Soul music will never go out of style. Born in the musical bastion of Charleston, SC, Gaslight Street’s regional presence has grown behind their relentless tours throughout the Southeast and beyond. These three men – compiled from among the best all-around musicians Charleston has to offer – know how to blend swagger with humility and sweat with soul. Fresh on the heels of their fourth studio album, “Two Years Gone”, the band is back in the studio again and set to give their fifth effort by the end of 2017. Featuring the unmistakably soulful lyrics and vocal duo of Campbell Brown and Whitt Algar, the band strongly stakes it’s place as worthy inheritors of the Southern soul tradition.

“Gaslight Street have crafted a signature sound that is equal parts honey and moonshine, with soul-infused swagger.”
~ Jamie Lee of Honest Tune and Hittin’ the Note magazines

It’s a boot stomp on a dusty bar floor. It’s the clang of a whiskey bottle at last call. It’s grit. It’s the sounds of the South. It’s Cranford Hollow, a blended mix of Southern Rock, Appalachian Fiddle Music and American Rock and Roll.

The Hilton Head Island quintet, comprised of vocalist and guitarist John Cranford, bass man Phillip Sirmans, drummer Randy Rockalotta, fiddler and vocalist Eric Reid and newest member guitarist Yannie Renencke, have won over thousands of loyal fans with what they call Lowcountry Stomp, a sound that is at once eclectic but uniquely their own. Elements of Blues, Old-Time Country, and Southern Psychedelic Rock come together with ancient mountain melodies in an energetic, engaging musical root bag sprinkled with some Sea Island hoodoo. Since 2011 Cranford Hollow has been playing upwards of 200 shows a year, steadily expanding from the South Carolina Lowcountry to places far afield including multiple western tours. The band’s most recent Swampfire records release “Color/Sound/Renew/Revive” has the band poised to break nationally in 2017 as they tour to support.

The Aquaducks have been making waves in and around Music City as a high octane funk and soul band with a live energy that is rarely matched. The Ducks’ first two singles “Nightlife” and “Bill’s Toupée” immediately caught the attention of local radio station Lighting 100, and have continued to receive regular air play. Described by Brooklyn, NY blog Pancakes and Whiskey as “Dripping with enough funk to fill several swimming pools,” The Aquaducks have created a new sound with influences ranging from Earth Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder to Lettuce and James Brown.

The Fall of 2016 has seen The Aquaducks’ song “What’s Goodington” featured the movie trailer for “Baked in Brooklyn” as well as the release of their debut full length live album “Live at the Beast.” Fans new and old are now able to experience the high energy show that has critics calling them “probably one of the best duck-themed funk bands of all time.” In the meantime, if The Aquaducks are playing in your town, put on some dancing shoes and go see one of the best live bands that Nashville has to offer.

0 Cranford Hollow “Color/Sound/Renew/Revive” review – No Depression

Cranford Hollow – Color/Sound/Renew/Revive
by jchillen75
May 17, 2017

http://nodepression.com/album-review/cranford-hollows-latest-album

Cranford Hollow is one of those bands who are uniquely American in every way. The band originally began life in 2011 as a tradition-minded quartet who revamped classic country and bluegrass sounds into a vibrant modern context, but the band gradually shifted direction over the course of five albums and innumerable live appearances into something much more uniquely their own. Perhaps it was the addition of lead guitarist Yannie Revnecke that propelled them from more retro minded fare towards a broad-based sound that never forsakes the band’s roots. It is, however, unlikely that alone. Instead, Cranford Hollow’s metamorphosis from their aforementioned beginnings into what they are on the latest album Color/Sound/Renew/Revive is the probable result of a band simply developing over time, exploring new textures, and challenging themselves with distinctly different fare than they have on preceding works. The eight songs on Color/Sound/Renew/Revive work because they are well-written, but even well written songs fall flat thanks to the lack of commitment from the performers involved. There’s no lack of commitment here. Cranford Hollow means it.

The languid tempo of “Songfield” should never be mistaken for a lack of urgency. There’s a subtle undercurrent of various emotions lending this song impetus – much of the electric guitar work and underlying acoustic guitar playing seems tense, crackling with unnamed longing. The band’s chief vocalist and songwriter, John Cranford, delivers an engaging performance full of grit and guile. It’s also infused with a sharp poetic edge thanks to his talents as a wordsmith – moreover, it’s a disciplined talent and there’s not a single extraneous word used to make the song’s point. “Long Shadows” doesn’t ramp up the tempo in a noticeable way, but Cranford Hollow show off their penchant for weaving a variety of tempos together into a coherent whole. Eric Reid’s fiddle playing is one of the driving forces behind this track and the band keys much of their focus based on what he’s doing. The guitar work in this song might be mistaken for ornamental, but it’s much more than that. Cranford Hollow isn’t the sort of band who layer tracks with unnecessary parts and the six string songs added here fuel the song with surfeit of color.

