 Brent Burns was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. While attending high school and Community college sports were important, but music was in his blood. Brent soon strapped on an electric guitar and was fronting a rock-n-roll band.

Life soon changed when he volunteered for service in Vietnam. Several months after entering combat, Brent was wounded and received the Purple Heart. After a three year recuperation in and out of military hospitals, he returned to his love of music and hit the road performing all over the United States. Later on he felt compelled to take a year off from music and hit the college lecture circuit. Offering honest, insightful, and a humorous look at life as a combat soldier, Brent was able to help others troubled with the effect of the war on their day to day lives.

Brent Burns is no stranger to notoriety.  In response to the oil shortages of the 1980s, Burns wrote the hit song, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food,” which sold 200,000 copies the first day it was released.   Paul Harvey played the song three times; the first and only song ever played in the program’s 35-year history.  Burns’ fame has continued with guest appearances on all three major networks, interviews on the BBC, and featured articles in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune andBillboard Magazine.

Brent also has the distinction of being the first entertainer to sing for American troops overseas since the tragedy of September 11th, 2001.  Besides his busy performance schedule, he continues to perform at benefits around the world, including for the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA) of Australia, the Phoenix Suns Night Hoops Program, American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity, where Brent is building a house with proceeds from his latest CD, “Margarita Smile.”

Ronnie’s BIO
I was once called "The delta's rockin' country boy" by one of my roadie buddies at The
Osceola Arkansas Heritage Music Festival which I performed at for many years and it sort of stuck on me for a long time.
LINK TO: https://www.facebook.com/osceolaheritagemusicfest?fref=ts

Opening for national recording artist such as Night Ranger, Anthony Gomes, Buddy Jewel, TG Sheppard, Tracy Lawrence and
Doctor Zarr's Amazing Funk Monster have been just a few of my high points throughout my 40 years of performing.
I moved to Gulf Shores in June 2014 and started my new musical journey here. GooRoo’s American/Seafood Restaurant in Gulf Shores, AL. gave me my first gig and it was a huge success!
Being a singer/songwriter as well as a solo entertainer has opened a few doors. I am very excited about being involved in the Gulf Coast songwriting community that will showcase my writing and performing talents for the new fans and friends I have made on the Gulf Coast. Me and my wife Dana plan on living out the rest of our years here in Alabama and we aren't going no where. We love this place, the folks, the music scene and all of the cool festivals and events it has to offer, not only in and around Gulf Shores, AL. but the Perdido Key and Pensacola areas as well.

Steadily gaining shows and fans is very exciting to me now that I am a solo entertainer. Retired from floorcovering installations in December of 2013 gave me the opportunity to become fulltime at my music.
I have spent the last 15 years playing in bands as the front man and guitarist for many groups around Memphis, TN. All over N.E. Arkansas and around Olive Branch and Southaven Mississippi. Back in the 70’s & 80’s I played in Texas, Oklahoma and parts of Missouri. Sure feels great to do my brand of music and show these days but I would not take away any of my past because it is a big part of who I am and it helped to mold me into the musician I am today.

Musical and vocal influences range from John Fogerty, Paul Rodgers, Vince Gill, Randy Owen, Ry Cooder, Keith Urban any many more.
A Epiphone EJ200 acoustic/electric guitar is my instrument of choice and the faithful Shure SM58 vocal microphone" for vocals. I carry a small Pa System setup for my personal shows that is just the right size for most venues, indoors or outdoors.

People ask me if I am related to the King of Rockin’ Roll “Elvis”. Well, I am but it’s very far down the line related, 7th cousin in our family tree. But I am very proud to carry the name and I love knowing I am the only musician out of 7 kids in my family. Must have had that part handed down to me somehow…LOL.
At the tender age of sixteen i started my musical journey into the nightlife’s music scene and that’s how this all began. There is definitely much more to tell but I’d rather you check out my music, photos and show schedule.
My Cd/Album can be purchased at the links below. Also there are links to my Facebook Artist Page and Reverbnation as well.
I support and perform at every local cancer benefit show possible that my schedule can allow as well as other charity events.

