STALLINGS – Province of Thieves won the bluegrass/folk category at the Carolina Music Awards on Aug. 11 in Raleigh.
Brad Davidson, Greg Moore, Parker Foley and Jennie Brooks make up the all-acoustic ensemble, which features guitar, mandolin, ukulele, Irish bouzouki, upright bass and percussion.
What sets them apart is not so much the eclectic mix of acoustic instrumentation, but rather the vocal harmonies. The band’s songwriting is influenced by folk rock, Americana, bluegrass, beach music and 1980s pop.
The band calls a garage in the Madison Ridge neighborhood of Stallings its home. They perform at breweries and popular night spots in the region, including events like Taste of Charlotte and Symphony in the Park.
They have been performing together since 2012 and released two albums: “Province of Thieves” (2014) and “Laverna” (2016). The band is working with producer Eric Lovell at Blu Bubble Studios on their third album, “Weight of the Sky.”
