Raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains of South Carolina, Sam Burchfield was brought up on Appalachian music: folk, gospel, country and southern soul. The young songwriter draws on these roots with a deep lyrical honesty and carries the tradition of folk music forward.
Burchfield’s upcoming EP, ‘Graveyard Flower’, seeks to reconnect to the Appalachian roots that raised him. In a world of cell phones and internet distractions, this body of work beckons the listener to plant their feet firmly in the soil. Reconnect to the land, reconnect to each other; ‘Graveyard Flower’ is honest music.
Sam Burchfield and his band of ‘Scoundrels’ have opened for wide range of talent, from St. Paul & The Broken Bones to CAAMP and Ben Rector. Whether a raucous full band performance or an intimate acoustic performance Burchfield’s lyrical depth and pure vocals bring to life beautifully crafted songs. After turning down multiple contracts, the up and coming folk singer has continued to release music independently and has grown over 150k monthly listeners on Spotify as well as millions of listens.
Próxima Parada blends soulful melody and hard-hitting rhythm into a sound distinctly their own, groovy and uplifting. They tour the country spreading introspection, vulnerability, human connection, and a hell of a lot of joy.
Following the success of their last album, Próxima signed with New-York-City-based label, AntiFragile, and released Kind Reminder on Sept 27, 2019. LISTEN: https://ffm.to/kindreminder
Starting in 2012 as a group of college friends wanting to extend their dynamic to their community in San Luis Obispo, CA, they never dreamed that their passion would reach a global audience, that they’d perform at beautiful historic venues and music festivals, that their songs would earn awards, that their music would soothe and inspire people around the world.

Over the last ten years, Pierce Edens has been drawing on his Appalachian songwriting roots and blending them with the grungy rock and roll sounds that took him in his teenage years. The result is a haunting and fiery mixture that is notoriously hard to pin down. Allmusic.com classifies Edens as both “Folk-Rock” and “psychedelic-grunge,” and No Depression writer Bill Kopp says “[He] could just as easily- and accurately- be tagged with the singer/songwriter label; He’s a gritty troubadour who takes what he needs from each style, blending and bending it to suit the needs of his songs.” Or, as Fred Mills state in Blurt Magazine, “Somewhere up there in the hills of western North Carolina a lot of bodies are buried, and Pierce Edens is the man with the locations. There’s no evidence that a cop, D.A. or judge can bring forth, mind you, but he clearly knows something; you can hear it in his twisted, tortured vocal bray […] a soulful-yet-serrated instrument that conveys far more than even its owner might intend.” Now, in his fifth fully independent album (Stripped Down Gussied Up), Edens has taken his singular voice back home to his studio in Western North Carolina to bury some more bodies. This album witnesses Edens stripping down the instrumentation to simply the vocals, percussion, and guitar, alongside his long time band-mate Kevin Reese accompanying with lead guitar, mandolin, and occasional banjo for a handful of genre-bending songs. Stripped Down Gussied Up delivers Edens’ signature sound as it should be heard; intimate and atmospheric, glittery, gritty, and raw.