Lee has been playing as a solo act and with his live band Lee & The Hellz Yeah in the Gulf Coast area since 2004. At the moment Lee is working on a new solo record The Leavin Sound. The solo album is influenced by his acoustic solo work and creates a down home feel with plenty of his signature slide guitar work. This album has tinges of everything from blues rock to downhome gospel, r&b and what some might call soulful country.

When Sugarcane Jane makes music, heads bob, feet tap, smiles spread, and hearts beat just a little faster.  Truly, the musical sugar the band produces is indeed so fine.  The alchemy of Alabama’s own Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee Crawford yields mystically sweet, organic harmonies which are both accessible and familiar, while at the same time intuitive and distinctly their own.  Whether singing original works (like Louisiana, Butterfly, and Sugar) or putting their down home sound on familiar classics (ranging from an incredibly playful and fun Hot Rod Lincoln to a spontaneous rendition of Roger Miller’s Dang Me or a dreamily mellow and psychedelic Midnight Rider), Sugarcane Jane’s appeal cuts across generations and appeals to a wide audience.  If it’s your first time to hear Sugarcane Jane, you’ll find yourself saying, “Wow, who are these guys? They’re good.” If you are familiar with their work, you’ll overhear such comments and smile knowingly as you remember the exact time and place you first stumbled onto the band.

Edward David Anderson is an artist as ancient as he is modern. In a time when the music business desperately flails about, grasping at any new trend that will save its sinking ship, he exists far outside its confines. Best known for his work with the revered Midwestern rock band Backyard Tire Fire who released a string of acclaimed albums in the previous decade, Anderson returns to the national stage with his highly anticipated solo debut, Lies & Wishes. Produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, it finds Anderson creating his own mythology through a collection of songs that embrace vulnerability, while remaining grounded in his working class roots. Anderson sings, “I’m the son of a plumber, from a God fearing mother.” The lyric says much about where his story begins as an artist. He was born and raised just west of Chicago and lives a simple life, spending winters in an RV alongside the Gulf of Mexico in lower Alabama. Anderson’s an American songwriter on an existential quest who seeks and who searches through song.

“I feel like every experience, every mile, every interaction, every tune, sort of got me to where I am at this moment,” Anderson recounts while shedding light on the over-arching theme that ties together the 10-track collection. “The songs on the record are confessional by nature. They are songs about loss and love and living and hope. Halfway through my life, it’s an honest look in the mirror.”

Anderson’s journey over the last five years and his response to the challenges he faced is what sets the lifers apart from those that concede the artistic pursuit. The dissolution of Backyard Tire in 2011 was the first obstacle to overcome. The band had built a devout cult following around the U.S., counting Cracker, Reverend Horton Heat and Clutch among their fans, all of whom took BTF on the road exposing them to a wider audience. It was around this time that Steve Berlin of Los Lobos was first drawn to Anderson’s songwriting.

“Backyard Tire Fire opened a show for us and I remember being backstage and listening to their music and I was like, ‘Wow, that song sounds really familiar. Whose cover is that? It’s a classic tune,’” says Berlin. “It turns out that they were all Ed’s originals. They just had that instantly memorable quality to them. So, I introduced myself at the show and we became buddies and then collaborators. Ed’s music is so evocative, so well written. I honestly think he is as talented as anyone in the songwriting world and it is important that he be heard.”

Anderson adds: “I was just starting to get back on the road again after Tire Fire split, touring with my friend Johnny Hickman and I got inspired to get back in the studio. I had these songs and had something pretty interesting to say based on the experiences I just went through. I knew if I could get Steve Berlin involved, who is an old friend that I’ve worked with in the past, it could be something special.”

