Hailing from Nashville, but nothing like your typical Nashville songwriter, Christopher Williams is a songwriter, storyteller, and entertainer – offering songs that are honest and confessional, yet never overbearing; and performances that engage audiences with an appealing mix of intense passion and humor. With “lush guitar work, and sweet soaring vocals,” (Boston Phoenix) punctuated by the percussive vulnerability of a single African djembe hand drum and that strong baritone voice, Williams continues to be a “hard-touring singer-songwriter and a master at spreading his personal energy out into a live audience.”
Birch & Brine: A high-energy blitzkrieg of harmonies and steel-string solos, happening somewhere in the woods or on a beach. Ethan Norman and Adam Whipple are two Knoxville songwriters combining folk rock and alt-country backgrounds with barefoot wanderlust and back-country sensibilities.
Eden Wilhelm is a songstress and multi-instrumentalist whose work finds a home at the place where stories and truth meet. With intensely personal lyricism and a voice beyond her years, her music explores themes of loss, folklore, and resilience in the face of difficulty.
