Born from the rolling thunder of the Tennessee mountains, New Madrid is glad to now call Athens, GA home. The band, settled into a big red barn just outside of town, is taking the southeast by storm. Drawing heavy influence from alt-country and noise rock alike, these four young performers create captivating soundscapes that are simultaneously dense and expansive. With reverb-drenched vocal harmonies that soar over a lush and textured musical patchwork, New Madrid evolved seamlessly from bedroom project to polished product. They are now rightfully considered one of the brightest up-and-coming groups emerging from Athen's storied scene.
In 2012, the band recorded and independently released their debut full-length album Yardboat, mixed and tracked by legendary Athens engineer/producer David Barbe (REM, Drive-By Truckers, Deerhunter) at his Chase Park Transduction studio. The album was recorded mostly live and on traditional analogue tape over a impressive three-day stretch. It was then mastered by Brooklyn-based engineer Joe Lambert (Black Crowes, Animal Collective, Dan Deacon).
Fresh off their first release, the band has been steadily touring the region with a head of steam. Given their voracious appetite for writing and recording as well as their high-energy live performances, this ship shows no sign of slowing.

Given life in 2011 and named after the late grandmother of Dylan Dickerson, Dear Blanca consists of Dickerson himself and long-time bandmate Marc Coty on drums. Offering an eclectic range of sounds inspired by diverse acts such as 80′s punk group Minutemen as well as Townes Van Zandt, Dear Blanca promises energetic rock music coupled with folk-songwriting aesthetics both mild-mannered and rambunctious.
