J-Birds is a riff driven rock band led by Tater Johnson formerly of 10 years. (1998-2016) A founding member that stuck with the group even though dreaming of days of musical freedom from the chains of writing songs for the radio or strictly for profit. The bands first full length album is “The High Road.” 11 tracks that will keep you guessing from one track to the next. A breath of fresh air that blends some old school riff with some new school beats. It’s digitally available everywhere at streaming for free at www.TatervisionRecords.com. The bands first single and music video is for a tune called “Burn Bright" from their debut album "The High Road.”
J Birds music is complete freedom. “I just love all kinds of music, from Bob Marley, to old gospel Hymnals, to Metallica and grew up on the energy of punk rock.” Says Tater, “I never cared about fitting in musically either, even when I was a kid. The punks didn’t like me because I like Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana. I paid my dues of 16 years touring in a band that just felt like being in one of those Showbiz Pizza bands. Every song was on a metronome and nobody had to pay attention or work together as an unit. I wanted to build a band that had to work together. A band that could and add a jam band feel with some amazing players so every experience live you see is different. So if I wanna go play a guitar solo in the crowd in the middle of a song, I can.”
Crossing genres at will, you never know what the next song might hold. With lyrics and grooves that move you while connecting you to your body and soul. They are a band on a mission with a strong message of Peace, Love and Rock.
Josiah and the Greater Good From Knoxville, Tennessee, supported by his band, The Greater Good, Josiah Atchley, marine turned musician, is taking the music scene by storm! With a high energy show, full of unpredictable jams, one is guaranteed to leave a fan. With Frank Sheadrick Jr on drums, Jon Augustus on bass, Brandon Bowman on saxophone, Andrew Powers on lead, Shawn Turner on keys, and Josiah Atchley in the front on rhythm guitar and vocals, they combine for lethal dose of heavy rock/blues/reggae vibes with a hint of pop and whatever other seasoning the moment may call for.
After releasing the band’s first single “Real Mother Lover,” the band has performed as an opening act for national touring band Kansas, and performed a set at Bonnaroo 2016. Now, Josiah & The Greater Good are poised to take on a strong regional presence moving forward into 2017! With local Dogwood Arts Festival under their belt, Blankfest booked for August, and Hillfest in VA set for Sept, they are changing gears and focusing on booking their first regional tour in the spring and summer of ’17. With self-titled “Josiah & The Greater Good EP” set to come out on the tail of their single, there is no end to the exciting new things coming from this band over the next few months. Come join the movement and help propel a band of hungry Knoxvillians into the next level! Download/stream music on Itunes/Spotify/Amazon
