Mightier Than Me
Mightier Than Me
Greensboro band, Mightier Than Me, may be newcomers to the scene, but they are coming off of a big 2016. While making a name for themselves in the NC Triad area, the high-energy alternative rock band has built a reputation for catchy songs laced with lush vocals, searing guitar riffs, raw power, and real emotion. Add to that the work ethic of a veteran band, and it suddenly becomes clear that the sky is the limit for Mightier Than Me.

Randy Williams, Wes Frank Norman, Sarah Barker and Robert Justin Seawell met on the first day of class at Guilford Technical Community College. After the school’s Ensemble audition, the four immediately realized they were on the same musical page and started working on music. They approached drummer Charlie Fuson to finish their lineup. After a couple of writing sessions, they knew that forming a band was the way to go.

Mightier Than Me has caught the attention of media the world over. The band has been featured in entertainment publications such as Yes! Weekly and Everything Music, have performed on Record Greensboro, Jared & Katie in the Morning on WKZL radio, and Time Warner Cable News, and have taken part in dozens of interviews, podcasts, and other multimedia outlets.

The self-titled debut EP of Mightier Than Me has been played internationally, earning several top 5 singles on indie radio stations worldwide, as well as regular airplay on stations in the region. “O.L.E.” and “To Be Determined” are set to be hits. Of the latter, Rebecca Cullen of Stereo Stickman says, "This one in particular could easily create a wave through an array of audiences...a definite highlight of the whole release.” Of the EP itself, she writes, "This new project by Mightier Than Me is one that presents listeners with high levels of physical and emotional energy, as well as impressive musical skills, and brilliant songwriting.” Their EP release show, a highly anticipated event, was the first show to ever sell out the concert space at GTCC’s Center for Creative and Performing Arts in High Point.

Going forward, Mightier Than Me hopes to continue building on what they started in 2016, setting sights on more shows, more appearances, and more music for the masses, in the form of an LP.

"LaureNicole", formerly known as Lauren Nicole Band, was formed in 2014 and consists of four members: Lauren Nicole (vocals, rhythm guitar, songwriter), Evan Bennett (bass, backing vocals), Griffin Prufer (lead guitar), and Ryan Whitcher (drums, percussion). The band has a balance of original compositions and covers and plays regularly in their home state, North Carolina.

Lauren Nicole, now 23 years old, has written over 40 songs and recorded two albums over the past few years. She has played both acoustic and electric guitar for nearly 10 years. Prior to forming her band, Lauren recorded and released her first album, "Hope & Desire," as a solo artist in 2011. The album was produced by Chip Shearin who has worked with renowned artists such as Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, and Aretha Franklin. Shearin is primarily known for his iconic bass line in "Rappers Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang.

In the past two years, Lauren has reached several milestones: completed a 30-day crowd-funding campaign to record a 7 song live EP in Miraverse/Manifold studios, won the Bands4Good challenge and raised over 3,000 dollars for homeless veterans in North Carolina. Lauren was also nominated for Best Female Rock Artist of the Year at the 2014 Carolina Music Awards.

Evan Bennett, 22 years old, has been playing bass guitar for nearly 10 years. He joined this project in October of 2013 and since then he has been heavily involved with the band's songwriting and arranging. Evan has heavily influenced the direction of the band's songwriting by creating unique instrumental guitar parts. In the past year, Evan has also encouraged the band to go in a more mainstream rock vein. His influences include Victor Wooten, Flea, Duff McKagan, Mike Mills, Chris Wholstenholme and many more.

Ryan Whitcher, 21 years old, has been playing drums for 10 years. Ryan joined "LaureNicole" in September of 2014 and since then he has truly become the backbone of the band. After searching long and hard for the right drummer, Ryan came along and offered a fresh, clean, and dynamic sound to the band. Although this is Ryan's first project, his fans say his abilities and talents are greater than his years. His influences range from Neil Peart, Mick Fleetwood, and John Bonham.

Griffin Prufer, 20 years old, is originally from Greensboro NC and the newest member of "LaureNicole". He has been playing guitar consistently for 10 years. Griffin is also a student at NC State University and is currently studying textile engineering. Griffin brings a commercial, edgy, and modern rock sound to the band. Griffin's influences include Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Van Halen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Pink Floyd.

In recent news, "LaureNicole" is excited to be collaborating with one of the music industry's top producers and sound engineers, John Davenport. Davenport has worked with acclaimed artists such as The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Cindy Lauper, John Lennon, and is credited on several platinum albums. The band has recorded its first album with Davenport in his new state-of-the-art facility, Deep River Studios, located in Sanford, NC.

The album, entitled "Light the Way," is scheduled for release in the fall of 2015.
Marye Amanda
Marye Amanda
I love to perform. I sing, dance, act, play the flute, play the piano, play the electric guitar, and play the acoustic guitar. I have been writing lyrics for a few years and I have recently begun to compose the music to go with them.
Louis Waymore
Louis Waymore
Louis Waymore is what you get when you mix 3 seasoned veteran musicians with one of the best pure vocalists in NC, add 1 part honky tonk-rockabilly with a serving of folk rock. It's American music. Played by Americans. Cause this is America. Unless, we play a British rock song... then its British music, played by Americans... and well, if you count the redhead's Irish heritage... well, it's definitely music. Mostly.

So, who is Louis Waymore? The drummer won't tell us. But come to a show. If you are cool enough, and can keep a secret, there is a good chance you will leave with the answer!
