Asheville Sessions: Even The Animals

Even the Animals

Even the Animals blends dusky Americana with softly gritty indie rock, songs in soft focus, close to the microphone and transcending the standard take on contemporary and traditional folk. The songs are lyrically driven with shared harmonies creating a bittersweet atmosphere that is both wistful and cacophonous. The trio is led by Jeff Markham, and released an album in 2014 titled "The Lonesome Sea", which was recorded at Solomon Mines Studio in Fletcher.

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.
