As Elliot Root began recording their first full-length album, Conjure (out Aug. 25 on E.R. Recordings/Thirty Tigers), the Nashville foursome had the rare opportunity to figure out exactly what kind of band they wanted to be. Their answer: an honest one.

“Instead of trying to create something that we thought was middle-of-the-road, or commercial, or whatever, I think we first and foremost wanted to be 100 percent honest with ourselves,” says singer and guitarist Scott Krueger. Elliot Root also features Melissa Mattey (keyboards, drum programming), Sean Truskowski (drums) and Todd Bond (guitars).

Conjure follows a pair of EPs released in 2015, which helped the band find its feet. Working on their first LP in 2016 was a deeper, more involved experience that found the musicians pushing boundaries in a new way. “We were really allowing ourselves the freedom to pretty much just try anything that felt good or natural and not really direct it toward one certain vibe or one certain theme,” Krueger says.

The result is songs like “10,000,” an introspective, atmospheric song that contrasts bright piano with soaring guitars; or “Take Your Money,” which pits gruff guitar against Krueger’s assured vocals as he delivers a message of contempt. “Wicked Lies” has an enveloping R&B flavor, while “Dissipate” is full of synthesizers as Krueger contrasts a vision of decay with underlying optimism.
“We were able push ourselves in a way that felt so natural,” Krueger says. “When you first do something that feels foreign, you eventually realize that if it’s an honest expression, then it’s not really foreign at all. You’ve just uncovered another layer of something that’s been waiting for you to express outwardly.”
Southern Komfort Brass Band
Southern Komfort Brass Band
Founded in 2010, the Jackson (MS)-based Southern Komfort Brass Band brought together 7 musicians who quickly discovered their niche - New Orleans-style street jazz with a unique Mississippi twist.  Countless thousands have traveled to New Orleans to hear the likes of Dirty Dozen, Rebirth, Soul Rebels, Hot 8 and Lil' Rascals Brass Bands.  This jazz cover band figured, why not enjoy this exiting style of music in Mississippi?  And the party has been going on ever since!
Southern Komfort Brass Band presents a live show that focuses on traditional Brass Band standards, originals by the aforementioned groups, and Southern Komfort originals as well as special arrangements of popular blues, jazz and R&B tunes.  This party band has expanded their line-up to include up to 9 musicians. Their act is fast, fun and never fails to get their audiences singing, dancing and occasionally forming second-lines.  Their awards and special recognitions include:
· Best Of Jackson Winner for Best Original Band 2013, 2014 and 2015 (Jackson Free Press)
· Best Of Jackson Winner for Best Cover Band 2013, 2014 and 2015 (Jackson Free Press)

Stoop Kids
Stoop Kids
New Orleans-born quintet, Stoop Kids, has created a psychedelic conglomeration of genres that both honors and reinvents the classic sounds of hip-hop, doo wop, jazz, and surf-rock. The five-piece band is fronted by Griffin Dean, whose many hats include lead vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, and rapper. Rounding out the rest of the band are Thomas Eisenhood on baritone saxophone and harmonies, Sam Fruend on bass and harmonies, David Paternostro on guitar and keys, and Joe Tontillo on drums.


With over 300 shows booked from Texas to the Atlantic over the past five years, Stoop Kids’ impressive touring résumé includes supporting slots for Galactic, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Naughty Professor, and Stop Light Observations, as well as performances at Bayou Boogaloo and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Atwood Magazine praises their “comedically barbaric live performances,” which are unpredictable and theatrical to say the least. Their music is generational; they incorporate timeless sensibilities with accessibly catchy melodies and have developed what Pigeons & Planes describes as “a love letter to both doo wop and classic hip-hop.” Since the band’s inception, they have independently released two full-length albums and their most recent mixtape of genre-bending singles.
Greater Pyrenees
Greater Pyrenees
Sean Kirkpatrick talks a lot about identity. For Kirkpatrick, who spent the better part of a decade as a guitarist in Colour Revolt before the group disbanded in 2012, that identity was squarely one thing. But along the way—as he became a husband, then a father—these roles began to expand and intersect. Now with Greater Pyrenees, he’s out to write a new future for himself, one that’s excitedly undefined and begging for exploration.

Recorded from August to November 2014, the songs on Greater Pyrenees certainly mark a shift from the sound Kirkpatrick contributed to in Colour Revolt. An army of acoustic guitars gives things a bit more subtlety here, but the set is nonetheless undercut with Kirkpatrick’s urgent passion, from the haunting harmonies of “Categorize” to the driving, hooky “Homemade Blood.”

These are solely Kirkpatrick’s songs, written with his voice and his interests in mind—songs from a three-year period that are innately tied to his new identity as a more experienced and wiser songwriter.

“For a while, it felt like everything was blurred,” Kirkpatrick says. “Going back and writing these songs, it was almost like finding myself again.”
Young Valley
Young Valley
Ideas had grown cold about forming a "back-up country" band for frontman, Zach Lovett. "Z" had become a household name in the Mississippi singer-songwriter conversations and was wanting to explore some new options and considered the idea of having a band to accompany his songs. With the frazzling out of their ensemble based Mississippi Delta folk-grass band, Dandy & the Lions, - Zach, Spencer Thomas, and Carson Braymer were caught in a similar situation. After finding their way back to Jackson, the 3 piece finally rounded out their sound with the homecoming of guitar player and Zach's brother, Dylan - who was living in Texas. With him, came newest addition Chris Hassler after Braymer's departure. What started out as playing Zach originals or his collaborations with Spencer, fused into a swapping and sharing of songs and creativity that, combined with their influences and sense of home, and their natural alt-country sound (with a lot of weird nights, thoughtful minds, and Budweiser) - Young Valley was formed.



Since then, they try and stay on the road or spend time in the studio and they have had some good times with some real good people - having shared the stage with Lucero, The Weeks, The Mulligan Brothers, Water Liars, Alanna Royale, Futurebirds, Phosphorescent, and Adam Faucett.
Songwriter Showcase
All will share the stage "round robin" style, featuring Cody Cox, Patrick McClary, McKenzie Lockhart, and Schaefer Llana
