ARLO McKINLEY is the last artist John Prine and his son Jody signed together to their label Oh Boy records. McKinley’s Oh Boy Records solo debut, DIE MIDWESTERN, is deeply rooted in street soul, country, punk, and gospel and draws on personal stories, set against the backdrop of his hometown of Cincinnati Ohio. After, he almost gave up on music altogether, his story is one of hope and sincerity, and he is living proof that great songs will reach the right ears eventually, even if it takes time.

He has performed at renowned venues across the globe, including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, and is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.
LILLIE LEWIS is a classically trained, award-winning singer/songwriter from New Orleans. Lewis is said to have “Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s virtuoso commitment to her instrument and Odetta’s vocal power, creating a show that is a force of nature.” Opening for Alana Davis, Dr. John, Kirk Joseph, Kermit Ruffins, Henry Butler and Jon Cleary to name a few, the social justice themes and human rights messages that filter into her lyrics, as well as her gospel-tinged vocals and instrumentation are a direct result from her upbringing spent listening to her father’s sermons and southern choirs while learning the northern sensibilities of her civil rights activist mother.
