THE FRITZ:

Infectious grooves, intoxicating guitar lines and a relentless drive of soul and passion describes one of the Southeast's newest sensations, The Fritz. Drawing inspiration from a variety of techniques and traditions, the group's vision is rooted within improvised Electronic Funk Rock. As schooled musicians, The Fritz rely on creating a canvas that is as much defined as it is colorfulleaving the audience entranced within their art.

Jamie Hendrickson's versatile guitar style and innate sense of melody first blended with Jake O'Connor's funky bass lines in 2007. From there, they met drummer Michael Tillis, who brings a strong driving energy to the ensemble. Jamar Woods' virtuosic keyboard solos and soulful vocal abilities propel the band into exciting musical journeys that are accented by his powerful stage presence. Rounding out the group is percussionist Mike Evans. His taste for world music, power funk and the occasional rap on the mic give the band a truly one-of-a-kind sound that is unmatched.

After their move to the North Carolina in 2011, the band has grown into a full time touring juggernaut that thrives in the live setting. Combining the art of improvisation with the soul of Funk, The Fritz set stages on fire with their incredible, passion filled, high energy performances.

With one independent release and many hours of studio work under their belts, The Fritz are no strangers to the studio setting. This past February, the band spent some time at Crooked Tree Studios recording their second full-length album. A release date is set for March of 2013.

In just a short time, The Fritz have been featured in RELIX magazine, performed at many popular music festivals (Bear Creek, Blackwater, AURA) and have received many accolades from a multitude of media outlets.

THE BROADCAST:

With powerful and soulful melodies, polyrhythmic grooves and an uncanny ability to connect with listeners it's no wonder The Broadcast has audiences across the country entranced. Originally formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2007, this young, six-piece soul infused rock band is known for their tight, high-energy performances that have vaulted them into the national spotlight.

After their relocation to the beautiful mountainside of Asheville,
NC, The Broadcast has grown into a full-time, nationally touring group. Their rise on the festival circuit has scored them press interest from such outlets as FlavorPill, VERVE and Cosmopolitan Magazine who described lead vocalist Caitlin Krisko's voice as "drenched in honey, and dripping with soul".

The Broadcast draws influences from the funky and soulful "Motown Sound" and the raw vocal prowess of singers such as Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin. Platinum blonde, Caitlin Krisko, whose commanding and captivating voice has been compared to the likes of Adele and Grace Potter, fronts the band with a prowess not often found in vocalists her age.

Their powerhouse performances are not only characterized by Krisko's dynamic voice but also by the interplay of the band. The trio of Michael Davis (drums), Matthew Davis (bass) and Tyler Housholder (percussion) create rich foundations of rhythm that drive the band. Guitarist Aaron Austin and keyboardist Rich Brownstein punctuate the group's sound with their soulful solo's and deep tonal textures.
