John Doe

Drive By Truckers

Bud Light / Fox 102.3 Stage

Boasting a mix of Southern pride, erudite lyrics, and a muscled three-guitar attack, Drive-By Truckers became one of the most well-respected alternative country-rock acts of the 2000s. Led by frontman Patterson Hood and featuring a rotating cast of Georgia and Alabama natives, the band celebrated the South while refusing to paint over its spotty past. History, folklore, politics, and character studies all shared equal space in the Truckers catalog.

Old Dominion

Miller Lite / WCOS 97.5 Stage

Blending old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets, Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music. Now it’s nothing less than the country rock outfit’s defining moment. They recently made their national television debuts on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the Today Show. In April, Old Dominion will rejoin Kenny Chesney for the second year in a row on his 2016 tour.

The Columbia, SC, band Isabelle’s Gift plays a furious blend of punk, metal, and Southern rock. The group came together in the early ’90s, and throughout that decade existed primarily as a regional phenomenon, releasing independent CDs and playing local venues. However, the band eventually gained opening slots for several national acts, the most significant of which was the Bloodhound Gang, with whom they toured extensively. In fact, Isabelle’s Gift would release 2001′s Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms on Bloodhound frontman Jimmy Pop’s label, Jimmy Franks Recording Company. Isabelle’s Gift has gained notoriety for their brazen live shows, which have featured strippers, barbed wire, and blood (among other such ephemera), and their blistering musical attack. The band’s moniker is a sly reference to venereal disease.

ColorBlind brings diversity to the S.C. music scene with a unique mesh of folk and hip-hop, a.k.a. folk-hop. The band is a collaboration between FatRat Da Czar from Columbia, S.C. and Justin Smith from Lexington, S.C. Prior to partnering as ColorBlind, both artists made names for themselves both locally and regionally as solo artists. FatRat Da Czar is a successful artist and entrepreneur in the South Carolina hip-hop music scene, and Justin Smith is a well known folk-rock musician and songwriter.

Friends for a decade, the two artists’ worlds collided in 2013 when they started their musical mission: to highlight similarities between two people from completely different backgrounds. The whole album started off as the duo creating music and having a good time in the studio, and flourished from there. ColorBlind represents the fusion of different worlds. Smith explains, “everyone could be ColorBlind, it would open up endless opportunities for all of us to create, work and live in a world without boundaries.”

Brave Baby is Keon Masters, Wolfgang Zimmerman, Christian Chidester, Jordan Hicks and Steven Walker. The band spent 2012 writing and self-producing their debut album Forty Bells, released on Charleston indie label Hearts and Plugs. Production was lead by producer and drummer Wolfgang Zimmerman in the bands’ storage unit turned intimate practice/studio space in Charleston, SC.

South Carolina rock ‘n’ roll shot with southern soul accents. Formed in fall of 2011, Atlas Road Crew is rapidly building one of the most loyal fan bases on the East Coast, packing venues to capacity from South Carolina to New York City, and expanding quickly to major US cities in between.

Boasting a mix of Southern pride, erudite lyrics, and a muscled three-guitar attack, Drive-By Truckers became one of the most well-respected alternative country-rock acts of the 2000s. Led by frontman Patterson Hood and featuring a rotating cast of Georgia and Alabama natives, the band celebrated the South while refusing to paint over its spotty past. History, folklore, politics, and character studies all shared equal space in the Truckers catalog.

If interested in participating in Battle of the Bands, please submit a band bio, contact information, three or more songs (including a Youtube video), and a picture to BattleForStPats@yahoo.com by February 19th.

There is no hiding that each member of The High Divers hails from South Carolina. A subtle twang dots the roots rock n’ roll landscape from which the band pulls its sound and feel. “Riverlust”, the group’s debut album, is full of southern tinged imagery that places you in the deep woods of South Carolina. It becomes clear after just a few verses that The High Divers, though mining a vein uniquely their own, have a hard time getting the sounds from Laurel Canyon, Muscle Shoals, and The Basement Tapes out of their head.

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

In early 2013 Osborne began performing solo in South Carolina & Cuba under the name of SUSTO. By August of that year SUSTO was performing as a full band. In addition to Osborne covering rhythm guitar, keyboards, & lead vocals _ this line-up included Taylor McCleskey on drums, Eric Mixon on bass and Johnny Delaware on lead guitar & background vocals.

Shovels & Rope are an American folk duo from Charleston, SC composed of husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst. Combining threads from their individual solo careers, Shovels & Rope blends traditional folk, rock and roll, country rock, and punk rock.

Blending old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets, Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music. Nominated for two Academy of Country Music awards for Vocal Group of the Year and New Vocal Group or Duo of the Year, they recently celebrated their debut single “Break Up With” reaching the top of the charts for two weeks. Old Dominion released their first full-length album Meat and Candy, which Entertainment Weekly called a “deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut.” The band is currently headlining the Meat and Candy Tour and watching their second single, “Snapback” race up the charts.

