Ross Newell (lead singer of The Mulligan Brothers) w/ Oh Jeremiah
Aug 22 @ 7:30 pm
Ross Newell

Ross Newell

Ross Newell can usually be seen and heard as the lead singer and songwriter in The Mulligan Brother from Mobile AL, a band that has toured throughout the U.S. and Europe. His song writing weaves heartfelt tales of love and loss into complex yet comforting storytelling, the combination of which will leave you nostalgic for something (or someone) that you can’t quite put your finger on. With a remarkable universality, you could as easily imagine the tales spilling from the mouth of a storied, laugh-lined old man as his teenage grandson grieves his first heartbreak. He sings and plays about where they’ve been in a way that makes us all realize we’ve been there, too. Songs written and performed by Newell have over 9 million combined streams on Spotify.

“Newell’s voice tends to be very contemporary. He often overlays the rippling flow of the music with a fast-paced, verbose patter, and he packs songs with sharp imagery. Newell has a gift for phrases that pop out and grab you, even when you’ve set the album playing in the background. ” — Lawrence Specker, AL.com 

“If you’re a fan of Trampled by Turtles, then you’re going to feel right at home listening to Ross Newell on lead vocals.” — Regional Musician Magazine 

“Singer/songwriter Ross Newell bring a warmth and finely crafted talent to the experience and the superb vocal tone of Newell is without doubt one of the finest live voices I have heard in some time. Newell is a fine writer and his eye for a couplet is as finely honed as ever. ” — Paul McGee, Lonesome Highway Magazine

Oh Jeremiah

Oh Jeremiah

Oh, Jeremiah is the singer/songwriter duo made up of Jeremiah Stricklin and his wife Erin. Started in south Mississippi, the couple draws its inspiration from the storytelling nature of their home state, echoing the likes of Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. Oh, Jeremiah is known for its harmonies in the style of the Civil Wars and their peculiar onstage banter . Their latest EP, Our Very Own Kingdom was released independently and broke the top 20 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart and carried them from coast to coast.
OVER THE RHINE with LEIGH NASH
Aug 22 @ 8:00 pm

Over The Rhine

When you listen to Over the Rhine, the supremely talented musical couple comprised of Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler, you quickly fall under the spell of Karin’s timeless voice “which has the power to stop the world in its tracks” (Performing Songwriter). But then the songs start hitting you. Paste Magazine writes, “Over the Rhine creates true confessional masterpieces that know neither border nor boundary” and included Bergquist and Detweiler in their list of 100 Best Living Songwriters. Rolling Stone recently wrote, Over the Rhine is a band “with no sign of fatigue, whose moment has finally arrived.” That’s quite a sentiment for a band celebrating 30 years of writing, recording, and life on the road. But as Karin Bergquist states, “There is still so much music left to be made.” Love & Revelation, the brand new album from Over the Rhine, is a record for right now. The songs have been rigorously road tested and burst at the seams with loss, lament, and resilient hope. The LA Times writes, “The Ohio based husband and wife duo has long been making soul-nourishing music, and the richness only deepens.”

LEIGH NASH

  
LEIGH NASH
  

Start Time: 8:00

More than two decades into her career, singer-songwriter Leigh Nash shines a light on her Texas roots with The State I’m In, a solo album that plants its feet on both sides of the border.

Nash was raised in the Texas Hill Country, where the radio stations played country music and the small towns rang with mariachi bands. A shy kid, she built up her confidence by learning how to sing. Nash began by impersonating the artists she heard on the FM dial — with particular emphasis on Tanya Tucker and Patsy Cline — before graduating to her own gigs at the age of 13, when she began singing with a country band during a series of weekly shows in New Braunfels. Within a few years, she’d also joined a band called Sixpence None the Richer, which ultimately introduced the pop world to her signature, sparkling vocal and led a successful run that included Top 5 hits like ‘Kiss Me’ and “There She Goes.”

Pelican Johnny

Pelican Johnny

Pelican Johnny’s debut full-length album, Relentless Heart, is a thorough synopsis of his diverse influences and musical interests. From dark, sappy folk songs and taking-a-stand honky-tonking numbers to fuzzed-out guitars-a-roarin’ tracks from the straight-ahead rock’n’roll side of punk, the songs have a common link in their vocal grit and memorable hooks. Most of the album was recorded and engineered by Johnny in his humble East Austin home studio (where he also mixed and mastered it). Other than the violin, accordion and sax parts, he performed every instrument on this release making this an all encompassing DIY effort. “It was important to me to keep this a raw and honest record – and not to get carried away with fixing things, which is easy to do in this era of recording. Although it was a lesson in learning to let go, I think the true spirit of these songs was accurately captured here.” –

Violet Bell w/ A Different Thread
Aug 29 @ 7:30 pm
Violet Bell

Violet Bell

Violet Bell cites a wide range of influences. From Debussy to Neil Young, D’Angelo to Lou Reed, they reflect folk, soul, bluegrass, blues, and classical. Their songs are otherworldly yet made from the stuff of everyday life, exploring questions of intergenerational change, our relationship to Earth, and the human emotional experience.

