Grace Potter
COX CAPITOL THEATRE
Grace Potter’s epic musical journey reaches a new milestone with the arrival of her solo debut, Midnight (released August 14 on Hollywood Records), an inspired work that is surprising, revelatory and wildly original. Potter has proven her versatility guesting with everyone from Kenny Chesney toThe Rolling Stones, but she clearly needed a new main collaborator to break out of her sweet spot. Working with L.A. producer Eric Valentine on Midnight, she remains her aggressive, earthy self while getting playful in new ways. With its songs about sex and dancing, self-confidence and risk, Midnight is a mid-career turn for Potter that proves genuinely freeing.

Daniel Lee
THE CRAZY BULL
Corey Smith, Colt Ford, Brantley Gilbert and Daniel Lee, what do the four of these artists have in common? The four of them were at one point in their careers all signed to the same record label. Maybe not at the same time, but they were all signed to Average Joe’s Entertainment. Not only that, but they all came from within an 18 mile radius of each other. Now sit and think about that for a second. Corey Smith, who has released seven independent records, Colt Ford, who has released five and is a prominent figure within Average Joe’s Entertainment, Brantley Gilbert who co-wrote the  4x certified platinum hit single, “Dirt Road Anthem”, with Ford, and has had three number one hit singles, and Daniel Lee, who just released his DEBUT CD, “Roots”, all came from the same area. Needless to say, there is something in the water down in the northern part of Georgia.

Daniel Lee from Winder, Georgia just released his debut album entitled, “Roots.”  His album title is precisely correlated to the southern music on the album and he has given us an insight into his roots, a direct narration of the heart and soul of his Georgia life, painted for you in every song.  Honestly, it is a great representation of southern living in every small town throughout the south.

Jimmy Hall’s Birthday Bash
COX CAPITOL THEATRE
Jimmy Hall, vocalist for Jeff Beck’s 2014 US Tour co-headling with ZZ Top, is, according to Jeff Beck’s Website, a Southern Boy With Lots of Soul. Jimmy is heading on tour with Jeff Beck again Spring of 2015 and will be touring with Hank Jr. in the Fall. Jimmy Hall first gained notoriety as the front man for the band Wet Willie from Mobile, Alabama. His unique brand of R&B-infused rock and roll swagger propelled the group’s “Keep On Smilin’” into the Top 10 on the Billboard singles chart in 1974. His songs have been recorded by Gregg Allman, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Amazing Rhythm Aces, Johnny Russell, and others. Since the 1980s, Hall has been a vocalist, saxophonist, harmonica player and band leader with Hank Williams, Jr.

Gringo Starr
THE HUMMINGBIRD
If you know a little about the Furgiueles’ roots, it all makes sense. “Our grandad started out in radio in the ’40s and ’50s in Columbus, Ga.,” Nick explains. “He was a huge promoter of R&B back when it was still super segregated, and he was playing black music and putting on shows with Little Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Sam Cooke & the Soul Stirrers, a lot of Gospel shows. So we grew up hearing all these stories, listening to all this music. Our grandfather was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame posthumously. And my grandma—all her photo albums are like Jackie Wilson shirtless backstage, hanging out.” With their family’s R&B connections and their young obsession with early rock & roll, it wasn’t long before the two brothers started making music.

They’ve paid their dues over the last decade, weathering multiple lineup shifts and the often-brutal gauntlet of the road on two continents separated by thousands of miles of ocean, building their following the old-fashioned way; they’ve studied in the studio with the masters, and they’ve set out on their own intrepid sonic odyssey, returning with the blinking-light palette of esoteric sounds and unforgettable hooks that comprise their infectious new record, Floating Out to See. And now, they’re riding this slowly cresting wave toward what looks a whole lot like a breakthrough.

Scott Sapp: The Voice of Creed
COX CAPITOL THEATRE
Driven by unbridled passions and haunted by ghosts that defy definition, the great rockers keep getting better, stronger, more determined to get it right. Proof of Life is proof that Scott Stapp is among the great rockers. It’s also proof that this time he’s gotten it right. The music—hard-edged, explosive, fiercely spontaneous and emotionally super-charged—frames the story of Stapp’s remarkable journey, beginning with his long relationship with Creed.
