"Gorgeous harmonies, thrilling arrangements, and some remarkably insightful, honest writing. " - Sing Out!
The Honey Dewdrops
The Honey Dewdrops
ListenWatchWebsite
After a long stretch of living on the road, performing and writing across the U.S., Americana songwriters and Virginia natives Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish, collectively known as THE HONEY DEWDROPS, decided to settle down in Baltimore, MD. "Touring is like collecting images of landscapes, sounds of voices, contents of stories, moods of places and environments," says Wortman. "All of that can be useful. It tells you something about human nature, about how the world works, little by little.” And so the couple took their experiences on the road, and dug in to write and record their fourth album, TANGLED COUNTRY, in their new home. It’s a beautiful and engaging take on modern American roots music and the first album of theirs entirely written, arranged, and recorded in one place; a testament to the power of home.

Throughout Tangled Country, Wortman and Parrish perform as if the most honorable thing to be is honest in themselves. Tangled Country bears witness to The Honey Dewdrops' simply being themselves, stewards of the Americana tradition, having seen the world and grown a little older and now finally come home.

Bugle Boy Talent Trust Artist
Elizabeth Wills
Elizabeth Wills
ListenWatchWebsite
Elizabeth Wills is the 2009 Bugle Boy Founder's Choice Award Recipient and by proclamation, January 28th is Elizabeth Wills Day in Fayette County.

In her first studio project in seven years, Every Little Star, Wills is featured on lead vocalist and on piano, her first instrument. “I’m over-the-moon happy about it,” she says. “Since I was a kid, the piano has brought me comfort and peace and has been the vehicle through which I could allow my thoughts and emotions to run freely across the keyboard.” Such freedom and beauty comes through in the album, which she says was worth the wait. “These new songs were ready to come on out,” she explains of the timing. “I have been through what seems like a couple of lifetimes in the past several years, but there was immense beauty and lessons gracefully given to me to learn and walk through. I wanted an album that reflected that growth and that movement."

Influenced by writer-artists Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and their contemporaries, Wills bases songs in honesty, goodness, and vulnerability. Fans relate, and the industry has taken notice as well. Wills has played notable festivals like ACL, South by Southwest, Kerrville Folk Festival, Austin City Limits Festival, Southwest Regional Folk Alliance, The Backyard and more. She enjoys regular airplay on college radio stations across the country and NPR affiliates in Austin, Dallas, and Fort Worth, and she has guested on the nationally syndicated radio show "What D’ya Know."

Award-winning Singer/Songwriter
Radney Foster
Radney Foster
ListenWatchWebsite
In late Fall 2015, Foster got the diagnosis every musician fears-- a severe case of pneumonia and laryngitis. However, for someone who’s been producing songs for almost 40 years, the desire to write doesn’t fade along with the voice. During a grueling six week period of vocal constraint, Foster’s creative side emerged in the form of a short story inspired by the song, titled “Sycamore Creek,” and the idea for Foster’s newest endeavor was born.

For You To See The Stars is a project comprised of two parts – a book and a CD. The book is a collection of short stories published by Working Title Farm. Though the stories are fiction, they are informed by Foster’s upbringing on the Mexican border in Del Rio, TX. The story that most closely resembles memoir, “Bridge Club,” is a humorous and poignant retelling of the song “Greatest Show on Earth,” a recollection of playing music with family and friends on the back porch on a Saturday night. For You To See The Stars is Radney Foster’s eleventh album. Foster has written eight number one hit singles, including his own “Nobody Wins,” and “Crazy Over You” with duo Foster & Lloyd. His discography contains countless cuts by artists ranging anywhere from country (Keith Urban, The Dixie Chicks, Luke Bryan, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) to contemporary (Marc Broussard, Hootie & The Blowfish, Kenny Loggins, Los Lonely Boys).

Zac Wilkerson
Zac Wilkerson
ListenWatchWebsite
Zac Wilkerson is a SOUL ROCKER from the COUNTRY. Powerful, soulful vocals and a driving guitar style combine with poignant songwriting to deliver a new take on Americana, Soul, Country, and Rock.

Wilkerson stumbled into a career in music after being tricked into entering, and eventually winning, The Blue Light Live Singer Songwriter contest in 2011. The prize was a Solo Acoustic set at the 2012 Larry Joe Taylor's Texas Music Festival in Stephenville, TX. He has since etched out a strong following across the Texas the music scene and beyond, with his work appearing in Nationally Syndicated and Regional Radio, and Local and Prime-Time Network TV.

