Press Release

Stephen Kellogg - Influenced by singer/songwriters like John Prine and Cat Stevens, as well as classic rock bands like the Eagles and The Band, Massachuset native Stephen Kellogg crosses many stylistic boundaries. He issued solo releases in 2000 and 2002 but it was 2004's “Bulletproof Heart” that landed him a deal with Universal Records. “Glassjaw Boxer,” his 2007 release with his longtime band The Sixers, made it into “USA Today’s” “Top Five of the year.” Kellogg has shared stages with Train, Sugarland, OAR, and Josh Ritter, while his songs have appeared in numerous films and TV shows including “One Tree Hill,” “Men of a Certain Age,” and “Mercy.” His current release is titled “South, West, North, East” and, as the name implies, was recorded in different regions of the U.S. The 20 songs range from Southern rock (recorded in Nashville and Atlanta) and a cowboy motif (recorded on a farm in Boulder, CO) to an indie rock feel (recorded in a cabin in Woodstock, NY) and a singer/songwriter format (recorded in Washington DC).

Peter Case - After founding L.A.’s rocking Plimsouls, Peter Case began his solo career in 1986 and helped launch the “unplugged” movement - and, in the process, quickly became a favorite of artists including Bruce Springsteen. With a few Plimsouls reunions in between, Case continued issuing a string of acclaimed solo albums. His 1986 solo Geffen Record debut earned him his first Grammy nomination for the song "Old Blue Car" as well as the No. 1 spot on The New York Time's 1986 “Best CDs” list. In 2000, he compiled a tribute to Mississippi John Hurt featuring contributions from Lucinda Williams, Dave Alvin, and John Sebastian. Four years later, Case celebrated 20 years as a solo artist with the release of the compilation “Who's Gonna Go Your Crooked Mile?” “Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John,” issued in 2007, earned him his third Grammy nomination. “The Case Files,” a collection of demos, outtakes, live tracks and other odds and ends draw n from Case's solo career between 1985 and 2010, appeared in 2011. In 2015, Case returned with a new studio album, “HWY 62,” which features guitar work by Ben Harper.

Miranda Mulholland - Classically trained on violin and voice, Miranda Mulholland is a member of the group Great Lake Swimmers, and has become an in-demand fiddler and singer who can cover a wide range of styles. She is also a member of Belle Starr and Harrow Fair, a duo with Andrew Penner of Sunparlour Players. Mulholland has sung and played fiddle with Jim Cuddy, Steven Page, Calexico, Joel Plaskett, Rose Cousins, and Alan Doyle, and has toured with the celtic rock bands The Mahones and The Peelers, The Paperboys, The Glengarry Bhoys and the alt-country band Luther Wright and the Wrongs. She studied Opera Performance at The University of Western Ontario and McGill University and has appeared in various theater presentations. Her debut full length solo album, “Whipping Boy,” was released in 2014 on her own Roaring Girl label, which has quickly gained a reputation as a home for diverse artists.

Will Hoge has been through the wringer. Since launching his career in the late '90s, the Nashville singer-songwriter has grinded it out on the road, touring through the dead of winter in an RV with no heat; released albums that, while critically acclaimed, didn't result in the kind of commercial success many predicted; and even stared down an early death, surviving a wicked traffic accident in 2008, an experience that framed his poignant 2009 album The Wreckage. Yet Hoge has persevered. And that live experience is woven throughout his latest project, Small Town Dreams, a collection of songs ranging from Stones-y rock 'n' roll to Kristofferson country, that reflects an artist taking stock of where he is as a father, a husband, a man.

​Kinky Friedman A Texas original; author, activist and musician Kinky Friedman has reinvented himself yet again, this time with his first all new studio album in nearly forty years. Just signed to Avenue A Records/Thirty Tigers, Kinky, with the help of producer Brian Molnar and guitarist Joe Cirotti, presents an "all new Kinky," with his cd, 'The Loneliest Man I Ever Met.' Filled with never-heard-before Kinky originals and beautifully rendered covers of such artists as Tom Waits, Warren Zevon and Willie Nelson, the new cd is all about Kinky's ultimate ability to deliver much more than just a funny line or humorous tune. The spare, yet lush arrangements all point up Kinky's unique talent as both a songwriter and interpreter of great material. Guest performers Nelson, Little Jewford and Mickey Raphael support but never override the simplicity and grace of the tunes and the artist.
