Roadside Giant delivers their anticipated second release "Camellia Motel", a diverse and intimate work, bar-fueled and driven by heartfelt words and song.
  16 tracks rise from middle Florida with vivid postcards of all that has come through the windshield - love tales, murder ballads, and bent elbow howls.Eugene King's night time gravel road vocals are accompanied in some songs by the sparsest guitar while other tracks are full, with broad, dreamy pedal steel, organ and drums. The coterie of musicians that join Eugene on this incarnation of Roadside Giant range from jazz heads to country purist.
"Camellia Motel" brings back Thomas Juliano (7 Mary 3) on guitars and mandolin. Gary Lee Hibbard plays pedal and lap steel. Anthony Cole (Sam
Rivers Orchestra/Trio) on drums, bass, and organ while Steve Burry and Terri Binion offer the sweetest of vocal accompaniment. This record will send whispers of American Music Club and Mark Lanegan while taking you to a place you may have been before, were glad when you left, but
still love hearing about.
Riverbottom Nightmare Band

Kept afloat by its talented players, the
 Riverbottom Nightmare Band has quietly established itself as Orlando’s de facto favorite bluegrass band. When this mostly all-star lineup of musicians gets together, the result is a feel-great dose of down-home traditional acoustic bluegrass spiked with country-flavored jams that kick ass like a Lynchberg lemonade.
You will find the Riverbottom Nightmare Band's name among the nominated acts for the Country/Folk category in the Orlando Weekly's Orlando Music Awards in past years.
