Bringing you tunes since the recent past
Established in Birmingham, AL, The Brook & The Bluff is a four-man band that consists of frontman Joseph Settine, drummer John Canada, guitarist Alec Bolton and bassist Fred Lankford.
The guys have quickly become recognized for their evocative blend of instrumental talent and vocal harmony. These elements are readily apparent in the band's debut track, “Masks.” Having initially gained momentum via Spotify, the song has helped spur the band forward in their musical pursuits.
The group's first year as a full band has been widely successful. From charting on Spotify's US and Canada Viral 50 Playlists, performing at the NAMM shows in both Nashville and Anaheim, and selling out shows in Atlanta, Birmingham, Huntsville, Nashville and Opelika, the band has had an exhilarating first year.
Originally an acoustic duo, Alec and Joseph started turning heads in local venues with clean vocals and expert guitar work. John noticed the talent and potential of the duo and offered to play drums and sing with the guys. Soon after, he officially joined the group, expanding their sound with driving rhythm and an added voice. The trio instantly locked in and have been playing together ever since. With their new bassist Fred Lankford, The Brook and The Bluff relocated to Nashville in 2018.
Christone "Kingfish" Ingram's love of music grew from the rich Gospel sounds emanating from his family's church and the Blues music he regularly heard played in his Delta neighborhood. A cousin to legendary Country music great, Charlie Pride and trained at the Delta Blues Museum under the tutelage of Daddy Rich and Bill Howl-N-Madd Perry, Kingfish undoubtedly has music in his soul.
At the tender age of 6, Kingfish began playing the drums. Three years later, he took up the bass guitar. By the age of 13, he began playing lead guitar. Soon he was fluent in all three instruments and quickly added smooth vocals to his musical repertoire.
Kingfish's guitar influences run the gamut from the Delta Blues of Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, and Lightnin' Hopkins to the electric Blues of B.B. King, Big Jack Johnson, Lefty Dizz, Albert King and Buddy Guy to the Rock of Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Eddie Hazel. Not only can Kingfish play in the styling of his idols and mentors, but he also has an amazing ability to create guitar sounds entirely his own.
Through his young career, Kingfish has shared the stage with legendary names such as Bob Margolin, Eric Gales, Rick Derringer, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy and many more. He has played music festivals and venues all over the U.S. and has performed internationally in several countries. He's been a guest on the Rachael Ray Show and the Steve Harvey Show. Kingfish even performed at The White House for First Lady Michelle Obama.
After graduating high school in May 2017, Kingfish is now prepared to release his highly anticipated debut album in early 2018.

In 2004, in a small town only about 200 miles east of Memphis, a local pop rock band signed with Fueled By Ramen Records.
The following year, their debut album turned heads nationwide, and in 2007, their second album thrust them into the national mainstream spotlight.
Three albums, a Grammy, and countless singles later, and they’ve achieved legendary status.
This is a tribute to Paramore.
