Damon Atkins is a guitarist/singer/songwriter from Level Cross, NC by way of Nashville, TN.With prominent influences rooted in southern rock and blues, such as the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Atkins shows a variety of ability on guitar from acoustic finger style to howlin’ slide guitar.
23-year-old Illinois native, Rylie Bourne, released her debut album (featuring 8 original songs) in December of 2015. The revered Nashville session musician, Guthrie Trapp, produced the album. Bourne has spent the last year and a half honing in on her craft, playing shows from dive bars to CMAfest. Her wide ranges of influences are shown in her songs, but she is known for a certain sound: «She's got that sultry, bluesy, organic thing that can only be described as swampy.»Surrounded by music through the club/bar scene at age 15 developed Atkins into a self-sufficient sideman early on. Honing his craft as a guitarist with his own band and other local acts, Atkins decided he too had something to say through music and decided to write and compose his own songs.
