NC Songsmiths is a collective of premiere songwriters from North Carolina anchored by Bob Funck and Brian Hill of Durham, NC. This collective of 30+ handpicked songwriters from across the state of North Carolina spans assorted genres. Artists like Nina Simone, Doc Watson, The Avett Brothers, and Carolina Chocolate Drops have risen to international success, cementing North Carolina as an apex for original music. Just as those artists come from all walks of life, NC Songsmiths each bring their own unique brand, sound, and story.
The Western NC Songsmiths tour series is an event patrons can attend weekly at each venue without ever tiring of the material, as the Songsmiths are in a constant rotation throughout the year! EchoMix Artists handles all promotional aspects of this tour series, including local radio promotion, Facebook advertisements, print advertising, and postering.

The NC Songsmiths also put on showcases featuring multiple North Carolinian songwriters performing solo at house concerts, breweries, and music venues - creating a listening room environment. The intimate concerts highlight the rich songwriting talent of the state. After each artist performs a solo set, the Songsmiths join together for an unrehearsed finale. Audiences remain engaged while the artists add glistening guitar licks and spontaneous vocal harmonies over each other's tunes. These high-level displays of homegrown music draw from a pool of top North Carolina Songsmiths ranging from seasoned veterans to rising young stars and often feature popular band leaders who may rarely get the chance to express their songwriting and lyrical prowess in a solo performance.
The NC Songsmiths shows are intended for the serious listener, giving way for the Songsmiths to reach into their extensive song vaults, bringing to life some of the very best original music from the Old North State.
