  • Sharing experiences from a life well-lived in places as far ranging as Okinawa, Japan, and Padre Island, Texas, Daniel Boling, balladeer/songwriter with the friendly tenor, brings his well-crafted story songs to audiences coast-to-coast and in Europe in over one hundred shows a year, from house concerts to festivals (Kerrville, Winfield, Woody Guthrie and others). Born into a traveling Air Force family, he later worked as a National Park Ranger -- yes, the gun-toting kind -- and as a Criminal Investigator for the US Bureau of Land Management, and he started touring at 50, when most guys are planning their retirement. He’s got six albums, including the new Sleeping Dogs, produced by Jono Manson and released in September 2013 on Berkalin Records
  • “I’ve reconciled the fact that I’ll never live a simple life,” Annalise Emerick says plainly, “and that’s alright with me. This is the life I chose for myself.” For Annalise, it isn’t just a brush-off. The self-starting, twenty-something, singer-songwriter has been on the road virtually non-stop for three years solid. This summer alone, she plays to sold-out crowds at over 150 shows in 90 different cities with the aid of nothing but a guitar. Choosing to leave behind any semblance of a normal life for the day-to-day of a traveling independent musician, however, was always a no-brainer for the Nashville spitfire. “It’s all about building on something and getting out there in front of people,” she explains. “If you’re going to do it, then you have to really go for it.” And that’s precisely what she’s done.
