Matt Hutchison & The B...
From the very beginning, Matt has been inspired by a good song and story. When he was six years old, he fell for The Beatles so hard that he thought he was in fact Paul McCartney, even going so far as to put that name at the top of his school work. He later spent three of his formative years living in England soaking up the sounds of the early British Invasion and digging into the catalog of early Rock & Roll and Country Western music. Matt's grandfather, "Pappy", built a cabin on Cove Mountain in the George Washington National Forest of West Virginia. Originally intended as a hunting getaway, Matt now considers this place his songwriting home. The only thing he hunts for these days is a good melody and a whiskey buzz. With no running water or electricity, he goes back in time with old-time country radio and setting a rhythm to the rising and setting of the sun. His latest project “Three Minute Man,” is a reflection of a simpler songwriting approach in a collection of new songs that clock in around 3 minutes each. Breathing life into these songs is a band of old friends and fine musicians from Baltimore and surrounding locales. It is available now at www.matthutchison.org as well as any of your favorite digital retailers.

SUSAN GIBSON: The word “troubadour” is thrown around a lot these days, but music fans need look no further than Texas’ own Susan Gibson for an example of that word in action, or rather, in motion. Gibson never stops; she puts 60,000+ miles a year on her Sprinter van touring all over the country. From playing listening rooms and festivals to teaching songwriter classes and workshops, this award-winning singer/songwriter defines poetry in motion. Gibson is celebrating 10 years as a solo touring and recording artist with the release of “The Second Hand,” a live album recorded at The Bugle Boy in La Grange, one of the Texas’ most highly lauded listening rooms. On “The Second Hand,” the CMA award-winning songwriter (the Dixie Chicks took the Gibson-penned “Wide Open Spaces” to the top for four weeks) manages to capture a high energy show while also sharing a very personal, poignant side with her audience. <br><br> JANA POCHOP: Jana Pochop’s instinct for deep grooves and poignant lyrics are obvious on her most recent musical offering, Throats Are Quarries. Produced by Daniel Barrett (porterdavis, Rubicon Studio), Jana combines her gifts; lyrics that are as fearless as they are vulnerable, as skeptical as they are hopeful – woven into beautiful and fully fleshed arrangements. She has allied with many of the central Texas music makers like Terri Hendrix, Susan Gibson, Elizabeth Wills, and Drew Kennedy. Throats Are Quarries completes a trilogy of EPs crafted by Jana and Dan, and affirms that she’s got one foot firmly planted in the grassy-rootsy folk genre while the other stomps around the pop world like a boss. The album features Daniel Barrett on lots of instruments, Mark Hallman on drums (Carole King, Eliza Gilkyson), Eric Holden on bass (Shakira, Five For Fighting), and Susan Gibson on background vocals.

Bob Everhart, President of NTCMA for 42 years writes, “America is bombasted with the phony these days, but being a gambler for every CD I listen to, hoping for the real deal, the best one so far is "Aces and Eights" who are not only totally 'retro' they have all the elements that make that word reliable and honest.

Kimberly Bachman grew up in Iowa on a farm. She bought her first guitar with her money from working in the fields all summer. Kim was surrounded by country music. Family tradition entailed Saturday night gatherings around the kitchen table when relatives would come over to visit and play music. She is firmly rooted in the country music of the 60’s and 70’s with a strong alto voice that carries one back to the day of the women who were the true legends of country music. Kim also plays the banjo and the mandolin, sings lead and harmony. Over the past ten years, she has filled in with a number of small bands until she found her true country niche with Aces & Eights. She lives in Belle Fourche, South Dakota with her husband and family. If you are looking for artists that will bring the nostalgia of real country music to your venue, festival, or event you won’t need to look any further than Aces & Eights Classic Country Music. “Kim and Harlan were superb to work with. They were nothing but professional but still had a great time interacting with their audience. Their performance was well received by our guests. I would highly recommend Aces and Eights – their musical talent is awesome. “ Dee with the Buffalo Round Up in Custer, SD. “I was in total agreement that getting back to basics in Classic Country Music was the goal of their Album "No Fluff Added." The rest of the board for the South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame was just as excited about the album as I was. We were honored to select their CD as Album of the Year. They were very "down home"; a first Class Act that everyone should get out and listen to.” Wini with the South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame.
