Our very own Folkstar has shared the title track for their upcoming album Loud and Clear. Enjoy the lyric video, stream and download it on Bandcamp, and read what Folkstar has to say about the very personal song on their blog. Stay tuned for their upcoming release on Karmic Fury Records in August 2013!
A few weeks ago we posted about our local Wilmington nominees for the Carolina Music Awards and encouraged everyone to vote for our talented Wilmington representatives. Well, at the awards this weekend Wilmington artists won EVERY category in which they were nominated!
Congratulations to the following winners: Crissie McCree, Best Rock Female (who received her award from our dear friend Andy Washburn of NC Local Music, an avid promotor of local music in the Raleigh area); James Ethan Clark, Best Rock Male; Bootleg Dynasty, Best Americana Artist; Karen Kane, Best Producer (which we already knew, since she’s worked with Folkstar on both of their albums).
Further proof that Wilmington is becoming a music scene to be noticed. If you’re not out supporting local music, now is a good time to start!
Below is Brent Watkins’ letter to the community regarding the closure. There will be several last shows from now through the 28th. Check them out while you still can!!
