Logan Brill finds her roots in the rich musical soil of East Tennessee. This Knoxville native migrated slightly West to Nashville to pursue an education at the acclaimed, Belmont University. Not wanting to limit herself to music, though, she earned a degree in French with a minor in vocal performance, always knowing, however, that music was her true path. It was this instinctive course that led her to signing with Carnival Music in early 2012. Carnival Music is home to the talents of David Nail, Troy Jones, Scooter Carusoe, and many others. Carnival is owned and operated by producer Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Kellie Pickler, Lee Ann Womack) and is responsible for generating eleven number ones in the past decade. She has recently begun writing for her forthcoming project and touring extensively in the Southeast. more >>>

Hailed by American Songwriter as a “sophisticated, introspective singer/songwriter” and as having “a lovely, ever-on-the-verge-of-breaking voice, and knows how to sell a song” by The Washington Post, critically lauded Nashville-based singer-songwriter Holly Williams will self-release her third studio album, The Highway, on Georgiana Records February 5, 2013.

Co-produced by Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars) and Williams, The Highway is the follow-up to 2009’s Here With Me, and is Holly’s first record as an independent artist. Additionally, the album features guest vocals from Jackson Browne (“Gone Away From Me”), Jakob Dylan (“Without You”), Dierks Bientley (“’Til It Runs Dry”) and Gwyneth Paltrow (“Waiting On June”).
Featuring 11 original compositions of “serious-minded, heavy-hearted songwriting she’s done all along,” (Nashville Scene), all songs were either written or co-written by Williams. Writing collaborators include Christopher Coleman (“Happy,” “Let You Go,” “’Til It Runs Dry”) Lori McKenna (“Without You”), Sarah Buxton (“A Good Man”) and Cary Barlowe (“’Til It Runs Dry”). Recorded at The Art House in Nashville, the album was engineered and mixed by Richie Biggs, with additional engineering and mixing by Nick Autry, and Chuck Ainlay.

“I think every artist has their coming of age record,” says Williams. “This one definitely feels like mine in that there was such a shift with me through the process of this record. It was completed in exactly nine months to the day, feeling somewhat like a birth. These songs really brought a focus into my life personally. Since the last record, I turned 30, my grandparents are gone, I’m married now, I’m keeping doggies and gardens alive, I have a clothing store, I have a husband on tour with a huge rock band, so there’s a lot to keep up with. But the highway came calling and I suddenly had this serious longing for the road, the fans, the storytelling, and the life in that living. I’m ready to get back to those wheels and play these songs for everyone.”

The daughter of Hank Williams, Jr. and granddaughter of the legendary Hank Williams, Holly released her debut album The Ones We Never Knew (Universal South) in 2004. The follow-up Here With Me (Mercury Nashville) was released in 2009, earning high praise from The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, People, Entertainment Weekly, American Songwriter, NPR Weekend Edition Sunday.

With a passion for style and fashion, Holly is the owner of H. Audrey, a clothing boutique in Nashville. She also shares her love of food and travel on her blog, The Afternoon Off more >>>
