TRUTH & SALVAGE CO.
The music of Truth & Salvage Co. sits comfortably between two musical genres, country and rock & roll, and is appreciated by staunch lovers of both. Their performance at the 2010 Bonnaroo Festival was highly anticipated and well-received, and they are among a short list of groups that have been asked to perform country music’s Stagecoach Festival two years in a row. Their live show is highly energetic and stacked with four-part harmonies, hot and tight. The singers effortlessly trade the role of “lead” throughout the set, keeping the show fresh and the listener dying to hear what’s next. Other notable acts they have had the privilege to support are The Levon Helm Band, The Avett Brothers, Gov’t Mule, the Steve Miller Band and Lynryd Skynryd, and can count sold-out shows at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and multiple nights at the Fillmore in San Francisco as some of their most memorable.
Truth & Salvage Co. is Adam Grace (organ), Tim Jones (singer, rhythm guitar), Scott Kinnebrew (singer, lead guitar), Bill “Smitty” Smith (singer, drums), Walker Young (singer, piano), and new recruit Dean Moore (bass). While incessant touring ensures they reside in their white Ford van, dubbed “The Champion,” as often as their newly adopted hometown of Nashville, the predominantly Southern and Midwestern musicians in Truth & Salvage are nonetheless thrilled to be headquartered in Middle America and can’t wait to venture out in support of their long-awaited sophomore album once it’s released in 2013.
Tater Family Travelling Circus was formed in 2009 in the foothills of North Carolina's Appalachian Mountains. Calling Shelby, North Carolina, their home, the band was assembledby singer/ songwriter, Luke Edwards, in an effort to continue refining and completing material he'd been working on for ten years in a previous project. With plenty of bands in Appalachian North Carolina carrying the torch of traditional roots music, the Tater Family Travelling Circus chose instead to take the influences of the area's traditional music and fuse them with the burgeoning new wave of Southern Rock to create a sound dubbed as "Hi-Test Hillbilly". TFTC consists of Luke Edwards on lead vocal and guitar, Ashley Conine on Guitar and Harmonica, Jonathan Bowling on Bass, and Corbett Richards on drums and percussion. After nearly three years of steady gigging in the Southeastern US, TFTC finally took a short break in 2012 to record their debut effort, "Curiosities". Released on the fledgling North Carolina label, Punky Dunk Records, "Curiosities" is a collection of twelve original Tater Family Travelling Circus tunes, recorded and co-produced by the amazing Chris Garges (Mitch
Easter, Don Dixon, Arthur Smith, David Childers, and others) at Old House Studio in Gastonia, North Carolina. The songs on "Curiosities" run the gamut, from stripped-down acoustic pieces offering a tip of the hat to North Carolina's Bluegrass history, all the way to full-tilt rockers! TFTC has wasted no time getting back to what they do best - playing live! Getting back on the road for the remainder of 2012 and gearing up for a busy 2013, TFTC is ready to deliver "Hi-Test Hillbilly" to the masses! Come join The Circus!
Baylor Drive is an alternative country band hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina. Spotlighting the music of lead singer and principle songwriter Brandon Thompson, the members of Baylor Drive synthesize a wide range of influences to form a unique brand of subtly intense music. When listening to the band, you may be reminded of artists ranging from Ryan Adams to Pink Floyd; from Counting Crows to the Jayhawks.
The band that would become Baylor Drive formed in the living room of lead vocalist and primary songwriter Brandon Thompson in 2009. Brandon enlisted the aid of friends Grey Banner (bass) and Kim Taylor (background vocals) to help bring his musical vision to life. After only two practices, the band took the stage for the first time. The overwhelmingly positive reaction of the crowd was all the convincing the nascent band needed: this wasn’t going to be a one-time gig. Soon after, guitarist Josh Adams was added, bringing his own flare and dynamic to the songs. After an exhaustive search, lead guitarist Curt Busse and drummer Tony Robinson were invited to join the band in 2010.
