Saluda Shoals began as an acoustic project between Henri Gates (Southwood) and Cassie Verhaeghe (Brushfires). Originally called Smoking Guns, the duo began writing music and performing nightly, quickly making a name for themselves. In January 2016 the band recruited some of Charleston's best musicians and shortly after began performing as Saluda Shoals. In the short time since its conception, Saluda Shoals has released a 5 song EP available at all major online stores and has won competitions and award nominations across the Southeast. Saluda Shoals is available to assist you on your next event as a duo up to the full 5 piece band.
