David Serby: There's old-time poetry to David Serby's songs. Each song tells a story -- some make you want to dance, some make you want to drink -- and all make you believe Dave's a man who knows how to do both.
The Far West:
The Far West have an authentically Americana sound that’s been described as something like Waylon’s band jamming with Wilco. Their songs are highly personal, introspective and original and betray a deep love of American music. In keeping with the W theme one also hears a little Willie, Whiskeytown and Woody, as in Guthrie, in their music. Their songs are highly personal, introspective and original and betray a deep love of American music that runs from ‘Nashville Skyline’ to the Opry of the 1950’s, from the red dirt of South Texas to the streets of Bakersfield. It’s music you can dance to, start a brawl with or cry in your beer over, however the spirit moves you.
Mark Lennon & The SouthernTier: The SouthernTier are a Los Angeles based Americana band playing a mixture of Country, Bluegrass and Roots Rock. The SouthernTier is fronted by North Carolina native Mark W. Lennon who released his full length debut album, Home of the Wheel in 2011. Compared to 2009’s much talked about EP, Down the Mountain, Home of the Wheel has a raw - stripped down sound, due in part to producer Marvin Etzioni (Lone Justice). The SouthernTier are currently working on new material for an upcoming release.
