Infielder
Infielder
Infielder is an acoustic quartet which formed in late 2016 to work the edges of bluegrass, pop, classical, folk, and jazz. Unmoored from any true genre home, Infielder balances composition with improvisation, dissonance with harmony, playfulness with macabre. Hooks and dramatic arcs comprise their songs like a roller coaster ride you're not totally convinced will return you to the ground in one piece. But you like it.

Driskill
DRISKILL was formed in Wilmington, NC by banjo player Ethan Driskill, and guitarist JD Williamson in April of 2015 when they played their first show as a duo opening for good friend Rebekah Todd. Since then the folk rock duo has been performing and climbing their way up the Wilmington music scene. With a blend of rolling banjo lines, big electric sounds, and other folk/blues rooted instrumentation; the duo is creating their own niche in the folk rock world.

Another draw that DRISKILL plays on are the vocal abilities of both Driskill and Williamson. Instead of designating one frontman, both members alternate singing lead and harmonies thus adding more variation and contrast to their sets and songs.

Driving off of Ethan Driskill's self released 2014 EP "Summer Haze," the duo is currently working on their first full length album with hopes to release it in the early part of 2016. With honest lyrics, catchy rhythms, and defining sounds that stick in your head, Driskill's and Williamson's songwriting is sure to be a new staple in the music world.
