Eliot Bronson

"Eliot Bronson is the type of songwriter who could squeeze out something meaningful about taking out the trash. He writes heartfelt songs with dark humor and backs them with his resonant voice and swampy instruments. Back in his hometown of Baltimore, he was dubbed a “folk-singing wunderkind.” He then moved to Atlanta and started the Brilliant Inventions with Josh Lamkin. The duo quickly won the Best New Local Music Act in the 2008 Creative Loafing Reader’s Poll. [As well as The Eddie's Attic Shoot Out, and Most Wanted Emerging Artists at The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival] The band broke up in 2010. Lamkin became a full-time photographer while Bronson released his first solo record, Blackbirds, to wide critical acclaim. Bronson just released his second CD, Milwaukee, with a backing band, Yonder Orphans. The band includes Sugarland’s original guitarist, Bret Hartley, and BoDeans drummer Kevin Leahy. The album pays tribute to Rodney Lanier, who, until his death in 2011, was one of the most beloved musicians in Charlotte, NC, fronting bands such as Jolene and Sea of Cortez."

Ross Adams

Ross Adams is a singer-songwriter originally from Winston-Salem, NC. Ross meticulously weaves stories of loss, longing and hope all in the shadows of his two major influences, Justin Townes Earle and Bob Dylan.

His lyrics and voice meld together to form an honest, intricate and heartbroken autobiography, all the while retaining relatability to anyone lucky enough to notice. Ross' clever and unique picking style is a refreshing burst onto the singer-songwriter scene. He has played a plethora of shows in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas.
