Eric Dodd
Eric Dodd
With his roots on Lake Oconee, located 70 miles east of Atlanta, Eric Dodd is a Singer-Songwriter with the ability to cross between Rock, Country and Americana genres. Critics say Dodd is best described as “a blend between Edwin McCain and Zac Brown.” Dodd claims both southern songwriters as influences.

Like many songwriters before him, Dodd started writing songs when that first note rang on his hand-me down acoustic guitar. While studying Music Business at the University of Georgia, he paid his dues at the many venues in town including the famous Georgia Theatre. Now, 26 years young, Dodd’s fans describe him as an older soul with lyrics that subscribe to this observation. Although he is just in his twenties, his entertaining shows and maturity on stage display the poise one must have to make it in the music business today.

Dodd and his band have been touring the southeast since 2008 and are playing over 200 shows a year. Dodd is one of Georgia’s most polished and eminent artists. He is up and coming… fast.

His third and latest release, Time To Decide, is a concept album, exploring relevant subjects in our country today but still has the soul-filled stories of heartache, rekindling of relationships and hope. The record is available on iTunes and at all shows.
Ben Wells
Ben Wells
What started out as an acoustic solo endeavor, quickly turned into the rising Country Rock artist/band that's before you. Ben Wells began uploading original and simple covers of his favorite songs on YouTube, just a couple years ago. Those "simple" covers immediately jumped from 100's of views to 100,000's of views to ultimately Millions of views. Though Ben was performing a strong solo acousti...c gig circuit, there was a missing piece. Crossing the path of experienced musicians Stephen Deloach, Rodney Baldwin, and Josh Hughes was definitely that "missing piece" that Ben needed and they are what now forms the Ben Wells Band. With these 4 passionate musicians all on one stage, they build a unique, "rock-hard" sound that compliments modern Country Music.

They have shared the stage with artists Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, Brooks and Dunn, Roy Clark, Darius Rucker, Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Jerrod Niemann, and Crossing Dixon to name a few. The Ben Wells Band is currently the 2011 Southeast WXRS Battle of the Bands Champion. In addition, Ben himself was nominated earlier this year as the GA Country Music "Male Artist of the Year" Award.

These 4 guys have all seen different aspects of the music industry, country music, and the independent scene, and together bring an ingenious intellect that gains their growing attention nationwide.

If you take traditional country music and "smack" it in the face with outlaw rock country, you have the sound that shapes Ben Wells and the Ben Wells Band.
