Cory Wells, Kaska Sun
Mar 9 @ 7:30 pm

Cory Wells is an alternative singer/songwriter from Charlotte, NC. Hailing from New Orleans, LA, born into a family of musicians, Cory finds himself armed with a 6 string Alvarez acoustic guitar at 15 years old, and a fiery rage to send his love of music out into the open heart. Crafting his guitar, piano and violin skills, he embarks early on a mission to write songs based on his extraordinary and challenging life, leading him into forming his first music project, a duo named Jacobs Well.

Inspired by the honest and raw storytelling of Rob Thomas , Wells finds solace and escape from broken home to grouphomes by putting life’s struggle and trials into lyrics and melodies. This will later shape Well’s trademark melancholic yet powerfully soaring vocal reminiscent of the great classic rock vocalists of the 80’s. 

At only 17, Cory enters and wins the prestigious ”Queen City Idol” competition with ”Jacobs Well”. Consequently he forms wildly edgy rock band MANIC at 19, earning much notoriety, titles in music competitions by regional radio stations and a successful tour of the US. Wells later reconstructs and re-names the band to FALLING THROUGH APRIL, leading to label opportunities, festival appearances, support slots for established acts like Third Eye Blind, and studio sessions with renowned producers such as Rene Moore ( Rene & Angela, Jay-Z, Michael Jackson) and Mitch Easter (R.E.M.). The band remains together touring for several years before parting ways, and Cory follows up with his debut EP release of ”The New Old” under his new project ”Subliminal Confession”, featuring a sold out EP release in Charlotte. 

Staying true to his heart, in a passionate pursuit of a solo career beginning in 2016, Cory’s music currently goes under the name of Cory M. Wells. In anticipation of releasing his debut solo EP, ”Out from the dark” on May 4, Wells released his debut music video for his single ”Running Wild”, and embarks on a 20 date US tour from September 2018.

Often compared to Dallas Green and James Bay, Wells puts his own stamp on heartfelt melodic rock with vocal loops, stunning harmonies and honest stories of life’s unexpected turns, family, long distance love, finding strength in loss, and turning pain into something beautiful.

Jocelyn & Chris Arndt Band
Mar 9 @ 8:00 pm

Devastatingly powerful vocals & retro-rock guitar, with lyrics that run the gamut from vulnerable to all-out venomous: Jocelyn & Chris Arndt are creating a new generation of authentic album rock.

“Their show is like walking into a theatre expecting a Disney classic and finding a Quentin Tarantino flick instead.” -New Haven Independent

“Her voice will grab you by the collar, bang your head on the table, and make you pay attention.” -Baeble Music

“Raw emotion, blues-and-soul inflected power, and an energy level you wish some acts on the radio today would have.” A Sides / Huffington Post

“The Arndts owned the stage with inferno-like intensity (think Amy Winehouse x Janis Joplin x Fiona Apple).” -Edge Television / Hollywood, CA

“Imagine Stevie Nicks meets Stevie Ray Vaughan.” -Punchland

“The Arndts sound like they were raised on 60’s rock records, and would enjoy having a drink with the ghost of Janis Joplin.” -New York Scene Report

The ties that bind any siblings vary in strength. For Jocelyn and Chris Arndt, those ties are made of carbon fiber. “He’s my best friend,” says Jocelyn. And to be able to chase this shared dream with my best friend, well, that’s everything.” And chase it they have, from their first concert in elementary school all the way to their position as national-touring and recording artists today. Parade Magazine calls their energy “gripping”; the Huffington Post calls it “raw emotion.” Relix calls it “galvanic” and “crackling.” Conveying the power in their live show, to be sure, is difficult. One only knows that it’s powerful, mesmerizing, unforgettable, and uniquely their own.

