Genre: ReggaeCover: Ca$h Donation$ @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+ THE LAMBSBREAD  "The Lambsbread is one of the acts that make music along the philosophic principles of the “love and unity” vibes, and it all comes around together, through the sound and the lyrics." - reggaefrance.com Formed in 2003 on the mystical island of Kauai, The Lambsbread are one of the foundational roots reggae artists' of Hawaii. Delivering a positive message of love & unity, The Lambsbread is well know around the world for their conscious message and hard roots riddims. When Kaya and Nadia first met on the island of Kauai, they knew they had a long life of music together. Living together on the island, writing music, and studying the teachings of His Majesty, the Lambsbread penned their first single "Love in the House" (2003 Zion High Productions). After sending out their demo to several promoters on the US West Coast, The Lambsbread was invited to perform at the Renegade Reggae Festival in Mount Shasta, California. Other stops on the tour included Washington, Oregon, Santa Barbra, and San Diego where they met Zion High producers Elliot Lieb, and David "Jah D" Goldfine. After building a musical vibes, The Lambsbread and Jah D did a studio session in San Diego, and recorded the majority of the tunes for their first album "Sing Praise" as well as the hit single "Love In The House" on the Liberation Riddim. The single was released on 45 in Jamaica along with tunes from Capleton, Yami Bolo, Turbulence, Lutan Fyah, and Jahdan Blackkamore. This was the first time an artist from Hawaii was ever released on Jamaican vinyl. The tune was a hit and ended up on radio shows, and sound systems around the world, giving The Lambsbread their first international exposure. At home in Hawaii the tune busted on local radio stations, and The Lambsbread filmed a video for the song on there home island Kauai. The video went viral and received over 500,000 views sending The Lambsbread on several more tours across Hawaii and the West Coast. On one of these tours The Lambsbread met veteran reggae artists Prezident Brown. Continuing their works with Zion High, The Lambsbread recorded the hit song "Mountain Top" ft. Prezident Brown. This tune also ended up on 45 coming out of Jamaica on the Red Razor Riddim from the Lustre Kings label. The tune once again circulated on sound systems, and radio stations around the world establishing The Lambsbread as a powerful voice in reggae music. Through their connection with Lustre Kings producer Andrew "Moon" Bain, artists like Lutan Fyah, and Ras Attitude made their way to Kauai to perform. Linking with these Rastafarian brethren’s The Lambsbread recorded tunes like "Struggle" ft. Lutan Fyah, and "Teach Dem" ft. Ras Attitude. These tunes ended up on one of The Lambsbread's most popular albums "Salvation" (2006 Adin-nin Records), featuring more productions from Jah D and Moon. Following the album The Lambsbread did a CD release tour across the Hawaiian islands that included Prezident Brown, Ras Attitude, Arkaingelle, and was backed by an all star band featuring Moon from Lustre Kings on guitar, Zion High producer Jah D on bass, Nick Fantastic on keyboards (Hard Times Riddim), and Wadi Gad on drums longtime drummer for Don Carlos. The tour was put together by their sistren Jahnan Derso and included shows on Kauai and the other main Hawaiian islands. This kicked of two more years of touring the West Coast, and the Hawaiian islands. Through all this touring Kaya & Nadia managed to raise a family of 4 beautiful children on Kauai, sometimes taking them on their tours along the West Coast. Their next album "Rise" was recorded on one of these runs through CA. Now well established in San Diego The Lambsbread was offered unlimited studio time in a multimillion studio in Lemon Grove. The whole Lambsbread family lived in the studio and over the next four months "Rise" was recorded by Engineer/Producer Andrew Mencher (Wisdom & Sound) meanwhile The Lambsbread was touring relentlessly playing 3 to 4 nights a week in San Diego, Santa Barbra, LA, San Luis Obispo, and Ocean Beach. During that year The Lambsbread performed many times at the legendary World Beat Center performing on shows like Haile Selassie I Earthstrong celebration, Peter Tosh Day, and Marcus Garvey Day for Makeda Dread. The following year she also brought The Lambsbread for Earth Day in Balboa Park, one of the biggest Earth Days in the US. "Rise" featured a collection of different producers that they hadn't worked with before. Tracks included production from Nelson Miller, Devin Bradshaw, Mikey Assasin, Sherry Rootical, and Jimmy Cui (Rumble Rock Recordz). The tune "Tenshun" Produced by Rootical JA was The Lambsbreads' first dancehall track and again found The Lambsbread circulating in the Jamaican music scene with artists like Sizzla, I-Wayne, Turbulence, and Perfect Giddimani. This tune led to performances in dancehall's on the West Coast, like sold out Wild Out Wednesdays with Blessed Coast, DJ Irie Dole of Jah Warrior Shelter in San Francisco, and Carlos Culture in San Diego.  Still faithful to their roots reggae fans The Lambsbread started what would become a lasting musical relationship with Jimmy Cui from Rumble Rock Recordz by recording "Jah Will Make A Way" on the Step By Step Riddim. The tune became the first single from roots label Rumble Rock Recordz and was released on limited edition vinyl and featured Messenjah Selah on the B-side. Many doors were beginning to open for The Lambsbread and Oahu became a regular stop for The Lamsbread where they performed to large crowds at venues like Pipeline, Aloha Tower, and the Shack in Waikiki. Their next blessing arrived in the form of an all island tour with Midnite from St. Croix. The tour featured stops on all major islands and finished with a sold out show at Hard Rock Cafe on Maui. Also performing on a follow up tour with Ky-Mani Marley, The Lambsbread was ready to get back in the studio, and while in Oahu the Lambsbread recorded the island hit "Right Ting" (2011 Rumble Rock Recordz) that hit the radio on all islands getting heavy rotation in Maui and Kauai. Relocating the family to Maui in 2013, Kaya & Nadia started to work on their latest album "Bring Them Together". Over the next two years the songs were carefully crafted in several different studios on Maui and the resulting album is some of The Lambsbread's best work to date. The album includes the hit single from Jah Youth Productions "Live It Up Again" and a new collaboration with their good friend and mentor, Prezident Brown "Stand Firm" (Rumble Rock Recordz). Both of these tunes also feature a HD video filmed by Zeb Films Hawaii; another tune off the album to gain international notice was the hit "Keep It Blazing" (More Life Productions/VIS Records). "Keep It Blazing" was a hit with the sound systems and The Lambsbread found themselves recording dubplates for selectors in France, UK, and US. Building a new band this year, two of The Lambsbread's children have stepped up to the musical works. Hawaii's youngest professional reggae musicians, Samuel Levi is holding down the drums with his brother Jacob Selassie on the keyboards. The sound is serious roots with a message of upliftment for the people, with some of the youngest reggae musicians in the business. 2016 has been busy with works to record a brand new album for release in spring of 2017. The album was self-produced by the Lambsbread family and features top players from the Jamaican music scene, as well as guest appearances from major international artists’. The Album the “World Needs Love” was release in 2017 with the title track “World Needs Love” video strengthening 0ver 90 thousand plus views in its first month of release.  The Lambsbread considered their music to be medicinal and therapeutic that is correctly prescribed for musical healing for the nation of the world….    web: http://www.thelambsbreadreggae.com/vid: https://youtu.be/wRNNFSaQAk4

