Press Release

Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams - This husband-and-wife duo is led by guitarist/producer extraordinaire Larry Campbell who has played with Levon Helm, Paul Simon, Phil Lesh, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, Keith Richards, Cyndi Lauper, Hot Tuna and Mavis Staples. “Rolling Stone” called his eight-year stint with Bob Dylan "the greatest period of the Never Ending Tour." In addition to his Grammy wins with Helm, Campbell has won the Lifetime Achievement Award (2008) and Instrumentalist of the Year Award (2013) from the Americana Music Association. Singer/wife Teresa Williams has been called “a hidden treasure.” Campbell recently sat in with The Roots on “The Tonight Show” and, last month, the two performed four songs on one of the final “Imus in the Morning” shows. This summer, supporting their self-titled release, they will open shows for Jackson Browne's fall dates — and play in his band. 

Jarekus Singleton - Equally rooted in rap, rock and blues traditions, 30-year-old Jarekus Singleton is turning heads in the blues world and may very well personify the new wave of blues.. Hailing from Mississippi, Singleton has been playing blues clubs and festivals across the country, from Mississippi to San Francisco with stops in the mid-west and East Coast. In 2009, he formed The Jarekus Singleton Blues Band and issued his debut CD “Heartfelt,” in 2011. Singleton was named a "star on the rise" by Blues & Rhythm magazine in the UK. Guitar Center named him “The 2011 King of the Blues in Mississippi.” He received the Jackson Music Award for “2012 Blues Artist of the Year” and for “2013 Local Entertainer of the Year.” The Jackson Free Press named him the “2013 Best Local Blues Artist.” While in college, Singleton was a top-seeded basketball player until an injury sent him back to playing music. After a short stint as a rap artist, Singleton began combining his rap wordsmithing with the music of his Mississippi heritage. His new CD, “Refuse To Lose,” was released by the venerable Alligator Records label. 

Los Aztex - A new breed of Latin band that draws from Hispanic influences around the world, Joel Guzman and Sarah Fox formed Los Aztex in 1999. Rhythm guitarist Gabriel Guzman, lead guitarist Chris Mosle, and bassist Mark Epstsein round out the lineup. Aztex is extremely familiar with the musical styles of Central and South Texas, however it takes from traditional rhythms of Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Panama and combines it with Blues and Jazz. Sarah Fox brings the expressive, versatile voice of a jazz singer to Latin themes, and Joel Guzman dazzles audiences and fellow musicians with his unique accordion artistry, causing established and respected accordion players to christen him, at an early age, “El Pequeno Gigante”. This genre-bending outfit has managed to stay out of the pop-culture limelight and like it that way. Aztex remains humble, easily approachable individuals with varied taste in music and talent to spare.

Tyler Childers – Hailing from Paintsville, Kentucky, and a region made famous for its lawlessness, religion, and booze; Tyler has heard a tale or two about the misadventures of a few good ol’ boys and he gives his own spin of these accounts behind a whisky-soaked voice well beyond his age of 22. Drawing influences from greats like Townes Van Zandt, Jason Isbell, John Prine and Ray LaMontagne, Childers latest EP is Live on Red Barn Radio.
