Chris Jamison's Ghost

Born in Texas, and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Jamison finished high school in London, England. It was in London that he first began writing and performing his own music. Chris Jamison is a songwriter with a keen sense of hook, and melody. No Depression has called his songs “sing-a-long immediate and earworm lasting”, while the Austin Chronicle has called the “prolific” young songwriter’s lyrics “contemporary poetry” even naming his Sleeping with the T.V. On EP to its Top Ten List of 2013.

In 2017, ten years since the release of his first record, Chris Jamison released his sixth studio album, Mindless Heart. Chris Jamison calls Asheville, NC home where he lives with his wife and two young sons performing with his band Chris Jamison’s Ghost.

Jocelyn & Chris Arndt

Devastatingly powerful vocals and retro-rock guitar, with lyrics that run the gamut from vulnerable to all-out venomous: siblings Jocelyn & Chris Arndt are creating a new generation of authentic album rock.

Backed by a killer band onstage, their recordings feature special guests including G. Love, Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis, Beau Sasser of Kung Fu, and legendary session players Alvin Moody, David Baron, and Ilya Toshinsky.

Their debut full-length “Edges” and follow-up live album “30,000 Miles” reached #14 and #8 respectively on the Relix Jambands Top 30, taking their first single “Shame” into the FMQB AAA Top 200.

Their sophomore full-length “Go” was released to radio April 10th. That week it was Billboard’s #5 Most Added Single to AAA Radio in the US. The album’s lead-off single “Footprints on the Moon” reached #64 on the FMQB AAA Top 100 after five weeks with airplay coast to coast.

“Go” is currently in its second consecutive month at #2 on The Jambands Top 30 Album Chart.

Together with their band, Jocelyn & Chris have logged performances across the country, including stops at The Sundance Film Festival, Mountain Jam Music Festival, SXSW, CMJ, The Viper Room and Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, Milwaukee Summerfest*, The Birchmere in Alexandria, and numerous other top venues and events. They’ve provided direct support for Vertical Horizon, Delta Rae, Little Feat, Marc Cohn, the Gin Blossoms, Rick Derringer, Denis DeYoung, Sunny Sweeney, Here Come the Mummies, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, Pat McGee Band, and Shannon LaBrie.

The King Zeros

The King Zeros is the incurably soulful blues duo of Joshua Singleton and Duane Simpson. Leaving a room full of open jaws by the end of the first song, Duane’s masterful guitar playing and Joshua’s gutteral harmonica playing and sensual, gritty, soul-drenched vocals create more sound than seems possible from just two people. The pair have been playing together in one band or another for over a decade. When life bottomed out four years ago, and looking for a music that could hold the full weight of love, sex, sin, salvation, revenge and death, Joshua returned to the gritty, emotional music of his childhood, Mississippi Delta Blues. The King Zeros is the result and the music hasn’t left audiences the same ever since.
