Mac Leaphart keeps it ragged in all the right places by delivering scrappy, honky tonk rock & roll with his three piece band, aptly called My Ragged Company. Based out of Nashville, Leaphart’s live sound developed over years of playing in bars around the southeast. His first album, “Line, rope, etc.” was released in 2008, and was named one of the best albums of the year by Charleston City Paper. In his latest release, “Low in the Saddle, Long in the Tooth,” Leaphart showcases his talent by intertwining witty and heartfelt lyrics into raw, one take recordings; a raw honesty that follows him on stage in his live performances.
Luke Cunningham has been hailed as “a welcomed reminder of what songwriters used to be.” The Charleston based songwriter is no stranger to performing. Cunningham has toured alongside big names such as The Fray, Gin Blossoms and Donovon Frankenreiter. However, what really caused music fans to notice Cunningham was the release of his solo album Heart Pressure in 2012. Cunningham uses his emotionally-charged rock/Americana style of music to tell a story, bringing the focus of songwriting back to ‘the song’ itself. His incredible lyricism mixed with his everlasting energy on stage make his live performances unforgettable.
