Live Thursday May 7th at 1pm: ORGONE

May 5, 2015

We are excited to host this big funk-soul-space disco band out of L.A. here in Studio B Thursday afternoon, before playing Asheville Thursday night and Charlotte on Saturday. They've got a bunch of catchy new tunes on their new album Beyond the Sun, featuring their new vocalist Adryon de Leon. This video gives you a taste of what to expect.

Live Friday May 8th at 3pm: DAYNA KURTZ

May 1, 2015

You notice a number of different genres influencing the music of singer/songwriter Dayna Kurtz, and her voice is nothing short of sublime. Says Paste Magazine, "Kurtz sounds at times like her musical DNA contains traces of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, not to mention the world’s great cabaret singers.” Add to that a wise comparison to Nina Simone, and you have a taste for what we have in store when Dayna returns to Studio B. She's in the area for a show at the Balsam Mountain Inn in Balsam, NC.

Live Friday May 8th at 1pm: SOL DRIVEN TRAIN

May 1, 2015

One of our favorite Charleston bands returns to Studio B to fill up the airwaves with their fun, infectious grooves. Their latest release, appropriately titled "Dance", covers a whole lot of genres, just like WNCW. They are (left to right) Matt Thompson on Bass and vocals; Wes Powers on drums; Russell Clarke on saxophones and vocals; Joel Timmons on guitar and vocals; Ward Buckheister on guitar, trombone, and vocals; Ross Bogan on keys and vocals.
