Black Robin Hero plays live in the tasting room at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC.Fresh off their newly released debut rock n' roll album Narrow Plains EP (recorded at the famed Echo Mountain Studios), Black Robin Hero has been gaining a reputation in Western North Carolina and the Southeast as a band that commands attention. The Asheville, NC based band "comes out of the gate with cymbals flaring, guitars revving, kick-drum taking a beating in the punch and dance.

Allen Thompson Band plays live in the tasting room at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC.

Take a look at Allen Thompson’s record collection, and you’ll see names like the Grateful Dead, Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, the Black Crowes, and the Band -- groups that feel more like musical communities than straightforward rock bands.

The same sense of community anchors the Allen Thompson Band, a rootsy outfit from Nashville, TN. Thompson’s country-soul vocals and earthy, literate songwriting may anchor the group’s latest album, “Salvation in the Ground,” but this isn’t a solo project. It’s collaboration between all six members.

“Ever since I began building a band,”...

Lazybirds is a classic American band with roots in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Formed in 1996, the quartet began by immersing into the old forgotten styles of blues, jazz, country, and ragtime that had been the soundtrack of the American underground several decades earlier. The band quickly developed a reputation in the High Country for playing music that touches people at their core in a way that hearkens back to a time when music was more closely intertwined with nature.

Then you open the doors of the cabin and step out to a busy city street, where lights are flashing and you just feel like in a matter of minutes, you've just experienced the best of both worlds.

With strong vocals/harmonies and a dynamic but sometimes...