Southern Culture on the Skids, with Esther Rose
Mar 9 @ 8:00 pm

Southern Culture On The Skids has been consistently recording and touring around the world since its inception in 1983, when Rick Miller was a grad student at UNC-Chapel Hill. The current lineup (Dave Hartman – drums; Mary Huff – bass and vocals; Rick Miller – guitar and vocals) has been playing together for over 30 years. The band’s musical journey has taken them from all-night NC house parties to late night network talk shows, and from performing at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan to rockin’ out for the inmates at NC Correctional Facilities. Their music has been featured in movies and TV, and used to sell everything from diamonds to pork sausage, and their legendary live shows are a testament to the therapeutic powers of foot-stomping, butt-shaking rock and roll.

Bootleggers Choice is the brand new album from Southern Culture On The Skids. The album features 16 all-new recordings of the most requested songs from the bands long out-of-print major label releases, Dirt Track Date (1995) and Plastic Seat Sweat (1997), plus a re-mastered edition of the original 1991 recording of ‘Camel Walk’ from the Santo Sings EP. These 16 new recordings were tracked and mixed by Rick Miller and the original engineer/producer of Dirt Track Date and Plastic Seat Sweat, the one and only Mark Williams, at Ricks rural NC studio (and SCOTS clubhouse) The Kudzu Ranch. Double LP, CD, and digital available for pre-order Sept 14th, in stores Nov 16th .

Mickey Stephens & Friends
Mar 9 @ 10:30 pm

Mickey Stephens is a songwriter/musician from Northern Ireland. He fronted Irish punk soul band The Mighty Shamrocks but emigrated to America in 1985 to escape the “troubles”. He eventually settled in South Carolina. In Charlotte in 2014, Mickey began recording new songs and enlisted Otis Hughes on bass. Poor Blue was formed from this nucleus with Jeff Kephart on drums and Tom Williams on lead guitar. 

In March 2018, the group released “Wasteground”, a biographical song cycle about Stephens’ childhood and youth during the Northern Irish troubles. This collection of moody, jazz, punk & folk influenced songs about Stephens’ journey through PTSD has been highly praised in America and Europe. 

Berlin DJ Lord Litter: “The album has incredible depth”
John Amen in No Depression: “a sublime work or art”
Mark Kemp in Creative Loafing: “mesmerizing”
Robert Kreutzer in Garagerocktopia: “the very best songs about that period I have heard. The lyrics and music indeed convey the darkness of what that time must have been like.”

Wasteground was recently named one of the top ten albums of the year by Creative Loafing.

Jason Eady
Mar 12 @ 7:30 pm

On his last two albums, Jason Eady earned major acclaim for his ahead-of-thecurve take on classic country, a bold departure from his earlier excursions into blues-infused Americana. Now with his sixth album, the Mississippi-bred singer/guitarist merges his distinct sensibilities into a stripped-down, rootsoriented
sound that starkly showcases the gritty elegance of his songwriting.
The follow-up to 2014’s critically praised Daylight/Dark—an album that “belongs on a shelf next to Dwight Yoakam’s Buenos Noches from a Lonely Room, Joe Ely’s Letter to Laredo, and yes, even Willie Nelson’s Phases and Stages,” according to AllMusic—Eady’s latest finds the Fort Worth, Texas-based artist
again teaming up with producer Kevin Welch. Now longtime collaborators (with their past efforts including 2012’s AM Country Heaven, a top 40 debut on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart), Eady and Welch worked closely in crafting
the album’s acoustic-driven yet lushly textured aesthetic. “At the beginning I told everyone I wanted to make a record where, if the power went out, we could still sit down and play all the songs the exact same way,” says Eady, who points out that steel guitar is the only electric instrument featured on the album.
Despite its subtle approach, the album radiates a warm vitality that’s got much to do with Eady’s gift for nuanced yet unaffected slice-of-life storytelling. “I’ve always been drawn to writing that’s got a simplicity to it, where you’re digging deep into real day-to-day life,” he notes. Here, that means touching on such
matters as turning 40 (on the reflective, soul-stirring “40 Years”), his daughter’s growing up and going off to college (on the sweetly heartbreaking “Not Too Loud”), and the everyday struggle to “embrace the messy parts of life instead of
trying to get the point where you’ve somehow fixed all your problems” (on “Rain,” a joyfully determined anthem featuring SteelDrivers fiddler Tammy Rogers). Throughout the album, Eady’s soulfully rugged voice blends in beautiful harmonies with his wife, singer/songwriter Courtney Patton. And on “No Genie in This Bottle,” the legendary Vince Gill lends his singular vocals to what Eady refers to as a “good old country drinking song.”
In each track, Eady reveals a sharp sense of songcraft he’s honed since childhood. “Even back in my early days of getting into music, I always cared more about the writers than the singers,” says Eady, who grew up in Jackson.

