A dedicated follower of the American underground music scene, singer/songwriter Leisure McCorkle brings a healthy knowledge of the classic alternative scene to his brand of energetic hard rock. Starting in the mid-90’s, he recorded the lo fi Nappy Superstar on an 8-track in 1997. Put together with very little money, the recording still commanded a good response from music critics and helped his live shows develop some longtime fans. Following with American Ghetto Pop Machine, McCorkle expanded on his work with better writing and better production, even scoring a licensing deal with MTV that resulted in several songs being included in their reality shows. By 2002, Jet Set Baby became the hardest rocking album in his canon as he continued to explore the boundaries of poppy alternative rock with a full backing band.
Leisure appears on WXRY Unsigned on Sunday, April 16, 2017 broadcasting LIVE from The British Bulldog Pub at 8PM.

The Forgotten Man is a rock n’ roll outfit based out of Raleigh, NC, which has drawn comparisons to bands such as The Replacements, Modest Mouse, Marmaduke Duke, and Ramshackle Glory. The Forgotten Man’s material is composed primarily by front man Wilson Getchell and draws from numerous genres including punk, folk, country, grunge, electronica and doo-wop. The band’s songs are about success, failure, personal interactions, love, hate, friends, enemies, and alcohol. The songs are both impassioned and sardonic; comical and foreboding. Getchell’s lyrics juxtapose the profound with the inane, using humor as a tool to provide insight into the world around us. Morever, when people hear The Forgotten Man’s music, they tend to “get down”. It’s a whole lot of fun.
