** Shonna Tucker & Eye Candy - <b>CANCELLED</b>

Shonna Tucker & Eye Candy

Shonna Tucker grew up in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, listening to the same salty-sweet mix of soul and country that made up the Arthur Alexander and James Carr singles recorded there decades before. She played bass in the Shoals scene from her high-school years until starting an eight-year stint as bassist and singer for the Drive-By Truckers. The music she makes today in Athens, Georgia, flows from the same vein as the music she grew up with: songs that haunt and float like Dolly’s “Down from Dover” and ones that pulse and move like Otis’ “Hard to Handle,” rockers that are right at home on the stage of the 40 Watt downtown and folk songs that are at home among the donkeys and hens on her farm outside town.

The Miners

The Miners are an original alt country band based in Philadelphia, PA (yes, there are alt country bands in Philly). Originally formed in 2007, The Miners are known for their country-infused, guitar and pedal steel guitar laden, alt country originals influenced by the likes of Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, the Jayhawks, Gram Parsons, and Buck Owens. Co-founded by Keith Marlowe, the current line-up of Marlowe (lead vocals, guitar), Andy Shahan (drums, vocals), David Thornburgh (pedal steel and lap steel guitars) and Gregg Hiestand (bass).

The Miners debut release, Miner’s Rebellion, a six-song EP, was released in November 2012 to critical acclaim and notable airplay. The Miners received a featured write-up on No Depression and were featured twice on Bill Frater’s legendary podcast, Freight Train Boogie. Miners’ Rebellion has drawn praise from alt country/Americana blogs both in the U.S. and overseas where it was named a Top-10 release for 2013 by Adobe & Teardrops, was chosen as the #1 Debut Release of 2013 by the blog Popa’s Tunes, and a Best of 2013 by UK radio show Standing in the Shadows of Lev.

Miners’ Rebellion has received airplay on alt country/Americana radio programs in the U.S. and overseas including Wrecking Ball Radio (Chapel Hill, NC; #1 on weekly playlist in March 2013), Radio Free Americana (Verona, VA; #11 on their weekly top-200 artists in February 2013), Redbud Radio Show (Indianapolis, IN), Roots, Rock Review (Z88.9 NJ), The Kitchen Party (WPMG Portland, ME), American Roots and Standing in the Shadows of Lev in the UK, and the Songriver Show and Radio Girl Show out of the Netherlands. Miners’ Rebellion also receives Philadelphia airplay on WXPN on Helen Leicht’s XPN Local Show.
