CHUCK CANNON Chuck grew up in the South Carolina Lowcountry. He is a Southern boy whose voice echoes the R&B, Rock & Roll, Gospel, and Country music he grew up listening to. He is a multi-award winning songwriter who has been covered by an incredibly diverse array of mega-stars ranging from Pop artists such as Paul Carrack (Mike & The Mechanics, Squeeze and Ace) and Shawn Mullins to Country artists George Jones, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Wynonna Judd, George Strait and Toby Keith, to Euro-Pop super-group BoyZone and 80’s rock superstar band NightRanger, and Gospel’s Russ Taff and Bebe Winans. Chuck’s numerous # 1 and top ten songs have logged over 25 million radio airplays and he has been the recipient of multiple BMI Million-Air awards. His song, “I Love The Way You Love Me,” won the Academy of Country Music Song of the Year. His critically acclaimed solo music projects, GOD SHAPED HOLE, LOVE AND MONEY, and SYMPHONY OF SCARS reflect the depth of his art ... the production is haunting with wide open spaces supporting songs that are quite simply, stunning. His spoken-word project, TRUE STORIES AND OTHER LIES: VOLUME ONE, is a collection of soul-deep stories that takes the listener on a breathtaking journey of laughter and tears through the life of an artist of The American South. more >>>
Rick Brantley was born and raised in the musical mecca of Macon, Georgia, a preacher’s son, soaking up the strains of gospel music, fire-and-brimstone sermons and the echoes of musical legends: Blind Willie McTell, Otis Redding, The Allman Brothers. “My Dad dug the local heroes, and was big on pop/rock hitmakers of the 70’s, too, like Three Dog Night. We had a little home recording studio; music was such a part of everything”, Rick says. He was also inspired by singer-songwriters like Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel. “You learn from those guys and they lead you to Kristofferson, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt,” he adds. Brantley learned his lessons well: barely out of high school, his own songs and red-hot band performances led to a publishing contract and new home base in Nashville. Since then, his songs have been covered by artists ranging from Meat Loaf to country crooner David Nail, while he’s continued honing his stage chops as both full-tilt rock-show frontman and acoustic solo performer, opening for acts as diverse as John Hiatt, Zac Brown Band, Better Than Ezra, and Steve Earle.

Brantley’s brand-new EP, LO-FI, leans into his thoughtful, thought-provoking side. “I was on the road last year with Hiatt — just me and an acoustic guitar — and only my previous rock record to sell.” The difference in styles influenced a conversation with award-winning songwriter Mark Selby, Rick’s producer. “We had these songs that were never going to be on the full-band rock record we’re working on — more like singer-songwriter stuff. So, we just decided to make a live-in-the-studio record of those tunes, with just us playing.” more >>>
