04/18/14 ADAM CARROLL RECORD RELEASE SHOW! w/ Christian Marie Carroll opening ADAM CARROLL RECORD RELEASE SHOW! w/ Christian Marie Carroll opening in Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://038343e.netsolhost.com/wordpress1/

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.

“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

“Hands down, one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer —certainly one of the most respected songsmiths around. Adam Faucett manages to get under your ribs, effortlessly.”

JT Tarpley – Arkansas Times


Wooden Wand, a.k.a. singer-songwriter James Jackson Toth, has released a vast amount material under such collectives as Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice, Wooden Wand & the Sky High Band, and Wooden Wand & the Briarwood Virgins. Toth’s style has drawn on a variety of both conventional and experimental folk, country and rock influences, including psych folk, acid folk, free folk, and indie. The heavily Neil Young and Crazy Horse-influenced “Briarwood,” released in November 2011, is perhaps Toth’s most lyrically accessible record to date.

“Their sound is fun, fresh and effortlessly catchy. They make 60s-inspired music – like so many bands nowadays do – but they do so with a twist: in addition to the unmistakable doo-wop vocals and soft harmonies, they also provide another side to their music which has a raw, Black Keys quality about it.” - Love At First Listen

06/26/14 Jessica Lea Mayfield Jessica Lea Mayfield in Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Admission: $12. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://jessicaleamayfield.com

The 23-year old from Kent, Ohio first performed with her family band One Way Rider at the age of 8. At age 15, she recorded her first album White Lies in her brother’s bedroom, printing only 100 copies. One of those copies fell into the hands of Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys). After an introduction, Mayfield and Auerbach hit the studio, laying the foundation for her debut album With Blasphemy So Heartfelt. Says Auerbach of the recording experience, “I think she’s dark and moody in a mysterious way.” He adds, “I’m just always really excited to make music with her.”

Mayfield’s second and most recent album, Tell Me, is a stunningly forthright 11-song set that addresses late night longing, serial heartbreak, and intoxicatingly dangerous liaisons conducted in dimly lit barrooms or roadside motels. By the end, the only heart intact is Mayfield’s own. It’s as if she’d stripped the sentimentality and ruefulness from a bunch of classic country songs, leaving only stark emotion. Auerbach also produced and engineered Tell Me at his Easy Eye Sound System studio in Akron, Ohio, matching Mayfield’s candor with eerily minimal, brilliantly constructed tracks that keep her mesmerizing, unadorned voice front and center.

The New York Times hailed the album a Critics’ Pick, while the Associated Press calls Tell Me “the portrait of a precocious girl growing into self-assured womanhood and a producer reaching the peak of his powers. It is a dark and moody album, full of delights throughout, and if it doesn’t make Mayfield a star, that too will be heartbreaking.”
