Beau James is a singer-songwriter based in Greensboro, North Carolina. With a distinctively soulful and relatable voice, Beau has been capturing the attention of audiences from LA to Spain for the past decade. He has landed songs on major TV shows (Shameless, Nashville) and films (Sony’s “Bad Country”), and can even be found in a quick scene beside Billy Ray Cyrus in his show, “Still The King.” But  James hasn’t stopped there.  He’s released two albums (“Indigo Road” with Awake Studios and “Landmarks” with Randm Records) and has been steadily releasing singles as his solo act and as his band Chuck Mountain.  Beau can also be found working with Our State Magazine and Songfinch when he’s not out playing shows and festivals around North Carolina. “Relating to listeners is what drives James as an artist. A modern troubadour, his dream come true is a life of wandering, of trading notes on life’s struggles and successes through stories that are just as real to him as they are to his audience. “Humans deserve to be in contact with each other,” James says simply. “I make music that I relate to, and hopefully people will relate to it, too.” —Meghan Roos, popmatters.com 2015

Born and raised in Reidsville North Carolina, Seth Williams blends classic rock with country and blues, adding his own kick of attitude to covers and originals alike. From the soles of his cowboy boots to his easy smile, Seth embodies the music he makes. You can just hear it. He was born in the age of compact discs, but his soul is from era of eight-tracks, velvet-curtained Chevy vans with airbrushed sunsets on the side. Seth has released two solo LPs: “Black Vinyl” (2016) and “Burn” (2017) both recorded at The Sound Lab Studio in Greensboro, North Carolina with Tom Rowan. Seth is currently working on Whiskey Foxtrot’s debut album, a band he co-founded in 2018.

Born and raised in North Carolina, Sam Foster‘s musical roots are steeped in the country and rock music on which he was raised. From a young age, he was influenced by the country, rock ‘n roll, bluegrass, and other “roots” music his parents and peers played. From the likes of Dwight Yoakam and Bruce Springsteen, to Bill Monroe and beyond, all of these artists had a lasting impact. Sam released his sophomore LP, “Hardened Hearts” (produced by Doug Davis, Flytrap Music Production) in 2018, and is hard at work as a member of the Americana/Alt-Country band, Whiskey Foxtrot.
