Ashleigh Chevalier Band
Ashleigh Chevalier fuses her own brand of roots rock and funky jam blues with genre bending powerhouse vocals and a fiery, unforgettable stage performance. Supported by an all-star band, featuring the rhythm section of members of Keller Williams More Than a Little funk group: Toby Fairchild on drums and EJ Shaw on bass, and Tom Beaulieu on guitar, Chevalier’s band never ceases to amaze audiences from concerts, to big stages, to festivals.

Chevalier's first album, From the Soles, was produced by Grammy Winner Jon Carroll, and received a nomination for "Contemporary Folk Album of the Year" in Washington D.C.'s Washington Area Music Awards. With special guests like Jon Carroll (Starland Vocal Band, Mary Chapin Carpenter), Hunter Wolfe (Born Crooked), and international saxophonist Ron Holloway (Warren Haynes, Susan Tedeschi, Dizzie Gillespie), the album pleases all who hear it.

Her highly anticipated album Burnin’ Down to be released March 2017 tackles the flames of love and life in flux, from the micro to the macro, the individual to global schema.
Andrew Scotchie & The River Rats
Delivered as if on a platter made of rust and steel, Scotchie’s music borrows from the grit of the Rolling Stones. He and The River Rats bind it with elements of old school soul and Lightnin’ Hopkins blues into a rhythm that rocks with purity."
– Tom Netherland - Bristol, TN Herald

Andrew Scotchie & the River Rats formed in Asheville NC as a street busking project in late 2011. Revered for their high energy live shows, dynamic musicianship & Scotchie's larger than life stage presence, the band has continued to craft their hard driving style of rock & blues and are dedicated to building their musical family everywhere they go. Consistent studio recordings, year round touring, earnest songwriting & sharing show bills with legends such as Sonny Landreth, Blind Boys of Alabama, Drivin N Cryin and Bettye Lavette has made Andrew Scotchie & the River Rats one of the industry's must-watch bands.

Bold Life Magazine's Austine Miller writes…..
"....there's no true notion of regional blues without Andrew Scotchie and the River Rats, led by the wunderkind of the local scene. Scotchie is a soulful cyclone of a performer nurtured in the classic-rock oeuvre who, at only 23 years old, produces the local festival Asheville Barnaroo and leads his vibrant crew on a near-constant touring schedule"
