Porch 40
Porch 40
Porch 40 delivers a hip take on modern Rock & Pop with funky undertones that highlight their clever arrangements. The band formed in 2012 at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. Word of their unforgettable live performances quickly attracted regional attention and a loyal, growing following.

In 2014 Porch 40 recorded their first album “Spread It Heavy” at Reflection Sound Studios in Charlotte, North Carolina, with Mark Williams (Southern Culture On The Skids) engineering, Jamie Hoover of the legendary Spongetones producing, and the renowned Dan Millice mastering. They were the last band to record in that historic studio.

Most recently, Porch 40 wrapped up the recording of their highly anticipated sophomore album, with a release date yet to be set. This album showcases a diversely talented band always pushing their boundaries. The album is produced by Robert Mercurio from Galactic; mixed/mastered by Count aka Mikael Eldridge (Radiohead, Blink 182, The Revivalists, Portugal the Man) and was tracked at Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans, LA.

From festivals such as the famous Bele Chere in Asheville and the highly touted Sweetwater 420 Fest in Atlanta, to clubs across the southeast including The House of Blues in New Orleans, The Orange Peel in Asheville, and The Fillmore in Charlotte, the band has a committed and wildly dedicated fan base.

Porch 40 is especially known for their extraordinarily intense live shows and high level of musicianship. They have shared the stage and performed with Blues Traveler, Galactic, The Doobie Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, REO Speedwagon, Leftover Salmon, Jackie Greene, Tauk, Big Something, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, The Suffers, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and more.

One of the most original and talented bands to come out of North Carolina, Porch 40’s engaging songs and energetic shows make them favorites everywhere they perform.

Porch 40 is:

Scott Burr - Vocals/Saxophone, Andrew Duncan -Vocals/Rhythm Guitar, Carter McDevitt -Vocals/Bass, Mitchell Metz - Vocals/Violin and Brett Wilson - Drums.
Sanctum Sully
Sanctum Sully
A delicious stew of rock, bluegrass, funk, psychedelia, country, folk & blues.

For years, an Asheville bluegrass favorite (voted one of WNC’s top-3 bluegrass bands by Mountain Xpress readers from 2010-2013), Sanctum Sully has reemerged as a 6-piece electrified unit that combines their many influences to form a unique & authentic sound. From frantic bluegrass licks to spaced-out ambient rock…Sanctum Sully churns it out, straight from the heart.

Originally formed in 2008, SS has put out two albums (2012’s “Trade Winds” and 2014’s “Southern Trees”), played to many festival crowds (Merlefest, Floydfest, Mountain Song at Sea, Bele Chere, Rooster Walk, Soulshine Fest), and performed along side their own heroes from time to time (Leftover Salmon, Larry Keel, Acoustic Syndicate & more). They are a merry band of friends who’s love & respect for each other bleeds out through the music.

Their new, eponymous EP was released on May 18th, 2018.
The Company Stores
The Company Stores
The Company Stores are a modern Appalachian rock band from Charleston, WV. Their 2017 sophomore album, Little Lights, recorded at Echo Mountain Studio with Grammy winning producer Julian Dreyer, has been getting phenomenal reviews, and is being spun all over the U.S. and Canada. Described by Skope Magazine as being led by “Casey Litz’s soulful, sultry vocals, a funky horn section, and a gritty backbeat”, the band “links Appalachian folk influences with a progressive, electronic sound that isn’t afraid to break boundaries” and “explores the vastness of rock and all it has to offer.”
