October 20, 2018 The Rough and Tumble
The Rough & Tumble is a multi-instrumental folk-americana duo consisting of Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler. While they consider their beloved PO Box location to be Nashville, the couple has been living on the road with their two dogs for two of their five touring years. The Rough & Tumble delivers each performance with the nudge of an elbow, a wink from the right eye, and the sincerity of Pinocchio after his rehabilitation. Their 2016 release, Pieces and Pieces, was written for the dually named Alyssa Pearson film, and delved into themes of women, war, and PTSD. Their recent release, Cardboard and Christmas Lights (Rock Candy Recordings), is a 7 song EP that brings any R&T fan– new or long time devout– up to date with an uncomfortable smile on their somber face. Their upcoming full length album, We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know, is expected in early February 2018.
November 17, 2018 Rupert Wates
His music is an eclectic mix of acoustic, melodic art/folk, with flavors of jazz, vaudeville and cabaret. He has released nine solo CDs. They have received outstanding reviews in the international online press and tracks from them have been played on radio all over the world. In addition, Wates’ songs have been covered by other artists in the UK, Canada and the US. Two full length tribute CDs to his material have been recorded: ‘Crazy Puzzle’ (2015) by Nashville-based performer Roxie Rogers, and ‘Wide Open Heart’ (July 2017) by Los Angeles vocalist Susan Kohler.
Despite Wates’ British background, and underpinning the universality of his music’s appeal, Folk And Acoustic Music Exchange has called him “a prime figure in American music” (www.acousticmusic.com) and goes on: “This is one gifted sonofabitch… If you’re not hip to this guy yet you’re missing out.”
Audiences everywhere respond to Wates’ brand of melodic art/folk—haunting songs that ring true. Check him out on his
