Joey Wit & The Definition
Joey Wit & The Definition
As he sings in his song, Throwing Stones, “...I’m a son to the North and a brother to the South”, Joey Wit’s story is just as unique and original as his sound. As a former professional athlete, it would seem Joe dedicated the majority of his life and childhood to the game of baseball. However, music was just as important as athletics in his upbringing. Growing up in a household with parents whose record collection included everything from Chet Atkins, Duane Eddy and Elvis Presley to Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones, it’s easy to see how the Connecticut native gravitated towards rock and roll. After spending several years in the American Southeast (Durham, NC) working on his musical craft, Wit returned home to New England in 2015 and started recruitment for his rock and roll band, now known as The Definition (Clay Selmont-Guitar, Guido Falivene-Bass, Nate Manware-Drums, Nathanael Oakes-Keys). Drawing on inspiration from countless sources such as the Beatles, Radiohead, Wilco, Doves and Ryan Adams; Joey Wit and The Definition offer an innovative and energetic approach to rock and roll with a little something every music fan can appreciate.

Porch 40 delivers a hip take on modern Rock & Pop while capturing a hint of cool that can only be attributed to the Funk. The band formed in 2012 at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. Word of their electric live performances quickly attracted regional attention and a loyal, growing following.

Porch 40 recently released their highly anticipated sophomore album Radio Edit. This project showcases a diversely talented band always pushing their boundaries. The album is produced by Robert Mercurio from Galactic; mixed/mastered by Count aka Mikael Eldridge (Radiohead, Blink 182, The Revivalists, Portugal the Man) and was tracked at Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans, LA.

In 2014 Porch 40 recorded their first album Spread It Heavy at Reflection Sound Studios in Charlotte, North Carolina, with Mark Williams (Southern Culture On The Skids) engineering, Jamie Hoover of the legendary Spongetones producing, and the renowned Dan Millice mastering. They were the last band to record in that historic studio.

From festivals such as the famous Bele Chere in Asheville and the highly touted Sweetwater 420 Fest in Atlanta, to clubs across the southeast including The House of Blues in New Orleans, The Orange Peel in Asheville, and The Fillmore in Charlotte, the band has a committed and wildly dedicated fan base.

Porch 40 is especially known for their extraordinarily intense live shows and high level of musicianship. They have shared the stage and performed with Blues Traveler, Galactic, The Doobie Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, REO Speedwagon, Leftover Salmon, Jackie Greene, Tauk, Big Something, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, The Suffers, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and more.

One of the most original and talented bands to come out of North Carolina, Porch 40’s engaging songs and energetic shows make them favorites everywhere they perform.

Porch 40 is:
Scott Burr - Vocals/Saxophone, Andrew Duncan - Vocals/Rhythm Guitar, Carter McDevitt - Vocals/Bass, Mitchell Metz - Vocals/Violin and Brett Wilson - Drums.
