Magnolia Justice @ Calaboose Cellars

Magnolia Justice @ Calaboose Cellars | Andrews | North Carolina | United States

Five years ago, Jarrod and Alyssa met and fell in love cruising around the mountain backroads of western North Carolina, singing along to the radio and sharing with each other the albums and songs the held most dear (they are still using that auxiliary cable/cassette tape device everyone had.) Fast forward to present and two music projects later, Jarrod and Alyssa find themselves newlywed and nestled in the heart of the Cumberland Gap, sitting on songs that were written for the sake of the song and vocal harmonies as rich as the pasture land that flow off of the sharp East Tennessee hills.

Magnolia Justice is a band firmly founded in finely crafted songwriting , telling tales of true emotion, as well as that visceral human reaction to two voices blending perfectly in natural harmony. Drawing heavily from classic influences such as Dylan, Kristofferson, Haggard, and the Rolling Stones in addition to tipping the cap to modern giants such as The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, and John Paul White of the Civil Wars, Magnolia Justice brings a sound that is neither country nor singer-songwriter, neither folk nor rock.

To put it quite simply–it is all about the songs; stories that matter and sounds that move you.

Hope Griffin Duo
May 13 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Hope Griffin Duo

Born in Anchorage, Alaska, Hope Griffin was literally born into music. Surrounded by a musical family, she began singing and performing when she was very young. Hope first got turned onto the idea of writing her own music when she received a guitar at age 17. She attended Carson-Newman University and went on to receive a Bachelors degree in classical voice. It was there that her true flair for songwriting developed. Hope’s drive to perform her original works was launched after winning a songwriters contest in college in 2007. She eventually moved to Asheville, North Carolina where she began introducing her angelic vocals and folky lyrics into the music scene.

Since her time in Asheville, Hope has entered and won several singer/songwriter contests, including 2nd place of hundreds to open for Dave Barnes. In 2012, her song “Hanging In The Balance” made radio play. She has been in newspapers such as the Herald-Journal & The Mountain Express, appeared on WNC television, and interviewed with several radio stations. Her “in your-face” style of ballad writing, as well as her reputation for playing songs that span through the decades has made her popular amongst a wide range of age groups.

Hope continues to wow audiences and stretch the musical boundaries by switching from soulful ballads to high-energy blues with ease. Her brand new EP entitled “Say What You Will” released on February 6th, 2015 to a sold out show at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall in Asheville, NC. Each song on the album offers a diverse style and hook worthy of its subject matter, but all are linked with Hope’s angelic voice, catchy beats, and poignant imagery. This is the album that fans of folk music and singer-songwriters have been waiting for since Hope first began mesmerizing her audiences, and it is a perfect exhibition of her extraordinary talent.

Hope can now be seen touring with her cellist JamieLeigh at many venues throughout the Southeast US, in states including North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, & Virginia. With the release of her new EP, she’s taking her music even further for the 2015-2016 season. If you’re in the area, do yourself a favor and come see her play. Her free spirited personality and ability to tell beautiful stories through song make her a true force to be reckoned with – and a hard excuse to miss!

Bull Moose Party
May 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Bull Moose Party

The Bull Moose Party came into existence from the fiery depths of the deepest Appalachian volcano during the early Ordovician Period. Four formless creatures bound together by fire. mud, stone and ash. All but the timeless bass wizard who was formed by what you might call “Cold Bone.” The five wondered the cosmos for millenia in shapeless form until the infamous time sorcerer Wayne Erbsen trapped the five into the form of homo sapiens to do his bidding on the planet called Earth. “The Five” as they were known up until the byzantine area, reaped musical havoc across Eastern Europe through Central Asia, down passed the Middle East. It has been said that the first six catholic crusades were begun in fear of this band. As well as the bubonic plague.

Liz is from a time and place in Georgia where women did what they were told and held back tears to hold families together. It didn’t take her long to realize that just wasn’t her. She started playing bass in a country band at the age of 13 and soon traded it for an Alvarez acoustic guitar given to her by her grandfather. Leaving behind the idea that you can’t talk about the skeletons in the closet, she started writing to expose them in the form of song.

