The Golden Cadillacs
The Golden Cadillacs
The Golden Cadillacs began their musical journey by forming a band back in their high school days in the foothills of Northern California. After exploring different roads musically their paths have led them back together to create a harmony that can only be founded from lifelong friendship. After releasing their resplendent EP "Indian Yellow" last year, they have crafted a new batch of compelling songs that will be released this summer. The band consists of past and present members of Jackie Greene, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, Dead Winter Carpenters, Jake Peavy and the Outsiders, Tim Flannery and the Lunatic Fringe and Merrygold.
Tim Flannery and Friends
Tim Flannery and Friends
He is one of the enduring hard men of professional sports, logging 34 of his 55 years with professional baseball. Of those years, he has spent a jaw-dropping 25 on the hallowed fields of the Major Leagues as both a hard-charging player and a steely-eyed field general. He has been to the World Series four times- once as a player and three times as a coach, finally wrapping his battered, dusty hands around the World Series Trophy in 2010...and yet again in 2012 and 2014. Impressive credentials for any man, but here's the thing- baseball is only a part of his story.

He is also a prolific and talented songwriter. That's right- this ferociously hard-working baseball legend is also an award-nominated musician who regularly packs venues across the globe. He is a seasoned fingerstyle legend of Americana music with a gift for crafting potent, resonant songs and delivering energetic, emotional live shows.

Albert Simpson
Albert Simpson, from Gadsden, Al., performs mostly solo with the acoustic guitar while utilizing percussion instruments. Simpson’s folksy back porch flavor makes his music feel like an old friend. After performing for over twenty years, this artist is now known as one of the best solo acts on the scene. His southern fried folk funk flavor is intoxicating! After recording with Johnny Sandlin, who produced great acts like The Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic, Johnny brought his expertise to “Don't Wake Albert”, which was Albert’s first studio project. The CD received raving reviews in publications such as: Vintage Guitar Magazine, Relix, and Hittin' the Note. It has even been said that it ranks as one of Johnny's best projects, and parallels his work on Widespread Panic's landmark second album.

Albert’s current CD, Roll Your Mind, features Albert playing every instrument. Not only did Albert play all the instruments and write the songs, he also helped produce the record with the help Mark Turnham from Xcessive Sound. This all original project has an underlying natural earth tone and is one of Albert’s most genuine recordings. Currently signed with 10 Ton Records, Albert is working on a new record with Jeremy Stephens at Clearwave Studios in The Muscle Shoals area.
