Webster’s Wheel are an indie folk/Americana duo with a sound lost in time and found on a journey of finger-style acoustics, interweaving vocal harmonies, and emotional landscapes. Based out of east central Alabama, the duo has toured across the South from the far shores of Florida up the mountains of Virginia and across the Texas plains. They have recorded five albums in three years’ time, releasing music in a style that remains true to their sound and captures the unfiltered magic of their live performances. Webster’s Wheel are currently celebrating the release of their newest album Yum Yum Pie with the launch of their Yum Yum Pie Tour 2023. The tour includes stops in some of the country's most iconic cities across the Southeast.

“Moorman's bent and macabre leads hit with a vengeance that conjures the spirit of 90's Seattle grunge. Lee punches you right in the solar plexus, hitting all the low-end sweet spots. McCan slams his kit mercilessly, and the effect is primal, calling the tribes of degenerates and outcasts home to a warm place next to the fire of an ever burgeoning Southern punk scene.” - Matt Cockrell; Guerrilla Media
Cittàgazze started out as a LoFi indie rock/Dreampop project between Anjruw McCarthy and Michael Beatty. Natives of Mobile, Alabama, their debut EP "Rosasharn" soon sparkled interest among other local musicians. Now performing live as a quintet, Cittàgazze has taken a heavier turn towards Shoegaze and the nostalgic alternative of 90s music in general. Anjruw is a multi-instrumental composer of his own namesake, genre-indifferent music. Michael is the guitarist of fellow native band "Paid to pretend". Joined by Sam Anthony (Guitar/Keys), Mason Wiseman (bass) and drummer Trey Nobles (also of paid to pretend).
