– The New York Times
Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters. Though some may refer to him as a folksinger, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing.

As Allmusic.com’s Mark Deming once noted, “Womack writes rock ’n’ roll songs about everyday stuff — falling in love, trying to stay in love, life’s ups and downs of all shapes and sizes — with good humor, a strong dose of common sense, and the smarts to understand when this stuff is funny and when it isn’t.”
Hosted by Chuck McDowell and featuring national and local, touring songwriters!

Purists Beware! Tray Dahl & The Jugtime Ragband is not jug band, ragtime, or dixieland. It is an energetic amalgamation of all the popular styles of the 1920's/30's – jazz, a little blues, a bit of swing, a pinch old time gospel, and even classic showtunes – all immersed in an early 20th century New Orleans sound.
Florida-based artist, Matthew Fowler, is the perfect storm of all the essential singer-songwriter elements: a flawlessly raw yet organic voice, intricate melodies, compelling musicianship, and an overwhelmingly rich and rootsy sound. He released his homegrown debut album, “Beginning”, in the spring of last year, comprising of songs written between the ages 14 and 19 years old. The record, which was recorded live in his kitchen back home in Orlando, was first singled out by American Songwriter Magazine who hailed: “Fowler shows the same mastery of earnest, strummy, songcraft as established artists like Damien Rice and Ben Howard.”
Since the album’s release, Fowler’s musicianship has been lauded by notable publications such as The Bluegrass Situation, CMT Edge, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and Huffington Post.

ESOEBO (Eclectic Selections Of Everything But Opera) creates music with originality, cello, guitar, and unique vocals. A duo comprised of Gail Burnett and Chuck McDowell, they blend diverse backgrounds into crowd pleasing performances.
The act expands with some of the most amazing musicians you will find anywhere. ESOEBO's first release, their critically acclaimed self-titled album, reflects the range and scope of their abilities whilst avoiding opera.
Their second release, titled ESOEBO: Live and Overboard, is an eclectic and broadly appealing collection of live performances of roots/gospel music. Their most recent release, The Journey (2015), is garnering interest further and wider and opening up new performance opportunities.
"Chuck's songwriting is as deep and wide as the Mississippi River. Optimistic and sharply perceptive - it's just great stuff." (Jen Smith - Wood and Stone Music Blog)
Chi-Town Transit Authority is a rocking seven piece band created in the image of the original configuration of the rock group Chicago. Each band member authentically recreates the sound of the original members – for example, our bass player sings the Peter Cetera parts, our keyboardist sings the Robert Lamm parts, etc.
We don’t carry any back-up singers or front of house singers so often used in other tribute bands because of the challenging vocals.
We also play a wide variety of Chicago’s catalogue, including the big hits, the fan favorites, and the soulful and rocking deeper cuts found on their first few albums.

Georgia-based artist and Nashville songwriter, WILKES fully encompasses the pop/rock sound over a country lyric. Raised in rural Cedartown, Georgia, WILKES’ parents recognized his musical gift when he started playing drums at the age of six. Around that time, he began singing southern gospel with his older brother and younger sister. In the years following, WILKES vocals developed into something special and unique. He joined pop/rock band, High Flight Society, as the lead singer and rhythm guitar player, which included a stint on Word Records/Warner Brothers Records; played in the band for Sam Hunt in the local bar and college scene; and ultimately joined well-known rock band, Disciple, as bass player/vocalist/co-lead vocalist.
Most recently, WILKES signed a publishing deal with Dan Hodges Music in Nashville, finished up a powerful run on NBC’s The Voice, and released his self-titled full production EP.
Pride in his home state of Georgia is at the core of Brandon’s music, an idea echoed in the warmth and wistful nostalgia of his newest single, “Summer Wind.” He considers himself to be a songwriter first and a musician second, having written most of the original material for his two earlier bands, Brandon Clark & The American Standard and Gin House.
Coleman is a singer and songwriter with a passion for earnest rock music, folk and Americana. Over the past decade, Chris set out to refine his skills as a guitar player, touring with a wide array of artists.
