    JP Harris

    Country

    In short, J.P. Harris plays Country Music. Not “Americana,” not “Roots,” “Folk,” or any other number of monikers used to describe a slew of spin-off genres; he plays from the foundation of these styles, the music that has influenced four generations of songwriters. In a world where prefixes have been added to the term “Country,” JP simply sticks to the old-fashioned sounds that have called to him. Referencing influences would be like describing each stitch in a quilt; every scrap of fabric tells a story of how the weathered and comfortable blanket came to be…

    Born six minutes before Valentine’s Day in Montgomery AL in 1983, JP’s life was to be full of color, travel, hardship, and grace from the day he first saw the world. After more than six generations in Alabama, his family would leave seeking work, first to California and then on to Nevada. He left home on foot at the age of 14, traveling via thumb and freight train, living the next 4 years mostly from a backpack, tarp, a bedroll. Eventually landing in the northeast, he worked as a farm laborer, equipment operator, lumberjack, luthier, and carpenter.

    In the summer of 2011, after two years of touring without much in the way of recorded music, Harris made a trip to the sweltering heat of south Louisiana. In an old Cajun cook shack he and a few pals pounded out an album in three days, and shortly after it’s completion, he made the move to Nashville. JP released his all-original debut “I’ll Keep Calling” in May of 2012 on Cow Island Music. Shortly after it’s release, without the aide of publicists or a large label’s bankroll, it won “Best Country Album of 2012″ from The Nashville Scene, the same honor at the Independent Music Awards, a cameo on NPR’s American Routes, and as JP says “a whole mess of other stuff in the papers and on the internet.” (Two songs were also licensed to the soundtrack of 2012’s “At Any Price,” starring Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron.)

    His latest album “Home Is Where The Hurt Is” (produced by Harris, guitarist Adam Meisterhans, and engineer Justin Francis) was recorded and mixed at Ronnie’s Place (formerly the personal studio of Ronnie Milsap) at home in Nashville. It features not your typical Music Row studio musicians, but young local players, many of whom have spent thousands of miles on the road in JP’s backing band The Tough Choices. Lending a hand on the album vocally is friend and local Indie-Country star Nikki Lane, as well as long-time friend Chance McCoy, singer and guitarist of Old Crow Medicine Show (McCoy also took rhythm guitar and fiddle duties throughout the album.)

    Rolling Stone named JP Harris one of fall 2014’s “Country Tours Not To Miss,” as well as one of “21 Must-See Country Acts at SXSW 2015.” 

    When he isn’t touring, JP can usually be found repairing an old house, splitting wood in his backyard, or digging through the trash for useable refuse.

  • Lilly Hiatt

    Lilly Hiatt

    Country

    Lilly Hiatt's third LP, Trinity Lane, is an intensely personal, autobiographical 12-song set produced by Michael Trent of Shovels & Rope, who is also featured as a musician throughout and joined by his wife and Shovels & Rope partner Cary Ann Hearst for backing vocals on album track "Everything I Had." Citing the Pixies, Breeders, Dinosaur Jr., and her favorite, Pearl Jam as influences, Hiatt’s love of the ‘90s alt-rock she was raised on shines through with distressed guitars and urgent backbeats – but there is also something distinctly Americana lurking in the songs.

    Of the album, Hiatt says, "Love will take you to the darkest places but also the most honest places if you let it. Learning how to love myself is something I’ve always been lousy with, and I spent some time on that. I thought about my sobriety, what that means to me, the struggles I’d had throughout the years, since I was a 27-year-old and hung up my toxic drinking habit. I thought about my mother, who took her own life when I was a baby, not far from my age at 30 years old, and I related to her more than ever. As you can see, there was plenty of time spent on my own. I didn’t talk to that many folks, albeit a few close friends, and leaned into my family. I stayed away from men, and danced alone in the evenings, looking out my window observing my humble and lively neighborhood. I found power in being by myself."

  • King Corduroy

    King Corduroy

    Country

    Kurt McMahan moved from Tuscaloosa, Alabama to Austin in 2007. The lyrics of Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, Guy Clarke and many other Austin legends have shaped his writing. Stirring up all the Southern flavors of Soul Music with poignant lyrics and true stories has been his mission. From the swampy sound of Muscle Shoals, to Soulsville USA, straight down through the Mississippi Delta, to the heart of the Crescent City, with the Blues that tramped across the Natural State and the melting pot that is the great state of Texas: King Corduroy "Austin Soul Stew" is ready to be served.
  • Dawn Landes

    Dawn Landes

    Folk

    Dawn Landes is a Nashville based singer-songwriter whose music you might have heard if you watch The Good Wife, House or Gossip Girl. Along with releasing five albums since 2005 (and an EP inspired by yé-yé, ‘60s French pop music), she’s a frequent collaborator with contemporaries such as Sufjan Stevens, Norah Jones and composer Nico Muhly. She has appeared with the Boston Pops, the NYC Ballet and on the TED main stage performing songs from her forthcoming musicalROW about fellow Louisville native Tori Murden McClure’s quest to become the first woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean. Dawn's 5th and most recent album "Meet Me at the River" (Yep Roc) was recorded with legendary producer Fred Foster (Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton) and features Bobby Bare, Charlie McCoy and other A-list players.
  • Sam Outlaw

    Sam Outlaw

    Country

    Sam Outlaw is a country singer living in Los Angeles. 

    He was born in South Dakota and ‘Outlaw’ is his mother’s maiden name.

    Sam writes original songs that seek to capture the spirit of the classic country music he learned from his favorite singers: George Jones, Willie Nelson, Gene Watson, Don Williams, Keith Whitley, Dwight Yoakam, etc.

    While still relatively new to the scene, 2014 has been a pivotal year for Outlaw. 

    CMT premiered his first-ever music video last Christmas, after which his second music video became a viral hit, premiered by The Bluegrass Situation and shared by thousands in the Americana community.

    Word spread about Sam’s self-released EP and live shows throughout Southern California and this buzz earned him a slot at The Stagecoach Festival in the Coachella Valley in April. He followed up this appearance with his Nashville debut at the world-renowned live music showcase, Music City Roots.

    He spent the summer writing new songs and returned to Nashville in the Fall as a featured artist at AmericanaFest.

    Sam has since completed his new full-length album, "Angeleno" produced by roots music legend Ry Cooder.

    Some of LA's finest musicians were hand-picked for the "Angeleno" sessions, including Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Gabe Witcher (Punch Brothers), Danny Garcia (Reverend Baron) as well as Jeremy Long (pedal steel), and Joachim Cooder (drums and co-producer). 

    "Angeleno" will be released June 9th on Six Shooter Records via Thirty Tigers.
