Judah & the Lion

Bud Light / Fox 102.3 Stage

Years before forming one of Nashville's most genre-bending bands, the members of Judah & the Lion grew up in separate corners of the U.S., listening to every type of music that came their way. They loved it all: the twang of folk, the beat of hip-hop, the drive of rock & roll, the punch of pop. With their second full-length album Folk Hop N Roll, the guys shine a light on the place where their influences overlap. It's a wide-ranging sound, with fuzz bass, hip-hop percussion, distorted banjo riffs, and super-sized melodies all stirred into the same mixing pot.

Since releasing the buzzy “Fix,” Lane racked up shout-outs from celebrities such as Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Lucy Hale, Dustin Lynch, Cole Swindell, and more. He landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Twitter Real-Time Emerging Artist chart of the release, making the irresistible song one of the most shared tracks on Twitter in the U.S. from an up-and coming artist. Media have applauded his bold, fresh sound. The talented newcomer started his career selling out club shows in his hometown of Kernersville, NC and previously toured with heavy-hitters Florida Georgia Line, Nelly, Jerrod Niemann, Lee Brice and more.

Bud Light / Fox 102.3 Stage

Rainbow Kitten Surprise and all five of its members hail from the mountains of Boone, NC. With chilling harmonies, dynamic instrumentation, and introspective lyrics, their genre-defying sound takes influence from artists like Modest Mouse and Kings of Leon as much as Frank Ocean and Schoolboy Q. Their engaging and distinct live performances have led to stand out sets at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Firefly, Shaky Knees, Hangout, Sasquatch, and Austin City Limits among others.

Green's Beverage / Island Coastal Lager Stage

Specializing in a classic-sounding Southern rock/Americana style that emphasizes songs and danceable kinetics over empty hipness and trendy pop gimmicks, J. Roddy Walston and the Business' live shows have garnered them a large following wherever they play. They released a third full-length studio album, Essential Tremors, in the fall of 2013. In support of the album, the band headlined its "Holler and Moan" tour and appeared at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. In 2017, they returned with the full-length Destroyers of the Soft Life, featuring the single "The Wanting."

Reigning from Columbia, South Carolina, Seventy Six and Sunny has showed no sign of slowing down after forming in the spring of 2012 by University of South Carolina graudates, A.J. Lang and David Kesling. Fresh off of two shows at Music Farm Columbia this past year in direct support of Atlas Road Crew and Stoplight Observations along with another 120+ shows across the Carolinas, the band is heading to Raleigh, NC this coming spring to record a brand new EP. Deemed “Columbia’s college-rock favorite” by FreeTimes, the band’s circuit continues to expand, bringing its alt-rock sounds to Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia, and North Carolina in the coming months. Often compared to the likes of Sister Hazel, Matchbox Twenty and Hootie & the Blowfish, the band has built a large presence and following in Columbia for those who like nothing short of loud rock n’ roll.

Jonny P is a soul visionary. In just a few years the Bronx-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter has served up some truly delicious tunes rooted in the sounds of the past but anchored firmly and irrevocably in the present, defined by disarmingly direct arrangements, a superlatively smooth vocal style, and an undying belief in the power of soul. In addition to wrapping his first role in the upcoming film by Oscar winning director, Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker," "Zero Dark Thirty") and screenwriter Mark Boal, he will release his second EP, Good To You, on April 21, 2017. The EP was produced by his guitarist Goffrey Moore, working in tandem with Jonny P, and was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Frank Ocean, Jamie XX, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson) and features James Gadson (Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Herbie Hancock, Beck, BB King, Jamie Lidell) on drums. Jonny P has crafted a set of songs that showcase his superlatively silky vocals, his declarative melodies, and his less- is-much-more arrangements.

Moose Kick is a five piece southern rock / funk band out of South Carolina. The band began during the winter of 2013 and since they spend their days touring, writing & practicing to effectively sharie their music with the world. Since releasing their album 'Blue Room Revival' in October of 2014 with producer Trevor Maron, the band has taken their talent to the road touring the eastern half of the country routinely.

