Known for their captivating blend of rock & roll and country, The Black Lillies have become one of Americana music’s biggest success stories: an internationally-renowned band of roots-rockers, armed with songs that blur the boundaries between genres. They are a mainstay on radio and album sales charts, with a sound that is as powerful in the quieter moments as it is explosive during the jubilant ones. The band’s pared down configuration has resulted in a bigger, deeper sound built on undeniable chemistry, lush three-part harmonies, and instrumental virtuosity with a funky edge.
Their new album Stranger to Me was an immediate critical and fan success, debuting at #5 on the Billboard Folk/Americana chart, #9 on the Billboard Current Country chart, and #61 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart – no small feat for a band that eschews record labels in order to remain independent and in control of their sound. And what a sound it is: built on the foundation of the familiar roots rock of some of the greatest bands of the past, but altogether fresh, modern, sharp; swirling with psychedelic overtones, torch ballad longing, and an indie rock edge.
DAVID TAYLOR AND THE TALLBOYS
Start Time: 8:00
David Taylor has nothing to do with the fact that he has a band; he just got lucky one night. Having been a solo singer/song-writer for several years in the Charlotte music scene, David has built up quite the catalog of songs. He has performed throughout the Charlotte area, and he self-released a solo EP titled Texas Heat in July 2018.
David Taylor & The Tallboys were born after several beers and an impromptu jam session on a Monday night with the help of friends Gersh Godwin on bass, and Jason Cline on lead guitar. Wes Hamilton joined the party on pedal steel guitar, and Matt Sloop filled out the lineup on drums. The Tallboys take David’s songs and turn them into twangy rock-n-roll tunes that make you want to dance, stomp your feet, and cry at the same time.
Despite only having been a band since early 2019, David Taylor & The Tallboys have already started making waves in the music scene. They have played at local festivals, house parties, and venues such as The Evening Muse, Snug Harbor, and The Pour House.
