The Southern Belles
The Southern Belles
The Southern Belles are a Psychedelic, American, Rock & Roll band from Richmond, VA. The band consists of Adrian Ciucci (guitar/vocals), Tommy Booker (keys/vocals), Raphael Katchinoff (drums/vocals), and Andrew Carper (bass/vocals). The band formed in 2010 and since then has been growing exponentially. The Southern Belles hold residencies across the state of Virginia in Charlottesville, Herndon, and our hometown of Richmond, and we have toured the East Coast from Georgia to Vermont. In 2012 we recorded our debut album "Sharp As A Knife". We have also played a seemingly countless number of music festivals. This year we are adding Floyd Fest and Some Kind of Jam to that list. The Southern Belles have shared the stage with the likes of Anders Osborne, Moon Taxi, Keller Williams, Toubab Krewe, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, Zach Deputy, and more. Currently The Southern Belle are touring the East Coast and working on new material for our next album.

Self propelled since our inception, the band has achieved all that it has on our own without the aid of record labels or outside management. The band works hard to make our dreams a reality, focusing on songwriting and instrumental proficiency.
Maradeen
Maradeen is an American rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Founded by guitarist, Whit Murray, in the summer of 2014 with keyboardist, Kaitlyn Connor, and bassist, Sterling Miller, the band formed their initial roots as a high energy rock n roll quartet. With classical and jazz improvisation backgrounds they forged and evolved a unique and well-versed sound. In 2015 Tom Galloway moved to Nashville for songwriting and began collaborations with Murray. The band entered the analog studio "Welcome to 1979" in the spring of 2015 and recorded their first full-length LP entitled, "Mirage". The album features the initial hard-hitting rockers from the band's formative stage while revealing the new songwriting dynamic between Murray and Galloway.

Although the band was new to the scene at this time, the origins of Maradeen run deep. Murray played lead guitar for Galloway's band, Mama's Love, between the years of 2009-12. During this time they toured nationwide, developed a devoted fanbase, and recorded with renowned producers Tom Tapley and John Keane. Galloway continued fronting Mama's Love while Murray extended his education at The Berklee College of Music. Mama's Love had shared the stage with the progressive rock band, Afro, several times in the past which featured Connor on keys. Connor met Miller through the MTSU music program where Miller majored in audio engineering and played with bands Harrison Anvil and The Bourbon Barrel Band. Whit met Russ Garner, who was also a Berklee College graduate, at an open jam in Nashville one evening. Garner played with the Larry Mitchell Band which had also crossed paths with Mama's Love in the past. A long line of history, coincidence, and mutual passion brought together the group, and they continue to make strides as they climb the mountain of music.
