Little Stranger - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Little Stranger
Born and raised in Philly and crash-landed in Charleston, John and Kevin Shields are the core members of the quirky indie hip-hop group Little Stranger. Whether performing as a duo or with a 5-piece band, Little Stranger is a fresh hybrid of John’s singer-songwriter magnetism and Kevin’s hard hitting, in-your-face delivery. Stylistically reminiscent of Gorillaz and Twenty One Pilots, Little Stranger inhabits a relatively unex- plored niche at this point in time. They’re all about originality, every song is a separate work unto itself with all the strangeness that their name implies.

Though the band is relatively new, John and Kevin Shields bring years of experience to the table. With previous bands, they’ve played with names like Slightly Stoopid, Del the Funky Homosapien, Grace Potter, Papadosio, The Heavy Pets, and John Brown’s Body. Little Stranger was quickly recognized at home, named “Hip-Hop Act of the Year” in the 2016 Charleston City Paper Music Awards and listed jointly as one of “17 People to Watch in 2017” in the Charleston Indie blog, Out of the Wood- work. They’ve toured up and down the East Coast and recently released a string of eclectic music videos to their fans. With an ever-increasing arsenal of new tunes, Little Stranger is poised and ready to make 2017 a big year.
Of Good Nature - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Of Good Nature
Of Good Nature is an indie rock-reggae five piece that was formed in Charlotte, NC in 2011 by front-man, guitarist Cameron Brown and drummer, percussionist Joey Vachon. Coming up in the thriving music scene in the Queen City has been vital to the band’s early success, as well as the blending of rich musical styles which transcends foundations of rock-reggae to progressive instrumentals of funk and rock n’ roll.

The 2011 debut album, Just Add Water, won Indie-Ville Reggae Album of the Year - Nashville, TN. On October 23rd 2015, their sophomore album, Life Worth Livin, debuted at #5 on the iTunes Top Reggae Album Chart. The band was featured in Irie Magazine : Cali Edition (November), scoring their own "Respect” multi-page write up; additionally, the title track was featured as The Pier’s “Mp3 Leak of the Week” and is being spun on a number of traditional and internet radio stations. The prolific group has already made it back to the workshop, recently hitting the studio with Ted Bowne of Passafire. The project is planned for release later this year.

The live show is turning heads, embarking their funky-reggae-party onto Train's Sail Across The Sun Cruise in Febraury of 2017 feat. Michael Franti and Spearhead, Arrested Development, Natasha Beddingfield, and more. The notable Reggae Rise Up Festival in St. Petersburg, FL recently added OGN to the already stacked bill through their Artist Discovery Contest in early 2017, along with Slightly Stoopid, Dirty Heads, Iration, Steel Pulse, The Green and MANY more.

The group has shared the stage with headliners like Sublime with Rome, Common Kings, Dropkick Murphys, Matt Nathanson, Keller Williams, George Porter Jr., Tomorrows Bad Seeds, The Movement, Tribal Seeds, The Supervillains, Ballyhoo! and others. Of Good Nature's National Tour is lining up for 2017. Stay on the lookout OGNation.
