Charlie Worsham - Could It Be (Official Music Video) Charlie Worsham - "Want Me Too" OFFICIAL AUDIO Charlie Worsham - The Beginning Of Things (Official Audio) Charlie Worsham - Cut Your Groove (Official Audio) Charlie Worsham's highly anticipated sophomore album Beginning of Things is set to be released April 21 on Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville. Co-produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Aubrie Sellers) and Eric Masse (Rayland Baxter, Mikky Ekko), the 13-track album is already receiving widespread advance critical acclaim, with NPR Music praising, "...Worsham has made a sophomore album that, if there's justice, will give him an unforgettable year. It's a strong statement of purpose and further proof that country aimed at the center can be deeply intelligent, beautifully crafted and meaningful." Born and raised in Mississippi, Worsham attended Grenada High School and went on to study at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. In addition to his life as a working musician, Worsham is actively involved in music education and, last year, founded the Follow Your Heart Scholarship Fund in partnership with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The fund supports the youth of Grenada, Mississippi—his hometown—who possesses uncommon talent and desire to achieve great things in the arts.

The Blue Dogs "Isabelle" Blue Dogs Isabelle w/ Darius Rucker Blue Dogs - "I'd Give Anything" from "Live at the Dock Street Theatre...Again" On Wednesday, December 28, 2016, the Blue Dogs once again took over The Charleston Music Hall in their hometown to celebrate 28 years of making music. This show marked the Americana band’s fourth "homecoming" since their 25th Anniversary show in 2013, and to solidify it as annual affair, the band brought in MUSC's Children's Hospital in 2014 as a charity partner. By evening’s end of the 2016 show--thanks to support from Tito's Vodka, a variety of local sponsors, donations of ticket holders, as well as a generous gift by an anonymous donor and the overall match by The Press On Fund (for pediatric cancer research)--the Dogs fetched over $150,000.00, all of which benefited the capital campaign for the new MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital by funding the pediatric cancer research of MUSC Hematologist-Oncologist Dr. Jacqueline Kraveka.

The show was again a sellout, and as in years past, the show included special guest appearances, this year featuring Grammy-award-winning country artist, songwriter, and producer Shawn Camp from Nashville (by way of Little Rock, Arkansas), and Mississippi singer-songwriter Cary Hudson, formerly of the band Blue Mountain.

Past shows have included guests such as Darius Rucker, Hootie and the Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Radney Foster, Pat McGee, 2015 Georgia Music Hall of Fame inductees Drivin’ N Cryin’, SC native Sadler Vaden (guitarist for Grammy-nominated artist Jason Isbell), Doug Jones of Greenville SC’s Cravin’ Melon, acclaimed South Carolina singer-songwriter Danielle Howle, Matthew Mayes & John Felty of Brevard, NC's Jupiter Coyote. There have always been a number of Charleston-based acts involved as well, including Bryson Jennings, Uncle Mingo, Five Way Friday, Dangermuffin's Dan Lotti, Dave Dunning and Live Bait, Mac Leaphart, John Wesley Satterfield, Travis Allison, Carroll Brown, Charlie Thompson, and most of the former and current members of the Blue Dogs. Unannounced guests are expected each year.

The band continues to perform in 2017 on a regular basis at venues everywhere including clubs, festivals, and colleges as well as for corporate events, private parties, and fundraisers. They continue to maintain an international fan-base, with all 9 of their recordings available through iTunes and other digital portals via their distributor, Redeye, and their CD's, DVD's and other merchandise offered exclusively at their website, www.bluedogs.com. 2017 marks 29 years since standup bassist Hank Futch joined forces with longtime friend, fellow Cub Scout, and acoustic guitarist/vocalist Bobby Houck under the band name “Blue Dogs,” and so they will celebrate their 29th Anniversary on December 29, 2017, once again at The Charleston Music Hall, and with many special guests to be announced later in the year.

