THE CIVIL WARS consists of the fantastic John Paul White, hailing from Florence, AL and the lovely Joy Williams, originally from Santa Cruz, CA, but now residing in East Nashville. The duo’s chance meeting a year and a half ago fueled an immediate songwriting chemistry and creative synergy. Their second show ever, performed at a sold out Eddie’s Attic, was recorded and released as a free digital album. Of the duo, Reg’s Coffee House host, Scott Register, praises, “In my 13 years on the radio, few of the artists I’ve championed had as immediate a reaction as The Civil Wars. When I first spun ‘Poison & Wine’ listeners couldn’t get enough of it and wanted to own it immediately. This band has the ‘it’ factor that you look for. Don’t miss out.”

Barton Hollow, the full-length debut from The Civil Wars, will be released February 1 (Sensibility Music). The album comes on the heels of a breakout year for the duo, whose remarkably successful free/live album has been downloaded over 100,000 times. Additionally, their 2009 four song EP,Poison & Wine, debuted at #4 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Top Albums chart. The EP’s title track and first single was played in full on “Grey’s Anatomy” (episode 609, “New History”) and its accompanying music video has been viewed over 415,000 times on YouTube. Of the song, Stereo Subversion declares, “…your ears are immediately gripped by a haunting sound both simple and pristine…breathtaking…”

With special guest WHITE DRESS.
