Roanoke is a rising Folk/Americana band based out of Nashville, TN. Roanoke uses their undeniable musical chemistry to create a unique and captivating sound full of cultural influences, roots instrumentation, and catchy, memorable melodies. Their self-titled debut album Roanoke is an invigoratingly classic Americana album filled with modern yet vintage tunes. Roanoke has struck a balance between folk, the ear candy appeal of pop, and the roots authenticity of country music. With over 500,000 plays on Spotify, they are set to shake the alternative Americana Folk scene in no time.
"...Brimming with optimism, youthful exuberance and creative energy...promising band that’s definitely on the rise. " - The Huffington Post
"Roanoke is led by Joey Beesley and Taylor Dupuis, who weave together beautiful, yet relatable, songs of love and the journey of life. Their soaring harmonies will provide immediate appeal to fans of bands like The Civil Wars, The Lumineers, or The Head and the Heart, and their backing band (Zach Nowak, Kyle Breese, and Jo Cleary) sounds just as tight as a group of grizzled, road weary musicians throughout the album."

Porter Oaks calls North Georgia home, they have from day one. When the music begins it's clear this sound comes from somewhere near the mountains, but it ain't Bluegrass. Hell, I don't know what to call it but it sure could stir the soul of the lost.