The Vegabonds- "Hope She's Still Mine" The Vegabonds - The Hammer (Official Music Video) The Vegabonds - Take A Ride (Official Music Video) The Vegabonds - Oh My Lord (Official Music Video) "The Vegabonds [January 2015 Relix Jam-off Winners] are five southern rockers based in Nashville, TN bringing their "New South Rock" to the forefront of the rock-and-roll and jam scene. With three albums already out in the musical world and a new record due [February 2016], their explosion is only a matter of time!" – Relix Magazine

After seven years of touring the world, a few original projects under their belt and an unwavering devotion to their craft, The Vegabonds have completed what might be considered their best work thus far. "What We're Made Of" consists of hard-hitting lyrics that don't hesitate to touch on real-life situations like growing up, moving on, heartbreak, loss and the struggles that accompany it all. Well versed, two-time Grammy nominated producer and engineer, Tom Tapley (Destiny's Child, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen), applied his soulful roots background and passion for rock 'n' roll to bring The Vegabonds' vision to fruition. The combination of Tapley's unmistakable chops, the analog console's raw sound and the group's impeccable instrumentation and vocals creates a genuine style that is exclusively their own. This 12-song journey is their fourth project as a group and the first release they have had since 2012. Over the past 3 years The Vegabonds have discovered what they're made of and are eager to share their adventure and self-discovery with the masses.

The Vegabonds are...
Daniel Allen (Lead Vocals/Guitar) Richard Forehand (Guitars/Vocals) Paul Bruens (Bass)
Beau Cooper (Keys/Vocals)
Bryan Harris (Drums)

Southern Culture On The Skids has been spreading the rock and roll gospel since since they formed in Chapel Hill, NC in1983. Guitarist/singer Rick Miller, drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer/heartbreaker Mary Huff, play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country-fried garage with a side of psych, all the while driving fans into ecstatic, sweat-drenched paroxysms of joy. Its a musical gumbo Miller calls, Americana from the wrong side of the tracks. The band has been prolific and ubiquitous for over thirty years, touring everywhere from the North Carolina Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan and delivering what Rolling Stone calls a hell raising rock and roll party.In 2014 the band was honored by the Southern Folk Life Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill with an exhibition featuring their music and cultural contributions. The flame-adorned La-Z-Boy from the cover of their Plastic Seat Sweat LP now resides at UNC-CH!Southern Culture On The Skids' newest album, The Electric Pinecones, was released on September 16, 2016. It's the bands fifth album on their own label, Kudzu Records. The album features 12 original SCOTS tunes 11 brand new songs and a whole-lotta NOLA remake of the SCOTS classic, Swamp Fox - The Original. All the tunes were produced and recorded at Ricks studio in NC, The Kudzu Ranch.The Electric Pinecones is a bit of a departure for the band conceptually and sonically. The inspiration for the record was born in an alter-ego side project from the early years of the band. The Pinecones was folk-ahill-a-billy garage band we used to put together just for kicks, Miller relates. We loved the sound of '60s west coast folk rock and psych bands. The Pinecones was our outlet for material that was not in the SCOTS vein. We even opened for ourselves occasionally. The Pinecones set list was the jumping off point for this latest collection of songs.The first single off the album, Grey Skies, is a minor key mood piece with that folk-a-billy, psychedelic sound. Listen to how the acoustic 12-string riff slides into the bands hypnotic rhythms that propel Mary Huffs reflective vocal into the minds eye of times past and love lost. Check out the Mellotron on the chorus that is a first for us, Miller says. The lead off track, Freak Flag, is more upbeat, but no less tweaked, with modulating guitars riding on pounding drums after the first verse. The songs message is a good one it is okay to be different and always respect yourself. The band debuted the song to an auditorium full of rowdy students at Carrboro Elementary School. I was nervous, Miller says if the kids dont like something they let you know, but when they started singing along with the second chorus and waving their imaginary freak flags in the air, I knew it was a hit!Dirt Road is Marys three-minute ode to sances, thunderstorms and good lovin long gone. The song is abackwoods southern gothic ghost story that opens with a big tom fill then twists and turns around a folky strum and a fuzz guitar. Marys spooky-good vocal takes it down that dirt road way back into the piney woods.The album also has some country rock songs that highlight the melodic side of SCOTS, with Baby I Like You, I Aint Gonna Hang Around and Given To Me featuring some of the best harmonies Rick and Mary have ever recorded.Waiting On You is the longest song on the album, coming in at 4:22; its a folk-garage-rocker with a singa-long chorus that segues into a surf raga breakdown before heading back to the big riff and out.The album has traditional Southern Culture flavor too. Check out the remake of Swamp Fox The Original. This take goes back to the beginnings of the song and is much closer to capturing the essence of the many all-nighters the band pulled in NOLA with friends and colleagues. The country funk of Rice and Beans, is a good humored tale of a cash strapped southern courtship, and Midnight Caller is Marys slinky RnB flavored woman-to-woman warning about bad men looking for good times.Song for song, on The Electric Pinecones, Southern Culture On The Skids continues to blow minds and blur the lines between genres delivering a stellar album. From their 1985 debut Voodoo Beach Party, to their 1988 international smash, Dirt Track Date (featuring the hit single "Camel Walk"), and now to the SCOTSified tunes of The Electric Pinecones, 30+ years, 200+ songs and 1,000,000+ road miles in, Southern Culture On The Skids just continues to get better with time.

