07/23/16 NIKKI HILL Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Admission: $10. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://nikkihillmusic.com

Those who have seen Carolina girl Nikki Hill sing her ass off agree—this isn’t just another newcomer on the scene, this is a ‘whiplash’ moment. Where did this fireball come from? Why haven’t I heard of her before? If you haven’t heard of Nikki Hill yet, you soon will, and once you see her perform, you won’t forget her.

Hill and her band have been touring extensively following the independent 2015 release ‘Heavy Hearts Hard Fists’ and debut album ‘Here’s Nikki Hill’, released in 2013. With a no-filter energy, and explosive live show, they deliver a sound that will make you believe in rock ‘n’ roll again! Nikki’s unique voice—with raw rock and soul dynamics mixed with the strength, passion, and honesty of blues shouters of the past—steers the driving guitar and a tight rhythm section to create a breath of fresh air with their fast forward approach to American roots music.

Nikki Hill’s self-titled, independently released EP in June of 2012 created a heavy and sudden international underground buzz that the band has traveled with across America and overseas to Europe and Australia. Those four tunes penned by Hill, combined with memorable live performances, have drawn a wide range of people from every avenue and musical taste to their shows. Her enthusiasm for music is simply contagious. One club advertisement will call Nikki “The Southern Fireball”, “the New Soul Sensation”, “amazing R&B Shouter”, and even “the new Queen of Rock n’ Roll”.

If you haven’t heard of her yet, prepare for your ‘whiplash moment’. You have been warned.

07/28/16 ADAM CARROLL with CHRIS CARROLL Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States

A Texas Songwriter born and raised, Adam Carroll takes the events of ordinary lives and turns them into deeply moving, often humorous songs.

With seven Indie CDs supporting regular tours across the USA, Canada and Europe as “one of the hippest songwriters on the Texas music landscape”, this engaging Americana guitar-picker has earned further critical acclaim with song placements in the Grammy nominated film, Country Strong and others.

“The core of what I do is songwriting; it’s the one thing I’m passionate about. It’s the most fulfilling and challenging job I can imagine.” explains Adam.

From his studio records produced by Grammy Award winner Lloyd Maines (South of Town, Lookin’ Out the Screen Door, Live at Cheatham Street, Far Away Blues) through to his latest releases (Old Town Rock N Roll, Hard Times with Michael O’Connor, Live at Flipnotics), the quality of his songwriting stands out.

Given a rare command of the English language and an amazing sense of melody, it’s little surprise Adam has earned enviable comparisons to Townes Van Zandt, Todd Snider, John Prine and Bob Dylan as well as being recognized as a creative influence on his songwriter peers.

Adam Carroll’s song credits include co-writes and CD or Film covers by Slaid Cleaves (Race Car Joe, Hard to Believe), Hayes Carll (Take Me Away, featured in the film Country Strong) and Band of Heathens (Medicine Man, Maple Tears).

“Among singer-songwriters, Adam Carroll is probably Austin’s best-kept secret. His tunes are marvels of economy; .. constantly inventive and decidedly offbeat .. Live at Flipnotics offers a typically low-key yet inviting overview of his career. With (Producer) Scrappy Jud Newcomb on guitar, he sparkles .. ” Jim Caligiuri, Austin Chronicle

“Influences ? .. Adam Carroll .. I used to skip my own gigs to go watch him .. by far my favorite, somebody whose writing style I emulated in some ways.” Hayes Carll, No Depression


Canadian born – Texas based, singer songwriter, Chris Carroll’s music does a little bit of genre hopping, pulling in influences from all of the map, but still deeply steeped in the Americana roots that have the ability to draw in an audience. Chris has recently released her debut record, Trouble & Time.

08/05/16 MOJO DEPOT Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. https://www.reverbnation.com/mojodepot

Mojo Depot began some two decades ago when Jason Adams (drums), Tyndall Jackson (guitar and vocals), Rob Moore (vocals and guitar) and John “Johnny-B” Wright (bass and vocals) got together under the name The Loose Change, performing at clubs that included the White Water Tavern. After a few years, the band moved to the Bay Area and then to Los Angeles, where a debut CD, Phantom Train, had its beginnings. A new name emerged, Mojo Depot, and the group traveled and wrote more music, which became the next CD, Crazy to Believe. For a time, the band was a coast-to-coast phenomenon, with Moore living in Berkeley, Calif., and Jackson attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Eventually, the two rejoined their Arkansas pals and began recording off-and-on in Arkansas City, where they could work in seclusion, away from the temptations of the big city of Little Rock. Like the “band of brothers” theyconsider themselves, Mojo Depot has opened shows for The Allman Brothers Band, The Neville Brothers and The Cate Brothers.

08/11/16 KEVIN KERBY & MARK EDGAR STUART Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States

You can learn a lot about a person by the company he keeps, as a sideman Mark Edgar Stuart has toured with Grammy winner Alvin Youngblood Hart, Jack Oblivian, John Paul Keith and cut two records with singer-songwriter Cory Branan which led to an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. With little fuss or fanfare he became the go-to bass player for an elite group of record producers and artists. His no-nonsense style always played a supporting role that was close to the spotlight, but not too close… Cancer changes things, and so does losing your father. When all of these things happened in rapid succession Mark took some time to heal, and reevaluate. In 2010 He put down his bass, picked up a guitar, and started writing songs he never thought anybody outside his family would ever hear… It’s possible nobody ever would have heard them either, if not for the encouragement of his colleagues. The story you’ll hear over and over again as people discover Mark’s debut CD, Blues for Lou, (and a collection of songs so effortlessly poignant will be discovered and rediscovered for a long time) is how it was triggered by this period of sickness and sorrow. While that’s essentially true, a record like this was inevitable. His debut earned him “Record Of The Year” by the Memphis Flyer. Mark soaks in details like a sponge, and spending so much time in the company of strong songwriters, it was only a matter of time before these humble, humorous and, and sometimes heartbreaking stories found a way to get out. -Chris Davis, Memphis Flyer

“The acrid smell of diesel fuel; the big engines ceaselessly rumbling through the night at the eternal cosmic roadside truckstop; rhinestones glittering like night stars through the brown haze of Mexican weed; outlaws around a desert campfire swapping tales of narrow escapes… The great EP “Nudie Suit” by the Jonesboro, AR group, SKY CITY, is evocative of all this and more. I love it and can’t wait to see how the road unwinds for this bunch.”

Nothing can prepare you for the sound that comes out of his mouth when he sings—or bellows—his stellar songwriting. It is a soulful power beyond belief.” -Paste Magazine

Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice that the Onion A.V. Club warns “knocks your brain into the back of your skull”, Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding.

Called “one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer.” (Arkansas Times) Faucett has again pushed the borders of his “part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler” (Arkansas Democrat Gazette) with the release Blind Water Finds Blind Water, a record of his most arresting and beautiful songs to date.

08/27/16 BJ BARHAM with JOSHUA BLACK WILKINS Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Admission: $15. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://www.americanaquarium.com
http://www.joshuablackwilkins.com

For nearly a decade, American Aquarium have spent the majority of their days on the road, burning through a sprawl of highways during the day and playing hours of raw, rootsy rock & roll at night. Sometimes, the job is a grind. Most times, it’s a blessing. American Aquarium’s songs, filled with biographical lyrics about last calls, lost love and long horizons, have always explored both sides of that divide. For every drunken night at the bar, there’s a hangover in the morning. For every new relationship, there’s the chance of a broken heart. It’s that kind of honesty — that sort of balance — that makes the band’s newest album, Wolves, their strongest release to date.
