Deep River:


After hearing Deep River sing one of their own compositions, 'Remember Always', live on the Bell Buckle (Tennessee) Jamboree Radio Show, local resident Charlie Louvin of Louvin Brothers fame told the country vocal group, "I'd like to hear y'all play that song on the Opry." Although they haven't yet had that opportunity, Deep River has sung with Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill, as well as opened for country star Mark Wills and the 'Mother of Bluegrass', Wilma Lee Cooper.

Founding members Sandy Howard and Sharon Lewis have been performing together since April 1993 in Nashville, Tennessee, and the current line-up made it's Asheville, North Carolina debut in August, 2007.

While in Nashville, Sandy and Sharon recorded three CDs, wrote or co-wrote eight songs, two of which, 'Civil War' and 'Silver Eagle', received 'honorable mention' from Music Row magazine's Robert K. Oermann, and one of those, 'Silver Eagle', received a little radio airplay on small market country stations around the US. More recently, 'Civil War' has been played by Asheville's KISS Country 99 FM.

The name 'Deep River' conjures up thoughts about the natural circle of life, and that's exactly how one might describe their music---stories of love and loss told in the context of family-style harmonies and danceable rhythms.

Bill Mattocks and the Strut:


We are a result of the natural progression of music. Starting as The Bill Mattocks Band in 2003 playing Blues and Blues influenced music. After moving to the mountains of Western North Carolina from Seattle in late 2013 and continuing our exploration of music currently we decided to shift our focus to Soul, Funk, R&B and Blues. We also decided since we have a change in direction a new name was in order. Bill Mattocks and The Strut continue on with the same commitment to performing tightly arranged music as in The Bill Mattocks Band. We hope you enjoy our work.