Lawrence with Nathan Angelo
Mar 12 @ 8:00 pm

“The brother/sister musical phenomenon you need to hear.” – Affinity

“Lawrence is already a force to reckon with — and they’re only getting started.” – LadyGunn

“Each [song] was keyboard-driven, energetic and featured the mind-blowing vocal arrangements of Clyde and Gracie.” – Pancakes and Whiskey

“If this groovy corner of the New York City scene is going to take the world by storm, Lawrence may well be its best bet for the future.” – Live For Live Music

“The rich nine-piece arrangements pay tribute to Motown, Muscle Shoals, and everything in between…” – Relix Magazine

“Soul-Pop duo on the edge of a breakthrough.” – Popdust

“Lawrence is carefully carving out a place for themselves in pop music and redefining the genre along the way.” – Femme Riot

As NPR writes, “siblings Clyde and Gracie Lawrence are not your typical pair.” Clyde Lawrence, 24, and Gracie Lawrence, 21, have been writing songs and listening to countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, and Aretha Franklin records together in the living room of their family’s New York City apartment since they were little kids. After years of playing together, they officially created Lawrence, an eight-piece soul-pop band comprised of powerhouse musicians who happen to be their best friends from childhood and college. The keyboard-driven rhythm section and tight, energetic horns create dynamic arrangements to support Clyde and Gracie’s explosive lead vocals and catchy melodies.

Their sophomore album, aptly titled Living Room, was released in September 2018. Living Room promptly reached #2 on the iTunes R&B/Soul chart, earned a featured placement on Spotify’s “New Music Friday” playlist, and led the band to its late-night television debut on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly. The album ranges from R&B/funk feel-good pop songs to soulful and cinematic ballads. Co-produced by bandmates Jordan Cohen (tenor/baritone saxophone) and Jonny Koh (guitar), Brooklyn-based producer Eli Crews, and Clyde and Gracie themselves, Living Room chronicles the life of two kids growing up into (almost) fully formed humans and the trials and tribulations along the way, including break-ups, make-ups, a family loss, and the attempt to find harmony between excitement, anxiety, melancholy, and empowerment. Sonically, the album combines elements of Lawrence’s old and new influences by mixing live with electronic, analog with digital, and meticulousness with spontaneity. 

Upon releasing Living Room, Lawrence embarked on the Living Room World Tour, including a full set of headline dates across North America and support and festival slots across Europe. With their high-energy sound and completely live arrangements, they have gained a devoted following of all ages, demographics, and musical backgrounds. Lawrence has sold out headline shows across the country and appeared at festivals including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Firefly, Okeechobee, Hangout, and many more. The band has also opened for notable acts such as Lake Street Dive, Vulfpeck, Jon Bellion, Soulive, Jacob Collier, Blues Traveler, O.A.R, Bernhoft, and others.

Lawrence rose to prominence in 2016 when they released their debut LP Breakfast (2016), which reached #6 on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts, and received attention and praise from a variety of sources ranging from NPR’s All Things Considered to Stephen Curry’s social media. Produced by Grammy Award winner Eric Krasno (Lettuce/Tedeschi Trucks/Soulive), Breakfast includes guest performances by NYC soul/funk mainstays Adam Deitch (Lettuce), Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy), and Maurice “Mobetta” Brown (Tedeschi Trucks Band).

