One of the country’s pre-eminent singer/songwriters, Rosanne Cash has released 15 albums of extraordinary songs that have earned four GRAMMY Awards and nominations for 11 more. While Cash’s best-known work fell under the broad heading of “country,” there was always an intelligence in Cash’s material and a soulful tone to her vocals that set her apart from her peers, and she was never afraid of using rock and pop flavors in her arrangements.
Widely considered one of the most influential figures in nuevo flamenco music, he incorporates elements of flamenco rumba, jazz and many forms of world music into his work.

Famously crowned as “The New Queen of Bluegrass” by the Wall Street Journal, and the most decorated artist in that field. Vincent’s music incorporates savvy contemporary touches while drawing deeply from the authentic traditions of classic bluegrass, with a flawless band that can execute break-neck instrumentals to heart wrenching ballads.
Sierra Hull has been recognized from age 11 as a virtuoso mandolin-player, astonishing audiences and fellow-musicians alike. Now a seasoned touring musician, Hull has delivered her most inspired, accomplished, and mature recorded work to date; no small feat. Weighted Mind is a landmark achievement, not just in Sierra Hull’s career, but in the world of folk-pop, bluegrass, and acoustic music overall. With instrumentation comprised largely of mandolin, bass, and vocals, this is genre-transcending music at its best, with production by Béla Fleck and special harmony vocal guests Alison Krauss, Abigail Washburn, and Rhiannon Giddens adding to the luster.
Sugaray Rayford is a colossus of an entertainer with a voice so big it could knock a house down, yet at times, so tender it could “move you to tears” (UK Vibe). “A true badass marrying the funky soulfulness of classic R&B records while acknowledging contemporary sensibilities.” (Pop Matters)
So, “Sit back and listen to one of today’s best blues-soul singers. Even better, attend one of his live performances where his energy can totally galvanize an audience.” (Elmore Magazine).
