Noon - Sam Outlaw - Sam Outlaw is a country singer living in Los Angeles. He was born in South Dakota and ‘Outlaw’ is his mother’s maiden name.

1 – The Deslondes - The Deslondes (formerly Tumbleweeds) are a New Orleans-based country-soul band. In their writing and performing, they combine elements of early Stax, Sun and Atlantic records with the influence of a more raw, stripped-down sound gleaned off field recordings from Alan Lomax and Mississippi Records catalogue.

2 - Chuck Prophet - Chuck Prophet shapes his restless career with inimitable subtle flair: a vivid parade of razor-edged one-liners camouflaged in a slack-jawed drawl, songs about heartbreak and everyman heroism, drenched in twisted lines of rude Telecaster.

3 - Anthony D’Amato - Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Anthony D'Amato has received high praise for his third album and New West Records' debut, "The Shipwreck From the Shore," produced by Sam Kassirer and featuring members of Bon Iver and Megafaun.

4 - Andrew Combs - Nashville songwriter Andrew Combs weaves tales of love, sin and redemption, in a style that brings together classic country and contemporary pop, on his new album, All These Dreams.

5 - Whiskey Shivers - "Chops away at traditional bluegrass constraints with a mischievous cleaver, mixing in shadows of Delta swamps and New Orleans basements... the fierce inertia of Old Crow Medicine Show, the ramshackle folk punch of Felice Brothers and the punk energy of a pre-sobriety Deer Tick." - Rolling Stone

6 - JP Harris & the Tough Choices – In short, J.P. Harris plays Country Music. His latest album “Home Is Where The Hurt Is” was recorded and mixed at Ronnie’s Place (formerly the personal studio of Ronnie Milsap) in Nashville.

7 - Hello Strangers - Starting in Austin, and now from their home in "Pennsyltucky," sisters Larissa and Brechyn Chace, and their band, perform cheeky, wittingly noir songwriting, blending East-Meets-West alt-country with haunting sibling harmonies.

8 - River Whyless - Asheville NC's indie-folk outfit River Whyless is celebrating the release of their self-titled EP, a recording whose intricate arrangements, sweeping instrumentals and evocative lyrics are steeped in raw emotion.

9 - Tall Tall Trees - Bearded man sings songs, violates banjo.

10 - Theee Rock Wolves - We're six dudes who believe that Rock n Roll can move mountains, and we're gonna play it till we move one.

11 - Girls Guns Glory - For the past 8 years, Boston’s rising stars have been making a name for themselves through relentless touring (about 200 gigs/yr worldwide), the release of 4 critically acclaimed records, a slew of local awards, including being The Boston Music Awards 1st act of its’ genre to win Act of the Year,  and International Awards (Independent Artist of the Year / French Country Music Awards)

Midnight - Bandito Royale plays music of honorable thieves sipping tequila in a New Orleans dance hall on their way to the desert, or Mexico. We call it "salty noir…”
