BoDean and the Poachers
Collectively, BoDean and The Poachers have an impressive resume even though they're still technically newcomers to the Georgia music scene. The band features guitarist and singer-songwriter Brandon Fox, bass Shane Brown, lead guitarist Sebastion "Sky" Shattles, drummer Todd Fox, and vocalist Alanna Fox.
BoDean & the Poachers is a family of talented singer-songwriters set to alchemize a legacy all their own through the creation of their own distinct sound. Their individual experience in multiple genres helps to create this unique blend of music sure to tickle all eardrums alike.

While he may not be a household name at present, Evan Barber is no stranger to the Americana/roots music scene in the South. The Albany native has been writing, recording, and touring across his native territory for the better part of the past decade. He’s cut his teeth sharing the stage with the likes of Chris Stapleton, Blackberry Smoke, Jason Isbell, and the Drive-by Truckers — just to name a few. His songs are sketches of the American South; honest-to-goodness stories lifted from the prairies situated below the heart of Appalachia.
Barber points to the “duality of the Southern Thing” — Patterson Hood’s apt moniker for reckoning with the region’s dark past while simultaneously celebrating the area’s progress and inherent pride — as an inspiration for his writing.
He comes by it honestly; as a lifelong Georgia resident, he’s seen and fully lived both the beauty and the shame associated with the Southern Thing. Until The Thunder draws heavily from his upbringing as well as road-worn experiences from time spent touring with his band, the Dead Gamblers. These songs are truly from the heart; his heart being that of a lifelong Southerner.
