The name Greg Humphreys should be familiar to even casual observers of the North Carolina music scene for the last 20 years. A native of Winston-Salem and longtime resident of the Triangle, the soulful singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist founded such venerable outfits as funk/alt. soul standouts Hobex and indie pop rockers Dillon Fence before releasing a string of stellar, mostly acoustic albums.

Now based in Brooklyn, NY, Humphreys has recently to group play with his new Electric Trio featuring bassist Matt Brandau and drummer Keith Robinson. The band’s Cosmic Irony Spring Tour will feature songs from two new releases; the band’s Rock at Live Wood, and the Cosmic Irony EP recorded with Brandau.

In addition to his already full recording and touring efforts, Humphreys also recently journeyed to Atlanta for some writing and recording sessions with famed Stax soul legend William Bell, author of “You Don’t Miss Your Water” and other classics.

Led by choir director/bassist/vocalist Danny Whittington, Boone’s Junaluska Gospel Choir has long been one of the High Country’s most celebrated musical ensembles. Performing each Sunday morning at the Mennonite Brethren Church (located in the town’s historic Junaluska community, also known as “The Hill”), the choir’s uplifting, energetic brand of black gospel features elements of soul, rock, R&B, country and more.

In addition to playing numerous church functions throughout the region, the Junaluska Gospel Choir has performed at MerleFest and Mountain Home Music and released a new album entitled Rough Side Of The Mountain in 2014.###
