Hush_Money_220713bn26s.jpg

Hush Money Bio

Emerging from the foothills of the southern Appalachians, Hush Money is a diverse modern alternative southern rock band with a contemporary sound that is deeply rooted in vintage rock, blues, outlaw country, punk, and metal.

The diversity of this eclectic group comes from the widespread back grounds of each of its founding members. Lead by brothers Greg (drums) and Seth Weaver (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), they provide a solid foundation for the band which they developed through many years of playing a mix of outlaw country and classic rock in many smoke filled bar rooms all across the south.

Tommy_Townsend_2206067xz5w.jpg

 

Country music is at its best when it honors the past while blazing a trail toward the future. Few artists can bridge the genre’s most beloved traditions while carving a path of their own, but Tommy Townsend successfully inhabits that unique space.
   The Georgia native actually began recording his “new” album Southern Man more than 25 years ago working with Country Music Hall of Famer Waylon Jennings and his legendary bassist Jerry Bridges. Townsend met Jennings when he was just a kid and never dreamed his idol would one day become his mentor.

   “Hell’s Angels used to do security for Waylon,” Townsend says, recalling the Georgia concert where he met Jennings. “My mom and dad were telling one of the guys that I liked Waylon and he said, ‘Bring Tommy down here to the gate after the show and we’ll let him meet him.’ I remember going on the bus and talking to him for 20-30 minutes. He was asking me questions about playing music and he was as nice as he could be, made me feel right at home.”

Mike Killeen Bio

Originally from Athens, Georgia and now calling nearby Decatur home, Mike Killeen has released five full-length albums and an EP—and shared the stage with alt-country luminary Jay Farrar, Grammy Award winners The Blind Boys of Alabama, and southern rock legends the Marshall Tucker Band. He counts Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Vic Chesnutt, and Uncle Tupelo among his formative influences.

Killeen’s recent release include the EPs, “6.17.20” and “1.9.21,” as well as the single, “It’s Time For California To Come Home.”

Killeen’s most recent full-length album, “Ghost,” was produced by Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) at his Cartoon Moon Studios in Nashville and released in 2019 on Saturn 5 Records to worldwide distribution. “Ghost” features Killeen’s strongest set of songs to-date, and his collaboration with Coomer builds on his Americana roots, with a collection of tracks that straddles the lines between genres, including folk rock, pop rock, indie rock, and alternative rock. Killeen penned and contributed lead vocals for all nine songs, and played electric and acoustic guitars, harmonica, and piano. Coomer said of Killeen: “Mike Killeen can take you to that place, the place of a lost love, that yearning we all have for someone, or he can paint the picture of human loss, that deep line that runs between life and death.”

Brian_Wiltsey_220412bbejv.jpeg

Bio

Brian Wiltsey is a songwriter and producer from Atlanta, GA.  Known for his strong voice and knack for writing catchy lyrics and melodies, Brian’s style can be described as sensitive artist to straight-up pop rocker.  Whether performing solo or with his talented backing band, Brian Wiltsey never disappoints. 

 Music has meant so much to Wiltsey from the first time he heard a Beatles record as a little boy.  “I can remember trying to always figure out if it was John or Paul singing lead before I even knew that the band had broken up 10 years before I was born!”  

 Spending most of his life as a performing artist, as a front man of a popular touring band in the 90s within the college music scene, to going solo in 2001 and 6 albums under his belt , Brian decided in 2016 to make the transition to writing in his studio for tv/film/ad licensing, while still performing as a live musician at nights.

Lo Lo Bio

“I’m not scared of or for anything I create. I made it. I know the ins & outs. And if I made it to succeed then that’s what’ll do in it’s own right and time”

“Taurus”, his debut album, is slated to be released May 6th, just 4 days past his birthday of May 2nd.

“I want the people who understand the zodiac or use it sometimes as ways to “figure me out” to understand that the Taureans are more than just stubborn or the other stereotypes we hear constantly. We are complex. We are empaths. We are the heart of the zodiac and I hope that by bearing some of my feelings that I can show listeners that Taureans are all of these things and more.”