"No band in town or anywhere is wrecking melodies as efficiently as this bizarro grunge-land band right now. On "So Hard," Pile flirts with about a dozen shards of anthem-worthy melodies in about two minutes before retreating into a haze, and diving into the monolithic riffs of "The Browns." The layered chords are thick with dissonance, the asymmetrical beats tumble like drum sets tossed down the stairs, and every wry vocal feeds on playground bipolar outbursts. Sounds like a recipe for force-fed weirdness, but these crooked moves unfold like clockwork." The Boston Globe

Named in honor of the song by bluesmen Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, acoustic funk-popsters Jump, Little Children formed at the North Carolina School of the Arts, where founding members Jay Clifford (vocals, guitar), Ward Williams (cello) and brothers Matt (harmonica, accordion, mandolin) and Evan Bivins (drums) were originally studying classical music. Influenced by a friend from Dublin, they began playing traditional Irish folk music in their spare time, increasingly drawing influence from Delta blues as well; eventually, the group quit school to focus on performing full-time, even gigging in Ireland in 1992 before returning to the U.S. and settling in Boston. There Jump, Little Children began writing and performing original material, and in the spring of 1994 they relocated to Charleston, South Carolina, adding upright bassist Jonathan Gray and building a grass-roots following through their extensive street-corner performances and club dates. Turning increasingly towards pop, the band released their independent debut The Licorice Tea Demos in 1995; the Buzz EP followed in 1997, and soon after Jump, Little Childrensigned to Atlantic, issuing Magazine the following year.

Overview The Certified Scrum Product Owner course is a two-day, interactive class introducing the concepts of Agile business leadership using the Scrum framework. Successful participants will become Certified Scrum Product Owners, a first step in the journey towards a more adaptive form of business leadership. This course is based on over 24 years of industry experience, including nearly 10 years of experience in the role of Product Owner/Agile Customer and teaching/mentoring others in this role. Though each Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) course varies depending on the instructor, all CSPO courses focus on Scrum from a product owner's perspective. Graduates will receive the CSPO designation. All CSPO courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers.   Audience This course is designed for team members and managers involved in projects who may assume the Product Owner role. This is often a product manager, business analyst or business sponsor. In large organizations, it is recommended that Directors and Vice Presidents who oversee IT projects or functional areas also participate.   Prerequisites Participants must have knowledge of Scrum by reading one of the Scrum introduction books or other self-study. A basic understanding of Scrum is assumed. Previous experience on a Scrum project is desirable.   Goals Prepare participants to effectively participate on projects using Scrum and to assume the Product Owner role. View the CSPO Content Outline and Learning Objectives.    Format The course is primarily exercises and discussions with some lecture to define terms and concepts. Ample time is available to learn from real experiences on real projects from the instructor’s experience as a product owner and from teaching and coaching Scrum teams.   Course Agenda   Product Vision - A clear, shared vision is crucial for successful agile teams. We'll walk through three techniques to help unify your team, stakeholders, and customers around the right vision for your product or service: "We're #1!" - boiling your product vision down to its essence Product Differentiation - what makes your product unique, different and better Collaborating on Product Vision - use the Product Box Innovation Game for a collaborative discussion about your vision   Agile Roadmapping - Roadmaps are an important link between vision and the product backlog. Unfortunately, many roadmaps are a slide with a date and some bullet pointed features, which doesn't provide any context. Learn how to create a rich, easily updated agile roadmap that gives the right amount of context to help stakeholders and team members understand where we might be headed and why. Learn how to use the Prune the Product Tree Innovation Game to collaborate with customers on your road map.   Product Backlog Basics - Learn the rules for a Scrum Product Backlog as well as a set of key practices for using the Product Backlog to help ensure consensus on what we are building. Product Backlog Basics Writing User Stories Vertically Slicing User Stories Acceptance Criteria Backlog Refinement    Prioritization - The core of the Product Owner's job is to prioritize among the many great things we could do and help the team focus only on what is most important to do first. Traditional techniques like Kano and market research are too slow for most agile teams, so many product owners prioritize solely on gut feel or by responding to the currently squeakiest wheel. Learn a prioritization framework that helps you visualize the relative importance of your customer segments, internal & external stakeholders, corporate strategy, and maintaining a clean code base. Use the Buy a Feature Innovation Game to collaborate with customers on priority.   Agile Release Planning - Believe it or not, I've heard many times the misinformed statement: "We're agile, so we don't really plan."

