Stevie Tombstone - After a chance meeting with Roy Acuff, Stevie (then, a young man) was certain he would always be a musician. Born in rural Georgia, Stevie learned the ropes playing country, gospel, and blues. Rebelling against his roots, he immersed himself in the world of rock and the underground music scene of the 80s in Atlanta but never lost the twang of his childhood. Almost three decades later, he has become an accomplished performer and songwriter. Stevie has now released five solo albums and several music videos, produced music with his 1980s swamp rockabilly band, The Tombstones, and made appearances on compilations all over the damn place. In his early days, Stevie penned the college radio anthem and regional hit "Nobody", which was later recorded by rock icon, Stiv Bators. After separating with The Tombstones in the 1990s, he toured as the supporting act for Jason & the Scorchers in Europe, which opened the door for his solo career. Taking a more serious approach to songwriting, he then began to write with as many accomplished song-writers as he could find in every realm of the music world, from street poets to music row regulars.

Jimmy Nash, who grew up sleeping on the floors of recording studios where his parents were working, never thought he would grow up to follow in his family’s footsteps. All he knew at that time was that making records took too long and was way too boring. Well, he grew up to find himself in Brotheryn Studios with producer Todd Hannigan recording his own songs. Not so boring anymore! A singer/songwriter who is breaking new ground in the world of Acoustic Pop. He was born in Houston, bounced around Nashville for his formative years, sang all around the great state of Texas, then Jimmy made his way to California to find his true musical calling. An acoustic base with an insanely soaring vocal range is what he is working with. In addition to singing, he plays guitar, ukulele, and piano. He also writes every song with his songwriting partner who happens to be his mother, Kim Nash.