Troy Underwood @ Calaboose Cellars
Jun 30 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Troy Underwood @ Calaboose Cellars | Andrews | North Carolina | United States

Troy Underwood is a soul man. As simple and ultimately misleading as that may be, it’s about as close as anyone will ever come to describing him. With a voice that would be the envy of any in Nashville, and a groove as bone-deep as any blue-eyed soulsters’, Underwood can paint on as broad an aural landscape as he wishes. Whether it’s channeling Tony Joe White on his sizzling “Summertime In Georgia,” romancing the ether with “Dance In The Kitchen,” or bringing down the house with “Big Bottom Girls,” Underwood defies categorization.

Underwood hails from Ringgold, Georgia, where he learned to play the drums at four, and keyboards and guitar before reaching his teens. Possessed of a preternaturally old and soulful voice and the writing chops to compliment it, he seemed tailor made for the life of a troubadour. It was obvious to anyone who knew him that music was his calling. The only one who didn’t seem to know it was Underwood himself, and it would be some time before the call of his muse became too loud for even him to ignore.

Like many fledgling singer/songwriters, Underwood’s first experience came at local open mics where it quickly became obvious that he was no ordinary talent. His songs were immediately accessible, his playing sublime, and his voice… world weary yet hopeful, a gravelly drawl that carries weight, the voice of an old, old soul. As many of those who had to follow him at those first open mic performances would surely attest, it simply wasn’t fair.

Soon Underwood was pitching songs, first as a hobby but then with an increasing sense of determination. He moved to Nashville where he was soon teamed up with such writers as Wynn Varble, Shawn Harnett, Bobby Pinson, Mark Gray, and John Sturdivant Jr. He seemed well on the way to having a successful songwriting career before family issues intervened, and he was forced to return home to his native Ringgold.

Once home, Underwood began performing locally. A move to Chattanooga brought more opportunities, and soon he was gaining a following. He released the self-produced albums “Daydream” and “Drive,” and soon women as far afield as Atlanta were singing along when he’d perform. Hailed by critics – one of whom called him the long, lost love child of Stevie Wonder and Garth Brooks – Underwood has earned a loyal coterie of fans everywhere he plays. It’s not hard to understand why: This is what he was born to do.

Megan Saunders & The Driftless
Aug 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Megan Saunders & The Driftless

The songs of Megan Saunders build a sense of story and place, with inspiration drawn from exploits, love and insomnia across the back roads of rural America. Using a combination of earnest vocals and a variety of acoustic string instruments, she creates a sound that spans playful and luminous to sultry and haunting, all the while keeping a foot in American roots music.

Megan recently relocated from Santa Cruz, CA, where she opened for several nationally-acclaimed acts with her band, The Driftless, including Dead Winter Carpenters, The Blackberry Bushes, American Nomad and Evie Ladin.

Now a new member of the Chattanooga community, she is currently performing solo and with Jason Reed (guitar) and Ashley Cofield (violin). Together they create a joyous space, a refuge that you can share. As Tom Miller (concert programmer) explains, “The plaintive original melodies of Megan Saunders and The Driftless can take you to an earthy, vintage, dreamlike setting. They will hold you there like a feast of comfort food with no bones to pick or rinds to peel or bitter tastes to distract – seamless pleasure.”

When you think of the blues – real blues – you think of the Delta, and names like Lightning Hopkins, Robert Johnson and the Reverend Gary Davis… grizzled old men with hands like a pair of ancient snakeskin boots, bent from trials only they could know. What you don’t think of, what you don’t expect, is a woman named Heidi.

That’s about to change. Heidi Holton is turning heads with her unique take on one of America’s oldest popular musical traditions. At once authentic and yet utterly new, her take on blues standards such as Baby Please Don’t Go and Statesboro Blues is nothing short of a revelation. Her tasteful originals shine just as brightly, seemingly both familiar and fresh.
