Stephanie's id

"This looks happy, but the music hits much deeper. Stephanie Morgan's vocals [move] delicately between The Sugarcubes and The Sundays, but always with a childlike wink and skip.... Sometimes the band evinces a sadness that lives in the world, but there is always an answer of music and joy to bring light out of every possible shadow." --Marcel Feldmar, The Big Takeover Magazine

"...a rather transcendent set ...the band was different, melodic, quirky, and just plain good.... A sleeper act
which hit the mark with an almost Bjork-like panache." --Bonnaroo Beacon

"[For breakout song of the summer] Wilco's new song 'You Never Know' is a strong contender for me, as is Stephaniesid's 'Bullet Train.'"--Dan Reed, WXPN Philadelphia

"Sharp writing!" -- David Dye, World Cafe/NPR

"The band's non-pandering brand of pop intricately, artfully textural and full of surprises."
--CityBeat, Cincinnati

"...a mesmerizing mix of songs that can be hushed and calm one moment, and then suddenly dark and explosive the next." - Robin
Hilton, NPR All Songs Considered

"Although generally referred to as an indie-pop band, their sound is actually far more complex and compelling than that genre label implies.... interesting, experimental and creatively edgy."--Steve Shanafelt, Mountain Xpress, Asheville

"The songs move from intimate to anthemic... effortlessly poetic letters...acute insights ... shimmering synth hooks and smoothly shifting melodic textures... difficult to classify but easy to love." --Wayne Robins, Billboard Magazine

"This is world-class music, period. No labels necessary." --Fred Mills, Blurt Magazine

"Fierce, siren-like intensity...voracious appetite for rhythm... a band that isn't afraid to risk being innovative to put out something truly personal." --Harp Magazine (now Blurt)

"Dig It: A Scandinavian Pop princess gets lost in the American South and is rescued by a Jazz quartet."--CityBeat, Cincinnati

"They seem to have a thing for those instruments not easily associated with the musical zeitgeist... [three of their singles] would be on the podium if this were my Olympics and I was holding a collection of medals." (2009)

"Musical touchstones include Rilo Kiley, Bjork, Cocteau Twins, Radiohead, sharing with these bands the ability to create gorgeous melodies over deceptively smart and deep musical ideas... it's rock without the guitar solos, ...with melodies....hooks, and the gratifying payoff of the cascading chorus." -- Summersounds Review by WGSM, Greensburg, PA

Stephaniesid, born in 2004, lives in Asheville, NC and makes pop music for "the darkness in you that's trying to find the light." The band possesses remarkable technical prowess, lending all the proper tools needed to create well-crafted songs and beautiful recordings. The music explores both the melancholy and triumph of human life and love, the players equally faithful stewards of large, intoxicating swells and infectious, danceable melodies. Recordings affix weepy synthesizers, vibraphone lines, guitars, thick bass notes, quirky keyboard sounds, a horn section, and coquettish, curly, tenacious female vocals. The live show is unabashed energy funneled through Iowa-birthed and Texas-raised former gymnast Stephanie Morgan (vox, guitar, synth), southerner Chuck Lichtenberger (keys/vox/bass pedals), and Maine-born Tim Haney (drums), and a collective cast of other players.

The band has chosen to live in Asheville, NC, a city widely known for its musical soul, where they have been voted "Best Rock Band" in the reputable Mountain Xpress poll 4 years in a row.

Stephaniesid has released 4 full-length albums, has had songs featured on Showtime's "Nurse Jackie", Team Ibex's "The Red Helmet", and The Weather Channel, as well as on numerous compilations. The band's music was the subject of a rock ballet in their hometown of Asheville, NC, and the band founded the indie pop festival called POPAsheville.


Common Foundation

Playing a blend of down tempo reggae, chugging Jamaican rocksteady, and upbeat ska, Common Foundation fills the air with infectious danceable rhythms and an easygoing atmosphere. Soaring vocal harmonies and a four piece horn section add distinct flair to this up and coming band.


David Zoll Trio

"It all started with oldies radio and a musical family."

David Zoll grew up on Long Island, NY with a steady diet of doo-wop, Motown and classic R and B from local oldies radio, Willie Nelson, Simon and Garfunkel, and the Everly Brothers from his parents, and Brian Setzer, the Ramones and Black Sabbath from his brother.

Originally a wind player, David, was lucky enough to grow up in a high school arts program that could rival that of some colleges, where pro-players made visits to school jazz band rehearsals, and theatre teachers brought David and other students to workshops, broadway shows, and vocal instructors.

Later on with stints in upstate NY and Florida, and a first serious study of the guitar, he was influenced by everything from the finger-style guitar of Chet Atkins, the classic dub of Lee Perry, and the complete buffoonery of Frank Zappa.

David moved to the Asheville NC area in the summer of 2006, and with the support of his family, friends, and beautiful wife, released his first self-titled EP in the spring of 2011. He is lucky enough to share the stage with some amazing friends and musicians, and can be seen playing throughout the WNC area in solo acoustic settings, and along with his group, The David Zoll Trio. You may also find him in another role he loves: as a sideman with numerous other projects including zydeco group Bayou Diesel, The Grant De Santos Band, and his harmony-laden acoustic duo with friend and fellow musician Tim Marsh.

Music has always been a first love. From the sweet fingerpicking of a steel-string acoustic, to the primal bashing of a fuzz-laden stratacaster, the need to create has always been . The need to sing and write songs has always been. As a band leader, singer, songwriter, or guitarist, David Zoll's work is well worth the price of admission. Stick around . . . .
