close to the sun. New single “Only One” shows a new maturity in pop craftsmanship. The quiet/loud dynamic is beautifully exploited yet again. A simple three note refrain and rolling storm-cloud drums establishes a minor key mood: a place of ‘castles built out of sand’ and ‘something haunting’ the protagonist. But then the chorus erupts with steel drum euphoria transporting the listener to what sounds like Africa — a third world of ecstatic being. That is the JB trick par excellence: the shift from fireside ballad to communal dance, from private to public, from doubt to assertion.

Home Again

With Flesh & Blood, Butler has come full circle. Searching for Heritage led ultimately to April Uprising, an album that delved into Butler’s family history, one in which ethnic Bulgarians (Butler’s kin) rose up in 1876 against the tyrannical Ottoman Empire that had suppressed them. John’s own name derives from his paternal grandfather, a forestry worker who died fighting a bushfire in Nannup, Oz. From these historical titbits we glean some inkling of the artist. He is a man fighting for justice, a man fighting fires — those of love gone bad, of corporate greed, or simply of his own angry soul. As Butler has confessed in a recent interview, “I thought my anger was my strongest asset and that’s what made me powerful, but it was actually my weakest link. My vulnerability, my honesty and patience and trust are my strongest attributes.” The album bears this out. As Butler has matured the anger has been sublimated in poetry, and his voice, on the tender love songs especially, has become his outstanding instrument.

Flesh & Blood is a testament to his talent, and to a man who has finally found himself. On some songs he sounds simply reborn. “I wanted the songs to be a lot more guttural and fleshier,” says a newly humble JB. “I wanted to smell it and feel it a bit more. And I wanted my voice, now and always, to be more convincing.” If it’s authenticity he was seeking he has surely found it.

If he has been a ‘man on the edge’ he is certainly not going to jump and end it all. He now has the wisdom and the courage to take a step back – and enjoy the view.

John Butler is no pie-in-the-sky hippy. He has dirt beneath his feet: red dirt. He is well-known Down Under for his environmental and political commitment. His white Rasta look once suggested a teleported Bob Marley – but that has gone. The more recent barbered image makes him look like a handsome American from the Civil War era. His stare is hypnotic. Who will draw first, you or him? He is not, however, all gun and no trousers. He has put his money where his mouth is, fronting a campaign that helped stop a vast gas plant from despoiling the natural beauty of the Kimberley area in NW Australia. He has also set up a charitable trust that has enabled many aspiring artists to find an outlet. He is a man who cares about the world he is in and one who has tried, in his own way, to set in right.

Alex’s strange and wonderful voice at times fastens so closely to Gramig’s harmony, while the other-worldly lap steel, gritty watery electric guitar, and upright bass are all held together by Bill Berg’s expansive groove.

Growing up in Greensboro, North Carolina, Wood gravitated to the upright bass. He studied jazz in college, playing in small combos and big bands, and then felt drawn to old time and bluegrass music. He started the band Mipso with a few friends, in the process learning to reconcile his jazz roots with his new folk foundation. After college his band hit the road. From dive bars to old theaters, from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine, 2014 and 2015 brought hundreds of shows and more oil changes than most people need in a decade. Wood half-jokingly called himself a "professional driver with a night gig." Truth be told, he was learning from the scenes outside the van window, gradually hearing songs take shape. As the highways of America started feeling more familiar than Chapel Hill, Wood was collecting images and characters. Every geography offered a new setting; each stranger implied another narrative. These kernels of road stories -- the lonely woman on a Tulsa barstool, a bright green yard in Santa Fe, the feeling of leaving home in the rain -- made their way into lyrics. Drawing equally from jazz grooves and the spare storytelling of folk, the songs offered Wood a new vehicle to develop his understanding of the places he was exploring--as well as his own songwriting voice. Each story may be incomplete, each narrator imperfect, but together the songs offer both crystal-clear snapshots and a panoramic blur: a vision of the country in motion, of Wood's view through a tour van window.Eleanor Underhill & Friends:Genre-bending grooves, thoughtful original compositions, and cover songs you would never expect from a banjo-fronted band.

