New on The Show

Cale Tyson

“Lonesome In Tennessee” - ”Very honky tonk reminds me of Dwight Yoakham in places” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire 

Cale Tyson is a singer and songwriter from Nashville, TN. Born in a small town in Texas, he was raised in Fort Worth, the home of Townes Van Zandt and the place where he first heard the classic country sounds that have inspired and enriched his gentle, melancholy, and undeniably whiskey-soaked sound.
In 2013, Tyson released HIGH ON LONESOME, his debut EP, which features Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart) on electric guitar. The release was featured on and in American Songwriter Magazine, as well as numerous other outlets. Tyson has recently been opening shows for Dwight Yoakam on the road, in addition to wrapping up a new record which heavily features Robert Ellis on guitar and vocals. In April 2014, Tyson was featured as one of PolicyMic’s “9 Real Country Music Stars of Our Generation.” In October 2014, Rolling Stone featured Tyson as one of the "10 New Country Artists You Need To Know."
"Old school, sad-bastard outlaw country for a new generation of excited country fans."  - Rolling Stone
Cale Tyson is easy to pick out in a crowd. You can’t miss him: just look for the tall guy in a Stetson hat and classic western wear. Put two and two together and it isn’t hard to guess that Tyson has a hand in country music. His latest EP, Cheater’s Wine, is a six-song goldmine of classic country songs and features Robert Ellis on guitar. Ellis got involved with the project after sitting in with Tyson’s band at a local dive bar during one of Tyson’s weekly performances. “My friend suggested I just go up and ask him if he wanted to work on the EP, and he said ‘yes.’”
Before he was hanging out with Robert Ellis and performing internationally (he has a run of U.K. shows planned for spring), Tyson was an intern at American Songwriter, where he first formed his sensibilities about the songwriting world....Read More....Intern Hall of Fame: Cale Tyson American

Delta Reign

“Country Sunday” – “I think they’re great’s a really delight, love it, the whole album is great, this one particularly struck’s a lovely album and that track is just beautiful”  - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire 

Genre: Bluegrass, Americana, Swing, Folk, Blues
Record Label: Mountain Fever Records
Band Members: Benita Murphy (Lead vocal, Guitar), Pat Murphy (Vocals, Banjo, Dobro), George Mason (Vocals, Fiddle) & Josh Faul (Vocals, Bass)
Home Town: Mobile, AL
Current Location: Mobile, AL
Influences: Flatt and Scruggs, Jim and Jesse, The Osborne Brothers, Vassar Clements
Short Description: "delta bluegrass" from the Mobile River delta region of the gulf coast. As 5 rivers flow together into Mobile Bay to form the delta, so Delta Reign brings together the musical influences of each member...bluegrass, western
swing, blues & jazz...
Delta Reign is made up of the dynamic husband and wife duo of Pat Murphy and Benita Murphy from Mobile, AL, with George Mason and Joshua Faul completing the group.

Pat is a hard-driving and innovative banjo player who assists in the music arrangement. Benita is a singer/songwriter and arranges most of the group's music. She plays a strong rhythm guitar while occasionally adding the rousing swing rhythm that the band is well-known for. Dazzling fans with his fiddle, George is from Gulfport, MS and has an impressive musical resume which is full of exceptional experience that helps set Delta Reign apart. His tenor vocals enhance the group as well. Also from Gulfport, MS, Joshua is the newest member of the band. Originally an electric bass player, he happened upon the upright
bass while filling in with the band for a performance.

There are places in the US where folks are plenty aware of bluegrass, but where some other regional culture holds sway. Such a spot is the US Gulf Coast, from Corpus Christi, TX to Tampa, FL, where tourism and the beach scene dictate the culture of the cities, and fishing and agriculture hold sway in rural and waterfront areas…… Delta Reign flies pretty close to the bluegrass brand, but with distinct elements of swing and folk music in the mix.
