TIN 4

Tin4 is an energetic four-piece out of Charlotte, NC. The group has been cutting their teeth in Charlotte bars, breweries, private events and house shows since mid-2018.

While providing a special blend of frenetically funky outlaw country and blues rock in their original music, they’ve been known to woo a rowdy crowd with tactful smatterings of favorite hits ranging from rap and r&b to classic rock.


DEAD SWELLS

Dead Swells is a 5-piece indie project in Charleston, SC. The band is the brainchild of songwriter Paul Nederostek, who started the project while living in Columbia, SC, formed the band after writing 3 initial songs. These songs laid out a vision and the foundation for the band’s live and recorded sound, reflected in their upcoming debut album.

The band, each being seasoned musicians, locked in a heavy groove based upon the songs written by Nederostek alone, and performed throughout the Southeast as a fully formed set up.

After moving to Charleston in 2017, Nederostek buckled down and focused on recording and producing the songs that make up the band’s self-titled debut release. The upcoming record is the product of years of perfecting and honing in on production techniques, having mixed and recorded the entirety of the upcoming album with the guidance of co-producer Wolfgang Zimmerman.