“Bury It Down” foregoes the band’s electric edge, for the most part, in favor an acoustic approach thankfully maintaining the same musical intensity. There’s some steel guitar creeping into the track during its second half and fills the arrangement with just the ghostly echoes required by a song so titled. The band’s vocal harmonies are another key component of their success. “And Your, Brutis” opens with some surprising, nearly prog rock, keyboard and synth explorations before settling into a highly individualistic groove. Lead guitarist Yannie Revnecke stands out here with his unique balancing act between guitar heroics and artful restraint. Some of the band’s wont for risk taking comes out on the album’s penultimate cut “Dark Turns” and the rare hybridization of traditional music with a very modern point of view emerges more strongly from this instrumental than any other on the album thus far. Color/Sound/Renew/Revive represents a quantum leap forward for the band’s songwriting and presentation, but it is also a mightily entertaining work and deeply rewarding.

Leaving a trail of burned up bars and sweat soaked guitars since 2009, the Dyrty Byrds have shown no mercy in their pursuit of original guitar driven rock and roll. Tori Pater, Eric Martinez, Mike “Spanky” McCluer, and Andrew Clapp are a four-piece rock band from Denver, CO that would fit as easily into the 1970’s classic/southern rock scene as they do in modern day American music.

Playing on their love of songwriting and rock & roll, Tori Pater (Polytoxic) and Eric Martinez (Bloodkin) have been playing music together since 2004 and have eased into a prolific songwriting partnership which is deeply solidified on the new Dyrty Byrds release Failure is Feedback, due out March 18, 2016. The vast majority of the new songs were born and flushed out in Tori’s basement with just he and Eric and a couple of acoustic guitars.

Seeing a few different formations after their debut, Dyrty Byrds have worn the tried and true rock & roll recipe of two guitars, bass, and drums as a badge of honor for the better part of their existence. Mike “Spanky” McCluer (Larry) and Andrew Clapp (Forever In Blue Jeans) on Bass and drums (respectively) bring a “freight train through the Rockies” type sound to the band that only Spanky and Andy can produce.

Failure Is Feedback is the Dyrty Byrds’ third release and second album done with Chad “Chadzilla” Johnson at 25 BPM Studios in Denver, CO. Failure touches on outlaw country, a little punk rock, and funk with steady doses of rock & roll through out the record. It takes you to a place where guitars rule, truth is paramount, and the bar is always open.

Hailing from the Bluegrass with a sound as unique and smooth as the regions’ beloved bourbon, C2 & The Brothers Reed’s authenticity shines in their studio debut Weigh Station Tour. After the independent release of their first EP “Hot Mess”, along with an extensive tour schedule (250+ shows in 2014-15) traveling mainly in the southern part of the country, they took to the studio less than a year later to cut their new record Weigh Station Tour. Split into sides, ‘Exit A’ ‘Exit B’, Weigh Station Tour explores gritty rock and roll while referencing 60’s and 70’s era soul music, embracing a style that is nearly lost but deeply needed in the surge of modern sound and technology. The band – singer/bassist Cameron Clark, guitarist Kelly Reed, drummer Kody Reed, and keyboardist James Weishar – hide behind nothing on their records, with a ‘realness’ that has been constantly attributed to their live performance.

Since forming in 2013, C2 & The Brothers Reed have made some notable appearances across the board with acts such as Stone Temple Pilots’ Scott Weiland, Moon Taxi, Eddie Money, Warrant, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, 23 String Band and jam bands The Werks and Dopapod. “Weigh Station Tour: Exit A” was released in January 2015 and the followup “Exit B” released summer of 2016.

0 Cranford Hollow “Color/Sound/Renew/Revive” review – Columbia SC Free Press

CRANFORD HOLLOW

Columbia, SC Free Press review – 2/1/2017

 Cranford Hollow

Cranford Hollow

Color/Sound/Renew/Revive

Find It: cranfordhollow.bandcamp.com

Over its four previous studio albums, the Hilton Head quintet Cranford Hollow refined an all-smiles blend of country twang and acoustic-electric Southern rock, accented by singer/guitarist John Cranford’s gravelly vocals and the mournful fiddle of Jeff Reid. Sounding like some kind of Uncle Tupelo/Drive-By Truckers combo, the band seemed content to continue mining that roots-rock niche. At least until now.

Color/Sound/Renew/Revive is a telling title for an album that sounds like nothing these guys have done. The raw, loose rock ‘n’ roll feel is gone, replaced by infinitely more polished, atmospheric production and more keyboards than the outfit has ever used. On the opening “Songfield,” the rhythm section fashions a tight, slow-rolling pocket, and Reid’s fiddle seems to echo endlessly into the distance. Cranford’s vocals are less ragged, and his delivery is more melodic and focused. The songs in general are longer and more complex, with several moving past six minutes and into jam-band territory.

Rather than simply demoing the songs before heading into the studio as the act normally does, John Cranford made detailed pre-recordings of the songs with a couple of band members, with many of the instrumental arrangements already firmly in place, lending new precision to the group’s work.

It’s certainly a different direction, and it’s not hard to imagine this new keyboards-and-jams version of Cranford Hollow taking aback longtime fans. But the execution is so well-done, and the production (by Cranford and Preston Havill) and mixing (by Howard Willing) are so rich and detailed that it’s hard not to be seduced.

It might not translate so easily live — indeed, Cranford has had to switch almost entirely from guitar to keyboards onstage, and the band has added another guitarist, Yannie Reynecke — but the recorded results are tuneful, expertly played and polished without zapping the group’s energy. — Vincent Harris
