Dave Brewer's Foscoe Four
Possum Jenkins formed in Boone, NC during the winter of 2004. Several years, more than 300 show and thousands of miles later, the five friends continue to perform their soulful brand of self-described "Carolinacana" to enthusiastic audiences at clubs, festivals, houses, and anywhere else people will let them drink, swear and pick (which then leads to more swearing...).
The Worthless Son-in-Laws are a Boone, North Carolina-based band formed and baptized with their grammatically incorrect moniker in the wee hours of 2004. They play Appalachian Mountain Indie-Rock, which various people have likened to some combination of Ryan Adams, Son Volt, Wilco, early REM, the Jayhawks, the dB's, Mark Eitzel, the Allman Brothers, and Justin Townes Earle.
Jimmy Davidson (acoustic guitar/vocals) and Rob Brown (electric guitar/vocals) write songs about t-shirt shops, Mississippi highways, weddings, and life on container ships, among other things. Jimmy draws from his work experiences and flips through Bryan Garner’s Dictionary of Modern American Usage for inspiration, while Rob’s muse is his latent desire to be a truck driver (he is, in truth, a university professor). Jimmy used to play toy drums and acoustic guitar with songwriter Vic Chesnutt. Rich Crepeau (bass guitar, PhD) plays bass and writes a sinister country-punk number his own self now and then. And, he’s on the Boone Board of Adjustment. Then there's Dave Brewer, who plays drums and sings harmony and generally espouses his endless opinions.
