River Whyless

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.

Swing '39

Swing ‘39 is a quartet composed of two guitars, violin and bass. Its goal is to resurrect the sound of guitarist D'jango Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grapelli in their years together in Paris just before World War II. Along with their cohorts in the quintet of the Hot Club of Paris, Django and Grapelli crafted a unique style – a mixture of American jazz and Parisian dance hall music spiced with Gypsy stylings. Often referred to as “hot club" the sound they made famous has become part of a larger genre known as “gypsy jazz”. Swing 39 plays the original compositions of D'jango and popular tunes by composers such as Cole Porter, Gershwin, and Ellington in this style.
