pranapiloga believes in giving back to our commUNITY. We have donated $4,239 to the charities below through our teacher’s and student’s efforts.
Jameson Price and Laney Sullivan are Holy River (formerly Lobo Marino), a Richmond-based duo whose elegantly eerie chant-like intones soar over drone-vibing world-fused folk music built primarily on harmonium, bass drum and various other unique instruments and voices.
Their brand of halcyon, experimental folk draws from a rich palette of international influences. Chaotic yet harmonious, their infectious hooks and intoxicating vocals are both hypnotically spiritual and deeply soulful.
Sean Bendula is an indie/folk singer songwriter now living in Asheville, NC. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Sean now spends his summer months playing music on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, and his winters in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina.
Through the soulfulness of his voice, a rasping blend of gravel and honey, Sean writes evocative lyrics with folk/pop driven melodies, inspired by songwriters like David Gray, Ben Howard, and Damien Rice. Sean’s voice has transformed over the years into something he can call his own, truly a unique and original sound that stands out from the vast amount of singer songwriters in the region.
