Dean Winter

Amidst the North Florida oaks, pines and palms a familiar light emanates from over the coast. The sun drenches the landscape during the day and the heat lingers well into the salty night. There’s a smoky bar coated in spilled drinks overflowing with decades of hazy memories and lazy stories. Dean Winter has comfortably set up shop at this intersection of lore and nostalgia, nodding his hat to the past while keeping his eyes forward.

With every passing release Winter evolves as a songwriter finding details in the experience to draw each listener closer. You feel the push and pull between winning and losing and the fleeting euphoria of a dimly lit bar as reality flickers back into existence when the lights come on. The sun rises and this light shines on your heartache and all the overwhelming feelings that come with growing up and growing old next to the ones you love. Ultimately, the music is best left to be experienced and these stories felt, not told.

Nathan Kalish

Nathan Kalish is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, engineer, and wandering storyteller. Born in Milwaukee, WI, to missionary parents, he was moved around for most of his formative years. By the time Kalish had graduated high school, he had already lived all over the Midwest, as well as Western Europe and directly after the wall fell in Eastern Europe.” He then spent over a decade performing music across both, playing bars and Honky-Tonks for 200+ shows a year. Now he lives and creates in Nashville, TN.

On his latest full-length album, Great Big Motel Bed in the Sky, Nathan explores Loss and Love while being accompanied by his band The Derechos. It’s an imperfect lyrical balance between Sincerity and Absurdity, with a sonic mix of Harmony and Grit. Produced by Kalish, this Is a 10- song effort tracked in 3 days at Trace Horse Studio and mixed by Kalish at the Maroon Lagoon. It is inspired by Psychedelic Folk-Rock, and Cosmic Country sounds from the United States of Americana and beyond.

Nathan’s extensive back catalog of independent releases and hard-touring work ethic has landed him on stages with Lucinda Williams, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Lucero and many other current and legacy acts. As a result, he’s earned accolades from Rolling Stone

Country, Billboard, American Songwriter, Saving Country Music, and several other international press outlets. In addition, his writing has been compared to Tom Petty, John Prine, Gram Parsons, and Paul Westerberg.

Jessica Pounds

Jessica is a songwriter and Americana artist. Her music, both lyrical and lilting, often explores somber motifs and has often been described as “eerily hopeful”.

You can call her songs folk or country or Americana, but none of those descriptors is quite right. Her music is rootsy, but sidereal. There is something paradoxical in her songwriting, her dark soprano vocals soaring ethereally, all while displaying melodic styling that borders equally on the obscure and the catchy.

She has performed live onstage with the likes of Americana greats such as Jim Lauderdale and Tania Elizabeth of the Avett Brothers, and has held her own as the front woman of esteemed Jacksonville darlings Canary in the Coalmine.

Jessica now performs regularly between Florida and Nashville, TN, and is working on her first solo release, planned for 2023.
