"TRAVERS BROTHERSHIP & FEATHERPOCKET AT NEIGHBORHOOD THEATRE"

But first, Charlotte’s own Featherpocket took the stage, seething with strings and the restless optimism of young people. The vocals (delivered by guitar-wielding Jason Cline) were raspy with the disillusionment of realizing that getting what you want doesn’t come as easily as getting the good ball at recess or the last supermarket rotisserie chicken. Jason’s vocals had a bite to them, like the PBR he was slugging between songs. This is the sort of bite that can blend in just as easily with a loud, grungy sound as with the quieter (but no less animated), Americana that was unfolding before my ears. Featherpocket inspired the youngsters grouped in front of the stage to hop and bound in a pattern of movement that would result in a faceplant (and possibly blood), were a Yankee like me to attempt it. The strings – two guitars of varying voltage (Jason and Spencer Bloodworth), one bass (Cameron Gersh), and one banjo (Clint Lemonds) – came together like the perfect sandwich, four ingredients in perfect harmony. Featherpocket creates the sound of the mountains, towering rocks populated by trees, visited freely by breeze. See them if you can; they’ll make you feel at home. - Libro Musica

Bio

Lead singer and acoustic guitarist Jason Cline had an elaborate epiphany when he was living in Portland, Oregon. As he walked from to St. John's Bridge from his house, Cline found a number of feathers. Thinking nothing of it, he picked them up and put them in....the front pocket of his shirt. The next night - still wearing the same shirt with the same feathers from the day before - Cline was attending Holy Smokes and the God Forsaken Rollers show. Cline's buddy Johnny Holliday was talking outside, "I'm gonna put microphone in my banjo and rap into it. I'm gonna be Banjomouth." Cline, looking at the feathers in his pocket, "yeah, and I'll be Featherpocket."

Featherpocket is a 5-piece band, consisting of Spencer Bloodworth on pedal steel guitar, Clint Lemonds on banjo, Ryan Collins and Cliffton Bundick on the bass, Jason Cline on acoustic guitar, and Jacob Bohan on the drums.

​Featherpocket has performed across the nation in North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, ​Texas, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and California, and has shared the stage with the likes of Lillie Mae, the Blackfoot Gypsies, Boy Named Banjo & many more.

Featherpocket's self-titled album was released into the world on May 11 2019.
