Becky Shaw is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter in Decatur, Georgia. Currently a member of Atlanta’s Roxie Watson, & the 70's cover band, Susi French Connection, she has performed on many stages over the past 25 years, including Eddie's Attic, The Variety Playhouse, Red Clay Theatre, The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, The Pier in Seattle, New York's CBGB's, The Knitting Factory & The Bitter End. Becky released her first solo record, “Shut Down, Jump In,” in January of 2016 and played many of the instruments on the album. Although she plays guitar, drums, harmonicas, flute, piano, accordion, lap steel & ukulele, she considers her primary instrument to be her voice, which has been described as "clear as a bell - rich and haunting.”
DEDE VOGT has earned a gold record for her work with The Indigo Girls and sings with a deep, husky voice that echoes with experience. She is responsible for helping to nurture the Atlanta music scene and has led the way for folk musicians for quite some time. As a multi-instrumentalist, her wide range of influences and provocative style help to create magic. “She has been my idol for so long, I used to sneak into her shows at The Harvest Moon Saloon when I was 16 and then I’d come home and try to play her songs. She is the backbone and then I’d come home and try to play her songs. She is the backbone of the acoustic scene.” – Michelle Malone
New Orleans and Atlanta artist Sonia Tetlow is musician who studies the craft of song, a songwriter who performs with abandon, giving herself freely to the moment of live music making. She has fronted her own bands and played multiple instruments in others, including guitar, mandolin, bass, and banjo. She has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists such as Patti Smith, Indigo Girls, and Hootie and the Blowfish. She has toured nationally as the bass player for Cowboy Mouth and the guitar and mandolin player for Paul Sanchez and the Rolling Road Show, and regionally as the banjo player for Roxie Watson and guitar player for STB. Tetlow's songs also have been performed and recorded by artists such as Bonerama, Glen David Andrews, Paul Sanchez, Arséne DeLay, Cowboy Mouth, Roxie Watson, Maid of Orleans, and Jamie Vessels.
Her latest record, “Now,” released November 3, 2017, reveals Tetlow at her purest, in songwriting and soundscape. Produced by bassist Ben Williams (B.E.N), Tetlow’s songs are wrought large by an Atlanta-based cast of musicians sourced by Williams and recorded at Billy Hume’s studio, The Zone, by engineer Luke Campolieta. Josh Birmingham on drums, Matt Henderson on Rhodes keyboard and Moog synth, and Jimmy “Bones” McAlpin on electric guitar crafted a distinctive rock sound under Williams’ direction. Amy Ray of Indigo Girls and Seersha also provided guest harmony vocals.
