Ian McFeron, whose writing has been compared to Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams and John Lennon, weaves together a variety of popular, rock, and Americana styles to create his own take on roots-American music.

McFeron got his start in the Seattle after his self-produced debut album was picked up by a major commercial radio station there.

Jon Shain grew up in Haverhill, Massachusetts, a Merrimack River mill-town that had already seen its better days by the time he was a child in the 1970s. His family?s business was a small textile dyeing company, and he worked in the factory during the summers throughout his teens. At the same time, Shain began to discover his love of American roots music and songwriting, specifically drawn to the narratives about regular people and themes of social justice.

Shain headed south to North Carolina in 1986, to study American History at Duke University and to continue his musical journey, as well. In addition to studying with jazz professor Paul Jeffrey, he also had the good fortune to learn the piedm...

**Miche will be a headliner at the 2015 Listening Room Festival in Florida - for the 2nd time!** Born and raised in West Philly, Miche would sneak down to the basement to practice on his brother's drum kit while his brother was out playing ball and being a regular kid. After he was discovered and kicked off the drums, he took up the guitar that his brother had abandoned the year before. This time he holed up in his room teaching himself to play. He didn't get everything right as a leftie, he flipped the guitar over and tuned it straight up the neck.

From the very beginning, he had his own sound. His teen years were spent as a neighborhood band leader teaching anyone who got an instrumen...

Kelley McRae grew up in Mississippi but called Brooklyn home before teaming up with guitarist Matt Castelein in 2011, when the duo traded in their NYC apartment for a VW camper van and hit the road.

Drawing comparisons to Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, the duo’s music is wide ranging - comprising haunting ballads, tender love songs, and energetic guitar driven songs full of hope. Paste Magazine’s 4 Star review raves “Kelley moves ef...

Jaspar Lepak (pronounced JAS-per LEE-pack) is a folk/Americana songstress whose remarkable gift for melody is only surpassed by her poetry.

Sweeping across landscapes with an emotional depth that is extraordinary, her lyrics expose a brave vulnerability while her clear, pure voice touches the heart.

Lepak started writing songs just after college while living in Minneapolis. Between 2004 and 2009, she recorded five albums, and in the fall of 2009, she moved to Durban, South Africa with her husband Kale. Lepak’s music found an enthusiastic audie...

2012 Independent Music Award VoxPop Winner!!

Background vocalist on Martina McBride's 2013 & 2012 Christmas Tours

"Girl, you sound like a neat glass of single malt in a world of Michelob Ultra." Those were the words of Grammy award-winning songwriter Mike Reid ("I Can't Make You Love Me") when he heard Kira Small sing. This sultry, soulful siren combines the smoothness of Norah Jones, the rawness of Bonnie Raitt, the hip-ness of Adele and the flat-out-wailing of Aretha Franklin. Delivered with her huge heart, even huger voice and wicked sense of humor, Kira's spellbinding original songs and R&B classics seem to snuggle right into listeners' laps.
