Description:
"Mountain Holler" is the moniker of multi-Instrumentalist Mark Etherington, based out of St. Petersburg, FL. Along with playing drums in the national touring instrumental band Set and Setting (Prosthetic Records, Forcefield Records) and fronting the psychedelic-folk/groove outfit Redfeather, 'Mountain Holler' emerged in the spring of 2011 when Etherington started playing shows solo with material he'd be writing and building since 2006. With his first show at an open mic Night at The Tavern at The University Of South Florida St. Petersburg where he was studying Anthropology, he has since relentlessly played all over the Bay Area and Sarasota bringing to people his melodic guitar playing and haunting singing style reflective of Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, Robin Pecknold, Jim James, Jose Gonzalez, Neil Young and Stephen Stills. His ambiguous spiritual lyricism is a window into his love and time spent out in nature ranging from the forests and rivers of Florida to the mountains and canyons of the four corners region of the United States. When asked to describe his music his responce is simple, "it's music from the city about the beauty of the mind and country". In 2012 Etherington received Creative Loafing's Best of The Bay award for Best Musical MVP. "Local musician Mark Etherington puts 110 percent into whatever he's doing, whether he's belting out haunting choruses and strumming guitar as frontman of folk rock outfit RedFeather, pummeling drums with exultant unabashed vigor as half of the two-man rhythmic assault of set and setting, or doing the solo acoustic thing as Mountain Holler. With his fiery, wildly flying head of hair and magnetic stage presence, he’s also fun as fuck to watch" -Leilani Polk, Music editor for Creative Loafing

“Daniel Castro is one of the most dynamic blues guitarists performing in the West Coast.” --Willie Brown, President, Sacramento Blues Society “He’s got that real deal feel. Daniel Castro is a great musician and entertainer.” -- Elvin Bishop “Daniel Castro is the latest and one of the greatest blues guitarists to come bursting out of thehighly competitive West Coast scene. To the classic music of B.B. King, Albert King, and AlbertCollins he has added the three T’staste, tone, and technique. His raw passion warms your soulwhile his deep groove kicks your butt on fine, fresh originals and well chosen covers.” Dave Rubin, Guitar Player Magazine Describing Daniel Castro as a blues artist doesn’t begin to tell the whole story. A highly accomplished guitarist and singer/songwriter with a strong musical point of view grounded in the very best blues traditions is more like it. Combine those talents with original blues-based material and you begin understand Daniel’s strengths as an artist. Well-known for being a dynamic performer who “leaves it all on the stage” night after night, Daniel brings crowds to their feet with his blistering solos, soulful singing, and tight arrangements. Daniel has always played with seasoned musicians, but with his newest incarnation, featuring Johnny Yu on bass and vocals and David Perper on drums and vocals, The Daniel Castro Band raises the bar and is truly a force to be reckoned with.   This show begins at 7:30pm. The doors open at 5:30pm, and as seating is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, we recommend that customers arrive early to secure preferred seating. Please note that this is a cocktail show, and reserving a table requires a minimum of two drinks or an entree purchases per guest.

