LISTEN TO THE MAMMOTHS:

ABOUT THE MAMMOTHS:

Beginning in Austin, TX, in the heart of their middle school days, David Kapsner (lead vocals/guitar/piano), Michael Jekot (lead guitar/vocals), and Tyler Rush (bass/vocals) came together to transcend the barrier of blues-rock into funky psych-soul through their various music ventures. Bringing the audacious and wonderfully talented Tim Durand (drums/vocals) into the picture has recently solidified the band with a roaring sound and strength to complement their vibe. Dedication to their music has evolved The Mammoths from garage rock to sophisticated blues-funk, and constant experimentation has allowed each member of the group to always stay true to their roots. Jekot, self-described as playing in the “grunge-endrix” style, notes that Kapsner’s soul vocals, Durand’s pure metal, and Tyler’s deep, groovy funk stand out in the realm of rock, drawing influence from all over to create a sound that is entirely new, yet curiously familiar.

“The Mammoths are an up-and-coming Austin band to watch fueled by their fiery unapologetic live shows reminiscent of a young Led Zeppelin. In meeting with these guys at AMF on their future plans, this band is clearly driven on playing hard and using the old school work ethic of making fans one sweaty show at a time.” – Alex Vallejo (Vallejo Music Group/Austin Music Foundation).

“Crisp and catchy songwriting and performances make The Mammoths new recordings jump through the speakers.” – Kevin Wommack (Playing in Traffic Records)

ABOUT POCKET STRANGE:

Asheville-based Pocket Strange explores the chaotic balance that lies between solace and jubilance. 

A half-hearted “we should start a band” conversation during a 2019 road trip became a reality with the release of their first song, “Carmel by the Sea” – a track recorded in Haydon Welsh’s bedroom in Charlotte when the band was existing as a long-distance duo, with Porter Watson making the trip from Asheville up I-26 to finish their first track in April of 2021. 

Since then, Pocket Strange has focused on songwriting and comradery – with founding members Welsh (Guitar, Vocals) and Watson (Bass, Vocals) tapping into a spiritual journey to a South Carolina farm to work on new material in July of 2021. Returning with a stronger creative connection and a handful of songs, it became apparent that they needed to grow their sound. A sonic evolution came to fruition with the addition of Harrison Sytz (Guitar, Vocals) and Pierce Deason (Pedal Steel, Percussion) in early 2022, aiding in expanding the types of music they can explore, and fighting the lines drawn by the definitions of genre.

Pocket Strange’s music will transport you somewhere between the tie-dyed side of southern rock and psych-rock indie… with a polite splash of spacy jamming that ties together the loose ends that exist outside the constructs of their songs. They’ve decided to be undecided on where they expect the music to land – and in that realm of the unknown, they are able to connect and float in the “Strange” space that leads the band’s exploration and development.
