The Charlotte trio of multi-instrumentalists Ben Verner, Chris Dameron and Chris Walters create chill sonic landscapes and atmospheric cosmic rock with soulful but restrained harmonies that hover between electro indie rock and alt R&B. The duo of IamDynamite remains a consistent live force with its own soulful, harmony-anchored pop that plays like a modern-day Hall & Oates.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as Bonnaroo’s “most enthusiastic rockers,” the peppy surf-n-synth, call-and-response, psych-pop of husband and wife Jared and Krystin Corder is nothing short of infectious. Looking and sounding like actress Isla Fisher or Jenny Lewis teaming with an eccentric visual art teacher, the band lives up to that promise on its upcoming “Floral Canyon” album.