John called me about playing with the Mountain Goats in 2001.

Not for the first time, mind you. I’d signed on for a couple European tours in 1996, playing bass; the first had gone swimmingly and led to a second, which didn’t. Still, a foundation had been laid: John and I, already close friends, had developed over the course of those tours a musical chemistry strong enough that, even five years later, we were still bummed that the only people who got to see it were a handful of indifferent Bavarian villagers. “ Do you want to do some recording?” John asked. Yeah, I said. We should totally do some recording.

It turned out to be a fateful conversation. Not more than a week or two later, the venerable London indie 4AD got in touch, and we found ourselves suddenly charged with making an album. In a studio. With a producer.

We spent an intense week at Dave Fridmann’s Tarbox Road, with Glasgow’s Tony Doogan at the board. There was some give and take. I loved the Mountain Goats, but I’d heard ten years’ worth of boombox Mountain Goats albums and wanted to swing for the fences. John was game while insisting that certain defining orthodoxies be preserved. We met in the middle and were both pretty ecstatic with the result: we felt like we’d gone out on a limb, but in a way that stayed true to the spirit of the project. And then Tallahassee came out and we got to read a bunch of articles about our new lo-fi album.

Indefatigable in our efforts to escape the legacy of the Mountain Goats’ home-recorded past, over the course of the eight albums that followed we would exploit the production and engineering skills of meticulous sonic architects like John Vanderslice and Scott Solter, become even more of a band with the addition of Superchunk’s Jon Wurster on drums in 2007, and flesh out our songs with string and horn arrangements bordering on the Bacharachian.

With Matt Douglas fully on board as woodwinds-and-kitchen-sink guy, we’re now a four-piece, and to record this album, our fourth for Merge and the one to which you’re presumably about to listen, we went to Blackbird Studio in Nashville, as top-shelf a facility as any on the planet. They have the board Aja was recorded on. When Jon asked about snares, he was told, “ We have 200 of them.” We had sixteen people from the Nashville Symphony Chorus skip out on a Mahler rehearsal to come in and sing on a song. Sixteen!

The theme this time around is goth, a subject closer to my heart perhaps than that of any Mountain Goats album previous. And while John writes the songs, as he always has, it feels more than ever like he’s speaking for all of us in the band, erstwhile goths (raises hand) or otherwise, for these are songs that approach an identity most often associated with youth from a perspective that is inescapably adult. Anyone old enough to have had the experience of finding oneself at sea in a cultural landscape that’s suddenly indecipherable will empathize with Pat Travers showing up to a Bauhaus show looking to jam, for example.

But underneath the outward humor, there is evident throughout a real tenderness toward, and solidarity with, our former fellow travelers—the friends whose bands never made it out of Fender’s Ballroom, the Gene Loves Jezebels of the world—the ones whose gothic paths were overtaken by the realities of life, or of its opposite. It’s something we talk about a lot, how fortunate and
grateful we are to share this work, a career that’s become something more rewarding and fulfilling than I think any of us could have imagined. We all know how easily it could’ve gone the other way, and indeed for a long time did.

Maybe that’s why John entrusted me with writing the coda to his song about a guy fed up with his major label bosses and contemplating packing it in. You know, the one I sang at the fancy recording studio, into a microphone worth more than I made in a year for most of my life.

Okay, I’m wasting my time, I know. And it’s fine—as far as inevitable fates go, I can think of far worse. Please, enjoy Goths, the new album by those preeminent legends of lo-fi, the Mountain Goats!

