Rob Base

Twitter
LinksBest known for the multi-platinum 1988 hip-hop classic "It Takes Two," Rob Base and partner DJ E-Z Rock rode the hit into dance clubs and, eventually, the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, providing a touchstone for the style known as hip-house. After Base leapt several hurdles -- including vicious rumors about his personal life, and a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by Maze's Frankie Beverly regarding the duo's third single, "Joy and Pain" -- he responded in 1989 with a solo album, The Incredible Base. None of the singles on that album had the force of "It Takes Two," however, and the duo's career subsequently went through more downs than ups.
Born Robert Ginyard in Harlem, Rob Base began performing with a group called the Sureshot Seven while in fifth grade. By the time of high school graduation, the only members left were him and DJ E-Z Rock (b. Rodney Bryce, Harlem), so the duo began recording on their own. Their first track, "DJ Interview" -- credited to only Rob Base as the artist, with co-production credits for E-Z Rock and Chill Will -- appeared on World to World's Fast Money compilation in 1986. Debut single "Make It Hot" was released on the same label in 1987, after which the duo signed with the larger Profile. The first Profile release, the title-track single from their debut album, It Takes Two, became a street sensation upon its release in mid-1988. Though the single barely reached the R&B Top 20 and the Hot 100 Top 40, massive club airplay enhanced its impact considerably. Both the single and album eventually went platinum, and Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock were awarded Single of the Year by Spin. The second single, "Get on the Dance Floor," continued the duo's dance appeal, though his excellent rapping helped him retain his street credentials.
By the end of 1989, however, Rob Base was on his own. His only explanation for the disappearance of DJ E-Z Rock was "personal problems." The release of The Incredible Base in 1989 was a bit of a comedown; despite several interesting tracks, including a reworking of Edwin Starr's "War," neither the album nor any singles connected with listeners. Base and E-Z Rock reunited for the 1994 album Break of Dawn, which didn't make much of an impact. Base continued to perform through the 2010s but didn't record another album, while E-Z Rock remained active as a DJ. E-Z Rock died of a diabetic seizure in 2014 and was honored later that year at the Hip Hop Hall of Fame ceremony. ~ John Bush, Ro

LinksCrazyHorse & Colston is a hip hop duo based out of Asheville, North Carolina. As Asheville natives, the two take pride in making music that a wide range of audiences can enjoy. Both MC’s were heavily influenced not only by Hip Hop music, but also by Rock, Blues, Folk, and Bluegrass (among others) and have blended many of these genres together to make their latest album, “Backroads & Bonfires,” which features many talented local musicians such as Don Lewis of “Sons of Ralph” and members of the popular reggae group “Common Foundation.” The two strive to embody the spirit of their Appalachain home while at the same time fighting against a culture of disrespect and superficiality that has become increasingly popular and acceptable in our modern era of music. They believe that this is especially true for hip hop music and seek to reconnect with the roots of this genre and expose audiences to the same raw, creative, and thought-provoking music that they had the benefit of enjoying while growing up. Along with their DJ, DJ Kilby, the group has performed at places such as Asheville Music Hall, The Garage at Biltmore, The Chop Shop in Charlotte, the Burn Neon Music Festival in Old Fort, and the Blue Plum Festival in Johnson City, TN (to name a few). They were recently featured in the Mountain Xpress’ Best of 2012 as the number one Hip Hop group in WNC and had the honor of representing their hometown at the most recent Bele Chere street festival in Asheville, NC. Since the June 2012 release of “Backroads & Bonfires,” the two have been touring, making videos, and working hard in hopes of spreading their music to a wider audience.

Black Pussy

Website

Watch
LinksBlack Pussy is a group of rock n' roll pot-smoking, fun-loving long hairs that are passionate about art, creativity and the dynamic human spirit which refuses to submit. We encourage everybody to take the ride with us.

On Blonde was written and recorded by Dustin Hill, it's his baby. He's usually in White Orange with Adam Pike (who guests here), and rocks Black Pussy with bassist Pike, guitarist Ryan McIntire, and guitarist Peter Meissner (the latter also did the mind-blowing pop art album artwork). Wild and furious White Orange drummer Dean Carroll is drumming for Black Pussy when they play out live as well.

The album is another sleek, inimical machine from Adam Pike's Toadhouse Studios in Portland, OR; responsible for White Orange's recent press-busting self-titled full-length and various EPs and singles. "He's an engineering wizard and with a super solid personality," Hill says.

