Phillip Lammonds is a songwriter and talented instrumentalist from the musically rich mountains of North Carolina. From his childhood in the mountains to his time in the South Carolina Lowcountry, it was this melting pot of sounds and rhythms that formed his musical sensibilities. When pressed, Phillip describes his musical and writing styles as “raking through a toolbox in the dark.” In his opinion,“Songs aren’t really written, they are caught like a fish. They’re out there swimming around. But they aren’t always biting.”
After college, Phillip was a founder of The Blue Dogs, a beloved and critically acclaimed bluegrass and rock inspired jam band. He then started his family in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina while working as a fishing guide, a falconer, and the owner of the islands Southeby’s real estate company. All the while, Phillip wrote songs and traveled to Nashville to pitch them. After fifteen years, fifty or so trips to Nashville, and cuts on major artists—Hootie and the Blowfish, Josh Turner, Craig Morgan—Phillip moved to music city to pursue songwriting full time. He stepped onto the scene with a publishing deal from Curb Entertainment and a back catalog nearly five hundred songs strong. Phillip’s songs have been recorded by artists like Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Edwin McCain, Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler, Mo Pitney, and Dylan Scott.
From British Columbia, Canada, Singer/Songwriter Andi Zack-Johnson has written songs recorded by artists such as Brothers Osborne, Josh Thompson, Danielle Peck, Etta Britt, Drew Gregory and others… Vince Gill recorded two of Andi’s songs with his daughter Jenny Gill for her debut album released in late 2016. She also co-wrote Josh Thompson’s smash hit, “Beer On The Table” and long time Delbert McClinton band vocalist Etta Britt’s “Make It Fast”, which was featured on Good Morning America. Look for Andi’s song “Heart Shaped Locket” on Capital recording artist, Brothers Osborne’s grammy winning debut album, Pawn Shop. Andi has also released her own CD called “Love Party”. The unique new CD features 11 songs all written on the ukelele. The project was produced by 2 time Grammy winning producer Skidd Mills along with Aerosmith keyboardist, Buck Johnson. Andi and her husband Ken Johnson are also known as the popular children’s music duo, Huck and Lilly and have released two albums, “Theres a Tree Growing in My Room” and Sunshine” which have produced seven singles on Sirius XM radio. Ken and Andi are also cast members of the hit television show and Ryan Seacrest production, “I Love Kellie Pickler” which has now aired for 3 seasons on CMT.
