Program director Chris Edge from That Station shares the up-and-coming local artists he’s listening to these days.
Beta Radio, Wilmington
Don’t miss this indie folk duo out of Wilmington. My favorite from the last year is “Don’t Leave Me
Behind” from the album Year of Love.
Kate Rhudy, Raleigh
Her 2017 debut album, Rock n’ Roll Ain’t For Me, was a triumph — “I Don’t Think You’re an Angel (Anymore)” is a must-listen! She just released a new single “Ships in the Night” (it’s terrific, by the way) and a new album, Dream Rooms.
Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, Chatham County
Grab a copy or stream Nightroamer from this group — this entire album is fantastic from start to finish. My two favorite tracks are “Talkin’ to Myself” and “I Got This.”
Originally from Michigan, they found nationwide success with their first album, Wasa Tusa, in 2012. This indie-rock duo now calls the Triangle home after living here over a decade. A new album is on the way, and they just released the first single, “Corner Street.” It’s so good I’m playing it for everybody I know!
River Whyless, Asheville
Check out the folky single “The Pool” or their new piano-pop track “Promise Rings” off of their latest album, Monoflora.
