Pinkerton Raid’s Crowdfunding Kick-Off!

Pinkerton Raid The Pinkerton Raid is a dynamic indie pop act with brother-sister harmonies and textured instrumental arrangements. They’ve played festivals and music series across the South, Midwest and the Northeast and have shared the stage with David Wimbish & The Collection, Lowland Hum, Noah Gunderson, Denison Witmer and The Soil & The Sun. Their latest album, A Beautiful World, conjures comparisons as disparate as Ingrid Michaelson and The National. “The vocal harmonies and instrumental performances remind me of some later Beatles tracks,” says Resound Magazine. “”Tender folk-rock that recalls Lambchop,”” says Indyweek. The Pinkerton Raid is currently crowdfunding for a sequel follow-up to A Beautiful World, tentatively titled Tolerance Ends, Love Begins. Website Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Channel Kamara Thomas Kamara Thomas writes astro-religious songspells and hypnotic musical tales culled from ancient American songlines and dreamtimes. Her songwriting is influenced by a wide swath of classic country and rock, with echoes of Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty, spirituals, hymns, mountain-songs and Native American shamanism. She performs with her band– Steve Anderson (drums), Sarah Dawson (backup vocals), Nathan Golub (bass) and Gordon Hartin (pedal steel)– out of Durham, North Carolina. In her musical theatre works Kamara seeks to examine the mythologies that underlie current belief systems and then re-discover rituals that affirm life and embed symbols of healing and empowerment . In 2014-15 Kamara is a featured artist for Lincoln Center Education’s repertory season, and will present songs from Tularosa, a theatre work in development that explores the American zeitgeist set against the mythology of the Wild West. In Spring 2016 she will embark on an artist residency at SpectreArts in Durham, NC where she will present a production of Bulgaria, a musical fairy tale about feminine creative experience based on the myths of Persephone and Orpheus/Eurydice in the underworld.

Crank It Loud presents – Great Peacock

Crank it Loud presents Great Peacock You can call Great Peacock a folk band… but don’t expect them to make music for campfires or square dances. Raised in the Deep South and headquartered in Nashville, they’re a group of red-blooded country boys who aren’t afraid of the big city. Case in point: Making Ghosts — the duo’s harmony-heavy, guitar-driven debut album — whose 11 songs find the middle ground between rootsy, down-home Americana and super-sized arena pop/rock. “To us, it’s just pop music with organic acoustic instruments,” says Andrew Nelson, who shares lead vocals and guitar duties with co-founder Blount Floyd. “The album has some fiddle, some pedal steel and a whole lot of acoustic guitar, which sounds like the traditional setup for a country band. But this isn’t a country record. It’s not really a folk record, either. It’s a pop/record… with folk tendencies.” Nelson and Floyd first crossed paths in their early 20s, bonding instantly over a shared love of cheap beer and good Southern music. After logging several years together in a loud, Tennessee-based rock band, they split off to form their own project, swapping out the amplified swagger of their previous group for a straightforward sound anchored by acoustic guitars, anthemic melodies and two intertwined voices. Like an old-school harmony duo retuned for a new generation, they started off with a handful of classic influences — the country croon of George Jones, the working class rock & roll of Bruce Springsteen, the heartland hum of Tom Petty — and expanded their sound from there, turning Great Peacock into the sort of band that’s simultaneously rooted in tradition and headed toward new territory. The music on Making Ghosts reflects Great Peacock’s ambition. Songs like “Tennessee” are swooning, sweeping tributes to the band’s homeland, while “Take Me To The Mountain” pushes the band toward anthemic territory, fueled by super-sized drums and a radio-ready melody. On “Arms,” the guys jump between haunting verses and big, Technicolor choruses, capping everything off with a screeching...

Debonzo Brothers

Debonzo Brothers While attending college in the early 00’s at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC and several years after, brothers Jeff and Keef Debonzo crossed the state of North Carolina playing countless live shows as members of Buzzround, a rootsy, 90’s influenced pop band born out of friendships dating to high school. Bass and lead guitar duties were shared, with Jeff mostly on bass, and Keef sticking to lead guitar.  Often these shows would be opening gigs for the quirky and lively Chapel Hill band, Big Pretty and the Red Rockets, of which cellist Joe Kwon would go on to join the Avett Brothers. Buzzround then crossed paths more frequently with Raleigh’s American Aquarium, teaming up for a number of performances from the mountains of their home state to the low country of neighboring South Carolina. The brothers departed Buzzround not long after releasing a self-titled LP in 2008 to slow down and find new direction.  Sitting on little original material at the time, friend Ryan Johnson (American Aquarium) suggested to Mississippi’s Come On Go With Us that Jeff and Keef open the show on the band’s next stop through Raleigh. With just weeks to write a sufficient set, the brothers holed up at home, writing many songs that Debonzo Brothers would go on to record. It was a stripped down performance at Slim’s Downtown Distillery of acoustic guitars and upright bass by Bill Corbin (American Aquarium). Following this small success, a second show was booked at Raleigh’s “The Hive”, the raucous on the weekend, dignified on the weeknights bar next to Slim’s. With Bill on tour, Grant Emerson (bass) and Chris Hibbard (drums) joined, solidifying the band, Debonzo Brothers. From here the band quickly made plans to record their first EP entitled Places, released in 2010. The EP was produced and engineered by Raleigh’s rising recording talent, Mark McKee.  Keef, Jeff, Grant, and Chris recorded over several weeks in the winter of 2009/2010, capturing refined renditions of their earliest material.
