CHRIS JAMISON Live Thursday, April 20th at 11am

Apr 18, 2017

Asheville has yet another talented singer-songwriter to call its own in Texas native Chris Jamison. We were impressed with his new album Mindless Heart, and his release show is Wednesday the 26th at The Grey Eagle in Asheville, complete with his 6-piece band.

Centerpiece Jazz has been playing swing, Latin jazz, showtunes, and ballads since guitarist Joseph Hasty formed it here in Western NC in 1995. They are excited to now have New Orleans drummer Geoff Clapp joining them for a number of upcoming gigs, including Morganton on March 31st and May 5th, and Saluda on April 22nd.

BLACK ROBIN HERO Live Thursday, March 16th at 4pm

Mar 10, 2017

Two Asheville rock acts celebrate new releases on Saturday at Isis in West Asheville: Black Robin Hero and David Earl. We've got Black Robin Hero -- the union of songwriter Matt Lane and two former restaurant coworkers who realized their shared love for making music -- coming in to Studio B for their first live session here on Thursday.

PETER KARP Live Friday, March 10th at 4pm

Mar 3, 2017

From his beginnings in a NYC blues-punk band, to his collaboration with Sue Foley (including a Studio B visit a few years ago), Peter Karp has been a part of the music scene for many years now. Even taking a "break" for 10 years to raise a family and work in the film industry, he kept involved with the likes of Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Michael Brecker, & Richie Havens. He comes through the area with his band on Friday, including Mac Arnold's Restaurant in Greenville.

TIM O'BRIEN Live Wednesday, March 8th at 3pm

TIM O'BRIEN
Scott Simontacchi

Whether it's his work with Hot Rize, his sister Mollie O'Brien, his fellow songwriter Darrell Scott, or his countless projects as a producer or sideman, we sure love listening to singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Tim O'Brien. One of our favorites returns to Studio B Wednesday, before his show at the Grey Eagle in Asheville that night. He's got a brand new release, Where the River Meets the Road.
