SINNERS & SAINTS
SINNERS & SAINTS
Since the band’s formation in 2011, Charlotte, NC country crooners Sinners & Saints have brought their live show to many a main stage or festival with a combination of regional tours in the Southeast and regular appearances across their native Charlotte. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Flogging Molly, Shovel and Rope, 500 Miles to Memphis, Bombadil and many others as they seek to spread their whiskey drinking, shit kickin’, sweet loving music to as many ears as they can find. Their 2014 release, Love and Misery also brings the band’s first partnership with Silent Uproar Records, who will help with the promotion and distribution of the release.

The band features Perry Fowler on guitar, vocals, kick snare, and harmonica and Mark Baran on stand-up bass, vocals, kick drum, tenor banjo. Their latest album was recorded by Electromagnetic Radio Recorders in Winston Salem, NC in the fall of 2013. Other southern talent EMRR has worked in the past include The Avett Brothers, The Wood Brothers, Mad Tea Party, Overmountain Men, Lou Ford, and Poprocket. Love and Misery also features special guest Geoff White of Overmountain Men, Appalucia, and Leadville Social Club playing fiddle, mandolin, and 5 string banjo.
BOMBADIL
BOMBADIL
Two years ago, Bombadil lost a longtime bandmate and breaking up seemed inevitable. But after a period of exploration that forced them to step out of their comfort zone, Bombadil has returned as a band reborn. Their new album ‘Fences,’ out 3/3 via Ramseur Records and produced by John Vanderslice (Spoon, The Mountain Goats), is their most remarkable work to date: meticulously crafted, yet accessible and unadorned. Pure, simple, beautiful.

“It’s more than just an album,” says Bombadil drummer and vocalist James Phillips. “It is a new path, a reset after several challenging years.”

‘Fences’ features eleven new, original songs composed by the Durham, NC-based trio – Phillips (drums, vox), Daniel Michalak (bass, vox) and Stacey Harden (guitar, vox). Recorded at Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco, CA, the album is influenced by early Paul Simon and steeped in shades of Cat Stevens and The Incredible String Band.

“Sometimes you 'produce' the hell out of a record because the material needs to be lifted and transformed,” says Vanderslice. “These songs and performances were so strong I mostly just put up a Neumann U67 and stood out of the way."

Bombadil has made fans at NPR, Rolling Stone and the New York Times, who called them "astonishing." Time Out New York said their music is “bursting with irresistible melodies, unexpected lyrical gems, and moments of profound honesty, all anchored by expert songwriting skills." They've toured extensively in the past with Dr. Dog, Kishi Bashi and Carolina Chocolate Drops and will hit the road again in 2017 in support of the new album.
