As the name implies, The Outliers is a bit different type of band. The band formed out of the respect for traditional American music but a love for genres spanning from reggae to Delta blues and a belief that music can change, become new and still evoke the deep ancient tones within.
Hank Bowman is a singer/songwriter from North Carolina. As the frontman and lead singer for The Outliers, Hank brought his original music to the stages throughout the southeast. Now, with the release of his first solo project, “Lonely”, The Outliers will be touring listening rooms across the area to bring his unique stylings to his loyal fans and new ones alike.
Stan Brown is undoubtedly one of the best to ever pick the five string banjo. After years in Nashville playing with the likes of Grand Ol Opry stars Wilma Lee Cooper and Bill Monroe, Stan returned to his home state of North Carolina to become a first call banjo picker. He is widely regarded for his unique backup licks that give life to any song.
Joining Bowman is Julie Brown on bass. Julie has a sense of tone and timing that is highly sought after. After a solid run with the nationally touring Sweet Potato Pie, Julie holds down the rock solid upright bass duties with style and grace, knowing that what you don’t play is as important as what you do play. She is an enlightened bass player.
Spencer Mobley on mandolin adds to the signature sound of The Outliers through the style, timing and tone that he delivers. Spencer is known for his crowd pleasing romps through a melody that brings you to edge of your seat.
Together, The Outliers are pushing limits, reaching back in time, and creating an unexpected acoustic experience each time they take the stage.

Charlotte – Clare is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with one of the recording industries finest and most successful musicians and producers Mr Louie Shelton. Over the past several decades you would have heard Louie Shelton’s signature guitar riffs and solos on more hit records than any other session guitarist in history. While there are too many to mention, some of his classics include, Boz Scaggs’ “Low Down”, Lionel Richie’s “Hello”, Neil Diamond’s “Play Me”, The Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back”, “ABC” and “I’ll Be There, The Monkees’ “Last Train To Clarksville” and “Valerie”. Some of the other artists Louie recorded with include John Lennon, Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, The Carpenters, Joe Cocker, Kenny Rodgers, The Mamas & Papas, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald and many others.
“It could be the first time ever that a publicist can be accused of an understatement. From Australia’s Gold Coast, Charlotte Clare (Looker) is blessed with a soaring, sumptuous voice, and more than a touch of that spiritual Northern Soul sound…“Oh Holy Night” is an island-infused gem. Not a single track disappoints, and a couple of the tracks (“Jingle Bell Rock” and “White Christmas”) are different enough interpretations that left me wanting to play them over and over. So I did. And I am. ”

I,Darius Jackson was born in Springfield, IL in on Sept. 5th, 1989. Spent most of my life unsure of what my life would bring, I was on the verge of dropping out of high school, but finished up and earned my High school diploma. Afterwards I got a little college education but it seemed i was coming to a dead end as far as finances go. So i joined the service for an initial 8 years, i served a year of that contract and changed over to active duty for a 3 years instead of 8, which leaves me today with a year and half left.
On the other side of things while all that went on, Ive always had a creative side for music. i didn’t start out like most rappers with a broad knowledge of history’s greatest musicians. I just wanted to sound like anything people liked. I always tried to imitate what i heard because i thought that was the answer but later in life found out that the way i was going about it was all wrong. i wasn’t really hungry for the whole fame thing at first because of what the chances of making it were and currently are. But in my 22 years of living i have learned many things. I spent a year in Iraq making music during mortar and rocket attacks. During that time i spent a lot of time researching what music, harmony, and what effect it had on humans was. I learned from a great friend of mines that “Do your music in own way, people will eventually come.” pretty much what i got from that is that if you truly have talent you put out music that is from what u have inside not what out there and what everyone has engraved in there mind right now.
I have come to a conclusion that I am going to try put forth effort and commit to the music bizness. I produce my own music and in my next bio i will be more thorough about everything.

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Destroy She Said’s music is a potent blend of vicious guitar riffs mixed with tales of fast living. It’s the soundtrack to Melbourne’s underbelly; stripped back, hard edged, no bullshit rock n roll.
Their second EP, Music For Muscle Cars, was recorded at Hothouse Audio in St Kilda and mastered by Jack the Bear at Deluxe. It contains four of the toughest and most honest rock songs you are likely to hear all year.
All DSS music is available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
Destroy She Said are: Youngy – guitar | Scampers – bass | Dave Walker – guitar | Greg Aldridge – drums | Simon McCullough – vocals.
“The sophomore E.P from Melbourne’s Destroy She Said is an absolute cracker. Music for Muscle Cars definitely smacks of very masculine, testosterone soaked pub rock greatness from the opening riff of first track “Drivin’ Machine”. The vocals from Simon McCullough have clearly been influenced by the likes of Bon Scott and Angry Anderson, but definitely not in any copycat way. The thunderous riffs and leads provided by Youngy and Dave Walker will have you banging your head vigorously, and the rhythm section of Scampers on Bass and Greg Aldridge on drums is extremely tight. Lyrically the band keeps things very simple. The aforementioned “Drivin’ Machine” on first listen, appears to be about muscle cars, but if you listen to the lyrics I’m sure you will hear the real story. Second track “Fanta Pants” is about the love of red heads, “Squirter” probably needs no explanation and the first single “Game Over” is an arse kicking anthem. ”
