Jasper Coal
Jasper Coal
Celtic folk-punk band from Birmingham AL

More an event than a show, Jasper Coal's unique fusion of folk-punk and Celtic music draws influence from popular Celtic punk rock artists such as The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, and Flogging Molly to more traditional artists from Ireland and Scotland such as the Tannahill Weavers, Planxty, and The Bothy Band. But the band's skilled musicians allow them to occupy an exclusive niche. Jasper Coal confidently blurs the boundaries between the modern and the traditional, transitioning comfortably between musical subgenres. They seamlessly blend the raw, uninhibited aggression of the folk-punk genre with authentic yet explosive renditions of traditional Celtic tunes.

Zach Austin and Cheyloe Martin

We're Zach + Cheyloe from Birmingham, AL. We've loved music since we were very young and now as adults we enjoy making it even more. Our voices and our songwriting are both very unique and different, yet they come together like two puzzle pieces. We aim to be not just songwriters but storytellers also. Simple and direct, we rarely, if ever, stray into the abstract or the realm of music you "just have to get." We want you to know that whatever lonesome trail you're traveling, we've been there too, friend. And we have the dust on our boots and the songs in our souls to prove it.

We've been teamed up since early 2013, Cheyloe having previously been a solo artist and Zach the creative lead/singer of Calling Station. We're only two people but we have the time of our lives playing together and creating a ruckus in general and we hope that you'll come along with us.

We regularly participate in the Bluebird Cafe's (Nashville) Sunday Night Writers nights, having passed the audition in 2012. We were the winners of the 1st and 2nd ASPA Singer Songwriter competition; 1 of the 50 chosen from 2,000+ artists to compete in the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam Southern Original contest. 2nd Place in WorkPlay's Singer/Songwriter Series contest. Most recently we are the Summer 2014 winners of Moonlight on the Mountain Grand Open Mic Playoff contest. We won the local portion of the Texaco Country Showdown in May and will be competing at State this October.
