Allison Veltz
“Bright Side” - This is just a feel-good - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

About: Allison Veltz
Blaster Records artist Allison Veltz released her debut single “Bright Side” to country radio. The upbeat, feel-good-even-when-you’re-down tune “Bright Side” is penned by Allison with creative partner Dan Muckala and produced by Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Sara Evans) and ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Mucka. >> Listen HERE.

Born in Mobile, Alabama to a unique travelling musical family, Allison started singing at the age of four and quickly learned to play guitar and mandolin, relying on music as her only constant as her family moved across the country to follow their passion. A child of the radio, Allison’s musical influences include Allison Krauss, Jason Mraz, Tom Petty, Nickel Creek, and Dixie Chicks.

As a New Yorker in 2010, she was working as a singing waitress when she received an email inviting her to travel to Nashville to meet Bright, who had heard demos Allison had posted online. In January 2011, Allison booked a one-way ticket to Nashville and never looked back.
Allison’s debut album, Allison’s Wonderland, is an intensely personal journey of eleven songs co-authored by the artist.  It is scheduled for release later this year through Blaster Records.
Press Blurb: Blaster Records released her debut single “Bright Side” to country radio In March 2014. The upbeat, feel-good-even-when-you’re-down tune “Bright Side” is penned by Allison with creative partner Dan Muckala and produced by Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Sara Evans) and ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Muckala. Whistles and mandolin, along with Allison’s breezy and flawless vocals, inspire listeners to take a deep breath and inhale some perspective when dealing with life’s ups and downs.
"I have lived this song so many times in my life,” Allison says of the song.  “If you've hit the bottom you can stay there or you can choose to move. Sometimes it's a beautiful act of defiance to look at the bright side.”.
Bright Side’ from the upcoming album, ALLISON’S WONDERLAND will be available on iTunes on April 29 ....Read More at The Boot

Ags Connolly
I Saw James Hand” - I think he is brilliant...what I loved about it they are all original songs, they’re brilliant, short and perfect for radio” –   Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire  

About: Ags Connolly
Genre: Ameripolitan  Hometown: Finstock, Oxfordshire  Record label: Drumfire Records
He is a traditional country singer-songwriter hailing from West Oxfordshire in the UK. Country is the simplest description, but Ags is a proud supporter of Dale Watson’s ‘Ameripolitan’ movement, which supports new music with a roots influence, away from the modern incarnation of country that exists today (you know the stuff…).
Having attempted to write songs for years, Ags found the confidence to take it seriously after attending a workshop with Nashville super-musician Darrell Scott. Since then he’s performed his own songs at events like the 2013 Country2Country Festival at the O2 in London and shared the stage with artists like Fred Eaglesmith, Paul Kelly, Dean Owens and Dale Watson; the latter being at the Continental Club in Austin, Texas.
Ags’s influences come essentially from hardcore country like David Allan Coe, Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, Robert Earl Keen and Chris Knight. However, he also takes major non-country influences from the likes of Loudon Wainwright III and Ron Sexsmith.
Ags’ debut album HOW ABOUT NOW, produced by Dean Owens, was released on Drumfire Records in February 2014, receiving rave reviews.
 “One of the best records you are likely to hear this year…so strong is Connolly’s writing, dare I suggest that Ags Connolly is the closest we’ve ever come to an English Willie Nelson? Yes, he’s really that good, and his voice is unique.” - Duncan Warwick, Country Music People (5/5, Album of the Month) Read the 5 STAR CD of the Month Review
“‘How About Now’ is a masterpiece of British country” - Maverick

>>WatchHow About Now” performed at The Bullingdon Oxford 
BUY Ags Connolly’s music on: Amazon UK and UK iTunes
