Scott: Ever since Steve Earle declared Miller a “world class” songwriter – signing him and his former band The V-Roys to his record label E-Squared and producing their two bedrock Americana albums JUST ADD ICE and ALL ABOUT TOWN with Twangtrust partner Ray Kennedy – Miller has been known as a writer’s writer. Even on the next four albums Miller recorded and releasedon Sugar Hill Records from 2001 to 2008, Miller’s songwriting remained genuinely thoughtful, for the most part regional and history based– but always cloaked in what one New York Times reviewer called an “epic vernacular.” In other words, he wrote big.

Sarah: Sarah Siskind’s music is not easily explained or contained. She’s a singer and songwriter based in Virginia and grounded in Appalachian roots, but one who transcends category with a beguiling fusion of the traditional and the modern. Whether solo, fronting an electric band or in her harmony-laden trio The Novel Tellers, Sarah creates emotionally charged soundscapes that consistently delight and surprise even her long-time fans.
Alison Krauss has championed Sarah and values her songs so highly that she’s recorded two of them, both of which became singles and videos that received widespread airplay. Boston folk icon Jennifer Kimball once dubbed her the perfect hybrid of Joni Mitchell and Gillian Welch. Steve Binder, the legendary LA based TV/Film Producer who has worked with Elvis Presley, Dianna Ross and Liza Minnelli calls Sarah “the best female singer-songwriter in America today.”

Trent: “An americana songmaster.” Purple Fiddle. Trent’s hybrid of old timey country and bluegrass sense with funky blues and rock roots makes for a slappin’ good time on the back porch of someone’s kid sister. As lead vocalist and primary songwriter, you can hear Trent’s unique vocal and lyrical stylings up and down the Mid-Atlantic Region with his band the Steel Wheels or some other company of misfits. He’s played on the same stage as Adrienne Young & Little Sadie, John McCutcheon, and Carrie Newcomer and others.
