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.

Cutting Edge Bluesman LIGHTNIN MALCOLM, a charismatic and energetic guitarslinger with a deep soulful voice, has taken his irresistable Dance grooves from Juke Joint teen years as a One Man Band to World stages with mainstream artists such as Robert Plant, Jimmy Buffett, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, The Black Keys, Widespread Panic, Big Head Todd, North Mississippi Allstars, Lucero, and Gary Clark Jr.

MALCOLM generally performs as a Power Duo, with his Larger than Life Guitar riffs teamed up with razor sharp drums (Cedric Burnside, Cam Kimbrough, Stud, etc), or as the One Man Band (playing guitar, harmonica, and kick drums simultaneously) that made him a hit in Juke Joints across the South. “They used to send for me at juke joints as a One Man Band, and everybody would be dancin to Al Green, Johnnie Taylor,and Tyrone Davis. Then they would shut the jukebox off and stick me out in the middle of the floor… I’d be nervous because the jukebox sounded so good…. But this was how I was surviving and failure was not an option. You had to win them over on the first song or you wasnt gonna get another try… But once you did you was about to have the greatest night of your life!” he explains “My music was developed on Americas Funkiest Dancefloors!” This rigid training ground taught MALCOLM to be an alert and intense performer, with the stamina to channel and electrify the audiences emotions.

04/28/18 KEVIN KERBY & BATTERY Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Age restrictions: No Minors. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. https://vimeo.com/5762296

Kevin Kerby is no manufactured enigma. He’s just an honest working man who happens to write songs imbued with mystery and grace, that come plainly sung, like country, and sliding sideways toward the truth like real poetry … except you can’t be affected by them unless you listen to them, unless you hear the slow surge and slow-motion tumble of the words.

Equal parts primal, early rock’n’roll, deviant hill country blues & avant-garde art – TAV FALCO’s PANTHER BURNS are ramshackle, raw, unholy & utterly amazing. Tav Falco is one of the truly original and romantic forces in American music – the voice that America lost and found. He is tender and virile, flamboyant, witty and dangerous. Falco brings daggers back to the stage. He is the one who always holds out a hand to the enemy.

Like many of the musicians, scholars, carnies and flaneurs that inspired him, Tav Falco is a Southern provocateur grifting his audience with the ol’ song and dance act before shuffling out the back door with a wink and a nod. His historico-musico revue, The Unapproachable Panther Burns, originated in 1979 at the nadir of Memphis’ postmodern, post-Beale, post-Sun, post-Stax era, when the Mississippi River town had seemingly disappeared from the cultural map and shriveled into an obsolescent landmark. Only groups like the Dixie Flyers, Mud Boy and the Neutrons, Big Star and Panther Burns were intent to keep the fires burning with or without commercial success, and their contribution to experimental pop music, dirty rock ‘n roll and the blues revival have been incalculable.


“A classically trained opera singer, Bonnie Montgomery is known for her warm country voice and her timeless songwriting, but her talents don’t stop there.” –Paste Magazine

“…stunningly authentic, honest-to-goodness songwriting reminiscent of the old country greats.” –Pop Matters

05/03/18 ADAM CARROLL * CHRIS CARROLL Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 8:00pm. Age restrictions: No Minors. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400.

Adam Carroll’s musical biography is as winding as the stories in his songs, full of far-away places and close-to-home meditations that encompass a career built on countless shows in Texas clubs, thousands of miles on the road with his partner in life and music, Chris Carroll, accolades of all kinds, and still the burning desire to simply…write the next song.

Thank goodness for that, because Carroll’s songs tap into a vein of the human condition that make them deeply moving but often humorous. As No Depression notes, “Carroll slips easily between observed detail and poetic flight, framing everyday images as literary moments. He’s particularly adept at portraiture, whether it’s a colorful hustler, a rural taxi driver or a karaoke singer, he sees what you might feel, but couldn’t verbalize, capturing a person’s essence in the details of their physical being and actions.”

“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. In fact, the scope of Carroll’s songwriting influence was recognized in 2016 when “Highway Prayer: A Tribute to Adam Carroll” was released, featuring esteemed writers/performers like Hayes Carll, James McMurtry, Slaid Cleaves, and Terri Hendrix covering Carroll-penned tunes. It has garnered attention from publications like Texas Monthly and Rolling Stone, the latter which noted that Carroll “is talented beyond his years.”

With tours crisscrossing the USA, Canada and Europe, Carroll is currently focusing on performances as a duo with Chris Carroll, Canadian singer-songwriter and Texas transplant. Their distinct energies and personalities play off each other onstage, and the effect is a both moving and entertaining show that delights crowds from coast to coast.

05/10/18 AUSTIN LUCAS Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Age restrictions: No Minors. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400.

No one ever said country music had to be simple, and when Austin Lucas began thinking about the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2013 album Stay Reckless he had a lot on his mind. The Indiana troubadour wanted to do something not only different from his own work, but unlike anything else being done in the realm of country music and Americana. Between The Moon And The Midwest marries traditional & cosmic country sounds with sharp, vivid storytelling in a fully realized album concept.

05/12/18 THE SALTY DOGS * CHERRY RED Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States

The Salty Dogs are back with a new EP, Goodnight. Together for 14 years, the four piece neo-classic country band are the Land of Opportunity’s honky tonk sages. “Goodnight was a blast to record and I feel is the truest representation of what the band is all about,” explains front man Brad Williams.

Started as a lark retro-country act, the quartet immediately found chemistry, along with a lot of joy, as they dug into their craft. Their sound has expanded over a decade and a half, from uber-twang and purist classic country to equal parts 1954 Nashville, 1961 Bakersfield, and 1972 Everywhere.

The band has played countless shows sharing the stage with such likes of Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Jr., Old Crow Medicine Show, Billy Joe Shaver, Robert Earl Keen, The Gourds, Pete Anderson, David Rawlings, Kinky Friedman, Junior Brown, Kelly Willis and many more.

05/24/18 THE GREYHOUNDS Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States

Rising out of the Austin, Texas music scene, the Greyhounds, a duo comprising guitarist Andrew Trube and keyboardist Anthony Farrell, feature a unique sound that mixes R&B, soul, funk, and the Bakersfield country of Buck Owens into a style that has been described as “Hall & Oates meets ZZ Top,” and the duo’s exciting live shows have earned them a large and loyal fan following. The pair met in the late ’90s, and immediately began writing and playing together, placing tunes with artists like Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks while building up a songwriting catalog and gathering new fans with each show. The Greyhounds signed a three-album deal with a reconstituted Ardent Records (by this point officially called Ardent Music) and released Accumulator early in 2014. Two years later, the group released Change of Pace, a record that emphasized their soulful side.