Worthwhile Sounds Presents: "An Evening With Parker Millsap (solo)"  WHEN: Thursday March 28th, 2019 WHERE: Ambrose West 312 Haywood Road Asheville, NC 28806 DOORS: 7pm SHOW: 8pm AGES: All Ages SEATING: Seated Show TICKETS: $15 ADV / $18 DOS / $20 VIP (Guaranteed 1st 3 Rows) Parker Milsap At 25 years of age, Oklahoma native Parker Millsap is quickly making a name for himself with his captivating live performances, soulful sound, and character-driven narratives. He’s had a string of highlights in recent years including his network television debut on CONAN, a performance with Elton John at the Apple Music Festival in London, an Austin City Limits taping and an Americana Music Association nomination for Album of the Year. He has also received praise from The New York Times, The Boston Globe, LA Times, Austin Chronicle and Rolling Stone to name a few. He first picked up an acoustic guitar at nine, then plugged in and went electric after getting into Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, eventually starting a cover band with classmate, Michael Rose who still plays bass with him today. Over the years he recruited musicians Daniel Foulks (fiddle) and Andrew Bones (Drums) to join his band.  Parker’s first three full-length releases – 2012’s Palisade, 2014’s self-titled LP, and 2016’s The Very Last Day – showcased a primal mastery of acoustic folk rock, with their flourish for revelation and fiery dynamics, all recorded with extreme precision, purpose and efficiency.  Parker’s newest album, Other Arrangements, (released 5/4/18 via Thirty Tigers) finds him taking bold steps in new directions. Associated press says "Parker Millsap rocks harder than ever on his fourth album." And Rolling Stone calls Other Arrangements Parker's "tightest, sharpest and most infectious set of songs to date." "I wasn’t prepared for the wild, vast power of his voice and his remarkable charisma. This guy can yodel, he can sing a soul song for real, he can preach and he wiggles his leg like Elvis. A star in the making.” - ANN POWERS, NPR                                                                                                                      “Notably smart, sometimes acerbic, this charismatic new performer… rivets audiences with intense but smooth vocal whoops, cascades and pauses; emotional, blues-based slide guitar with punctuating harmonica; and a sharp, compact band. If he’s doing all this at 21, what will he sound like at 30?”      -WALLSTREET JOURNAL                                                                                            “His voice has the depth of some of the best blues musicians with a gravelly range that forces you to pay attention, if not to just wonder how the slender, fresh-faced Millsap is doing what you’re watching. He’s got the boyish charms and the wild and dirty sound that comes from a life of hard living. It’s absolutely astounding.” -TULSA WORLD     “Last night in Atlanta I saw one of the best concerts I have ever seen...It restored my faith in music.”       -SIR ELTON JOHN

Tina & Her Pony w/ Laura Blackley WHEN: Friday March 29, 2019 WHERE: Ambrose West 312 Haywood Road Asheville, NC 28806 TICKETS: Advance $12 / Day of Show $15 / VIP $20 (Guaranteed 1st 3 Rows) SEATING: Seated Show DOORS: 7pm SHOW: 8pm Tina & Her Pony “Tina & Her Pony deliver a gentle folk music that inexorably swells into a powerful wave. The songs themselves carry a gentle wisdom that invigorates the listener.  Tina & Her Pony truly commit to a kind of chamber folk that feels as timeless as it does timely.”– Rachel Cholst, NO DEPRESSION In a soundscape rich in folk and americana offerings Tina and Her Pony (Tina Collins and Quetzal Jordan) stand out with their clarity and freshness. Their harmonies, arrangements, lyrics and captivating vocals combine to create something greater than the sum of the pieces which, taken individually are deceptively straightforward. Their talents are honed sharper on their latest release, "Champion" (2017), which chronicles complex emotional landscapes with the kind of wisdom and honesty required from roots music in its most distilled and cherished forms.  Tina and Quetzal have been upending expectations and convention from early on. Tina’s distinctive vocals and songwriting are the product of both a conservatory education and her singular taste in female folk artists like Gillian Welch, Joni Mitchell and Kate Wolf. Quetzal, a Canadian-Guatemalan cellist and songwriter, immersed herself deeply in the classical world for a decade, eventually turning her rigorous training on its head by becoming one of the nations most uniquely stylized cellists, coaxing rhythm and other improvised sounds rarely seen on her instrument.  “Even within the world of folk, their music can’t be defined within a single culture or concept. What is undeniable, however, is the soul-stirring power in their union”.  - Folk All Y’all  Identifying as queer also plays an important role in how Tina and Quetzal approach their unique blend of old time folk, newgrass, americana, and the essential musical and personal alchemy they only have together.  