Birmingham natives Alec Bolton and Joseph Settine formed The Brook & The Bluff while attending Auburn University. The group’s name stems from each member’s distinct home suburb in Birmingham, Mountain Brook and Bluff Park.
Originally an acoustic duo, the pair quickly became a staple at local venues, turning heads with clean vocals and expert guitar work. Still searching for the right musicians to create a full band, the duo released “The Rough Cuts,” a 3-song acoustic project, in the fall of 2015.
In the spring of 2016, John Canada noticed the talent and potential of the duo and offered to play percussion and sing with Joseph and Alec. Soon after, he officially joined the group, expanding their sound with driving rhythm and an added voice. The vocal trio instantly locked in and started playing together consistently. After resolving to make something of this ensemble, the trio searched for a bassist to fill the bill. Rip Britton completed The Brook & The Bluff on bass in the summer of 2016.
Now fully equipped, The Brook & The Bluff is passionate about sharing their original music with Birmingham and beyond. The band is working on its first full project and actively pursuing the next step in their musical progression.
Armadilla is a four piece indie rock band with dark, erotic, pop-funk vibes established in 2015 in Asheville, North Carolina. The band is comprised of musicians Galen Stickels (piano/vocals), Gabe Smiley (guitar/bass/vox), Harrison Johnston (bass/guitar), and Hagen Johnston (drums).
