Sam Burchfield w/ Nathan Angelo and Chris Ayer
With an honest voice, a band of buddies, and a fancy hat; Sam Burchfield has discovered something special in his musical journey. His latest EP, Unarmored, digs a few layers deeper into a genre-crossing career that has only just begun. From folk, to funk, to southern soul — Sam and his band of 'Scoundrels' capture it all. The rowdy crew puts on a show that is electrifyingly entertaining and yet full of Burchfield's lyrical honesty and depth.
“…Burchfield’s music is soulful. That is the perfect word for it. It doesn’t just describe his genre – it describes the heart of the artist himself…”
-Emily McBride - VINYL MAG
After cutting his teeth in the indie-music hub of Athens, GA, Sam planted new roots in the nation’s R&B capital of Atlanta. Sam and The Scoundrels have now made ripples in the southeast, and continue to grow a loyal fanbase with their passion for music and camaraderie for each other.
In the ever-changing landscape of modern pop, Nathan Angelo shines as a refreshing alternative, embracing the classic elements of popular music and celebrating the backbeat of American tradition. As the revival of music in the 60’s and 70’s brought together the heritage of the Great American songbook, the flair of jazz and heartache of the Delta blues, Angelo integrates these forms into his own music with great ease and delight. For the past decade, Angelo has captivated audiences across the country with his high-spirited live show and captured the imagination of a loyal following through prolific songwriting, independently selling over 40,000 albums along the way.
Chris Ayer is an artist that has both a rawness of performance and a sense of poetic lyricism that, when combined, create something socially urgent and uniquely timeless. Between his sharp pop sensibility and his strong heritage in the American singer-songwriter tradition, the Los Angeles-based Ayer continues to defy genres and inspire generations.
Born in California, and raised in Virginia, Chris has built a reputation for uplifting and emotive solo shows in and around New York City’s Lower East Side, as well as inspiring collaborations with other up-coming artists – including longtime tour-mate Matt Simons (‘Catch & Release’, ‘With You’) and most recently with acclaimed DJ and producer Palm Trees (‘Casanova’, ‘You Were the One’