For a long, lovely, midnight desert ride, it makes a stunning companion, jaw-grindingly full of dangerous ideas snug in cigarette-burned red leather car seats. "I got death on my shoulder / and the girl with the sweetest ass," Hill melodically boasts in the chugger "Blow Some Steam Off." "She's my high heeled cocaine ... I got my switchblade suitcase." You want to fly down the road alongside him, just lit up by the blunt you're sharing.

On the bold as love, big beat "Ain't Talkin' About Love," the serpentine, sensual come on feels as threatening as it is intoxicating . Using some form of time travel, "Indiana" chops up dusky minimalism to its long, sinister tale of a restless beer run in a crumbling town. "Is it any wonder that I'm lonely / Twisting and turning above my head." It's like a Springsteen epic deconstructed and set on fire outside a Mexican garage.

"Dream weavers, fortunetellers and creators alike," Hill casually mentions as his influences, "Heart, Brant Bjork, Prince, The Cars (circa 1978), Guns 'n' Roses, Fleetwood Mac (ca. '78)." (Bands that were big back when it was more about the stirring of loins than upholding vanilla indie Puritanism; the Crue's Shout At The Devil changed Hill's life and his first LP was Judas Priest's Diamonds And Rust.)

"We just want to make as much rock n roll as possible," Hill says of the full band that will be performing his dream ride live. He longs to perform the songs that come to him from "the umbilical chord of the universe attaching itself to me (with lots of weed). As long as we are playing music we're getting our fill. It could be live playing to one person or a sold out show, in the studio, rehearsal room, or alone in an empty room. It's all one in the same in the big picture."

Like the blues players who extolled short, thrill-filled lives, Black Pussy's On Blonde is a hedonistic binge road trip, eating up and inspired by everything but the bullshit of power politics and organized religion: "Cigarettes, coffee, booze, woman, it's all rock n roll," Hill says. "I want listeners to feel sex on opium when they listen to us."

Hill's favorite quote is "Careful people and careful poetry last long enough to die safely." (Charles Bukowski from Septuagenarian Stew: Stories & Poems, 1990)

WEISSHUND is a rock and roll duo from Atlanta made up of Rick Lollar (vocals and guitar) and Marlon Patton (drums and Moog bass pedals). Patton and Lollar channel their respective influences of John Bonham and Jimi Hendrix, while focusing on riffs and melody and performing with the reckless abandon of a garage band. Lollar and Patton are regulars on stage and in the studio within the Atlanta music community and joined forces in early 2014 to find an outlet. We stayed up all night, made a mighty whiskey-fueled ruckus, and when the dust cleared the next day, we found a pile of new songs, says Lollar. Weisshund has performed at venues such as Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn, Rockwood Music Hall in Manhattan, Caledonia Lounge in Athens, Ga. And Terminal West in Atlanta. Weisshund released their debut self-titled EP in June 2015 and are playing shows around the East Coast while working on their full-length follow up.

with Minorcan, Missing Stares
Birdcloud is Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green, a pair who met in a place called Murfreesboro and who, since 2009, have used things like booze and sacrilege to make very modern country music. The duo write songs about what Sarah Palin deemed "the real America," that unsung republic of countrified interstices stretching from coast to coast between cities. Kaset and Green's America is a nation of indulgent reprobates and boastful imbeciles, laughing maniacs and horny high school dropouts the desperate, absurd place we all inhabit in one way or another. The band's music is the ravenous id of today's commercial country sound, and in place of the pandering and polished banality of Nashville's Music Row is a savagely honest depiction of "real Americans," where a teenage evangelical designates her vagina (alone among her orifices) to Christ; a Desert Storm veteran dispenses ancient wisdom while driving drunk and toppling birdbaths in the suburbs; a coked up blackout drunk on a spree fellates a rodeo clown and tells her friend's children that Santa doesn't exist. These characters are characters in both senses of the word: 1) eccentrics with notoriously outsized personalities, as well as 2) complexly three-dimensional literary creations. The complicated sensation of listening to Birdcloud's musicthe simultaneous urge to laugh, vomit, and maybe break down and cry a little at how familiar and sad and true it all ishas won the band fans across the lower 48, stupefying and sickening audiences in equal measure.Boasting a strong YouTube presence, Birdcloud's un-unseeable videos resonate beyond the continental U.S., with a slew of fan-versions of songs available online as well as an odd amount of unauthorized re-releases of official Birdcloud videos with Russian subtitles. Birdcloud's third and darkest EP was released in spring of 2014, and their follow-up record will launch in the summer of 2015.