Consisting of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers, the band has spent seven years honing their craft, each making a name for themselves in Nashville by penning songs for the likes of Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney and more. Now it’s nothing less than the country rock outfit’s defining moment. They recently made their national television debuts on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the Today Show. In April, Old Dominion will rejoin Kenny Chesney for the second year in a row on his 2016 tour.

The Harsh Truth hails from the Capital City of South Carolina. After forming in Fall 2014 by Talon Vick (Keys) and Nate Walker (Vox/Rhythm), they then added Colin O’Keefe (Bass) Joe Lansburg (Lead Guitar) and Andrew Lasseter (Drums) to the mix. Since then, they have taken the local scene by storm…performing to packed crowds at Jake’s, Carolina Ale House, Conundrum and the New Brookland Tavern just to name a few. The band’s sound is reminiscent of the late 60’s and early 70’s and the band takes inspiration from musicians such as Tame Impala, Buddy Miles and Jimmy Hendrix. A show by The Harsh Truth consists of completely original material with a few covers thrown in. Since their inception, their mission has stayed the same: Make music that moves people. They plan to release their first EP in early Spring.

A band, some riffs, a brother, a sister, and the guy who drives them around, and chriffs.

Whether they’re just strutting their stuff or referencing a sexual position, the Front Bottoms have delivered a powerful new album with Back On Top. Their first for Fueled By Ramen is both full of departures and a continuation of the work they’ve been building on for years. Brian Sella (vocals, guitar) and Mat Uychich (drums) have put together a vibrant array of killer new songs with their band mates Tom “Two Slaps” Warren (bass) and Ciaran “C-Dog” O’Donnell (guitar, horns, keyboards). The growth and confidence shows in the work of this unit of four. While there is plenty that is familiar from Mat’s powerhouse drumming to Brian’s acoustic guitar and a healthy dose of horns, there is also plenty that is new, including bigger rock sounds (“Motorcycle,” “West Virginia,” “The Plan (Fuck Jobs)”) and surprisingly melodic vocal parts. (“Cough It Out,” “HELP”). There’s even a guest turn from Jersey rapper GDP who takes their darker side to even darker places in the “Historic Cemetery.” Songs flow seamlessly into each other and the album just gets stronger as it moves along.

In April 2015, Columbia, South Carolina’s The Movement released their new single “Rescue” on Rootfire Records. The reggae-rock group will be recording a new full-length album this summer. Formed in 2004 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans, Joshua Swain, Jordan Miller, and John Ruff, aka DJ Riggles, launched The Movement with their “alternative reggae” debut album, On Your Feet. In 2008, the group met Chris DiBeneditto, a Philadelphia-based producer who had worked with like-minded acts such as Slightly Stoopid and G. Love & Special Sauce. Relocating to Philadelphia, they recorded Set Sail at DiBeneditto’s Philadelphonic Studios. The album has sold over 10,000 copies to date. The Movement expanded with the addition of Jason “Smiles” Schmidt on bass and Gary Jackson on drums. In 2012, Miller left the group, and the trio, now fronted by Swain, released their fourth album Side By Side, debuting at #2 on the Billboard Reggae Chart. In 2014 The Movement released Beneath The Palms, a surprise acoustic album as a free gift to their fans.

Trap / Hip-hop / Dub

LUCiD is a production/DJ duo based out of Columbia, South Carolina. Made up of “TRAKTION” and “Pipes”, LUCiD has been taking the Southeast music scene by storm. Starting from a young age, electronic music has been a staple in both of their lives, inspiring them to learn the arts of production and DJ’ing without any formal training.

Killtrak is a DJ/Producer from Wilmington, DE and currently resides in Charlotte, NC, but spent most of his life living all over the USA, Central America and the Caribbean. Living all over has given Killtrak a wide interest in music from acoustic to hardcore to hip hop/rap and even dancehall. His musical tastes have developed into a passion for EDM, especially bass music. With high energy sets, Killtrak always tries to provide the best music for an amazing environment.

Bois Obscur(bwɑ ɔpskyʀ) hails from Columbia, SC and adds a unique twist to his sets, blending late 90s and early 2000s HipHop/R&B with new club ready beats, as well as new electronic club music. No stranger to the big stage, he has opened for the likes of Skrillex and Charlotte, NC duo Styles&Complete. “I like to dj familiar tunes that the crowd will know, mixed with a beat that they’ve never heard. It’s really neat to see people in the crowd reacting to a song that they know and can sing to, but not sound like they remember. It creates a magical experience on the dance floor,” he says. Unlike typical “house djs” Bois enjoys meandering in and out of tracks quickly to keep the set “alive”, as he puts it. Recently he has taken a break from the busy dj schedule for 6 months to focus on production of his own unique tracks. “I love the feeling of playing live, but I want it to be more than just me spinning other people’s music. I want to create and share what I make with other people. Hopefully they feel the same connection with my music that I feel myself.” Be sure to check him out locally if you can, usually spinning at Tin Roof Columbia and Charlotte. He is one of the only djs that can make you jump and dance your ass off at the front of the stage to wanting to slow grind with someone in the darkest corner of the club.
