Matthew B Mayes is the founder, principal songwriter, lead singer, Guitar and Guijo player for Jupiter Coyote. He has been playing music professionally for 30 years and has recorded 18 albums with Jupiter Coyote, The Raptor Trail, and his solo projects. He has played thousands of shows, toured everywhere, and sold a truck load of albums, streams and downloads. His song writing has been compared to Robert Hunter and Bob Dylan and he pulls from a wide range of experiences and millions of miles of travel. His songs cover a lot ground, stylistically and lyrically. Some are introspective and soul searching, some are wry and cynical. Many of his songs are autobiographical stories about his life, as seen through the eyes of a working musician who has spent thousands of hours on the road. He is a true musical treasure that serious music lovers outside the mundane pop culture should discover. Matt is a genre bending musician, a prolific writer, and an accomplished player. He even invented the Guijo, a half Stratacaster, half banjo instrument. He is best known in the southeastern, US, where Jupiter Coyote did and still does have a substantial following. Jupiter Coyote has been labeled "mountain rock," which has been defined as a multi colored blend of good ole southern boogie and country rock, with a nice dose of bluegrass infused, grooving funk. Think of a southern fried Phish with better song writing.
Matt has also released 4 albums with The Raptor Trail and JC members John Meyer and Gene Bass. A melodic prog band, a richly layered and sophisticated form of progressive rock music with very intelligent lyrical content. Imagine if the Allman Brothers and Rush were is a jam session, and Pink Floyd had a Guijo player. Do yourself a favor and listen to some of it.
Matthew is currently touring with Jupiter Coyote and performing
solo listening room shows and house shows all over the US.

From singing at the top of her lungs while driving a '96 Chevy Cavalier in the Florida Panhandle where she grew up, to the first time she recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, music has always been an innate catalyst for Laura Rabell. Although her 9-5 life in Charlotte, North Carolina, was devoted to a career in marketing, Rabell's desire and love for music didn't go away. So she took a leap that so many others wish they could, ditching corporate America for Americana.
Since relocating to music city, Rabell's proven herself worthy as one of Nashville's rising songwriters - she's got a song to sing, but more importantly, a story to tell.
Rabell, who drew from storehouses of grit and perseverance as she battled breast cancer in 2019 while putting the finishing touches on her debut album, Immortal, is eager to channel that energy into life as a troubadour in 2020 - touring, playing music and making new fans.
This veritable badass doesn't shy away from exploring the dark side of life and love in her songwriting - through lyrics possessed by a poetic darkness that is undeniably juxtaposed by her warm and friendly personality. The album combines this mystifying depth of character and Southern noir perspective with unique and lush musical landscapes of producer Dave Coleman's Alt-Country invention.
Folk Legends may seem to be a pretentious name, but it may be the only name appropriate for the collective talents of George Grove, Rick Dougherty and Jerry Siggins. These three men have been involved with music from the great Folk Era since the actual days of the great Folk Era.
Along the way, all three gentlemen became close friends with and performed on the same stages with the best known names of the folk and the folk-rock eras: Peter Paul & Mary, Tom Paxton, Judy Collins, Barry MacGuire, The New Christy Minstrels, The Brothers Four, The Chad Mitchell Trio, The Mamas & The Papas, The Association, John Sebastian, Josh White Jr, The Limeliters, Glenn Yarbrough, The Kingston Trio, Pete Seeger... Yes, this is a list of musical icons, but it is also a list of people with whom they've performed, traveled, written songs and shared meals. These are the friends and memories Folk Legends brings to life with the memorable and exciting music of the Great American Folksong Book™.

Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Darrell Scott mines and cultivates the everyday moment, taking the rote, menial, mundane, and allowing it to be surreal, ever poignant, and candidly honest, lilting, blooming, and resonating.
The words he fosters allow us to make sense of the world, what is at stake here, and our place in it. And ultimately, Darrell knows the sole truth of life is that love is all that matters, that we don't always get it right, but that's the instinctive and requisite circuitous allure of things, why we forever chase it, and why it is held sacred.
Darrell Scott comes from a musical family with a father who had him smitten with guitars by the age of 4, alongside a brother who played Jerry Reed style as well. From there, things only ramped up with literature and poetry endeavors while a student at Tufts University, along with playing his way through life. This would never change.
After recently touring with Robert Plant and the Zac Brown Band (2 years with each), and producing albums for Malcolm Holcomb and Guy Clark and being named "songwriter of the year" for both ASCAP and NSAI, these days find him roaming his Tennessee wilderness acreage hiking along the small river, creating delicious meals with food raised on his property and playing music.
He often leads songwriting workshops to help people tell their own truths with their stories, and is as busy as always writing, producing, performing, and just plain fully immersing himself in life.

Charles Wesley's sound is shaped by the time weathered hills and hollers of his home. Charles is a singer-songwriter born and raised in West Virginia. Nowadays, if you want to find him, you'd look in any dive bar, café, or live music venue in Appalachia.Charles didn't find music at an early age like many other artists. It wasn't until he was nineteen that he picked up a guitar and began singing songs.
He did however, grow up trout fishing in Upshur County streams, hunting on the Allegheny ridges, tagging along with his grandfather on the farm, and listening to old-timer's talk about their days in his grandparent's general store. Charles Wesley's father was a coal miner until his birth and his mother was a schoolteacher. Little did he know, this background would come to play a major role in the songs and stories that captivate rooms full of listeners today.
He's grateful to have shared the stage with artists such as Shooter Jennings, David Allan Coe, Luke Combs, Tyler Childers, Sundy Best, Waymore's Outlaws, Aaron Watson, Colter Wall, and many more.
Whether he's performing solo for a room full of patrons who've quieted to a barely audible murmur or a music hall full concert goers breaking in their boots to the rhythm of a Union Sound Treaty tune, Charles Wesley turns heads and opens ears everywhere he plays. His stories strike a chord in all of us and his voice gets the point across with a genuine authority.
After touring for six years in his alternative country band, Young America, folk artist Taylor Alexander moved to Nashville, where he busked on the streets for money. Later, Alexander would go on to turn chairs as a contestant on Season 12 of NBC's The Voice, choosing to train under the tutelage of Adam Levine.

Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet relatable music of our time.
With 20 years of writing, touring, and entertaining under his belt, he shows no sign of slowing down with his new record, Don't Let the Devil Ride, breaking genre barriers and topping charts, putting a new twist on his already-entertaining live show.

Predominately a self-taught musician, Olson is well known for his use of alternate tunings and two-part unison singing that then breaks into harmony.

Upon leaving the Jayhawks, he formed the Original Harmony Ridge Creekdippers in 1997 with Victoria Williams. That band, later called the Creekdippers, made seven albums.

"The biggest truth in this record is my journey," singer/songwriter Jess Jocoy says of her refined yet rootsy debut album, Such a Long Way. While its songs don't always tell her story, they certainly show her progress. From the big picture pep talk that is "Existential Crossroads" to the father-son stand-off of "Castles Made of Sand" through the tender reminder of "Hope," Such a Long Way showcases a thoroughly literate young songwriter finding her voice and staking her claim with equal parts grit, grace, and gravitas.
Having grown up south of Seattle, hitting every karaoke night and singing competition her parents would drive her to, Jocoy kept her eye ever on the prize: Nashville. "I'd had this dream that I was going to move to Nashville and be a country singer like Miranda Lambert or Faith Hill, and get a record deal, and sell out stadiums," she says. With a twang in her voice, an edge to her sound, and a fire in her belly, Jocoy might just do it.

Ben de la Cour
"Ben de la Cour's songs are brimming with urgent authenticity. There is thematic hardness and vulnerability throughout, but what distinguishes de la Cour's songs from lesser guitar-and-anguished-vocals hacks is the raw humanity of his delivery and the potency of his way with words." (No Depression)
