About the Artists
It would be a vast understatement to say that Justin Mychals’ music is a journey to simpler times. His unique style, best described as Appalachian Mountain Soul, recounts stories like those of his Daddy and Granddaddy, runnin’ moonshine in the late 1920s, to avoid working the local mines. The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin, bass) takes storytelling inspirations from long-time greats like Merle Haggard, Harry Chapin and Jim Croce.
Justin’s latest release is the new Album/CD , “Appalachian Mountain Soul”. AMS was recorded in East Tennessee at his own studio and features guests artists such as Jacob Metz, Carson Peters, Benny Wilson and Chris Jennings. He has released three albums previously: Days of Thunder (1998,) Mandolin Morning (2014) and Lilac (2018.) All of his albums were self-produced with Mandolin Morning being recorded at Justin’s former studio, Soundhouse Recording, while Lilac was recorded at Daywind Studios in Nashville. Days of Thunder was recorded at White Room Studios in Charlotte, North Carolina. Justin’s music can be heard on all major streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music. It can also be purchased in digital form from his official website.
Larry Frick, from Louisburg NC, is a singer and songwriter who has a voice and writing style that is steeped in the rich traditions of music. The traditions that weave stories and emotions into the very fabric of the songs that he writes and sings.
Larry started performing on horseback at a Rodeo in Raleigh NC and was quickly approached by the legendary Longbranch Saloon about putting a band together and playing on Friday nights. That was the beginning of a now almost 20 year career of writing, recording and performing. Larry has put out four albums, played countless shows at some of the nations biggest and best venues, bars, and festivals, and has shared the stage with some of music’s biggest names.
Making new music, preserving the history of music, and seamlessly blending the two. People may try to label it but Larry Frick is carving his own niche into the fabric of music