Quetzal describes her cello playing as the oceanic counterpoint to Tina’s earthy, time-honored musical approach. It’s an apt metaphor for the couple, who married in 2016, after playing music together since 2010. Tina counts through-hiking the Appalachian Trail as a formative musical and human experience, deepening her connection to that place and its musical traditions while Quetzal relishes places of fluidity in both art and expression and constantly inverts expectations. Live performances weave a fascinating web of sound and intention that draws the audience in. Listening to Tina and Her Pony offers a window into an interior landscape that begs to be explored. WWW.TINAANDHERPONY.COM Laura Blackley  Laura Blackley is a singer, writer and purveyor of high lonesome Appalachian blues and soul. She plays ‘folk tunes with a rock n roll soundtrack’ with her band the Wildflowers. Their album, titled “Tell It To the Darkness” was released in April 2017. Laura Blackley & the Wildflowers took first place in the North Carolina Piedmont Blues Preservation Society’s  31st annual Blues Challenge Band Competition back in October 2016. This win put them on the roster of artists invited to compete in the International Blues Challenge, held in Memphis, Tennessee in February 2017. Blackley also sings classic country duets and dance tunes with The Old Chevrolette Set, a honky tonk band from Asheville, NC. Blackley was an on-air host and producer for seven years at WNCW 88.7 FM in Spindale, NC, spotlighting contemporary regional music, blues, bluegrass, old-time and women in roots music. She currently works (in addition to her gig schedule) as a Teaching Artist with elementary age children, and is a recipient of numerous TAPAS (Teaching Artists Presenting in Asheville Schools) grants, working with area students exploring their North Carolina musical heritage. Blackley was invited in February 2018 by the City of Morganton, NC to teach Burke County 3rd graders about Caldwell County native (and Piedmont Blues musician) Etta Baker, for the school system’s Etta Baker week. A born storyteller, she has played in many bands, traveled many back roads and interstates and enjoys digging up old tunes and hearing the stories behind them.  She believes that music has a healing power and is a communal act, and is very much looking forward to the next gig. http://www.laurablackley.com http://www.reverbnation.com/laurablackley https://www.facebook.com/pages/Laura-Blackley

Genre: Progressive Rock /JamTickets: Limited Early Bird @ $10 / adv. $12 / dos. $15Show: 10PM (Doors: 9PM)Ages: 21+ The Mantras The Mantras, a five piece jam machine born of Greensboro, NC have been conquering crowds and melting minds all over the country progressively for over a decade. The band’s music can be described with all types of varying rock and roll terminology, but is absolutely best defined by each listener’s ear and, equally important, their experience. Since the inception of The Mantras in the mid 2000's, the band has been touring the country and building a catalog of 4 studio albums and over 100 original songs. Performing an entirely different set of music each night is an integral part of the band’s direction and mission as well as the ability to truly improvise in between orchestrated pieces. With eclectic influences of sounds from around the globe, The Mantras create a musical escapade during each performance, giving every ounce of emotion to their craft of expression and communication through music.  The Mantras are a family of rock; their closely-knit bonds can truly be felt by the crowd while the band performs. This is a critical feature of their community. One can easily tell that the musical pockets created by radical guitar riffs, gut checked bass lines, screeching synthesizers, a complete projection light show and two symbiotic drummers are no accident. The musical conversation on stage is simply beautiful to watch. The feeling is not exclusive just to the members on stage, however. The Mantras’ loyal fan base can testify to the reciprocation of love between performer and attendee and in a scene where it is sometimes difficult to stabilize a fan base and a consistent identity, The Mantras do just that. It has all of the ebbs and flows, peaks and valleys and patterns of constriction and release that can hook someone for life. Each show is a story. Each story is unique. In addition to the collaborative element between band and fans, The Mantras have shared the stage with some of the foremost titans of jam. Their most recent studio release, entitled Jam Bands Ruined My Life was recorded at Umphrey’s McGee, axe man Jake Cinninger’s home studio, where Jake is featured on two tracks. Shortly after recording, The Mantras opened for and shared the stage with Umphrey’s McGee members while performing the thumping single entitled, “Kinetic Bump.” In addition, The Mantras have collaborated with members of The String Cheese Incident, Tea Leaf Green, and Perpetual Groove among many others. The year 2013 saw The Mantras play over 180 shows, culminating in their annual Mantrabash music and arts festival, held in the beautiful backcountry of Ferguson, NC. Mantrabash stands as a testament to the loyalty of the fan base and the engagement of The Mantras within their local, regional, and national music communities. Attended by thousands, Mantrabash has become the landing spot for live music fans from all over the country to enjoy the hard work and dedication of The Mantras in addition to the other stellar musicians who appear over the 3 days. web: http://themantras.comvid: https://youtu.be/pqpInNhmtxc

