Swansgate Swansgate are an Art Rock band based out of Charlotte, NC. Their genre-defying music incorporates elements of Progressive Rock, Jazz, Psychedelic, and more to create a diverse, yet cohesive sound. Led by the virtuoso pianist and talented composer, Art Draughn, Swansgate are recording their debut studio album, and playing frequent live shows throughout the greater North Carolina region. Draughn began teaching himself piano at the young age of 5, and has developed a compositional style that is unlike any other. His list of influences is long, and he’s able to maintain a completely original style that doesn’t favor any particular influence. Draughn is backed by brothers Michael & Gabe McKinney, who play drums and bass guitar, respectively. The McKinney brothers are also self-taught, lifelong musicians who bring their own unique flavor to their instruments. Swansgate are gaining more & more recognition due to their superb musicianship and unique style. With tunes that are rhythmic, jazzy, and unique, Swangate have garnered praise from music lovers of all ages.

The Mongos Indie Rock trio from Charlotte, NC

Kaska Sun Known for their dynamic songwriting and eclectic soundscapes, Kaska Sun formed during the summer of 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Following the release of their debut EP, the four piece consisting of Dan Smith (vocals, guitar), Cory High (guitar, vocals), Robert "Bobby" Wildermuth (bass), and Matt Cole (drums), began performing throughout the Queen City and most notably performing at the annual Hops & Hogs Festival in 2019. Embracing their rock roots, Kaska Sun will be releasing their sophomore EP in 2020.