Wilkerson cut his musical teeth in a country church where he started singing at 4. At a young age, he discovered his parents' country, soul, Motown, rock, and folk records, creating a musical foundation with as much variety as passion. By 12 he played several instruments, including piano and guitar, which led to songwriting that same year. The musical voice that has evolved since is a fresh take on Rock, Soul, Country and Americana evoking Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Bonnie Raitt, and Levon Helm.

"A fresh sound that incorporates a slew of influences while equally utilizing the unique talents of each musician." - Norman Transcript
Molly Venter
& Goodnight Moonshine

Molly Venter
ListenWatchWebsite
Goodnight Moonshine is Molly Venter's latest musical project, a collaboration with her husband Eben Pariser. Co-writing often, Eben and Molly explore what it means to be in a healthy authentic relationship; both wholesome and irreverent, they sing of joy and grief in equal measure. Molly's voice bends from a sweet moan to a gritty shout and back into a playful run in the space of a few bars and "it all goes down like silk," writes American Songwriter Magazine; "few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly Venter." The emotional potency of her voice is surrounded and supported by a lush landscape of harmonies and minimalist orchestrations conceived by Eben on vocals and electric guitar. Molly’s voice has caught the ear of industry giants, and been prominently featured on FOX television, Apple Computers and in Warner Brothers films. Consummate performers, Molly and Eben have also appeared nationally and internationally, performing 100+ shows a year, with their respective bands Red Molly and Roosevelt Dime. Their co-write "Willow Tree" was a #1 hit on the folk charts in 2014 and was featured in USA Today. The group tours as a trio with Adam Chilenski on upright bass.

"Superior chops and golden harmonies."
- Austin Chronicle

Wood & Wire
Wood and Wire
ListenWatchWebsite
With a pedigree that includes the South Austin Jug Band, Rodney Hayden, and Green Mountain Grass, this band has a Texas edge while hewing closer to traditional grass than any Austin act in years. Superior chops and golden harmonies by guitarist Tony Kamel, mandolin player Matt Slusher, bassist Dom Fisher, and banjo picker Trevor Smith allow them to tackle history on "Coal Mining One," and burn hot on the instrumental "Nothin' Wrong." Other Austin bands twist bluegrass to their own methods, so it's refreshing for Wood & Wire to not only play it straight, but to do it with unexpected vigor. ”I think I'm most proud of how we've developed our sound together," says Kamel. ”It feels great to step on stage feeling like we've really found our own style.”

A night of brilliant songs and heartfelt stories with
Adam & Chris Carroll
Adam Carroll
ListenWatchWebsite
Adam Carroll: A Texas Songwriter born and raised, Adam Carroll takes the events of ordinary lives and turns them into deeply moving, often humorous songs. With seven Indie CDs supporting regular tours across the USA, Canada and Europe as "one of the hippest songwriters on the Texas music landscape", this engaging Americana guitar-picker has earned further critical acclaim with song placements in the Grammy nominated film, Country Strong and others. “The core of what I do is songwriting; it's the one thing I'm passionate about. It's the most fulfilling and challenging job I can imagine." explains Adam.

From his studio records produced by Grammy Award winner Lloyd Maines (South of Town, Lookin' Out the Screen Door, Live at Cheatham Street, Far Away Blues) through to his latest releases (Old Town Rock N Roll, Hard Times with Michael O'Connor, Live at Flipnotics), the quality of his songwriting stands out.

Chris Carroll: Chris Carroll is originally from St. Catharines, Ontario. She now lives in San Marcos, Texas with her husband and music partner Adam Carroll. Carroll’s music does a little bit of genre hopping, pulling in influences from all over the map, but her music is still deep within the Americana roots and has the ability to draw in an audience. Chris released her debut record, “Trouble & Time” in 2014, produced by David Beck (Sons of Fathers & Blue Healer). Susan Gibson says of Chris' work: "Her recording, Trouble & Time, has so many expressions...just like a human face. Tracks like "Mister" smirk at you while "Dreaming You Up" has a Mona Lisa smile quality to it. Each song emotes such intimate eye contact, just like her live performance, and I don't think Chris will be the first to blink."

Raleigh, NC ­based Chatham County Line—Wilson, John Teer (mandolin/fiddle), Chandler Holt (banjo), and Greg Readling (bass, pedal steel, piano)—formed in the late 1990’s. The story behind the workmanlike group’s newest release—available via Yep Roc Records—is simple: A veteran ensemble at the top of its game sticking to its considerable strengths—poignant songwriting and inventive acoustic arrangements that draw upon a broad array of American roots influences, highlighted by trademark three­ and four­part harmonies that shine throughout. But like the flat­screen televisions that now dot those bowling lanes, the quartet respects its history—from bluegrass inventor Bill Monroe to innovators like John Hartford—while remaining mindful of more modern influences, including its members’ backgrounds in rock bands.
