Will Kimbrough is one of our favorites here, whether performing on his own or with Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Jimmy Buffett, or Todd Snider. ”Kimbrough’s body of work reflects a lifetime of performing, writing, and collaborating from more angles than Da Vinci’s protractor. True to his search for universal truths, his profound musical knowledge and expert creations reflect years of learning the intricacies of folk, blues, gospel, country, rock’n’roll, punk rock and jazz.” Kimbrough was born in Mobile, Alabama, and started his musical career as a founding member of Will & the Bushmen, a popular college band in the eighties that produced a handful of albums and singles and made it to MTV. He then went on to form the Bis-quits with long-time friend Tommy Meyer. The Bis-quits produced an eponymous album which was released on John Prine’s Oh Boy Records label. Will is also a producer and has produced albums for Adrienne Young, Rodney Crowell, Todd Snider, Kate...

Lucas Roy is an Internationally Touring artist from Maine. His soul soothing vocals captivate any listener and redefine smooth. He is currently working on his debut EP, expected to be released in December of 2017. He has toured in Iceland and is currently planning a tour down the East Coast of the United States for 2018. Annie Stokes is an indie-folk musician from Virginia. Raised in the nation’s capital on an eclectic mixture of musical theater, bluegrass, and classic Americana, her music is a fusion of city sounds and country soul. Although playing guitar only began as a hobby, soon her hometown was buzzing about “that girl who sounds like Jewel.” Annie’s lilting voice, poetic and introspective lyrics, and fingerpicking style draw listeners in with their rootsy and authentic feel. She’s found, after years of making music and connecting with audiences, that when the artist prioritizes the song and the human experience that it’s based on,...

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...

“Perhaps Bob Marley said it best: ““One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”” This could not be more true for live music. To me, there is nothing better than going to see a band perform. No matter what my mood was that day, if the energy from the band is on point I seem to find myself forgetting about all my troubles and letting go of all the negativity that can so easily creep up and take control of you. It is even more uplifting when you come across a group of guys that have come together as a band for all of the right reasons. This is exactly what you get when you have the opportunity to see Road Kill Roy perform. These five individuals from the Richmond area play music because it is what they love to do. While getting rich and famous might be the catalyst for some bands, the guys from Road Kill Roy want to play their music because it makes them happy. I have been seeing their name all over the place recently and finally got the opportunity to...
