Virgins Family Band
Morning Brigade is a folk-rock band based in Chapel Hill, NC. They have been described in press as "autumnal indie folk" and have been praised for a sound that is at once both epic and intimate. The band has played headlining gigs at such venues as Local 506 and Jack Sprat, and has opened for Megafaun at UNC's Historic Playmakers Theatre. The group is in the process of finishing their debut EP, which will be released this summer.
Clockwork Kids are an alternative rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina formed in February 2012 by lead singer/songwriter and bass guitarist Justin Ellis. Though originally intended as a temporary outlet for musical expression, the band gained popularity in the UNC- Chapel Hill community and quickly established itself as one of its premier student bands. In summer 2012, the band was rounded out with guitarist Jeff DeLuca, guitarist/ keyboardist /soundscapist Chris Petto, guitarist/ bassist Patrick Carney, and drummer Mike Carney. The band has since been busy writing material, recording demos, and recently completed their first tour around the state of North Carolina. With a sound described by the INDY Weekly magazine as "a [reverent] take on early R.E.M.", the band aims to combine the massive three-guitar approach of bands such as Radiohead and Shearwater with the more introspective lyricism of bands like Elbow and The Cure, with a decidedly 90's shoegaze-tinged flavor.
"The band's shows make it obvious that its five members are not only talented musicians, but talented showmen as well. Whether leading with a soothing acoustic guitar or a manic electric, the band's deft blend of vastly differing guitar styles is bound to put you on your feet." - Carolina BluePrint
