Empty Atlas
Empty Atlas
Indie Rock from Brandon MS

Mississippi is a state known for its storytellers. That certainly applies to its rich history of groundbreaking musicians, but not all of these fall in the realms of roots genres like blues and Americana, and not all of them are in the past.

Formed in central Mississippi in 2014, independent act Empty Atlas packs poignant narratives of personal growth and life experiences into intensely catchy and gripping melodic indie-rock music.

The band has shared the stage with national touring acts such as Broadside, Secret Stuff, Cardinal Sons, Ivadell, Hodera and Young Natives, and worked with producers such as Joe Causey (Colony House, Steven Curtis Chapman) and Eric Woolard (For a Season, Courier).

Lyricist and vocalist Micah Smith fronts the outfit, which released its debut full-length album, “Hestia,” in December 2016, shortly before bassist Alex Ingram, guitarist Brennan Michael White and drummer Bobby Hansford joined the group.

Smith began writing “Hestia,” a follow-up to Empty Atlas’s 2014 double-EP, “Anniversary,” shortly after he and his wife married and moved into their first house, which inspired the central theme of the album – home, and what that concept can mean to others. However, “Hestia” steers clear of love songs entirely, opting instead for stories of self-discovery and human connection.

Empty Atlas is currently performing throughout their state and the region to promote the album, while also preparing new material for a sophomore full-length.

Little Stranger
Little Stranger
Alternative/Hip Hop from Philadelphia PA

Little Stranger is an alternative/hip-hop duo born in Philadelphia, PA and transplanted to Charleston, SC. John Shields and Kevin Shields (of no known relation) comprise the charismatic two-piece as an "interchangeable, indispensable pair in limbo between rapper and singer-songwriter." 2015 saw the band's formation followed quickly by their first full length release, Buddha the Beast.Recorded in Philadelphia and Charleston, Buddha the Beast offers a "mashup of electronic beats, surf-ready sounds, and hip-hop…each song is an experience all its own."

What started as a side-project quickly moved into the forefront as the duo's chemistry on stage and in the studio sparked a unified vision. Prior to Little Stranger, both Shields and Shields fronted their own bands that would go on to share the stage with other notable acts such as Slightly Stoopid, Del the Funky Homosapien, Steel Pulse, Grace Potter, The Heavy Pets, and John Brown's Body. With years of on-stage experience between them, Little Stranger bring an energy and freestyle approach to each live show, paying mind to the importance of keeping every performance fresh and unique.

With influences from artists such as Beck, Gorillaz, and Outkast, Little Stranger combine melodic songwriting with hip-hop-inspired lyricism and production, creating a sound that slips into your subconscious after one listen!
