The Debonzo Brothers
The Debonzo Brothers
"Varying degrees of twang”, “Ruminative folk”, and even “Commercial pop rock”, are a few of the ways the Debonzo Brothers’ dynamic sound has been described by local media in their hometown of Raleigh, NC. With the brothers having grown up on folk and bluegrass through their musician father, and also being compared to such early indie acts like The Psychedelic Furs, it begins to paint a picture of the genre-bending territory they inhabit.

Debonzo Brothers’ first EP titled “Places” was released in the summer of 2010. The six song collection is a patchwork of changing influences put on display with the help of guest musicians Joe Kwon of the Avett Brothers and Grammy-nominated dobro player, Rick Keen. Central to the band’s relevance is its proficient and tasteful rhythm section backstopped by prolific bassist Grant Emerson and former American Aquarium drummer Chris Hibbard. An evening with Debonzo Brothers promises compelling songwriting, eccentric humor, and engaging rock and roll shaded with Americana and modern indie.
The Riverbreaks
The Riverbreaks is a rock band known for its rowdy shows, raw emotion, and lyrical depth. Formed in 2009 around songs Ryan Bailey (lead singer) wrote in Central America during the Peace Corps, the band quickly developed a strong following in their home base of Washington, D.C. In 2012, they traveled to Chapel Hill, N.C., where many of the band members originally met at UNC, to work with acclaimed producer Chris Stamey (Whiskeytown, Roman Candle). The resulting album, Wildfire, featured long-term members Ryan Bailey, Jesse Prentice-Dunn (guitar), Andrew Satten (keys), Neela Rajendra (violin), and Drew Ball (bass), and was named a Top 10 Album of the Year by the Sun Herald. The band kicked off their Wildfire album release tour at D.C.’s prestigious Kennedy Center, and ultimately covered 20+ states, Canada, and Europe.

In 2014, Ryan relocated to his hometown of Nashville, TN, where he began work on several upcoming albums. The first, How Still is the Night (January 2018 release) was produced by Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle) and Jordan Lehning (Andrew Combs), and features gorgeous strings, a powerful horn section, and members of Steelism. The second, Caney Fork River (release date TBD), was recorded with producer/drummer Ken Coomer (Wilco) and is full of field recordings, swooping pedal steel, and tasteful guitar by Sons of Bill’s Sam Wilson. A third, almost completed project is in the works with multi-instrumentalist/producer Jon Estes. Expect music from all three projects soon.
