The best songwriters can take you to a specific place and specific time – even if you've never been. It's exactly what happens when you listen to Zach Schmidt's music. The Pittsburgh native has emerged on the Nashville folk music scene with his newly released EP, Horse or Truck or Train, demonstrating undeniable talent as a fresh singer-songwriter.

Inspired by a bike ride across the continental U.S. Horse or Truck or Train is a winding journey, rich with imagery reminiscent of seasoned greats like Guy Clark and John Prine.

Zach's music has a profound ability to pay homage to the longstanding tradition of folk music while breathing new-life into American sound.

His songs are as classic as his sound – drawing you in with a timeless quality – spinning a story you could swear was your own.

It has been said that art imitates life. Elli Perry's forthcoming album, Little Thieves, makes a strong case for that theory, showcasing a voice that's as unique as the life its maker has lead. Born and raised in Georgia, Perry began her musical career as a tenacious twelve year old performing on barroom stages around the Southeast. Throughout her adolescence and adulthood, music and movement served as the driving forces that defined her story. She migrated across the country from New York to New Orleans, New Mexico, and Texas, all while touring relentlessly from coast to coast. In 2014, she found herself creatively spent from life on the road, exhausted from a years' long battle with depression, and reeling from a painful divorce. She stepped away from the stage in order to recover, this time crossing oceans instead of states in her search for inspiration and a place to call home. First in a stone cottage in the French countryside, and later in a wallless house in the coastal jungles of Costa Rica, Perry wrote the bulk of the songs that would become Little Thieves. The album, tracked to tape in nine days with producers Adam Landry and Justin Collins (Rayland Baxter, Vanessa Carlton, Deer Tick), is an arresting paean to the loves and lives she has known around the globe. But above all, it is reflection of a woman and an artist carving her own unusual path forward, regardless of where it may ultimately lead.
