Pierce Edens

As those who have seen him live can attest, Pierce Edens absorbed the songwriting, storytelling and musical styling of the surrounding Appalachian Mountains, where he spent his childhood. This history takes the form of old time, folk and bluegrass music as well as spoken words of storytellers from his North Carolina home; this has earned him the moniker of “Appalachicana.”

Over the last ten years, Edens has been drawing on those roots and blending them with the grungy rock and roll sounds that took him in his teenage years. The result is a haunting and fiery mixture that is notoriously hard to pin down. Allmusic.com classifies Edens as both “Folk-Rock” and “psychedelic-grunge,” and No Depression writer Bill Kopp says “[He] could just as easily- and accurately- be tagged with the singer/songwriter label; He’s a gritty troubadour who takes what he needs from each style, blending and bending it to suit the needs of his songs.”

Through relentless touring, independently producing 4 albums (with one on the way), one full length concert film, and sharing the stage with musical heroes such as: Jim Lauderdale, Todd Snider, Will Kimbrough, and Sturgill Simpson, Edens has garnered a dedicated following of fans across the nation. And as Fred Mills of Blurt magazine says… “Edens is the R.F.D. (Real effin’ Deal), and when he and his band have their collective back against the wall, there’s trouble in store.”

Sam Burchfield

Sam Burchfield is a southern folk / soul artist out of Atlanta, GA. Lyrical depth paired with a soulful

vocal delivery and catchy melodies drives home the message. Burchfield transports listeners into

a wide array of musical truths, commanding the stage with a joyful honesty. His latest EP,

Unarmored, digs a few layers deeper into a genre-crossing career that has only just begun. From

folk, to funk, to southern soul — Sam and his band of 'Scoundrels' capture it all. The rowdy crew

puts on a show that is electrifyingly entertaining and yet full of Burchfield's lyrical honesty and

depth.

“...Burchfield’s music is soulful. That is the perfect word for it. It doesn’t just describe his genre – it

describes the heart of the artist himself...”

-Emily McBride - VINYL MAG

After cutting his teeth in the indie-music hub of Athens, GA, Sam planted new roots in the nation’s

R&B capital of Atlanta. Sam and The Scoundrels have now made ripples in the southeast, and

continue to grow a loyal fanbase with their passion for music and camaraderie for each other.
