¡Rad & Jamez! - Real Groove Music From Asheville


   When established bluegrass-rock artist Rad Andy met funk-jazz bassist James Dawkins on UNCA college campus in 2008, the musical chemistry was instant.  Both artists had a passion for a wide variety of musical styles and influences, and a talent for composition and live performance.  The two fused their sound, developing a hybrid genre-transcending creation called ‘Real Groove Music’.  At its core, the grooving, percussive guitar rhythms and funky, innovative bass lines interweave with memorable melodies, making the duo a powerful, inspirational acoustic experience.

"{¡Rad & Jamez!’s music} reminds me of what it means to be both a human and spiritual being… {and} underscores not only the exquisite pain (thankfully balanced by a bit of hope…), but also its almost primordial nature." -Carolyn Works


     Both Rad & James hold BS degrees in Music Technology, and their studio albums exhibit their mastery of the art.  Layering acoustic and electric instruments and vocals to capture powerful ballads, jammy up-tempo songs, and poppy singles, the artists collaborate with popular musical greats like Tony Williamson, Martha Bassett, and L-Fire to create a unique, amazing recorded experience.  With experience touring as a full band (at venues like Merlefest, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival and Triad Acoustic Stage), ¡Rad & Jamez! still break down very effectively and successfully as an acoustic duo to demonstrate the heart and power of these wonderful musical compositions.
