Canadian-born Townes has the lyrical fortitude of Griffin or Lori McKenna, the soulful nature of Chris Stapleton or even Adele, but Townes is paving ground all her own. Working on her debut LP with Jay Joyce, Townes started her journey to becoming one of Country’s most promising new artists back in rural Canada, in the backseat of a car. Once settled in Nashville, Townes spent her days songwriting and her nights at guitar pulls or at the Bluebird Cafe, studying everything she could. Eventually, she scored a publishing deal with Big Yellow Dog and headed into the studio with Joyce. Together, they tapped into her organic nature and her sheer ability to tell a story and emote it through the visceral range of her vocals – tender, bluesy, wise and full of wonder but never naive.

The Cadillac Three
A three piece 'country fuzz' band from Nashville. Childhood friends, these boys have seen more ups and downs than a Smoky Mountain tour guide. But in spite of all the trials and tribulations (or perhaps because of them) The Cadillac Three has emerged with a sound all its own, a sound that hovers between radio-ready country anthems, hard-and-heavy rock and traditional Southern folk.

Country singer-songwriter Michael Ray was a hit right out of the box, scoring both with critics and on the charts. With Country Aircheck boasting there are 'big things on the horizon for Michael Ray' and his live shows lauded by USA Today as simply 'lip-smacking good', the Florida native backed up that praise with two number ones from his 2015 self-titled debut album with Kiss You In The Morning and Think a Little Less.

Twinnie’s songs are steeped in country, but really they’re powerful pop with bewitching stories at their core. Sometimes they stray in to rock, often they embrace electronics.
