Kyshona Armstrong

Kyshona Armstrong, a music therapist gone rogue, has a natural gift for using music to tap into emotion. She began her career as a music therapist, working in mental health hospitals and correctional facilities, writing music with her patients and using music to redirect behaviors and emotions. Kyshona soon found the need to write music independently to help her process her daily experiences with her clients.

Audiences will often find a common thread of overcoming, hope, and empowerment in her songwriting and storytelling. She uses her emotional intelligence to create her unique bluesy and soulful style of music. Her latest album, "The Ride", shows off vocal stylings that are reminiscent of Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Al Green.

Kyshona has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Wynonna Judd, Lake Street Dive, Meiko, Margo Price, Even Stevens, JD McPherson, Anthony David, Cracker, and many more. Deemed “One of the most compassionate and uplifting young voices in Nashville today.” by NPR Music’s World Cafe, Kyshona’s music has been heard on Issa Rae’s (HBO’s Insecure) short film series, and major prime time television shows on ABC, CBS and NBC.

Shannon LaBrie:
Music by Nashville chanteuse Shannon LaBrie defies genre and brings to life insightful stories
of a woman who remains true to herself in a life where uncertainty is certain. The Lincoln, NE
native instantly became a favorite among music fans and critics alike with her powerful 2016
album War & Peace. With lead singles, "Alcohol," and "It's Political" the independent release
reached inside the Top Ten on iTunes, Spotify's US viral chart and Triple A Radio.

Tracked live at Nashville’s House of Blues Studio, War & Peace is an emotionally-charged
collection of deep Americana soul that gives voice to the love and loss LaBrie experienced
throughout her life.
“Her songs unfold with style and subtlety, coasting over the albums lush arrangements via
LaBrie's gorgeous voice. It's as if Jeff Buckley and Norah Jones started a band that went a tiny
bit country.”
-Rolling Stone

"She's part Tom Petty, part folk goddess, with Dylanesque lyrics.”
-CMT

LaBrie, has opened for ZZ Ward, Valerie June, Billy Bob Thornton, Robert Randolph, Rayland
Baxter, The Head & The Heart, and Shakey Graves. Add to her resume over 6 million streams
and her first album cut on Robert Randolphs, 2018 Grammy Nominated album "Got Soul.”

The Krickets:
The Krickets are a female swamp folk group from Florida's Gulf Coast. Produced by Ben
Tanner of the Alabama Shakes, they released their debut album 'Spanish Moss Sirens' in May
of 2016. Folk harmony-driven with an earthy acoustic instrumentation, the music is what Paste
Magazine describes as "a truly stunning, one-of- a-kind sound."
Recently named the 2016 IMEA Folk Artist of the Year and recipient of the 2016 Folk/Singer
Songwriter Song of the Year at The Independent Music Awards, the group originally came
together to play a cancer benefit in honor of Cristina "Cricket" Russell. Now, they are able to
support the cause by donating a portion of every album sale to The Cricket Fund and Beyond
which provides women's health services to the uninsured in rural Florida.
Band members:
Melissa Bowman (vocals, guitar, banjo), Emily Stuckey (vocals, guitar, percussion, mandolin),
Lauren Spring (vocals, guitar, fiddle, mandolin) and Katrina Kolb (bass)