All Ages | $5 Donation For a WristbandHeadliner: Drivin' N' Cryin'Support: Darrin Bradbury & Ouroboros Boys DRIVIN' N' CRYIN' Celebrating their 30th Anniversary together, Atlanta-based southern hard rock act Drivin n Cryin charges into 2015 with plans for a new studio release and a whole lot of touring!   With a gold record, 10 full-length albums and a handful of EPs to their credit, the band still refuses to rest on its laurels, adding Jason and the Scorchers axe man, Warner E. Hodges, to the lineup and continuing to tour the United States and Europe to great acclaim.  In 2015, a vinyl-only collection of 10 choice cuts from the band’s 4-EP “Songs” series, entitled Best of Songs, will be released on Nashville’s Plowboy Records. Comfortable with their past and confident in their future, the band has an arsenal of songs, a full tank of gas, and no plans of stopping any time soon.  DARRIN BRADBURY Darrin Bradbury is an American satirist. A left-of-center folk singer. With a batch of songs that celebrate the humor and heartbreak of everyday American life, he’s spent the past decade traveling his way across the country, making pit stops at dive bars, listening rooms, punk houses, and world-class theaters along the way. The people he’s met during his cross-country trips — the seedy characters filling America’s underbelly, the corporate elite working out of corner offices, the blue-collar "everymen" who refill our coffee cups and ring up our purchases at Office Depot — all find their way into his music, which follows the offbeat tradition of John Prine, Shell Silverstein and Steve Goodman. In May 2016, Rolling Stone named Darrin ‘one of the top 10 New Country Artists you need to know’. He has been touring this year in support of his latest record ‘Elmwood Park: A Slightly Melodic Audiobook’ which he released in the Fall of 2016 and immediately hit the road, including dates with Nashville rule breaker Margo Price. With a new record on the way in and plans to tour as much as possible, 2017 looks to be a busy year already! Darrin’s blend of satire and social commentary coupled with enormous talent makes for a raucous good time.  OUROBOROS BOYS "...lilting at its start and then heavy in moments. Ion rich melodies drift[ing] above murky psychedelic guitar parts that hint at both slack-key tunings and beach party horror films." -Alli Marshall (Mountain Xpress). Although the band is tagged most often as surf- influences can be heard from Santo and Johnny to Hawkwind. It's WEIRD reverb-dolloped instrumental music to feel good and bad to. Ouroboros Boys have had the distinct honor of sharing the stage with national acts such as Agent Orange, Man or Astroman, Southern Culture on the Skids and Kid Congo Powers (The Cramps) AND have served as the house band for several regular "tiki night" events in and around Asheville. The current lineup includes Mars Sigler and Benjamin Hatch in addition to founding members Sean Dail and Nicholas Marshall.

Genre: Bluegrass/AmericanaCover: $10 ADV // $15 DOSDoors: 9PMAge: 21+CabinetCabinet is a band with roots firmly planted in the Appalachian tradition. They wear their influences like badges, honoring the canon of roots, bluegrass, country, and folk, weaving these sounds into a patchwork Americana quilt. But this music isn’t romanticizing or rehashing the past. Cabinet makes it mark on today. The steady aim of their harmonies soar straight onto target each time, the soaring vocals giving voice to the story of each song. Their music takes the long way home, treating its listeners like passengers on a ride through scenic back roads. Their live shows are inclusive, celebratory, and community-building. Members Pappy Biondo (banjo, vocals), J.P. Biondo (mandolin, vocals), Mickey Coviello (acoustic guitar, vocals), Dylan Skursky (electric bass, double bass), Todd Kopec (fiddle, vocals) and Josh Karis (drums, percussion) all live and love music, and aren’t afraid to show it.Cabinet formed in 2006, bringing together players from various musical and personal backgrounds. Some of the members were barely old enough to drink legally, but their thirst for older music was unquenchable. Whether its rustic "American Beauty"-era Grateful Dead or old-timey bluegrass, Cabinet has digested it all. But that is not to say that Cabinet recreates older styles. No, this is music that might have its roots in the past, but it is current and vibrant, with a sense of celebrating the now.The band's 4th studio record, Cool River, is slated for a 10/13/17 release. This 8 song effort as recorded in late 2016 and early 2017 with renowned producer, Ben Collette at the helm. Fans can expect a much more electric energy from this record."The instrumentation may evoke the hills of Appalachia, but the vibe is more like the valleys of Neptune." - Relixweb: http://www.cabinetmusic.com/vid: https://youtu.be/NAbkwyZ4nbA

