Southern Songs and Stories

WNCW has been a real supporter of ours through the years and we very much appreciate them spinning our tunes and having us in studio too! They are a one of a kind radio station and we love them. Joe Kendrick (of WNCW) asked us to come on his podcast Southern Songs and Stories and talk music and the south with him. He’s doing great things with this series so give it a spin if you will. Check out all the other great episodes as well.

 

Gratitude Vol. 1

Our friends Dylan and Eddie from the Comfort Monk podcast asked me a to contribute a song to their first compilation. The idea was for local artists to cover artists that have been on the podcast. They asked me to contribute a song by Grant Lee Phillips. Total quarantine jams right here. Give all the tunes on this project a spin. Lots of great names I’m honored to be included with as well as just some great tunes. Oh yea. It’s free.

March 5th, 2020 – Live at the Evening Muse

We want to make sure you all know about our next hometown play! We’ll be at the Evening Muse for the first time since 2018, when we recorded a live album there. Sharing the stage will be Front Country. They are a great band out of Nashville TN who we opened up for at The Grey Eagle in Asheville, as well as the Live on The Green concert series, 1st Ward Park uptown Charlotte. Cheers y’all. Hope to see you there.

Glad and Sorry

Surprise y’all, we’re putting out new music today! If you’ve been to one of our shows anytime in the past couple years, you might have heard us play this tune. It’s one of my favorite songs. I first heard it in the background of a movie, which prompted me to find the album at Papa Jazz Record Shoppe back when I lived in Columbia.

It’s a simple but beautiful melody written by Ronnie Lane and originally recorded by Faces. It was also recorded by Golden Smog. If you haven’t heard those versions, look them up! Here is our contribution. Check out the links and let us know what you think!

Songs to No One out now!

Did we mention our new album Songs to No One is out now on all digital platforms? It came out back on September 6th, but we wanted to make a post here on our homepage just to make sure you didn’t miss it!

Rule of 7 (Light and Song Season 2)

We had the pleasure of kicking off Light and Song Season 2 with our tune Rule of 7! Thanks to the crew for working with us to make this. Filmed and recorded live at Camp North End, Charlotte NC.

CLTure: Elonzo Wesley returns with tranquil and thoughtful new album, ‘Songs to No One’

September 4, 2019

Songs to No One, the latest album from Charlotte folk group Elonzo Wesley, transports the listener from the very first notes of track one, “Human Bean.” The recording is intimate and close, with every violin swell and pick of the guitar sounding like it’s in the room with you. The mellow, quiet, no-frills attitude to these tracks conjures the feeling of sitting around a porch with loved ones on a balmy Carolina evening as the sun begins to set. It is warm and comforting, like listening to some friends playing through some of their songs for the pure joy of it, blissfully unaware of the audience listening to the recordings.

Jeremy Davis, the singer-songwriter behind Elonzo Wesley, performs both as a solo artist and with a string band. This new collection of songs features the strings heavily, with upright bass, violin, and mandolin adorning the tracks, as well as smatterings of harmonies (see the gorgeous harmonies on the chorus of “Rock and Roll”). But what truly shines throughout is Davis’ growth as a songwriter. Although this album was written and recorded in a short period of time in order to have new material to showcase on his tour, the material is mature and as strong as anything on his last album, Spec, or anything released by his previous band, Elonzo.
