NATURAL BORN LEADERS / ARTIMUS / MICHAEL FORDE AND LITTLE WOODEN INDIAN

*****************************

Natural Born Leaders

"With a sound that floats seamlessly between rock, reggae, jazz, hip-hop [and] funk" (Live Music Daily), Natural Born Leaders aim to bring a fresh groove to America's soundscape. The Asheville, NC based quintet is comprised of charismatic frontman and lead vocalist Michael Martinez, keepers of the beat James Eddington (bass) and Kevin Murtha (drums), shredder Rex Shaffer (guitar), and the eloquent Ben Survant (saxophone).

In June of 2018, Natural Born Leaders were among a handful of top submissions for NPR Music's Tiny Desk song competition. As a result, they were recognized by Weekend Edition's Scott Simon in a nationally syndicated feature interview. While this "big break" has helped propel the group forward, it is their consistent dedication to the grind that is proving fruitful. Monthly tour runs throughout the year and a steady growth of media appearances have made Natural Born Leaders a widespread crowd-favorite. With a magnetic beat and solid rhyme, it's hard not to groove along with every song.

Following the enthusiastic reception of their debut EP, 'About Time', Natural Born Leaders are finished in the studio laying down a handful of new tunes, slated for a grande reveal in the fall of 2019.

Artimus

Artimus is an Atlanta-based gr*up consisting of Will Hollifield, Brandon Boone (Tedeschi/Trucks), Kevin Leon (St. Paul & the Broken Bones), Patrick Arthur, and Emmanuel Smith. T*gether they're stretching the creativity of electronic/jazz/funk fusion and follow in the legacy of Jojo Mayer & Nerve, Aphex Twin, Kneebody, and Donny McCaslin. Their upcoming debut LP 'B*ys Grown Tall' is a collection of songs with depth, energy, and a belief in playing in the moment. Artimus has shared the stage with groups like Progger, the Mike Dillon Band, and Lightning Orchestra.
