MARGO PRICE

"one of the most compelling country talents to come out of Nashville" (Vulture). Margo Price's most recent release, All American Made was written alongside partner/husband Jeremy Ivey and unapologetically depicts the trials of ever day life, politics and sexism. It was hailed as "a potential classic," by Pitchfork and Rolling Stone praised its "amazingly vivid songcraft". Passing up on a more slicker, polished sound, Price has been lauded for her commitment to the grit and honesty in her music.

TONY JOE WHITE

Tony Joe White's new blues-based album, Bad Mouthin', comes straight from the swamps with its blend of classics and five White originals, including two of the first songs he wrote just before penning his breakthrough hits 'Polk Salad Annie' and 'A Rainy Night In Georgia' in 1967. The Jody White produced album is a testament to the 75-year-old artist's versatility and deep southern roots.

COURTNEY MARIE ANDREWS

Courtney Marie Andrews played her first NZ show in July 2017 following the success of her album Honest Life. The crowd described Courtney's performance as "exquisite", and "utterly brilliant". Earlier this year, Courtney revealed May Your Kindness Remaina record dedicated to the people she met on the road. UK's Guardian gave the album 5 stars, describing it as "a brilliant record, proof that old forms can still be timeless."
