Nick Shoulders and the Okay Crawdad
Here to put the "Try" in Country
Wielding an ethereal croon and masterful whistle crafted from a lifetime chasing lizards through the Ozark hills, Nick Shoulders is a living link to roots of country music with a penchant for the absurd Combining his family's deep ties to regional traditional singing with his years of playing to crowded street corners, Nick has sought to forge a hybridized form of raucously clever country music; born of forgotten rocky hollers and bred to confront the tensions of the 21st century South. As evidenced by his surreal album art and anachronistic songwriting, Nick's creative output is steeped in the complicated history of his beloved home of rural Arkansas, but crafted as a conscious rebuke of country music's blind allegiance to historical seats of power and repression. With a kind word and a mean yodel, Nick hopes to put the 'Try' in country.
Hannah Juanita left her home state of Tennessee in her early twenties to ramble the world, trying new things and gathering stories. Eventually, at 30, she found herself living in a Hostess step-van-turned- cabin on the side of a mountain in Washington state, in a relationship that had her feeling lonelier than actually being alone. So she packed up her things, namely her dog Loretta and a guitar, and got the hell out of dodge. She landed in Nashville and started writing and performing songs about her worldly life experiences. She's done her fair share of touring, and she is now a staple live performer at traditional country joints and honky tonks around Music City. Hannah Juanita's debut record, Hardliner, established a strong honky tonk sound, while her two latest singles show a softer side and give a taste of the genre progressing style Juanita is developing, as noted by Grammy.com [https://www.grammy.com/news/rising-women-country-music-miko-marks-summer-dean-local-honeys-hannah-juanita-jaime-wyatt], naming her one of the five females creating the future of country music.
