Asheville-based band, Rooster, is made up of Erin Kinard on drums and Annie Myers on guitar and was formed by two strangers around a campfire in the summer of 2016. Annie and Erin recorded their debut album, Bloodroot, in February 2019 in Swannanoa, NC with recording engineer and producer Matt Lohan. Rooster's first release was an eponymous collection of five original songs in 2017. Since then they have performed throughout Western North Carolina, creating both new songs and arrangements of beloved Americana. Annie and Erin thrive on the impact of powerful vocal harmony that blends into lush organic sounds like honey from the hive. In any configuration, the orchestrations are clean and uncluttered, but with a raw, gritty edge. They seem right at home in a wine bar, brew pub, honky-tonk or at a backyard barbecue. Rooster's Bloodroot made it onto WNCW's top 100 albums of 2020.
New Age Americans - These Young Adolescents from the Chicago suburbs formed in middle school when best friends Tyler “T-Hodg” Hodgett and Jake “From NAA” Smith wanted to melt faces. The boys found RJ “Caveman” McGaw as the missing piece to fulfill their live experience. The band had a successful tour of the Midwest performing with various artist such as iHeartRadios rock artist of the year, lovelytheband as well as former members of Lynyrd Skynyrd/Blackfoot with their group named Skinny Molly. After the tours the band took a short hiatus to graduate from college. As the band recharged, they released a series of singles and welcomed the talent of Alexander "Mississippi King" James for guitar and songwriting. The band is currently getting ready to tour again and working on their next studio album that is set to release summer of 2022.
