Laura Reed

South African born singer/songwriter Laura Reed has been captivating audiences globally with her dynamic vocals, vulnerable songwriting, and inspiring live performances. Laura cut her teeth as an artist early on, performing at coffee shops and street corners from age 16 throughout North Carolina. Laura currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee where she was beckoned by mentor, former music executive and Grammy-award winning producer, Paul Worley.

It was Paul who introduced Laura to 2X Grammy award winning songwriter/producer Shannon Sanders (India.Arie/John Legend/Pink) and encouraged a collaboration. Laura and Sanders immediately hit it off and began writing and performing locally. Laura is currently working on her debut album, "The Awakening" with Sanders and Worley. The first single off the project "Faith not Fear" was released in May of 2012. Laura’s authentic "slow-cooked soul music recipe” is reminiscent of iconic music trendsetters like Erykah Badu, Adele, Sade, Lauryn Hill and the late Amy Winehouse.

Laura's music has been seasoned by influences from her background work with icons such as George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, as well as her extensive global travels (15 countries and three languages thus far); a delivery that has hints of Samba, Hip Hop, and African beats. Laura recently joined Sony/ATV and plans to release her debut album "The Awakening" in 2013.

The Chit Nasty Band

Ecstasy. It fills the faces of fans at the live shows, emanates from the bodies shaking to the powerful rhythms of three guitars, drums, and keyboards. Plain and simple, this band makes people happy.
The Chit Nasty Band is the creation of Christian “Chit” Foushee-Green, singer, songwriter, and keyboardist extraordinaire. Raised in the music of the black church, Foushee-Green knows how to inspire an audience through upbeat lyrics, onstage dance moves, and expert musicianship. His trademark sound harkens back to the funk bands of the 70s and 80s, but with a contemporary flair that reflects the vibrant music scene of Chapel Hill/Durham, North Carolina.
Foushee-Green has assembled around him a group of expert musicians whose steady, powerful sound gives him the platform on which to freelance. Bassist Kyle Cox, a veteran of Lucky Strike, Lila, Toon and the Real Laww, and En Serenade creates the foundation with bass lines guaranteed to loosen up the tightest bod. Guitarist Jackson Manuel adds soaring, precise leads, and backing vocals that rival any of today’s professional singers. Trading leads and vocals with Manuel is guitarist John Faltass. John’s Sphinx-like expression belies a playful soul whose aim is “to put your head in the clouds while keeping your feet on the ground.” Drummer Evrick Lee, “E” for short, joined the group in 2013. Creative and upbeat, E is described by the band as “the drummer we were always looking for.”
