Michael Cansler

Michael Cansler writes songs that paint pictures of small-town life and beyond.  Songs that come from real life, based on observations, as well as from printed literature.

Michael has played from the Carolina’s to Texas.  He continues to hone his craft in the style of those like Chris Knight, Jason Isbell and Guy Clark.

Colin Cutler

A Greensboro-based songwriter toting a guitar and banjo, Colin Cutler’s music spans the breadth of Americana, from Appalachian oldtime to blues to oldschool country to folk rock, with lyrics rooted in the earthy storytelling traditions of the South, his Pentecostal upbringing, and literature.

Winner of the 2022 Emerging Artists competition at the Susquehanna Folk Festival, his 3 albums and EP have landed plays on NC and Virginia public radio, the BBC, and community and college stations around the region, placement in the British film Zomblogalypse, mentions in No Depression, Americana Highways, and the Alternate Root, and have taken him to gigs from North Carolina’s Martha Bassett Show, Antlers and Acorns Songwriters Festival, Haw River Ballroom, and NC Folk Festival, to the Jalopy Theatre’s Roots N Ruckus in Brooklyn, City of York Folk Festival (UK) and Romanian National Museum of Literature–and plenty of breweries and farmer’s markets in between. He has also shared stages with Caroline Spence, Buffalo Nichols, David Childers, and Catherine Backus (catherine the great).

“A seasoned performer, Colin combines his worldly and traveled view with the sound of southern roots.” ~Around Town Sessions

Eric Erdman

Eric Erdman was writing songs at 8 years old. When he and his older brother sat at the end of their family’s pier on Mobile Bay, they learned to play guitar to the rhythm of the waves and they pulled as many tunes from that water as they did fish.  

Eric’s passion for and knowledge of music grew throughout his high school and college years. After graduating from the University of South Alabama with a B.S. in Statistics, Eric continued to pursue his music career, forming the funk rock band The Ugli Stick. The group recorded four albums and toured worldwide for years with Eric as front man.

Soon Eric joined the writing staff in Muscles Shoals at legendary Fame Studios, where he not only met and impressed producer Jimmy Nutt, but also soaked up inspiration from the history and roots of the small north Alabama town known as “The Hit Recording Capital of the World.”

Smart lyrics, gorgeous melodies, soulful ballads: Eric’s range transcends genre. As a guitarist, Eric’s mastery and versatility has him touring with world class acts like the Buddy Rich Band, Kristy Lee, Nadirah Shakoor. Besides his own singer/songwriter credentials, Eric produces projects for other artists as well.

“Being the singer, artist, writer, and producer is a lot, and it is hard to wear all of those hats at once, but Eric is one of the few people who can do it.” – Jimmy Nutt, Grammy winning producer / owner of The Nutthouse

Claiming influences like James Taylor, Jim Croce, Mac McAnally and David Wilcox, Eric’s style moves through soulful rhythm and blues into jazzy funk, then turns the corner and brings you right back to your roots with a smooth country tune. 

“The songwriters I look up to are open channels for any experience that comes to them,” Erdman says. “Nothing is off limits. If it is a human emotion , it is valid song fodder.”  

Eric takes this same fearless mindset to the stage , where his decades of touring experience has honed his ability to fully bring his songs to life. With confidence he delivers a dynamic display of his tunes, that always leaves audiences wanting more.