Description:
Have you ever attended a concert or festival, but weren't allowed to bring a camera to the event, and stood there in envy as you watched the pro photographers work the photo pit while your favorite artist performed? Well, that could be you. Are you currently shooting shows, but do it as a hobby, for free, and would like to get paid for your efforts? Well, if an artist or venue or event producer is getting value from your work, then you deserve more than just a free ticket for your efforts. You deserve to be paid for your time and creativity. Photographing live music events can be one of the most enjoyable, but also one of the most technically-challenging, forms of the craft out there. Every venue, every stage, and every show is different, presenting unique challenges with stage lighting and performer dynamics. David walks the workshop participants through all of the technical ins and outs to help you build your portfolio, and earn yourself a photo pass for your favorite shows. David also covers the business side of music photography, providing insight to prospective clients, how to market yourself, and to generate various income streams, while also emphasizing professional etiquette both inside and outside of the photo pit.   This workshop is a "must" for anyone who is serious about becoming a professional music photographer, rather than just be someone with a decent camera who wants a free concert ticket and to have some fun. WORKSHOP TOPICS INCLUDE: Overview of Music Photography Building Your Portfolio Obtaining a Photo Pass Life in the Photo Pit Recommended Gear Dealing with Stage Lights Optimum camera settings for live music Lens Selection Composition Professional Etiquette in and out of the Photo Pit Business Opportunities - Getting paid for your work Image Post-Processing Using Adobe Lightroom Image critique session of students' work SKILL LEVEL REQUIREMENTS:  Participants should have a reasonable understanding of the manual exposure controls, and other manual and automatic controls (e.g., auto-focus), of their cameras, and should possess a camera with interchangeable lenses (DSLR or Mirrorless model). Participants should also understand RAW file format, and have software to process this format into a final, universal image file.  Maximum Group Size: Only Ten (10) students Workshop Fee: $249 per person (after March 1, 2019) Early Bird Discounted Ticket: $199 per person (expires 3/1/2019) FAQs Where will we meet? Please enter the workshop venue through the One Stop entrance on College Street (i.e., not through the Asheville Music Hall entrance on Patton Avenue). Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? Participants must be 18 years of age or older. What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? You are responsible for your own transportation to the One Stop at the Asheville Music Hall. All activities will be on site. There are plenty of parking options in Downtown Asheville. What should I bring into the event? Bring your camera and lenses, and any gear that you think you would use to photograph concerts and festivals. A laptop computer with Adobe Lightroom software may also be useful, but not essential. Will we be photographing a live music event? No, but we will have access to the stage and stage lighting upstairs at the Asheville Music Hall, and David will walk the group through some practical exercises in the afternoon. How will our images be critiqued? In the days leading up to the workshop, David will contact all of the participants with instructions regarding the image files needed for the workshop. The filles should be brought to the workshop on a flash / thumb drive. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? David Simchock can be contacted via email on [email protected] What's the refund policy? This event is rain or shine. Are meals included? No, meals are not included. We will take a break about half-way through the workshop for lunch. You may bring a lunch, or pick one up near the venue in Downtown Asheville.

Dee White makes classic-minded country music for the modern world. Raised in small-town Alabama, he's a raw, natural songwriter, spinning the sounds and stories of the American South into songs that nod to the past while still chasing down new horizons. His songs are classics-in-the-making, inspired by traditional sounds but happily rooted in the 21st century. This isn't a throwback act. Instead, it's a contemporary, ageless take on country music one that packs just as strong a punch today as it would've 50 years ago.

