Diamonds & Whiskey 745PM
Charlotte duo Diamonds and Whiskey is introducing Dark Country Voodoo to the world
They call it “Dark Country Voodoo.” It’s a fitting genre description as well as a first album title for this Charlotte, North Carolina duo. Haunting guitar riffs dueling with a playful fiddle while sultry country crooning is laid over the top. Hey, if the title fits, wear it. Singer Jennifer Lauren (Henry River Honey),and guitarist Von Bury (Lovesucker, Red All Over, Chelsea Daggers) only started playing together as Diamonds and Whiskey in the fall of 2016, but when the chemistry is right, good things can happen. The band’s debut album, Dark Country Voodoo, is due out in 2017 and features a dynamic range of music that showcases the duo’s strengths as songwriters, both musically and lyrically, and seasoned performers.
The album presents a range of styles. “Whiskey Down,” the band’s first single, was originally a tune performed by Henry River Honey. It’s the first song Jennifer ever wrote; about a man who loved whiskey more than her. “Hero” showcases Jennifer’s vocals against a piano backdrop in the style of Tori Amos. “Rebel Child” brings forth a stomp-and-holler style of country-rock. One song is different than the next, but fans who play it on vinyl won’t want to lift the needle.
Caroline Keller Band 630PM
Caroline Keller was born on April 23, 1989, right in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina. A southern girl with a spirit as fiery as her red hair, Caroline grew up in a family that valued God and the gifts He grants to all of us. For Caroline, that gift came in the form of a voice. She began to pursue her dream of becoming a singer at a very early age and made a name for herself as a Christian Country singer, recording the album “Queen of the Highway” when she was just 16 years old. Drawing inspiration from her own experiences, she topped the Christian Country charts, with four songs ranked in the top ten.
Now, after years of training, hard work, and the artistry that comes not only from seeing life but from living it, Caroline uses her God-given gift and pursues her talents every day. She sings at Five Stone’s worship services each Sunday and remains very active within her church community. “I love my church,” she says. “I love it for the people, the message, for all of it.” But her work extends outside of that community as well. She wants to inspire. The music moves her, and she’s a songwriter who understands that the hard parts of life — the parts that stick with you — can’t always be expressed with simple words. Sometimes, you have to put those words into a song.
Haley Mae Campbell 5PM
A dedicated singer/songwriter raised in Charleston, SC, Haley Mae has loved music and performing arts all her life. After recording at Cupit Studios in Nashville, Haley Mae debuted her first album, “Hugs & Disses,” at the Charleston Music Farm in February of 2015. Since then, she has landed many notable gigs including writing and performing a Monday night promotional music video with the Charleston RiverDogs, a slot at the 9th Annual First Flush Festival with headliner Sheryl Crow, and opening for country stars Love and Theft, Lauren Alaina, Dan + Shay, Easton Corbin, Chris Janson, Brothers Osborne, and Josh Turner, as well as folk legends The Avett Brothers. Immediately after graduating, Haley Mae and her band, The Hardware, embarked on their first ever tour of the East coast. Performing everywhere from Orlando to New York City, the “Hugs & Disses Tour” marks the first of many to come for this young performer. Her new EP, "Phone Home," shows incredible growth over the last year. The five-track album, co-written with drummer Ben Sewell, was recorded at Truphonic Studios in Charleston, SC, and engineered by Joey Cox. "Evergreen," the last song on the track list and first written for the project, was quickly picked up by 105.5 The Bridge for regular rotation. The title track and lead single from the album, "Phone Home," is a fan favorite and quite the head-turner. A folk/rock sound coupled with clever lyrics and evocative melodies make EP "Phone Home" an exciting development in this new artist's career. Haley Mae has been featured on numerous radio and television programs, including Lowcountry Live on ABC News 4, Y102.5, Nash FM 96.9, OHM Radio 96.3, Live 5 News, 105.5 The Bridge, WEZL 103.5, WSBF Clemson, i93.7 Locals Only, The Dave Ugly Show, and The Pat Henry Project WMTS.
