STRAY LOCAL

https://www.straylocal.com/

Stray Local is the husband-and-wife songwriting duo of Jamie Rowen and Hannah Lomas based in Wilmington, North Carolina. The pair performs a bouquet of indie sounds punctuated by rich vocal harmonies, catchy guitar riffs, and well crafted melodies all woven together by their folk beginnings and new pop sensibilities. They released their debut EP Passenger in the summer of 2018.


When the couple is not writing or performing as Stray Local they are running the roads and trails along their tour route, competing in 5ks through marathons and even obstacle course races. In March 2019, they launched the Stray Local "Run Wild" campaign inspiring healthy living and an active lifestyle partnering with local run clubs throughout the country and rolling out their Run Wild activewear line. 


XOXOK

Keenan Jenkins musical career began during his Ph.D. studies at UNC-Chapel Hill, where he played open mics and local showcases between long days on the third floor of the psychology building. By the time hed finished his degree, drained and discontent, his musical moonlighting had meanwhile bloomed in full color. He took the cue and dove headfirst into the rich music scene in Carrboro, NC.


Jenkins now performs as XOXOK, crafting atmospheric soul music that is conceived on the fretboard, cultivated at the microphone, and cradled in headphones. The guitar and vocal influences are far-flung, but cohesivesee Jeff Buckley, Moses Sumney, and Anna Calvi, among others. His live performance is a model of intimacy and presence; armed with sweet, ringing vocals (Queen City Nerve), XOXOK delivers impassioned songs with unabashed conviction.


XOXOKs debut EP Worthy is both a lush soundscape and an exercise in growth. On the opening track, Nancy, M.D., he declares, I need you / more than your patients will ever need you as their medic. However, by the final song (the title track, Worthy), he has changed his tune: I dont need you to love me / I just want to be worthy.
