Asheville, North Carolina's River Whyless is a band much like that titular body of water - a mingling of currents, a flow of time and physical space, all brought together in a murmuring sense of purpose. It is the expression of a group of musicians, three of which are songwriters, who have played together in various forms since their college days in the North Carolina mountains. Their forthcoming EP, their first release since their 2012 debut album, is the next evolution of the band's collective voice.

Composed of Ryan O'Keefe (guitars, vocals), Halli Anderson (violin, vocals), Alex McWalters (drums, percussion) and Daniel Shearin (bass, vocals, harmonium, cello, banjo), the band is preparing to release a self-titled EP, their first effort since 2012, on January 20th.

Lowly the Tree Ghost is a band that was brought together through the common idea of nourishing and creating music that embraces vivid imagery for its audience while establishing a sense of community. The band's varied musical backgrounds and tastes coalesce, creating a sound that cannot be carefully compartmentalized into one genre. They delicately traipse the folk-rock line and then in the next song, will be found leaning towards a pop or an indie sound.

Lowly, The Tree Ghost is:

Andrew Arbogast - Vocals & Guitar
Emily McKitrick - Vocals & Keys
Joseph Piedmonte - Bass
Laura Simna - Violin
Alec Schumann - Drums

Daniel Rylander is a singer/songwriter from the Akron, Ohio area. He released his first, full length record a few months after he had received news that his older brother, 2 Lt David Rylander, was killed in Afghanistan. This tragedy was the inspiration that drove him to pursue his music full time and chase his dreams like there is no tomorrow, remembering that every day is a gift. He is currently working on a brand new EP to follow up his debut album, Strawberry Skyline. Be on the look out for "The Memoirs of a Poolside Romance", coming summer of 2015!

Daniel will be accompanied by his band for this performance:

Stephen Rylander - Drums & Percussion
Brian Fackelman - Bass
Jordan Steinhauser - Electric Guitars / Piano / Vocals
