DANIEL ROMANO Live Wednesday, June 21st at 2pm

Jun 15, 2017

When you think of the phrase "follow your muse", you might look to Daniel Romano as a prime example of a musician who does just that. His albums have sounded significantly different from each other, as if his interests are morphing, or he's trying to find out what sound fits best for him. Like Dylan, it may or may not be either, or both... All we know is, we've liked his last two albums, and we like the variety of sounds on his new one "Modern Pressure." Romano plays the Evening Muse in Charlotte on Tuesday, and the Mothlight in West Asheville on Wednesday.

The fluid, dynamic guitar work and thoughtful songwriting of Willy Porter is definitely something any music fan should seek out. Willy also uses his music to support the fight against domestic abuse, and a group that unites kids from the Middle East and U.S.,  "Kids4Peace". He's been at the station a few times over the years, and this time he'll have with him his singing partner Carmen Nickerson.

DAVID CHILDERS
Kevin Bridges

Our favorite Mt. Holly lawyer-turned-musician has a new release that is seriously one of his best -- and we've been following him since at least 1999. On Run Skeleton Run he has a lot of help from Bob Crawford and Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers, and producer Don Dixon, in addition to his fellow regular bandmates. History and literature feature prominently through his great songs, and he'll perform live in Studio B in advance of shows in Charlotte on May 28th and June 8th, among others.