Rainbow Kitten Surprise and all five of its members hail from the mountains of Boone, North Carolina. With chilling harmonies, dynamic instrumentation, and introspective lyrics, their genre-defying sound takes influence from artists like Modest Mouse and Kings of Leon as much as Frank Ocean and Schoolboy Q. Independently, they have over 75 million streams across digital platforms, and notched over 45 sold out shows on their first U.S. headline tour. Their engaging and distinct live performances have led to stand out sets at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Firefly, Shaky Knees, Hangout, Sasquatch, and Austin City Limits among others. The band worked with Grammy award-winning producer Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Sleeper Agent) on their Elektra debut, How to: Friend, Love, Freefall, available everywhere on April 6.

Years before forming one of Nashville's most genre-bending bands, the members of Judah & the Lion grew up in separate corners of the U.S., listening to every type of music that came their way. They loved it all: the twang of folk, the beat of hip-hop, the drive of rock & roll, the punch of pop. Later, after college brought the musicians to Tennessee, it only made sense to combine those different backgrounds — and different sounds — together. With their second full-length album Folk Hop N Roll, the guys shine a light on the place where their influences overlap. It's a wide-ranging sound, with fuzz bass, hip-hop percussion, distorted banjo riffs, and super-sized melodies all stirred into the same mixing pot. "There's no boundaries," says front man Judah Akers, who shares the band's lineup with mandolin player Brian Macdonald and banjo wiz Nate Zuercher. "We wanted to make something raw, something with attitude. We all grew up loving these hip-hop beats, so why not make an album that has the grit of Run DMC or Beastie Boys, along with all the folk instruments that we play?"

Boo Hag rises out of the dark swamps of South Carolina, providing voodoo inspired sounds from the backwoods and Dark Corner. Specializes in kick you in the teeth rock n roll, salt and peppered with the macabre with a twist of psychedelia.

Riley Green is a country music artist from Jacksonville, AL. If Riley isn’t strumming a six-string and singing, chances are you’ll find him deep sea fishing in Orange Beach, AL or deer hunting at his ‘Back 40 Bash’ property. Riley has achieved an incredible amount of success as an independent artist from selling out venues including Exit/In, Iron City, Soul Kitchen, and Georgia Theatre; to his last EP, “Outlaws Like Us”, reaching #2 on the iTunes Country chart. His fan base is not just limited to music, as his outdoor show “In the Hunt with Riley Green” has reached many new fans through airing on The Pursuit Channel. Be on the lookout for new music and a new outdoor show partnership in 2018.

Currently out supporting Florida Georgia Line’s explosive Dig Your Roots Tour, followed by select dates on The Smooth Tour 2017, he is climbing Country radio with his Top 30 “The Way I Talk” on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and has racked up over 7 million Spotify streams (and counting). Offering up the first real taste of his Big Loud Records EP – also titled The Way I Talk – Wallen’s drawling, fun-loving anthem penned by hit-makers Ben Hayslip, Chase McGill and Jessi Alexander, plays off the young star’s dynamic vocal delivery and features a sound straight out of the modern South, combining elements of both country and rock. Wallen started woodshedding as a songwriter, working with the likes of Wiseman, Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, the Warren Brothers, Tommy Cecil, and Matt Dragstrem. Meanwhile, Big Loud Records proved that it was big-league – while Wallen worked on his own music, the label’s first-ever single, Chris Lane’s “Fix,” shot to #1, an unheard-of start for a brand-new label. Wallen hopes to build a similar story. His end goal is to continue to be onstage, making that emotional connection with his distinctive sound, as well as releasing his anticipated forthcoming debut album of Big Loud Records.

Since releasing the buzzy “Fix,” Lane racked up shout-outs from celebrities such as Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Lucy Hale, Dustin Lynch, Cole Swindell, and more. He landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Twitter Real-Time Emerging Artist chart of the release, making the irresistible song one of the most shared tracks on Twitter in the U.S. from an up-and coming artist. “Fix” shaped Lane’s sonic direction and is the title track of his newly released EP produced by the award-winning Joey Moi. Media have applauded his bold, fresh sound and standout falsetto: with each raves including Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know,” Young Hollywood's “Artist to Watch” list, Hello! Magazine’s “People You Will Be Talking About” and Glamour's “Music We Love.” Lane was also chosen for the select CMT 2016 Listen Up campaign. The talented newcomer started his career selling out club shows in his hometown of Kernersville, NC and previously toured with heavy-hitters Florida Georgia Line, Nelly, Jerrod Niemann, Lee Brice and more.