"What makes the homey Ozark stew of Handmade Moments so very nourishing, so perfectly spiced?

Somewhat Petty is a new Asheville-based tribute band playing the best of rock icon Tom Petty, and, of course, the Heartbreakers, with some Traveling Wilburys thrown in for good measure. Somewhat Petty is comprised of 6 local musicians, all with one common goal: playing great rock music everyone loves - 40 years of Tom Petty & company. They dont look like them, they just sound like them. Come out, drink a few, and sing along!Rest in peace, Tom Petty. Thank you for the amazing music you've given us for over 40 years. It truly has been the soundtrack of our lives. For about a year now, Somewhat Petty has been playing Tom's music. It never gets old... it makes us feel like we did when we first heard it. We find ourselves in the stories and get lost in the melodies. The people we play for love it just as much as we do. Most of the songs we play, they sing right along with us... it's amazing, really it is! As much as there is a void in our lives now, I can't even imagine the hole left in the hearts of his family, bandmates, and friends. Our thoughts and prayers and love go out to them. Tom, you will be missed forever. We love you.

Lucero You could say we were one of the lucky ones, starting this band in April of '98 without a clue as to what we were doing. We were getting tired of the steady punk rock and metal diet and we wanted to try our hand at country songs, or do our best Tom Waits/Pogues impersonation. The trick there was that we couldn't really play our instruments! I had never played guitar before and Ben Nichols (lead singer, guitar) had only played bass in other bands. Finding Roy Berry (drummer) and John C. Stubblefield (bassist) solidified the line up and being hidden away in Memphis allowed us to woodshed, experiment with different sounds and create one that was ours alone. Eventually we got out of town, and playing 250 shows year not only made us tight as a band but as a family as well. We are still one of the few bands out there with the original line up from almost the beginning, and it shows. Picking up Rick Steff on keys allowed us to expand the sound and grow musically. Being able to play whatever we could think up in our heads and having the music we loved and grew up on motivate and inspire us to try new things and take chances. We realized that if you added some horns to Ben's lyrics that it took it to the next step, from sad bastard country rock to soul and R&B and we realized we were a Memphis band and came by it honest. We have always brought Memphis with us wherever we went and this just proved it. We came out screaming on 1372 Overton Park. Big sound, bigger horns – like a kid with a new toy we put them on everything and loved it! This record was a marked departure from the previous sound and announcement of way things we're gonna be now! While 1372 Overton Park was written and the horns added after the fact, Women & Workwas written with the horns in mind so it was a little less gung ho and was starting to settle in nicely. Women & Work is one of the best modern Southern rock records in my opinion and the song "On My Way Downtown" has almost surpassed "Tears Don't Matter Much" as the crowd favorite... almost! This brings us to the new record. All A Man Should Do contains some of the most resonant lyrics Ben Nichols has ever written, lyrics that read like chapters from his life on the duality of relationships, getting older, finding where you want to be in this world, and musically we are broadening our sound. Working with producer Ted Hutt for a third time at the famous Ardent Studios, we felt comfortable enough to take some chances with a palette of new tones that sound understated yet powerful, bringing life to the stories behind the lyrics without overshadowing them. It's also the first time we've ever put a cover song on a record, with a full band version of big star's "I Fell in Love with a Girl", and having Jody from Big Star sing back–up vocals makes it that more special and amazing. This is a Memphis record in the greatest sense and a perfect finish to the three–part love letter to a city that brought us up and made us what we are today. "I was 15 years old in 1989. This record sounds like the record I wanted to make when I was 15. It just took 25 years of mistakes to get it done." — Ben Nichols "Having Big Star actually sing on your cover of a Big Star song that you're recording at Ardent Studios – it doesn't get much more exciting than that." — Ben Nichols

