New on The Show

Tiffany Huggins Grant

“Love Letters” - this new one I really like her voice, she sings it like she means it -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire 

Americana/ Alt. Country / Country Americana

Tiffany Huggins Grant is known to Nashville music fans for her original, captivating blend of soul, blues, and country. Her evocative lyrics and music draw heavily from personal, yet universal experiences, and has been described as Americana Soul.

Born in Atlanta, and a songwriter from the age of 16, Tiffany was a finalist in the Georgia Music Industry Association's annual songwriting competition and shortly thereafter won the John Jarrard Scholarship to the prestigious NashCamp songwriting camp.
At age 17, she performed at Nashville's renowned Bluebird Cafe.
Upon moving to Nashville, Tiffany began work on her 2012 debut album. Titled SING SIGH KITTY,” it featured many of the original songs which have gained her a growing fan base from performances at Nashville's The 5 Spot, French Quarter Cafe, The Pond, and Windows on the Cumberland, as well as Atlanta venues The Red Light Cafe and Eddie's Attic.
In Nashville, Tiffany teamed up with Mark Houser of Writers In House Music Publishing, with whom she co-wrote two of the album's songs. Mark describes Tiffany as "one of those of those voices that make you want to hear more. She has such control and such a raw bluesy sound. You can actually feel the words she is singing. Truly a very talented songwriter as well."

Tiffany counts Susan Tedeschi and Delbert McClinton among her vocal influences, while her songwriting has drawn inspiration from Darrell Scott and Patty Griffin. Her fresh, richly-layered lyrics and infectious melodies resonate with audiences, and are served up by her powerful yet nuanced soul-infused vocals.

Her new album release JONQUIL CHILD (MP3 - ) is the first album to fully capture Grant’s estimable talent, it is her second CD, following 2012’s Sing Sigh Kitty. “I’ve been writing songs since before I was 14, and most of the songs on Sing Sigh Kitty were over 10 years old,” Grants says. “I needed to get them down on an album, just to move on.
The 12-song album boasts 10 original numbers that bring her honey-and-crystal voice and her songwriting to the fore, reveling in her gift for melody and in her creative vision.
“This album is a direct result of my growth as a person and as a songwriter,” explained Grant. “I’ve wrestled with my demons and discovered how to write songs based on my own life that also speak to the lives of others. It’s been a hard place to get to and it took me more than 10 years, but I’ve come to believe in myself as a singer, songwriter and performer — and to simply believe in myself.” CD Review

“Four Thousand Miles” - "I do like to feature UK music" - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire 
Genre: Country, Rock, Pop
Home Town: Midlands, UK (Leicestershire/Northants band)
Main members: Singer Deeanne Dexeter and guitar player Gareth Thomas

The band has been together for just over one year. In the past 12 months they have played to a total of 35,000 people, and the 2015 C2C Country to Country was their 30th gig together. Before last year’s festival, they had only played four events.

Band singer Deeanne Dexeter, 27, of Market Harborough, said it was exciting and nerve wracking to be on the line-up for Country to Country 2015.

Dexeter guitar player and songwriter Gareth Thomas, 37, said: “Since last year the band’s profile has gone through the roof.”
Respected award winning UK country journalist Alan Cackett flagged up Dexeter as a must see at C2C. Amongst the sea of cowboy hats and plaid shirts the Leicestershire outfit found themselves playing to a huge audience (600 people) at the Big Entrance Stage. Their real trick was to make a bunch of people stood in the concourse at the entrance of the O2 forget that and feel like they were are a proper gig.

Dexeter signed up with new management, called Think Country Promotions. the group are slated to head off to Nashville for showcases and professional writing sessions later in 2015.
Dexeter's new 9 track crowd funded Pledge Music platform funded album titled FOUR THOUSAND MILES TO NASHVILLE, released on July 3, 2015 (Amazon UK - UK iTunes >>  SPOTIFY )
Dexeter who have 9,300 followers on social sites, were #16 UK iTunes Country (#618 overall albums) and briefly peaked at #15 before falling away which coincided with their album launch (“incredible turn out”) which took place at a packed Barfly in Camden, London (with support Liv Austin & Lucy May).
They were the first name to be announced for the Fort San Antone Fort Festival taking place at Great Birchwood Country Park, Warton during 16th, 17th & 18th October 2015
