Andy Davis http://www.andydavisonline.com/
Louisiana-born Andy Davis broke onto the scene back in 2004 with a charming, acoustic debut called “Thinks of Her,” that quickly spread among college campuses nationwide. Based in Nashville, TN then, Davis quickly hit the road opening for artists such as Jakob Dylan, Mat Kearney, Dave Barnes, Matt Wertz, needtobreathe, and more, collecting fans one city at a time.
Since then, Davis has released six studio albums, including two produced by Mitchell Froom (Randy Newman, Crowded House, Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow), one of which was made possible by a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $41,000 in 30 days. Davis was also a founding member of the “Ten Out of Tenn,” a critically-acclaimed collective of Nashville singer/songwriters (Griffin House, Katie Herzig, Matthew Perryman Jones, Andrew Belle, etc) who joined forces in super-band fashion for a collaborative tour, documented in the award-winning film, “Any Day Now.”
In 2018, Davis launched a project called “Save the Song Fairies,” where he is writing and recording a new song every week for the entire year—52 songs in 52 weeks—and releasing them exclusively to his song club members (visit patreon.com/andydavis for more info).
A multi-instrumentalist with old-school charm, a 12-year track record, and a pulse for the often irregular heartbeat of human relationships, Andy Davis continues to engage longtime fans and win new ones.
John Gooslby http://johngoolsbymusic.com/
Steeped in Mellencamp-style storytelling with countrified heart and the right dose of rock ‘n’ roll attitude, St. Joseph, MO singer and songwriter John Goolsby introduces his “country soul” sound on the independent full-length debut The Midwest. Influenced by Chris Stapleton, Conway Twitty and Otis Redding, he taps into the spirit of classic country and Americana with a modern spin. As listeners began to quietly embrace The Midwest, Goolsby went on to share the stage with everyone from Will Hoge and Pat Green to Tyler Farr and Randy Rogers Band. Alongside producer Andy Davis, he’s crafted a record that might just make you feel at home.
Megan Slankard http://www.meganslankard.com/
Megan Slankard has independently sold nearly 40,000 copies of her five self-released albums, and she is currently touring extensively across the US, performing brand new songs from her planned 6th independent release in late 2018. Her fifth, and latest release, Running on Machinery, was recorded with the help of Nashville producer Alex Wong (Vienna Teng, Delta Rae), and her preceding album, A Token of the Wreckage, was recorded with help from David Bryson (Counting Crows) and Jerry Becker (Train).
Megan and her songwriting have received national and international recognition: in 2017 she won first place in the Unsigned Only Music Competition (AAA Category) and was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, in 2016 she was a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, and in 2015 she was a two-time "Vox Pop" winner in the Independent Music Awards, a finalist in the USA Songwriting Competition, and a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Contest.
Megan's adventures have also included a 50-date Guitar Center tour sponsored by BOSE, touring with Dire Straits co-founder David Knopfler throughout Europe, duets with Pat Monahan and Train, co-writing and performing on a song for KFOG's Breast Cancer Research charity drive (featuring featured guest singers Hozier, Florence Welch, Steve Earle, Grace Potter and more,) playing electric guitar on Jimmy Kimmel Live with Jeff Campbell, singing the National Anthem at AT&T Park for the San Francisco Giants on three separate occasions, singing on Glen Keane's animated short Duet, and even participating on two episodes of TLC's reality makeover series, What NOT to Wear.
