Atlas Road Crew
Originally based out of Columbia, SC, Atlas Road Crew is the next big breakout artist from the Southeast. Now calling Charleston, SC home, ARC is stepping into the spotlight with an ambitious Fall 2013 tour.
It's no wonder that they caught the attention of Grammy-Award-Winning Mark Bryan of Hootie and the Blowfish who produced their debut EP Atlas Road Crew to rave reviews in the Fall of 2012.
It seems as if Atlas Road Crew has arrived from another decade as their old-school sound oozes vintage 70s rock dripping with influences ranging from the Rolling Stones to The Band to the Allmans but with modern influences like The Black Keys and Kings of Leon. With an extensive catalog of unique covers and a rapidly growing list of in-demand originals, Atlas Road Crew has been the rarest of Columbia, SC area bands able to sell out Columbia's premiere music hall (400 capacity) at every performance and even on multiple night runs. Their time on the fraternity circuit over the past 18 months has brought their name to thousands of new faces, quickly establishing them in multiple markets and earning a legion of new fans.
Practicing in a storage unit on Atlas Road in Columbia, SC (hence the name), the band quickly begun molding, tweaking and perfecting its old-school rock 'n' roll sound. Despite the sweltering heat that often stifled the small unit during marathon practice sessions, the band stripped down heavy technology in favor of the more guitar-driven, easy riding sound that seemed to come naturally.
Atlas Road Crew is: Taylor Nicholson (vocals, guitar) from Pawley's Island, SC; Max Becker (bass) from Charleston, SC; Dave Beddingfield (guitar) from Charlotte, NC; Bryce James (piano) from Columbia, SC and Patrick Drohan (drums) from Great Falls, VA.
Black Iron Gathering
The Black Iron Gathering is recognized as a multi genre band somewhere between the "Punk & Folk" sound.

The Black Iron Gathering writes high energy blue grass style power anthems, catchy ballads, and thick instrumental grooves that pulse for live show dancing and contagious sing-along. TBIG released self produced album in Spring/Summer of 2011 (The Brown Album) as well as a studio release 5 song EP. The band has started festival and venue dates to support the recordings up through 2014. The band will simultaneously release another studio EP, a self produced collection and live concert recording series in early 2014.
