"Totally infectious..."


Saluda Shoals has been direct support for a numerous national acts including Morgan Wallen, Jordan Davis, HARDY, Tracy Lawrence, Drivin' & Cryin', Love & Theft, Chris Lane, Claire Dunn, Chuck Wicks, and many more. 


"Saluda Shoals is one of those rare bands that possesses the perfect balance of harmony, lyric and genre. A lot of that has to do with the palpable chemistry between Henri Gates and Cassie Verhaeghe. But, it’s also because of the quality of the story and the music. I often find myself singing one of my all-time favorite songs, Tempt Me. From the first time I heard it, I fell in love. The words carry me from the first moment of meeting that special someone until the age-old fork in the road at the end of the night. We can all relate on that raw human level. Saluda Shoals’ music comes from the heart. From the soul.”

                                                                                                               – Leyla Gullen, Fox24 News

(Saluda Shoals) would be right at home on the current country or alternative hit chart and, frankly, outshine many of the current songs there."

"That song was beautiful."