From Charleston, SC, this hardworking local band has logged serious miles honing their sound: a mix of potent songwriting and fiery country chops, doused with a few shots of whiskey. With the help of a seasoned crew of local talent, singer Slaton Glover delivers a musical message of hellfire and heartbreak, leaving it all on the stage at every performance.

LUTHI routinely brings the party. And with nine members, it’s a big one. “Boogie Circus” is the most colorful description of their sound so far. “We like the term Cumberland Funk too,” says front man Christian Luthi, with an easy chuckle. What’s very evident in talking with (what they call) “The LUTHI Crew” is the shared passion for helping others let loose. And let loose they will.

Traveling in a pack that can be likened to big bands of days gone by, the members of LUTHI have honed in on the one thing that all nine of them can agree on; “keeping it weird”. Drawing from influences that include soul and R&B acts from the 1960’s, psychedelic funk and groove from the 70’s, and New Wave rock and roll from the 80’s, LUTHI then turns the ingredients into their own stew of modern dance music, with lyrics and melodies that only continue to open themselves up to listeners with each new spin.

Specializing in a classic-sounding Southern rock/Americana style that emphasizes songs and danceable kinetics over empty hipness and trendy pop gimmicks, J. Roddy Walston and the Business formed in Cleveland, Tennessee in 2002, moving north to Baltimore, Maryland in 2004. After a couple of lineup changes, the band solidified as a classic rock four-piece with J. Roddy Walston handling lead vocals (as well as playing guitar and piano), Billy Gordon on guitar and additional vocals, Logan Davis on bass, and Steve Colmuson drums. J. Roddy Walston and the Business' live shows have garnered them a large following wherever they play or tour. The band released an EP, LMNEP, in 2005, following it with a self-released full-length, Hail Mega Boys, in 2007. Another short-form release, Digital EP, arrived in June of 2010, with a self-titled full-length album, J. Roddy Walston and the Business, appearing from Vagrant Records a month later. A third full-length studio album, Essential Tremors, arrived in the fall of 2013. In support of the album, the band headlined its "Holler and Moan" tour and appeared at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. In 2017, they returned with the full-length Destroyers of the Soft Life, featuring the single "The Wanting."

SUSTO released their 2014 debut album independently and toured relentlessly to get the word out. They were an immediate hit in their hometown, packing venues, getting airplay at all the bars and even making a fan of Band of Horses' Ben Bridwell. On "Hard Drugs," Osborne muses about reconnecting with an estranged friend during a personal crisis ("I'm thankful that I have some friends that are totally fine with me telling some stories about things we've all been through together") and on "Mystery Man," Delaware writes about "the feeling of appreciation for someone coming into your life, someone like yourself." On "Wasted Mind," one of the most personal songs on the album, Osborne, and Delaware reflect on the journey they've been through together. "We wrote that [song] about finally having a voice that was being heard, and about trying and failing and then finally getting some ears to listen to you," he says. "It's about the ups and downs of that, and how you get to travel, and you're just kind of in and out of people's lives, and it's hard but beautiful, and also how you start to come out of the haze of partying and start thinking about your life's value."

In many ways, "Wasted Mind" is & I'm Fine Today in miniature, as the album circles around the theme of punching through life's difficulties and learning to be comfortable with the person you've grown into. "I feel like I am better. We put the first record out, and we worked hard, and it just feels like a good place to be," he says, noting that while the first record focused on his own struggles, & I'm Fine Today is more concerned with looking at the world beyond the struggles in your head. "I've learned to appreciate the fact that I just get to be here. It's all perspective," he says. "This album is about coming to terms with yourself and feeling okay with your place in the universe."

