Originally formed in Wilmington, North Carolina, The Hatch Brothers are a breed of their own. Lead vocalist and songwriter, Sam Hatch, has an iconic voice that transcends genre. His songwriting approach captures stories in time with colorful chord progressions, unique time signatures, and poetic lyricism. Bassist Paul Hatch is a self-taught musician with an ear for improvisation. Paul is never afraid to play with new ideas in the moment. Drummer Phil Milligan is a master of many styles. His biggest asset is understanding exactly what a song needs. He picks his moments, and when it’s time to shine holds nothing back. Their newest member, Joe Sprunt, is the lead guitar master who undoubtedly breathes new life into the band. The overall sound is a blend of their favorite genres pulling from blues, rock, jazz and even folk in some instances. Collectively, The Hatch Brothers have undeniable chemistry and their ability to tailor songs on the spot creates a unique performance every time.

In 2010, brothers Paul and Sam Hatch began their journey in music performing at local Wilmington venues. Over time their vision grew, and they evolved into a full band, known as The Hatch Brothers. Although Phil and Joe are not technically related, the group has adopted the brother identity through and through.

The Hatch Brothers’ debut album Twelve Bar Grievances is a representation of transformation that fully encompasses the band’s spirit and energy. Some songs were written years ago while others were written just days before recording. The band’s favorite thing about the album is that there is at least one song for every kind of person out there. No matter what genre an audience may prefer, The Hatch Brothers ensure their music reaches everyone.

Well into its second decade, WHQR's Soup To Nuts LIVE! has become one of the Cape Fear region's favorite, live-listening experiences, featuring a wide array of musical genres on its stage.

STNL!'s recording process reflects its commitment to high quality, ongoing success, and the hard work of its technical staff. Each performance is engineered, multitracked, and edited into a one-hour program for broadcast on an upcoming date. In addition, WHQR forwards and cross-promotes the live event (and the later broadcast) across their website, on-air, social media, and related platforms.

Starting in 2023, Live At Ted’s joined in hosting and booking acts for the STNL! show, alternating hosting duties each month with WHQR. Ted’s listening room environment, recording capabilities, and commitment to showcasing original music made for a seamless partnership.
