Post Sixty Five – Born from the mind of songwriter and frontman Hicham Benhallam, the Charlottesville-based band Post Sixty Five has been described as both moody and romantic, feverishly tugging at the heartstrings of its listeners with fragile guitar lines driven by a thunderous rhythm section. Formed in October of 2013, Post Sixty Five brings Benhallam’s devastating images to life with dizzy, delicate melodies and disarmingly earnest performances that weigh heavy on the heart.
Stray Fossa – Charlottesville, VA, based indie/alternative rock band Stray Fossa has hit the ground running. Comprised of brothers and childhood friends Nick Evans, Will Evans, and Zach Blount, Stray Fossa seamlessly blends smooth singer/songwriter melodies with a driving, gritty, indie rock vibe to create a complex, exciting sound. As a result of growing up playing music together in Sewanee, Tennessee, and taking a few years hiatus, Stray Fossa is an amalgamation of self-discovery as people and musicians, a new project acting as a celebratory reunion of personalities and musical styles. – Grace Seekins