Cody Webb, Tom Mackell
Mar 13 @ 7:30 pm

Singer, songwriter, and musician Cody Webb has played hundreds of dates across the country, earning thousands of fans with his keen vocals and distinctive guitar skills. With his single “She’s Carolina,’ Cody was able to pull on the heartstrings of his native South Carolinians and draw them in like never before. After a lot of hard work and support from some of the best fans out there, Cody received over one million views on his Facebook “She’s Carolina” lyric video, as well as 100k+ streams and growing. 

Having grown up in the small town of Ridge Spring, SC, Cody’s childhood consisted of hunting, fishing, sports, and music. His mother was the music minister at his hometown church and his father was a singer-songwriter and musician, so it came as no surprise when Cody chose to follow in their footsteps and take his own path into the music world. He began playing guitar at a young age, with musical roots that were planted in southern rock. “I was influenced by Lynryd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, and many other classic rock bands.” His first big gig was at the South Carolina Poultry Festival, playing alongside his father’s band. With shaking hands and a mere twelve years of age, Cody had his spotlight moment playing the intro to “The Ballad of Curtis Lowe.’ It was that moment that Cody knew he wanted to be a guitar player, setting his eye on headlining the festival himself one day. 

Cody went on to major in mechanical engineering at Clemson University. ‘I wanted to play the downtown bars so bad,’ he says. ‘My first college gig was a party my friends threw during my freshman year. Eventually, I talked a local venue into letting me play one Wednesday. We packed it out and I never had a problem booking a date in Clemson after that.’ Cody soon found himself drawn to his more recent musical influences. “I always liked country, especially older country, but it wasn’t until my early college years, after listening to Eric Church, that I really got into modern country; he made me fall in love with the art of songwriting.” With that in mind, Cody booked nearly every weekend and ventured out regionally playing 160 plus dates during his senior year. ‘I played as much as I could and saved as much money as I could, knowing Nashville had to be my next destination.’

After years of hard work and traveling back and forth to Nashville, Cody finally achieved his goal of permanently moving to Music City in 2014. Cody has since grown and evolved, not only a singer and musician, but as a songwriter as well. “I believe what I do starts with a song and that a song is the foundation of what we do in the music business. As an artist, I’ve always wanted to take writing very seriously. I don’t want to put my style in a box; I just want to always release great songs that make me feel something.” Since making the move to Nashville, Cody has written over 150 songs and released a self-titled EP, as well as three singles (“More Than a Little,’ “She’s Carolina,” and his 2017 release “Don’t Tell Me I Won’t,” co-written with hit songwriter Jason Matthews). Perhaps the most notable part of Cody’s year so far is landing his first cut, “Memories Are Made Of,” co-written with Luke Combs and Ray Fulcher, on Combs’ debut album “This One’s For You.’ Cody has also had the opportunity to open for country artists LoCash, Cole Swindell, Lonestar, Frankie Ballard, Easton Corbin, and more. In Spring 2017, Cody lived out his childhood dream of headlining the South Carolina Poultry Festival, bringing in the largest crowd to date. 

Cody continues to set high goals and take chances. “Music is in my blood and I will keep writing and playing songs I love as long as people keep listening. I thank God every day for the opportunity to do what I love and for the fans that support what I do. Anytime someone asks me what I believe it takes to make it in this business, I respond, ‘I think you have to have a never-ending drive and love for what you do, find your own way and be a little too crazy to quit.’”

Tank and the Bangas, Maggie Koerner, Alfred Banks
Mar 13 @ 8:00 pm

Coming from New Orleans, Tank and the Bangas are surrounded by plenty of grand musical traditions. And the five-piece group has a rare knack for combining various musical styles—fiery soul, deft hip-hop, deep-groove R&B and subtle jazz—into one dazzling, cohesive whole that evokes the scope of New Orleans music while retaining a distinctive feel all its own.

