Verlon Thompson

Songwriters seem to flourish on the fertile Oklahoma plains. Woody Guthrie, Roger Miller, Leon Russell, J.J. Cale and Jimmy Webb.
Add Verlon Thompson to that list.
Thirty years as a professional songwriter and traveling troubadour serve as credentials. As a solo performer, and as the trusted sidekick of Texas Americana songwriting icon Guy Clark, Verlon has viewed the world from stages everywhere from Barcelona to Binger (his hometown in Oklahoma).
Along the way Verlon Thompson compositions have been recorded by Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Anne Murray, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Del McCoury, Sam Bush, Trisha Yearwood and many more.
Equally important in his songwriting and live performances, Verlon's guitar work cannot go unnoticed. His guitar can be heard on recordings by Restless Heart, Pam Tillis, and many more, including, and especially Guy Clark.
Verlon has co-produced Guy Clark's Grammy nominated cd "Cold Dog Soup" as well as "The Dark", "Workbench Songs" and "Somedays the Song Writes You".

Market Junction

Market Junction. Not a place as the name implies but rather the name of a band that has engaged fans with their songs of love and loss since 2012 when they released their freshman effort, Heroes Have Gravestones.The last couple of years, the founding members Matt Parrish, Justin Lofton and Taylor Hilyard have been honing their craft of songwriting and stirring up a buzz on the scene.

Xaris Waltman

Xaris Waltman picked up a guitar for the first time; at the young age of eight. Her poems and short stories she was writing at that point then turned into songs, not long after learning those few chords. Waltman has been referred to as an old soul because her love for folk music and keeping traditional ballads alive, began in only junior high. The romance began with a "Peter, Paul, and Mary" album. Not long afterwards Xaris began looking up to many folk groups from the folk-revolution in NYC during the 1960s, as well as traditional American folk ballads of the 19th century. 

Touring, Xaris mostly performs solo. Just a young girl and her guitar playing a mix of old folk songs and original tunes. People have compared her voice to the likes of Allison Krauss, EmmyLou Harris, Abigail Washburn, and Joni Mitchell. Adam Levine compared Xaris to Dolly Parton during her time on NBC's "The Voice" Season 13 in 2017. Since "The Voice" Xaris has spent time traveling and touring the country solo; playing festivals and small venues, clubs and radio stations, listening rooms and house shows. Traveling and creating music is Xaris's biggest dream next to keeping American folk traditions alive. She hopes to share love through music with everyone she meets. She is currently recording an album with Big Tone Records out of Bristol, Virginia that is set to be released in the summer of 2019.

Jeff Black

Black's songs have earned GRAMMY recognition, radio chart-topping stats and numerous BMI awards. Although flying below the radar as a performer himself, he has been recognized by NPR as a musical pioneer in the digital age and his catalogue of critically acclaimed albums continues to grow. Composing music for film and television, his credits include numerous indie-film soundtracks and a repertoire of songs cut by artists as diverse as Alison Krauss & Union Station, Waylon Jennings, BlackHawk, Dierks Bentley, Jon Randall, John Oates, Jerry Douglas and Sam Bush. Black has forged a reputation as a true folk troubadour entertaining audiences globally for over three decades. A master songwriter and performer in the tradition of the great storytellers, his passionate, soul driven live performances of songs from his vast catalog are not to be missed.

Curtis McMurtry

Curtis McMurtry writes about villains that believe they are victims. Influenced by Fiona Apple, Billy Strayhorn and Leonard Cohen, Curtis' music combines sardonic lyrics with crooked, unconventional arrangements. His first solo album Respectable Enemy was released in August 2014, and drew comparisons to Calexico and John Fullbright. His sophomore album The Hornet's Nest was released in February 2017, and continues to garner critical acclaim. Curtis' music has been featured on NPR's Weekend Edition, and his song "Wrong Inflection" was included in the soundtrack for comedian Tig Notaro's Amazon Prime series One Mississippi.