For nearly a decade, American Aquarium have spent the majority of their days on the road, burning through a sprawl of highways during the day and playing hours of raw, rootsy rock & roll at night. Sometimes, the job is a grind. Most times, it's a blessing. American Aquarium's songs, filled with biographical lyrics about last calls, lost love and long horizons, have always explored both sides of that divide. For every drunken night at the bar, there's a hangover in the morning. For every new relationship, there's the chance of a broken heart. It's that kind of honesty that sort of balance that makes the band's newest album, Wolves, their strongest release to date.And it nearly didn't happen. When American Aquarium traveled to Muscle Shoals to record Burn.Flicker.Die. in 2012, they were convinced the album would be their last. Even though they had enlisted the help of award-winning singer-songwriter Jason Isbell to produce the sessions, they were exhausted; weathered and whittled to the bone by more than a half-decade of heavy partying and heavier touring. To a small group of diehard fans, they were absolute rockstars but being rockstars to a cult audience doesn't always put food on your table or gas in your tank. BJ Barham, the band's frontman, was so poor that he'd been living out of a storage unit for months, unable to afford an apartment in the band's hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina.Clearly, something had to give. Maybe it was time to make one final album an album about failure, desperation and disillusionment and then throw in the towel.As fate would have it, Burn.Flicker.Die. eventually proved itself to be the band's most successful release to date. Critics loved it. Fans rallied behind it. Fast forward 2 years and almost 500 shows later, the band has traveled the world, quadrupled their fan base and reinvented their passion for the road. When the time came to record another album in June 2014, it only made sense to do something that celebrated survival rather than failure.The result? Wolves, which Barham describes as "the sound of a band firing on all cylinders". Produced by Megafaun's Brad Cook and recorded during a 20-day stay at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC, Wolves was funded entirely by American Aquarium's diehard fanbase. The album's 10 tracks represent a departure from the band's signature twang. Instead drawing more from the alternative rock sound that inspired their name almost a decade ago. Wolves blends the twang of the pedal steel with the dark, dirty swirl of two electric guitars, creating a sound that's fit for the roadhouse, the honky tonk and the dive bar. Barham has certainly spent time in all three, but now looks to brighter horizons in these new songs."I've always written about being the drunk guy at the bar at 2 a.m.," he admits. "I've written about the pick-up lines and the drinking and the drugs. This record is more personal than that. It's a coming of age record."It's also a record that reaffirms his faith in American Aquarium, a band he started in 2006. Since that time, more than 25 musicians have passed through the group's ranks. In recent years though, things have felt a lot more stable. Ryan Johnson, Bill Corbin, Whit Wright, Kevin McClain and the newest addition, Colin Dimeo, round out the group, turning Barham's songs into fiery, fleshed-out compositions.With Wolves, which hit stores in early 2015, American Aquarium is literally bigger and better."We were legitimized by Burn.Flicker.Die.," Barham says. "That album was a breakup record with the road. It basically said, 'This is our last album, this is why we're quitting, and hey, thanks for the memories.' Fast-forward, though, and we've got a new record that says, 'We ain't done yet.'"

