Stephanie Morgan (Formerly stephaniesĭd)
Stephanie Morgan is a singer/songwriter as well as an actor for voice and screen. She also has a fancy psychology-oriented degree and spent a bunch of time working with all kinds of people. She likes looking under things.

Steph fronted a band called stephaniesĭd for 13 years. Stephaniesĭd disbanded in May, 2016 with a sold-out last show at the beautiful Diana Wortham Theatre in Steph's hometown of Asheville, but Steph still makes music for “the darkness in you that's trying to find the light.” Or you could call it "unabashed soul music for seekers", or just "catchy, wrenching pop music", or something of that nature. Increasingly, she's getting more into layering harmonies, playing with textures from different genres of music, and getting downright groovy with the rhythm section.

Her band, whatever configuration, possesses all the proper tools needed to create wonderful live shows and beautiful recordings. The music explores both the melancholy and triumph of human life and love, and she chooses players with big skills, minds and hearts, so they tend to be equally faithful stewards of large, intoxicating swells and infectious, danceable grooves. Recordings affix crunchy guitars, weepy synthesizers, vibraphone lines, thick bass notes, horns, strings, and Steph's coquettish, curly female vocals. The live show is unabashed energy funneled through an Iowa-birthed and Texas-raised former gymnast.

Steph spends a lot of time in NYC and other pet cities, and also has deep roots in her chosen incubator, Asheville, NC, a city widely known for its musical soul, where stephaniesĭd sits in the Hall of Fame as "Best Rock Band" in the city's reputable Mountain Xpress poll.

Stephaniesĭd had songs featured on Showtime's "Nurse Jackie", NPR's "World Cafe" and "All Songs Considered", Team Ibex's "The Red Helmet", and The Weather Channel, and on numerous compilations. Steph's music was the subject of a rock ballet in Asheville, NC, and she founded the very first multi-venue music festival in Asheville, back in 2007, called POPAsheville.

Steph's debut solo album, a transitional release featuring songs worked up by stephaniesĭd prior to its dissolution and produced by Steph and Spacebomb Records in Richmond, VA, will release sometime in spring 2017.
Hank and Cupcakes
Flush with simmering sexuality and irresistible dance pulse, Hank & Cupcakes are the coalescence of rock without guitars, pop without synthesizers, everything you would NOT expect them to be. Named in reference to notorious Charles ‘Hank’ Bukowski and one of his lovers ‘Cupcakes’, this Brooklyn based duo by way of Tel Aviv Israel & Melbourne Australia defy modern rock-pop expectations with their full luscious sound, breathtaking stage personas and the brutal honesty with which they play.

Pedal board magician Hank commands an army of pedals with his bass guitar while powerhouse vocalist/drummer Cupcakes dominates the drums standing up (!) while belting out emotive and groove filled vocals, making it difficult to believe there are only two people on stage. With a recklessness reminiscent of Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, an early RHCP rawness, a fun-punk Ting Tings vibe and a ‘The Kills’ raw rock sex appeal, Hank & Cupcakes are the embodiment of all of those, creating a new hybrid of music motivated by true freedom and boundless limits.

Hailed by MTV as a “Fresh new artist with an infectious blend of electro pop goodness” by Paste Magazine as “Irresistibly Danceable” and as having a “Funky Fresh Sound” by the New York Post, the powerful duo are now honing their explosive live performances in front of audiences as they tour the country in support of their third album ‘CHEAP THRILL’.
Abby the Spoon Lady
Abby the Spoon Lady is one of very few professional spoon players in the United States, and has been a professional street performer for over a decade. Abby studied American folk percussion, music, and folklore while traveling the United States by foot and rail. Now an internationally known street performer, she plays with some of Asheville’s finest local and visiting performers at festivals, within venues, and right on the sidewalk. Along with finding her within various horror and short films, you can watch interviews with Abby in such documentaries as Nashville 2012, and also Buskin’ Blues, about the world-class street performing scene in Asheville, NC. She is currently President of the Asheville Buskers Collective.
