Robby Hecht first fell in love with the emotional potential of music as an awkward pre-teen in Knoxville, lying alone on his bed at night, listening to the hits on the radio. A couple of decades later, Robby tries to capture that same emotional resonance he felt during those earliest interactions with music. His songs blend nostalgia with unabashed honesty: 1970s folk meets personal confessions of the Facebook era.
Caroline Spence has numerous awards and accolades to her credit including winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Artist Competition. She had also been named as a major new talent from American Songwriter Magazine. She is a member of the so-called Nashville Underground, a community of young songwriters who challenge more traditional approaches to their craft. Caroline’s songs range from serious to funny in a wide variety of styles reminiscent of her role model, Bob Dylan.
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Alan Rhody was fascinated by music from an early age. He was a fan of the rock and pop music he heard on the radio and of the bluegrass, blues and folk music he saw performed everywhere in his hometown. He majored in art and graphic design in college and is today an accomplished artist as well as an amazing musician. His songs have been recorded by dozens of artsists, including the Oak Ridge Boys, the Del McCoury Band, George Jones, Tanya Tucker, the Atlanta Rhythm Section, and many, many others.
Mudbone tells the story of American music one song at a time. His performances reach a broad audience by taking them on a journey from the late 19th century when bluegrass met the blues, through country, soul, funk and rock & roll of the 20th century. Mudbone’s musical armory doesn’t only consist of wood, strings, and vocal chords. His mission is to create positive social change through music. He has set out on a journey to do just that…one song at a time.
