August 26th Jordyn Pepper Performance!

Saturday, August 26th Jordyn Pepper will be performing at Open Eye from 8-11pm.

She is the perfect blend of organic, deep-mountain roots, folk (with a little splash of soft blues), rock and country.  Put it all together and you have the makings of an Americana artist.  Her name is Jordyn Pepper, and she has something to sing about. Recently signed to Howlin’ Dog Records Jordyn just released her first single “Back to My Roots” which is from her freshman album Mountain Rain that will be released later this year.

This Nashville based singer/songwriter is described by many as a breath of fresh air, with crystal-clear vocals and a uniqueness that only says, “That’s Jordyn Pepper.” “We here at Howlin’ Dog hear shades of Loretta Lynn, Natalie Maines, Stevie Nicks and others in the lineage of great female singers, but most of all we hear Jordyn Pepper, weaving all of these threads into a seamless expression of a young woman venturing out into the world,” Don Richmond, engineer/producer at Howlin’ Dog, said. Originally from Monte Vista, Colorado, Jordyn says growing up in a small town on a potato and barley farm with not much music influence was hard for a girl trying to find her voice.

New Espresso Lip Balm!

We’re excited to announce Carrboro Coffee Roasters have collaborated with Durham handmade body care company, Lo & Behold,  to produce an all natural espresso lip balm. The product is now available at retail outlets throughout the Triangle including Open Eye Café.

Carrboro Coffee Espresso Lip Balm is handmade by infusing freshly ground Carrboro Coffee Roasters coffee in certified organic coconut oil for over 6 hours. This rich, coffee infused coconut oil is then blended with certified organic jojoba oil, mango butter, beeswax, castor oil and vitamin E and hand poured into recyclable .25 oz. tins (plastic free!). The lip balm doubles as an aromatherapy balm, rubbing a small amount on your forehead increases energy. Keeping everything local, the label was designed by Carrboro designer and artist Suzy Porterfield of Davie Paper Co.

Carrboro Coffee Espresso Lip Balm is available at over 30 retail outlets throughout the state. For a complete list of where to find it, visit http://www.loandbeholdnaturals.com/stockists.
