Heather Himes, the lead singer of Dust & Ashes will be performing as a duo with Nikki Redman (Violin and vocals) to support singer songwriter Jeanette Lynne on her tour stop in Charlotte NC December 19th.
Dust & Ashes is an Americana/Folk quartet hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina. Their dynamic range combines the intensity of wall-of-sound-barn-burners with the sincere intimacy of heartfelt ballads. This all female group exploded onto the local music scene in 2014 with their fresh take on folk music, a genre which their fans affectionately nicknamed “Swamp Stomp.” Lush vocal harmonies, heavy rhythms, and unique instrumentation (including cajón, musical saw, banjo, flute, viola, and myriad auxiliary percussion) support the traditional acoustic guitar played by Heather Himes, the band’s gender queer lead. Himes’ songwriting is inspired by Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Ryan Bingham, Brandi Carlile, Scott Avett, Dallas Green and James Vincent McMorrow, among others. The band has been gaining popularity in the Plaza Midwood and NoDa neighborhoods, performing frequently at Hattie’s Taproom, Snug Harbor, Evening muse, Double Door Inn, Thomas Street Tavern and more.
Jeanette Lynne is a folk pop singer-songwriter, YouTuber, and touring musician based out of Philadelphia PA. Her influences range from witty-rambling songwriters like Courtney Barnett, and The Front Bottoms, to the softer, more acoustic based groups like Bon Iver, City & Colour, and Ingrid Michaelson. She was named “Best Music Artist” in the Philadelphia Spotlight in 2016 when she released her second album, Rabbit’s Foot featuring stand out tracks “Make It Through”, and “Small Things”, among others. Critics like Ali Brant from Switchbitch Records says, “Lynne’s voice is impressive, and her lyrics are honest with a charming simplicity”. Kevin McQuiston (WCHE 1520) says, “Jeanette Lynne is so damn earnest; with a wit, tone, and grace that makes you stop whatever you are doing and honestly listen”. When she is not writing, or performing her original music, she plays bass and sings harmonies on the road with Baltimore Based “Mini Rock n’ Roll Orchestra”, Community Center. Who have kept a consistent tour schedule of 250+ shows a year for the last 2 years. This December, don’t miss your chance to catch her performing smaller intimate venues and house shows along the east coast, with Richmond VA singer-songwriter, BTW (Ben Willson) accompanying on keys and vocals.
