Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Caroline Jones coproduced her album Bare Feet with Grammy-winning and Academy Award–winning producer Ric Wake (Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Trisha Yearwood). Bare Feet rose to no. 20 on the country albums chart and no. 15 on the iTunes country albums chart. The album features the single “Tough Guys,” which spent six weeks at no. 1 on CMT.com’s 12-Pack Countdown.
Rolling Stone named Jones one of the “10 Country Artists You Need to Know,” calling her “an ambitious, entrepreneurial guitar heroine primed to bring back the pop-country glory of the Nineties.” Billboard called her one of the “15 Country Artists to Watch in 2018.” Throughout 2018, Jones has been touring with artists such as Jimmy Buffett, the Eagles, Zac Brown Band, Tim McGraw, and Faith Hill.
In 2017, she was on the road with Zac Brown Band and shared the stage with Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, and Toby Keith at the Trying to Reason hurricane relief benefit concert. A live duet with Buffett led to a charity single release and, ultimately, a partnership with his label, Mailboat Records. Jones previously toured schools and universities nationwide—including underserved and charter schools with Stedman Graham—on the Heart Is Smart School Tour. Jones is the host of Art & Soul on SiriusXM.
Hailing from the north and inspired by the south, Nate Daviau (pronounced Dav-ee-o) is a Toronto-born artist and songwriter. Daviau is an engaging performer who has a natural and easy connection with people. Although he is country artist, inspired by alt-country greats like Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell, Daviau has a variety of influences from pop, folk, gospel, and jazz as well. His distinctive voice, meaningful turn of phrase, and lyrical ease partner with hook oriented melodies to make his songs catchy and memorable.