Filling a void for the kind of music people have been craving for a long time but just can't seem to get enough of these days. Strong songwriting, heartache soaked vocals, and swirling guitars that dance together like they used to long ago are what make this band. Asheville, NC's Black Robin Hero is carrying on a tradition of song that people know and love and with an urgency of the present, like so few bands do in our time. Formed after an impressionable chance visit to Asheville, NC from San Francisco by Matt Lane in 2009, Black Robin Hero was born shortly after Lane decided to make the cross country move back to the southeast and make Asheville his home later in the year. Lane had been honing his skills as a songwriter for the past year, holed up in his studio apartment on the corner of Haight and Fillmore and playing open mic nights in the Bay Area. Something had him craving to get back to the Carolinas for a slower and more gratifying lifestyle however… This time around Lane settled for the rich-cultured mountains of North Carolina instead of the South Carolina coast where he spent many years as a musician prior to living in California. It wasn't long after the move he realized that two of his co-workers at the restaurant where he worked were also musicians. Soon after, Chef J. Rowland, bartender Shawn Oldham, and Lane got together and began molding a backlog of Lane's material into what would become Black Robin Hero songs. The band then added Greg Terkelsen (This Man's Hat) and Brian Ross to the group and started performing around the Asheville Area and gearing up for their debut album Narrow Plains EP. With their debut album (recorded at famed Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville) Black Robin Hero came "out of the gate with cymbals flaring, guitars revving, kick-drum taking a beating… No apologies, no awkward silences, no stammer, no sidelong glances. Just all systems go, full speed ahead, take no prisoners, charge" as described by Asheville's Mountain Xpress magazine. "This is how you make an entrance." Their music is reminiscent of all that lies in between San Francisco and Asheville..."stretching out over soundscapes of dusty highway miles, sun-drenched plains, places found off highways and around hairpin turns."After a hefty schedule of some of the finest regional music festivals and venues the Southeast has to offer, Black Robin Hero took almost a two year hiatus before surprising everybody in 2017 with their release of Lonely High and a new lineup to go along with it’s release. The new record has been described as “a feast, offering melodies from the guitar work as flavors that come together to create an experience, fed by the natural excitement found in the guitar band model and nudged along by the ability of Black Robin Hero to channel the chaos of five distinct individuals into a unified force (Alternate Root).” This feast has given the core of the band- Lane, Rowland, and Terkelsen, a new energy to carry the Black Robin Hero torch into the horizon.Now with a revitalized lineup, Black Robin Hero is at it again with an exciting live show of their familiar, yet new sound of rock n’ roll. They will be spreading their wings throughout the Southeast in support of Lonely High and are already back in the studio for its’ followup…The CarLeans:WEBSITEHEAR SOME MUSICSEE A VIDEOThe CarLeans are a musical collaboration between Connecticut based musicians Jim Carpenter (guitar, vocals), Sarah MacLean (guitar, vocals) and Corina Malbaurn (bass, vocals). The blending of their diverse musical backgrounds creates a captivating musical experience.Steeped in passion for story telling and navigating the human experience, their original songs are raw and powerful - paired with a delivery and live performance that's honest and marked by well-placed musicianship and vocal presence. There’s a versatile sound that comes from the three piece rooted in Americana/folk music, but extends through Country/Pop/Blues/Cajun.