Scott Miller came into the national spotlight in the mid nineties as leader of the Knoxville-based band The V-Roys; signed and produced by Steve Earle for his E-Squared label. After releasing two critically acclaimed albums, The V-Roys disbanded. Miller then signed to Sugar Hill Records and released several highly praised recording with his new backing band, The Commonwealth. Most recently he has recorded and released music through his own F.A.Y. Records label.The last few years have seen big changes for Miller. He left his long-time adopted home city of Knoxville, TN to return to the family farm to tend a herd of beef cattle, look after his elderly parents and set up a new touring base from his hometown of Staunton, VA. During this time of transition and scaled down touring, Miller teamed up with old-time fiddle maven Rayna Gellert adding another sonic layer to his repertoire. The two released a mini-ablum titled "Co-Dependents" and continue to tour together and collaborate often. For his newest cd, "Big Big World," Miller tapped Nashville guitarist and producer Doug Lancio (Patty Griffin, John Hiatt). Miller's avid fans will realize the title phrase points to the artist's new musical horizons, stretching beyond any of his previous works and reflecting his significant growth as a songwriter. Miller's writing is informed and fueled by his connection to his family land in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. He truly is the sum of his 'Southern place': rural imagery, sin and salvation, defiant, rebellious, pathos and humor. He is currently working on new music, stepping up his touring with the Commonwealth's Ladies Auxiliary (Rayna Gellert and Bryn Davies) and finding a way to merge his life on the farm with his songwriting. "History is my jam", states Miller. "The story is already there and all you need to do is find some connection with it and try to connect that to the listener."Miller recently collaborated with filmmaker James Weems (Jason Isbell) and photographer Glen Rose to produce the mini-documentary "Goin' Home" which explores Miller's personal and musical journey since returning to the family farm.

with Pleasures of the Ultraviolent, Drunk in a Dumpster
Sloppy Seconds is a Ramones/Dickies-influenced punk band from Indianapolis that started in the mid-1980s. With such underground hits as "Come Back, Traci" (a tribute to an underaged Traci Lords), "I Want 'em Dead", and "So Fucked up", the band prefers to sing about such topics as pornography, classic horror movies, old TV shows, comic books, alcohol, being fat, and getting drunk. They have been quoted as being proud to be fat, drunk, and stupid. Their name is the slang term for when a man has intercourse with another person who already has received another man's semen in the relevant orifice.

