Award-winning guitarist with a gift for insightful songwriting, Molly Tuttle evolves her signature sound with boundary-breaking songs on her compelling debut album, When You're Ready. Tuttle has garnered the respect of her peers, winning fans for her incredible flat-picking guitar technique and confessional songwriting. In the past year, Molly has won the Folk Alliance International's honour for Song of the Year for 'You Didn't Call My Name' and took home her second trophy for the International Bluegrass Music Association's Guitar Player of the Year (the first woman in the history of the IBMA to win that honour).
Dee White makes classic-minded country music for the modern world. Raised in small-town Alabama, he's a raw, natural songwriter, spinning the sounds and stories of the American South into songs that nod to the past while still chasing down new horizons. His songs are classics-in-the-making, inspired by traditional sounds but happily rooted in the 21st century. This isn't a throwback act. Instead, it's a contemporary, ageless take on country music—one that packs just as strong a punch today as it would've 50 years ago.
