1:00 // The High Divers

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.

2:10 // SUSTO

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.

Early writing & recording for SUSTO began in late 2011.

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.

By early 2014 the debut self titled album was finalized & subsequently released by Osborne & Delaware’s label Peninsula Records on April Fool’s Day (04/01/2014).

After an extensive North American solo tour (Summer 2014) in support of SUSTO’s debut album, Osborne returned to Charleston and began to solidify a permanent live band. SUSTO’s full band line-up eventually came to be Corey Campbell (Guitar, Keys, Vocals), Johnny Delaware (Guitar, Keys, Vocals), Jordan Hicks (Bass Guitar), Marshall Hudson (Drums/Percussion) and Justin Osborne (Vocals, Guitar, Keys).

The band maintains a moderate tour schedule & a second album with the werking title “& I’m Fine Today” is now in production; no timeframe has been established regarding it’s release.

5:30 // Old Dominion

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.
