HANK BARBEE & THE DUST PARADE
Since his first show at age 15, Hank Barbee hasn't stopped growing and hasn't stopped going. He's honed his skills in varied musical genres on the way to finding his own voice, and is currently bringing listeners along for the ride.
With a strong writing background and a knack for composition, Barbee is exciting audiences. If you've been following his sound you will notice this recent and eclectic morph of creativity and style. He is currently in the process of expanding his band, The Dust Parade, looking to drive their sound towards a more world music genre.
The recent addition of Jim Durham on saxophone harkens listeners to a walk through New Orleans on a steamy evening. The ever expanding stable of percussionists that accompany Dust Parade bassist Matt Henderson are lending an Afro-Cuban flair to newer bossa, soul, and surf guitar inspired creations.
REBEKAH TODD & THE ODYSSEY
Growing up in the small town of Benson, North Carolina, Rebekah Todd has been surrounded by music for as long as she can remember. At 11 years old, Rebekah's father, a musician himself, gave her a black acoustic Washburn guitar and taught her to play. Flooding the house with sounds of classic rock and folk, her father played everything from Pink Floyd to the Righteous Brothers, leading Rebekah to instantly find her musical niche somewhere between melodic soul and alternative folk rock.
Growing into her soulful voice and and musical style, the singer-songwriter started to pull inspiration from a wide range of musical genres, citing passionate singer/songwriters like Lauryn Hill and Susan Tedeschi as her inspiration and shaping the music she writes and performs today. After receiving her bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from East Carolina University in 2012, Rebekah has been devoting her life to writing and touring.
Currently based in Wilmington, North Carolina, Rebekah is a gifted performer with a natural, soulful, and effortless voice and two releases under her belt, releasing her debut EP, Forget Me Not, in 2011, first LP, Roots Bury Deep, in 2014 and most recent full length, 'Crooked Lines' in February, 2017! Playing over 170 gigs in just 12 short months, her band Rebekah Todd & The Odyssey won the On The Rise series for FloydFest 2016 and are set to play the mainstage in 2017 alongside acts such as St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Shovels and Rope, and Turkuaz.
Jesse Stockton has been a singer and songwriter for 17 years. Playing in front of a live audience at the age of 15, he has been performing ever since. His favorite color is green, his favorite food are oysters. Jesse loves reading Kerouac, Bukowski, Vonnegut, Cervantes, Dickens, Poe, and Hemingway. He spends many hours burning the night with whiskey and writing songs and poetry.
