Underhill Rose with Holly and the Guy

The Empty Glass, 410 Elizabeth Street, Charleston, WV

 

“Underhill Rose cast a decidedly feminine presence on the Americana scene, which is largely male-oriented. This trio of lovely young women could have sold out to Nashville from their good looks and pretty voices alone, but thankfully they decided to opt for a vintage country sound. More specifically, Underhill Rose is rooted in bluegrass, folk, and blues, linking them with indelible pop hooks and soulful harmonizing.”

The Fever

The Empty Glass, 410 Elizabeth Street, Charleston, WV

 

"Their sound lies somewhere between bluesrock, punk and new wave. They call themselves The Fever and infect you with their music" - RADIO M94.5

"THE FEVER HEATS UP LOS ANGELES" "With a flair for extremes – including both wearing nipple tape on stage and music videos with references to DV (domestic violence) – its safe to expect things to get a little hot when you're exposed to The Fever." - SUPERGOODMUSIC

"LA punk rockers THE FEVER offer up some ballsy Neo-Wave tunes reminiscent of some of the best bands from NYC and San Francisco circa late 1970's. Coco's vocals echo another beauty, Debby Harry, but with a tinge of bored junkie adding an edgier sound. Listen to Romeo Void's classic "Never Say Never" and you could imagine The Fever sharing the stage with them. Lead guitarist/bass player Teut licks have a raw punkish sound but his proficiency elevates him closer to new-wave. In both "Cheap Tattoo" and "Chicka Boom" he grinds out distorted power chords backed by his fat bass beats while Coco snarls lyrics at you. Besides sounding great they also look great so I'd be really surprised if these guys aren't a big hit. Rock on guys!" -DickTator

Fingers

The Empty Glass, 410 Elizabeth Street, Charleston, WV

 

Fingers was formed in late 2012 by Yashi Bellomy, Max Slater and Vincent Valentino after a disagreement over the proper way to make a ruben sandwich. After building a name with their energetic live shows and songs that spanned a diverse range of genres, Fingers entered the studio in 2013, recording their first EP Kenji. Following this release, the band toured throughout the midwest, playing multiple music festivals, and experimenting with a growing array of sonic textures. Fingers once again entered the studio in an effort to capture the energy behind their live shows and showcase a handful of new songs written over an extremely fruitful year. The band is now releasing Little Waves, their second EP. Challenging themselves and listeners with new material and a wider pallet of instrumentations, Little Waves offers a taste of what's to come from these deep-pocketed, Ohio-based groove-rockers.

Brad Heller and the Fustics

The Empty Glass, 410 Elizabeth Street, Charleston, WV

 

Hailing from Wilmington, North Carolina, Brad Heller and The Fustics continue to expand their audience throughout the east coast with spirited live shows, and acclaimed studio releases.

Blending an array of musical genres into their own distinctive style, the band has evolved from humble acoustic beginnings to a high-energy touring outfit. Incorporating a slab of blues, gallons of folk, a pint of punk, and a hint of country within their blue-collar rock, The Fustics have increased their base through radio, the internet, print media, and a heavy touring schedule.

With the upcoming 2012 release of their fourth full-length record “American Burden” the band has reached new heights sonically with sharp production, and tightly crafted original songs.

Voted Wilmington’s “Best Original Rock Band,” these poets of the underclass continue to impress audiences alike with a style, sound, and voice that is truly their own

Post Mountain Stage Jam Hosted by the Carpenter Ants

The Empty Glass, 410 Elizabeth Street, Charleston, WV

 

Stop Down and see who shows up to Jam with the Ants!

On the Show this Week

Dawes – The California-based roots rocking Dawes consists of brothers Taylor Goldsmith and Griffin Goldsmith - whose father Lenny was the lead singer for the legendary Tower of Power - Wylie Weber and Tay Strathairn. Formed in the Los Angeles suburb of North Hills, this young group quickly became a favorite or critics, fans - and the veteran musicians who influenced its music. After connecting with producer Jonathan Wilson, the group began sitting in on informal jam sessions at Wilson's house with Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst, the Heartbreakers' Benmont Tench, and the Black Crowes' Chris Robinson. These sessions informed the group's stunning 2009 debut, “North Hills.” The follow-up, “Nothing Is Wrong,” again featured Tench as well as Jackson Browne - who has since invited the band to both support and back him on a European tour. That same year, the band played at the Occupy Wall Street protests and performed a cameo on the prime-time network television show “Parenthood.” After Goldsmith contributed vocals to Robbie Robertson’s “How To Become Clairvoyant” CD, the famed guitarist/songwriter asked Dawes to serve as his backing combo for a number of performances. Dawes was also tapped by rock legend John Fogerty for his duets release, “Wrote a Song For Everyone.” The group’s latest release is titled “All Your Favorite Bands.”

