Life In the Carolina's Podcast

Nov 6, 2019

On this episode of Life In the Carolinas podcast, Carl is joined by members of the North Carolina based band, Love and Valor.

The band was originally formed in 2012 by Jesse Fox and a few friends when he was a senior in High School. Jesse was the lead vocalist, guitar player and song writer. He recalled that the name of the band was inspired from an English Literature class.

While the band has had different members over the years, Jesse still serves as the lead singer, guitar player and primary song writer. Many of the songs that are now performed by the band were written by Jesse. With hundreds of titles to his credit, he shares that the goal from the beginning was to do original music.

While Charlie Perschau was working at the Oak House Coffee shop in Burlington, he responded to a request from Love and Valor for new band members. He put his name in the hat to be the mandolin player and before long that’s what happened. Charlie shares his colorful journey from California to the East Coast where he now celebrates life with a mandolin in his hands.

Hannah Strickland is on the violin and vocals. From New York to Florida and now Elon University, Hannah’s unique approach to music and performance makes her a great fit for Love and Valor. She shares several stories about her musical journey. From light and lively to emotionally haunting, she and her violin understand how to tell a story.

While Glen Bounds was not vocal on this podcast his band mates shared stories about his varied contributions as a multi-talented musician who plays the accordion, bass, banjo and harmonic.

The group is an emerging Americana/Indie-Folk band based out of Burlington, NC. Their influences range from classic singer/songwriters such as Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, to current bands like The Avett Brothers, The Lumineers, and Mandolin Orange.

Most importantly they are finding their own voice.
