JUPITER COYOTE

Matthew B Mayes is the founder, principal songwriter, lead singer, Guitar and Guijo player for Jupiter Coyote. He has been playing music professionally for 30 years and has recorded 18 albums with Jupiter Coyote, The Raptor Trail, and his solo projects. He has played thousands of shows, toured everywhere, and sold a truck load of albums, streams and downloads. His songwriting has been compared to Robert Hunter and Bob Dylan and he pulls from a wide range of experiences and millions of miles of travel. His songs cover a lot ground, stylistically and lyrically. Some are introspective and soul searching, some are wry and cynical. Many of his songs are autobiographical stories about his life, as seen through the eyes of a working musician who has spent thousands of hours on the road. He is a true musical treasure that serious music lovers outside the mundane pop culture should discover.

Matt is a genre bending musician, a prolific writer, and an accomplished player. He even invented the Guijo, a half Stratacaster, half banjo instrument. He is best known in the southeastern, US, where Jupiter Coyote did and still does have a substantial following. Jupiter Coyote has been labeled “mountain rock,” which has been defined as a multi colored blend of good ole southern boogie and country rock, with a nice dose of bluegrass infused, grooving funk. Think of a southern fried Phish with better song writing.

Matt has also released 4 albums with The Raptor Trail and JC members John Meyer and Gene Bass. A melodic prog band, a richly layered and sophisticated form of progressive rock music with very intelligent lyrical content. Imagine if the Allman Brothers and Rush were in a jam session, and Pink Floyd had a Guijo player. Do yourself a favor and listen to some of it. Matthew is currently touring with Jupiter Coyote and performing solo listening room shows and house shows all over the US. - Nic Wickman

BIG STONER CREEK

Big Stoner Creek got their start in Charleston, SC in the early '90s when they came crawling out of Cumberland's Bar and Grill early one morning. As they wiped away the grime of smoke and beers they realized they were now a band. Always driven to play fast and hard and never back off of anything, especially another round, the music they make can best be described as Post Modern Industrial Appalachian Trailer Park Music. Big Stoner blends styles from every corner of this country into something that is somehow unique and familiar in the same moment. While they are as comfortable with a John Prine cover as they are with a Grateful Dead jam, it is their original music that sets them apart. The songs can be insightful and introspective, cutting and acerbic, poignant and hilarious, sometimes in the same song. "That sh!t ain't easy", says frontman George Fox.

Big Stoner Creek is comprised of long time friends and musical brothers Jamie Crisp, Jesse Prichard and George Fox. They are joined by Cre Moore on drums, new to the band but a perfect fit. 'Like a long lost 2nd cousin' teases Crisp. After thousands of shows together the band creates an atmosphere of hospitality and homecoming, interacting with and engaging the audience to laugh and smile, and sing and dance.

DANIELLE HOWLE

True connection can only come about through pure, honest expression. It comes from knowing how to find a truth within and having the courage to unabashedly share it. As an artist-poet, Danielle Howle is a natural storyteller through song, and she makes the biggest impact by sharing simple truths. Her music comes from a place of self-awareness and is on a perpetual journey of self-discovery. She balances powerful style with conversational lyrics, sharing her honest experience of life.

Known for captivating audiences with her stunning vocal ability, contagious energy, and incredible songwriting skills, Danielle’s music ranges from country swamp blues to jazz to Americana. The South-Carolinian song belle has been compared to Flannery O'Connor, Patsy Cline, and Nina Simone. Reviewed 7 times in The New York Times, calling her “an extraordinary mind, a southern storyteller with a gorgeous sense of melody that should be pouring out of stereos everywhere.”

An effortless and deeply compelling performer, Danielle’s command of music is astounding; her intelligent writing deftly scales anything from ballads to rap to heavy soul. She combines introspective lyrics galvanizing mass appeal. Her sound contains definite influences from jazz, country, southern rock with a jam band danceability at live shows. As a self-taught musician, Danielle defies traditional structures, intuitively creating music that shines with her own idiosyncratic style.

Danielle has demonstrated prowess at every turn of her career, from her early band days to the eclectic acoustic and electronic detours she’s taken since; with a career spanning twenty years, she’s covered a lot of ground. Beyond her life as a singer-songwriter, she’s turned her hand to successful production, sound track collaborations with film makers, and a variety of commercial work. Danielle has an incredibly diverse range, the only constant perhaps being the beloved guitar she shares her stages with.

Danielle has opened for legendary musicians such as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Sam Bush, The Avett Brothers, and Fugazi. She’s headlined countless shows and festivals, twice played at the New York City Music Hall, opening for the Indigo Girls, and has sold out rooms across the country, followed always by her ardent fan base. Well acquainted with being on the road, Danielle has toured in the US and abroad. She’s played at Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair, and has toured with Elliott Smith and Ani DiFranco, with Ani having described her as “a melodically nimble being.”

Danielle has rolled into 2017 with guns blazing, having most recently been on tour across the country with the Indigo Girls, supporting her new album recorded with her five-piece band. Four of Danielle’s numerous albums have been released on Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls’ indie label Daemon Records, with other releases on Simple Machines, Kill Rock Stars, and Valley Entertainment. Danielle’s latest EP, Pot of Water, is a collection of sonic experiments, pairing a number of different producers, studios, and techniques, including a track mixed by Grammy award-winning producer Malcolm Burn.

Considered by many to be South Carolina's best kept musical secret, Danielle Howle is a punk rock girl with the voice of a honky-tonk angel. Opening for such diverse acts as Bob Dylan, Ani Difranco, Fugazi, and Indigo Girls, she has garnered worldwide acclaim while somehow remaining under the radar of mainstream America. Now is the time for South Carolina to share it's secret with the rest of America.