Genre: Cinematic R&BCover: Ca$h Donation$ @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+  MELD MELD's music is an eclectic soulful journey. Drawing inspiration from her two favorite genres, Electronica and Classic Soul, she has created a unique fusion of musical elements. People have likened her performance to that of a "modern day" Janis Joplin meets Janelle Monae.  In January of 2017, MELD released her debut EP "H.U.R.T." (Healing Under Rising Truth.) The 5-song work was produced by Matt Harris of Livetronica band, Zoogma, and can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, YouTube and more. Her single "Easy On The Game" received nods from Nylon Magazine, BTRToday, No Country for New Nashville, YabYum Arts, Syracuse New Times, and several other publications- ultimately landing the single on Hype Machine. The "H.U.R.T." remix album is set to be released in March 2018, with collaborations and remixes by Felice, Y-Diz, Smurphio, SAER, Daniel Simmons, Spaceship Earth, Waterchild, and Batavia. In previous solo projects, MELD (Melanie Dewey,) has had the opportunity to share the stage with jam bands Zoogma, Papadosio, and Brothers Past. vid: https://youtu.be/-N4zLBy4zRI The Knotty G's Chuck Knott and "Jill with a G" front the funky and fun-loving folk duo known as The Knotty G's. Formed in Asheville, NC, they travel the country serving up soul in a hearty original recipe of pan-seared-boot-stomping-upbeat tunes, slow-cooked-captivating ballads, and even a few beaten-battered-deep-fried covers. Nothing short of a stir fry of fun, these characters can certainly satiate even the biggest of musical appetites. web: https://www.theknottygs.com/vid: https://youtu.be/exKbUwuy-74

NOTE: AS THE LOCATION OF THIS CONCERT IS A PRIVATE HOME, ITS ADDRESS WILL BE SENT TO YOU AFTER A TICKET HAS BEEN PURCHASED. - - - Kyle Carey’s unique trans-Atlantic fusion of music - called Gaelic Americana - includes influences of the American Folk Anthology,  Appalachian music & poetry, and the traditional music of Ireland, Cape Breton and Scotland. Kyle’s just released her third album in January, The Art of Forgetting, produced by Dirk Powell, recorded in Louisiana, and features luminaries such as Rhiannon Giddens, John McCusker and Mike McGoldrick. Folks have said of Kyle and her new album... "A treat – she has the most fantastic voice." – Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales"A wonderful album from Gaelic-Americana singer-songwriter Kyle Carey – already a contender for album of the year." – Desi Fisher, Radio Northern Ireland"A genuine gem, a true delight, ‘The Art of Forgetting’ is an album to positively savour." - Iain Patience, No Depression"Tastefully mixes sounds from different influences, a clear and beautiful voice, full of delicacy, sensibility and good taste…and really superb arrangements." – Mike Penard, Radio I.S.A. Kyle Carey spent her earliest years in the Alaskan Bush, where her parents were teachers, and where she found herself immersed in the Yupik language and its songs—developing a sensitivity to language and music that would aid her later in the creation of her own style of trans-Atlantic folk. As a Fulbright scholar, Kyle traveled to Cape Breton to study Scottish Gaelic language & music, afterward continuing her study on Scotland's Isle of Skye. She finally landed in Ireland—where she recorded her debut album Monongah. A few years later, Kyle traveled to Scotland to produce her sophomore release, North Star, produced by Solas founding member Seamus Egan and features another all-star cast. Having toured for five years on both sides of the Atlantic, Kyle Carey is a unique and innovative artist not to be missed. Doors at 7:00 PMShow at 8:00 PM - - - More at: kyleannecarey.com

