Savannah’s American Hologram is a gutsy and eclectic power house trio comprised of Eric Britt, Britt Scott and Craig Tanner. Although americana goth pop and roots has surfaced as a description, songwriting is what defines their music. Interweaving acoustic guitars, three part harmonies, and interchanging lead singers make American Hologram a standout among Southeastern bands. The band formed after Britt’s album Greener came out in 2012, as Tanner and Scott began accompanying him live. They quickly branched into a band, with everyone bringing ideas and songs to the table. Since then the trio has become a prolific songwriting outfit. Natural chemistry as musicians and friends helped the creative process grow quickly.
American Hologram recently released a new album, Same Blue Sky.
Georgia Mountain String Band is a bluegrass project started by Jason C. Waller. It is an outlet for playing shows with different players, who all work from a central playbook of Country and Bluegrass songs. The band is a gathering of musicians from some of Georgia's best bluegrass bands — Waller, City Hotel, Smokey's Farmland Band, High Strung String Band, and I Want Whisky to name a few. The line up changes but the songs remain the same. When Georgia Mountain String Band shows up to a gig there's a lot of picking and even more grinning.
