High Country Music & Arts Presents:

Sam Burchfield and the Scoundrels



With an honest voice, a band of buddies, and a fancy hat; Sam Burchfield has managed to make some moves at just 25 years old. His latest EP, Unarmored, digs a few layers deeper into a genre-crossing career that has only just started. From folk, to funk, to southern soul — Sam and his band capture it all on their sophomore release.
“…Burchfield’s music is soulful. That is the perfect word for it. It doesn’t just describe his genre – it describes the heart of the artist himself…”
-Emily McBride – VINYL MAG
After cutting his teeth in the indie-music hub of Athens, Georgia, Sam planted new roots in the nation’s R&B capital of Atlanta. Working as a wedding singer to pay rent, Burchfield played with some of Atlanta’s finest, meeting the likes of the Terminus Horns. Sam and the band have now made ripples in the southeast, opening for soul-phenom St. Paul & The Broken Bones, emerging pop star Ben Rector, and Athens pals Family & Friends.

Jane Kramer 
Lauded by UK music reviewer Three Chords and the Truth as sounding like she was “…born to gypsy poets and raised by Emmylou Harris,” Asheville, North Carolina-based songstress Jane Kramer has garnered international recognition for the sultry, heartrending originality of her vocals and for the heavy-hitting lyrical eloquence of her songwriting. With deep roots in the musical traditions of her beloved Appalachia, Kramer’s songs are introspective, gracefully gritty and fiercely memorable.
Following the February 2016 release of her second studio album, Carnival of Hopes, Kramer has been touring nationally and internationally, playing for sold-out audiences in listening rooms, theaters, pubs, festivals, living rooms, arts councils and prisons in support of the record. This has gained her a loyal following from Portland, Oregon to Scotland, U.K. Kramer is set to release her third studio album in fall of 2018.
“Jane Kramer makes gorgeous music. With sensual magnetism in her voice, honesty in her lyrics and elegance in her melodies, her songs cast a wonderful spell. Give this record a listen; you will be taken on a lovely ride deep into the mystical world of an artist on the rise.” ~ Mary Gauthier
“Asheville’s Native songbird Jane Kramer has gone global, garnering fans from Scotland to the West Coast with melodies sweeter than red clover and bucolic musings Joni Mitchell would drool over. But Kramer’s heart and music remain firmly rooted in Appalachian clay: bittersweet lyrics wrapped within the homespun humor of the Southern Highlands.” ~ Max Hunt,
