Warrick McZeke with Austin McNeill

Warrick McZeke

Country Singer/Songwriter Warrick McZeke grew up in Loris, South Carolina. A graduate of Clemson University followed by a degree at North Carolina Central University that led to a career as a Speech Pathologist, Warrick always dreamed of singing, but never knew how.

That was until one night, June 29, 2017, “God spoke to me saying, ‘You should write a Country Music song.” And for whatever your spiritual beliefs, it’s hard not to see some kind of hand in the seemingly unrelated chain of events, circumstances, and coincidences that led an African-American Speech Pathologist to a career in Country Music.

Days earlier Warrick enlisted the help of his college roommate, Country Music Superstar Lee Brice with the proposal to his girlfriend at the 2017 Carolina Country Music Fest. In asking Josie to marry him, she echoed the words, “I Will Absolutely Marry You!” He would turn those words into a song, and “Miss Absolutely” was the song that sparked his transition into Country Music.

Since the release, he has performed along the east coast singing songs from his debut EP “C’Mon”, and his most recent single “Small Town” can be heard on all streaming platforms. Warrick is preparing to release new music this Spring, so be on the lookout for his “Show Me The Girl” Pre-Save.

Austin McNeill

Austin McNeill (27) was born and raised in Salisbury, North Carolina. His musical roots began at the early age of 5 singing in his hometown Southern Baptist church choir. Austin grew up in a musical family that heavily influenced his taste for Country, Blues, Rock and Roll, and Motown. At the age of 15, he received his first guitar and taught himself to play without ever taking a single lesson. When he moved to Charlotte in 2014 to attend UNC Charlotte he began playing in venues and bars all across the state honing his craft and cutting his teeth.

In 2019 he formed his first band Seven Day Haze based out of Charlotte, NC. The band has acclimated to great success playing in all of the city’s most iconic music venues. With country music at his core, a solo country album has always been in the cards for Austin. His debut single and EP title track “Carolina” share with listeners his love for southern nostalgia, where he’s from, and how he was raised. He is happily married to his beautiful wife Mrs. Elise McNeill.
