Arkansas native William Blackart plays a lo-fi country brand of folk music. With lyrics described as “poetic and captivating,” vocals pegged as “rough and emotive” and guitar work called “hypnotic and spare” (Dakota Discography), his influences range from Townes Van Zandt to Leonard Cohen to The Clash.

11/21/18 THE BODY * AUTHOR & PUNISHER Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 8:30pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400.

Author & Punisher recalls Ministry channeling Godflesh, traversing through dark, uncompromising, and often disturbing soundscapes with occasional detours into rich melodies and splinters of light.

On No One Deserves Happiness, The Body’s Chip King and Lee Buford set out to make “the grossest pop album of all time.” The album themes of despair and isolation are delivered by the unlikely pairing of the Body’s signature heaviness and 80s dance tracks. The Body can emote pain like no other band, and their ability to move between the often strict confines of the metal world and the electronic music sphere is on full display throughout No One Deserves Happiness, an album that eludes categorization. More than any of their genre-defying peers, The Body does it without softening their disparate influences towards a middle ground, but instead through a beautiful combining of extremes. No One Deserves Happiness is an album that defies definition and expectations, standing utterly alone.

11/23/18 THE FUNKANITES * RECORDS SPUN BY JOSHUA ASANTE Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Admission: $10. Age restrictions: No Minors. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400.

https://www.facebook.com/FUNKANITES

Funkanites are an eight piece Little Rock Arkansas-based Afrobeat, Soul, and Funk ensemble. The lineup features members of other Little Rock bands such as Amasa Hines, Velvet Kente, and Twice Sax to name a few. To say the band is well seasoned is an understatement. They are quite capable of handling any genre thrown at them, however, their focus is heavily on late 60’s and 70’s Afrobeat, Soul, and Funk with a contemporary spin on the genres. Big bombastic horn lines are the norm, as well as an airtight rhythm section that stretches and sews the pocket but never leaves it. Though almost entirely instrumental, some of the members have been known to sing on a traditional Afrobeat tune or two. They are ambassadors of a music that is not so readily available in a live setting in this day and age. They will move you.

Visiting planet Gurf has always been an enlightening experience. After all, this Gurf Morlix fellow – Buffalo born, Texas bred – has provided us with countless indelible musical moments in the last 40-plus years: his exemplary guitar and production work with Lucinda Williams; his instrumental accompaniment to artists ranging from Blaze Foley to Warren Zevon; his production of watermark albums for artists such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen and Mary Gauthier – and, since 2000, a series of eight solo records that have a singular worldview and can be both harrowing and heartening, often at the same time.

Nobody I know—and I mean nobody—has covered more ground and made more friends and sung more songs than the fellow you’re about to meet right now. He’s got a song and a friend for every mile behind him. Say hello to my good buddy, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. Johnny Cash, The Johnny Cash Television Show, 1969.

One of the last true links to the great folk traditions of this country, with over 40 albums under his belt, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott is considered one of the country’s legendary foundations of folk music.

Long before every kid in America wanted to play guitar — before Elvis, Dylan, the Beatles or Led Zeppelin — Ramblin’ Jack had picked it up and was passing it along. From Johnny Cash to Tom Waits, Beck to Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder to Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead to The Rolling Stones, they all pay homage to Ramblin’ Jack Elliott.

In the tradition of roving troubadours Jack has carried the seeds and pollens of story and song for decades from one place to another, from one generation to the next. They are timeless songs that outlast whatever current musical fashion strikes today’s fancy.

12/09/18 UADA * ASH OF CEDARS Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States

UADA:
From the darkness, UADA (meaning haunted in latin) emerges breathing the spirit of the original 90’s Black Metal wave. Since 2014, this Portland, Oregon four-piece has used a unique approach to combine raw black metal and spectral melodies. “dark waves of guitar melody that sweep through the music like a winter gale (and sometimes drift like a grave-side mist)” – NO CLEAN SINGING “diabolical and deep, like a better-informed and more melodic version of De Mysteriis-era Mayhem. The result scratches the infernal itch perfectly, and will hopefully be embrace by both old- and new-schoolers alike.” – METALSUCKS

ASH OF CEDARS:
Crooked nature in all its suffocating glory cracks and snaps in the fire, spreads like ink above, and slithers, crawls and slinks with the low grass, the grubs, and the black-red floor of the night forest. Starving eyes encircle the dry camp in the dark, drawn to brother fire. The heat, the unlight and sound, forms. An ancient path in pain, face down in the coals, bloodrock, leading to the shallow underneath. Under the ground. The bottoms of caskets like queer, dark panels. Loamy too tight tunnels, barriers of bone, the old trip through cobwebs, briar, nails backwards broken. The anti-journey, the non-destination. Disintegration of flesh, dried and cracked blood, maggotpath. To scream to escape but the lungs are compacted with black, wormwood and earth. The asterisms are inversed. The stars, the Crux, are black.

Cory Branan is a natural-born storyteller. As with any of his musical and literary pedestal sitters, from John Prine and Leonard Cohen to Raymond Carver and Márquez, his seemingly conversational, painstakingly crafted anecdotes benefit from a hard-eyed stare at hydra-headed experience.

Drexel Baker III was born in Alexandria, Louisiana and grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. He began playing drums as a kid and eventually in the regionally known trio Go Fast in the late 90s and early 2000s. He secretly began experimenting with songwriting during this time – recording what he could and distributing to a select group of friends and fellow musicians. Upon moving to New York City in 2004, he embarked on making his first full-length album. His debut record, The Bloody Transylvania Street Machine, was released in 2005 followed by Green Sky (2008), and Strange Mystery (2013). Drexel has recorded with various bands over his twenty-year career in the industry. His fourth record Flashback City will be released in November 2018.

Kevin Kerby writes songs. Sometime around the fourth grade Kerby became obsessed with his dad’s record collection; a delicate balance of country, soul, and comedy. Make any connections you would like at this point.

12/20/18 JIMBO MATHUS Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States

The late Memphis producer Jim Dickinson once called Jimbo Mathus “the singing voice of Huck Finn.” Outside the South, Mathus is likely known as the ringleader of the hyper-ragtime outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers. In his native Mississippi and throughout the South, however, Mathus is the prolific songwriter of born-in-the-bone Southern music, the torchbearer for Deep South mythology and culture. Think Delta highways, bowling-pin Budweisers and “innerplanetary honky-tonk” for the masses.

As Dickinson would say, ‘If you don’t like this, there is seriously something wrong with you.’”

Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice 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 of It Took the Shape of a Bird, a record of his most personal, unbodied, and darkly beautiful songs to date.

Sad Daddy began as the meeting of three musical minds — Brian Martin (guitar), Melissa Carper (bass), and Joe Sundell (banjo). The dynamic songwriting of the original three members carried the group’s 2010 self-titled release and won them a loyal following in and around the great state of Arkansas. However, with Carper and Sundell residing in Austin, TX and Martin far away in Ozark country the group’s opportunities for collaboration and performance were few and far between. Now with the original members all back in Arkansas as well as the addition of standout fidller Rebecca Patek, Sad Daddy is embarking on the next chapter of their musical journey. Their follow-up album, “Fresh Catch” was released in fall 2016 to massive critical acclaim and the band has been touring extensively throughout 2017. While Sad Daddy’s musicianship and stagecraft are worthy of mention, the songwriting of Martin, Carper, and Sundell, remains the cornerstone of the group’s allure and allows them to connect with a wide range of audiences.
