Find Your Muse Open Mic
Find Your Muse Open Mic is Charlotte's premier open mic night. Each week we feature a special guest performer from around the region. Come out and see some of the area's best up & coming talent perform their latest original tunes. Always a fun time, hosted by the semi-hilarious Mr. Erik Button. Look forward to the start of a great Monday night at 7:30pm as you are greeted by the rest of our FYM team; Aaaaron at the door, Donniebaseball behind the bar serving up cold ones, and Normal Dennis doing his best at making it all sound great from behind the board. Sign ups are at 7:45, so come out and get your time slot. Participate in The "Bad-Ass" of the Week, and maybe win a $20 gift card.
23 year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Haley Dreis currently resides in Nashville, TN, where she teaches violin, tours, records, and writes music for herself and others. In her hometown of Columbia, SC critics favor her as "one of the scene's brightest voices" (Otis Taylor, The State newspaper) - and her debut full-length album as "a perfectly realized and surprisingly mature and polished pop gem from the still-young Dreis, who is as promising a pop talent as Columbia's ever seen" (Patrick Wall, Columbia Free-Times).
She has recorded and toured throughout the southeast with Jay Clifford (of Jump Little Children) and Josh Kaler (of Slow Runner); and has performed alongside national acts such as We The Kings, Tonic, Edwin McCain, Toby Lightman, & Chris Barron (of Spin Doctors). She has performed at legendary venues such as the Bitter End (NYC), Eddie's Attic (Decatur, GA), Bluebird Cafe (Nashville), and most recently graced the stage at the Grande Ole Opry where she played violin in the orchestra for Grammy Award-winning gospel artist Kirk Franklin at the Stellar Music Awards.
Dreis is a high school graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts and a recent cum laude graduate of the University of South Carolina Honors College.
Her most recent 3rd full-length album, "Lady With A Rocket" (September 2012) was honored "New and Noteworthy" on iTunes. Her full-length debut album "Beautiful to Me" (July, 2009) and her sophomore release "Taking Time" (March, 2011) are also available on iTunes and other digital retailers. She has collectively fan-funded over $18,000 via Kickstarter to independently release her albums.
