Biography
The Billyfolks are a Folk, Rock, Jazz mixture throwing in any other genre that strikes the right chord with the band members at the particular moment of musical creation.

As the music grew so did the band picking up 2 new member Kenny Weiss on guitar and Davis Cahill on drums. With a full line up excluding a bassist they started to play bigger and better shows and write more and more music of different genres and topic to be included on their upcoming album “Folk Yeah” set to be released in the summer of 2013.

Biography
The locally established band, Bear With Me, has taken Greensboro, North Carolina’s musical atmosphere by storm. The band’s amiable attitudes and ambition promote a positive impact on the local music scene. Their eclectic alt rock sound is akin to bands such as Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, and The Killers. The four piece ensemble started back in May 2012, and consists of techy and bassist Jonathan Parker, back-up vocalist and hard-hitting drummer, Ralph Butcher, the charming lead guitarist Carter Harris, and vigorous-voiced Joe Davis. Having released a four song EP back in April of 2013, Bear With Me strives to produce new, original tracks and is gearing up to release new singles in the up-coming months. Bear With Me appeals to fans with their inclusive music videos and opportunities to win free tickets to their shows, where they have played with bands such as The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Jonas Sees in Color, Unifier, and Lions & Liars. Not shy of the lime light, Bear With Me crushed competition at the local Greensboro venue The Blind Tiger’s Battle of the Bands back in August 2013, and had their logo and faces featured on Nationwide’s #17 Tanner Berryhill’s car in October 2013. Bear With Me continues to invigorate the local scene and plans on achieving success at what they love to do- rock out. - K.M.
