Mindy Miller
“Same Old Song & Dance” – “New name to me, this is the particular track that really stood out” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Rank #8 US Minneapolis, Country / Contemporary Country / Pop

Birth Name: Mindy Michelle Miller  Born: February 5th, Liberal, KS

Hometown: Kismet, KS   Label: Margdon Records Inc

LET IT BURN is the breakout album from country entertainer, Mindy Miller. She was signed to Margdon Records, Nashville in early 2014. Mindy is a veteran singer and songwriter that took an extended hiatus from the music industry to care for her ill mother. Now, after the untimely loss of her mother, Mindy has come back full steam ahead and more inspired than ever. This is her third studio album release and the first in which a mainstream country single, titled 'Wrong', is being released. Mindy Miller has always been sophisticated in her delivery and this album adds a bit of sass to her message.

  • Mindy Miller, grew up in the small town of Kismet, KS, and began singing at her church at the age of five. Throughout her childhood and teenage years, she also performed at many of the functions in and around Liberal, KS. Along with singing in the school choirs and show choirs, she performed in all the musicals in high school and college.
  • She began singing competitively at age fifteen, appearing in state-wide televised telethons and hosting pageants. Mindy also received the honor of opening for Diamond Rio, Ty Herndon, Tracy Lawrence, Terri Clark, and John Berry at her local state fairs. Along with developing her singing, Mindy learned to play the piano and began writing music. Mindy furthered her education with an Associate’s Degree at Hutchinson Community College and graduated from Fort Hays State University with a Bachelor’s Degree, all the while continuing her singing career throughout her studies.
  • During college, Mindy began touring around central Kansas with a band and eventually made it to Nashville to record her first demo album in 1999, with current producer, Curt Ryle.
  • At 22, she signed with an independent country music label and went on to be nominated for the American Horizon Award and Best Female Singer of the Year at the 1999 Independent CMA Germany Awards.
  • She was also featured in the May 1999 edition of “Country Music People” magazine.
  • In 2000, Mindy recorded her second album entitled “Perfectly” again with Ryle. When her mother fell ill to cancer in 2000, Mindy wasn’t able to continue to fulfill her obligations with the label. Her record deal was dissolved.
  • Mindy took a break from music to focus on her personal life and to deal with the death of her mother in 2003. However, in 2010, she was presented with an opportunity to record a demo album in Nashville, again with producer, Ryle. As a direct result of her renewed commitment and passion, Mindy is now signed with Margdon Records, Nashville, and has released her 3rd full length album, the 10 track  “LET IT BURN.”
  • Her CD Release Party took place at the Fiddle & Steel Guitar Bar on Thursday May 8th, 2014 - Flyer
  • Mindy currently resides in Minnesota and continues to serve as a member of the worship team at her church.

Bronwynne Brent
“Dark Highway” -  “Primarily a folk album, I think this is perfect for us” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Folk, Americana, Contemporary Folk, Music, Singer/Songwriter, Alternative Folk
Hometown: Greenville, MS
Record label: None
Current Location: In between Mississippi and Texas

Born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, American roots songwriter Bronwynne Brent has the kind of stop-in-your-tracks voice that sounds like Southern sunshine. Though her new album, STARDUST, was recorded in Seattle, it’s the kind of album that could only come out of the South. There’s a hint of Delta blues behind the ache in her songs, a glimpse of honky-tonk twang, an echo of riverboat can-cans, a whiff of Morricone, and an atmosphere of the darker side of country songwriting. Harkening back to the glory days of Lee Hazlewood and Gram Parsons, Brent’s songs tap into the dark undercurrent of country that starts with old Appalachian murder ballads and continues to today’s current crop of psychedelic country songwriters. Like a Juke Joint Nancy Sinatra, Bronwynne Brent unites all the best elements of Southern American roots music, and ties these many different influences into a sound that’s both comforting and refreshing.
Recorded and produced by Johnny Sangster he brought in ace musicians like drummer John Convertino of Calexico and bassist Keith Lowe (Fiona Apple, Bill Frisell), and a diverse array of instrumentalists featuring everything from trumpets to a Hammond organ, banjo, even a plucked piano, allowed Sangster to carefully build the soundscape around each song.
 “I loved being in Texas and living out in the hill country,” Brent says. “It felt like the old west to me. People still wear cowboy hats and hang out in front of the feed store. It's surreal. I was by myself and would get a little spooked at night, so I would fall asleep watching, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”
From her beginnings as the youngest of four in a musical family – her sister is blues pianist Eden Brent – to earning comparisons to some of music’s brightest lights, Brent’s love of the “minor key” has served her well.
Brent says, "In this album, there is more room for my voice; I think I am more exposed than I was on Deep Black Water.”