Worthwhile Sounds Presents:  Bonnie Bishop Support TBD WHEN: Friday April 5th, 2019 WHERE: Ambrose West 312 Haywood Road Asheville, NC 28806 DOORS: 7pm SHOW: 8pm AGES: All Ages SEATING: Seated Show TICKETS: $15 ADV / $18 DOS / $20 VIP Bonnie Bishop Singer-songwriter Bonnie Bishop and producer Dave Cobb had almost finished recording her 2016 album, Ain’t Who I Was, when Cobb’s cousin Brent burst into the studio with a just-written tune he wanted them to hear. As soon as he and co-writer Adam Hood began playing it, Bishop had a “Killing Me Softly” moment, as if their fingers were strumming her fate — or at least, her manifesto.  In what became the album’s title track, she sings Lord I’m finally proud of who I am now/Thank God it ain’t who I was, her soulful, Dusty-ish voice simultaneously mingling the weariness of struggle, the relief of confession and the power of renewed hope. Turns out that optimism was well placed; Ain’t Who I Was has earned Bishop the best reviews of her career. The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Billboard and Rolling Stone offered praise; the Nashville Scene called it brilliant, noting, “A gifted songwriter and a powerhouse singer, her voice booms with the force of a Texas straight-line squall.” American Songwriter observed, “Her vocals mix the Southern sass of Shelby Lynne with the guts of Susan Tedeschi, leaving room for a fair amount of Bonnie Raitt-styled grit and gumption.” No Depression asserted, “If we can go ahead and choose the BEST album of the year, it's clearly Bonnie Bishop's.” Lonestar Music magazine added, “Bonnie’s brilliant voice makes this gut-punching record a seamless triumph.” And in her childhood hometown, the Houston Press anointed her as the “new queen of country soul.”  That recognition has opened several other doors for Bishop, among them singing on preacher’s son Paul Thorn’s knockout gospel album, Don’t Let the Devil Ride (tracked at Memphis’ legendary Sam Phillips Recording), then joining Thorn on tour, and undertaking her first — and second — Scandinavian tours, plus her first official U.K. trek to coincide with the album’s release there. She also performed on the 2017 Cayamo cruise, and is booked again for 2019.   But scoring the perfect album title track to accompany her six co-writes and three other covers, and working with Nashville’s hottest producer — who helped Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell become award-winning chart toppers — were just two of several fortuitous developments for a woman whose life and career have had more twists than a tornado. The fact that Ain’t Who I Was exists at all is a testament to Bishop’s courage, because doing it represented a huge leap of faith — one she thought she’d never take again before meeting Cobb.  By then, Bishop had spent 13 years on the road, doing all the heavy lifting herself. After five albums, one failed marriage and too many years of not making ends meet, she’d decided to give up — despite earning Grammy and New York Times Song of the Year recognition for co-writing “Not Cause I Wanted To,” which Bonnie Raitt covered on her comeback album, Slipstream. Bishop also had witnessed actor Connie Britton perform another of her tunes, “The Best Songs Come From Broken Hearts,” on the hit TV show Nashville.  At the time, Bishop was living in the show’s namesake city. But she packed her possessions and retreated to her parents’ ranch in Wimberley, Texas, to lick her wounds, mourn her dead dreams and figure out what to do next. For therapy, she began writing stories. “I started seeing these threads connecting through them in a way that allowed me to celebrate what I had done, instead of beating myself up for having failed,” Bishop explains. “I thought maybe I could make a career doing that. So I applied to graduate school.” But before she headed back to Texas, she called Thirty Tigers co-founder David Macias, a friend. Macias, whose multi-faceted entertainment company handles Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, Simpson and Isbell (whose Cobb-produced album won 2015’s Best Americana Album Grammy), told her not to give up.  “You just need to make a great record with a real producer,” he said. Then he put her in touch with Cobb — who was in the midst of producing what became Stapleton’s (and Cobb’s) Grammy winning album, Traveller. After hearing her demos, he told her she should be singing soul, not country, and that he was looking to make an album with a soul singer. Her.  