William Elliott Whitmore and Josiah & The Bonnevilles take the stage atNew Mountain Asheville on August 30th!$12 Advance:: William Elliott Whitmore ::Known for the sparse, haunting qualities of the mostly solo recordings he refers to as Dzroots-folk music,dz in which his voice is often accompanied by little more than a banjo or acoustic guitar, William Elliott Whitmore began writing songs last year with some changes in mind. DzI purposefully went into it wanting to make a little bit of a departure,sonically, using an electric guitar a little bit more and adding more instrumentation, more full-band type stuff,dz he says. Raised on a family farm in Iowa and inspired by the insurgent sounds of The Jesus Lizard, Bad Brains and Minutemen, Whitmore sketched out the new songs between feeding animals and tending crops. Each week he traveled two hours to Flat Black Studios in Iowa City, built and operated by his cousin and producer, Luke Tweedy. Together, where they would rehearse, record and build songs, sometimes welcoming other musicians to play live on tracks. Energized by this diversifying, and also given the space to pair a patient sense of craft with the usual punk rock spirit to which Whitmore has always paid homage, the songs on his new album, Radium Death (out now on ANTI- Records), hum with an exigent electricity—whether amplified or not. They also present a cohesive look into those recurring Whitmore themes of respect, protection, sustenance and survival.:: Josiah & The Bonnevilles :: "I'm nostalgic to the core," says Josiah Leming. "I think back on things a lot. I get hung up on certain moments, and that's when I feel like I've got to get a guitar into my hands." Nostalgia might be a surprising motivation to hear from Leming, the young, erudite, emotional powerhouse behind Josiah & The Bonnevilles, especially considering his band's entire bright future is unfolding right before his eyes. But one listen to Leming's songs and you'll understand: his nostalgia isn't a longing for the past, but rather a quest for understanding of the present. Boyish though he may look, Leming writes with the weathered wisdom and unflinching self-realization of an old soul. Inquisitive, witty, and fearless, his lyrics are high beam headlights piercing through dark nights of the soul, illuminating the pain and joy of growing up, falling in love, falling apart, and moving on. "These songs came from a really difficult place, and I don't think there's any way around that," Leming says of the 'Cold Blood' EP, a preview of his arresting debut album for Vagrant Records. "I felt like I was in a hole that I was never going to dig out of, so I started writing. Some of the songs were to remember better times, and some were to get me out of the shitty times I was living in."In the summer of 2013, Leming had just completed a grueling tour of the United States plagued by setbacks and disappointments. Burned out seemingly beyond repair, he relocated to Las Vegas and questioned his next steps until fate intervened. First, a friend introduced him to the music of Townes Van Zandt. Then his brother sent him a copy of Leonard Cohen's 'New Skin For The Old Ceremony.' Josiah felt something important brewing, so he began teaching himself to fingerpick on a small Martin guitar he'd received as a gift from a fan. Clumsily at first, but with increasing finesse every day, he obsessively explored the instrument and his tumultuous emotional surroundings. Slowly but surely, the tumblers began to align and the locks started to turn. What at first appeared to be impenetrable walls ultimately revealed themselves as hidden doors, and suddenly previously unknown musical worlds opened up before him. "When I was young, the folk and country stuff never connected with me," confesses Leming. "I was more dramatic than that. The flair of the British stuff like Morrissey and Echo and the Bunnymen was what really hit me."The new material Leming found himself writing in Las Vegas combined the two, fusing the plainspoken poetry of American roots music with the emotional drama of Brit-pop into something of a new-Americana. He set up a microphone in his living room and recorded the meat of what would become the new album by himself, layering guitar and piano and vocals a track-at-a-time. The songs mined his childhood in Tennessee and the longing he felt to escape. They traced his journeys around the country, never settling down in any one place for too long. They mapped his fears and anxieties, spoke candidly to ex-girlfriends, and pulled no punches. "For me, the music follows the words," says Leming. "I think the lyric creates the hook, and the words are what build connections in people's minds. If you get the words right, and if you sing them with conviction, no matter the melody, people will relate and they'll want to sing along."And that's exactly what happened when Josiah began performing the new songs live with guitarist Stephen Johnson and bassist/percussionist Josh Nyback. Under the name Josiah & The Bonnevilles, they landed a residency in LA that quickly garnered a devoted fanbase and showed Leming just how far those simple, stripped-down tunes he'd recorded in Las Vegas could go. The power of the live shows and the audience reactions inspired Leming to bring his new bandmates into the studio in LA with co-producer/mixer Dave Way (Fiona Apple, Paul McCartney) to flesh out several tracks and finally complete work on the album.The resulting record showcases the full spectrum of Leming's talents, from the bittersweet farewell of "Back To Tennessee" and gut-wrenching confessional "Lie With Me" to the Dylan-esque "Please" and infectious "Swing." The arrangements are understated, drawing emotional power not from bombast or grandeur but rather through intimacy and intensity. Leming and the band create wide-open vistas with their music, leaving room for the lyrics to live and breathe and cut you to the quick. "Cold Blood" displays Josiah's mastery of intricate fingerpicking techniques, while "Long Gone" makes beautiful use of his delicate falsetto, and "London" transports you into an entire world built of nothing more than an acoustic guitar and his quavering, passionate voice. In the end, that's what Josiah & The Bonnevilles do best: transport you. Each song is a journey in its own right: of memory, of regret, of hope, of self-discovery. Josiah may be nostalgic to the core, but out of the darkness of his past, he's crafted a brilliant beacon of an album that's shining a bright, blazing light onto all the promise of his future.

Raleigh, NC – In the business of music, many are called and many may try, but few cross the threshold of being able to say they are truly committed for the long haul. With the release of their latest studio album, Burn.Flicker.Die., American Aquarium is proving that they have graduated to that class of professional musicians that have made an undeniable commitment to their music and their fans.

American Aquarium's six years as a band have been a fast-moving blur of rubber on road, touring coast to coast through the states and Europe. Most nights of the year are spent far from their Raleigh homes, squinting out from bright stages at a growing legion of passionate fans who've followed them through the release of six albums that reflect a whirlwind of too many whiskey soaked nights, nameless women in smoky bars and fast living while your youth is in full bloom. But what happens when it all stops feeling good?

Burn.Flicker.Die. is what has emerged from that scenario for this group of hard working players. After two years of writing, they journeyed to the legendary recording hub which gave birth to some of the greatest blues, country and rock records of all time: Muscle Shoals/Sheffield, AL. Recorded in eight days under the precise hand of friend/tour buddy Jason Isbell, the record is an aptly named milestone for the band, and their most painstaking effort to date. As a long-time Southern rock artisan, Isbell provided a weathered know-how in producing the record American Aquarium is proudest of. Described as a "consequence record" by vocalist BJ Barham, the band spent that week pushing out everything that's been haunting them: working for six years, watching buzz bands peak and die, and pining for their own payoff.

