Songwriters @ Scup: Baby, Gray & Cutler

We've got another great songwriters in the round afternoon for you. Joining us this time will be Rodes Baby, Barry Gray and Colin Cutler.
Rodes Baby is the project of North Carolina based (and Greensboro native) songwriter and multi-instrumentalist MK Rodenbough. Blending folk influences with 90s-esque indie rock, Rodes Baby crafts powerful yet vulnerable music full of earworm hooks and gut-punch phrases, painting a picture of the raw and visceral experience of young adulthood. Their debut full-length album All Of My Friends is produced by Alex Bingham (Hiss Golden Messenger, The Dead Tongues) and features collaborations from Skylar Gudasz and members of American Aquarium and Mipso. All Of My Friends strikes a chord deep in the heart, creating reverberations that resonate long after the first listen. Their vision is tear-blurred, but absolute, and as colorful as the tenacious kind of imagination that makes it out of childhood alive. Recent supporting slots for Rodes Baby include KT Tunstall, Mipso, and Noah Vonne.
Barry Gray has been writing songs since he was a teenager, but only sharing them with others outside of his family for the last ten years or so. His songs are deeply personal and tap into common human emotions and struggles. Making a difference in the lives of those close to you, both while you’re here and after you’re gone, is a common theme. He’s constantly in search of a way to capture the precious moments all humans share. Barry was the 2018 recipient of the NC Arts Council Songwriting Fellowship. Winning the Songwriting Fellowship allowed him to record his first record ‘Footsteps’ which he released in November 2018. ‘Footsteps’ meshes his sweet songs, heartfelt vocals, and tender guitar playing with perfectly placed contributions from a very talented group of NC musicians to produce a harmonious work.
A Greensboro-based songwriter toting a guitar and banjo, Colin Cutler's music spans the breadth of Americana, from Appalachian oldtime to blues to oldschool country to folk rock, with lyrics rooted in the earthy storytelling traditions of the South, his Pentecostal upbringing, and literature.
Winner of the 2022 Emerging Artists competition at the Susquehanna Folk Festival, his 3 albums and EP have landed plays on NC and Virginia public radio, the BBC, and community and college stations around the region, placement in a British zombie film, mentions in No Depression, Americana Highways, and the Alternate Root, and have taken him to gigs from North Carolina’s Martha Bassett Show, Haw River Ballroom, and NC Folk Festival, to the Jalopy Theatre’s Roots N Ruckus in Brooklyn, City of York Folk Festival (UK) and Romanian National Museum of Literature--and plenty of breweries and farmer's markets in between
