SUZIE BROWN: A 1970s-inspired folk-pop songwriter, Suzie Brown has chased her unique muse for a decade, making modern-day roots music that nods to the soul singers, heartland rockers, and blues artists who came before her. Gluing the sound together is the unforced voice and honest, autobiographical songwriting of a Renaissance woman who’s not only an acclaimed musician, but also a part-time cardiologist and full-time mother.
SCOT SAX: Scot Sax’s multifaceted career started with a bang when his song “I Walked” became a radio hit with his band Wanderlust (RCA) in ’95. It was the No. 1 most requested song on rock stations across the country. That year ended with Wanderlust opening for The Who. After signing a publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music in Los Angeles, Sax went on to write and perform “I Am The Summertime” for the film American Pie (awarded a Gold Record) and form indie-darlings FEEL (Curb Records). In 2005, he was a co-writer of the Grammy-winning Faith Hill/Tim McGraw duet “Like We Never Loved At All.” Upon hearing Sax’s song “What Gets In The Way,” Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, and T-Bone Burnett asked him and singer Sharon Little to be their opening act for their Raising Sand Tour in 2007. Sax worked with Don Was in 2009 on Little’s second album. From there, Sax went on to dive into another passion of his: film. He released the documentary Platinum Rush, starring Lisa Loeb and Oliver Wood, created videos for Lucinda Williams’ Car Wheels On A Gravel Road 20th Anniversary Tour, and directed award-winning films Playback Is A Bitch and This Is Major, all the while continuing to release new music. Since 2023, Scot’s comedy and music TV show “JoinWithVideo” has been seen on CBS in Nashville and has become an East Nashville staple.
MOON BRIDE: Folk-pop artist Carly Taich writes about doubt, faith, fear, and love in a way that isn’t off putting or boring. Her lyrics, framed by swooning violins and catchy, unusual melodies, take us to another era, or dimension, where honesty reigns and forgiveness is free. Carly recently reinvented her musical project as Moon Bride.