During Bishop’s childhood years in Houston, her mom made sure she got familiar with the Motown sound. After her mom married Bishop’s stepfather, football coach Jackie Sherrill, the family moved to Mississippi so he could turn around Mississippi State’s football program.  She spent fall Saturdays on stadium sidelines, dodging linebackers while toting Sherill’s headset cord, helping him achieve what still stands as the best record in MSU history. During the week, she attended public school and learned how to sing with soul from the girls in choir class, where, unlike Texas, she was a racial minority.  “There’s a lot of Mississippi in me. It’s definitely where learned that I had a voice; it’s also where I found that soulful groove,” Bishop says.  But she’d never fully tapped her soul side, and found the prospect daunting. After an 18-month break from performing, during which she’d finally made peace with her decision and started graduate school, she reflects, “I had doubts about whether or not I could still even sing.”  Despite that fear, and the danger of further heartbreak if she failed, she placed her faith in Cobb and gingerly rekindled a flickering flame of hope.  When Macias heard the tracks she’d recorded, he financed the entire album.  Though enduring what amounted to a break-up with her old identity was painful, Bishop is glad she went through it, because coming out the other side has been nothing short of a rebirth. It’s made her more appreciative of her current success — which includes her namesake fan recording another Bishop tune, “Undone,” on 2016’s Dig in Deep. She’s also performed at the 30A Songwriters Festival, AmericanaFest and other prestigious gatherings, occasionally singing with gospel mavens the McCrary Sisters and other roots music luminaries. She’s also been busy with a variety of new projects since settling in to her new home in Fort Worth, Texas.  One of them is The House Sessions, a just-for-fans album mixing acoustic versions of songs from her early catalog with a few never-before-released tracks.  “I wanted to put new versions out there for super fans who loved me before any of the success from Ain’t Who I Was — the fans who have been there from the beginning who love those songs and ask for them all the time,” she says. It’s also an effort to re-embrace her early career, a time when, by Nashville standards, she was a failure.  But as Nashville’s establishment — and legions of roots music fans — are now well aware, she ain’t who she was. In fact, the self-described “singer/songwriter/storyteller” has not only spun that “failure” into success she couldn’t fathom just a few years ago, she’s vastly expanded her creative pursuits. Bishop’s website features Story and Song, a series of writings about various songs accompanied by video vignettes; she’s also posted Let’s Talk About Bonnie, a beautifully designed and illustrated, printable online book of candid career anecdotes and insights. Bishop is also resuming summer-session graduate studies at Sewanee, and is working on a book about her renowned stepfather, who retired in 2002 after a 30 years as a head coach at Pitt, Texas A&M and Mississippi State.  “I learned so much from him about perseverance — how to get back up after you get knocked down; how to chase a dream — all the things I would need to know to survive the music business,” she says with a laugh. And yes, Bishop is preparing to record a follow-up to her life-changing 2016 album. She already has a title: The Walk. Like Ain’t Who I Was, it will be full of soul. And truth.  Follow Bonnie Bishop here:  Official Website: bonniebishop.com Facebook: facebook.com/bonniebishop Twitter: twitter.com/bonniebishop Instagram: instagram.com/bonniebishopforrockstar YouTube: youtube.com/BonnieBishopOfficial

Consistently upbeat and optimistic, they convey a firm sense that age ought not diminish a lust for living. Then again, that’s been Forbert’s mantra for quite some time—honoring his past while plowing his way towards the future.

Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, the Subdudes have quietly become one of Americas national music treasures.The New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock n roll attitude and folky social consciousness not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing youll ever hear from any five musicians.Led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist, John Magnie, The Subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending blues, gospel, funk, and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the bands substitution of a tambourine player, Steve Amede, for a drummer. Tim Cook rounds out the band on bass.

