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,”...

Goldie & The Screamers have a mission to move you: to create music that stirs your heart without neglecting your body. This Asheville based Soul/Neo Soul outfit have been quickly building a loyal following since their first public performance in the Spring of 2014.

Think of a rustic cabin where the roots of the writing were born. 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. In a nutshell, this is Sidecar Honey. Down home roots sounds with an original modern edge. Vocalist/guitarist Dave Dribbon, vocalist/mandolinist Jeff Honeycutt and lap steel/banjo/guitarist Randy Dzielak are the songwriters. Their songs are Indie/Americana/Rock. With strong vocals/harmonies and a dynamic but sometimes...
