    With two full length releases under his belt, a festival all his own, and his band’s 10 year anniversary approaching, it’s hard to believe that songwriter, guitar prodigy, and event producer Andrew Scotchie hasn’t even hit 30. On his latest studio venture, the Asheville, NC native packs a punch with six new tracks that boast some of the most electrifying arrangements you’ll hear all year.
     
    On the heels of his 2018 LP release “Family Dynamo,” Scotchie is set to unveil his most mature and sonically diverse collection entitled “Everyone Everywhere” on Friday, June 26. With heavy themes like corporate greed and inequality prominently featured in the condemnatory track “Funny Money,” more playful tunes like the sweet retro-rock inspired “Natural Romantic” offer listeners a much needed respite from thinking about these turbulent times. An anthem in its own rite, leading single “Stepping Stone” sets the stage for a short yet pungent magical mystery ride of psychedelia, funk, and jam-adjacent rock that is nothing short of enrapturing. The standout “Fear Mongers,” starts with a hardy sample of Charlie Chaplin’s famed “The Great Dictator” speech (which required official approval from the late filmmaker’s rights-holding office in Paris), declaring that “the misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed” and segues perfectly with Scotchie’s “don’t wait / don’t hesitate / ‘cause the poor man can’t give what the rich man always takes,” artfully encapsulating the current climate.
     
    With such timely social commentary embedded into every track, the new EP could easily be mistaken for a response to the ongoing pandemic, though the album was actually recorded months prior. Still, Scotchie welcomes the serendipity, and encourages his listeners to adopt their own takes on the lyrics, especially when they can be utilized to reclaim hope. Scotchie concludes the album with a universal offering in the title track “Everyone Everywhere,” imploring "Even if you feel lonely / when this world is unkind / call on me, I'm sure you'll find / even when you feel you got nothing / everyone everywhere's got something.

    Brady Jacquin is a singer-songwriter from Asheville, North Carolina. Drawing from influences like Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons, and Matt Corby, his band's unorthodox style fuses acoustic and electric guitars, pianos, different percussion types, extensive harmonies, intricate finger picking, and pretty much anything else he can get his hands on! He extends this fresh approach to his lyrics as the imagery serves to lose the listener in his world (a strange world, though it may be)!

Indie Music

Packed with a ton of great Indie music and candid interviews with the musicians who write it, WNC Original Music sounds like a local radio station. Often from local coffee shops, Ron Taylor selects a fine bunch of talent. Some of the music can sound a little harsh because of DIY recording or because it was recorded live but it's part of the Indie music charm and the musicians are quite good. Well written music is well written music no matter how it sounds. The interviews are quieter then the music and get lost if you're listening in a noisy place. At about the halfway point, alot of the episodes have a funny fake commercial. Satirical ads for wine, "Hip Recruiter" instead of zip recruiter and dollar shave club break up the episode and gives a little lift to the often laid back, relaxing vibe of the show.
