The Band of Heathens

The term “Americana” was practically invented to describe The Band of Heathens’ approach, which has mutated almost as much as the genre to which they’re identified. And while the Rolling Stones and The Beatles remain touchstones on new songs of theirs like “Sugar Queen” and “Deep Is Love,” respectively, influences as diverse as Sly and the Family Stone (in the psychedelic fuzz-tones of “Daddy Long Legs”) and Latin music (“Road Dust Wheels”) also rear their heads on the band’s latest album Duende [duen-de].

Indeed, Duende (released Jan 13, 2017) lives up to those high ideals, a stylistically diverse effort that takes a leap beyond their last, more acoustic, introspective effort, 2013’s Sunday Morning Record, with an eclectic batch of material that shows where The Band of Heathens has been, but more importantly, where they are going.

Have shared the stage with the likes of Tedeschi Trucks Band, Blackberry Smoke, Hayes Carll, and Trombone Shorty, among others.

Festival performances include: Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Hardly Strictly, Old Settlers, and many more.

Supervillains w/ Smokey Chisholm

The Florida-bred swamp reggae rockers have been bending genres, partying hard, touring the world, and leaving tales of joy and destruction in their wake.

Write Minded

Based out of the Foothills of Colorado, Write Minded is a fresh and tasteful addition to the National music scene. With a unique mixture of hip-hop, rock, funk,reggae, and soul, Write Minded pushes the confining boundaries of genre to bring you something brand-new.
The group materialized when Sam and Jesse branched from a local collective and began focusing on an acoustic hip-hop set. In preparation for a larger gig, TurtleBear, Fofo, and Willy slid right in bringing flavors of psychedelic rock, true funk, electronic hip hop, and so many other tasty sounds that added a multitude of dynamics. What formed out of the experience was an exclusive blend of music that ultimately developed into Write Minded.
Things took off after the release of the Write Minded Demo, and just one year later, Write Minded released their debut album, “Eye Above”.

Zach Deputy

An Evening With Zach Deputy (2 Sets!)

On his path towards becoming a successful touring musician, Zach Deputy serendipitously landed a solo gig in his early 20s by walking into a bar just after that night’s featured artist had bailed. Deputy soon introduced the world to the sound he’d eventually dub “island-infused, drum ‘n’ bass, gospel-ninja-soul.” By 2008 he’d released his debut album Out of the Water and—thanks to his ingenuity in looping—made his name as an unforgettable one-man-band live act. The new music kept flowing, and since then Deputy has released four critically acclaimed full length studio albums. As a special sneak peek into his new music, Zach will sprinkle songs from his upcoming album throughout his sets this fall.
Reflecting on his live shows, Zach says “music to me is about bringing people together from all walks of life and living in the moment with a joyful heart!” Deputy’s one man show creates a unique experience straight from the soul every night, raw and uncut with absolutely nothing prerecorded. As a pioneer of looping and synth guitar work well ahead of his time, he’s taken the technology to uncharted lands delivering a pocket groove unique to the ears. Zach says, “call me crazy, but I’ve always believed live music should always be live, but I’ve also always loved a good tranced out dance party too.” With this in mind he tailored his performances to meet his convictions. Combining his family roots Island vibe with his low country southern soul, a pinch of tranced out hippy hop, and a vast amount of talent, Zach’s sound emerges in focus.

Concertgoers can look forward to a unique live music experience. Zach plays a different set every night as an ultimate expression of living in the moment, with the hopes of opening windows to people’s souls to remind them of how good it feels to be alive.
