Josh Ward is a pure country music artist with ten consecutive #1 hit singles in Texas. His new album "More Than I Deserve" is full bodied and emotionally fragrant, every song jumps out kicking up the kind of country music nostalgia Ward is revered for. He has over 2 million views on YouTube and over 3 million streams on Spotify.
He is only 25 years old, but his guitar style is descendant from the 70’s classic rock age with notes that writhe like exposed nerves. His new album "Waves" on 7013 Records is pure nostalgia from an era of music when songs allowed more space to breathe and float comfortably in a vortex of sound. His live show approach is a lost art, an audiovisual alchemy that brings the crowd directly into his world.
The Robbie Walden Band's new album "When The Rooster Crows" on Floating Records is their third full length album release. The recipe of this 5-piece band is four parts Washington and one part Idaho, lives cultivated in the big sky country under the constant influence of the working man. Hailed as "one honest piece of hope that real country music is still alive in these days to come," their story driven and harmonic soaked sound is the absolute definition of Americana.
Ft. Worth singer/songwriter Dan Johnson’s “Hemingway Project” is a unique EP/audiobook project that paints a haunting picture of mental
health struggles and suicide among military veterans. The release of the project on State Fair Records is Johnson’s personal testament of a troubled life, molded by the devastating mental
collapse and eventual suicide of his father all told through compelling narrative. “Hemingway” stands as a message of how generations can be impacted by this kind of loss, and
how people can intercede on behalf of those who aren’t reaching out on behalf of themselves. With its five brilliantly crafted songs and five companion short stories, Johnson hopes not only to
educate the public on the specific and common warning signs of suicide, but also the variety of resources available in their own communities across America. National Geographic Magazine
will feature the “Hemingway Project” in the fall on 2018.
