Nashville Pussy, Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band, Appalucia, AM/FM's

Nashville Pussy

True rock n' roll doesn't require definition. It's self-explanatory based on a gut feeling and the unconditional devotion to the musical genre. Nashville Pussy have celebrated their brand of genuine rock n' roll for more than a decade, in classic style at times, surprising at others, but always earthy, raw and unadulterated. The band's mastermind Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar), his wife Ruyter Suys (guitar), Karen Cuda (bass) and Jeremy Thompson (drums) make up Nashville Pussy.

Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band

A founding member of The .357 String Band and current member of the Goddamn Gallows, Jayke Orvis is ahead of his time even though he plays timeless music. The songs on his solo effort “It’s All Been Said” are articles of the heart, exposing Orvis as a fragile, troubled soul. His depictions of love are raw and blue, the pages of his life littered throughout this album.

Direct descendents from the original German settlers of the early 1800s in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. They were simple, yet skilled laborers, from poor families that came to America for a new life that consisted of basic pleasures, hard work, and living off of the rich and fertile Southern land. As the secession from the Union by the Southern states began, the Appalachian settlers knew that North Carolina would be forced to withdraw from the United States and fight for a war to sustain, among other things, slavery laws. They wanted no part in it, for the mountain colonists were too poor to afford slaves in the first place, and these proud people held allegiance to none other than their own. In fear of losing the land they'd worked so hard for, they began the Appalachia/Lucia Militia or the APPALUCIA Militia. They set up post on the mountain ridges to survey each valley below, and throughout the foothills. Whenever any company of soldiers, be they Confederate or Union, would try to pass by, the Appalucia Militiamen would ambush, forcing them to either die or retreat in hopes of finding a new passage. Eventually, both sides of this Civil War would call this area the "Cohee Trail" and avoid it at all cost. At that time, we had won our war! Meanwhile, one of the main pastimes of the people was music, having barn dances or congregations of musicians in the hollers, at the harvest festivals, or on the porches of their homes (when they weren't fighting to defend them). They began writing spiritual songs reflecting their ways of hard time living and the worship of a more down home and simple God, as opposed to the more traditional Christian Religion. In turn, these songs have been passed down generation to generation by those original settlers who later became known, and will always be remembered as the Appalucia Militia! Enjoy.
