New on The Show:

Tammy Jones Robinette
I Can’t Go Back There” - I think its just a great album, its quite reflective, one of my picks of the evening - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

About: Tammy Jones Robinette
Genre: Bluegrass / Gospel  Location: USA: Ohio (OH)
Influences: Connie Smith, Loretta Lynn, Ricky Skaggs, The Whites

Tammy started singing when she was only eight years old. Her Mom and Dad were regulars at area revivals and church services across Ohio and Kentucky.  Tammy and her three siblings would sing together as The Jones Family for twelve years.
The family group recorded with the Eddie Crook Company in Nashville for several years.
It was during these recordings that Tammy penned several songs for The Jones Family that caught the attention of several nationally known groups in the industry.
When the group disbanded in the late nineties, Tammy and her husband Jim (aka Rob) still felt the call of the Lord on her life to share her singing ministry.
With a self penned song entitled "Who I Am" Tammy launched her solo ministry to radio. It has now been twenty years since that decision and Tammy and Jim continue to travel across the country sharing the good news in song.
Tammy recorded four albums as a soloist with Zion Music Group and producer Kevin McManus.
Jim and Tammy love southern gospel and bluegrass music and host a radio program called "The Southern Celebration" on WLRD 96.9.
Her first bluegrass project, LET IT SHINE, was recorded at Skaggs Place and Hilltop  Studio in Nashville.
They enlisted an A-list team of pickers and singers in support of Let It Shine. Playing bass and producing is Mark Fain, with Ron Block on guitar and banjo, Aubrey Haynie on fiddle, Andy Leftwich on mandolin, and Rob Ickes on reso-guitar. Assisting with harmony vocals are Jamie Dailey, Jeff Parker, Dale Ann Bradley, Steve Gulley, Cheryl White, Sharon Skaggs, and Jeff Pedersen.
Exciting to see what is in store for 2014, Tammy put together live dates with these great pickers Mark Fain, Troy Engle, Sierra Hull, Cody Kilby, and Justin Moses.

Peter Mulvey
"You Don’t Have To Tell Me" - I did think that one had a really great vibe - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

About: Peter Mulvey:
Over the past 20 years, Mulvey has pursued a restless, eclectic path as a writer and musician – immersing himself in Tin PanAlley jazz, modern acoustic, poetry, narrative, and Americana stylings. Relentlessly touring as a headliner – his attitude is, “When you love what you do, you can work all the time,” – he has also shared the stage with luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Richard Thompson, Ani diFranco, Indigo Girls, and Greg Brown, and has attracted an audience that stretches from Anchorage to Amsterdam.
Peter Mulvey began as a self-described “city kid” from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He played, wrote, and sang in bands while studying theatre there, and then traveled to Dublin, Ireland, in 1989, where he learned the trade of the street singer. Returning to the States, he relocated to Boston with two self-released CDs in hand: Brother Rabbit Speaks (1992) and Rain (1994). In Boston he took to playing in the subways as a full-time occupation. The seven hour sessions playing to passers-by and commuters not only strengthened his accomplished guitar playing but also sharpened his innate gifts as a communicator. In a few short years he had made the transition to touring songwriter. He signed with indie upstart Eastern Front Records, released Rapture (1995) and Deep Blue (1997), and threw himself into a life on the road.
For the past several years Peter has done an annual Fall tour entirely by bicycle, partly for environmental reasons and partly for the sheer fun of continuing his creative, unorthodox approach to a long and fruitful career as an artist.
In every aspect of his career, Mulvey draws on an extremely broad swath of influence; he is always reading, listening, and eager to hear new poetry, modern minimalist composers, old-time fiddle tunes, Argentinean trip-hop, or top-shelf bar bands.
 “Peter Mulvey is consistently the most original and dynamic of the US singer-songwriters to tour these shores. A phenomenal performer with huge energy, a quick fire, quirky take on life, and an extraordinary guitar style. A joy to see.” - The Irish Times
Immersed in language, art, and music, Mulvey's playing ranges from tender acoustic picking to rootsy blues & jazz.
"His voice feels like fine old leather, and his guitar sounds like it's on steroids... a superb technician..." - Boston Globe
In 2014 he launched a successful crowd funded Kickstarter campaign for his new record, SILVER LADDER (982
Backers pledged $62,247 of a $23,000 goal). It was released April 1, 2014 on Signature Sounds. It was produced by Chuck Prophet and made in Los Angeles.
Peter recently completed a UK tour finishing up at The Old Queen’s Head in London supporting Kimmie Rhodes.

Emma Stevens
“Once” I like it, very catchy, nice singer-songwriter, nice easy listening music - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

About: Emma Stevens
Haunting folk/pop with a twist and lots of sparkle. I play guitar, piano, ukulele, cello, banjo and mandolin
Genre:  Singer-Songwriter/folk/country/pop

Emma began her musical journey when she was bought her first guitar at the age of 3, after being enchanted by her Mum’s playing. She began taking lessons in cello and piano, became a member of the Surrey Youth Orchestra and involved herself with numerous music clubs in and out of school.
Emma enrolled at the Academy of Contemporary music, where she studied Guitar and Performance – this not only improved Emma’s confidence as a performer, but taught her valuable lessons as a songwriter.
She began playing for artists and bands, including fiN., H- Boogie, and Ronit, this led her to touring worldwide with bands such as The Kooks, Mona, Feeder and Incubus. No stranger to the stage, Emma would often perform at arena style venues to up to 20,000 a night!
When she was discovered by music manager, Bob James – Emma’s song writing career took off. She found herself working with established artists and songwriters all over the world, frequently making trips to LA, Nashville and Europe. Korean boy band “SHINee” released one of Emma’s songs on their album and it sold 100,000 copies in its first week of release, hitting the number 1 spot.
With a passion for performing, and longing to release her own music, Emma decided to concentrate on her career as a singer-songwriter. Her music is catchy and filmic, and has been used on TV, clients including BBC and ITV. She has also worked with artists such as Kate Nash, Passenger and Jenn Bostic, who she supported on her recent UK tour. When Emma lost her Mum to cancer in 2012, she dealt with it in the only way she knew – through her music and song-writing. Emma planned a series of 4 EPs, each one with a unique and beautiful artwork designed by her Mum. Emma’s Mum made the designs as a gift to Emma, and completed them just two weeks before she died. When all 4 are collected they will fit together like a puzzle to make a larger beautiful painting.
This combination of art and music typifies Emma’s unique approach to her work. Playing guitar, piano, cello, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, percussion and baritone guitar, all 4 EPs showcase Emma’s talents as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

On March 31, 2013 she released a 4 Track EP titled  “Dreaming Trees” available on iTunes
Her 14 track album “Enchanted” (Rising Tide Music/Emma Stevens Music) was released on 13 October 2013
