New on The Show


“Johnny Kicked The Bucket”  - “hard to pigeon-hole, really blends the genres... you can hear Louisiana jazz sound in there..... blew off the cobwebs.... the music does the talking” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Americana / Bluegrass / Alt-Country / Roots
Band Members:  Adele Ingram (guitar, banjo, mandolin and bvs), Louise Potter (drums, percussion and bvs), Lyndsay Crothers (lead vocals, guitar, electric bass, percussion and djembe) and Sharon Morgan (lead guitar, banjo, mandolin and double bass)
Home Town: All over Northern Ireland

Wookalily is a female led Americana folk band with roots in bluegrass and country. They turf out timeless songs from the bogs of Northern Ireland to the bayous of Louisiana. Having been swamped in both musical traditions they’ve managed to create a transatlantic sound that is authentic yet quirky. 
Between hammerin’ out the harmonies, slammin’ on the geetars, slappin’ the bass, beatin the drums, pickin’ on the banjos (not to mention the banjo players) and chopping on the fiddle it’s a miracle Wookalily haven’t been arrested for cruelty to expensive musical instruments. Despite their reckless ways they’ve managed to create a unique and distinctive sound that’s all heart. Their style, sometimes referred to among the lilys as chillbilly roots, has an old-timey feel with a young-timey appeal.
Wookalily released their EP Black Magic Doll in 2011. 
Their song “Diamonds and Gold” gained them an invite to a songwriter’s showcase as part of the prestigious IBMA World of Bluegrass Festival in Nashville in 2012.
They were part of the late Dixie Hall’s (country music hall of famer) all female compilation PICKIN’ LIKE A GIRL in 2013. They were the only band outside of the USA to feature on the album thus becoming DAUGHTERS OF BLUEGRASS.
Their debut album ALL THE WAITING WHILE was released November 2014. The album is gaining increasing airplay on BBC and RTE.
Their unique songwriting and fantastic musicality have carved them a unique place in the Irish music scene seeing them play everywhere from big festivals and stages to intimate residencies in Belfast City's prestigious Cathedral Quarter." -Tina Calder, writer & Co-Founder of Fame Magazine (October 2013)

“My Mistake” – ”I like the vibe to this one” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Current Location: Nashville, TN
Born: Camaron Ochs

A fresh and heartfelt new force in country music that feels like home and sounds like the truth. Cam’s country roots trace back to her grandparents ranch in Southern California: imagine palm trees, horses, a blue barn and a tractor named Big Red.
Her storyteller lyrics walk a romantic line between worldly wisdom and Disney charm, and judging by her fan base this sort of thing appeals to all of us. She writes music that exudes absolute comfort and trust in her own tastes. She is not afraid. Cam is the new kind of cool.
She funded her debut EP ‘Down This Road’ through Kickstarter and has toured all over the world off her own back, moving from her home state of California to Nashville in 2012 because she was asked to write some songs for Faith Hill. Since then she has also been working on producing her own country sound and toured with Dan + Shay.
In January 2015 Sony Music Nashville signed (image) the California native singer-songwriter. As a writer her cuts have spanned pop and country including Miley Cyrus' 2013 platinum album BANGERZ.
Cam is currently recording her Arista Nashville debut album with Grammy®-winning producer Jeff Bhasker (Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, FUN., The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift) and Tyler Johnson (Ed Sheeran, OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Mikky Ekko).
Cam’s debut single, “My Mistake,” written by Cam and producer Tyler Johnson, shipped to country radio on February 3rd 2015. (See Press Release)

Jon Wolfe

“Smile On Mine” – It’s edgy modern but still has a homage to the past, I really like it...rather good I thought” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Country / Acoustic / Singer/Songwriter Austin, TX
A country singer and songwriter. His introduction: Country music, as it was, is and always should be, with boots firmly standing on the bedrock of tradition and an eye focused on taking it into the future. And that, as any fan of true country knows, is no simple proposition.
Wolfe’s music has been burning up the Texas Charts where he garnered six consecutive Top Ten singles  (“Let A Country Boy Love You,” “That Girl In Texas,” “I Don’t Dance,” “It All Happened In A Honky Tonk,” “The Only Time You Call” and “What Are You Doin’ Right Now”), making Wolfe a “must see” act in the Texas touring scene.  A seasoned performer, Wolfe has opened for some of Country’s biggest stars and has played more than 400 live shows over the past four years.
His 2010 release, It All Happened In A Honky Tonk, became such a regional success that it was re-released as a Deluxe Edition by Warner Music Nashville in 2013. The album debuted at #34 on the Billboard Album Chart and has collectively sold 25,000 units.

Wolfe’s much-anticipated forthcoming album, NATURAL MAN was produced by Wolfe, Lex Lipsitz and Billy Decker and recorded at Nashville’s Westwood Studios and Ronnie’s Place. It is described as a 13-track collection of songs that merges Wolfe’s signature traditional sound, influenced by some of Country music’s greatest legends, with an edgy, modern energy. It has a release date of March 31.
Wolfe describes the album as a personal journey, saying, “Natural Man is a concept that I have wanted to record for a few years. This album stretches me as an artist and as a vocalist, while staying true to who I am. I have known how I wanted it to sound, and how I wanted it to look for some time now. I’ve been visualizing this album for such a long time, and it feels great to finally bring it to life!”
His new single "Smile On Mine" (Tone Tree Records / Fool Hearted Productions) hit country radio in late January was released digitally Feb 3, 2015. (Source: Press Release)
