REBEKAH TODD & THE ODYSSEY – Greenville, NC
Rebekah Todd is a folk/blues artist from the small town of Benson, NC and has been singing since she learned to walk. After pursuing her art degree at East Carolina University, she toured hundreds of shows around the states as a solo artist. She currently works as Rebekah Todd & The Odyssey which consists of a 5 piece including: William Seymour- Bass, Daniel Fields- Electric Guitar, Joe Macphail- Keys, Dru Cannady- Drums. In 2014, Rebekah released her first full length album, “Roots Bury Deep” and played over 130 shows up and down the east coast of the U.S. She recently moved to Wilmington where she has been focusing on writing, painting and conjuring up new lyrics for her next album to be released in late 2016. Rebekah’s influences range from Lauryn Hill to Susan Tedeschi allowing her to create smooth melodies dipped in a raspy energy that tends to swallow the crowd whole.
THE GENUINE – Winston-Salem
Some years ago, The Genuine (jen-you-win) was born when husband and wife Matthew Allivato and Katelyn Allivato née Brouwer wrote their first song together entitled “The Spinning.” In August of 2012, Devin Forkel added percussion during the recording of their first EP “Our Woodgrain Hearts.” Not long thereafter, The Genuine grew again with the addition of Gunnar Nagle on guitar and vocals completing the band. The Genuine came together through a shared love for life and music and we look forward to sharing that with every person we meet. We don’t play music to live, we live to play music, that is our sincerity. We will bend and grow with every song we sing.
