The Burning Peppermints
Blackpool Mecca is an alternative rock group comprised of Baxter White (guitar), Kris Jedd (guitar), and Caleb Hughes (drums), formed in Nashville in 2018. The boys met one by one after moving to Nashville to pursue their love of music. The trio became quick friends after sharing some of each other’s greatest musical influences and desire to create and perform. Their first single ‘Boys’ landed them as featured ‘artist of the week’ on Nashville’s local 102.9 The Buzz following a successful string of shows across the southern states. Notable inspirations for Blackpool Mecca are The Black Keys, Kings Of Leon and Radiohead. They are currently recording new music and getting back on the road with a blistering set of rock n roll tunes.
Witch’s Wall crafts a seamless brew of dreamy indie pop and psychedelia-shaded experimental rock. Beginning in northeast Alabama, lead songwriter David Smith was raised in a large family of music enthusiasts. Upon discovering 311 in middle school, and Radiohead in high school, Smith shifted focus to music before relocating to Birmingham. As his tastes changed, so did his songwriting style, and by his twenties Smith was drawing from a deeper well of artistic influence, citing artists like Grizzly Bear, Luke Temple, and Canadian singer-songwriter Andy Shauf as inspirations. After meeting Benjamin Giles (guitar), the pair played in a series of bands before uniting with schoolmates Matthew Perkins (bass) and Brandon Lett (drums) as KYLE. They studied by day, and by evening, they refined their skills on-stage and in Lett's makeshift home studio. Now aided by Smith's cousin Dylan Corker (keys), the band began cementing their panoramic indie rock stylings. With a new name and a new focus, Witch's Wall finished their self- titled full-length debut for Birmingham's Cornelius Chapel records in 2020.