Born in 1952 in Cottonwood, Arizona, Junior Brown showed an affinity for music at an early age. Discovering a guitar in his grandparent's attic at age seven, he spent the next several years woodshedding with records and the radio. Junior was also able to tap into music he couldn't hear at home which older, college aged kids were listening to. This was possible as a result of his father's employment at a nearby campus in 1958. Armed with this broad spectrum of source material, he had developed some formidable chops by the end of his teen years.Brown's passion for Country and Western music had intensified by the late 1960's. With many prominent figures as his inspiration, he spent his nights further sharpening his musical skills in small clubs across the southwest. "I played more nights in honkytonks during the 70's and 80's than most musicians will see in a lifetime...I did so many years of that, night after night, four sets a night, 15 minute breaks; I mean after that, you gotta get good or get out." Brown still prefers to refer to his favorite music as "Country and Western" as it was called when he began his career. More recently, however, with the exception of Classical, Modern Jazz and Rap, he has shown himself to be equally adept at virtually all styles of American music, leading many to dub him America's most versatile musician. A listen to his catalog of recordings reveals a virtuosity in Country, Western Swing, Hawaiian, Rock and Roll, (Hard Rock, Surf, etc.), Blues, Trad. Jazz, (Swing), Pop, Bluegrass, and even Mariachi.Junior knew he could play and sing almost anything, but he had yet to explore his potential as a songwriter. "I realized no one was going to walk into a club and discover me...so I started hanging out with some songwriters who I'd played some gigs with, and they showed me how to support myself by writing and publishing." With his songwriting coming together by the mid 80's, Brown upgraded his gear in a way that no artist had ever done. Struggling through each show with the back and forth switch between the six string guitar and its steel counterpart, he had a dream one night about the two instruments mysteriously melting into one. The result was Brown's unique invention, the "Guit-Steel", a double-necked guitar combining standard guitar with steel guitar, allowing him to switch instruments quickly in mid-song while singing. There are other Guit-Steel players now, but Junior was the first, and for many years the one and only. For this and other reasons, he is truly an American original.In the early 90's Brown and his band (including wife, Tanya Rae) relocated to the fertile Austin, Texas music scene and landed a weekly gig at the Continental Club. His unique and entertaining combination of singing, songwriting, instrumental skills and producing led to a seven record deal with Curb Records that began with "Twelve Shades of Brown" in 1993. He later released two albums on the Telarc label.

