Of Good Nature

Charlotte NC alt-rockers, Of Good Nature, have built a strong start to 2018 with the quick attention to their newly released music, along with a steady wave of tour dates. Their fusion-friendly approach and openness to explore a range of styles has lead to a highly accessible sound which has recently spread like wildfire across festivals, cruises, blogs, and radio stations. “Take Me Anywhere” has been featured on Sirius XM’s The Pulse and is currently streamed on a handful of popular Spotify playlists including Reggae Summer Beach (43k subscribers). Three additional singles are set for release this Spring and Summer. 

Fresh off their second appearance aboard Train’s Sail Across The Sun Cruise, as well as the recent headline at Jacksonville Beach’s Salt Life Festival, the band has also opened for top-tier headliners Sublime with Rome, Slightly Stoopid, Dirty Heads, George Clinton, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Gym Class Heroes, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Blues Traveler, Common Kings, Steel Pulse, and many more. They’ve also received recognition for their past studio work, seeing their debut album, Just Add Water, won Indie-Ville’s Reggae Album of the Year and sophomore album Life Worth Livin, debuted at #5 on iTunes Reggae Albums Charts.

One of the hardest working bands in the nation, the group’s seemingly never-ending tour schedule continues with the announcement of the “Take Me Anywhere” tour, celebrating the success of their recording collaborations with Danny Kalb (Beck, Ben Harper, Foster the People, The Movement) at White Star Sound in Charlottesville VA.

Listen to “Take Me Anywhere” now! 

Sundrop Rise

Sundrop Rise is a collaboration of five unique songwriters and instrumentalists creating an eclectic sound accessible to a wide range of audiences. Whether it's their uplifting lyrical messages, the soulful pipes of lead vocalist/percussionist Tyler Dattmore, or the virtuosity of multi-instrumentalist Dan Blumenthal, the band members have continued to draw a crowd of followers since planting their roots in CNY. Expect to hear influences of soul, funk, pop, classic rock, and reggae as you move your feet or sit back and enjoy.

 

Spanning across CNY and the Finger Lakes region, they have shared the stage with many great bands including Root Shock, Barroom Philosophers, The Spring Street Family Band, Big Mean Sound Machine, and Rusted Root.