It was shortly before this that Anderson’s mother passed away, while the previous winter his wife lost her mother, both to extended illnesses. These were defining moments for the 40-year old artist and culminated in a torrent of songwriting. Indeed, songs like “Lies & Wishes” “Lost & Found” and “Chain Reaction” delve deep into the human condition, asking difficult questions of both himself and his loved ones.

“A lot of the subject matter on this record came from reflecting on these painful experiences” says Anderson. “After losing my mom, I decided I’ve got to make a record and dedicate it to her and make a statement here on my own.”

Musically speaking, the core of Lies & Wishes is built around refined melodies, acoustic guitars and sparse arrangements, yet Berlin’s production colors the tracks with squalls of electric guitar, affected vocals, drum loops and assorted analog keyboard flourishes. It should also be noted that fans of Anderson’s vintage rock and roll songwriting from his Backyard Tire Fire days will find plenty to love on tunes like “Nothing Lasts Forever,” “Taking It Out On You” and “The Next Melody,” which deliver the big hooks and classic refrains on which he so effortlessly hangs his hat.

This is where we find Edward David Anderson today. His heart’s on his sleeve and it’s that of an artist. Nobody ever said it was going to be easy, but as the songs on Lies & Wishes bare out, when the muse calls, he will be there to answer.

“I needed to make this album,” he concludes. “I feel like it’s undoubtedly my finest work to date, the beginning of the next chapter for me.”

 Drew Blackwell is from the Mississippi town of Macon. His mother is a gifted pianist and he and his sisters all have a ear for music and can sing!! He started learning his way around the guitar at the young age of fourteen, influenced by his Uncle Doug, and mentored and inspired to write and feel the blues by the great Willie King. 

King was a blues man born in Praire Point, MS. Drew along with his good friend and fellow artist Caleb Childs began The Old Memphis Kings in 2004. They have since continued to share the soul behind the blues king that brought them together.
 
Courtney grew up in Wa state and comes from a musically gifted family, at the age of three she was taught and began taking lessons in classical cello by Dr Wharton, a cello/bass professor at the University of Idaho. She would say her mother was most influential in her progressing in technic, tone and ear training. Practicing with her every day. 
In the past 4 years, since moving to the south. she has really focused on changing the way the cello is used in ensembles , now she prefers folk, blues, and bluegrass styles and has really refined her playing to allow herself to sing while performing.
 
They met at the Dave's Darkhorse Tavern in Starkville, MS. Drew's blues band played there quite often and Courtney played cello with a few different groups that played at the establishment. They quickly began dating and soon began playing together billing themselves as Honeyboy and Boots. Honeyboy is a nickname Drew received while singing the blues with the Old Memphis Kings and Boots is a nickname Courtney has had since she was young because she is always wearing them. Now married, they still make there home in Starkville.
 
Together they have a unique style that is all their own. This husband/wife, guitar/cello duo plays a blend of old blues and folk covers, country ballads, and originals that are straight from the heart. Americana, folk, alt country, blues, all these words describe their sound, which is always changing and growing.
 
They have been hired for weddings and receptions, play regularly in Starkville, Columbus, Jackson, and Birmingham, and recently in the past few months have played at the first annual Porchfest in Franklin Tn, Cumberland Country Music Festival in Cookville Tn, the Blue Plate Special in Knoxville Tn, and a New Year's Eve bash in Nashville! They are excited for many more opportunities this year. They enjoy the travel and adventure of a touring married duo!

