GABRIEL KELLEY is a brilliant performer who has developed a national following as the opening act for GREGG ALLMAN. From his family farm in rural Georgia to music school in Sweden, from a songwriting company in Nashville to street corners and clubs in every city in America, this Georgia folkie has matured into a homegrown artist with a grassroots following. Kelley second album ‘Lighter Shades of Blue’ was crowd funded through a kickstarter (his second successful campaign).  http://www.gabrielkelley.com

SHEL is Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza, four classically trained musicians who happen to be sisters. Emerging from the artist colony of Fort Collins on the Eastern slope of Colorado, SHEL is sophisticated and youthful, emotional and lighthearted, classic and eccentric. SHEL’s engaging live show is marked with a prodigy’s creativity and a veteran’s instinct for entertaining. ‘Just Crazy Enough’, the second full length album from the virtuoso indie-folk band, is front-to-back album statement the band has been preparing to make since they began making music. Check out their 180 degree flip on Metalica’s “Enter Sandman”. http://www.shelmusic.com/

SAMANTHA FISH is one of the most brilliant, exciting performers of the blues in the world. … yes, on this planet. Only into her mid-20s she already shared the stage with well-established to the legendary artists from Tab Benoit and Johnny Lang to Buddy Guy. All that ambition and passion paid off in 2012 when Samantha won a Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut. Her latest is ‘Wild Heart’ on Ruf Records and was produced by Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars. She was recently nominated for another Blues Award for the Best Contemporary Female. http://www.samanthafish.com/

TERRY “HARMONICA” BEAN is one of Mississippi’s hidden treasures:  a contemporary hill country bluesman, lifelong resident of Pontotoc, who has created his own distinctive version of the harp-blowing, guitar-grooving one-man band.  Although he’s long past the dues-paying stage, Bean has played with some of the most important bluesmen to come out of Mississippi in the past two decades.  Bean is also a generous and spirited teacher and is consciously dedicated to “keeping alive” older styles of blues. Since 2002 he has released six self-produced CDs that document both his band and solo performances. https://www.facebook.com/TerryHarmonicaBean

ANDY MCKEE is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists. His youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique. McKee’s crossover success has helped him to achieve millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today’s most unique and influential artists. McKee is the first artist to be signed CGP Sounds, the record label founded by fellow guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. ‘Live Book’ is McKee’s first release for the label. http://www.andymckee.com/

CHRISTIE LENEE unique guitar work is often compared to visionaries like Michael Hedges, Joni Mitchell and Dave Matthews- fusing folky/funky playfulness with pop/rock inspired songs and virtuosic guitar compositions. Christie was endorsed by Engler Innovations to compose music for “The Engle,” a drumstick for guitar that launched onto the market in January of 2012. Being a compositional pioneer for this product inspired an abundance of innovative techniques and a unique percussive approach to the guitar. Christie is now in the process of mixing tracks for her next album that will deliver her innovative music, empowering vocals and inspirational lyrics  http://christielenee.com/
