ZOE & CLOYD
ZOE & CLOYD
Zoe & Cloyd spring from deep roots in American music. Founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio, Red June, and long-time veterans of the Asheville, NC music scene, Natalya Zoe Weinstein and John Cloyd Miller are set to release their second full-length album in spring of 2017. Highlighting their emotive songwriting and signature harmonies, this new recording finds the duo returning to a full band sound with Kevin Kehrberg on bass, and special appearances from Will Straughan of Red June on dobro and Jens Kruger of the Kruger Brothers on banjo. The new record showcases the breadth of their collective musical spirit, seamlessly combining original folk, country, old-time and bluegrass with sincerity and zeal. Zoe & Cloyd’s debut recording, Equinox (2015), met with high acclaim and the pair have continued to gain momentum with a 1st place win at the prestigious FreshGrass Festival Duo Contest along with performances at MerleFest, Music City Roots and more.

John Cloyd Miller’s foundation in traditional bluegrass and old-time music coupled with his modern sensibility combine to make him a natural musician and performer. A twelfth generation North Carolina native and the grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler and NC Folk Heritage Award winner Jim Shumate, his Appalachian roots run deep. John is well known for his haunting mountain voice as well as his instrumental prowess and award-winning songwriting. He is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest and a recipient of an Artist Fellowship for songwriting by the North Carolina Arts Council.

Natalya Zoe Weinstein also comes from a musical family: her father is master jazz pianist and her grandfather, originally from Russia, was a professional klezmer musician. She is an accomplished fiddler in a variety of styles as well as an inspired singer and songwriter. While trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts, she has spent many years fine-tuning her bluegrass and old-time fiddling with some of the country’s top traditional musicians. Now a mentor to many young players, Natalya is a sought after instructor and is in high demand as a teacher and session musician.
HOLLY LORETTE
HOLLY LORETTE
Holly Lorette lives and breathes music, and she should. The Charlotte, NC-based vocalist and songwriter hails from a strong musical family that includes her NC Folk Heritage Award winning grandfather, Jim Shumate, as well other notable songwriters and musicians.

Holly’s music has been heavily influenced by the experiences she's had growing up in the South, a part of the country rich in its complexities and contradictions. She recently released her first self titled, solo album, Holly Lorette.

“I like to think of my sound as dark folk--often a bit haunting lyrically and stylistically, but with an end goal of making peace with the emotional hardships of life. Being a part of this musical culture, surrounded by friends and family musicians has shaped how I experience and write music.”

In addition to her work as a solo artist, Holly Lorette also writes and performs with local favorite, Liz, Holly, & The Jolly Lollies an interactive band geared toward young children. For more information please visit their site here The Jolly Lollies When she’s not performing, Holly also runs her own business in Charlotte, Music With Holly, where she shares and teaches the love of music with children.
