Time Sawyer is interested in “real people and real songs” and that’s just what the listener finds in their music – a sense of realness. Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on an entertaining show. From introspective ballads to high-energy crowd-pleasers, Time Sawyer’s songs land in that rootsy sweet spot where folk, alt-country, and rock gather for a good time.
The folk rock band’s name reflects the pull between the past and the future. The character Tom Sawyer evokes the rural background and love of home that the band shares. Time is a muse for songwriting; it’s the thread that runs through life, bringing new experiences and giving us a sense of urgency, while still connecting us with our past.
Time Sawyer has performed on the stages of some of the Southeast’s most iconic festivals, including Merlefest, Floydfest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, Rhythm n’ Blooms, Carolina in the Fall and IBMA’s Bluegrass First Class. They’ve shared bills with Langhorne Slim, Eric Krasno, John Moreland, Steep Canyon Rangers, The Wood Brothers, Susto, and many more.
The memorable lyrics and strong melodies result in songs that will stay in your head long after the music stops. Time Sawyer continues to develop a loyal and growing fan base. Whether they’re playing in an intimate listening room or a large outdoor festival, their goal is to forge a face-to-face connection with the audience so that they become friends who happen to be fans.
As their name suggests, Modern Primitives have an aware unpretentiousness, yet have shared the stage with bands such as Of Montreal, Clear Plastic Masks, Mona, Miniature Tigers, and The Melvins. They're the common man working out the wonders of life through good ol'fashioned rock'n'roll, and who in these times can't relate to opening up a cheap beer and having a few laughs?
Guitarist Travis Phillips carves intricate grooves that delicately balance raggedy unsophistication with an endearingly classic style, cleverly mimicking the duality of the iconic America plain white t-shirt he's normally seen in. Subtle and patient, drummer Phillip Gripper reins in each careening note, driving fastidiously through the dangerous, winding tracks. These days the Modern Primitives are taking their music up a notch with the acquisition of their newest member, bassist Tim Nhu. The addition of Nhu's talents has quickly provided the band with a newfound definition and platform for songs to lurch off of. With this new confidence, the Modern Prims have put out their first music video 'Lay with the Dead', a demented dance with the devil himself accented by fuzzed-out chords, sneering vocals and just the right amount of creepiness.
Post-funk and quarter-punk since 2010

Kodiak Brotherhood is a home-grown outlaw country band hailing from Concord, NC. A four-piece made up of longtime, experienced musicians who've played in (and still do play with) the likes of The New Familiars, Sugar Glyder, Solar Cat, and more. The band is a refreshing melody of organic vocals, masterful sliding guitar riffs and raucous, precise drumming -Shirley Griffith, C.I.R.F
