Stevie Ray Vaughan’s cover of Carter’s “Crossfire” earned Carter a BMI “Million Air” award for more than three million spins. Bill has an audacious knack for a roadhouse hook and a wicked tongue for lyrics, making music that is at once powerful, sly, intelligent and rocking. http://www.billcarterandtheblame.com/
Singer-songwriter Bob Livingston has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life even though he's spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful and rambunctious musicians in Texas. As a member of Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band, Livingston toured and recorded with such musical visionaries as Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey, Ray Wylie Hubbard and many more.

Emily Scott Robinson
Emily Scott Robinson has traveled a quarter million miles and counting, paying her dues along the dusty highways of America’s wild country in the RV she calls home. Along the way, she’s captured the stories of the people she met and expertly crafted them into the songs featured on her gorgeous debut studio release, “Traveling Mercies.” A meditation on human frailty and the power of resiliency, Robinson is at times vulnerable, at others, defiant and absolutely free. Her snapshots portray real people who live and love and struggle to keep their balance atop a world that spins endlessly beneath their feet. “Traveling Mercies” is a tour de force from a traveler, a survivor, an elegant chronicler of her own existence and those of her fellow wanderers. https://www.emilyscottrobinson.com/

Gary Nicholson is a musical Renaissance man.

A consistent presence on the upper reaches of the country chart hit parade for the last three decades, his associations and collaborations read like an honor roll of notable talent in country and beyond: George Strait, Ringo Starr, Garth Brooks, Jeff Bridges, Robert Plant, B.B. King, Fleetwood Mac, Gregg Allman, The Judds, Buddy Guy, Neil Diamond, Patty Griffin, Bonnie Raitt, Del McCoury, The Neville Brothers, Vince Gill, Delbert McClinton, Etta James, John Prine, Keb’ Mo’ and Toby Keith are just some of the many artists who number among the more than 500 recordings of songs written or co-written by Nicholson.

A protégé of Bo Diddley, Loomis’ energetic, get-in-with–the-crowd antics are infectious.

House of Hamill
Musical couple Rose Baldino and Brian Buchannan each have a traditional fiddling background and had bands of their own before forming House of Hamill. For Buchannan, it was Canadian Celtic rock group Enter the Haggis, which continues to tour today, while Baldino fronted Burning Bridget Cleary, a traditional Irich quartet. House of Hamill channels the diverse background and wealth of talented skills of both musicians involved within this project. They achieve a truly interesting blend of folk, which is rather separated from the pair’s other projects and bands, but yet it still retains that common denominator: passion, heart and feeling behind everything they do. https://www.houseofhamill.com/
