The Teskey Brothers
With its raw combination of soul and blues, The Teskey Brothers' debut album Half Mile Harvest dropped in 2018 and has quickly gained the attention of old-school music fans everywhere. Signed to prestigious indie label Glassnote Records, The Teskey Brothers are brothers Sam and Josh Teskey along with childhood friends Brendon Love and Liam Gough. Together they have amassed a legion of fans in their homeland of Australia and the word is spreading fast around the globe. Live highlights to date include Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, Bluesfest in Australia and World Fest in California, as well as sold out shows across USA, UK, Europe, Japan and Australia.

Onstage The Teskey Brothers are as tight as any in the game. Josh Teskey's smoked whiskey vocals are captivating, while his brother Sam effortlessly throws down the tastiest of blues licks over Brendon and Liam's irresistible stripped-back groove. Audiences are awash with nostalgia and love for this new favorite with a Motown sound.

Don't miss the rare musical gem that is The Teskey Brothers when their incredible six-piece lineup tours through North America this Summer.

Katie Pruitt is the girl next door with a guitar in her lap writing songs in her bedroom until sunrise. Pruitt is a has-to-live-it-to-write-it kind of songwriter that achieves the kind of lyrical simplicity that even the best songwriters strive for. Her unique guitar picking accompanied by her very personal lyrics and truth-questioning spirit is a throwback to the classical sounds of Joni Mitchell, John Prine, and Brandi Carlile.

Pruitt is a Nashville transplant, originally hailing from a small suburb outside of Athens, Georgia. Splitting her time between writing songs and waiting tables, her hard work paid off after she landed a Tuesday night residency at The Basement in Nashville. One of those nights in 2016, she was heard by the right people and signed a publishing deal with Round Hill Music Publishing. Not long after that she was offered a booking deal with Paradigm Talent Agency and hasn’t had time to wait tables since.

Pruitt has been praised as one of the most talented songwriters and best kept secret in Nashville today. In 2016 she humbly accepted the first annual BMI Songwriting Scholarship for her original song, “Ordinary.” This recognition then lead her to be the honored recipient of the Buddy Holly Prize in 2017, a prize previously awarded to the talents of Emily King and Ben Howard through the Songwriter Hall of Fame. Pruitt also made her way on the bill for the 2017 Pilgrimage festival alongside headliners, Justin Timberlake and Eddie Vedder.

2018 has no plans for slowing Pruitt down. The successful release of her OurVinyl live session on YouTube has reached over 50K people in a short few months. Catch her playing Americana Festival in Nashville this September as well as on the road playing a show in your city.
