Live Music: Andy Branton

Louisville, Kentucky based, country-blues artist Andy Branton cut his teeth playing guitar in country and rock & roll bands around the West Alabama bar scene. After years of collecting stories and songs while driving up and down Alabama’s highways and dirt roads, he self-released his debut EP 47 Minutes Away in late 2018.

Andy assembled a crack team of Birmingham, Alabama’s finest musicians – including Adrian Marmolejo of Early James & the Latest (Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound) and Les Nuby formerly of Verbena (Capital Records) – to commit his songs to tape. The band worked its magic, cranking out the tunes in just one 8-hour session.

The namesake of the EP is an up-tempo, country-rock scorcher about coming home to Little Rock, Arkansas after being on the road for weeks. It heavily features Ford Boswell (Early James & the Latest) on pedal steel and Daniel Raine (Little Raine Band) on piano and harmonica.

Special Live Music Event – Clay Page

American Idol alum Clay Page’s sound is best described as new, old school. From traditional country to southern rock, mixed with soul and blues, Clay can adapt to any element and write to the mood the melody takes him.
Raised on the banks of the green water, red clay, and pine trees of Georgia, Clay has been influenced by traditional country sounds. Page’s sound and musicianship at times can reflect the early pioneered southern sounds out of Macon, Georgia’s, Capricorn Studios, and the sweet sound of the swampers in Alabama. You will always find the soulful Nashville songwriter, blues, traditional country, southern rock hints and Georgia roots leading the growing credibility of Clay Page’s New Old School Sound.

Mercury Blonde Live

Mercury Blonde is a nationally touring Americana/Southern Rock band based in East Nashville, Tennessee. The band was formed in 2017 when each member decided to make the move to music city to pursue a career in music and ended up finding each other through the vast network of open jams. Each member of the band is from the east and the mid-west area of the United States.

The band released their debut record “Left on Gallatin” in 2018, recorded in Coop DeVille Studios by Wes Little, where each song has its own meaning on how to approach certain life situations, past relationships, and also admitting that sometimes the best course of action is to just run away. The sounds of rocking slide guitar remind you of Derek Trucks, and the vocals give you the songwriting sense of Steve Earle. This record encompasses the sound of Mercury Blonde with their new sounds of Americana mixed with old school sounds of rock n’roll.

The band has toured across the state of Tennessee, performed on live radio for the Blue Plate Special radio show in Knoxville, they have traveled as far south as Austin, TX to play the Red Gorilla Festival, and have made their way north to play The Elbo Room in Chicago and Frankie’s Blue Room in Naperville, IL.

Mercury Blonde is fronted by lead vocalist Zach Sarapas, with Dan Wecht (lead/slide guitar/vocals), Mario Galati (bass), and Tyler Peck (drums).
