Best known for his roles on Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains. While his vast and bizarre catalog of songs about aliens, religion, and failed relationships has yielded cult hits, such as "Salame", "Father & Son" and "Puberty", his new 3-piece backing band, lead by indie rock singer/songwriter Mo Troper, propels Liebe Hart into previously unexplored territory.
Throughout the past decade Liebe Hart has garnered a substantial and dedicated fanbase, not only from his TV and film appearances but from his stints on the road performing music all across the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia. His followers are supportive and loyal, won over by David's sincerity and endearing idiosyncrasies, as well his engaging stage shows.
Mo Troper is a Portland, Oregon-based singer/songwriter who has released several critically acclaimed "power pop" albums, has toured extensively with his backing band, and co-owns indie label Good Cheer Records.
Together, Liebe Hart and Troper put on a show guaranteed to please old fans and new ones alike. The band performs old favorites and new songs along with puppets, projected video accompaniment, and David's oddly endearing stories of past relationships and paranormal encounters.

THE WORLD'S GREATEST HONKY TONK SHOW U.S. TOUR 2018 The Eskimo Brothers have become known one of Nashville's can't miss live shows. The honky tonk trio has honed their stage show and sound from nearly 300 shows per year and thousands of gig hours in the Music City honky tonks over the past 5 years. When not playing their usual residencies in Nashville and Memphis, the band tours throughout the United States. The band's signature raw and rowdy sound appeals to a wide audience, and much of it can be attributed to their own vast influences. Every Eskimo Brothers song has a qualities that are essential to a Country melody and content, but played with the attitude that draws a Rock fan to a genre that they would usually not listen to. The first and foremost obligation of the Eskimo Brothers since the band's first formation was to make sure every listener and show attendee has a good time through music. Second was sticking to a honest and raucous roots musical formula. Their wide range of influences in the Classic Country and Rock N' Roll music has given the band a driving tempo with blue collar stories of the road and heartache. The Eskimo Brothers have finished recording their latest album "Hands & Knees" at Awake Studios in Nashville, TN and are touring in promotion of the release. The album has been released on CD and digitally in August 2017. In the band's latest effort, they have dabbled with a wide range of styles of American roots music to give the listener a ride through a true honky tonk experience by way of their headphones, car stereo, or any pole barn in the world. The Eskimo Brothers features David Graham ({Portland, OR) on guitar and vocals, Bill Van Vleet (Knoxville, TN) on drums, and Mark Robertson (Los Angeles, CA) on bass and vocals

Shemekia Copeland never holds back. Her instantly recognizable voice--capable of being sultry, assertive and roaring--delivers every song with unparalleled honesty and passion. Her wide-open vision of contemporary Americana roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with an up-to-the-minute musical and lyrical approach. With her new Alligator Records album, America's Child, Copeland confidently announces an electrifying new chapter in her constantly evolving story. Produced by Americana Instrumentalist Of The Year winner Will Kimbrough (who also plays guitar on the album) and recorded in Nashville, America's Child is a courageous and fiery statement of purpose, a major step forward for the singer whose musical consciousness continues to expand as her star continues to rise. America's Child is by far Copeland's most compelling work yet, with music swelling beyond blues and into spirited Americana, with elements of rock, soul, and country. From America's Child's anthemic opening track, Ain't Got Time For Hate, to the closing lullaby, the traditional Go To Sleepy Little Baby, Shemekia sings with passion and insight about the chaos and uncertainty in the world while still finding joy all around her. With guests including John Prine, Rhiannon Giddens, Mary Gauthier, Emmylou Harris, Steve Cropper, J.D. Wilkes, Al Perkins and members of the Time Jumpers, America's Child bursts with Copeland's bravado and embraces with her tenderness.  Gauthier and songwriter/executive producer John Hahn wrote two striking songs for the project. Smoked Ham And Peaches is a search for truth and tranquility in America, featuring Giddens on African banjo. Americans celebrates our collective diversity in all its forms and colors. American music legend Prine joins Shemekia for a stirring duet on his own Great Rain. Guitar great Cropper adds his scorching playing to the ballad Promised Myself,written by Shemekia's father, the late bluesman Johnny Clyde Copeland. And her version of I'm Not Like Everybody Else transforms the Kinks song into a blues-fueled declaration of independence. Upon the birth of her son Johnny Lee Copeland in 2017, Shemekia, with fresh eyes, began to take an even deeper look at the state of the world. Of the new album, she says, "After having a child, I started thinking about the world I brought him into, how it actually is and how I wished it was and all the things he will have to go through. And to live in this world today, you have to have a strong foundation like I did to make it through. So that's what 'America's child' means to me. I'm truly grateful to all the artists that joined me on this record--it wasn't about the genre for anyone, it was about the music and mutual love and respect."When Shemekia broke on the scene at age 18 in 1998 with her groundbreaking Alligator Records debut CD Turn The Heat Up, she instantly became a blues and R&B force to be reckoned with. News outlets from The New York Times to CNN praised Copeland's talent, larger-than-life personality, and true star power. With each subsequent release, Copeland's music has continued to grow.

