Colter Wall
Colter Wall
Colter Wall is a prairie-born songwriter from Saskatchewan, Canada. Wall's inaugural EP, Imaginary Appalachia, continues to keep him a non-stop, buzzed-about young artist and has evoked visceral reactions from industry veterans, his musical heroes and peers, as well as a loyal and quickly-growing grassroots fan base. His signature baritone vocal is paired with sparse, beautiful old-soul songwriting inspired by artists like Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, Emmylou Harris & Waylon Jennings.
Ian Noe
Ian Noe
Born May 9, 1990 in Eastern Kentucky, Ian Noe had a guitar in his hand from an early age. Brought up on the great ones of folk, Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, John Prine, and others, Ian quickly developed a knack for acoustic roots music. He began playing in local talent shows, school assemblies, and festivals.
It was only in the early part of 2007 that Ian even began writing music, and it was quickly evident he had a great ability to tell stories of his own through music. He entered the Appalachian StarSearch in Hazard on October 20, 2007, and won the grand prize singing his original song Don’t Let The Morning Bring Ya Down. Due to that win, Ian was invited to perform at a Rhonda Vincent concert in Hyden a few days later.
He began working on more songs and began recording for his first album in mid November. The process was quick, as he had all 10 songs recorded in a little over a month. He wrote and performed every note on the disc, Ian Noe.
After the tragic events at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia in April of 2007, Ian wrote a song dedicated to the victims of the tragedy. He played this song, Sweet Virginia for Virginia Tech students in April 2008 on the anniversary of the shooting.
In June 2008, Ian won first place in the State FFA Talent Competition in Louisville, Kentucky.
Ian was also named as one of the 5 finalists in the Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Competition.
Ian plays several instruments including guitar, harmonica, and piano.
John Clay
Born and raised in eastern Ky, John Clay has traversed many genres to finally land in these current waters that he finally feels at home in. Spending the past few years studying songwriting and immersing himself in classic country artists like Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, Gary Stewart. Folk/Rock greats like Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Blaze Foley, Bruce Springsteen, Jim Croce. And current loves James McMurtry, Drive By Truckers, Chamberlain, Jason Isbell, and Ryan Adams, Clay feels like he's stirred the creation pot long enough and is ready to pour everyone a bowl of music.
