About Jonathan Byrd
Jonathan Byrd has been called “one of the top 50 songwriters of all time” (Rich Warren of WFMT in the Chicago Tribune) and “the most buzzed-about new songwriter in folkdom” (Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe). Anyone who knows his music will know that these are hardly over the top descriptions for a songwriter who has also been described as having “John Prine’s gift for stark little songs that tell big, complex stories, Guy Clark’s lean melodicism, Lyle Lovett’s wry mischief, and Bill Morrissey’s knack for the revealing image.” That he puts on one of the best live shows on the folk scene is a given. Jonathan’s latest album is “You Can’t Outrun The Radio”. For more information visit

About Eliot Bronson
The Atlanta Music Guide describes Eliot Bronson as “the type of songwriter who could squeeze out something meaningful about taking out the trash. He writes heartfelt songs with dark humor and backs them with his resonant voice and swampy instruments.” Eliot Bronson’s latest self-titled album, tracked entirely in analog by acclaimed Nashville producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Rival Sons, Jason Isbell, Nikki Lane) is already creating quite a buzz on the folk scene.
