Sanctum Sully - LIVE AT THE GEM

A delicious stew of rock, bluegrass, funk, psychedelia, country, folk & blues.
For years an Asheville bluegrass favorite (voted one of WNC’s top-3 bluegrass bands by Mountain Xpress readers from 2010-2013), Sanctum Sully has reemerged as a 6-piece electrified unit that combines their many influences to form a unique & authentic sound. From frantic bluegrass licks to spaced-out ambient rock…Sanctum Sully churns it out, straight from the heart.
Originally formed in 2008, SS has put out three albums (2012’s “Trade Winds” and 2014’s “Southern Trees”) and their most recent self titled EP "Sanctum Sully" released in 2018 has been getting a lot of airplay on 88.7 and 98.1. Sanctum Sully has played to many festival crowds (Merlefest, Floydfest, Mountain Song at Sea, Bele Chere, Rooster Walk, Soulshine Fest, DTA5), and performed along side their own heroes from time to time (Leftover Salmon, Larry Keel, Acoustic Syndicate & more). They are a merry band of friends who’s love & respect for each other bleeds out through the music.

The Henry Soffet Project - LIVE AT THE GEM

The Henry Soffet Project - LIVE AT THE GEM

Born out of a few old dusty notebooks in a sleepy Austin, Texas fixer upper, the songs and spirit of Henry Soffet were discovered by Chance Kuehn during his stint in the city. Henry was the brother of a top government intelligence officer. Living in a shadow, his existence was hidden under mountains of paperwork and the fraternal secrets of our nations protectors. This was nothing new to the shy Henry Soffet. Hidden away in his home, Henry occupied his time by writing songs to the woman he loved, but could never muster the courage to bring those songs to light.

Upon returning to Waynesville, North Carolina, Chance uncovered the old notebooks and decided to do what Henry couldn’t. He stole away to a secluded cabin for a week living off of stale beer rotisserie chickens and emerged with a number of songs. Knowing he couldn’t follow Henry’s path and leave these songs unheard, Chance assembled a backing band to tell one story that intertwines two souls.

So what is Henry Soffet and Company? It’s an experience. It’s a collective of experiences. It’s equal parts Americana and Blues, Roots and Rock. Moreover, it is a way to express, and to receive expression, a way to bring people together and enjoy music and communion with each other.

Henry Soffet and Company is located in the Western region of the mountains of North Carolina and consists of Chance Kuehn, David Merrell, Grady Wiley, and Aaron Gillespie.