The live show is at the center of Violet Bell’s sound. They’ve played over 100 shows in 2017, earning fans from FL to VT with long stretches on the road. On stage, the energy between Ross and Ruiz-Lopez is fiery, intimate and intuitive. Their sound is true to the mutating nature of music as life on the road continually brings fresh inspiration into the mix.

Violet Bell keeps live performance at the core of their debut release Dream the Wheel. Ross sings and plays guitar, as Ruiz-Lopez adds violin, viola, cello, keys, guitar and vocal harmonies. The result is alchemical; emotionally evocative music that “sounds like a beautiful dream turned sudden nightmare.”(IW)

The album’s title track, “Dream the Wheel,” speaks to a fearlessly inclusive view of life’s cyclical polarities. “Sing, sing, everything/ Comes and goes and comes again/ Let it out and let it in/ Let it be your medicine,” “No such thing/ as too far/ or too deep/ or too dark.” In the modern era of rising seas and informational flooding, these lyrics are yours to interpret.

The album cover, a medicine wheel that Ruiz-Lopez and Ross crafted from local NC flora, speaks to the origins of the music. Violet Bell is rooted firmly in the natural world and the community from which they’ve grown. The September 15 release show for Dream the Wheel featured three members of the Durham Kidznotes All-Star string ensemble, whom Ruiz-Lopez has helped to teach since 2011. For Violet Bell, teaching and community connection are fundamental goals.

Prior to forming Violet Bell, Ruiz-Lopez honed his chops on the road with Jonathan Byrd and Crystal Bright, and composed original pieces for the Durham Symphony Orchestra. Ross is a two-time Kerrville New Folk finalist and winner of Floydfest’s On the Rise, a Carolina Music Award, and an Emerging Artist Grant from the Durham Arts Council.

As Violet Bell, Ross and Ruiz-Lopez become a dynamic musical force that’s greater than either one of them alone. Violet Bell is currently touring in support of their debut Dream the Wheel and recording their second album for release in 2018.

 
A Different Thread

A Different Thread

British/American duo, A Different Thread deliver an intoxicating amalgamation of Beatlesque folk rock meets Gillian Welch dark country.

From the rolling hills of Staffordshire to the Appalachian Mountains, A Different Thread’s original songs are inspired by the music that has crisscrossed the Atlantic Ocean over the generations in true folk fashion. Robert Jackson (from Lichfield, England) and Alicia Best (from Durham North Carolina, USA) first met two years ago while busking in Galway, Ireland. They didn’t even know each others names, all they knew was that their voices fit together like missing pieces of the same puzzle. Their chance meeting sparked a musical journey across the UK, Europe, the US, and even to Guatemala and back; touring and living on the road while cultivating their own unique blend of country, blues and folk (or as they call it: British-Americana.)

Their debut album ‘On A Whim’ (release date September 13th 2018, Cat’s Cradle Carrboro NC) was recorded last May at Arbor Ridge Studios in Chapel Hill with producer Jeff Crawford (Mandolin Orange, Mipso, Josh Moore,) featuring local NC talent including Omar Ruiz-Lopez from Violet Bell and Rusty Smith who plays frequently with Four Tops and The Temptations, among others! Back in the states for their ‘On A Whim Tour’ they are gigging up and down the East Coast, (other NC shows include Isis Music Hall on the 3rd of October, The Kraken in Chapel Hill at Jonathan Byrd’s Shake Sugaree Americana Residency on the 10th of October, and the Haw River Ballroom on the 13th of October for ‘Oktoberfest’.)

Ben DeLaurentis

Ben DeLaurentis

If not for hard luck Ben might not have any luck at all. His songs reflect this hard-earned wisdom, which is somehow both soothing and unsettling. His songs provoke thoughts and evoke emotions and at times you don’t know whether to laugh, to cry, or both. But they always make you feel something and have a real staying power in your heart, mind, and soul. From sadness to hilarity and from the heights of joy to the depths of depression, his lyrics are a quiet tidal wave of emotional release that are as heartfelt as those of any songwriter.

BECCA MANCARI with Frances Cone
Sep 11 @ 9:00 pm

Becca Mancari

Becca Mancari is a traveler. She’s lived everywhere — Staten Island, Florida, Zimbabwe, Virginia, India, Pennsylvania — and she’s collected plenty of tales along the way, spinning the sounds and stories of the modern world into songs that mix the organic stomp of American roots music with the approach and attitude of raw rock & roll. 

This is personal music, performed by a storyteller who’s lived and loved. Born in Staten Island to an Italian-Irish preacher and a Puerto Rican mother, Becca spent her childhood moving around the East Coast. It’s no surprise, then, that she found herself drawn to a group of train hoppers in central Virginia, where she relocated as a teenager to attend college. Surrounded by fellow travelers, Becca began to make music — not the kind of music she made during her earlier years, when she sang in her father’s church — but music for front porches, for bonfires, for slow dances and road trips, and train rides and new romances. The sound was inspired by everything from Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited to Neil Young’sHarvest Moon, not to mention the Appalachian folk music that her Virginia friends played. It was bold and broad, and it sounded like Becca Mancari. 

