tellicoband

Tellico is the most recent product of Asheville NC's thriving roots music scene, its members well schooled in bluegrass but with an unbridled organic Appalachiacana sound, and they are excited to be debuting an album in 2015. Tellico features the singing and songwriting of Anya Hinkle (guitar, fiddle, vocals) and Stig Stiglets (bass, vocals) with Aaron Ballance on dobro, as well as Jed Willis on mandolin and clawhammer banjo.

Asheville Sessions: The Moon and You

Asheville Sessions: The Moon and You

This weeks musical session is local band The Moon and You. Rooted in the rich music scene of Asheville, NC, Ryan Furstenberg and Melissa Hyman began playing together for fun when both were part of successful bands touring the Southeast. When those bands went their separate ways, Furstenberg and Hyman chose to join forces rather than get a job. The result of this collaboration -- between an impossibly sassy cellist from New York and a whimsical fingerstyle guitarist from Eastern North Carolina -- is hard to forget, but easy to fall for.

Asheville Sessions: Marmalakes

The Marmalakes are a three piece pop-folk-rock band hailing from Austin, Texas. Chase, Max, and Josh are three gentle souls whose music is dynamic and lyrically attentive. The music that comes from the Marmalakes is easy to listen to, played with a feverish energy that sucks you in and carries you throughout the album, leaving you wanting more as soon as the last song has played.
