THE SECRET B SIDES:
The Secret B-Sides have been slowly, but steadily gaining momentum in Asheville and it's surrounding region for over four years with progressive styles of Soul and R&B music. In spring of 2011, the B-Sides released their first, full-length, studio album, 'Flowers & Chocolate', to significant acclaim. Now, a year later, the stage is set for the upcoming release of 'Easy Magic', a five-song EP for spring of 2012! The B-Sides sound has garnered such descriptions as "solid gold baby making music", "slinky funk", and "flirtatious".

"Sirius.B is trova italiana, war song, gypsy, middle eastern, quasi-Klezmer-seculare, with strong Irish-drinking overtones and Zappa madness." -Ricardo Cobo
In the the Mountain XPress's Best of Western North Carolina, Sirius.B has been voted:
#1 Next Big Thing #1 Rock Band #1 Experimental Band #2 Indie Band #3 Live Show of 2009 (Beating Sirius.B for live Best Live Show were The Beastie Boys and Phish.)
Sirius.B brings to you the finest Absurdist Gypsy Folk Funk Punk that the world has to offer. Their "impressively irreverent, combustible, three-ring circus of sound [and] high-energy style is difficult to neatly categorize. They play foreign music as well as upbeat and serious originals, with a lyrical style ranging from the quirky to the absurd." -Mountain Xpress
Sirius.B's music is created with an eclectic mix of vocal harmonies and instruments including cello, accordion, violin, marching band & African percussion, charango, flamenco and acoustic guitar, banjo, and melodica.
"Sirius.B. carries the brewing excitement of something big in the making." -Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress
