About the band


Caroline Barlow and Kurt Westie spearhead this Americana roots band. The group is joined by an interest in keen songwriting, ballads, driving storytelling, and stylish instrumental tunes. Russ Hucek’s pedal steel brings an energetic and elegant melodic tone to the group while Chris Michels carries the bass with funk and steadiness. The North Carolines bring you sweetness with an edge with both their original songs and material from other writers. It’s a fresh, yet familiar, sound for your ears.
