Chris Wilcox is a singer songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD and having lived five years in Charleston, SC, Chris’s musical influence has no boundaries. His upcoming release, “Legacy”, displays his unique sound, blending his East Coast roots with his Southern experience as an artist. This release is a reborn project for Wilcox as the songs outline a lot the last few years of his life. From the passing of his father, to leaving Charleston for Nashville, Wilcox holds nothing back in his most honest work yet. The tracks heard "Legacy" offer Wilcox as a detailed story teller, intertwining his education in poetry with both personal and imaginative stories to produce a body of work that displays his inherent talent as a songwriter.
Since recording Legacy, Wilcox has explored the recording process in Charlestons Coast Records Studio with a live band. Chris Wilcox & the Boys bring a unique sound to his Americana Rock, and they're hitting the road this summer with dates across the East Coast.

Jeff Spirko's musical journey began at the young age of 3 years old in Syracuse, NY, where he began studying the classical violin. While growing up, with help from a very musical family, Jeff played in orchestras, sang in choirs, and performed in musical theater productions. In high school, he earned All- New York State honors as both a violinist and a vocalist.
In addition to a rich musical background, athletics were just as much a part of everyday life growing up. In high school, Jeff was the captain of both the varsity lacrosse and soccer teams, earning All- New York State honors in lacrosse. After high school, Jeff attended Cornell University and was a member of the Varsity Men's Lacrosse team until a knee injury ultimately ended his athletic career.
It was in the wake of this injury that his path changed course. Learning to play the guitar, and perform around local bars, Jeff re-discovered his passion for music, both writing and performing. Honing his skills, he set out for Atlanta, GA after graduation, in search of a music career.
With a van packed and his guitar and violin in the back seat, Jeff dove into the Georgia music scene as a songwriter/multi-instrumentalist (violin/guitar/mandolin/piano/banjo), playing with dozens of bands over many years, and sharing the stage with acts such as ZZ Top, Styx, Heart, Foreigner, Corey Smith, Love & Theft, Joe Nichols, among many others. In 2014, Jeff was voted 'Instrumentalist of the Year' by the Atlanta, GA, publication Creative Loafing.
In his new project, SPIRKO, Jeff steps from the side of the stage to the front, bringing with him an incredibly dynamic live show, catchy radio-friendly songs, and unique versatility as a performer.
