About the Artists

Haley Dreis
Haley Dries has loved all types of music since she was 6 years old.
Currently, Dries is a student at the University of South Carolina,
where she is studying music and journalism. She uses her classical
training as a base and taught herself how to play guitar a year ago
during a break in her studies. Dreis is making waves in the New York
City music scene with her debut indie release, Beautiful to Me, now
available on CDBaby and iTunes.

Liz Howell & Dave Petty
A resident of Charlotte, Howell began playing guitar and writing songs
when she was a teenager. After partnering with Tyger Wade in 2004,
they released their debut folk-country self-titled CD in 2006 on
CDBaby. Their second CD, released in 2007, has a rich, bluesy feel.
Recently, Howell went solo, but has teamed up with Dave Petty to write
a few country songs. Petty, also a resident of the Queen City has been
playing the local coffeehouse scene for more than 10 years. His sound
has been described as country driven by rock progression with The
Eagles, Radney Foster and Pat Green as influences. Both Howell and
Petty are members of the NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association
International), and have recently entered their works into CMT's song

Also, every Sunday at Yn Wine Café is Martini Sundays. Patrons can
enjoy one of our perfectly mixed martinis for just $6 – Sunday nights
never tasted (or sounded) so good. For more information about the
