I just released a brand new batch of music. It’s a 6 song EP called “Any Minute Now” and it features a live string section and songs co-written with the #1 songwriters and Grammy winners behind songs by Alison Krauss, Hunter Hayes, Keith Urban. In some ways it feels like I just woke up and while I was sleeping I changed the cat box, recorded 5 albums, and played more than a thousand shows. This time around, It was important to me that the album be an appropriate representation of my music for folks at solo shows and band shows. I’m lucky to have friends who are insanely talented and practiced musicians who are sensitive to my vision. Trey Pollard and I produced this album together at Songwire Studios in Richmond VA. He along with Curtis Fye, Wells Hanley, and Erika Sato really performed magnificently. Did I say magnificently? Because I meant to say MAGNIFICENTLY! I trusted them with these songs and the results are my best work yet. I can’t wait for you to hear it. And I...

A singer/songwriter originally from the New England area, now based out of Virginia, Dave has always had a love of music.  After spending time in his early years exploring different instruments it wasn’t until his mid thirties that he finally decided to learn to play guitar.  He quickly mastered some of the basic chords and learned several of his favorite Jimmy Buffett songs, and from there he was off and running.  He would spend every spare minute he had practicing and learning new skills, and admits that performing live and writing his own music was what he wanted to do.  In 2007 that dream began to come true, when he started performing live at a few local venues in and around Richmond, and remembers his very first paying gig was out on the patio at a popular pizza place.  Since then he has performed as far north in New England and as far south as Key West, and averages over 150 performances yearly.  He has also been busy writing original music and has been able to...

“Singing guitarists Dustin and Ian Meadows prove that roots music is an unending resource, turning early influences gleaned from the Band and Gillian Welch into an engagingly twangy sibling sound all their own. ”     –  BOSTON GLOBE​ The New England based American roots duo, The Meadows Brothers, are best known for their close sibling harmonies, melodious, unsweetened songwriting and expressive musicality. The brothers infuse each carefully crafted song with an old soul sensibility, however spryly delivered. “Vocal harmonies that will melt your heart into mush, guitar runs that will set your hair on fire…” and supple blues-tinged harp playing make for a satisfying, meaty musical encounter. Check them out for yourselves here: with “Won’t Be...

Mink’s Miracle Medicine is a twang-inspired Americana group out of West Virginia, featuring the songwriting duo of Melissa E. Wright and Danny Zezeski. Driven by a deep-seated passion for creating music, and fueled by the knowledge that the song is king, neither can imagine a life without writing music. The songs themselves become necessary to write. Like a symbiotic process of sharing those thoughts and ideas that cannot be expressed verbally, chasing them around for a while out on the road, letting them fly in different cities, different states of mind, and the catharsis of those moments when it all makes landfall. They played their first show to a packed house in a comic book shop in Philadelphia. It was the first time either of them had played to an audience that was fully engaged with the music and not just a drinking crowd in some bar – a realization that provided the impetus to take it further. Since then, they have gone on to play all over the United States, further...
