One of the country's most intriguing indie folk bands, Asheville-based River Whyless, has a brand new release Kindness, A Rebel, and they recently stopped by our studios to talk about it, and to play some songs from the album. We'll listen to that interview and performance on the next Studio B Rewind, plus hear a session with the Raleigh roots rock band Urban Soil, who were in the area for a show in Hendersonville.

"Penetrative & excitingly melodic ... Intimate literate lyrics & velvet vocals," says Rolling Stone about Clarence, and we agree. This prolific singer/songwriter originally from Ohio consistently delivers quality albums, and this year's Passionate Kind is no exception. He plays The Grey Eagle in Asheville Tuesday night.

Among the new-to-us names of 2018 for WNCW's music roster is Hannah Gill, a 20-year-old singer mostly from Maryland and NYC (though born in NC), with a booming voice and nice blend of soul, blues, and 70's-inspired lo-fi pop. Let's get to know her and her duomate (guitarist/songwriter/arranger Brad Hammonds) Thursday afternoon before their show at Ambrose West in West Asheville that evening.
