A natural soul singer and blues musician, Drew Foust’s music sounds like it’s made between the bleary hours of a rock bar’s last call and a southern preacher’s early morning prayer. Hand made, self-made and arranged in dramatic structure, the music is lyrical and rhythm driven, always pushing a feeling forward. His latest release, “Good Thing,” is inspired by the Memphis soul music from the 60’s and 70’s.
SunQueen Kelcey has two things at the center of her music: body positivity and radical self love. These are more than ingredients to her lyrics, they are her soul; and she has such a strong calling to these tenets that watching her at the mic is more than a concert. Her musical style is a genre-bending collage of hip-hop, soul, rock, and contemporary R&B, call it soul-rock. She delivers an energetic and passionate performance complete with her live band The Soular Flares. Specializing in blending her original music with Top Billboard Hit covers, she is the center of a universal sound that aims to unite her listeners over a shared experience. Grab you a cup of Greensboro’s finest. We’re the funk, the skunk and the junk. Those who know know Royal fucking Jelly goes all night long. We are a liberated group of libertines liberating libido’s wherever we go. You need it we got it, do what you wanna do, be who you wanna be, if it’s all good by you it’s all good by me. Don’t mind our freak flag as it flies. See you at a show.
Duck started in 2016 as 5 great friends in Raleigh, NC enjoyed weekend jam sessions together. Inevitably those sessions transferred into writing music and playing house parties. As the word spread about this new local band playing funky, soulful, bluesy tunes, Duck began booking gigs at venues around North Carolina and sharing their passion for making crowds boogie to their upbeat funky sound. In 2021, with the addition of Donnie Tyree on vocals, Duck has found their groove both performing and writing originals with a solid assembly of talent: Donnie Tyree on vocals, Mike Swartz on guitar, Chuck Rhew on keys, Chris Holloway on bass and Fred Dees on drums and electric washboard. All band members participate in writing music and lyrics. Their most recent EP, MOVES, recorded in Raleigh, NC fall of 2022 can be found on all streaming services.
Maia’s music is a result of a free and open-hearted devotion to the search for truth. Her songs are raw, heartfelt, moving, and catchy. Maia transports you worlds away—the trees of the blue ridge, the Dead Sea, breaking bread with the ancestors—while simultaneously giving the sense of sitting around the campfire singing familiar songs with good friends.

This powerhouse vocalist brings a blend of old school soul and new school americana. Originally from the tiny crossroads of Benson, NC, these days when Todd is asked where she is based, she often answers “my van”. Whether solo or full band, one is sure to leave the musical space feeling whiplashed from the raw emotion and human experience that Todd brings to each and every performance.