"I wish my addictions didn't mean so much/but we all can't be born with that kind of luck," Barham sings on the title track, capturing the fast lifestyle with images of subtle barroom horrors: Finding a high in a dingy bathroom stall, a pretty barfly from somewhere down south you won't see again, free shots you can't say no to. "Casualties" is a soaring, chorus-less ode to death by rock that confronts age and the band's great fear of having made the wrong choice. They've watched artists ride the hype train right off the track. But that can't be American Aquarium – they've been laying low too long, finding their way to the most poignant album of their careers through hard touring and waking up to realize that it's not Saturday night anymore.

Some of the record hurts to hear, like the quiet, fine-spun "Harmless Sparks." It sounds like the flicker of a solitary cigarette burning to its filter in the blue-black glow of a bar. Keys plink like shot glasses in the background, and you're the last to go home. American Aquarium has been there before. But the record also looks to the end of a hard road, where there might be validation for good music, and even love. In "Jacksonville," Barham promises someone a call if he "makes it out alive." Taking a cue from Ryan Adams, he draws romance out of shame in "Northern Lights." And in "Saturday Nights" and "Saint Mary's," he makes a subtle mockery of the dives they know too well – slick with spilled whiskey and crawling with restless women who all look the same.

Every grizzled image of Burn.Flicker.Die is real, which comes from the band's profound understanding of small southern town debauchery and six years of pushing their careers off the bottom rung. Like many of their musical heroes that have paved the way before them, American Aquarium can wrap the ugliest feelings in the most spirited soundscape. Sonically uplifting instrumentation and vivid, wrenching lyrics illuminate the dark side of hanging out in rock 'n' roll limbo, but also how the band has clawed their way out of it. Through their struggle to sustain their career and resist the temptation of fire, American Aquarium's demons have hung around. But so have they.

LinksSUSTO is the brainchild of Justin Osborne. It was born out of collaboration between Osborne & various colleagues including but not limited to Johnny Delaware, Wolfgang Zimmerman, Nicholas Scott Woodley & Camilo Miranda. These collaborations took place between 2011 & 2013 in Charleston & Havana.

Early writing & recording for SUSTO began in late 2011.

In early 2013 Osborne began performing solo in South Carolina & Cuba under the name of SUSTO. By August of that year SUSTO was performing as a full band. In addition to Osborne covering rhythm guitar, keyboards, & lead vocals _ this line-up included Taylor McCleskey on drums, Eric Mixon on bass and Johnny Delaware on lead guitar & background vocals.
By early 2014 the debut self titled album was finalized & subsequently released by Osborne & Delaware's label Peninsula Records on April Fool's Day (04/01/2014).

After an extensive North American solo tour (Summer 2014) in support of SUSTO's debut album, Osborne returned to Charleston and began to solidify a permanent live band. SUSTO's full band line-up eventually came to be Corey Campbell (Guitar, Keys, Vocals), Johnny Delaware (Guitar, Keys, Vocals), Jordan Hicks (Bass Guitar), Marshall Hudson (Drums/Percussion) and Justin Osborne (Vocals, Guitar, Keys).

The band maintains a moderate tour schedule & a second album with the werking title "& I'm Fine Today" is now in production; no timeframe has been established regarding it's release.

B.J. Barham was a long way from home when the tragedy happened.

On November 13, 2015, the singer-songwriter—raised in a small North Carolina town called Reidsville—was in the middle of his fourth European tour with American Aquarium, the rising alt-country act he’d led for nearly a decade. They were in Belgium, less than two hours from Paris, when bad news began to arrive: a series of terrorist attacks, including one in a rock club, had left more than 100 dead. Family members, friends, and the fans American Aquarium had amassed from so many years on the road immediately reached out, making sure the band had been far away.

“The onslaught of text messages, voicemails and everything that came in the next day sparked something in me,” Barham remembers. “In the next two days, the entire record was written.”

The record he’s talking about is Rockingham, Barham’s remarkable and intensely personal solo debut. Not long after the wave of well wishes had passed, Barham found himself piecing together composites of people he’d known since childhood, of those folks and places who had impacted his life in fundamental ways. He sang into his cell phone and scribbled in notebooks, stealing away for quiet moments in order to put the melodies and characters floating through his mind into song.

The shock of the moment and the distance from home seemed to give Barham a crucial perspective on the moments and circumstances that had helped shape him. Wolves, American Aquarium’s much-lauded 2015 breakthrough, had contained Barham’s most honest, vulnerable statements to date. But these songs took the next step, allowing Barham to share stories about those around him. In “O’Lover,” he portrays a hard-working farmer forced to make some desperate decisions to support the ones he loves. In “Reidsville,” named for the place he’d called his home until relocating to North Carolina’s capital, he immortalized beautiful, sweet, doomed souls, stuck in love in the sort of small towns that are disintegrating all across America. You needn’t have been to Reidsville to recognize these elegantly written, expertly realized protagonists.

