Biography

Bevel Summers first came together in the Fall of 2010 after several late night impromptu jam sessions between David Hutcheson and Jeb Brinkley. The two were Seniors at UNC-Chapel Hill at the time, David an English/Creative Writing student and Jeb a Dramatic Art major. Both had gone through break-ups with long term girlfriends, both could carry a tune and wrote songs occasionally, and neither were the slightest interested in school anymore. The two began working on songs together at a break neck pace, staying up some nights until the sun rose writing and playing their tunes in Jeb's living room (much to the chagrin of Jeb's roommates), skipping class to sleep, or attending class and writing lyrics rather than
paying attention. The two worked on their technique, practicing obsessively, and began playing gigs at open mics and at local
friends' parties within weeks. By the start of 2011 they had recruited friends Alex Van Gils (upright bass) and Andrew
Magill (fiddle) and were playing their first paying gig outside of Carrboro, NC at The Kraken Bar to a crowd of friends (one who biked 8 miles in the cold), and some local Rednecks. Their live performances caught on quick for their rolicking energy, charismatic onstage antics, and upbeat tunes.Within the next few months Bevel Summers began a regular monthly gig at The Southern Rail and recorded their debut studio album with Jeff Crawford (Light Pines, Roman Candle) and James Wallace (Mount Moriah, Mandolin Orange) at Arbor Ridge Studios East in Chapel Hill, NC. Mastered by Nick Petersen at Track and Field Recording in Chapel Hill, Bevel Summers debut self-titled album is slated to release in the Spring of 2012.
