Antique Persuasion
 “When Silver Threads are Gold” – “Really nice project, a brilliant album” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire 

Tribute to The Original Carter Family
Antique Persuasion – is honoring the original trio of A.P., Sara, and Maybelle with this unique collection of Carter Family classics. Antique Persuasion, like The Carter Family, brings two female voices and one male voice together on a dozen of the Carters’ best songs. This tribute album includes “Bury Me Under The Weeping Willow,” which the Carters recorded at the original Bristol sessions and “You’re Gonna Be Sorry Cause You Let Me Down,” the last song ever recorded by The Carter Family.
Bluegrass fans will recognize familiar voices in Antique Persuasion: Brandon Rickman of the Lonesome River Band lends his talents on vocals, guitar, and mandolin; Jenee Fleenor, who can usually be found playing fiddle, mandolin, and guitar and singing background vocals for Blake Shelton & Larry Cordle, brings her talents to bear; and Austin, Texas-based artist Brennen Leigh rounds out the trio.
With the release of DON’T FORGET ME LITTLE DARLING, producer Jimmy Metts honors the timelessness of the original Carter recordings by gathering the talented Rickman, Fleenor, and Leigh around the mic to sing the old favorites using today’s best technology. The arrangements are similar to the original recordings, and the music rings true. Each member of Antique Persuasion sings lead on four songs.
Songs chosen include the first and last songs the Carters ever recorded, “Bury Me Under The Weeping Willow” and “You’re Gonna Be Sorry Cause You Let Me Down”, respectively, along with another ten songs they were known for performing...Read more Bluegrass Today

The Bros. Landreth
”Firecracker” -  “A lovely album... the music is terrific, such a range of styles, the vocals are lovely, the songs are catchy, it really is beautiful” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire 

Members: Joey Landreth - Guitar, Dave Landreth - Bass, Ryan "Rhino" Voth - Drums, Ariel Posen - Guitar
Genre: Americana, Alt-Country, Roots
Hometown: Winnipeg

Slide guitar, blood harmony, and heart-on-your sleeve songwriting. The Brothers Landreth specialize in love gone bad and cowboy lullabies. Reviwew: Twenty seven years. Four bandmates. Two brothers. One album. Let It Lie, the debut release from Canadian roots rockers the Bros. Landreth, is proof that there s strength in numbers.
Anchored by the bluesy wail of electric guitars, the swell of B3 organ, and the harmonized swoon of two voices that were born to mesh. 

At first listen, you might call it Americana. Dig deeper, though, and you ll hear the nuances that separate The Bros. Landreth whose members didn t grow up in the American south, but rather the isolated prairie city of Winnipeg, Manitoba from their folksy friends in the Lower 48.
The spirit of harmonious and melodious country rock burns brightly in Canada....Read More No

It's a little hard to believe that the Bros. Landreth hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba, because of how well they carry the Southern rock mantle of the Allman Brothers on their debut album, 'Let It Lie.' Led by David and Joey Landreth, the foursome does an admirable job of copping a style and a sensibility foreign to their own environs..   Read more Folk

The Malpass Brothers

“Learn To Love Me Too” – “Sound is stone cold country, a gem of a track, blew me away” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire 

Genre: Country  / Americana / Country Americana
Band Members: Chris Malpass and Taylor Malpass
Home Town: Goldsboro, NC
Record Label: Hag Records

“This is who we are…
My brother Taylor and I do the type of music we do because this music speaks to us, and speaks to the souls of its listeners. For us, traditional country music is the ‘real deal’ – every song portrays life’s joys, heartaches, problems and happiness. It comes from the heart, and has depth and truth. Nothing is sugar coated. Our goal, really, is to see this music be revived, to help ensure it doesn’t fade away. It is so encouraging to have young people come to our shows with a new interest in our ‘old music.’ Being able to introduce what we love to another generation feels like a great accomplishment for us. We want his music to be around for our children’s children…” — Christopher Malpass

The first time you meet the Malpass Brothers it doesn't take long before you realize they are as close to real traditional country music artists as you can get these days.

The Malpass Brothers were steeped in country music from an early age when their grandfather began teaching them how to play songs by Hank Williams, Sr., Merle Haggard, Porter Wagoner, Kitty Wells and Ernest Tubb on the guitar.
With traditional country music ingrained into them, it only seemed fitting that they would carry on that family tradition. Little did they know that one day it would lead to a steady gig of performing on stage with one of the country music legends their grandfather admired.

Chris and Taylor Malpass began opening for Merle Haggard in 2008, and continue to follow Haggard all across the U.S. and into Canada broadening their musical talents and comedic whit to audiences all across America and into parts of Canada.

The brothers continue to perform with their own band across the country when not on tour with the Hag. Influenced by the likes of Johnny Cash, Ernest Tubb, Elvis Presley, Faron Young, Waylon Jennings, Marty Robbins, the Louvin Brothers, the Wilburn Brothers and many other artists from that era, the brothers have been able to fine tune their performances into a unique, but current style of traditional country music and comedic banter.
They have also opened for Ray Price, Marty Stuart, Rhonda Vincent and Willie Nelson.
"Memory That Bad" was released in the spring of 2011. The album includes originals by the Malpass Brothers, Haggard, and Joss - along with a few covers of some of the brothers' favorite songs from the past.
They signed an exclusive recording contract with Crossroads’ Organic Records, with the new recording produced by Bluegrass legend, Hall of Fame member Doyle Lawson.  The self titled album was released May 26, 2015.  The label signing came in the same week as the NC brothers’ performance during the World of Bluegrass festival in Raleigh.
Christopher and Taylor tackle brotherly harmonies with covers of the Wilburn Brothers' "Which One Is To Blame" and the Louvin Brothers' "Satan and the Saint," as well as the original tale of unrequited love "I Found Someone to Love."
Christopher supplies the strongest lead vocals as on the Malpass' other original "Learn to Love Me Too," a ballad with touches of Merle Haggard and Gene Watson that deals with self doubt . Other highlights are the Jerry Lee Lewis rockabilly classic "It'll Be Me" delivered here by Christopher with a vocal that sounds more like Carl Perkins, and a pair of Hank Williams covers "Baby, We're Really In Love" and "I Just Don't Like This Kind Of Livin'" on which the vocals sound more like a young Hank Jr.
