Grant Langston and the Supermodels   grantlangston.com/
"Working Until I Die is a collection of honky tonk songs that evoke the spirit of some timeless Western singers (Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson) and a few of the recent greats (Dwight Yoakam, Randy Travis, George Strait, and even Willie again). I said “the spirit,” not the voices. There’s a fiesty, witty, independent streak to Grant Langston that ensures he is nobody’s musical clone. And that’s a good thing. When it comes to modern-day self-obsessed country music, finding a new guy in town who isn’t afraid to put it all in perspective by being just plain entertaining goes a long way."--Parcbench

Steven Casper & Cowboy Angst   
"The band’s name and the disc’s title aside, this LA five-piece generates mostly good-time roots-and-rock vibes here, thanks in large part to lead vocalist/guitarist Casper’s own lyrical and melodic predispositions. Even when trying to pull the plug on a relationship, his giveaway title, “How Am I Going To Miss You (If You’re Not Gone)”, keeps the matter light. The band’s exuberant country rock-to-Calexico sound meets with a few smart and subtle production touches as well."--Roots Music Report
Dates coming soon!

Susie Glaze & The HiLonesome Band  
"Susie Glaze & the Hilonesome Band continue to hone and refine their brand of rootsy Americana on their very appealing new album, White Swan. Susie Glaze & the Hilonesome Band continue to hone and refine their brand of rootsy Americana on their very appealing new album, White Swan. Alison Krauss and Union Station remain the most obvious reference point for this troupe…But with White Swan, the band have broadened their bluegrass sound to encompass folky Celtic elements, and the results stand up well alongside the best of AKUS But with White Swan, the band have broadened their bluegrass sound to encompass folky Celtic elements, and the results stand up well alongside the best of AKUS"--Pop Matters
