Blueburst are a new group but they’re certainly not new artists. Comprising founder Craig Douglas Miller and guitarist Marty Willson-Piper, the group brings with it a long history in the music industry. New album, ‘Vanish’, comes after a 20 year musical hiatus for Miller, who found in Willson-Piper a trusted mentor and collaborator – who’s also a dab hand at production.

Walker County is a sister duo from Sulphur Springs IN, a town of 390 people. Ivey Dene and Sophie Dawn would take frequent trips to Nashville from Sulphur Springs very early on, busking on lower Broadway. In fact, the first time the sister duo busked on Broadway Ivey was 12 and Sophie was 9 years old. Bitten by the performance bug the sisters started playing fairs and festivals until about 7 years ago, this duo made the move to Nashville permanently to pursue their passion for music full time.