“It’s music that can’t really be put in a box,” says singer and poet Tarriona “Tank” Ball. She fronts the band with vivid charisma that helped Tank and the Bangas win NPR’s 2017 Tiny Desk Concert Contest by unanimous acclaim, standing out among 6,000 entrants because of what Bob Boilen called “the depth of their lyricism and the versatility of their players.” Those same qualities also attracted the attention of Verve Records, which has signed the band.

Ball’s lyrical depth has been years in the making. She came up in the strong local slam poetry scene before meeting her bandmates: Merell Burkett on keyboards, Joshua Johnson on drums, Norman Spence on bass and synth keys and, eventually, Albert Allenback on alto sax and flute. “Growing up, I always could sing, but I wrote better than I sang, so I focused on writing,” she says. After her team won the National Poetry Slam Championship two years in a row, Ball turned her full attention to Tank and the Bangas.

What started as a loose collaboration at an open-mic night in 2011 has grown into a mesmerizing musical force that’s only picking up speed. After a featured set at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival early in the band’s career, the musicians built a reputation outside their hometown by grinding it out on the road, honing their live show and releasing the 2013 album Think Tank, all the while converting audiences into passionate fans and garnering critical acclaim, from the New Orleans Advocate to The New York Times. “It made us work hard,” Ball says of playing Jazz Fest. “It made us want to feel deserving of it.”

Their hard work is paying off: The Huffington Post says Tank and the Bangas defy description onstage, adding, “It’s music that you have to experience.” The experience is subject to change from one night to the next.

“One show will feel very electronic, or hip-hop, and another show will feel slow and vibe-y and jazzy, and then another show will just be poetry and off-the-cuff riffs,” says Johnson. “As a band, we don’t like to hear ourselves do the same thing for too long, so we might change a small thing here or there, and if we change enough small things, it seems like a big change.”

Tank and the Bangas won the Tiny Desk contest with “Quick,” a riotous single they released in 2017 (and soon accompanied with a cheeky, not entirely safe-for-work video). There’s more new music where that came from as the group works on the follow-up to Think Tank. “It’s going to be awesome,” Ball says. “It’s going to be fun, and a little vulnerable at the same time.”

The band’s ongoing evolution involves more than just music: Ball continues to grow and develop as a performer and writer. Even back in the open-mic days, she was a force of nature. “I don’t know if there’s such a thing as too free, but it was totally uninhibited. She was inspired,” Spence says, laughing at the memory. More recently, Ball has become less of a dervish onstage—“I was running around so much I didn’t have time to sing at all,” she say—while finding new ways of expressing herself as a writer.

“I don’t just think about myself when I write now,” she says. “Just being with my bandmates taught me to think more about other people. And when you have an audience of people ready to listen to you, you’re excited to connect with them, you really are.”

Nothing More
Mar 15 @ 6:30 pm

 

There are a lot of bands who claim to wear their hearts on their sleeves, but for Texan quartet Nothing More that sentiment could scarcely be more literal. “When we first started, we branded ourselves on the arm after each year of touring, so we’ve all got these scars now, reminding us of the commitment we made to each other,” confides frontman Jonny Hawkins. To say that this is a band who are dedicated to their cause would be to understate the case somewhat. 

Hailing from San Antonio, Nothing More is a four-headed musical hydra that runs on frenetic passion, unswerving DIY spirit and relentless sonic experimentation. Part schizoid System Of A Down weird-isms, part Mars Volta-esque prog rock freak out, part effortless pop nous, they seamlessly barrel from churning headbang to skyscraping chorus and back again in the blink of an eye. Capable of bombastic bounce that hits as hard as an uppercut to the jaw when they fancy it, the boys from The Alamo City are equally able to dial down their bluster into deft moments of crystalline beauty when the mood takes them. It’s a gut-punching blend made all the more powerful by a keen lyrical sophistication and philosophical undertone which both belies their years and marks them out from their contemporaries. 

