The Cheeksters
The Cheeksters were formed in 1990 soon after Mark and Shannon met by chance on a train in London, England. Mark hails from the UK, while Shannon was born and raised in Tennessee.
They started performing music together as a duo with Mark on guitar and vocals and Shannon playing bass guitar. They soon released their debut album “ Stranger Things Have Happened “ in 1992, followed by “ Hey, What’s Your Style ? “ in 1994. The couple relocated to Nashville in 1996 and began working with producer Brent Little at his all analog studio Cream Puff Recorders. So far they have recorded four critically acclaimed albums at Cream Puff - “ Skating On The Cusp “ ( 1999 ) , “ Nineteen Sixty Five “ ( 2005 ) , “ Movers and Shakers “ ( 2007 ) , “ The Golden Birds “ ( 2011 ) – and are currently hard at work on a new record.
Over the years The Cheeksters have performed extensively in the SouthEast US, as well as showcasing their talents in NYC and London. Their songs have been recently placed with the NFL and Coca-Cola for commercial use, gaining them wide exposure and new fans.
The Cheeksters combine the best of what made music great in the 1960’s with a winning, fresh pop approach that delights audiences. In the studio the group has produced six albums of timeless, tuneful, terrific pop that has real staying power. Onstage the versatile four-piece band turns out its straightforward catchy pop confections, bringing to mind a swirling variety of influences : Memphis soul, Carnaby Street pop, swampy rhythm and blues, and more. They somehow manage to channel Burt Bacharach / Hal David pop, Dusty Springfield’s diva soul, T-Rex’s manic boogie and the pomp of David Bowie often in the same song without sounding derivative.
The current line-up has performed together for the past seven years and is made up of Mark Casson ( vocals, guitar, piano ) , Shannon Hines Casson ( vocals, bass guitar ) , Jay Moye ( piano, guitar ) and Mike Baker ( drums ).
Many A Ship
Many a Ship is an indie-folk-rock band with deep roots in the mountains of Western North Carolina. The band formed in the summer of 2017 when music duo Vickie Burick (guitar, vocals) and Sam Brinkley (drums, vocals) joined forces with Josh Gibbs (lap steel) and Andy Gibbon (bass). Many a Ship features original songs by Burick, brought to fruition through the talent and creativity of Brinkley, Gibbs, and Gibbon. Collectively their music is a sea of stories about life, love, heartache, truth, friendship, despair and hope. "Many a Ship have set sail on these waters, many a ship yet to be".

"many a ship"
last night in our rocking chairs
under stars
clouds pushing up like waves
in the deep blue sea
each time tilting back
hearts open to the sky
with music sounding from the
wooden slats beneath
lifting like fireflies, like sparks from a flame
rising into the air
one star the port
another the bow
urging the clouds into waves
of the sea
many a ship have set sail in these waters
many a ship yet to be
