Dane Page
Dane Page
Dane Page was born and raised in Mooresville, North Carolina, just north of Charlotte. He got his first guitar in 7th grade in hopes of becoming Jimmy Page, but after picking up an acoustic guitar in high school his interests shifted. He started listening to folk music and built an appreciation for songwriters. This appreciation continued to build as he went to college at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina where he was surrounded by bluegrass and folk music on a daily basis. He began songwriting in the summer of 2013 and hasn't stopped since. His influences range from Josh Ritter to Hank Williams, to Justin Townes Earle, to Paul Simon, to Gregory Alan Isakov. Dane graduated in 2015 and moved back to the Charlotte area where he continues to write and play music throughout North Carolina and bordering states. He combined his love for Folk, Rock, and Blues into powerful, yet smooth songs that make up his debut EP, "City to City".
Chip McGee
Chip McGee
Chip McGee was born in Weddington, North Carolina, in the then rural outskirts of Charlotte. His family line can be traced back into the mountains of Boone and from that he has had a deep reverence for Appalachian Folk ever since he was young. Being raised on a steady diet of Hymns, Otis Redding, and Bob Dylan led him to want to make music like all of them. To have music that would not only make you reflect but also make you feel. As an avid reader, Chip regularly throws in references to novels, poems and classical philosophy. His other influences include James Taylor, Paul Simon, Gregory Alan Isakov and Sam Cooke. He is currently finishing up his first studio EP, which will be available in late spring.
George Banda
George Banda
George Banda was born in Arizona, where his father taught him to play guitar when he was just five years old. In the 25 years since, George has dedicated his time and resources to pursuing this passion. He attended Central Piedmont Community College and Queens University, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with Honors and was awarded degrees in music theory and guitar performance. In addition to devoting time to his studies, George has also released his own music. He has produced two albums, one of which was an independent EP (2016) and the other a collaboration with local Charlotte artists (2017). While he considers The Evening Muse his musical home, he has played on multiples stages in Charlotte and the surrounding region. When not performing locally, George makes a priority to give back to the community. He has worked with multiple Charlotte organizations, including the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Dream Center, where he serves as the Creative Arts Director; and the School of Rock, where he teaches guitar, music theory, and provides any additional resources required for the musical education of the students the organization serves. In addition, he also provides private lessons. George enjoys expressing himself through both his writing and his musical compositions. His writing draws on themes of prior hardship and love, while his musical compositions have been performed by members of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and members of the Queens University Music Department. He hopes to exert a positive influence on the world through his passion for music and works every day to achieve this goal through his commitment to personal growth, community involvement, and artistic expression. In his spare time, George enjoys MMA training, boxing, and riding his yellow motorcycle named Pikachu. He also hates cucumbers. A lot.
