Bronwynne Brent

Bronwynne Brent is a Mississippi-native songwriter. Her 2014 release, Stardust, saw her twice voted Female Performer of the Year by Americana UK, resulting in radio appearances on the BBC.

For her latest album, Undercover, the Greenville, Mississippi, native set up shop at Brooklyn’s legendary Daptone Studios. With producer Johnny Sangster, Brent concocted a deep Southern roux, a complex and flavorful brew of truth-imbued Americana.

“Brent’s simmering blue-flame delivery draws equally on jazz, blues, torch song and old-school C&W, as does her songwriting.” – New York Music Daily

Kenny Roby

Kenny Roby is a North Carolina-native singer-songwriter. He’s the former lead singer of 6 String Drag, an early 1990s ensemble that influenced what came to be called Americana music.

His latest album is the self-titled Kenny Roby. Reflecting Roby’s recent move to the Catskill Mountains near Woodstock, NY, the album features guest appearances by Amy Helm and John Sebastian.

His previous albums include The Reservoir and Tired of Feeling Guilty (25 Years of 6 String Drag).