Albert Simpson and Highly Kind “Burly and jovial with a bushy beard that dangles a pigtail, Albert Simpson looks the part of both yesterday and today, and that perfectly captures the spirit of his music. Simpson writes, sings, and plays guitar for Highly Kind, a young Gadsden, Alabama band whose members wear southern rock badges with honor, but who also inject the old genre with newfound vitality.” --Tom Clarke, Elmore Magazine. Self taught, but inspired by his father, Simpson began playing the guitar at age 12. Influenced by bands like Little Feat, the Grateful Dead, and the Allman Brothers Band, Albert joined his first band at age 15. After touring the colleges and couches of the southern music scene, Highly Kind emerged as Simpsons sole project around 1995. The faces of the band have changed throughout the years but the music has remained true to its roots. Focusing mainly on the band, Simpson also performs solo where he utilizes percussion instruments like the tambourine and a porch board along with the acoustic guitar. Johnny Sandlin, who produced great acts like The Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic, brought his expertise to “Dont Wake Albert”, the bands first studio CD which was released by Rockin Camel Music. The CD has received raving reviews in publications such as: Vintage Guitar Magazine, Relix, and Hittin the Note. It has even been said that it ranks as one of Johnnys best projects, and parallels his work on Widespread Panics landmark second album. Simpsons natural southern voice makes you believe he is talking directly to you, which creates a heartfelt and truly honest sound.

Steve Reeths and Sue Kittredge formed the duo Coconut Radio in 2007 after playing many years in the upper Midwest with the jam band Square One. Hearing the call of the warm southern tropics the two embraced the beach music scene that was not only Trop Rock, but included many great Americana, Bluegrass and Blues musicians as well. Drawing inspiration from their contemporaries, as well as the snow white beaches and blue skies of South Walton County, the duo creates with fiddle and guitar an acoustic music style that is an amalgam of all the things they love about their new home. Like a great gumbo or a drink served in a coconut, there is a bunch of different sounds, but they all add up to one thing: Coconut Radio.

After touring the colleges and couches of the southern music scene, Highly Kind emerged as Simpsons sole project around 1995. The faces of the band have changed throughout the years but the music has remained true to its roots. Focusing mainly on the band, Simpson also performs solo where he utilizes percussion instruments like the tambourine and a porch board along with the acoustic guitar. Johnny Sandlin, who produced great acts like The Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic, brought his expertise to “Dont Wake Albert”, the bands first studio CD which was released by Rockin Camel Music. The CD has received raving reviews in publications such as: Vintage Guitar Magazine, Relix, and Hittin the Note. It has even been said that it ranks as one of Johnnys best projects, and parallels his work on Widespread Panics landmark second album. Simpsons natural southern voice makes you believe he is talking directly to you, which creates a heartfelt and truly honest sound.

Albert Simpson and Highly Kind “Burly and jovial with a bushy beard that dangles a pigtail, Albert Simpson looks the part of both yesterday and today, and that perfectly captures the spirit of his music. Simpson writes, sings, and plays guitar for Highly Kind, a young Gadsden, Alabama band whose members wear southern rock badges with honor, but who also inject the old genre with newfound vitality.” --Tom Clarke, Elmore Magazine.

 Brent Burns was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. While attending high school and Community college sports were important, but music was in his blood. Brent soon strapped on an electric guitar and was fronting a rock-n-roll band.

Life soon changed when he volunteered for service in Vietnam. Several months after entering combat, Brent was wounded and received the Purple Heart. After a three year recuperation in and out of military hospitals, he returned to his love of music and hit the road performing all over the United States. Later on he felt compelled to take a year off from music and hit the college lecture circuit. Offering honest, insightful, and a humorous look at life as a combat soldier, Brent was able to help others troubled with the effect of the war on their day to day lives.

Brent Burns is no stranger to notoriety.  In response to the oil shortages of the 1980s, Burns wrote the hit song, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food,” which sold 200,000 copies the first day it was released.   Paul Harvey played the song three times; the first and only song ever played in the program’s 35-year history.  Burns’ fame has continued with guest appearances on all three major networks, interviews on the BBC, and featured articles in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune andBillboard Magazine.

Brent also has the distinction of being the first entertainer to sing for American troops overseas since the tragedy of September 11th, 2001.  Besides his busy performance schedule, he continues to perform at benefits around the world, including for the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA) of Australia, the Phoenix Suns Night Hoops Program, American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity, where Brent is building a house with proceeds from his latest CD, “Margarita Smile.”
