"With all of the noise that surrounds and separates us in our daily lives, it's natural for people to feel the urge to unplug and find joy and connection through the mutual love of not only music but the individuals on stage and around them, they identify with if only for just a brief time. That's why it's important to take a breather every once in a while and enjoy a good live rock show!"
~Graeme Adams, frontman of Appalachian Renegades
Appalachian Renegades is a solid rock band that fuses classic sounds and modern tones. The band surges with heavy guitar riffs mixed with soaring saxophone melodies and clean vocals to form their core sound. In the past seven years they have played shows across WNC, and are currently writing music for their 4th studio release. Devil's Wish. Their previous album had two #1 singles in the summer of 2022 on Buzz Radio Asheville. The band produces a sound reminiscent of rock bands, Greta Van Fleet, Clutch, Volbeat, Government Mule, Jack White, Black Stone Cherry, and My Morning Jacket. Band members are Graeme Adams on vocals, guitar and saxophone, Cole Ford on lead guitar and vocals, Matt Hosier on bass, and Larry Smith on drums.
