The Lively Exchange is throwback Americana for the modern listener. Their music pays respect to the likes of The Band, Bruce Springsteen, and Bob Dylan. With those artists in mind, their aim is to bring Rock 'N Roll back to the mainstream music culture. These four musicians prove Rock 'N Roll is not dead but quite lively.

The Lively Exchange is a four piece band featuring Andrew Varson on guitar/vocals, Dustin Merkle on drums/vocals, Cameron Pickup on fiddle, and Ethan Bruns on bass/piano. With roots from Kentucky to Georgia, southern soul oozes from each strum, pluck, and kick.

Hopkins also plays fiddle, and is the band’s primary songwriter. Bridges, Hopkins, and Clontz have been together as part of the band since 2009, with Coates joining them in 2011. All of the band members originally hail from western Virginia and moved together to the Atlanta area last year to pursue their musical ambitions. The band has established a great reputation and solid local following with their groovy rock-jam style of Americana, featuring great vocal harmonies and sizzling string work throughout.
