Maradeen
The origins of Maradeen can be traced back to the town of Athens, GA when in 2009, guitarist/singer Whit Murray, joined the already established band, Mama's Love, fronted by singer/songwriter, Thomas Galloway. The two, along with the other members, performed consistently around the country for the next 2 and a half years building a devoted fan base and recording 2 albums with renowned producers such as Tom Tapley and John Keane.
During that time, they would on occasion share the stage with a younger band from Nashville, TN named Afro. Two of the members, keyboardist Kaitlyn Connor and drummer Ben Plewes, would eventually go on to round out the lineup of Maradeen.
In December of 2011, Whit decided to depart from Mama's Love in order to further his musical education in Boston at the Berklee College of Music. Galloway continued on with Mama's Love and the two remained in contact, sharing the stage whenever circumstances permitted.
In May of 2014, Murray completed his degree at Berklee and relocated back down south to Nashville, TN. Upon arrival, he reconnected with Kaitlyn, who introduced him to bassist Sterling Miller and the 3 started jamming.
Fresh off of touring as a drum tech for Lyle Lovett, Ben Plewes was brought in to fill the void for a drummer and the four began rehearsing steadily and playing local shows around Nashville.
In October of 2014, Thomas Galloway relocated to Nashville from Athens, GA to pursue songwriting and he and Whit began collaborating again. After months of writing, the 5 piece decided to book studio time to commence in March of 2015, and have been booking shows to launch their first ever Spring Tour.
The journey for Maradeen so far has been filled with positivity and excitement and the members are thrilled to enter their next phase of performing and spreading their music!

Dalton Dash
What began as a simple duet that has quickly burst into a colossal sound flared by robust song writing, ardent vocals and sturdy musicianship. This folk quartet originally met in the mountains of Appalachia. Dalton Dash began creating songs that spoke of love, loss, and troubles that today’s young people could relate to while keeping a traditional yet tempo pushing style.Their eclectic taste has allowed them to play shows that range from bluegrass to hard hitting rock and roll sets. With guitar playing that would knock the wind out of any listener just by watching and mandolin parts that bite at the heels of any dancer, the jovial and up-beat acoustic sounds seem electrified by their very energy, even when they slow it down a notch.