Steelism - This Nashville-based instrumental duo is comprised of guitarist Jeremy Fetzer, pedal steel player Spencer Cullum, and backed by some of Nashville’s finest young musicians. Cullum and Fetzer - from Essex, England and Canton, Ohio respectively - have backed artists including Wanda Jackson, Johnny Fritz, Rayland Baxter and Andrew Combs. The two met while touring the U.K. with Nashville songstress Caitlin Rose and formed a musical bond based on their love for movie soundtrack composers like Ennio Morricone, ‘60s instrumental acts like Booker T. and the M.G.s, The Ventures and Pete Drake, and krautrock groups like Neu! and Can.Their debut EP, “The Intoxicating Sounds of Pedal Steel and Guitar,” was met with critical acclaim as was the duo’s current release, “615 to FAME.”

Seth Glier - On his fourth album for MPress Records, If I Could Change One Thing (April 2015), Glier embraces a genuine modern-pop direction, marking a bold departure from his previous, more acoustic recordings and the beginning of an exciting relationship with Los Angeles-based producer/songwriter Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Joshua Radin, Dashboard Confessional). "Bill's energy, drive, and experience gave me a safe place to get creative and tap into a deeper part of my inner voice that has yet to be heard on any of my previous albums." The album includes a gorgeous duet with American Idol's Crystal Bowersox, as well as musical appearances by Pat Matera (Katy Perry) and Daniel Rhine (Sara Bareilles). Featuring collaborations with renowned songwriter Trent Dabbs ("Girls Chase Boys" / Ingrid Michaelson), hitmaker Steve Seskin (Tim McGraw, Peter Frampton), and Alex Wong (Delta Rae, Vienna Teng), If I Could Change One Thing merges genres seamlessly, with universal songs about falling in and out of love and social action that capture a songwriter and performer at the peak of his young abilities.

Natalia Zukerman - Multi-talented Natalia Zukerman grew up in New York City, studied art at Oberlin, worked in mural arts in San Francisco, began her songwriting career in Boston, and now resides, writes, plays and paints in Brooklyn, NY. The daughter of classical musicians Eugenia and Pinchas Zukerman, Natalia embraced American roots music - folk, bluegrass, jazz and blues music - and found her instrumental voice on slide guitar, lap steel, dobro. She’s worked with fellow musicians such as Janis Ian, Willy Porter, Susan Werner, Erin McKeown, AG, Garrison Starr and many others. She also joined with well-known folk singer/songwriters Anne Heaton, Antje Duvekot and Meg Hutchinson for an album in 2008, titled Winterbloom, which they also named the band. Natalia’s sixth studio release is titled “Come Thief, Come Fire” and features her father on violin.

Gill Landry - Louisiana native, Gill Landry, is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist - among other things. Since 2004, Landy has played guitar, banjo, pedal steal, and is a contributing songwriter in Old Crow Medicine Show. While he shares many of the same influences as Old Crow - from Dylan to old delta blues - his songs tell vivid stories and have been compared to Tom Waits, John Prine, and Steve Earle. He released his first solo album, "The Ballad of Lawless Soirez," in 2007. His current, self-titled release is on the ATO label.

The Pea Pickin Hearts with Fish Fisher

The Empty Glass, 410 Elizabeth Street, Charleston, WV

 

The Pea Pickin’ Hearts are an Americana duo influenced by the sounds of the 1940s & 50s and have called Gatlinburg, TN home for almost a decade. Lead singer Rachel Gibson & guitarist Jon Ives create unique harmonies that can only develop after years of listening–one to the other. The name “Pea Pickin’ Hearts” is a reference to none other than Tennessee Ernie Ford’s famous line “Bless your pea pickin’ heart” –a Southern euphemism for ‘simple & country’. The name is a tribute to their history together & their Tennessee home.

The Pea Pickin’ Hearts released a folk-inspired CD, “Creekwood Crow” (August 2014), and spend most of their days touring the eastern US playing & singing their unique Americana mashup of country, rockabilly, folk & hillbilly tunes. They are currently working on a second winter-inspired Holiday CD slated for release in early December. Check out their calendar at PeaPickinHearts.com to find them on the road!
