Don Gallardo
Don Gallardo
Don Gallardo has called Nashville home for almost 9 years, but his California roots shine through on current LP, Hickory, where Gallardo weaves his 1970’s Laurel Canyon influences into modern roots-Americana. The Telegraph calls Hickory, released in the UK by Clubhouse Records, “One of the Best Country Music Albums of 2015” along with Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Patty Griffin, Justin Townes Earle, & more. MOJO Magazine gave Hickory “4 Stars” and in 2016 Rolling Stone calls Gallardo “A singer-songwriter that is one of the Country and Americana scene's true journeymen.”

Gallardo’s work has been prominently featured in films "Jolene" and Jackass Presents "Bad Grandpa" as well as highly popular television series, "The Vampire Diaries" and ABC's "Nashville.”
Christian Lopez
Christian Lopez
Hailing from Martinsburg, West Virginia, Christian Lopez isn’t your average small town singer-songwriter. His single “Will I See You Again” has garnished over a million views on Spotify. He’s been featured in Rolling Stone multiple times, including when they named him “Best Newcomer” at the Americana Music Festival and Conference in 2015 and most recently, as “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” in July 2017. He’s played piano for 17 years, guitar for 16, and has been touring around the country for the last six. And while that doesn’t seem so long ago for most, it was almost a quarter of a life ago for the 22 year old.

But even more impressive than his accolades is his pioneering sound, which has been described as ‘alt-folk-country-rock’, and everything in between. His first musical influences were classic rock icons like AC/DC and Pink Floyd, but as he matured, he became inspired by a wider range of artists —from the Avett Brothers to outlaw country. “When my dad brought me those Essential compilation albums from Willie, Waylon, Johnny, and Kris, I started to realize that meaning and message could matter in music.”

His first EP, Pilot, was released in 2014 and was quickly followed by his first full-length album, Onward, just a year later. It was that album, made with the help of Grammy award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson), that Lopez won over fans with his uniquely-crafted sound and unmatched vocal clarity. However, for his most recent endeavor, Red Arrow, Lopez explored new paths with multi-talented producer Marshall Altman (Natasha Bedingfield, Matt Nathanson, Kate Voegele). The record, released September 22, 2017, via Blaster Records, features guitar accompaniment from Vince Gill and perfectly-synchronized harmonies with Kenneth Pattengale of Milk Carton Kids. And while his lyrics are more mature and his sound is more refined, Red Arrow has the catchy, universally relatable personality that most musicians spend their entire lives trying to obtain. Not only will it get stuck in your head, it’ll capture your heart — which is perhaps Christian Lopez’s greatest feat yet.
