Best known as Mike D., frontman of rowdy indie rock band I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch in the House, Michael Dean Damron is a true singer/songwriter at the core. Damron puts his rabble-rousing aside for a more melodic and heartfelt mix of country, blues, rock, and soul. His debut album, A Perfect Day for a Funeral, was produced by Fernando's Lewi Longmire and issued by the Portland-based imprint In Music We Trust in spring 2005. ( http://www.allmusic.com )

Devil in a Woodpile is a band from Chicago, Illinois. Although they routinely give a fresh sound to 80-year old songs, their repertoire and instrumentation categorizes them as a country blues or jug band.
Throughout 9 albums released over the last 10 years, Turner Cody has slowly but surely become the modern prince of the break- up song, embracing the genre from every angle whether it be romantic, realistic, uplifting, heartbroken or even downright bleak. He is often backed by musicians from the bands Herman Düne and Beirut. ( Last albumin 2015- PlansAndSchemes )
Trailer Bride was a Chapel Hill, North Carolina-based alternative country rock band signed to Bloodshot Records. Formed in 1993, the band consisted of Melissa Swingle (vocalist, guitarist), Robert Mitchener (bass guitar), Brad Goolsby (drummer), Bryon Settle (guitarist) and Scott Goolsby (guitarist). In the summer of 1997, after the release of their first album, Daryl White replaced Mitchener as bassist. The band is known for a southern gothic sound, with lyrics reminiscent of the works of Flannery O'Connor. Their songs are described as "spooky", and often contained dark themes of death, sin and sex.

TTS Brooks has called Berlin, Germany residence for the last couple of years. The California born singer/songwriter first toured Germany in 2009 after the release of his debut album, 'Tertiary Allotment Is A Delightfulness' (Snowstorm Music), and hasn't stopped since. Having now included to the list Italy, Spain, England, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, Brooks continues to tour, write and record, bringing out new albums along the way. In his erstwhile project, Minmae, who recorded 10 full-length albums in as many years, Brooks mixed Byrds-like jangle-pop with sonic detours into psych, drone, and experimentalism. Brooks' new music virtually eschews all instrumentation, and his live shows are intimate and sincere, imposing focus on the stories, recollections, observations, and appeals that make up his lyrical universe. Hinting at Americana and modern folk, his voice straddles somewhere between Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Townes Van Zandt, and and the late Vic Chesnutt.