If Turnpike Troubadours are playing in your town, youll know it. A block or two from the venue, youll see the crowds lining up. Get closer and youll start to hear the music -- rockin hard, lashed by burnin fiddle and guitar, maybe a little rough on the edges but with a deep-rooted soul that's impossible to resist. And if you make it through the door, youll witness one of the best shows you'll ever see.Audiences in their home state of Oklahoma and down in Texas have known this for years. It's no longer news when they draw 5,000-plus at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth, sell out three nights in a row at Gruene Hall or turn several hundred away at the Legendary Stubb's Bar-B-Q in Austin. Word has spread, though: Their shows in Chicago, St. Louis and elsewhere have pulled in more than 1,000 fans. And theyve drawn full houses at Joes Pub in New York and The Troubadour in L.A., among many other nightspots from coast to coast.Theyve even been picked by Playboy as one of three acts to watch in 2015 -- a distinction lead singer/guitarist/songwriter Evan Felker admits is pretty bizarre but impressive nonetheless. So is that the story? The Turnpike Troubadours Tear It Up Night After Night? Actually, no. Theres another side to singer/guitarist Felker, bassist RC Edwards, fiddler Kyle Nix, steel and electric guitarist Ryan Engleman and drummer Gabe Pearson. Maybe you dont notice it as much at their shows, where their blazing performances tend to obliterate detached reflection.But youll definitely notice it on their new album, The Turnpike Troubadours, to be released September 18th on their Bossier City imprint. Away from the intensities of their show, the music speaks more intimately. Details of their arrangements clarify. Above all, the lyrics become the center of attention, spinning stories so compelling that you realize youd almost forgotten how powerful the message of a song could be.Theres 7 Oaks, recounting a life made desperate by poverty, made more vivid by an incongruous hoedown accompaniment Bossier City, focused on a sad mill worker who blows his pay regularly on gambling and booze The Bird Hunters, a short story set to a Cajun waltz about friendship, love and coming home Down Here, a conversation between one guy who has lost all he had and another who assures him life "down here" really isnt so bad How Do You Fall Out Of Love, a melancholy meditation on lost love.Dig deeper into the words and bits of brilliant craftsmanship gleam: Hillbilly girl, as sweet as wine, grew up in the thicket like a muscadine. Robbies got a brand new girlfriend. Shes got to strip for pills. I left my heart in Tulsa on the corner of Easton & Main on the Cains Ballroom floor, soaking up a bourbon stain. You bet your heart on a diamond and I played the clubs and the spades. We gambled and lost. Yes, we both paid the cost. Look what a mess I have made.Human beings like stories, Felker insists. It doesnt matter what form, whether it be a song or a movie or a poem. And theyve always been drawn to characters. Our songs are real life applied to stories applied back to real life. I might get a plot line from several short stories Ive read. Then Ill build fallible characters into the midst of all that. Theyre never archetypes. Theyre real. Its all about the character.In fact, characters are so central to the Turnpike Troubadours that they often turn up in more than one song. On The Turnpike Troubadours, for instance, the narrator in Down Here, Danny, turns up again in The Bird Hunters.Stephen King has this canon of characters and any of them can walk into one of his stories at any time, Felker says. You have all these characters living in the same universe. I havent ever seen that applied to songwriting, but thats what Im doing.This universe feels real on The Turnpike Troubadours because the band resolved to let the album happen on its own time. Moving out to the Prairie Sun recording complex in the desert country of Cotati, California, setting up in former chicken coops converted into studios, they metaphorically unplugged the clock and worked studiously through 12-hour sessions, wrapping up only when each story and every note rang true. "This album sounds like us at our best," Edwards says. "We weren't going for being overproduced. What we got was exactly what we wanted because we didn't have that time factor problem."And this is the paradox of the Turnpike Troubadours: Do they sound their best when they're delivering another electrifying live show or when they've crafted an artful album, enriched by a narrative tradition that traces back to their fellow Oklahoman Woody Guthrie, in which every nuance tells a story unto itself? Honestly, the band doesn't worry much about that."The show is about people having fun," Felker says. "The more fun they have, the more fun we have and the better off everybody is. The record is about understanding the poetry in a real way. I figure it's like people sitting around in their house, maybe drinking a beer. That's more the place for poetry.""Our sound comes from playing country music, punk rock and anything else we liked in honky-tonks and beer joints," Edwards adds. "You've got to give the crowd something to dance to and have a good time. But songwriters are the most important thing. So I think everything we've done says that you can have it both ways."The proof is on The Turnpike Troubadours and at whatever place they're playing down the road near you. Think of them as a two-headed silver dollar; on both sides, you've got a winner.

*21+ Only | $12 ADV or $15 DOS “The young blues chanteuse has little problem vocalizing her sadness, anger, and pain—and doing so in a bewitchingly seraphic timbre.” - Guitar Girl Magazine Growing up in Kansas City in a musical family, Samantha’s first instrument was the drums before she switched to guitar. As she listened to her musical heroes, Fish began to explore their own influences by going back in time. “I saw Ronnie Baker Brooks, Tab Benoit and Mike Zito (in Kansas City). That was when I knew something was happening (musically) because I almost had to leave their shows early to go home and play my guitar.’ as told in a 2011 interview with online magazine Deep Roots. Over the years, she’s cultivated her own sound by blending her influences ranging from Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, R.L. Burnside and Stevie Ray Vaughan as well as her musical peers. All that ambition and passion paid off in 2012 when Samantha won a Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut for her 2011 release Runaway (Ruf). The wonderful critical praise, winning fans at shows and all the long hours driving came to a shining moment that put more fuel into her fire. This desire is now revealed with Wild Heart as the pivotal moment in her budding career.

