Hailing from Spartanburg, South Carolina, The Wheresville Project, winner of Hub-Bub's The Next Big Thing competition, plays original blues-inspired rock best described as Southern/Punk/Funk/Rock. Passionate about embracing and promoting the revival of Rock-n-Roll, the band is influenced by such diverse musicians as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kings of Leon, ZZ Top, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, The Allman Brothers Band, The Black Crowes, Dispatch, Dave Mathews Band and The Black Keys. They are the definition of an independent band with wide-ranging tastes.
On stage, The Wheresville Project presents an exciting and energetic performance that can be enjoyed by an audience with varied tastes. As one journalist wrote, “The growing popularity of The Wheresville Project has some wondering if they could be the next Belleville Outfit (former Spartanburg-based band). Belleville has a unique Americana sound but Wheresville has demonstrated comparable technical abilities as musicians. While this appeals to older fans, Wheresville has also managed to appeal to younger audiences with its slightly more modern, youthful original material.”
The Wheresville Project members met in Spartanburg and originally performed as Simple Paradox until the spring of 2010 when the band’s name was changed to The Wheresville Project, after Mark Miller’s Wheresville Studio in South Carolina.
