  • India Ramey

    India Ramey

    Singer-Songwriter

    India Ramey is a Nashville alt-country/Americana artist. The granddaughter of a Sand Mountain, AL bluegrass and gospel musician, India was born with music in her blood. India grew up listening to everything from gospel choir, to Willie Nelson, to Pat Benatar to the Ramones. She went from singing Jesse Coulter tunes into a curling iron at age 4 to putting out 2 albums. India's journey, however was not typical. Before going full time with her music career, and to the shock of her friends and family, she gave up a successful law practice to do so and she has never looked back. Her first album, Junkyard Angel received much acclaim, including an Independent Music Award nomination for "Best Country Song." India's second album, Blood Crescent Moon, has also recently received an Independent Music Award Nomination. With its southern gothic themes, haunting lyrics, driving rhythms and powerful vocals, “Blood Crescent Moon” tells tales of love, to lose, to revenge. Having had the honor of playing some of the Southeast's legendary venues as well as various music festivals and concert series, India has developed a strong and loyal following over the past 5 years that only continues to build.

  • Zach Schmidt

    Zach Schmidt

    Singer-Songwriter

    The best songwriters can take you to a specific place and specific time – even if you’ve never been. It’s exactly what happens when you listen to Zach Schmidt’s music. The Pittsburgh native has emerged on the Nashville folk music scene with his newly released EP, Horse or Truck or Train, demonstrating undeniable talent as a fresh singer-songwriter.

    Inspired by a bike ride across the continental U.S. Horse or Truck or Train is a winding journey, rich with imagery reminiscent of seasoned greats like Guy Clark and John Prine.

     Zach’s music has a profound ability to pay homage to the longstanding tradition of folk music while breathing new-life into American sound.

    His songs are as classic as his sound – drawing you in with a timeless quality – spinning a story you could swear was your own.

  • Phoebe Hunt & the Gatherers

    Phoebe Hunt & the Gatherers

    Alternative

    An accomplished Americana instrumentalist with foundations in jazz and swing music, Phoebe makes an impressive creative leap with this record. It’s the culmination of a five year journey that has taken her from her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn, and even to India to study with seventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath.  Along the way, Phoebe found her voice and delivered her most inspired set of songs to date -- the soundtrack to her self-discovery.  

    Shanti’s Shadow marks an arrival for Phoebe Hunt, whose artistic and personal journeys have deep story lines.  
    These masterfully crafted songs are brought to life by the musicians Phoebe has gathered, each a virtuoso in their own right.  Currently, the gatherers are Roy Williams (guitar), Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Sam Reider (piano/accordion), Nick Falk (drums) and Jared Engel/Dave Speranza (upright bass).  The album, "Shanti’s Shadow" is garnished with additional guests who are dear to Phoebe’s heart: Stephanie Hunt and Jazz Mills - vocal harmonies, Alex Hargreaves and Nathaniel Smith - strings. Each of these musicians is a leader in their own right and have won awards and toured the world with some of the best musicians on the planet. 

  • Rachel Baiman

    Rachel Baiman

    Alternative

    “Rachel, a former Illinois fiddle champion with a dark sense of humor, seemed to be going on adrenaline after a cold hit her on the road and those of us lucky enough to wander into this free concert witnessed a goose-bump-instigating talent that reminded me of a young Gillian Welch or Joy Williams (Civil Wars).”

  • Violet Bell

    Violet Bell

    Blues-Rock

    “Making the best possible use of the atmospheric, captivating vocals of Lizzy Ross, Durham folk duo Violet Bell puts an eerie, vaguely avant-garde twist on traditional roots music, suggesting the lovely but slightly askew early John Cale releases. Garnished with beauty but fraught with an underlying menace, tunes like “Dream the Wheel” under score the interplay between Ross and multi-instrumentalist Omar Ruiz-Lopez.” (Indy Weekly)

    Violet Bell cites a wide range of influences. From Debussy to Neil Young, D’Angelo to Lou Reed, their unique sound blends folk, soul, bluegrass, blues, and classical. Their songs are otherworldly yet made from the stuff of everyday life, exploring questions of intergenerational change, our relationship to Earth, and the human emotional experience.

    Since their inception in March 2016, Violet Bell has played over 200 shows, earning fans from FL to VT with long stretches on the road. On stage, the energy between Ross and Ruiz-Lopez is fiery, intimate and intuitive. Their sound is true to the mutating nature of music, as life on the road continually brings fresh inspiration into the mix.

    Violet Bell keeps live performance at the core of their debut release Dream the Wheel. Ross sings and plays guitar, as Ruiz-Lopez adds violin, viola, cello, keys, guitar and vocal harmonies. The result is alchemical; emotionally evocative music that “sounds like a beautiful dream turned sudden nightmare.”(IW)

    The album’s title track, “Dream the Wheel,” speaks to a fearlessly inclusive view of life’s cyclical polarities. “Sing, sing, everything/ Comes and goes and comes again/ Let it out and let it in/ Let it be your medicine,” “No such thing/ as too far/ or too deep/ or too dark.” In the modern era of rising seas and informational flooding, these lyrics could be chilling or comforting – it’s yours to interpret.

    The album cover, a medicine wheel that Ruiz-Lopez and Ross crafted from local NC flora, speaks to the origins of the music. Violet Bell is rooted firmly in the natural world and the community from which they’ve grown. The September 15 release show for Dream the Wheel featured three members of the Durham Kidznotes All-Star string ensemble, whom Ruiz-Lopez has helped to teach since 2011. For Violet Bell, community connection is a big-picture goal. Says Ruiz-Lopez, “We’ve seen how music can transform lives and communities for the better. We want to know, how can this music plant seeds of change for our children’s generation?”

    Prior to Violet Bell, Ruiz-Lopez honed his chops on the road with Jonathan Byrd and Crystal Bright, and composed several original pieces for the Durham Symphony Orchestra. Ross has been a two-time Kerrville New Folk finalist and won Floydfest’s On the Rise contest, a Carolina Music Award, and an Emerging Artist Grant from the Durham Arts Council.

    As Violet Bell, Ross and Ruiz-Lopez become a dynamic musical force that’s greater than either one of them alone. There is a quiet power building in their music, a brave and playful spirit, willing to dance with shadow and light.

    Violet Bell is currently touring their debut Dream the Wheel and recording their second album for release in 2018.
