About the show: "The White Buffalo represents an authentic homage to the times of hard touring, hard drinking artists who truly lived what they sang about. Seamlessly moving from heartfelt ballads to raucous bar songs, The White Buffalo sings with honesty and thoughtful reflection as he travels the road, sharing his music. Everything about him is big, from his imposing physical size to his amazing vocal range. From his whiskey-drenched, growling lows to heart-stopping highs, The White Buffalo paints a touching picture, whether he stands alone or performs with his energetic, charismatic band.
"After vigorously road testing his new material, The White Buffalo is releasing his latest EP, Prepare for Black & Blue on Ruff Shod Records, State Radio's imprint label through Nettwerk, this fall. Produced by Jimmy Messer, this collection of songs showcases The White Buffalo's stripped down unmistakable sound."

About the show: "Hailing from the city of Atlanta, Georgia, Collective Soul shot to international fame with their 1993 release Hints, Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, and their mega #1 hit "Shine." The album was a collection of Ed Roland's demos that spread quickly through the college underground circuit and caught fire, going on to achieve Double-Platinum status. After having been invited to the 25th Anniversary Woodstock concert, Collective Soul went into the studio to record their sophomore follow up. The self-titled Collective Soul, released in March of 1995, would be the album that would help define their sound of catchy melodies and guitar driven songs. Containing four outstanding singles (three of which reached #1), "December," "The World I Know," "Where The River Flows," and "Gel," it became Collective Soul's highest selling album to date. The album went Triple-Platinum and spent 76 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 charts.
"After releasing a Greatest Hits set entitled 7even Year Itch: Greatest Hits 1994-2001, Collective Soul ended their contract with Atlantic Records and created their own label El Music Group. The first release on the label was Youth (2004). The lyrics, in particular "Better Now," declared the band's newfound confidence and independence. Two more records and a concert DVD were released under the El Music Group imprint in 2005 and 2006: the EP From The Ground Up and Home - their lush, live, concert event with the Atlanta City Youth Orchestra.
""Tremble For My Beloved" found Collective Soul on the soundtrack to one of the hottest movies of 2008 - Twilight. "We heard through the grapevine that Stephanie Meyer was a fan of Collective Soul's music and lyrics," says Ed. Expanding to tweens opened up a whole new audience for the band.
"In 2009, a new label and new momentum. Collective Soul released their latest studio effort Collective Soul, on Roadrunner Records. In 2010, Collective Soul parted ways with Roadrunner Records and returned to El Music Group. The band is currently touring and working in the studio."
