TELLICO SIGNS WITH AMERICANA AGENCY

Asheville-based band Tellico is proud to announce that they will join the roster of the Americana Agency. The announcement comes on the heels of their new, independently-released album Relics and Roses. Read full announcement here.
 
 “We are thrilled to be working with John Laird and Lucy Haislip again,” says Anya Hinkle, of Tellico (www.tellicoband.com). Hinkle, Ballance and Stiglets were formerly on Americana’s roster with the band Dehlia Low. “They are incredibly hardworking folks that give us a lot of support for what we do. It’s a great partnership: we believe in them—they believe in us. It should be a wonderful opportunity to build on the momentum of the new album, and they will be able to help us reach stages and regions that will be a great fit for us.  We couldn’t be happier!”
 
Tellico, which has been focused mainly on the southern Appalachian region, is looking forward to expanding its touring radius in 2016.  “We are thrilled to represent Tellico and it’s brand of ‘Appalachiacana’,” says John Laird of the Americana Agency. “Their music is a perfect fit with the other bands on our roster, and will be well received by many of the festivals, venues and concert series’ we work with regularly.”
 
The Durham, NC-based agency represents a number of Americana acoustic bands and singer-songwriters such as The Stray Birds, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys and Jonathan Byrd (www.americanaagency.com). 
 
In partnership with the Americana Agency, the band is hoping to solidify their presence state-wide while building into other regional markets, in addition to some runs further afield in places where the album is getting a good response. “It’s really exciting to see this all coming together; 2016 will be an exciting year for us!” says Aaron Ballance, of Tellico.