Forming initially as Middle school kids whose aspirations were as serious then as they are now, Nothing More’s early development took place against a backdrop of suburban boredom and rabid musical obsession. Having tasted the addictive elixir of rock ‘n’ roll the band realized they were at a crossroads when they reached college age. “Everyone was telling us to stay in school,” admits Hawkins “but for us that would have been settling. Having a plan B is a recipe for failure. We decided that we had to ignore everyone’s advice and totally dedicate ourselves to being in this band.”

And dedicate themselves they did. From fixing up their first tour van out of a derelict, raccoon infested RV to making their own stage rigs for their impassioned live show, the quartet literally built everything they have from the ground up. Those first tours, the ones that wrought the aforementioned scars, were formative in more ways than one. As the four young men saw and experienced more of the world, their spiritual and philosophical outlook began to evolve. “That period of growth was a real struggle for us individually and collectively,” confirms Hawkins “but it made us a lot more open to other ideas and gave us a deeper faith in our own instincts. I think that reflects in our music.” 

The drips of those new ideas eventually became a flood and the narrow lens of the western paradigm they were born into was soon replaced with a more holistic world view, striking a balance between rationalism, empiricism and their own intuitions. It’s the journey to find truth that has enabled them deal with the existential and the personal in equal measure, and, more importantly, rendered them a band with something to say and no fear of saying it. 

Nothing More are that rarest of things, a band with the heart, the soul, the brains and the guts to capture your heart and spark your mind. A new generation of rock stars who are unconcerned with fabricated notions of how and where they might fit in or what the hottest trend is, but simply focused on making honest, passionate art with real intent. “We want to be a church for people who don’t believe the things that churches believe,” concludes Hawkins. “We want to connect people and connect with people.” And what better way to do that than with uncompromising music built on uncompromised principles, fought for and earned the hard way. Nothing More? Accept nothing less.

Tony Lucca and Eliot Bronson
Mar 15 @ 7:30 pm

Tony Lucca is a Nashville-based singer/songwriter who’s catalogue of music runs the gambit from soul-infused pop to tear-jerker folk balladry. His music has been featured in shows like Parenthood, Friday Night Lights, Felicity and Brothers and Sisters. He was a frequent member of the house band on Last Call with Carson Daly where he performed alongside then fellow up-and-comers like Kamasi Washington, Zane Carney and Brian Wright, stalwarts like Marc Ford and Cordovas front man, Joe Firstman. In 2012, Lucca took 3rd on NBC’s The Voice, earning himself a record deal with coach Adam Levine’s 222 Records. He has toured alongside such artists as Sara Bareilles, Jonny Lang, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, Rachel Yamagata, Emerson Hart and Gabe Dixon. Lucca currently resides in Nashville with his wife, Rachel, their kids Liam and Sparrow, along with their dog Apple.

Eliot Bronson:

Picture a street in working-class Baltimore some 30 years ago. Kids play in the shadows of the row houses that line the sidewalks. Their parents sit on the stoops leading up to front doors. It all seems normal at first glance. 

But zoom in on one of these homes — that old duplex built back when this part of town was still mainly open fields. Inside is a completely different community, where fundamentalism, hippie values and volatile, unpredictable emotions coexist and collide. Escape is difficult: the only way out is to pass through the bedrooms of people you might be trying to get away from.

This is where Eliot Bronson grew up. Yeah, he often wanted to slip away from there, but the first thing he saw once he exited was the Pentecostal Church across the street where his father and grandfather had preached and where congregants spoke in tongues.

So Eliot looked inward instead.

“For better or worse, I’ve always been a weirdo,” he remembers. “I was reading about Zen Buddhism when all my friends were getting high and drunk in high school.

“Of course,” he adds, “I did all that stuff later.”

