New on The Show

Sam Lewis
“Texas” - best harmonica playing ever listen out for the bridge…. thought that was rather nice” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Country, Soul
Record Label: Brash Music
Nashville-based Country & Soul Artist
With his compelling songs, stirring melodies, and preternaturally soulful voice, Sam Lewis has quickly established himself as one of Nashville’s most talented new tunesmiths. Waiting On You – his sophomore album via Brash Music and follow-up to 2012’s self-titled debut – reverberates with earnest emotion and restless energy, rich with the intimate lyricism of folk, country’s raw integrity, and a lived-in muscularity born of Lewis’ captivating vocal timbre.

 Songs like “3/4 Time” and the tender title track are intuitive and organic, the rollicking “Things Will Never Be The Same” groove-powered and irresistible. Produced by The Wood Brothers’ Oliver Wood (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Shemekia Copeland) and featuring a stellar supporting cast of Music City’s finest session musicians, Waiting On You reveals Sam Lewis to be an exceptionally gifted troubadour, forthright, genuine and completely his own.
The self-described “typical kid with a guitar, going from Nirvana to Bob Dylan,” Lewis spent much of his youth on the move, with Asheboro, North Carolina as much a hometown as any. In TN, Lewis joined a buddy in Knoxville, paying his bills with a paycheck from Walmart Vision Center. He spent his off time penning his first-ever batch of songs, playing them out in countless coffee shops. By 2008 Lewis believed he had grown enough as a performer and an artist to self-release One’s a Long Time, Two’s a Fly By, an acoustic collection showcasing his gritty baritone and developing songcraft. A year later he packed his guitar and songs and made the inevitable move to Nashville.

Nashville transplant and singer-songwriter Sam Lewis has shared bills with some of the city’s most respected names, from Marty Stuart to Chris Stapleton to Leon Russell. His forthcoming sophomore full-length Waiting On You, which follows his 2012 self-titled debut, reflects those experiences with an all-star cast in the studio and a sound that’s clearly been honed by experience. Featuring appearances by The McCrary Sisters, Kenny Vaughan, Darrell Scott and more, Waiting On You was recorded at Southern Ground Studios in just three days and produced by The Wood Brothers’ Oliver Wood.
There’s a tremendous amount of love and understanding in these recordings,” Lewis said. “My appreciation for the players and their talents on this album continue to overwhelm me. I couldn’t be more excited to officially set these songs free out into the universe.

Finnders & Youngberg (Fy5)
“She Wants To Eat The Moon” – “I do particularly like her vocal, Erin Youngberg, it’s the title track and I think it’s rather good….unusual title but I think it’s great” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Colorado’s FY5 - Finnders & Youngberg proudly swim in the deep currents of American music—classic bluegrass, tried-and-true honky tonk, country swing and skillfully spun folk tales.
FY5, also known as Finnders and Youngberg, deliver bluegrass harmonies and honky-tonk drive with virtuosic picking and fiddling in these epic new American songs from the Rocky Mountains.

FY5, made up of five master musicians: Mike Finders (Guitar), Erin Youngberg (Bass), Aaron Youngberg (Banjo), Rich Zimmerman (Mandolin) & Ryan Drickey (Fiddle). They have a pioneering spirit when it comes to roots music. Combining the traditional Appalachian old-time and honky tonk strains of the East with a spirit of adventure of the West, Eat The Moon showcases a band with a newfound maturity and purpose. 

Bluegrass harmonies meld with virtuosic picking and fiddling. Rooted in tradition, yet at the same time pointing to new creative directions, Eat The Moon is an excellent Americana album....Overall, EAT THE MOON, is a great roots album. It’s fresh and different. The musicianship on this record is absolutely superb! I preferred the tracks where Erin Youngberg had lead vocals, but Mark Finders’ vocals are nothing to scoff at, I merely enjoyed those songs more. If you’re looking for an enjoyable roots/bluegrass/Americana album, you definitely need to take a listen to this one! (For The Country Record -Review)
Elsewhere its calmer waters as the band breeze into the album. The sweet title song displays all that’s good here, deft guitar picking, rippling mandolin and plucky fiddling all ensconced in a warm and honeyed pedal steel weft. Reminiscent of the likes of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band circa American Dream it marries a pop sensibility with a rootsy feel and is tailor-made for airplay (Folk Radio UK)
Eat the Moon was reviewed in the October 2015 issue of Country Music People and was awarded 4 STARS by Spencer Leigh

“My Pain Ain’t News” – “Back with new album, a staggering 32 tracks…this one’s my pick I just think it’s a brilliant song..I thought that was really greatMarie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

I'm a person who likes commercial Nashville country, but when I set out to write it, sometimes things get "interesting." Nashville country gets tangled up with NJ, NYC and Brooklyn sensibilities and neuroses, taking the music in strange new directions.
Hometown:  Born in NYC. Grew up in a small town in New Jersey right over the bridge. Both of her parents taught in Manhattan, and that’s where they went on weekends to make life more interesting.

Current Town: She lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Had tenure at a community college on Long Island; she taught there while living in Brooklyn and then in Manhattan.
She's a songwriter, as well as a playwright. She put out her first CD: called BROOKLYN COWGIRL. she shared "to show I get the joke, I’m an unlikely person to be doing country music".

2015, ten years later, she finally released the sequel, with pictures from the same photo shoot and all, called THE BROOKLYN COWGIRL RIDES AGAIN.
With a one-year sabbatical she wound up running away from home to Nashville, and not going back. She gave up tenure, she explained "This seemed like a dubious move during the Recession, when I was unemployed and underemployed. At the moment, I’m teaching at Vanderbilt full-time and I’m very happy. Nashville is a great town for songwriters – it can be more isolating for playwrights, however"…Read More
The new album was made album of the week on Cool Country on Manx radio
It was reviewed in the October 2015 issue of Country Music People and was awarded 3.1/2 STARS out of 5.
