Lost Dog Street Band
Lost Dog Street Band
Lost Dog Street Band formed in the winter of 2010 after husband-and-wife duo Benjamin Tod (guitarist/vocalist) and Ashley Mae (fiddle player) parted ways with former musical project Barefoot Surrender. Originally conceived as a duet, Benjamin and Ashley quickly dedicated themselves to carrying the tradition of the American troubadour - hopping trains and hitchhiking across country while delivering their unique brand of original songwriting and tragic storytelling.

In the summer of 2011, while performing on the streets of Nashville, Tennessee, Benjamin and Ashley met Nicholas and Shannon Ridout, two skilled musicians traveling from the Pacific Northwest. Immediately inspired by each other’s music, the two groups began writing collaboratively and soon formed the band Spit Shine. The four musicians quickly built a friendship stronger than family, and together poured their blood and sweat into the music of Spit Shine. For the next two years Lost Dog Street Band took a hiatus, until Nicholas’s tragic death in the spring of 2013.

Pushing through the sorrow at the loss of their best friend, Lost Dog Street Band was resurrected with a fervency. Now doing very little street performing, Lost Dog Street Band tours the country each year, delivering their story through song in venues nationwide. Along the way they keep Nicholas’s work alive by sharing his music at the end of every show they play. They have since added a third member, longtime friend and drummer, Ivan Doertshuk.

Drawing from years of lonely tramping, and more than one tragic loss, Lost Dog Street Band has crafted a distinct sound that is best described as ‘dark country’ that never wavers from its roots and honors the traditions of its forbearers. In the same vein as country-legend Guy Clark, Benjamin Tod weaves his melodies and lyrics together to offer listeners an unapologetically raw and authentic account of the human experience.
Dead Cat
Dead Cat
Dead Cat is an original country quartet from Charlotte, NC. Born several years ago from a rainy day and a broken heart Cat Glenn and her roomate wrote their first song “Go.” The tone was set for this band’s poignant reflection of lovesick country that was carried by Cat’s soulful voice, and melodic instrumental. After being asked to play a few shows and being well received in the Charlotte area, Cat decided to record an album. She asked friend and fantastic musician Geoff White (David Childers, Appalulcia) to accompany her and was honored and blessed when he became a full time member of the band.

Though the content is at times melancholy, Dead Cat pushes an upbeat, catchy country/bluegrass sound that keeps you tapping your feet. Dead Cat was awarded “Best Country Artist” in 2016.
