Goldie and the Screamers

Join us in High Gravity at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Sunday, December 30th from 2pm to 5pm for a free show with Goldie and the Screamers.

Goldie & The Screamers have a mission to move you; to create music that stirs your heart without neglecting your body. This Asheville based Soul/Neo Soul outfit have been quickly building a loyal following since their first public performance in the Spring of 2014.

“Goldie” is fronted by the texturally rich vocals of CaroMia Tiller, who’s performances seamlessly metamorphose song to song- at times lush and sultry and at times soul shaking and explosive. Their grooves are driven by the funky bass lines of Chandler Brewer, vintage R&B beats of Jacob Coats, smooth keyboards of CaroMia and the standout dapper guitar stylings of Jesse Lapinsky. Goldie & The Screamers tend to lean toward the seductive avenues of Soul music, but never averting from their mission to get your body moving.

With gorgeously crafted originals that call on the timeless quality of soul music past while still moving into the future, and inspired, crowd pleasing renditions of favorites like Erykah Badu’s “Tyrone” and Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind”, Goldie & The Screamers have something to hook just about everyone.

Lyrics Born

Lyrics Born relocated to the United States from his birthplace of Toyko, Japan right around the time Hip Hop was exploding on the East Coast. From the moment he heard Sugar Hill Gang’s 1980 classic “Rapper’s Delight,” the Bay Area Hip Hop luminary knew he’d found his calling. Twenty-five years later, LB has obliterated the stereotypes of what an MC is “supposed to” look like and captured the hearts of countless fans who gravitate to his distinctive voice. He’s now the only Asian-American MC to release 10 studios albums and the first to play major music festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza.

—————————————————————————

Guitarist, singer Ana Popovic is back on the road promoting her new album ‘Like It On Top’, that focuses on empowered, successful, inspiring female role models.

Recorded in Nashville, TN, and produced by four-time Grammy winner Keb’ Mo’, the blues influenced album features guest appearances from Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Robben Ford and Keb’ Mo’.

A trending theme in today’s world is women overcoming obstacles and breaking through the glass ceilings to reach the top. Like It On Top celebrates those that take initiative, develop, inspire and motivate. But it also credits the men who are motivated and enlightened enough to support women in their quest to be their best versions of themselves.

“I hope that my music inspires others to motivate ladies all over the world to be successful, energetic, empowered women on a mission, and to motivate men to give them that chance,” Popovic says. “The majority of women need to work harder than men to prove themselves or need to cope with a feeling of constant pressure to never make a mistake and be perfect. I believe that women no longer only have the right to earn a living and to take care of themselves and their families. The time has come to step it up. Becoming the outstanding leaders of tomorrow. Corner-office ladies in business, politics, and the electric guitar!”

_________________________

Noam Pikelny has emerged as the preeminent banjoist of his generation. He is a founding member of Punch Brothers and was awarded the first annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass in 2010 in addition to IBMA’s Banjo Player of the year in 2014 and 2017. Universal Favorite (Rounder Records, 2017) is the fourth record Noam Pikelny has released under his own name, but it’s truly his solo debut. His previous solo efforts—including 2014’s landmark Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe— were full-band affairs that revealed his abilities as a dynamic bandleader while reinforcing his reputation as an inventive accompanist – with both albums receiving Grammy nominations. Universal Favorite features only the man himself, playing lovely originals and covers that showcase his unique approach to the instrument and compositional flair. He recorded them live in the studio without accompaniment, coaxing a wide array of sounds and colors out of his instruments, embracing the challenges and exploring the new possibilities of the solo setting. And, for the first time in his career, Pikelny even sings. It turns out he has a striking deadpan baritone that conveys humor and melancholy in equal measure. This album, he says, is “is the most personal statement I’ve put forward. The setting couldn’t be more stark and I think it lays bare my musical core. Most importantly, it’s an incredibly honest solo album, in that there are honestly no other people on this record other than me.”
