"Civil Wars to Headline Google Music Series at Sundance Read more:"

Folk-pop duo the Civil Wars will headline the T-Mobile Presents Google Music Series, a string of gigs at the TAO Nightclub in Park City, Utah during this year's Sundance Film Festival. The Civil Wars will perform on Monday, January 23rd with support from Feather and Belle. Bad Rabbits and Fort Lean will play on January 20th, Vintage Trouble and the Whigs on January 21st and G-Side and Chancellor Warhol on January 22nd.

This won't be the Civil Wars' first experience playing at the prestigious film festival. "We had a wonderful time [at Sundance] last year," singer and guitarist John Paul White tells Rolling Stone. "We saw some great movies and old friends, met some new friends and whiskeys. We thoroughly enjoyed playing the ASCAP stage with other artists we really dig. It makes sense that we would enjoy the festival – there's a certain kinship to what we do as independent artists. The perspectives are the same. It's inspiring."

The duo, who recently recorded a song with Taylor Swift for the forthcoming Hunger Games soundtrack, have a longstanding interest in film music. "I had – and still have – a lot of favorite soundtracks," says singer Joy Williams. "I fell asleep almost every night as a kid to the Sense and Sensibility soundtrack. I also owned the Braveheart soundtrack, and I remember being moved by how the music blended so perfectly with the film. It made me want to score a film one day."

Williams was also a big fan of the soundtracks for Empire Records, Forrest Gump, Reality Bites and Garden State. "All of those soundtracks were on steady rotation after seeing the films," she says. "Nowadays, The Hours soundtrack by Philip Glass and Yann Tiersen's soundtrack for Amelie, as well as Clint Mansell's soundtrack for The Fountain, have been playing often in my house."

Though Civil Wars are still promoting their debut, Barton Hollow, White has his mind on recording a follow-up soon. "Hopefully we stick to our guns and make a record with one criteria – pleasing ourselves," he says. "The only thing we can control is whether we like it or not. We have to let the chips fall where they may when it comes to other opinions of it."

"Indie Spotlight: Chancellor Warhol"

Chancellor Warhol is a Nashville-born, Souther-bred mc with the raw chops to turn grand ambitions into reality. His sound has been dubbed “cyber-rap”—a reference to its dreamy electro-laced grooves. An indie rock sensibility also informs Chancellor Warhol’s hooks, but there’s no navel-gazing here: in every track, the dance floor beckons. He was crowned one of three champs of BMI’s Nashville-based Road to Bonnaroo 2011 competition, earning a coveted slot at the festival in Manchester, TN. Chancellor Warhol drew a sea of people to Bonnaroo’s On Tap Lounge during his set, earning an enthusiastic army of brand new fans. -

"Live review: ACL Fest Day 2 Stevie Wonder | Fitz & Tantrums | Chancellor Warhol"

Friday we saw a bit of Chancellor Warhol while backstage at the BMI Stage and liked what we saw so much, we got up early to see them again Sunday at the Do 512 Lounge. Although the Nashville hip-hop artist played a short, three song set, it was delivered well. There is just enough quirkyness to sound original while staying true to the hip-hop creedo of MCing to pounding bass. Both shows encouraged responsive audiences. Chancellor Warhol is our surpise find this festival, We would not have guessed a hip-hop artist from Nashville could sway us, but there it is. - Austin Examiner

"I am the thread that accents, not the fabric that overwhelms.” Once in a while, true artistry comes along and the world takes notice. Chancellor Warhol is such an artist. Born Antonio Dewayne Boleyjack in Nashville, TN, Chancellor Warhol grew up engulfed in the diverse Nashville sound that shapes his very own music today. Combined with the natural love for fashion and design, he is an artist making his creative mark on the world.

Channeling an electro-rap style that is uniquely his own, Warhol released his first solo album, Japanese Lunchbox in 2010 (Voted Best Rap Album of 2010 by the Nashville Scene). His unconventional sound has earned him a place on stage at last year's Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Atlanta’s A3C and headlining Next Big Nashville’s Soundland music festival. Warhol has also supported a long list of artists, including Questlove, Kid Cudi, Wallpaper, and Yelawolf.

In 2012, Warhol will be performing at SXSW and Lollapalooza; and was also selected to be part of the Google Music Magnified Artist program that launched with a performance at the Sundance Film Festival.
