Jazz pianist and composer Chan Hall’s soothing grooves provide a vibrant, expansive landscape of poetry in motion; influenced by Herbie Hancock, George Duke, Chick Corea, and George Benson. The July 2011 release of Chan’s debut album Dreaming Afterdark has gained buzz throughout the mid-Atlantic jazz community. The project is the culmination of a lifetime of dreams deferred for this jazz keyboardist. A native of Wilson, North Carolina, William “Chan” Hall started playing the piano by ear at the age of 15. But it was playing basketball that ruled his teenage years. He dreamed of becoming a superstar athlete at North Carolina State University. At the same time, he was a standout percussionist in his high school concert band. He was featured on the xylophone, vibes, marimba, bass drum, and auxiliary percussion instruments. During those years, his band instructor introduced him to jazz music. He instantly fell in love and even more so when the possibility of playing college...

The Truehearts

Aug 19, 2017 |  0 comments

The Truehearts (formerly The Hummingbyrds) are an Americana duo comprised of singer/songwriters Debra Buonaccorsi (vocals, guitar, accordion) & Steve McWilliams (vocals, guitar, mandolin). Their original music is characterized by close harmonies and close ties to the roots of American country and folk music; rich with the sound of wood and steel and stories of the everyman.  Their songs are melodic, expressive and muscular, ranging from melancholic ballads to boot-stomping rockabilly.​ Buonaccorsi’s vocals have drawn comparisons to a wide range of artists from Emmylou Harris to Bonnie Raitt, but her sound and style are still uniquely her own. Her voice is a deep palette of colors and sounds that is both heartfelt and knowing. Debra’s guitar and accordion evoke the sounds of the past and bring them to the present. Mcwilliams heart on his sleeve style of playing and singing recall the best of Springsteen and Earle. Visceral and gritty yet from deep in the soul, Steve...

American singer/songwriter and actor Moot Davis was born and raised in the working class enclave of Trenton, New Jersey. For the past 16 years he has toured around the world and released four albums. Hierarchy of Crows, the upcoming fifth studio album, was recorded entirely in Hollywood, California starting back in 2014 during brief breaks from the road. There is a distinct, harder edge to the songs while still retaining his Honky-tonk & Americana roots. Moot moves into heavy riff-driven rock and roll with his fifth album, creating a lush sonic landscape of danger, loss, rebellion and wounds that will never heal. Moot has 21 songs in films such as the Academy Award winning “CRASH” and hit film “THE HILLS HAVE EYES” as well as numerous television shows. Moot and his band will be on tour in the U.S. and Europe to support the release of Hierarchy of Crows starting in Summer of 2017.

Infectious melodies & high energy songwriting makes menagerie an immediate favorite among Taterheads! You’ll be singing along by the second verse! This is songwriting from a time when irresistible hooks were just expected, and the Taters don’t disappoint! Roots-pop: an eclectic mix of roots-rock, power-pop, country, and Americana, a sound that’s been described as “Country roots-pop with the genius songwriting of 60’s & 70’s power-pop, …a curious mix of Mavericks, Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and Beatles” (CDBaby). Billboard Magazine calls it “American roots-rock with thoroughly modern, totally hip sensibilities”. No Depression magazine describes it like this: “Think ‘Beatles For Sale’ if Marty Robbins were a primary influence instead of Carl Perkins.” The Washington Post says the Taters “Successfully combine the best elements of Buddy Holly with the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers.” Members Craig Evans – Vocals, bass, piano Brad Tucker...
