TAKE 10 Q&A | Jamison Smith – Musician and Music Scene Superhero

Jamison Smith has been a consistently active part of the Upstate music scene for over 15 years, and has hosted Sunday Songwriters at Brickhouse Pizza for ten years. He's one of the few musicians I know who has kept this level of involvement going for the long haul, and he does it while working in the field of mental health/addictions treatment, AND while raising a family-a combination which in my mind makes him a music scene superhero!


Not “Just a Bill” | Take 10 Q and A with Bill Canny

I met Bill Canny 15 or so years ago (no, moonshine wasn’t involved), and have always enjoyed his company, intelligent conversation, and musicianship. He’s one of those people in our local music scene who doesn’t seek spotlight, though he has been in the international public eye via the show Moonshiners on the Discovery Channel.


Chapman High School Drum Major, Alexandria Preciado Sain

I wanted to join band for as long as I could remember. I used to live behind the Boiling Springs football stadium and I would stand outside my house for hours while the football games was going on. I can still remember hearing the band playing and I said I wanted to do that.