Genre: Progressive Sci-Fi Middle Eastern FusionTickets: adv. $10 / dos. $12Show: 9PM (Doors: 8PM)Ages: 21+ Consider the Source NYC trio Consider the Source defy easy description. If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, it’d probably just sound like a CTS tribute band. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion”, the band’s music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal. A relentless touring schedule has won the band a fervent following from California to Israel, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies and jazz cats to corpse-painted headbangers and prog geeks.Formed in 2004, Consider the Source features Gabriel Marin on fretless double-neck guitar, bassist John Ferrara, and drummer/percussionist Jeff Mann. Called “the guiding light for his generation of six-stringers”, Marin channels the mystical fury of McLaughlin and Coltrane into wailing melodies, kaleidoscopic soundscapes and boneshaking riffs. With a background in classical musics both Eurpoean and Indian, and an instinct for avant-jazz and destructive metal, Marin’s hypnotic fusion of styles is ever unpredictable. Ferrara’s propulsive, percussive attack, equally suited to simple grooves and impossible chords, can ground the music or launch it into space. His madcap gumbo of slap bass, Indian rhythms, earthy minimalism and complex tapping constantly pushes into strange new worlds, whilst still dropping thick booty-clap beats. Underneath them lies Mann’s rolling thunder; dense rhythmic architecture built from pure swagger and bounce. Half double-bass prog-metal, half crackle-pop Buddy Rich swing, with African and Balkan swirls, Mann’s muscular, freewheeling polyrhythms are the engine fuel for Consider’s multiversal mischief. Even when not improvising, Consider’s music is always a conversation, a roiling stew of dynamic interplay. Each member of Consider the Source alternately leads and follows, spars and assists; in any single song, alliances are made and broken, bargains struck and divorces finalized.Touring from coast to coast, as well as Europe and the Middle East, has not only earned the band thousands of fans, but has allowed them to perform with a wide variety of well-known artists, including Victor Wooten, Wayne Krantz, King Crimson Projekt, Kris Myers (Umphrey’s McGee), Wyclef Jean, Andy Statman, Matt Darriau (Paradox Trio), Oteil Burbridge, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Dumpstaphunk, Keller Williams, George Porter, Jr., Jeff Sipe, Panzerballet (Germany), Eatliz (Israel), Freak Kitchen (Sweden), Morglbl (France), and many others. They have performed at numerous festivals and events, including Burning Man, Gathering of the Vibes, the NYC Fretless Guitar Festival, Catskill Chill, Sun Seekers Ball (Canada), Aura Music & Arts Festival (Florida), Jazz Fest (New Orleans), Head For The Hills Festival & SXSW (Texas), Rootwire (Ohio), and the NYC Gypsy Festival. The band’s latest release, “World War Trio (Part 1)” (2014) is available at considerthesourcemusic.bandcamp.com. vid: https://youtu.be/ZgPxonn-iewweb: http://www.considerthesourcemusic.com

There once was a hero named Emma G, who dared to venture into Asheville, North Carolina - in search for a superhero. Is it you? Crow and Quill is proud to feature international singer/songwriter Emma G with accompaniment from percussionist Joey J Drums during their SUPERHERO tour! Doors open at 8pm with a $10 entry for this amazing show! Merch and music also available for sale! More info at: http://emmagmusic.com Watch SUPERHERO here: https://bit.ly/2LEhHTb ABOUT EMMA G: Finding her voice as she rediscovers her American heritage from her home base in Washington DC, New Zealand-born singer/songwriter Emma G is a combination of Adele, Pink, Amy Winehouse, and Alanis Morrissette. Her edgy tones and gutsy lyrics hammer home her messages of love, vulnerability, empowerment and strength with a soul-pop/rock sound that is engaging, inspiring and appealing to a hugely diverse audience. Unapologetically outspoken, flying her freak flag, and always smiling, Washingtonian Magazine dubbed Emma G as one of the “Best of DC”. One Love Massive describes her as “charismatic”, and ANR Factory describes her voice as "poignant and beautiful” with “astounding bravery to speak up” on issues that matter to her. And where did this bravery come from? A long history of health issues, brain surgeries, battles with depression and suicide, drug addiction, and sexual assault, yet still finding the inner strength to come out the other side positively: singing her truth. “Things that happen to us don’t make us who we are, but we all need to overcome struggles. The trick is to overcome them together.” Says Emma G. “My hope is that my music will not only resonate with individual people, but also ignite those flames of love, resilience and community”.
