PIERCE EDENS:

As those who have seen him live can attest, Pierce Edens absorbed the songwriting, storytelling and musical styling of the surrounding Appalachian Mountains, where he spent his childhood. This history takes the form of old time, folk and bluegrass music as well as spoken words of storytellers from his North Carolina home; this has earned him the moniker of “Appalachicana.”

Over the last ten years, Edens has been drawing on those roots and blending them with the grungy rock and roll sounds that took him in his teenage years. The result is a haunting and fiery mixture that is notoriously hard to pin down. Allmusic.com classifies Edens as both “Folk-Rock” and “psychedelic-grunge,” and No Depression writer Bill Kopp says “[He] could just as easily- and accurately- be tagged with the singer/songwriter label; He’s a gritty troubadour who takes what he needs from each style, blending and bending it to suit the needs of his songs.”

Through relentless touring, independently producing 4 albums (with one on the way), one full length concert film, and sharing the stage with musical heroes such as: Jim Lauderdale, Todd Snider, Will Kimbrough, and Sturgill Simpson, Edens has garnered a dedicated following of fans across the nation. And as Fred Mills of Blurt magazine says… “Edens is the R.F.D. (Real effin’ Deal), and when he and his band have their collective back against the wall, there’s trouble in store.”

 
 
 
 
ROB BAIRD:
 
In the 2019 release of his highly anticipated fourth album, After All, Rob Baird takes you on a lyrical journey of love, loss, and growth. Recorded straight to tape in his native Tennessee, at Battletapes in East Nashville, under the watchful eye of Jeremy Ferguson (Cage The Elephant, Andrew Combs, Lucie Silvas), After All was produced by long time friend and collaborator Rick Brantley, along with Texas-based Z lynch and Austin ‘Woodrow’ Morgan. After All weaves together sounds inspired by a range of influences, from the singer-songwriter stylings of Lucinda Williams, to James McMurty’s uninhibited vocals and rock ‘n’ roll cords. Baird penned the album sitting around his kitchen table in Austin, with friends Burleson Smith, David Beck and Brian Douglas Phillips, and concedes that he needed to go back to the gritty, passionate honesty that the music from his Tennessee upbringing provided, declaring, “Thank god I got out of my own way and back to my roots.”
