Will Hoge
Will Hoge
Singer - songwriter
Comes from Nashville, U.S.
Will Hoge was born and grew up in Franklin, Tennessee, located just south of Nashville. His sound was influenced by his musician father and uncles and the extensive record collection that his father kept.

Hoge attended Western Kentucky University to study history, planning to become a high school history teacher and basketball coach. He decided that he wanted to try his hand at rock and roll and began writing music. Will left the university after realizing he wanted to be a musician.

Will released an early EP of original music with his band Spoonful in the mid-1990s. However, the band was not picked up and eventually disbanded. Some of these early songs were recycled on later albums, and are still hits with his loyal followers.

With former The Georgia Satellites guitarist Dan Baird in tow, Hoge began touring the American south. He independently released his first CD, Live At The Exit/In, a live set recorded at the Nashville club. His original sound drew much attention and, through constant touring, he was able to release his first studio album, Carousel.

Hoge caught the attention of Atlantic Records music executives and he was signed to a record deal in early 2002. Atlantic then re-released Carousel to a wider market. His 2003 major label debut, Blackbird On A Lonely Wire was a cleaner sounding effort; however, the album was poorly promoted by Atlantic. Eventually, Hoge asked for and received a release from his contract, re-obtaining the rights to Carousel.

The support of his fans has given Hoge the ability to tour incessantly, and self-release a couple live albums (2004's Almost Alone: Live At Smith's Olde Bar' and 2005's During the Before and After), a politically charged album called The America EP (which included a cover of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin')", and a bluesy rock and roll sounding album, The Man Who Killed Love.

Over the years, Hoge has toured with many artists, including Midnight Oil, Shinedown, Needtobreathe, Marc Broussard, ZZ Top, The Cat Empire, Squeeze, Jason Isbell, Lisa Loeb and Edwin McCain. Bands that have opened for him include Steel Train, The Trews, The Elms, Rose Hill Drive, Needtobreathe, Moses Mayfield, The Alternate Routes, Aslyn, Katie Herzig, Missy Higgins, and The Civil Wars.
Blake Burrow
Blake Burrow
Blake Burrow knows country. Raised smack-dab in the middle of nowhere in West Texas, he grew up living the country songs he writes and sings. Like many of his honkytonk heroes, Blake started out singing in the church choir and then moved his music into his everyday life. And that everyday country lifestyle is what you’ll hear in each of his original songs. In the time of Nashville sparkle and songwriting mills, this authentic country boy hits a down-home note that we can all relate to.
Gary Kyle
Gary Kyle
Raised in Kingwood, TX, just outside of Houston, Gary grew up the youngest of six children in a very musically charged family. Gary's father, who passed when Gary had just turned a year old, was a country/bluegrass performer for years, and his mother sang and performed in theatre. Gary's life took a dramatic change at the age of 13, when Gary's 19 year old vivacious, free-spirited brother, was diagnosed with Leukemia. He passed just months later. After that, life took on a whole new meaning for Gary. It shook him into the realization that life is too short and too precious to be taken for granted. Gary then made a vow to follow his heart and cherish each moment to the fullest. This passion for life later became the basis of the title track of his debut CD, aptly entitled "Livin". When Gary was a senior in high school, his mother gave him his father's guitar. Making good on a promise to his mother that he would attend college and earn a degree, Gary attended the University of North Texas in Denton where he majored in Marketing and Sociology. Music took precedence over academia, however, but after six years of college (no, he is not a doctor!) Gary earned his degree. Gary has a relentless passion for performing, and his unorthodox connection with the audience, leaves an undeniable mark on all who see him play.

Gary has released three studio albums: Livin, Turn this Life Around, and Texas Strong. He has had 4 singles charting in the top 30 on the Texas Charts. His title cut to his newest record "Texas Strong" is the theme song for the popular TV show Lone Star Roads with Justin Frazell. Gary is always writing new material and he is working on his fourth record. He has found a new love for producing and artist development and has been producing and writing for several other artists. If you haven't seen a Gary Kyle show then you need to find out when he is in your area and mark it on your calendar! With a band second to none and an incredible energy on stage good times will be had by all.