“This is the first record I’ve ever made that’s not autobiographical—it’s fictional narrative in a very real place,” Barham says. “These songs are human condition stories set in my hometown, Reidsville.”

Barham made these songs his new priority. Not long after he returned stateside, he asked Bradley Cook, the musician and mentor who had co-produced Wolves, to hear them. By afternoon’s end, they had hatched the plan to make Rockingham. Two months later, on January 31, Barham returned from another American Aquarium tour.

On Monday, he and the band he’d built to record Rockingham—himself, Cook, Cook’s brother and multi-instrumentalist Phil Cook, drummer Kyle Keegan, American Aquarium standbys Ryan Johnson and Whit Wright—met for the first time. On Tuesday and Wednesday, they rehearsed. And on Thursday and Friday, they cut all eight songs at Durham’s Overdub Lane. They mixed the results over the weekend, between the sold-out hometown shows and various festivities of American Aquarium’s annual pilgrimage, Roadtrip to Raleigh. The whirlwind kept the songs simple and the recordings human, reflecting a reality much bigger and less perfect than the vacuum of a recording studio.

These tunes, after all, didn’t need much tampering. Rockingham puts its scenes and scenarios front and center, the beautiful grain and twang of Barham’s voice bringing it all to life. He limns lifelong romance and instantaneous tragedy during the paradoxically heartbreaking, heart-mending “Unfortunate Kind” and details the disappointments and dreams of the blue-collar laborer with “American Tobacco Company.” With its acoustic guitars and pealing organs, ragged vocals and rugged characters, Rockingham is a stunning, personal portrait of small-town America, easily identifiable and familiar.

For the album’s sole autobiographical moment, Barham, now happily married and sober, penned a letter of sound advice and Southern attitude to his daughter-to-be, “Madeline.” It’s too personal to fall under a roots-rock purview, too singular to be swallowed by a larger situation. Like all of Rockingham, it’s not the sound of Barham stepping away from American Aquarium but instead stepping confidently into the thoughts, stories, and feelings of his own thirty years.

“This is just an outlet for a songwriter. It’s me being able to do something different. This is like people who love their jobs, picking up hobbies,” says Barham, “This is an exercise for myself.”

Uncle Earl Reunion

Facebook
LinksSeated Show

Fearless ambassadors for stringband music, Uncle Earl use tradition as a springboard, coloring a vast and varied legacy with their own unique perspectives as vocalists, instrumentalists, and songwriters. Independently, Kristin Andreassen (guitar, fiddle, ukulele, harmonica, vocals, clogging), Rayna Gellert (fiddle, guitar, vocals), KC Groves (mandolin, guitar, bass, vocals), and Abigail Washburn (banjo, vocals), have each emerged as adventurous, compelling voices in the ongoing old-time renaissance. Together, their undeniable chemistry, charisma, and formidable combination of talents made them a fan and festival favorite both at home in the U.S. and abroad.

Over the course of many productive years together, Andreassen, Gellert, Groves, and Washburn introduced new audiences to the timeless beauty and limitless potential of traditional American old-time music, while inspiring the explorations of the next generation of roots musicians. A pair of striking releases on eclectic roots music imprint Rounder Records brought their take on stringband music to the pages of such influential outlets as Rolling Stone, the New York Times, and Mojo.

Tireless national touring and a pair of self-released EPs made Uncle Earl a word-of-mouth favorite at festivals and listening rooms, and brought them to the attention of Rounder Records – who released She Waits for Night in 2005. Produced by old-time maverick Dirk Powell, the album consolidated the group’s many strengths and helped establish a national following for the group. On the festival circuit they encountered stringband music enthusiast and former Led Zeppelin bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, who produced the band’s widely acclaimed 2007 follow-up, Waterloo, Tennessee. Rolling Stone cited Uncle Earl in its list of “The New Bluegrass: Five Acts to Watch,” calling Waterloo “their most ambitious [album] yet, mixing traditional fiddle-powered jams and rich four-part harmonies with countrified covers of classics and old-time ho-downs.”

Following the intense touring in support of Waterloo, Tennessee – which took them everywhere from the BBC to Bonnaroo – the individual members resumed their solo pursuits full-time. Groves and Andreassen have occasionally reconvened Uncle Earl with the help of some of the finest female performers in old-time music, and in 2016 the Andreassen/Gellert/Groves/Washburn lineup reunites for a handful of very special performances.

