Decatur, GA, 30030
Doors 9:15 PM / Show 9:30 PM
Raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains of South Carolina, Sam Burchfield was brought up on Appalachian music: folk, gospel, country and southern soul. The young songwriter draws on these roots with a deep lyrical honesty and carries the tradition of folk music forward.
Burchfield’s upcoming EP, ‘Graveyard Flower’, seeks to reconnect to the Appalachian roots that raised him. In a world of cell phones and internet distractions, this body of work beckons the listener to plant their feet firmly in the soil. Reconnect to the land, reconnect to each other; ‘Graveyard Flower’ is honest music.
In the ever-changing landscape of modern pop, Nathan Angelo shines
as a refreshing alternative, embracing the classic elements of popular music
and celebrating the backbeat of American tradition. As the revival of music
in the 60’s and 70’s brought together the heritage of the Great American
songbook, the flair of jazz and heartache of the Delta blues, Angelo
integrates these forms into his own music with great ease and delight. For
the past decade, Angelo has captivated audiences across the country with
his high-spirited live show and captured the imagination of a loyal following
through prolific songwriting, independently selling over 40,000 albums along
Angelo’s latest full-length album A Matter of Time (Aug 2017)
reflects his journey through the life-altering experiences of becoming a
father and facing his daughter’s rare, life-threatening metabolic disease. His
daughter received a liver transplant in Fall 2016, and Angelo’s latest release
wrestles with the aches of adversity and ultimately celebrates the beauty of
life and the hope he has for his daughter. A Matter of Time embraces the
soul, classic r&b and piano-pop of some of Angelo’s more prominent
influences -- Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Elton John -- while
fearlessly venturing into new sonic territory to compete with pop
contemporaries like Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake. Alongside his finest
songwriting to date, Angelo’s voice resounds as an irrefutable force as he
carries listeners to new places unfamiliar to the likes of modern pop music.
A Matter of Time debuted at #12 on the iTunes singer-songwriter
charts and has already garnered more than 650,000 streams on Spotify.
Chris Ayer is an artist that has both a rawness of performance and a sense of poetic lyricism that, when combined, create something socially urgent and uniquely timeless. Between his sharp pop sensibility and his strong heritage in the American singer-songwriter tradition, the Los Angeles-based Ayer continues to defy genres and inspire generations.
Born in California, and raised in Virginia, Chris has built a reputation for uplifting and emotive solo shows in and around New York City’s Lower East Side, as well as inspiring collaborations with other up-coming artists – including longtime tour-mate Matt Simons (‘Catch & Release’, ‘With You’) and most recently with acclaimed DJ and producer Palm Trees (‘Casanova’, ‘You Were the One’).
Over the past few years Chris has played over 1000 shows throughout North America and Europe. In early 2017 Chris completed a national headlining tour of the United States, he performed for a crowd of 5,500 at AFAS Live in Amsterdam supporting Matt Simons, and he was added to lineup for this year’s Pinkpop Festival in The Netherlands – where he will be sharing the bill with the likes of Green Day, System Of A Down, Martin Garrix and Kings of Leon.
Ayer’s last single, ‘On The Blvd’, was released in 2016 and has since racked up more than a million streams on Spotify alone. The single received some major radio airplay throughout the Netherlands and Belgium.
Chris has released his followup single, ‘Stay Another Night’, worldwide on May 19th via PIAS.
