Welcome to Rusty Knuckles Music, Carolina Still

There are many forms of music that make the body move and gyrate to the sounds around them, but few resonate with southern Americana culture the way Carolina Still does. Their grass roots sound is infectious and worn in from years of playing a variety of music styles. We are damn proud to be working with the fellas and stoked they will be recording the new album with J.B. Beverley and Buck Thrailkill over at Rebel Roots Studio. If you are looking for Americana story tellers that will give you a shit eatin' grin within a few minutes look no further. Welcome to the team fellas!

"Carolina Still is an acoustic band with a new sound and an old-time feel. They will take you down on the farm, out into the tobacco fields, and down a dirt road with a trunk full of 'shine; you never know where they might take you. One thing's for sure, you will be schooled in southern American culture after listening to their music.

They blend musical styles such as old-time, bluegrass, country, blues, rockabilly, punk, and many more. Their sound is deeply rooted in traditional music but is delivered with a more progressive edge and a great amount of energy.

The musicians that create this sound are: singer/songwriter, banjo picker, & guitarist J. Alan Casey. Adam Jones on the upright bass. Robert Norman on vocals, guitar, and fiddle, and Billy Smith on vocals and drums."
