Jace Everett

Having one of your songs as the title theme for a hit TV show can be a blessing and a curse, as Jace Everett found out when Bad Things was featured in the smash series True Blood. He became an overnight sensation with a worldwide bestseller and the fact that he's a red hot country rocker with an innate ability to conjure up classic songs at the drop of a hat tends to be overlooked. Here with his crack band, this is roots rock at its finest.

 Angaleena Presley

 
Angaleena Presley's background includes being a coal miner’s daughter, a native of Beauty, Kentucky, a direct descendent of the original feuding McCoys, a one-time single mother, a graduate of both the school of hard knocks and college and a former cashier at Wall-Mart. If that sounds like an entry in the book of Country clichés, it's also worth pointing out that she's a member of the platinum selling Pistol Annies, and that her solo debut record, American Middle Class, is setting the world ablaze with its fiercely uncompromising descriptions of life as it is rather than as it should be.

Frequently referred to as the heiress to Dottie West or Loretta Lynne, the signs are that it won't be too long before she's regarded as their equal. Pure Country class.
Early booking very strongly advised.
 

“Ambitious, riveting narrative. Adventurous country and roots-rock flavoured sonic ideas.” The Wall Street Journal
 

“Presley sings with a good mix of emotion and subtlety (especially on the affecting Better Off Red) on a powerful and highly impressive album.” Daily Telegraph.

Willie Watson

Founder member of the chart topping Old Crow Medicine Show, Willie Watson’s David Rawlins produced debut solo CD, Folk Singer, attracted sensational reviews on its release -

“Watson's voice carries the weight of generations past, but on Folk Singer, it's still appropriate for the one we live in, right now.” - Rolling Stone; 'He sounds like he's fallen through a portal from a century ago' – The Guardian.
 

Since then his contribution to the soundtrack of the Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis has earned further lavish praise and his unique ability to make songs often hundreds of years old sound as if they were written specially for him makes his shows mesmerising. This is a rare opportunity to see one of the most thrilling new talents in American music.


“Folk music has found a new champion, and it couldn’t be in better hands.” - Blogcritics.org.

Eilen Jewell

Variously described as “ a sweet and clear voice with a killer instinct lurking beneath the shiny surface” and being “Emotionally raw and riveting” Eilen Jewell's intoxicating mix of country, soul, blues and jazz has earned her a place at Americana's top table. Frequently compared to Gillian Welch and Lucinda Williams, but owing more to classic sources such as Bessie Smith and Billie Hilliday, she's as hard to categorise as she is impossible to ignore. Very highly recommended.


“Jewell embellishes the classic Nashville vocal approach with appealing measures of blues, pop, and jazz.” – New Yorker.


With special guest Miss Tess

"Nashville meets Brooklyn...country chic." -- Village Voice


"I don’t know of anyone else right now touring in the Americana scene that has such an eclectic, jazzy, old school and interesting vibe. There’s an authenticity present in Miss Tess’ music. It is not contrived, not too far a stretch for the skeptical imagination. She is real. And she is rare." -- No Depression.

Sam Baker

Texan Sam Baker writes and sings songs that can alternately break your heart or brighten your day. Tender, vulnerable, wise, sometimes haunting but frequently hilariously funny, Sam has earned his reputation as one of the most captivating songwriters in America. Although quiet by nature, every word he says utters a truth that others would find difficult to express. An absolutely enchanting performer, Sam's shows are unforgettable events.


“Austin's Sam Baker isn't the only grizzled outlier to make a wise, sly, and excellent set of country-folk this year, but he's the only one who wrote "Ditch," a song about a pipe-layer with a "crazy-ass wife and a baby on the way" which is hilarious, tragic, and by any worthwhile standards, one of the best country songs of the year.”
Rolling Stone's 10 best country albums 2013


Special guest is fellow Texan singer-songwriter Carrie Elkin.

"I have never seen a performer so in love with the act of singing. That's the gospel truth, and from what I've subsequently learned I'm not the only one to believe or state that. Onstage Elkin was simply a force of nature….”
Maverick Magazine
