Matrimony is Ashlee Hardee Brown, Jimmy Brown, Jordan Hardee, Alex Watson and Shae Wooten.
Matrimony began as a duo in 2009. With Ashlee's Americana-rock influences and Jimmy's Irish-folk roots, Matrimony blends modern anti-folk and indie rock in their debut EP "The Storm & The Eye" produced by Joel Khouri of Bright City Studios and self-released to critical acclaim in August, 2010.
Following the release, Matrimony toured across the country and shared the stage with acts including Mumford & Sons, Gillian Welch, Modest Mouse, Langhorne Slim and Nathaniel Rateliff.
In early 2011, Jordan, Alex and Shae joined Matrimony. With a common passion for songwriting and an original sound, the line up became complete. The five-piece recently concluded a tour on the east coast with a performance at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
Roseland is an Americana Rock band consisting of members of Greensboro, NC music veterans House of Fools and Hot Politix. Paying homage to classic rock and country artists like CSNY, Gram Parsons and Tom Petty as well as alternative staples such as The Jayhawks and Teenage Fanclub, the quartet utilizes three part harmonies, syncopated rhythms and colorful textures to craft ultra listenable sing-alongs. Having stayed relatively close to home in 2013 to develop themselves regionally while recording their debut full length, Roseland will be on the road throughout the summer and fall in support of their upcoming self titled release.

eric-scott guthrie is a North Carolina born songwriter with a distinctive voice and a unique guitar style that often hearkens to the roots of folk music, even as his songs push into interesting and unexplored sonic territories. At times extraordinarily cerebral, at other times raw and purely emotional, he toes a line that few performers manage to walk as he spins his yarns of love, life, loss, and discovery into a beautiful tapestry.
