Cicada Rhythm Live Friday May 4th at 11am

Apr 26, 2018

What a beautiful new release this Atlanta-based duo of Andrea DeMarcus and Dave Kirslis has. It's called "Everywhere I Go", on New West Records. They play Knoxville Thursday, and West Asheville Friday. In between, a visit to Studio B (with or without dogs?)

Jane Kramer with Free Planet Radio & Billy Cardine
Vicki Burick

Wow, talk about a harmonic convergence! This group plays Asheville on Saturday May 5th, in a benefit for the Y.E.S. (Youth Education Scholarship) Fund, supporting access to the arts for children.

Chuck Brodsky Live Wednesday, May 2nd at 1pm

Apr 26, 2018

One of our favorite singer/songwriters, from Asheville or anywhere really, returns to Studio B, this time with songs from his new release "Them and Us". He plays the Grey Eagle in Asheville on Sunday the 6th. Play ball! And Chuck!

Chuck Lichtenberger Live Friday, March 30th at 1pm

Mar 26, 2018

Pianist, composer, and teacher Chuck Lichtenberger elevated Asheville's music scene to a higher level thanks to his 15 year run as in integral part of Stephanie's Id. He has now embarked on a solo career that threads together rock, jazz, pop, and hip-hop, and his latest material takes on the challenging topics of childhood trauma, anxiety, and mental illness -- issues he'll admit he is all too familiar with. We salute the many brave artists who are addressing these issues more openly lately, and we welcome Chuck and his band back to Studio B on Friday afternoon with Joe Kendrick.

Caroline Rose Live Thursday, March 29th at 3pm

Mar 26, 2018
Caroline Rose
Lorne Thomson/Redferns

We're not likely to get much behind an album that was "as much inspired by Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears as it was late '70s punk." But Caroline Rose's transformation from more of the folk-rock side to the alt-rock/dance-punk sound on Loner is pretty compelling. As were the rave reviews from her performance at SXSW. The result of the "new" Caroline Rose is a combination of fresh,  irreverent, and perhaps pretty well reflective of today's climate. Whether a true Loner or with her band, she'll play for us in Studio B on her way to The Mothlight in West Asheville.