Fearless ambassadors for stringband music, Uncle Earl use tradition as a springboard, coloring a vast and varied legacy with their own unique perspectives as vocalists, instrumentalists, and songwriters. Independently, Kristin Andreassen (guitar, fiddle, ukulele, harmonica, vocals, clogging), Rayna Gellert (fiddle, guitar, vocals), KC Groves (mandolin, guitar, bass, vocals), and Abigail Washburn (banjo, vocals), have each emerged as adventurous, compelling voices in the ongoing old-time renaissance. Together, their undeniable chemistry, charisma, and formidable combination of talents made them a fan and festival favorite both at home in the U.S. and abroad.

Over the course of many productive years together, Andreassen, Gellert, Groves, and Washburn introduced new audiences to the timeless beauty and limitless potential of traditional American old-time music, while inspiring the explorations of the next generation of roots musicians. A pair of striking releases on eclectic roots music imprint Rounder Records brought their take on stringband music to the pages of such influential outlets as Rolling Stone, the New York Times, and Mojo.

Tireless national touring and a pair of self-released EPs made Uncle Earl a word-of-mouth favorite at festivals and listening rooms, and brought them to the attention of Rounder Records – who released She Waits for Night in 2005. Produced by old-time maverick Dirk Powell, the album consolidated the group’s many strengths and helped establish a national following for the group. On the festival circuit they encountered stringband music enthusiast and former Led Zeppelin bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, who produced the band’s widely acclaimed 2007 follow-up, Waterloo, Tennessee. Rolling Stone cited Uncle Earl in its list of “The New Bluegrass: Five Acts to Watch,” calling Waterloo “their most ambitious [album] yet, mixing traditional fiddle-powered jams and rich four-part harmonies with countrified covers of classics and old-time ho-downs.”

Following the intense touring in support of Waterloo, Tennessee – which took them everywhere from the BBC to Bonnaroo – the individual members resumed their solo pursuits full-time. Groves and Andreassen have occasionally reconvened Uncle Earl with the help of some of the finest female performers in old-time music, and in 2016 the Andreassen/Gellert/Groves/Washburn lineup reunites for a handful of very special performances.

w/ Anna & Elizabeth
http://www.annaandelizabeth.com/

A collaboration between Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth Laprelle, the pair’s growing acclaim springs from a shared quartet of talents: Both are historians, storytellers, visual artists, and gifted, intuitive musicians—in combination, a groundbreaking approach.

Inspired by the richness and tradition of the music, Anna & Elizabeth gather songs and stories from archives and visits with elders. They bring these songs to life in performance with sparse, atmospheric arrangements using guitar, banjo, fiddle, and the uncanny blend of their voices in close harmony. They accompany their songs with stories—of the lyrics, of the singer, of the quest to learn the song—and they illustrate them in mesmerizing fashion. The two revive the old scrolling picture show, dubbed “crankies”—intricate picture-scrolls illustrating the old songs they sing, which they create in tandem with papercuts, shadow puppets, prints, and embroidered fabric.

Anna & Elizabeth met in 2011, and their work has brought them to stages across the world, including the Atlanta Museum of Modern Art; folk festivals in Brooklyn, the Yukon, Chicago, Maine, and Uzbekistan; residencies at universities; summer traditional music schools; and small theaters and folk clubs across the U.S. and U.K.

Their second album, which features Grammy nominee and legendary folk singer Alice Gerrard, was released March 2015 on Free Dirt Records. It has been featured on Vice’s Noisey, the Huffington Post, No Depression, and NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series.

This winter, Anna & Elizabeth are beginning a new cycle of work, inspired by ballad singers of the 1930s and 1940s in Vermont and Virginia—the states where they grew up. Spending time in archives, with the families of these singers, and with a director, Anna & Elizabeth with explore connections between place and tradition to develop a new show, a new set of crankies, and a new album inspired by these ballads.

7pm doors, 8pm show. ALL AGES. Seated show. $17 ADV, $20 day of show.

Bob Log III is a One Man Band Slide Guitar Party.Bob Log III is an American, Slide Guitar, One Man Band. During performances, he plays old Silvertone Archtop guitars, wears a full body cannonball man suit, and a helmet wired to a telephone which allows him to devote his hands and feet to guitar and drums. The spectacle has been described as a guitar dance party, full of sweaty smiles, jumps and kicks. Touring over 150 shows a year in more than 30 countries, Log and his guitar never, ever quit. Bob Log's version of quick Delta blues is a continuation the sound that Bob Log and Thermos pioneered in the duo, Doo Rag. The major differences are: greater emphasis on guitar showmanship, and drumming -one man band style-with his feet. It sounds like three drummers, two guitar players, and one sort of singer. Based in Tucson, Arizona, and Melbourne, Australia, he has made frequent tours of North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, Mexico, and Iceland.His latest release, MY SHIT IS PERFECT, begins the onset of another slew of adventures. Geography be damned, Bob Log III intends to take these songs and his unique slide guitar party to the good people of the world. There is no town too remote, there never has been.

