New on The Show

Marcum Stewart

“Me Before You” - I think it’s really nice, between contemporary and traditional, just the way we like it...very strong song, a hint of John Berry, very nice song from him -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Singer/Songwriter, Country, Americana
Marcum Stewart - Vocals, Guitar, Piano
Home Town: Nashville, TN
Marcum Stewart is a Recording Artist & Songwriter for Otter Rapids Music (SESAC) in Nashville, TN.

Originally from Huntington, WV, Marcum Stewart started playing piano at the early age of 4, began writing songs at the age of 12, and taught himself how to play Guitar at age 15. He was in several bands before moving to Nashville, including one in Huntington with well-known Nashville songwriter/artist Rick Huckaby called Southern Knights.
Marcum moved to Nashville, TN in 1994 to pursue a career as a songwriter/producer. Early in his career he was the Catalog anager/Tape Room Guy for two publishing companies in town (Island Bound Music & Rick Hall Music). Along with tape copy, he was assistant engineer to Island Bound Studio's house engineer at the time, Luke Wooten.
In 95 & 96 he joined a country songwriters group that Brenda Cline put together called the "Young Riders" which comprised of himself, Rachel Proctor, Kenny Horton & Tom Wurth.
Marcum never claimed to be a singer nor had the desire to be a performer, but joined a local rock band in '98 called Seven Stories High which ended up becoming Subsonic to play Rhythm Guitar, but they lacked a singer. Marcum stepped in and sang for them. In 2003 that same band had a deal on the table with Wind-Up Records which ultimately fell through.
Through a couple other attempts with Rock bands (Tragedy Kings & Bluecollar Suicide), Marcum eventually went back to his roots & love of Country.
For a little over 2 years he was in the duo with Andrea Villarreal called Acklen Park, they had some chart success with their song "Great American Song" which peaked at #48, had a video on TCN and gained thousand of fans on Facebook & Twitter.
An EP “Little By Little” dropped in Sept 2012 via Amazon UK, UK iTunes and
Marcum began focusing more on his songwriting career and signed with Dan Hodges Music in 2012.
His new album released Oct 28, 2014 titled PUT IT IN DRIVE (Otter Rapids Music) is available on Amazon UK, UK iTunes and and is being promoted via introductory single “Me Before You”

“Light The Tree Lights” - One of the most beautiful tracks of the evening, when I hear a band like this I think Wow! Her [Sara Milonovich] voice is an absolute delight, perfect for this time of year, a lovely track,  I think they’ve got a great sound -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Founded on 2008
Home Town: Beacon, NY

Current Location: Beacon, NY
Genre: Indie Roots Rock/Alt-Country
Band Members:
Sara Milonovich - vocals, fiddle, guitar
Greg Anderson - guitars, vocals
Andy Goessling - mandolin, dobro, banjo, guitar, vocal
Influences: Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros, Neko Case, Dixie Chicks, KT Tunstall, Kathleen Edwards, Stuart Duncan, Red Hot Chili Peppers

Indie roots rock with a barbed wire edge. A fiddle-driven Neko Case meets female Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros.

Daisycutter is a band of adventurous travelers from the many and varied music scenes of New York, who combine a wide-screen city view with a bracing dose of rural realism.
Daisycutter is the "downtown upstate" culmination of the NY musical melting pot in action. They combine a wide-screen city view with a bracing dose of rural realism into a searing mix of indie roots-rock and alt-country. Frontwoman/ singer/ fiddler/ songwriter Sara Milonovich has also been a highly sought-after accompanist in the rock, folk, bluegrass, americana, and celtic music worlds, and has performed and recorded throughout North and South America, Europe and beyond. 

Growing up on a working farm in rural upstate New York, she began playing when she was four, and by nine was leading her own band (around the same time she learned to drive a tractor.) After a collection of awards for fiddling, singing, songwriting, and composing, she left school at sixteen to hit the road with NY bluegrass band The McKrells. A diverse trajectory led her from there through a busy career as an accompanist and collaborator with such artists as Richard Shindell, Pete Seeger (on his Grammy-winning At 89 album), Eliza Gilkyson, and Mountain Quickstep, among others, while simultaneously earning a degree in Biology from Cornell.

Michelle Lewis

“None of That Now” -  I think she sounds better than ever on this new release, it’s beautiful..... beautiful voice and a lovely sound that hooks you in, only the second time and it felt like I was listening to it all my life” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Folk Singer/Songwriter
Hometown: Boston, MA
"Michelle Lewis writes happy songs that bring tears, and sad songs that evoke smiles."

Her music is rich with melody, and her lyrics seek beauty in the face of sadness. 
Too refined to call folk and too personal to call pop, as a singer/songwriter Michelle’s music is uniquely intimate, and surprisingly polished. As a storyteller, she writes intensely visual songs that explore the emotional remainders in burgeoning and breaking relationships.

Michelle Lewis picked up her father’s acoustic guitar at the age of 14 and quickly abandoned interest in everything else.
She honed her songwriting at Berklee College of Music in her hometown of Boston, and went on to tour the United States behind her first album, This Time Around (2004). She has been a long time collaborator with producer Anthony J. Resta (Elton John, Duran Duran, Shawn Mullins). Their work has included the release of her Broken (2009) and Paris (2011) EPs, and most recently her second full-length album, The Parts Of Us That Still Remain (April 29, 2014), with songs co-written by Nashville favorite Robby Hecht and LA sound designer Conan Skyrme.

She released a new holiday single "In The Bleak Midwinter" on Dec 1, 2014