He also observed. In this kaleidoscopic family, where glossolalia and, on occasion, alcohol-fueled ravings, sometimes bled into each other, Bronson found shelter in music. At age 15, he got his first guitar and started teaching himself to play. “Right away, I wanted to write my own songs,” he says. “My house was pretty chaotic, crazy, and unhealthy, so I took to music like it was a life raft. It was something I could do to keep myself alive.”

Punk rock was his shelter at first. Then one day his dad put on a few of his favorite LPs — Bob Dylan’s The Times They Are A-Changin’, something by Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry. Eliot had heard these albums a thousand times before. This time, though…

“… it resonated with me,” Eliot says. “It wasn’t just in the background. I tuned into it for the first time. There was a magic and a power there. It didn’t talk down to the listener but it was also high art. It asked you to be smart and to become a better version of yourself. For me, this was a moment when it became my music, not just my parents’ music.”

From local coffee houses and venues beyond Baltimore, Bronson sharpened his writing and performance. He cultivated a working approach that involved singing to himself as ideas came to him and never jotting down chord changes or lyrics once he had committed the finished version to memory. A local following grew. Astute observers saw something different in the young artist’s work. The Baltimore Sun even anointed him “a folk singing wunderkind.”

Lil Tracy
Mar 15 @ 8:00 pm

Lil Tracy’s star has dense history and context; at one point in time dubbed Souljawitch, Yung Bruh, Tracy Minaj, and Tracy (not necessarily in that order), the former THRAXXHOUSE and current GOTHBOICLIQUE member is known for his emo, punk, and cloud-infused rap and early collaborations with Lil Peep and the other artists and producers of GBC.
Born October 3, 1995 as Jazz Butler in Newark, NJ, he spent most of his childhood in Virginia Beach. He is the son of Ishmael Butler (Digable Planets, Shabazz Palaces) and Coko Clemons (SWV), both successful musicians. At 18, he moved to LA where his career took off after accumulating several hits as a member of GBC and putting out popular solo projects like Tracy’s Manga, XOXO and Life of a Popstar. Lil Tracy currently resides in Brooklyn, NY.

In 2018, he was nominated for Band of the Year at the Blues Music Awards. He has shared the stage with the likes of Robert Plant, the Allman Brothers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Mavis Staples, and Patty Griffin among many others. As a music producer, Cody has worked with a wide range of artists including Lucero, Cisco Adler, and Ian Siegal.

Cody Dickinson is what one might call an artistic entrepreneur in the fields of music and film. Over the course of his career Cody has contributed to several major motion picture soundtracks, including Barnyard, Snoop’s Hood of Horror, The Mechanic, Black Snake Moan, and Brand the film. In recent years Cody has transitioned from creating music for films to producing films. Cody’s remarkable  ability for filmmaking emerged after he began producing short videos documenting the experiences of North Mississippi Allstars on tour. After accumulating years of footage from the road, Cody turned the band’s experiences in to a visual narrative for the North Mississippi Allstars 2014 album World Boogie Is Coming.

Cody’s most recent achievement in film is the award-winning documentary he produced and co created, Take Me to the River. An incredible journey through the music of Memphis, the film brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together and captures the creative process of recording a historic new album. Cody also co-produced the soundtrack for the documentary, which pairs music legends and contemporary artists as they reinterpret songs that define the soul of American music.

Lords of Acid, Orgy, Genitorturers, Little Miss Nasty
Mar 16 @ 6:30 pm

From his first single, ‘I Sit On Acid’, released in 1988, to the present, Belgium’s Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release ‘Lust’, to the electro-thrash of 2012’s ‘Deep Chills’ Lords of Acid has re-defined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for nearly three decades! Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases. Praise The Lords, Misbehave!

