Formed in North Carolina in 2013 by singer/guitarist Stephen Warwick, Ancient Cities melds well-crafted lyrics with fuzzy guitars, synth-laden psychedelia and cinematic modiness. Seeking a new musical outlet after his 2010 release, Warwick enlisted friends to join him in the studio for a not-yet-named project, which became Ancient Cities' debut album. Among the cast of players was friend and multi-instrumentalist, Justin Fedor (The New Familiars). The two started playing as a duo and after the release of their self-titled debut in July 2014, they added drums and keys to the lineup. Songs from the album were featured on Showtime's Shameless and TBS's Cougar Town.
During the recording of their second album, Supermoon Blackout, local keyboard standout, Justin Faircloth (The Houston Brothers), joined the band as a full-time member. Supermoon Blackout went on to receive accolades from national publications like Consequence Of Sound and Modern Vinyl as well and was named "Best Local Album Of The Year" by Charlotte's Creative Loafing. They’ve also been featured in the Village Voice and Vanity Fair, have recorded a series of live videos with famed music supporters PASTE Magazine and Live & Breathing, and music from Supermoon Blackout was featured on ABC's Imaginary Mary.
 
Ancient Cities has performed at prominent festivals such as Newport Folk Festival, FloydFest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion and CMJ Music Marathon as well as shared club dates on the east coast with bands like Walk The Moon, Naked And Famous, Dr Dog among many others. In 2017, the band released a cover of Tom Petty's 'Don't Come Around Here No More' featuring their friends, Seratones. Proceeds from the cover song go to benefit Levine Children's Hospital. Currently the band is working on their third album which is speculated for a 2018 release.

QUIET HOLLERS

  
QUIET HOLLERS
  

Quiet Hollers formed in Louisville around the songwriting of singer/guitarist Shadwick Wilde, who originally formed the group with the idea of playing only one show—the CD release of his solo effort, Unforgivable Things, in 2010. The group’s debut, I Am the Morning, followed in 2013. The alt-country styled album was a limited success, spawning a cult following in the US and some international critical praise, allowing the band to continue touring on the DIY circuit, where changes in personnel and taste saw the band exploring territory beyond the genre.

In 2015 the band’s self-titled sophomore album Quiet Hollers introduced them to a much broader audience, drawing praise both for the breadth of its influences and for Wilde’s lyricism. Consequence of Sound called it a “beautiful portrait… breaking the confines of roots music” with PopMatters aptly noting the band’s “strong post-hardcore influence.” The album brought the band to Europe for the first time, selling out shows there and back at home stateside. Breakout singles found their way onto TV shows, coffeehouse playlists, and a #9 debut on the FMQB college and indie charts.

Quiet Hollers signed with the indie label SonaBLAST! for their third album, Amen Breaks. The album draws parallels between the modern entertainment landscape and the cultural crossover of the 1970s– another decade marred by division, political corruption, and terrorist bombs. Their shape-shifting palate makes use of orchestral strings and brass, vintage drum-machines and samples (including the Amen Break, the most sampled piece of music in history). Amen Breaks explores themes of spirituality, sexuality, and mental illness.