LinksDebut duet album Equinox named one of the "Outstanding Duo Albums of 2015″ by No Depression Magazine

"This is an enchanting debut CD by a young couple with immense respect and passion for traditional music, delivered with exquisite vocal and instrumental ability and the wisdom to play it simply and well." – Bluegrass Unlimited

"I'm a sucker for great duo harmony singing, well-written originals, choice material, and fine playing—all of these are here on Equinox, the sweet and powerful first album by Zoe & Cloyd. I absolutely love it!" — Alice Gerrard

Zoe & Cloyd spring from deep roots in American music. Founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio, Red June and long-time veterans of the Asheville, NC music scene, Natalya Zoe Weinstein and John Cloyd Miller shifted gears to their duet project after the birth of their daughter in early 2015. Their debut recording, Equinox, released in April 2015, features original and traditional repertoire spanning bluegrass, old-time and folk and showcases the elegant simplicity of two instruments and two voices. The album met with high acclaim and their banner year continued with a 1st place win at the Duo Contest at the prestigious FreshGrass Festival in North Adams, MA. Look for the couple in 2016 at MerleFest, Music City Roots, and much more!

John Cloyd Miller is a twelfth generation North Carolina native and the grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler and NC Folk Heritage Award winner Jim Shumate. John's foundation in traditional bluegrass and old-time Appalachian music coupled with his modern sensibility make him a natural musician and performer. He is well known for his haunting mountain voice as well as his instrumental prowess and award-winning songwriting. John is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest and a recipient of an Artist Fellowship for songwriting by the North Carolina Arts Council.

Natalya Zoe Weinstein also comes from a musical family: her father is master jazz pianist and her grandfather was a professional klezmer musician. She is an accomplished fiddler in a variety of styles as well as an inspiring singer and songwriter. While trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts, she has spent many years fine-tuning her bluegrass and old-time fiddling with some of the country's top traditional musicians. Now a mentor to many young players, Natalya is a sought after instructor and is in high demand as a teacher and session musician.

LinksMile Twelve is a fresh, hard driving young band beautifully walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass. Fast gaining recognition for their outstanding performances in bluegrass and folk circles, Evan Murphy, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, Nate Sabat, BB Bowness and David Benedict write captivating songs and daring instrumental pieces from diverse influences. Banjo luminary Tony Trischka says, "Mile Twelve is carrying the bluegrass tradition forward with creativity and integrity."

Since their formation in the fall of 2014, Mile Twelve has quickly been on the rise. They released their debut 6-track self titled EP, and performed extensively throughout the U.S., Ireland and Canada, including several major festivals; Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, FreshGrass Festival, Wind Gap Bluegrass Festival and Joe Val Bluegrass Festival. A track from their debut EP was featured on Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction's "Hand Picked with Del McCoury", while another track was featured on Spotify's "Fresh Bluegrass" 2015 playlist.

That same year, they were selected as formal showcase artists at the North East Folk Alliance. The summer of 2016 has held more milestones for this young group: opening for Tim O’Brien at the Station Inn in Nashville, winning the Podunk Bluegrass Festival Band Contest, being nominated for a Momentum Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association and adding a 5th band member: mandolin player David Benedict. This winter they will be heading into the studio in Nashville to record their debut full-length album with producer Stephen Mougin at the helm.

Formed in 2013 in Los Angeles, Froth first garnered attention with their debut LP, 'Patterns.' Originally intended as a small-run cassette release, the album quickly became an underground sensation in the Southern California music scene, catapulting the band to local fame and prompting a vinyl re-release in 2014.2015 saw the release of the band's sophomore album, 'Bleak.' A more dynamic, adventurous effort, the record matches lush shoegaze soundscapes with driving krautrock beats. Froth toured extensively across the U.S. and Europe in support of the album, opening for acts such as The Drums, Tamaryn, Pond and Craft Spells.After signing with Wichita Records in 2016, Froth is set to share their third album, 'Outside (briefly),' on February 10, 2017.
