People Of Earth w/ Chris Larkin
People of Earth (Chapel Hill, NC):
People of Earth is an Chapel Hill-based progressive rock outfit. Their sound combines elements of funk, math rock, jazz, and jam band improvisation. They believe and try their best to perpetuate the idea that one must not only wiggle their toes in ecstasy upon hearing music, but simultaneously engage and grapple with the music in order to absorb its healing essence.
Chris Larkin (Raleigh, NC):
Chris Larkin is an alternative artist from Raleigh, NC, with a live band trio rounded out by Michael Hudson (bass) and Alan Asby (drums) since late 2017. After independently releasing his debut album Honest in March 2018, the trio is bringing songs from that release and a collection of newly written songs to their live set. The group draws influence from acts such as The Neighborhood, Hozier, and Cage The Elephant. With different musical backgrounds and influences spanning through the trio, the combination results in a high-energy set full of carefully crafted pop-rock songs.
