Scowl Brow
Scowl Brow
The story of Scowl Brow begins in 2010 with singer/songwriter Robby Hale. His brief time in Sarasota, Florida was coming to a close so he went with what he knows best: Leaving shit behind, packing up his truck and hitting the road. Robby spent three months traveling, living in his truck and performing anywhere he could to put gas in the tank and keep on moving. After a couple shows in Atlanta he decided to hit the highway again. Four hours later he landed in Charlotte, NC.

Robby formed a musical alliance with North Carolina veteran musician Joshua Taddeo and recruited him on drums. Scowl Brow was born. The band quickly released a 6-song demo, a 12-song full length and gained a cult following in Charlotte, NC. After dealing with lineup changes with multiple bassists, Scowl Brow recruited Justin Driscoll. Another veteran North Carolina musician that would officially fill the role of bassist. With a three-piece lineup solidified, Scowl Brow pushed onwards independently releasing the Born Again EP in 2014 and hitting the road to continue growing their following throughout the southeastern United States.

In 2016 the band caught the attention of North Carolina based record label Refresh Records. Scowl Brow and Refresh created an alliance that would ultimately breathe new life into that 12-song full length album originally released back in 2011. Remixed by producer/engineer Mike Pepe and remastered by engineer Dave Harris the Self Titled LP was given new life with better sound and a proper vinyl, CD and digital release.

Shortly after the Self Titled LP reissue Scowl Brow made a surprise announcement of the addition of a second guitarist. Rick Contes, another North Carolina veteran musician, was recruited as Scowl Brow's second guitar player to fill their sound and officially solidify their lineup.
Old Heavy Hands
Old Heavy Hands
They say appearances are everything, but in the case of North Carolina's tattooing troubadours, Old Heavy Hands, appearance is a livelihood. The unassuming trio comprised of Nate Hall, Larry Wayne and David Self are crafting some of the finest southern music. Old Heavy Hands lives just as comfortably on the record shelf next to Willie Nelson or Neil Young as it does between Lucero and Wilco.
But You Can Call Me John
But You Can Call Me John
BUT YOU CAN CALL ME JOHN is a one man folk punk band created by John Tomasevich. He wrote, recorded and mixed his first record, "mediocrity von repetition!" in his Raleigh, North Carolina apartment over the closing months of 2015. The record combines the angst of his punk rock heroes Against Me! with the folk, heartland rock sound of his first musical love, John Mellencamp.