with Showtime Goma and Nancy Feast
Innocence Reaches begins with a query. "How do you identify?" coos a robotic voice over a strikingly modern mix of bright synthpop and surging rave. The question too feels very of its timeas outdated ideas about gender and attraction are being overturnedbut it's also a fair ask whenever of Montreal debuts an album.The project's 14th LP follows two full decades of mercurial creative mania: swallowing up '60s psych-pop, Prince-ly funk, and glammy prog in turn; morphing freely between full-band affair and cloistered confessional booth; comprising lyrics both painfully personal and absurdly fantastical; and recently drawing site-specific inspiration from culture capitals like San Francisco or New York City. The thread that runs through it all is Athens, GA's Kevin Barnes, and Innocence Reaches finds him at his most light-hearted in years, working a Parisian stint, Top 40 sounds, and his newfound single status into the kaleidoscopic swirl. Even as he continues to sift the sonic and emotional detritus of his past, Barnes sums up his current mood in the opener's title: "let's relate."The most immediate surprise is the sound. Innocence Reaches is touched by contemporary electronica, indie pop, and EDM. For the first time in his career, Barnes tuned into now. "Forever I've been detached from current music," he says. "I got into this bubble of only being in some other time period. I came up picking apart the Beach Boys, the Beatles, and symphonic pieces. But last year, I was hearing Jack U, Chairlift, Arca, and others, thinking about low end and sound collage. It was an extra layer to geek out on."Paris helped with that. Barnes lived in a friend's studio for two weeks. It was in an apartment complex and, as he prefers to work at night, he couldn't thrash loud instruments for fear of noise complaints from the neighbors. But the in-house arsenal of vintage synthesizers and drum machines was fair gamecheck the skittering beats of "a sport and a pastime" and thick hum of "chap pilot."By day, Barnes wandered Pere Lachaise Cemetery, sat at cafes and wrote poems, read Jeans Ganet and Cocteau, or eavesdropped on conversations he couldn't translate. "Being in that place where no one looks at me twice and I can't even understand the language was like entering a parallel universe," recalls Barnes. "It was cathartic and inspiring to amputate myself from my normal life and feel like an individual outside of all the baggage and memories."Enjoying anonymity, he sorted through the inner wreckage left by his divorce two years prior, and took stock of the briefer relationships since. "my fair lady" bids adieu to a familiar figure over sax-streaked disco-funk, but we soon meet Sarah from Detroit on darkwave dream "ambassador bridge," and Gabrielle the Athenian Beach Goth amid the trappy space-glitch of "trashed Exes." In "les chants de maldoror," our hero cooly declares, "We only act nicely when we're ruining hotel beds/I greeted you in a hundred doorways." Innocence Reaches continues of Montreal's recent autobiographical streak, which finds Barnes "fetishizing reality," as he puts it.But he's concerned with a broader reality as well. "it's different for girls" is an exploration of the "dilemme feminin". Combining Daft Punk's aptitude for groove with LCD Soundsystem's witan endlessly quotable track that has Barnes outlining the dangers inherent in binary gendering: "It's different for girls,from when they are children they're de-personalized, aggressively objectified..." and later Barnes sings "It's different for girls, they are mercurial creatures, not a masculine dissonance or sexual currency". The song is less feminine anthem and more pop exegesis of societal codes. "though some women are demons all of them are God". Indeed.Apropos, Innocence Reaches' cover design was an attempt by a new first-time fatherKevin's brother Davidto express his "wonderment for the female anatomy." And the aforementioned "let's relate" was indeed inspired by trans issues, a subject dear to Barnes' heart. "I have a history of gender-bending in performances, but that's also always been a part of my identity as a human," he says. "I'm thankful to have an outlet for that, to express that and not get chased out of town or beat up. I think we're moving in the right direction now." The song is a call to find common ground in simply being human: "I like that you like you/I think that you're great/I want to relate," he sings cheerily.Innocence Reaches features darker moments to be sureisolation, anger, indifference, and the feeling that, like a Truffaut film, madness lurks just outside the framebut as Barnes explains, "Epiphany comes from breakdown. If you can stay open and vulnerable, the nebulous becomes transparent. That's one of the magical aspects of writing from personal life."Sometimes you've gotta intentionally court a little chaos in order to make one of the best, weirdest, brightest, catchiest, and most inventive albums in your already incredible catalog.

He has an endless and varied repertoire which he draws upon to complement the ambiance of the show. His extensive repertoire has provided him with opportunities to share shows with blues musicians, traditional folk musicians, and jam bands. Whatever the audience, he keeps them engaged with his energy, humor, and spontaneity.According to Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, Baby Gramps is one of the 50 most influential musicians of the last 100 years. Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys , a two-CD set produced by Hal Willner and Johnny Depp, brought the name Baby Gramps into the homes of those who bought the collection for its rare and one-off Bono, Sting, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright, Richard Thompson, Bryan Ferry, Lucinda Williams, Lou Reed, Martin Carthy, Johnny Depp (as Jack Sh*t), and others. Yet, with all that star power, it was the Baby Gramps track, “Cape Cod Girls” that got top billing (side one, cut one). He’s also the artist they sent to The Late Show with David Letterman to plug the CD with Tony Garnier, Bob Dylan’s bass player and band leader, backing him up on bass. This motley crew (from the CD) including Baby Gramps, Tim Robbins (actor), and Shane McGowan took the CD on tour in England, Ireland, and Australia. In recent years Baby Gramps participated in 7 films including a jug band documentary, a “Louie Louie” documentary, and an update of the academy award nominated film “Streetwise”.“Mixing the myth-making mystique of a traveling troubadour of the past with an incredible array of musical influences, there is no other performer out there on the road today quite like Baby Gramps.” ---- Sean McCourt, Santa Cruz Sentinel
