Event Details

Join us at Shiloh & Gaines on Friday April 15 for a very special show featuring local Asheville legend Datrian Johnson with Lafayette, Louisiana (by way of Norway and California) artist Rainy Eyes. These two rising stars are cooking up something special. The night will begin with a set from Rainy Eyes and a set from Datrian and then a set with both of them on stage combining forces. You can expect a lot of soul, a lot of vibe and a damn good time.


Born into music, Datrian Johnson was singing in church from his earliest days and by the time he was 12, he found himself featured on BET’s legendary series Bobby Jones Gospel. One of the most in demand vocalists in North Carolina and beyond, the past few years brought Johnson on stage singing lead for North Mississippi Allstars, The Word and now Funk You. He’s been writing and recording at length with Luther Dickinson and John Medeski, who he also collaborates with on Saint Disruption which brought him together with Warren Haynes for a remake of “Imagine,” and he’s sat in and stole the show with heavyweights like Steve Kimock, Oteil Burbridge, Vernon Reid, Empire Strikes Brass and Brian Jackson. Johnson is also the full time lead singer for Asheville’s psychedelic soul band The Fritz and helps front the hip-hop/R&B band Free Radio. Johnson also just launched his own project Datrian Johnson & The Family Tree which will be touring in the later part of 2023 and will release their debut album in early 2024.

Cosmic Appalachian Soul! Woody plays a style that doesn’t fit neatly into any one style but is a genre-bending fusion of rock, blues and soul.
