Admiral Radio was created after the discovery of an old wooden radio, tucked away in the back of a dusty, South Carolina antique shop.  Becca Smith and Coty Hoover had been going steady for nearly 5 years before that, but felt inspired thereafter to create a sound people could gather 'round to - one that is deeply rooted in a traditional style, but also has the ability to touch the heartstrings of modern-day listeners.  With sweeping harmonies often compared to The Everly Brothers, this pair of songbirds are making waves in the Carolina music community as their Johnny-and-June charm continues to turn heads.  Occasionally joined onstage by a merry band of gentlemen, each suited with their own list of accolades, Admiral Radio is sure to woo audience members across the spectrum.