Daniel Pratt Bio

Created with a passion to play the music that makes people feel, Daniel Pratt is a songwriter, singer, speaker, worship leader, and entrepreneur. 

 Daniel first began discovering his love for music at the tender age of 12 when he was given a guitar on Christmas morning. He entered the music scene leading worship at a former youth conference, Acquire The Fire, and from there became the worship leader at his local church for seven years. Since then, he’s been using his personal experiences of God, love, and the journey of life, to inspire his dream to keep pursuing the music that makes him come alive. 

 Daniel began a worship movement called @thepourworship that meets once a month in his community. He also owns a coffee business he launched during the beginning of the pandemic, Panama City Coffee Co. that provides Panamanian coffee to locals via his coffee bike. Daniel’s coffee business was a way for him to give back to his city which lost so much during devastating Hurricane Michael that hit the area hard in 2018. 

 Daniel has always stayed busy chasing after all of his passions, but his true purpose is realized when he’s singing songs captivating the listener through convicting lyrics and catchy melodies. His songs invite listeners on a journey of discovering the complexities of the heart, mind, and soul. 

 Daniel lives in Panama City Beach with his wife Jenn and their three children, Jace, Livi, and Ellie. Daniel and his wife are joyfully expecting another baby in June 2022.

Tom Guerra Bio

Since the late 1970s, Tom Guerra has been a popular guitarist on the New England club circuit, playing with a host of leading blues, rock n' roll and R&B acts. Influenced by Rory Gallagher, Paul Kossoff, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, and Joe Walsh, Guerra first gained notoriety after being featured in Guitar Player magazine (3/91). Over the years, Guerra has recorded or played with Rick Derringer, The Dirty Bones Blues Band', Max Weinberg, Mark Nomad, Sticky Fingers (for which Tom wrote and arranged original music for the group's debut cd), The Easton Brothers with Muddy Waters bassist Charles Calmese, Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson from The Allman Brothers Band, Second Son, Guitar Shorty, Adolph Jacobs of The Coasters, Kenny Aaronson, and The Delrays, for which he received acclaim from Buddy Guy.

In 1999, he formed Mambo Sons with singer Scott Lawson, based upon a songwriting partnership that dated back to the early 1980s. Their debut album, released in 1999, featured guitar legend Rick Derringer. This twelve-song effort contained both new music as well as songs the two had originally written a decade before, and yet was immediately met with very positive reviews.

Born Healer Bio

Born Healer have been bringing their soulful, heavy, groovy blues-rock to enthusiastic audiences since 2015. Now with a rebooted mojo, they're moving up to festival main stages in 2020. And with well-received support slots recently for Aynsley Lister, Skinny Molly, Focus and more, Born Healer are hitting their stride.

Helen Turner, on vocals, from Glasgow, Scotland, is "the real deal" according to Classic Rock magazine, "brilliant" and "in a different class" according to Classic Rock: The Blues, and simply "wonderful" according to Blues Matters. Beautiful vocals on record and even better live.

Iain Black, on guitar, has been Helen's musical partner for several years, including in the Bare Bones Boogie Band, whose third album, Tattered & Torn, was one of Classic Rock Blues magazine's top albums of 2013, and whose gigs were attended by Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant.

Marek Funkas, on bass, hooked up with Helen and Iain to form Born Healer in 2015. Originally from Poland, Marek has lived in London for 20 years and plays most of his music in the UK. Marek also plays with his own band, Laba, and regularly deps for major international touring artists including live performances at London's Scala and Wembley Arena.

Steve Weaver, on drums, joined Born Healer in January 2019 and brings a wealth of live performance experience from tours with original bands, tribute shows, function and cover bands. Steve fitted in super quickly to the Born Healer family and brings real spark and energy to live performances. He even fronts his own AC/DC tribute band!

Andy Jones played drums in Born Healer from the start until 2019. Andy was also in the Bare Bones Boogie Band with Helen and Iain. We wish Andy all the best