Sawyer Fredericks has certainly come a long way from the 88-acre Upstate New York farm where he grew up. However, home is still a big part of his soulful, contemporary folk sound.Thats where I started playing guitar, he says. It was so much fun growing up there. There was a lot of open space, and I was able to be around animals. Nature really inspired me. I feel like it gave me a different musical perspective.His stark honesty and soulful delivery turned him into a national phenomenon during the eighth season of NBCs Emmy Award-winningThe Voice. As part of Team Pharrell, he emerged as the youngest victor in the shows history at just 16-years-old. Moreover, he madeVoicehistory, becoming the first artist to land 14 songs in the iTunes Overall Top 200 Songs Chartin one week. All in all, his digital sales exceeded 1 million cumulative singles, making him one of the shows most successful artists ever. Most importantly, Sawyers time onThe Voicetaught him quite a few things.I learned so much, he says. It was incredible to be around that many artists and see so much talent. I took it all in. Getting to perform on that stage was amazing. I also remember Pharrell gave me a piece of advice that Ill never forget. He said, Stay true to yourself.Thats what Sawyer does on his latest albumA Good Stormfor Republic Records. Led by the striking and soulful first single Take It All, the collection is a continuation of his singular style.The process of co-writing was new for me, he says. Learning to create a more upbeat song and work with someone else was a great learning experience. Lyrically, its a love song about a guy whos at the end of his rope, and this woman has lifted him up.Elsewhere on the album, Lovers Still Alone sees his voice take the spotlight over a rich sonic backdrop. I got to work with a full band in the studio, and it came out really nicely, he goes on. Its about a person whos with someone, but the significant other is not really acknowledging them or loving them. I think everyones been through that kind of one-sided relationship.Appearing twice on the album, another stand out track is the song, 4 Pockets. Closing out the record, each version brings its own flavor and showcases Sawyers versatility. The Original Mix is the epitome of Sawyers soulful style, while the Pharrell Williams Mix offers a rhythmic response featuring more production for an alternative viewpoint on the song. 4 Pockets even caught the attention of The Voice, inviting him back to perform the original version on the shows tenth season.Ultimately, Sawyer forges a true connection between his roots and his passion for music that has lead him to where he is today I want the lyrics and music to connect to the audience, he leaves off. I just hope they feel when they hear me.

with RBTS WIN, Doc Aquatic
Hailing from the misty mountains of Asheville, NC, Marley Carroll has been making waves as a thoughtful, sophisticated electronic producer with a penchant for melancholy melodies and warm, silvery vocals. Known as "the producer's producer," Carroll commands respect among his peers and a steadily-growing audience of fans. A classically trained pianist and percussionist, but never content to color inside the lines, he became the youngest ever to win the title of Best Scratch DJ for his home state of North Carolina at 17. In the years since, he has never stopped evolving, undergoing a full transformation into a veteran producer, DJ, and dynamic live performer.His self-produced 2007 debut album Melanaster was the result of meticulous bedroom alchemy, recalling a lost Radiohead LP submerged in ten feet of saltwater. The album's sonic signature can be found somewhere between the beautiful haze of early '90s shoegaze rock (My Bloody Valentine) and early 2000s IDM (Autechre, Squarepusher). Smeared, melancholy pop songs tethered to abstract electronic rhythms, or what NPR called "gorgeously subdued glitch-pop."In 2011, Carroll truly came into his own as a producer and live performer. He developed a solo PA set to bring a more raw and improvisatory vision of his music to live audiences, combining vocals, turntables, hardware controllers, and analog Moog synth. His onstage performances are exercises in understated talent that mix live vocals with stunning and unorthodox turntablist skills over a bed of sophisticated electronica. In 2012, he toured with forward-thinking producers like Shigeto, Dabrye, and Emancipator, and appeared at groundbreaking music festivals across the country (Moogfest, Decibel, Coachella). The galvanic dance floor energy of larger audiences infused his drum-driven 2012 EP R&S / Cedars, and its title track garnered a favorable feature from XLR8R. Steadily, national attention was building for Carroll's unique style of subtle and compelling dance music.In December 2013 he released Sings, a new full-length LP that combines the best of his recent instrumental work with his considerable skills as a songwriter. A densely propulsive electronic album rooted in forest imagery, Sings received universal critical acclaim, drawing praise from tastemakers like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Bandcamp and Impose Magazine. Sings was named NC's Best Album Of 2013 by YES! Weekly.
