CHRIS BARRON is the acclaimed Spin Doctors frontman. A four-album hot streak in the ’90s established them as a heavyweight of the era with 1991’s five-times-platinum Pocket Full of Kryptonite’ ruling the airwaves with hits “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes”. Barron is now a veteran approaching 50, living in a world changed beyond recognition, compelled to write the music that chronicles the here-and-now. His latest ‘Angels and One-Armed Jugglers’ is the the culmination of a lifetime’s craft and a record both contemporary and classic. thechrisbarron.com

KIM RICHEY is a legendary Nashville songcrafter. This two-time Grammy-nominated artist is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with life’s truths, Kim’s songs transport you to her world, where words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul. After a nearly five year hiatus, Richey returns with her eighth studio album, ‘Edgeland’. The term “Edgeland” is defined as the lost zone between urban and rural environments, a concept which mimics Richey’s constant fluctuation between the rigid genre definitions of country and Americana music.  kimrichey.com/

ROSIE & THE RIVETERS vintage-inspired folk anthems paint a portrait of a woman’s voice in a man’s world. The Canadian trio’s unmistakable red lipstick and pin curls may be deceiving, but don’t be fooled … their 2015 breakout record, ‘Good Clean Fun!’, brought them sold-out tours, awards, nominations, a performance for British royalty and national airplay in Canada. Their latest album, ‘Ms. Behave’, is a collection of gritty, sultry songs that feature playfully defiant lyrics and confident talk-back harmonies that empower and challenge. http://www.rosieandtheriveters.com

ASHLEY CAMPBELL is a triple threat songwriter, singer and banjo virtuoso. Following in the footsteps of a famous parent is never an easy path, and Ashley, the daughter of music legend Glen Campbell, initially pursued dance and acting. But when Ashley was asked to learn banjo for a part in a play, a spark was lit and her calling was found. Soon Ashley was studying with banjo luminary Carl Jackson (her godfather and longtime member of Glen’s band) and mastering her technique. Ashley co-wrote all thirteen songs on her debut album ‘The Lonely One’, chronicling a personal journey – by turns bold, reflective and brazenly funny – of a young woman grappling with grown up choices. https://www.ashleycampbellmusic.com/

GLEN PHILLIPS has been making music for over two decades, starting as the 14-year-old frontman of Toad the Wet Sprocket. Since then, he’s accumulated an esteemed body of work comprising eight albums with Toad (which collectively have sold close to 4 million units) and three as a solo artist. ‘Swallowed By The New’, on Compass Records, is the most intensely personal album of his career, reflecting his mastery for converting raw emotion into sound. Taking on life’s difficult transitions, Phillips delivers some of his most vulnerable songs yet. http://www.glenphillips.com/

MIPSO is an acclaimed indie-Americana quartet from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Recently recognized by Rolling Stone as an “Artist You Need to Know,” the band ventures ever-further from its string-band pedigree to discover a broader Americana where classic folk-rock and modern alt-country sounds mingle easily with Appalachian tradition. Their fifth album, ‘Edges Run’, is lush and forward moving, with lyrics that sear and salve in turn.  https://www.mipsomusic.com/
