PETER MULVEY has pursued a restless, eclectic path as a writer and musician – immersing himself in Tin PanAlley jazz, modern acoustic, poetry, narrative, and Americana stylings over the past 20 years. Mulvey has a rare ability to hold an audience’s attention and transport them, using wit, humor, and a subtle but sophisticated melodic and harmonic sensibility to gracefully introduce complex and provocative concepts and characters. Relentlessly touring as a headliner he has also shared the stage with luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Richard Thompson, Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls, and Greg Brown, and has attracted an audience that stretches from Anchorage to Amsterdam. His latest record, produced by Ani DiFranco for Righteous Babe Records, is called ‘Are You Listening?’ http://www.petermulvey.com/

LISA BIALES weaves a down home blues vernacular with finger style guitar to create songs that feel like they have been around forever. Following in her mother’s / parent’s footsteps, this little ol’ gal from Ohio graced the silver screen (acting and singing) in Francis Ford Coppola’s movie “Twixt.” Inspired by a found recording of a song her mother wrote, Lisa goes back to her roots on her latest album ‘The Beat of My Heart’. http://www.lisabiales.com

AMY BLACK has always been drawn to soul singers. But it wasn’t until she began exploring her own southern soul roots for her last album, The Muscle Shoals Sessions, that she found her musical sweet spot — and knew her next stop had to be the place where blues and soul converge…Memphis. Released on her own Reuben Records, ‘Memphis’ puts Black — already considered “a bluesy, R&B heavy hitter” by Elmore magazine — on the same continuum as soul sisters from Dusty Springfield, Ann Peebles and Mavis Staples to Bonnie Raitt and Shelby Lynne.   http://amyblack.com
