Indigo De Souza is a multifaceted artist and band based in Asheville, North Carolina. The band is fronted by Indigo as lead singer and guitarist, and backed by Owen Stone (bass), Ethan Baechtold (guitar), and ​Jake Lenderman (drums)​. Encouraged and supported by her mother, Kimberly Oberhammer, Indigo began writing music when she was 9 years old and quickly began to embody her art, taking to the stage at age 11. Since then, she’s been writing heart-wrenching lyrics descriptive and expressive of her own internal landscape’s interaction with the power of interpersonal relationships- from caregivers to romantic interests. This is all highlighted in the band’s first full album, ​I Love My Mom, ​recorded by Colin Miller in 2018. Both the music and her artful lines captivate listeners and provide solidarity in the pain and beauty felt in the world, providing an intimate and powerful listening experience. After her performance in early 2019, Audiotree Live described the 22 year old as a, “punky indie pop songwriter whose eloquent, passionate persona sits at the forefront of her snarky tunes. She transfixes you with unabashed, meaningful stories put to effortlessly catchy hooks and explosive instrumentation.” Outside of the indie pop band, Indigo also fronts a neo-soul project, Icky Bricketts, with Ethan Baechtold. Ethan and Indigo have co-written these songs and lovingly refer to the project as their “brain-child”. Icky Bricketts began as a recording project, but has recently grown to include a dynamic and energizing live band. The extensive differences between these two projects illuminate the vast talent of the members of this group, as well as the versatility of Indigo’s writing. Indigo De Souza and Icky Bricketts plan to release new music in the near future. Links: Facebook | Instagram

The Jacks

August 30 @ 8:00 pm - August 31 @ 12:00 am
Cat’s Cradle Back Room, 300 E Main St.
Carrboro, NC 27510 United States
$10

When it comes to playing rock & roll, The Jacks simply don’t have a choice. “It’s what we listen to, it’s what we play,” bassist Scott Stone says, “and when you stick four guys like us in a garage with instruments, it’s just the kind of music we are going to make.” You can hear a primal energy coursing through vocalist-guitarist Jonny Stanback’s gritty howl on “Walk Away,” the lead single from their debut self-titled EP and the rest of the guys match his excitement with driving riffs and infectious melodies. It’s an electric charge that surges through each of the record’s five tracks, guiding Stanback, Stone, lead guitarist Thomas Hunter and drummer Josh Roossin when they play together. “We’re trying to push the boundaries of the rock & roll genre by incorporating modern elements, but still keeping the core structure of a four-piece band,” Stanback says. “We are creating a sound you’ve never heard before, but feels familiar.” The way they see it, playing rock at a time when pop and hip-hop are dominating the charts is an act of defiance. If any band is poised to help bring authenticity back to rock & roll, it’s The Jacks. The quartet has been making a steady ascent since forming in Los Angeles in the summer of 2016, selling out gigs at legendary hometown venues like the Troubadour, Roxy and Viper Room, supporting legends like the Doors’ Robby Krieger (who told them personally that he liked their music) and playing major rock festivals like Aftershock and Sonic Temple. At one gig, they ran into John Fogerty who told them, “It’s cool to see some rock & roll again.” Now the group has recorded their first EP with producer Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Faith No More) at Los Angeles’ famed Sunset Sound Recorders. But even though they’ve been playing together for only a couple of years, rock has been The Jacks’ lifeblood for as long as they can remember. As Wallace declares, “The Jacks deliver up lean, rugged rock & roll with songs that feel like instant classics that make you want to move, with earworm hooks and melodies that will have you kinda upset when you find yourself unintentionally and inappropriately humming their songs at work, in church, in court, or at wakes. If the Strokes, Cage the Elephant, and the Stones had an equally talented, but more handsome baby, it would be named The Jacks!” Links: Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | SoundCloud | Spotify | YouTube
