SHILOH HILL (Winston-Salem, NC):
Layering traditional folk instruments over a rock band rhythm section, Shiloh Hill brings a smooth and infectious energy to the scene. The dance-worthy grooves mingle with hometown mandolin, turning the stage into a front porch, where front man Nick Hofstetter and his wife Mamie weave stories in harmony. Their winsome, family-band style ensures great fun and even better friends.
Shiloh Hill is a band that not only understands their roots but also understands how to create a sound that’s continuously evolving and fully unique. This is a project that focuses on a joint contribution of artists showcasing not only excellent songwriting and lyricism, but a simple yet beautiful ensemble of harmonizing vocals, guitar, mandolin and percussion. With just the right mix of folk, pop, and fireside feeling, each song sets tones, tells stories, and has a little something for everyone.
Calumet recalls the sounds of some of it’s members previous efforts (Alone at 3AM, 500 Miles to Memphis, The Frankl Project) but looks to the beginnings of american music for its inspiration. The result is catchy and comfortable, familiar like you’ve met before, but rest assured you haven’t.
