John Paul Keith
- Following a self-imposed musical exile, singer and guitarist John Paul Keith exploded onto the Memphis scene in 2009 with "Thrills and Spills", and continued the upward trend with his 2013 release on Fat Possum's Big Legal Mess imprint.  Produced by the late, great Roland Janes, "Memphis Circa 3 A.M." is an instantly timeless record that reveals the range of JPK's songwriting prowess as he wrestles with love and loss across twelve new, yet already familiar tunes.

Amy LaVere - Since moving to Memphis and releasing the dreamy country/folk of "This World Is Not My Home" (Archer Records), LaVere has been one of the city's most recognized and prolific artists.  The lifelong wanderer has made her home on the road, touring nonstop from the west coast to eastern Europe behind her appropriately titled new LP, "Runaway's Diary."  LaVere has also increasingly graced the silver screen in recent years, with a dozen credits already to her name.

North Mississippi Allstars formed in 1996; the product of a special time for modern Mississippi country blues. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson soaked up the music of their father, Memphis legend Jim Dickinson, and absorbed the North Mississippi legacy while playing and shaking it down in the juke joints with their blues ancestors. R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Otha Turner and their musical families were at their peak, making classic records and touring the world. Eventually, Luther (guitar, vocals) and Cody (drums, vocals) formed the North Mississippi Allstars and pioneered their own brand of blues-infused rock and roll. In 2013 the North Mississippi Allstars released their seventh studio album, World Boogie Is Coming.
