Heart of Pine

Heart of Pine Bio
Spawning from a Georgia BBQ and music festival late night jam, founding members, Steven Bagwell and Travis Richardson, discovered they had similar interests in music. Years later, with the help of Curt Spell, the two decided to try their luck at writing together and thus began the Athens based group, Heart of Pine. Some would describe their music as a mix between Americana and Country with bits of Rock and Blues fusion. With their influences ranging all over the genre map, Heart of Pine’s music has the potential to reach almost everyone. At the beginning of 2017, the band added bassist Burton Hood and has been climbing higher on the list of in demand bands ever since.

With their third European tour under the belt, three full-length albums including a fourth nearing completion, and a gravitational pull to their growing fan base down every American highway, the Vegabonds are on a musical pilgrimage to spread the gospel of pure, unadulterated New South Rock.
Some might assert that their sound is Americana, while others may consider them to be true rock ‘n’ rollers. Regardless of what fans like to call them, the Alabama-born, Nashville-bred quintet is pulling themselves up by the bootstraps just in time for 2018, forging ahead into the future by avoiding pigeon holes.
A group of five musicians with myriad influences between them, The Vegabonds are fronted by lead vocalist and songwriter Daniel Allen, with Richard Forehand (lead guitar/vocals), Paul Bruens (bass), Beau Cooper (keys/vocals), and Bryan Harris (drums) rounding out the quintet.
The Vegabonds released their critically acclaimed record, “What We’re Made Of,” with the help of Grammy-nominated producer Tom Tapley, whose portfolio includes that of Elton John and Bruce Springsteen, among others. Tapley returned to record The Vegabonds’ latest single, “Long Haired Country Boy,” now available on iTunes and Spotify.
“Long Haired Country Boy” gives listeners a taste of the upcoming album slated for early next year as they breathe new life into the Charlie Daniels Band’s country classic. Their modernized rendition of this legendary ballad pays homage to the hard-working, blue-collar lifestyle of the Deep South, but with an electrified, psychedelic intensity that only The Vegabonds can conceive. As they steadily become one of the most sought after, highly-acclaimed Southern Rock bands in music, The Vegabonds’ roots run deep, even alongside the fan base having now extended across the U.S. and Europe. Their devotion to music and their tireless tour schedule illustrates their laser-sharp focus on growing into one of the biggest names out of Nashville, while never forgetting their humble beginnings.
The Vegabonds got their start in 2009 by playing the college circuit across the Southeastern United States. Their popularity quickly burgeoned to the point that they found their fans singing along word-for-word to their first hits like “Georgia Fire” and “American Eyes.” From Ole Miss to South Carolina, students were buzzing about The Vegabonds’ authentic sound and their seemingly effortless ability to bring the house down. Through pure word of mouth, the group’s fan base grew rapidly, and the guys learned they had something distinctive with their eclectic mix of Southern Rock, Country, and earnest songwriting.
With a sound reminiscent of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers mixed with the grit and twang of the Allman Brothers Band, The Vegabonds give their fans a sensational performance with powerhouse guitar riffs and impactful songwriting night after night. Their hard work and unbridled talents have not gone unnoticed; the group has opened for such notable acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd, the late Gregg Allman, and Kid Rock, among others. Rousing performances at festivals like Peach Fest, Magnolia Fest, Sunfest, and Toadlick grew their notoriety nationwide, leading to a west coast tour that formed in-roads with the music and comedy community in Los Angeles. It’s no wonder that Live for Live Music has compared them to musical legends like My Morning Jacket and The Black Crowes, calling them “a force to be reckoned with,” complete with “gorgeous harmonies and impressive instrumental skills mak[ing] for a perfect combination.”
With their focus on growth, The Vegabonds have much in store for old and new fans alike. Upon returning from their third European tour, the band’s focus will shift to perfecting their highly-anticipated new album, slated for release in early 2018. With a new management and publicity team behind them, their New South Rock sound is destined to reach an even broader audience than ever before. The band is excited to bring in new blood to achieve their overall strategic vision.
Born in Alabama. Bred in Nashville. Seasoned by the Road. Celebrated the world over. Come let your hair down with The Vegabonds.

Daniel Allen (Lead Vocals)
Richard Forehand (Guitars/Vocals)

Magic Girl is Mary-Charlotte Young, a Southern singer-songwriter steeped in Texas Americana troubadour tradition with a punk rock edge. Magic Girl tells stories like Lucinda and Townes, songs of hard lives and experience, but with a true empathy that celebrates strength. All sung with a voice far larger than her small frame should be able to produce yet fragile enough to relate even the frailest of emotions.
Drake Freeman Band
Friday, July 12, 2019, 8:30 PM to 11:45 PM
A new rising star on the Nashville scene and native of Atlanta, GA, Drake Freeman is an accomplished singer/songwriter and musician with his debut EP released in October 2015. As a versatile performer, Drake began with playing the piano at age 4. He then became influenced by musicians such as Mike Campbell, Tom Petty, John Mayer, and Duane Allman, to name a few and decided to pick up a guitar. At age 9, he learned to play electric and acoustic guitar. Since then, he has taught himself just about anything with strings such as bass, mandolin, banjo, and was classically trained on the viola. He sticks to his roots of the South and fuses his love of Rock N' Roll to create a Southern Rock experience similar to that of the Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Blackberry Smoke
