Will's love for music started in the backseat of a red 1980s Beretta. There he was first inspired by the works of Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, and Bruce Hornsby. Will spent his early twenties in the hills of Appalachia, studying jazz and playing ultimate frisbee. Soon after, his desire to grow as a songwriter led him to Nashville, where he lived half a decade playing with artist such as Johnnyswim and Holly Williams. Will moved home to Kentucky in 2012, where he met his wife and reconnected with his early influences. His 2016 debut release, The Pelican and the Herring, hit #9 on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. Will is currently working on a concept album entitled, Blue Earth. White Sun. Red Mars. set to release in the Fall of 2019.
After less than a year in Nashville, singer-songwriter McKenzie Lockhart made her way back to Florence, Alabama, ten minutes away from her hometown of Muscle Shoals.
“I thought moving was what I had to do to really ‘make it,’ but I was absolutely miserable,” she says. “I missed my small town. I missed my church, my family. I missed home.”
The return home came with a new passion for the creative community that has been cultivated in Florence, as well as the motivation to make music on her own terms. This newfound motivation resulted in her second EP, Suburbs, which released February 23, 2018. Produced by her husband and recorded in their first home as a married couple, Suburbs examines the ideas of faith, relationships, and the pursuit of music.
Mississippi and Alabama got married and moved to Georgia to make music. Husband and wife team, Jeremiah and Erin Stricklin go by the moniker Oh Jeremiah to help them turn their talent and formal training into timeless stories set to the tune of life. The couple blends their folk and acoustic roots with indie-pop and americana threads that have led to several eye-catching and quirky music videos. Oh Jeremiah travels the country in the footsteps of greats like Paul Simon and Bob Dylan, adding their voices and melodies to the American tradition of musical storytelling. Their sophomore album Joymonger will arrive in 2020.
