Local artists release new music

I can't say I'm a fan of their name, "WSNB," but the music is just as "nasty" as the acronym -- "We Sing Nasty Blues." The band is holding a CD release party for its latest, "jomo swamp root boogie" at the Double Door on June 3. With smooth slide guitar, nicely-fitted harmonica riffs, gritty vocals and down-home blues, the 15-track CD leaves its mark on the listener. It's foot-tapping music at its finest. They've shared the stage with some big names, but the album is a good step in making a name for themselves. The group is often found playing around the state, check 'em out when you can.

Local musician/songwriter James Deem recently released his first CD of original music. The 10-track album became available on May 18 and was produced by Jamie Hoover (The Spongetones). The pop/rock album offers Deem a chance to get away from being known as another cover-artist while showcasing his songwriting abilities, guitar skills and vocals. Deem often touches on themes of love on the CD. While it can get a little sappy at times, it's a solid songwriting debut. He can often be found performing at Promenade on Providence and RiverGate.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
