Saw Black
Saw Black
Saw Black reaches higher with Water Tower, a fitting follow up to his basement gem Azalea Days. Water Tower expands on the self-reflective nature of Azalea Days but brings a bigger band and a higher production value to the table. With 14 songs this collage of sounds and short pop-structured songs chronicles Saw's year of touring, songwriting and learning how to love again.
Recorded between 3 separate studios with 3 different line-ups Water Tower comes together as an American record about writing records and music. What does it mean to be a person who plays guitar and sings songs about life and love? Saw confronts these questions as a common thread on his second effort. An art handler by trade, Saw Black is also producer and co-owner of Crystal Pistol Records. He began playing music when his grandfather, a jazz piano player, gave him an electric guitar at the age of 11. Now 29 and having taken on every role within the recording process he presses onward and upward. Water Tower is out via WarHen Records in collaboration with Crystal Pistol Records.
Lord Nelson
Lord Nelson
Lord Nelson is two brothers, one greasy trombone, backbone bass, pocket drums, dirty south guitar and a hell of a lot of fun. The band was formed in 2012 by brothers, Kai and Bram Crowe-Getty. With the addition of Henry Jones on trombone and keys, this collection of Virginia boys presents original roots rock compositions about the people and places they grew up around. Lord Nelson's sound varies from slow burning, harmony laced anthems, to back beat pulsing floor stompers.

The release of their debut album, The County, highlighted a breakout year in 2015 for Lord Nelson. They also received hometown validation by winning the 2015 Rockn' to Lockn' Charlottesville battle of the bands and subsequently performing on the main stage at Lockn' Festival. In the spring of 2017, the band is hitting the studio to record their sophomore record with Rockfish Music. After 100+ shows in 2016, this year is shaping up to be even better. New songs are emerging, new instruments coming into the mix, and new pins are dropping on the map. An ambitious young group with a powerful live show, there is a kinetic whirlwind when these guys hit the stage and it is certainly one that you want to be swept up in.
Chamomile & Whiskey
Chamomile & Whiskey
Chamomile and Whiskey is intoxicating. The hot young group has taken whiskey soaked americana and blended it perfectly with irish , old-time, and gypsy stylings. Since releasing their debut full-length album "Wandering Boots" (County Wide Records) they have been tearing up and down the east coast playing powerful original songs with a punk rock ferocity. Recently they have shared the stage with The Infamous Stringdusters, Railroad Earth, J Roddy Walston and the Business, and The Steep Canyon Rangers. Eclectic and energetic songs full of thoughtful and poignant lyricism have helped to grow their fan base quickly. Revered for their live performance, a Chamomile and Whiskey show is a rowdy affair of boot stompin' and partner swingin'... best served with a shot of whiskey.
