Kurtzweil is a Raleigh, NC based 4-piece, playing in between the genres of indie and folk rock.
Kurtzweil started as singer-songwriter Katie Cooper (then Katie Kurtzweil), playing solo shows in various bars and clubs around Europe. After moving state-side, she and Adam Cooper began co-songwriting and performing in various venues around Raleigh as an acoustic duo. In April 2013, they flew out to LA to record their self-titled EP with Josh Igloo Monroy and Eric Denniston. The EP was released in February 2014, and is gaining in popularity.
In May of 2013, Matt Smith (Lead Guitar) and Gregg Dodson (Drums), both coming from solid rock backgrounds, joined the band. The four of them together produce a fun blend of dance, southern, story, pop, and rock. Kurtzweil is currently playing re-worked versions of the songs from the EP, and is working on new material with hopes to record a full-length in late 2014.
Bears in the City
Bears In The City is an indie trio from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. This memorable act mixes soulful vocals with driving beats reminiscent of Jack White mixed with the Shins. Bears In The City consists of Nick White on guitar and lead vocals, Jeff Hymes on bass and Jake Waits on drums.
Garlic City is an uprising indie rock band from Charlotte, NC. They have played locally across NC for over a year and have just released their new demo featuring two of their most popular songs, "6807" and "Centaur, Centaur and It's Freezing" in early November of 2013. They are a very tight quartet whose style portrays roots of shoegaze and beach music, along with hints of folk rock and math-rock which can easily be heard in their prominent guitar tones and licks. They also put an intense emphasis on their vocals using unique techniques including trance-like harmonies and an intricate vocal scheme known as, "hocketing" inspired by musicians from past eras. Garlic City is definitely a new uprising sound that beautifully blends various music styles into something that appeals to a very broad audience of listeners.
