Born in Anchorage, Alaska, 29-year-old Hope Griffin was literally
born into music. Surrounded by a musical family, she began singing and
performing when she was very young. Hope first got turned onto the idea
of writing her own music when she received a guitar at age 17. She
attended Carson-Newman University and went on to receive a Bachelor’s
degree in classical voice. It was there that her true flair for
songwriting developed. Hope’s drive to perform her original works was
launched after winning a songwriters contest in college in 2007. She
eventually moved to Asheville, North Carolina where she began
introducing her angelic vocals and folky lyrics into the music scene.
Since her time in Asheville, Hope has entered and won several
singer/songwriter contests, including 2nd place of hundreds to open for
Dave Barnes. In 2012, her song “Hanging In The Balance” made radio play.
She has been in newspapers such as the Herald-Journal & The Mountain
Express, appeared on WNC television, and interviewed with several radio
stations. Her “in your-face” style of ballad writing, as well as her
reputation for playing songs that span through the decades has made her
popular amongst a wide range of age groups.
Hope continues to wow audiences and stretch the musical boundaries
by switching from soulful ballads to high-energy blues with ease. Her
brand new EP entitled “Say What You Will” released on February 6th, 2015
to a sold out show at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall in Asheville, NC.
Each song on the album offers a diverse style and hook worthy of its
subject matter, but all are linked with Hope’s angelic voice, catchy
beats, and poignant imagery. This is the album that fans of folk music
and singer-songwriters have been waiting for since Hope first began
mesmerizing her audiences, and it is a perfect exhibition of her
Hope can now be seen touring with her cellist JamieLeigh at many
venues throughout the Southeast US, in states including North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, & Alabama. With the release of her
new EP, she plans on taking her music even further for the Spring and
Summer of 2015. If you’re in the area, do yourself a favor and come see
her play. Her free spirited personality and ability to tell beautiful
stories through song make her a true force to be reckoned with – and a
hard excuse to miss!

Born and raised in Louisville, Ky., Carrie has been playing piano since age 7. She moved to “higher ground” in 2004, and has been a denizen of local clubs and venues in and around western N.C. for a decade. Music has always been part of her life, from improvisational and classical piano study, to choirs and musicals. Morrison is known for melodically strong songs with personal, pithy lyrics. She has recorded and performed with many local artists: the late Tom Rogers, Steve Whiteside, Ellen Trnka, Andrew Thelston, Garry Segal, Tom Fisch, and the late Terry Wetton, to name a few. Her EP “Carolina Blonde,” produced by Wetton (of Hogrock Mountain Music) in 2013, is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby. Morrison is also on Pandora Radio since 2015. Her new CD, “Miles and Miles,” is due for release in late summer 2017, and is being produced by Chris Rosser (Hollow Reed Arts Studio) of award-winning ensemble Free Planet Radio. Sharing her music is Carrie’s passion, and she is grateful to be able to do so. “I write songs because music is our refuge, the place where our souls are never alone.”

2016 finds Eric Congdon further cementing his reputation as one of the Asheville regions most engaging and talented artists. From mind blowing live performances and ground breaking music video projects, to his ongoing charitable efforts supporting Autism, Eric always brings an energy and creativity to any project he is involved with.
His live show is a bouillabaisse of influences, ideas, and improvisation. You’ll hear sounds from Appalachia all the way to Arabia, and from Bombay to Britain. Great guitarists from Tony Rice to Jimmy Page, Chet Atkins and Duane Allman. Not to mention Eric’s interpretations of Classic songs played on his Irish Bouzouki that simply have to be seen to be believed. You never know what song or even what instrument he will play next.
Eric has taken advantage of living in one of the most picturesque and beautiful areas of the USA by creating his ground breaking HIKING JAMS video series. Featuring some of the most scenic waterfalls and vistas in WNC, Eric has fused live music and improvisation against the breathtaking backdrop of the area’s natural beauty. His video series was featured in Mountain Express. More episodes of the series are in production.
Over the past 7 years, Eric has helped raise over 100,000 dollars for Autism. From supporting the St Gerard House early intervention center in Hendersonville, to putting on Festivals to help the Autism Science Foundation and other organizations, Eric’s passion to help stems from his own experiences raising his daughter with Autism. He is committed to further educating people and raising awareness about the disorder, in addition to spreading hope through his music to those dealing with it.