Their latest album "My Bones Are Singing" marks a considerable growth for Those Lavender Whales. Recorded with Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi) in Berkeley, California, and at singer Aaron Graves’s home in Columbia, South Carolina, My Bones Are Singing is full of bigger sounds and a broader palette that parallels the way this band’s world expanded suddenly in a period of rough weather with huge amounts of uncertainty and love. The personal songwriting, thoughtful arrangements and delightful quirkiness that Graves established on a handful of EPs and 2012’s Tomahawk of Praise remain, but Bundick’s production gives My Bones Are Singing an airiness imbued by stacks of vintage synthesizers and crisp production. Indeed, Those Lavender Whales has grown physically as well, not into simply a fleshed-out band, but a full-fledged family. Jessica Bornick, Graves’s wife, plays drums. Multi-instrumentalists Christopher Gardner and Patrick Wall, two of Graves’s longtime friends, round out the band.

SondorBlue is an alt-rock four-piece band with three lead singers. Their tight, soaring harmonies might remind you of The Beatles or Crosby, Stills and Nash, but the SondorBlue sound is entirely contemporary. John, Connor and Andrew pass around the vocals within their emotional and carefully crafted songs and, when they sing together, a magical fourth voice is created that is uniquely SondorBlue. 

RBTS WIN forge their own brand of cerebral body music in the heart of the Appalachian mountains. Invoking the harmony and chaos of analog synthesizers and old-school samplers, the collective of sonic adepts have grown a cult following throughout the southeast, becoming a staple performance of North Carolina’s futurist-technology conference, Moogfest since 2012. 2014’s Palm Sunday [Tidal Prism Records] transmitted the group’s unique blend of lo-fi pop and physical R&B across the globe, receiving international distribution via Japan’s Rallye Label and airplay from BBC’s Radio 1 and Radio 6 Music as well as a spot on Don Lett’s Best of 2015 list.

Tuatha Dea, The Celtic,Tribal, Gypsy Rock Band from Gatlinburg TN has been called pure primal energy with a celtic, world and rock twist. The bands eclectic sound blends the tribal vibe of primitive drums with conventional and non conventional instruments to create a real evolutionary musical crossover that defies category and genre. Combining primal rhythms, melodic and ethereal ballads, screaming guitar riffs with an Appalachian/Celtic vibe this family born of a family drum circle delivers an authentic tribal and clannish feel that not only draws the audience into the music but into the moment and clan as well.

Slim Picken's is an alchemist's blend of: Fresh cut Folk-grass, rag-timey travis-picking, finished with high notes of funk and grounded with a terrestrial groove.

With a good mixture of quirky and serious, The Post-Timey String Band produce an interesting blend of folk, ragtime, and blues that hails influence from the old and the new. Kelley creates the picture with her vocals/kazoo/mouth trumpet and keeps everything in line with her guitar/ukulele/banjo while Sean colors everything in with an assortment of stringed instruments.

Right now, Tim Barry is detoxing. Not from drugs or alcohol, but from his own music. "When the record’s finally done, and the master is approved, I erase every file that’s been sent to me and I throw out all the CDs with all of the rough mixes. I get rid of everything," says Barry. And that’s exactly where he’s at, in the middle of cleanse from his own work. But on September 8, he’ll sit down with his new record, High On 95 (Chunksaah Records), one last time. And like everyone else listening to it that day, it’ll be for the first time. "I generally never listen to the record again except one time on the day it comes out," says Barry. "That’s when I actually hear the record from the perspective of the people who are into it." And what those people will hear—along with the artist himself—is a record that explores the human condition in classic Tim Barry fashion.

The musical union between Kelley and Kristen began in 2012, when the two musicians joined forces as part of the female folk trio The Prairie Willows. Their sound integrated 3-part harmonies, old time fiddle, and sorrowful songwriting. Their music quickly evolved into their now soulful twang, spirited multi-instrumental folk, Americana sound featuring an assortment of talented back-up musicians, and, of course, the two leading ladies. The uniting of these strong female vocals with guitar, fiddle and varying other instrumentation gives The Boomtown Waifs a flavor of ruckus and delight that audiences love to be a part of.

Hailing from Aiken, South Carolina, the Kenny George Band has created an indelible impression with fans throughout the Southeast and Midwest, playing 250 concerts in the last two years alone. They’ve travelled the highways and byways between North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Missouri, reconnecting with their fervent followers and picking up new fans along the way. Their explosive live performances have made them a band on the brink of a breakout, and it’s little wonder that in 2016, they were voted South Carolina Artists to Watch by the South Carolina Music Guide.
