Joe May of Pluto Gang

Nov. 26, 2020

Pluto Gang is a 6 piece band from Charlotte, North Carolina and they have a super interesting story, one that probably would have been told very differently if not for COVID-19, the pandemic and the lockdowns. In fact, the irony is that the pandemic may have sped things along for the band, in terms…

Mike Gantzer of Aqueous

Nov. 19, 2020

Nov. 13, 2020

Steep Canyon Rangers

Oct. 29, 2020

Grammy award winning Steep Canyon Rangers recently released their first album of 2020 Arm in Arm. I say that somewhat tongue and cheek, because this latest release follows two great releases in 2019 North Carolina Songbook and Be Still Moses. The album which was recorded over several days at the So…
