About this event

Seth Walker

Seth Walker is often cited as one of the most prolific contemporary Americana artists on the scene today. He’s a multi-dimensional talent who combines a gift for melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice with a true blue knack for getting around on the guitar. His most recent studio album, Are You Open, produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers, and a string of singles, including “We Got This,” “Spirits Moving” and a cover of Van Morrison’s classic “Warm Love” further build upon this reputation.

Most recently, Walker added published author to his oeuvre with his first memoir, ‘Your Van Is On Fire.’ A riotous and charming melange of a touring musician’s life, the book is comprised of many short essays, poems and paintings he'd accumulated over a near 30-year career. Written during the 2020 lockdown, Walker offers a first hand account of an artist in perpetual motion who’s dedicated his life to chasing the muse wherever it may lead.

Growing up on a commune in rural North Carolina, the son of classically trained musicians, Seth Walker played cello long before discovering the guitar in his 20s. When his introduction to the blues came via his Uncle Landon Walker, who was both a musician and disc jockey, his fate was forever sealed. Instantaneously, Seth was looking to artists like T-Bone Walker, Snooks Eaglin, and B.B. King as a wellspring of endless inspiration. The rest is history. He's released ten albums, broken into the Top 20 of the Americana Radio Charts, reached No. 2 on the Billboard Blues Album Chart and received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, No Depression and Relix, among others.

In addition to extensive recording and songwriting pursuits, Seth is consistently touring and performing at venues and festivals around the world. Along with headline shows, he's been invited to open for The Mavericks, The Wood Brothers, Raul Malo, Paul Thorn and Ruthie Foster, among others.

Seth Walker is currently based in Asheville, NC after previously residing in Austin, New Orleans and Nashville. He’s used those experiences wisely, soaking up the sounds and absorbing the musical lineage of these varied places. With a bluesman’s respect for roots and tradition, coupled with an appreciation for—and successful melding of—contemporary songwriting, Seth sublimely incorporates a range of styles with warmth and grace. Perhaps Country Standard Time said it best: “If you subscribe to the Big Tent theory of Americana, then Seth Walker –with his blend of blues, gospel, pop, R&B, rock, and a dash country—just might be your poster boy.”

Sam Foster

Sam Foster is a road dog. He lives and breathes the idea that repetition and regularity are the chisels to refine his craft. Hailing from Winston-Salem, Foster emerged on the North Carolina music scene in 2014 as a solo artist and he’s brought his brand of tenacity to eager crowds all over the Southeastern United States ever since.

Foster is a little bit country, a whole lotta rock and roll. While drawing much inspiration from legends of country music past and present, Foster’s sound can be more broadly described as rock. His roots run deep into the vein of American music, and he’s continually inspired by folk, soul, Southern rock, and rhythm and blues.

Foster’s debut album Rough Edges (The First Cuts) was released in 2015. Rough Edges was just what it sounds like -- a collection of gritty, raw home recordings cut in the living room of James Vincent Carroll. An embodiment of Foster’s DIY spirit, Foster and Carroll played all instruments on Foster’s original compositions. To follow up, Foster began working with producer and engineer Doug Davis at Flytrap Music Productions. The result was 2018’s Hardened Hearts, a conscientious nod to the gamut of Americana music.

In 2017, Foster co-founded Whiskey Foxtrot with singer-songwriter Seth Williams. After filling out their numbers, the five-piece Whiskey Foxtrot dove headfirst into touring, playing hundreds of shows across the South over four years. Whiskey Foxtrot established a following on local, regional, and global levels, and shared the stage with The Steel Woods, Tennessee Jet, Ward Davis, The Way Down Wanderers, John Howie Jr. & the Rosewood Bluff, Sunny Sweeney, Caleb Caudle, and Justin Wells. Whiskey Foxtrot released their debut, Hard Lines & Headlights, in 2020. Produced and engineered by Benjy Johnson at Earthtones Recording Studio, the album is a testament to love, heartbreak, and hard work that’s characterized by driving guitars and mournful lap steel and grounded by a pounding rhythm section. Hard Lines & Headlights was well-received by fans and critics alike.

Like most people, Foster was changed by global pandemic. Spending less time on the road and more time at home writing, Foster focused on songwriting, resulting in a long list of new songs ready to showcase live and record for posterity. Whiskey Foxtrot disbanded in early 2021, and Foster finds himself once again a solo artist. As the world enters a new chapter, so too does Foster. The good news is that he’s got new stories to tell, new shows to play, and new music to debut.