James Maddock
Mar 16 @ 7:30 pm

The best singer-songwriters serve the song. The songwriter’s songwriter, James Maddock, who has earned the respect of masterful writers such as Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nile, has built his acclaimed legacy on humbly honoring purity of expression. Many albums in his beloved catalog are elegantly spare, conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way. But for his latest album, The Green, the songs guided him into recording the most eclectic, exhilaratingly soulful, and imaginatively produced album in his career.

“This is my best album. It’s an upbeat record with really strong songs and a lot of surprises,” the British transplant reveals. “It all happened really naturally. I just listened to where the songs where going and allowed myself the time to give each one a proper sonic home.”

Since 1999, James Maddock’s boldly vulnerable songwriting, honeyed rasp, and distinct folk and Americana aesthetic have garnered acclaim from icons, peers, and tastemaking outlets like NPR, American Songwriter, Relix Magazine, and CMT Edge. Relix notes: “James Maddock possesses the kind of lived-in, craggy voice that would sound authoritative if he were singing the sports pages. Fortunately, he doesn’t need to do that because his compositional skills are a match for his delivery.” His consistency as a recording artist and a captivating live performer have attracted a devoted fanbase engaged and generous enough to fan fund the last two entries in his six-album oeuvre. He’s performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and has built a respected international profile through tireless touring from the Northeast US to Europe to Australia.

Previous to his solo career, James was the frontman for the Columbia Records band Wood. It was in this context that he was first introduced to a mainstream audience when songs from the group’s debut, Songs From Stamford Hill, were prominently featured in Dawson’s Creek. In 2003, Maddock relocated from England to New York, and, soon after, launched his solo career. His 2009 solo album Sunrise On Avenue C won a New York Music Award for “Best Americana Album,” while its follow-up, Wake Up And Dream, ranked among the top albums of 2011 in WFUV’s (NYC) Listener Poll.

The Green truly captures NPR’s accolade that “his timeless songwriting style, which seems to draw from great songwriters of every era, conveys quiet confidence and lovely intimacy.”

Tropidelic + Roots of a Rebellion
Mar 16 @ 8:00 pm

“Every single second is a blessing if you count them all,” sings frontman Matthew Roads. You can hear the sincerity in his voice; the joie de vivre that oozes from everything Tropidelic does is apparent. When they take a stage, their synergy flows member to member—horns blow, knees kicked high and grins are passed from one man to the next. Almost immediately it spreads to the crowd, lifting hands in the air as their feet begin to move and the pulse collectively becomes that of one.
The six-piece band from Cleveland, Ohio may be far from any tropical islands but that doesn’t stop them from dishing out an interesting mix of reggae, hip – hop and high energy funk for audiences across the country. Tropidelic has a deep and widespread appreciation for music that can be heard in each note. Some of the members are hip-hop heads, while others are into metal, funk or reggae. But each of these genres lends something to their collective sound. “We pride ourselves in being original in our musicality and personality as a band,” says Roads, “but also in not taking ourselves so seriously that it ruins the fun.”

For their forthcoming 2017 release, “Heavy is The Head”, Tropidelic carefully vetted what songs made it to the record, and featured songwriting efforts from members James and Darrick. Sound engineer Cary Crichlow, who has worked on the last four releases from the band, returned to get the job done. “Our socio-political views vary as much as our musical tastes and always seep into the music” says Roads. “There’s certainly a lot that needs said, but on this record we tried to be well-rounded and touch on a broad scope of emotions.”

These seasoned road dogs can be found spreading their soulful sound across the country in both intimate venues and music festivals, having shared the stage with and supported such acts as Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, Pepper and The Wailers. Previously, Tropidelic has been featured at Werk Out Festival, Reggae on the River, Night Lights Music Festival, an appearance at Warped Tour, SXSW and supporting Badfish through the East and Midwest. In 2017, the band is focused on headlining tours as well as performing at Electric Forest, Burning Foot Festival, Surrounded By The Sound, Bragg Jam, Shadefest and much more. Stay tuned for more from Cleveland’s home-grown, Tropidelic.
