Kevin Daniel

With a rollicking debut album gaining steam, emerging Americana artist Kevin Daniel is gearing up for another breakout year as 2019 saw him log 150 shows coast-to-coast. On the deftly produced, Things I Don’t See, with Ben Rice (Norah Jones, The Candles, Aoife O’Donovan) and Kenny Siegel (Langhorne Slim, Joseph Arthur, Chris Whitley) at the helm, Daniel married 10 years of New York grit with his adventurous North Carolina upbringing to tap into something sophisticated, yet primal, pure, yet raw. New world anthems, “City That Saves,” “Name of Fame,” “Jupiter” and "Time To Rise (ft. Shannon Söderlund)" showcase Daniel’s fluid ability as a songwriter to seamlessly incorporate bits of rock, soul, country, blues, roots and Appalachia into his thoughtful examination of pain and awakenings, visceral and spiritual.

With nods to Langhorne, Ryan Bingham and Jason Isbell, Daniel’s rugged, open-hearted vocals power the pickup down the alt country highway, sizzling with slide and B3 in between the seams. From the “sublime lamentation of country-tinged Americana” (No Depression) that propels “Pour Me A Drink” to the gospel-tinged “Used to Be” (an emotional tribute to his departed parents), to the rollicking “Xanax, Cocaine & Whiskey,” his incendiary cast of characters included Will Bryant (organ/keys), Lee Falco (drums), and Brandon Morrison (bass) of Hudson Valley’s, The Restless Age, guitarist Jon LaDeau from The National Reserve, and Anthony Krizan, formerly of Spin Doctors. Acclaim has piled high, with the likes of Relix Magazine, Under The Radar, Blue Ridge Outdoors, Ditty TV, Radio Woodstock, Blurt Magazine, Americana Highways, The Alternate Root, WTJU Charlottesville, and Raleigh’s That Station staking flags of support.

Live is when his manifestations come alive. Daniel, along with his blistering band, The Bottom Line, offer a nightly revival that echoes the everyman vibe of Tom Petty while conjuring the gut-busting grooves of Drive-by Truckers. Before a recent stop at famed NC outpost The Evening Muse, Daniel and his motley crew joined the likes of Gary Clark Jr, Over The Rhine and The Raconteurs as one of "7 Buzzworthy concerts" to see by Charlotte Observer. Fans observed the “soul searing and fun loving second coming of Chris Stapleton” (JW Vibe).

Seth Power

Seth Power is a 26 year-old singer/songwriter from the heart of Mississippi. As a first generation southerner who has lived the majority of his life in a small town east of “The City With Soul,” there’s no doubt that Seth’s musical style has been indelibly influenced by the soulful spark of the Blues. Growing up, Seth was heavily influenced by artists like Jonny Lang, John Mayer, Hozier, Ed Sheeran, Tom Petty, James Taylor, Bill Withers, and a broad host of other artists that span the decades. At the same time, growing up in the digital age exposed Power to music from all over the world. All of these unique influences eventually fused themselves into Seth’s psyche and his personal style of songwriting and musicianship was born. His first studio EP, “Magnolia Soul,” tells the story of a young man trying to find himself amongst the noise of the modern age. That search, mixed with the drama of some college-age relationships, provided Seth with all the ingredients he needed to detail a defining time in his life, and perhaps even more importantly, to establish the groundwork of his sound as an artist. He hopes to build on that with the release of his upcoming album, “Souvenir,” expected early 2020.

When asked where he fits on the spectrum of genre and what his hopes and dreams are for the future, Seth’s response was this: “Honestly, I feel like genres are beginning to fade, so I don’t focus too much on placing myself into any one box right now. I’m just trying to write music that is honest, resonates with myself and others, and has the kind of melodies and production that I like to hear as a listener. With that being said, the soulful, bluesy elements of my music aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. I want to capture a more modern sound moving forward but my roots are deep and I don’t want to lose who I am on this journey. When it comes to crafting songs, if I can make someone sing and dance, or even cry, then I’ve done my job as an artist. That’s why we’re here. Ultimately, I just want to make a positive difference in the world with my art and be the best person that I can be in the process. The music I’m writing now has me really excited for the future and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
