Campfires and Constellations
Campfires and Constellations
Founded by guitarists Corey Bax and Charlie Smith in Dunn, NC, C&C has existed in its current lineup since the Spring of 2012. Ernest T picks the banjo and pedal steel, while Stevie Moon and Dangerous Dan fill in on drums and bass, respectively.
Mobley
Mobley
Founded in North Carolina by lead singer and songwriter Anthony Watkins II and later joined by bassist Tim Shelburne and drummer Sergio Trejos, Mobley settled into it's current formation during the fall of 2009. After a cross-country move and months of preparation, they're hard at work trying to prove themselves as one of Austin's most promising young bands.

The songs draw from a wealth of influences, often tied together with only as much thread as is necessary for coherence. What results is a repertoire that, by virtue of its diversity, truly transports the listener. It's a set composed of contrasting moods and moments: an anthemic blitz of guitars and wired synths; a falsetto croon slinking out over drum-bass groove straight out of '73; a music box lullaby bursting into chamber pop or keening alt-country or glitzy dance-rock. All of these sounds are complemented by a stunning video/light component and performed by musicians that command the stage with a presence that belies their youth and a vigor that proves it.
Clockwork Kids
Clockwork Kids
Clockwork Kids are an alternative rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina formed in February 2012 by lead singer/songwriter and bass guitarist Justin Ellis. Though originally intended as a temporary outlet for musical expression, the band gained popularity in the UNC- Chapel Hill community and quickly established itself as one of its premier student bands. In summer 2012, the band was rounded out with guitarist Jeff DeLuca, guitarist/ keyboardist /soundscapist Chris Petto, guitarist/ bassist Patrick Carney, and drummer Mike Carney. The band has since been busy writing material, recording demos, and recently completed their first tour around the state of North Carolina. With a sound described by the INDY Weekly magazine as "a [reverent] take on early R.E.M.", the band aims to combine the massive three-guitar approach of bands such as Radiohead and Shearwater with the more introspective lyricism of bands like Elbow and The Cure, with a decidedly 90's shoegaze-tinged flavor.



"The band's shows make it obvious that its five members are not only talented musicians, but talented showmen as well. Whether leading with a soothing acoustic guitar or a manic electric, the band's deft blend of vastly differing guitar styles is bound to put you on your feet." - Carolina BluePrint