He has performed over 3000 concerts and released twelve full-length CDs of primarily original music, touring in all of the fifty states, as well as five of the seven continents. The Boston Globe writes that his music “pushes the envelope with challenging lyrics and unusual tunings, but he also pays homage to folk tradition,” while BBC Radio Belfast lauds his “charm, stories, humour, insightful songs, sweet voice and dazzling guitar ability.”His dense speaking and workshop calendar has included presenting at the PC(USA) Mission to the United Nations, keynoting peace conferences in Berlin and at the Scottish Parliament, as well as offering the baccalaureate for 2016 graduates of Columbia Seminary. As a keynote speaker, and then Critical Conversations Coordinator, he has facilitated conversations about race, privilege, and positive change for thousands of college students at the Montreat College Conference. His TEDx talk on what music can teach us about peacemaking was published in January of 2018.LaMotte suspended his eighteen-year music career at its peak in 2008 to pursue his other primary vocation by accepting a Rotary World Peace Fellowship to study International Relations, Peace and Conflict Resolution at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. As part of that study, he also spent time in rural Andhra Pradesh, India working with a Gandhian development organization.David has published three books, including two illustrated children’s books. The first based on his award-winning children’s song SS Bathtub and the second, White Flour, tells the true story of a creative, effective, and whimsical response to a Ku Klux Klan march in Knoxville, Tennessee by a group called the Coup Clutz Clowns. His most recent book, Worldchanging 101: Challenging the Myth of Powerlessness, is being used as a textbook in universities in the United States and Australia.walkingIn 2004, David and his wife Deanna founded PEG Partners, a non-profit organization that supports literacy, critical thought, and artistic expression in Guatemala. He continues to serve as the President of PEG. He is also a consultant on Peace and Justice for the North Carolina Council of Churches, and served as Clerk the AFSC Nobel Peace Prize Nominating Task Group.LaMotte’s latest album, The Other Way Around, features musicians from every inhabited continent, and guest appearances from Ed King of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nicky Sanders and Graham Sharp of the Steep Canyon Rangers, and Tim O’Brien, among a large cast of musicians. It was released in September of 2016, and debuted at #8 on the Folk-DJ chart.Touring full-time for over twenty-five years, LaMotte has developed a large and loyal following around the world. His music has been honored with numerous awards and artist grants, and has been featured on dozens of artist compilations. Notably, his song Dark and Deep was included on Songs Inspired By Literature, Chapter One, a benefit CD to raise money for adult literacy. Other artists on that CD include Suzanne Vega, Grace Slick, Aimee Mann and Bruce Springsteen.

Amanda Anne Platt and The Honeycutters The songs on Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters blend the band’s old-school country roots attitude with their shared influences of rock and folk. Amanda says of the album, “I think it’s just about life and all that that entails. Including but not limited to death, strangers, birthdays, money, leaving, arriving, seasons, corruption, and love.” Performing along with Platt, The Honeycutters are Matt Smith on pedal steel and Stratocaster, Rick Cooper on bass, Josh Milligan on drums and harmony vocals, and Evan Martin on keys and Telecaster. There is an empathetic and charming wit engrained in Amanda’s songwriting. She has a knack for accessing a deep well of emotion and applying it to her story-telling, whether she is writing from her own experiences or immersing herself into the melody of emotions in another person’s life. The successes of On The Ropes [2016] and Me Oh My [2015] have propelled Amanda Anne Platt and The Honeycutters onto the national scene and they have been featured on NPR’s World Cafe’s Sense of Place, NPR’s Mountain Stage, Nashville’s Music City Roots, and Folk Alley and they have performed at AmericanaFest, MerleFest, and IBMA. On The Ropes debuted at #39 on iTunes Top 40 Country Chart on release day and landed on a plethora of year end lists including placing #35 on the Top 100 Albums played on Americana Radio in 2016 and landing at #1 on Western North Carolina’s WNCW Radio’s Year End Listeners Poll of Top Albums of 2016!
