Featuring Singer-Songwriters:

Chad Jordan
Residing in the Swannanoa valley of western North Carolina. Crafting an ever growing list of songs since the mid 90s and being in a handful of bands along the way, he is currently embarking on a solo journey showcasing his introspective acoustic indie-folk material. The omnipresent theme of many of his songs is constant drive to evolve and escape the mundane of modern society. However, sprinkled in are a few more light-hearted songs such as the horticulturally educational "How to Grow Tomatoes" song. You can check Chad's recent two-part interview out on the "WNC Original Music" podcast to learn more about his material.

Nate Straffon
Grew up around the world, and currently lives in Asheville. Writing his first song at 8, he has developed into a prolific lyricist and songwriter. His playing style is both gentle and, at times, raw: comfortable easy-listening with an edge. What's the edge? Songs written about true events, real emotions, and gripping stories. Using his voice and guitar to convey it all, he aims to entertain, and, if possible, move.

Matt Sellars
Lives and breathes southern music and culture. They are the driving forces that keep him moving forward day after day. For fans of folk, Americana, country, bluegrass and the like, Matt Sellars is worth a listen.

After years of honing his craft in front of audiences in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee and throughout the south, Matt stepped in to the studio to make his first recorded effort, 2013’s This Side of the Mississippi. The recordings on this album reflect the array of regional influences Matt has absorbed over the years. His style rings true to the music he loves and devotes himself to; the sounds of classic artists like Doc Watson and John Prine marry seamlessly with contemporary favorites like Justin Townes Earle and Tim O'Brien.

Listeners looking for a new artist to enjoy are sure to get their fix from Matt Sellars. There is plenty of heart and soul in Matt’s music, interlaced with his characteristic lightheartedness. Good songwriting always comes from a place of passion and inspiration, and these qualities are inherent in this latest collection of original songs.
