A talented young songwriter, Dave Myers and his band Bigg Break have been touring the southeast United States heavily in 2012. With mixtures of rock, reggae, and folk, they have been earning fans at every show. Don't let his mellow facade fool you, this kid rocks and is sure to gain more followers in 2013.
Arden has been taking the east coast by storm, wowing crowds with her
very own, unique brand of folk rock. She normally performs with electric
guitar, but we got her here for a session with her acoustic. Check out
where she will turn up next:
Flesh and Stone
Kutcher and April Perkins are Charlotte, North Carolina's acoustic duo
Flesh and Stone. They write and perform original music because, as they
say, "if we didn't we couldn't stand it." Danny's lyrics flow from his
mouth as April's cello provides a fluid backdrop rippling to fill the
sonic space. It was a lot of fun having these two in the studio. A few
minutes with these guys and you know its all about the music and the fun.
Jenkins is a talented singer/songwriter and she also acts. Born in Dallas,
TX, her family moved to North Carolina when she was 9. She began performing
in theater at the age of 7, so when she began writing songs, performing
them for folks was second nature to her. She has acted in several movies
including the 2012 release Deadline. Currently, Lauren is residing in
New York City where she is participating in a 2 year program for acting
at the William Esper Studio. Her self titled debut EP is due out November
Channing & Quinn
This duo of North Carolina natives have made the big move to Nashville with their quirky and original style of fun music. Channing and Quinn are versatile as well. Pulling out ukulele, guitar, glockenspiel, accordion, percussion, and banjo to back up Channing's vocals. It was truly a great time having them in the studio for the Session.
in today's day and age will you find an artist like Neil Cribbs. One with
as much talent that is followed up with a work ethic that exercises his
sheer determination and desire. Based in Atlanta, GA, Neil travels the
country sharing his talents with a little bit of groove. His songs have
rhythms that will get you moving and lyrics that are clever and true.
It was a real pleasure sharing an afternoon with Neil and his songs. Enjoy!

Adam Middleton of The Spiveys
stopped in for a session at String Fellows to share some of the songs
he has written for his band, The Spiveys. Here Adam shows off his pop
sensibilities with greatest of ease and, as you will see, brevity is
his strong suit. Moving to Charlotte, NC from midwest, Adam hit hard
times in the Queen City and used the experience as fodder for songs
and motivation to form The Stella's. This band would take him all over
the region and to southwest asia, playing to the troops. Formed as a
side project, The Spiveys are a combination of The Stellas and You Tonight.
After playing together awhile, it was felt that The Spiveys should be
a full time gig.
journeyman in his own right, Tommy Brunett tangles rock and roll and
Greg Payne of The Piedmont Boys
Starting out as a two piece bar band in Greenville, South Carolina, Greg Payne and Kenny Winslow flourished in the local music venues. But as their popularity grew, so did their band. Now a five piece national touring act, The Piedmont Boys’ style invokes the spirit of legendary Country, with straight forward, honest to life lyrics. Every phrase has the strength to conjure familiar images to the listener’s mind. Just like the outlaw country acts of days gone by, Greg sings about real life with a tone that is reverent for life’s miseries and sincere in praise of it’s good times.
On the road, Greg is joined by, Brian Kennedy on drums, Matt Lee Parks on Fiddle, Chief Spires on bass, and lead guitarist Adam Whitehead.