After college, Becca continued her travels, eventually winding up in the musical hotbed of Nashville, Tennessee. There, she continues writing songs that blur the lines between genres, sharing shows with artists like Hurray For The Riff Raff and Natalie Prass along the way. She jumps from the acoustic desert-rock of ‘Golden’ to the ramshackle root sounds of ‘Summertime Mama,’ showing off the full range of her music. Produced by Adam Landry and Justin Collins (Deer Tick, Middle Brother, Diamond Rugs, Lilly Hiatt) and recorded with members of her touring band, the music is a snapshot from a musician who’s still on the move, constantly writing songs about the people she’s met and the impression they leave.The recordings aren’t perfect, and Becca likes that. Because life isn’t perfect. 

‘Things that are perfect tend to sound flatlined,’ she explains. ‘There’s no ‘human’ there. I like to hear the person when I listen to songs. And I hope people can hear me.”

 

Frances Cone

Frances Cone is a Nashville based soulful indie band. For someone with deep familial roots in opera and classical music, founder Christina Cone seems preternaturally capable of writing songs focused on capturing the insane, unthinking fireworks of the human heart. Anxiety. Heartbreak. Transcendent love. The secrets of a diary so sacred and precious it only exists internally, every word an eyes-shut-tight whisper. To create music like that, such as on their forthcoming album ‘Late Riser’, takes actual, emotional bravery. It takes a level of empathy and love that stays locked and unavailable in most people. Luckily, Christina and her multi-instrumentalist musical and life partner Andrew Doherty found each other in Brooklyn NY a few years ago and all the locks failed. They started creating what would become ‘Late Riser’. Between them there was just enough courage to jump.

They landed in Nashville, TN and immediately found a home in the city’s thriving alternative scene. There were challenges and successes and but all along the songs kept coming. Music lovers at Noisey, Billboard, and Stereogum began to take notice. NPR invited the band to perform at their Tiny Desk concert series and they garnered more than 12 million streams on Spotify. The record is a testament to what modern pop music is capable of when imbued with honesty and emotion so palpable you can taste it in your mouth. It is pure feeling: watching a fireworks display through happy tears.

The Vegabonds

 

The Vegabonds

The Alabama-born, Tennessee-bred alt-southern rock band – The Vegabonds – kick off 2019 with the release of their fifth album (and first for Blue Élan Records) entitled “V.” The band will support “V” with a full year of non-stop touring throughout North America and Europe.

Produced by Tom Tapley (Blackberry Smoke, Sugarland, Mastodon), “V” audibly illustrates the band’s unconventional yet contagious brand of Southern rock and highlights the best of The Vegabonds’ unique musicianship, vocals, lyrics and sound.

‘V’ crosses boundaries of multiple music genres. These vibrant songs travel from sad to soulful; gritty to glorious. It’s a timeless American album in the sense it deals with eerie matters working people endure and captures their salvation in a song. Songs like “Partyin’ with Strangers”, the new single “I Ain’t Having It” and “When The Smoke Clears Up” proves the group’s ability to move people with a story, beat and melody. 

Vocalist Daniel Allen recently revealed, “I hope fans hear stories in the album. We are in a very unique time in history, and this album touches on the struggle of every day folks doing their best to navigate love, work, beliefs and the ever-changing politics that flood our lives daily.”
The Vegabonds got their start in Alabama in 2009 by playing the college circuit across the Southeastern United States. Their popularity quickly burgeoned to the point where they found their fans singing along word-for-word to their first hits like “Georgia Fire” and “Shaky Hands.” Through pure word of mouth, the group’s fan base rapidly grew, and the guys learned they had something distinctive with their eclectic mix of Southern Rock, Country, and earnest songwriting. Their DIY ethic delivered three full-length albums and an EP before partnering with Blue Élan Records for their current release.

With a sound reminiscent of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers mixed with the grit and twang of the Allman Brothers Band, The Vegabonds deliver a sensational performance, with powerhouse guitar riffs and impactful songwriting, night after night. Their hard work and unbridled talents have not gone unnoticed; the group has opened for such notable acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd and the late Gregg Allman and delivered rousing performances at festivals like Peach Festival, Sweetwater 420, Magnolia Fest, Sunfest and Taste of Randolph. 

In addition to countless dates throughout the Southeast, the band has toured Europe three times, played multiple dates in Canada and have visited every corner of the US.

A group of five musicians with myriad influences between them, The Vegabonds are fronted by lead vocalist and songwriter Daniel Allen, with Richard Forehand (lead guitar/vocals), Paul Bruens (bass), Beau Cooper (keys/vocals), and Bryan Harris (drums) rounding out the quintet.
