    About The Artists:

    Hayes Carll is a singer and songwriter with a rock & roll heart and a country soul has won a devoted following in roots rock and Americana circles for music that honors the traditions of vintage country but with the swagger and swing of rock. His much anticipated album, What It Is, was released in February, and the result is a musically ambitious and lyrically deep statement of an artist in his creative prime. Kelly Willis and Kenny Chesney have chosen to record his songs and his television appearances include The Tonight Show, Austin City Limits, and Later w/Jools Holland. Carll is the rare artist who can rock a packed dancehall one night and hold a listening room at rapt attention the next. Rolling Stone Magazine lists Hayes’ song Times Like These as one of the ten best country and Americana songs to listen to now.

    St. Paul and The Broken Bones is a widely praised soul-based rock unit based in Birmingham, AL. Since their debut album in 2014, the band has toured all over the world becoming a fan favorite with a reputation for must-see live performances. TV appearances include The late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, Austin City Limits and two appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. And with his band’s new album, Young Sick Camellia, Janeway has created a space for St. Paul & The Broken Bones to rival any forward-thinking band making music today, based on a concept all-too familiar to him: family, and how we love them despite our differences.