Rapper Scarface was born Bradley Jordan on November 9, 1970. He is originally from the South Acres neighborhood of Houston, Texas. He was an early member of the Southern rap group The Geto Boys and still maintains ties with them, though he has been a solo artist since 1991. Even if he has never scored any national hits or stormed up the Billboard charts with any of his numerous albums throughout the '90s, no one could question his clout throughout the South. He has managed to define what it meant to be a Southern thug rapper years before anyone even coined the term Dirty South. This became glaringly evident in the late '90s when a massive wave of young MCs arose from Houston, New Orleans, and Memphis emulating his style of hard-boiled, ghetto-bred, straight-up hardcore rapping.

Scarface (at the time recording under the alias of Akshen) began his rap career first as a solo artist in his native Houston during the mid-'80s for James Smith's then fledging Rap-a-Lot label. Smith was trying to launch a group he tagged the Geto Boys, and he eventually asked Akshen to join the group in the late '80s. Smith was trying to launch a group he tagged the Geto Boys, and he eventually asked Akshen to join the group in the late '80s. The Geto Boys' debut album -- Grip It! On That Other Level (1990), later repackaged and re-released that same year simply as The Geto Boys -- shocked many with its vivid depictions of violence and its overall extreme nature. This album featured the song "Scarface," which introduced Akshen's alter ego, a title he would keep from that point onward. He changed his name to Scarface, after the legendary film Scarface, saying he felt that the main character of the movie was like himself in many ways. He even changed his flow from a rapid-fire Kool G Rap-like delivery, to a more normal type flow, but this time with a darker tone. The huge controversy surrounding the group's debut put the Geto Boys on the map and set the stage for the impressive We Can't Be Stopped (1991). In the wake of the group's national success came solo albums, one of which being Scarface's debut album.

 

e has since done collaborations with such artists as Jay-Z, Master P, Jadakiss, Faith Evans, Chamillionaire, 2Pac, Nas, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Lloyd Banks, Beanie Sigel, Young Jeezy, Too Short, Bun B, Raekwon and Gang Starr. He also featured on "The Biggie Duets" alongside Big Gee and Akon. He guest-appeared on Ray Cash's debut single "Bumpin' my Music".

 Rap A Lot Records have also since released an album from Scarface and Tupac entitled 2Face which is due out on August 8th 2006, but was halted for a Tuesday September 26, 2006 Release. The album is co-produced by Suge Knight, but Scarface has been rumored as stating he wants nothing to do with the album.

 In a recent interview, Scarface says he'll never record solo material again. He has stated that his last official album according to him was The Fix which was released in 2001. Scarface is now planning on concentrating on the production side of rap music, and has been tapped to produce on the upcoming UGK album titled "Return of the Trill". More Recently Scarface converted to Islam.

"Inspired by the fearless truth-telling of Nina Simone, and projecting the ethereal aura of early Erykah Badu," according to billboard.com; Jah9 has become a femiNINE icon of a movement based on universal consciousness. Deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry and dub of Jamaican roots reggae. Her philosophy- profoundly spiritual, and her style - "Jazz on Dub".

Born Janine Cunningham, Jah9 spent her first 9 years in Falmouth, Trelawny, on the rural western edge of Jamaica before moving into the city of Kingston, where she ventured inward and found an outlet for her feelings in the words that she wrote... Jah9 became a staple on Jamaica's underground poetry scene by 2009. The empty spaces of instrumental dub allowed a young Jah9 to find her voice, and her demos caught the attention of the legendary singer Beres Hammond as well as popular producer Don Corleon; meanwhile the passion in her live performance and her love for live music caught the attention of her peers and assisted in jump starting what is known to the world as the 'reggae revival' Jah9 has gone on to successfully release two albums; 'New Name' (2013) & '9' (2016). Her debut album, 'New Name' produced by pioneer selector Rory 'Stone Love', was voted album of the year by AchisReggae.com and brought forth the playful hit, 'Avocado'. In that same year Jah9 released the single "Steamers A Bubble" which has become an anthem for herb users worldwide. '9' album represents Jah9's shifts in energies to unveil a deeper more personal development of her 'Jazz on Dub' sound. The album was voted #2 Reggae Album of the Year by billboard.com.

Described as "black magic," Jah9 and her dub inspired band, The Dub Treatment, is a staple on European and American reggae and world music festivals having performed at Boomtown (UK), Roskilde Fest (DE), Paleo Fest (CH), Rototom (ES), Caliroots (US) among many others. A certified yoga instructor trained in Kemetic, Ashtanga and Iyengar methods, Jah9 has been known to compel her audiences during her live set to pause, breathe deeply and feel empowered. Intimately engaging with her fan base, Jah9 also curates an organic music-based yoga experience she calls 'Yoga on Dub'. Jah9 is rooted in her African heritage and driven to serve. In 2015, while on tour in Italy and Malta she was intent on engaging with African refugees, sharing with them insight on the new environment they would face, natural wellness as well as yoga/breathing as healing therapy. Jah9 is currently working in studio with legendary producer Clive Hunt on her follow-up to 2016's '9' album. So far two singles have been released; "Love Has Found I" and " Feel Good". They will be both be featured on an exclusive vinyl EP dubbed "Feelings" to be released in the summer of 2018.
