Jeremy Pinnell grew up in Northern Kentucky just south of the Ohio River, where the towns are equal parts Southern hospitality, Northern attitude, and Midwestern charm. As a kid he sang in church and learned how to play the guitar with his dad, and as he got older he figured out he wasn't just carrying a tune; he could really sing. When Jeremy sang, the room got quiet. Heads turned. at 18 he left home and began writing and singing country music. His voice made him a hometown hero but his demons kept him a secret to the world.

Upon first listening to Bonnie Montgomery, it’s easy to mistakenly assume that you’ve stumbled upon a long-buried track by a legend from the golden era of country/western music. Such is the artistry of this Arkansas native and silver-voiced songstress. Her story is of her journey, but she presents it through a folk/bluegrass/country perspective that’s traditional and timeless.
With "Forever", her second full-length album, Montgomery once again delves into classic country sounds and storytelling.
“It’s a concept album inspired by Willie Nelson’s Phases and Stages,” Montgomery says. “The songs are about life on the road, loss, and the mysticism of West Texas. We recorded it with love and magic in Austin, Texas, at Dale Watson’s Ameripolitan Studios."
Montgomery’s stunning vocal chops and ability to draw listeners in with her natural songwriting talent should come as no surprise: her musical roots run deep. Brought up among the never-ending sound of music that flowed through her family’s Arkansas music store, her childhood was heavily steeped in Ozark bluegrass, Texas swing, Delta blues, as well as gospel and rock and roll. Surrounded by talented musicians that ran the gamut from performers on the original Sun Records to bluegrass greats and opera singers, Montgomery expanded her musical horizons and began performing whenever possible.
Classically-trained and ready to bring her own distinct sound to the world, Montgomery released her first two EP’s (Cruel in 2011 followed by Joy in 2013) before debuting her first full-length, self-titled album in 2014. She traveled the U.S. and Europe on a tour for the album, sharing the stage with artists such as Gossip, Shovels and Rope, Robert Ellis, Hayes Carll, Billy Jo Shaver, Turnpike Troubadours, Pokey LaFarge, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, Joe Ely, Moot Davis, Mike and the Moonpies, Dale Watson, Chris Stapleton, Jason James, and Sturgill Simpson, among others.
2016 was a big year for Montgomery. It kicked off with her being named the Ameripolitan Outlaw Female of the Year. Springtime marked the premiere of her modern folk opera Billy Blythe (written about the childhood of Arkansas native Bill Clinton) by Opera Ithaca in New York. The show won the attention of critics at The New Yorker, The Economist, The Huffington Post, and the London Daily Telegraph.
With the release of "Forever", the journey continues. On the stage and up the highway, through love and despair, and from the Arkansas foothills to the vastness of West Texas: there’s no telling where Montgomery will take her listeners next.
Andrea Colburn and Mud Moseley sound like a panther screaming in the middle of the night, like a band of gypsies at a tea party, like a carefully curated hullabaloo held in a Wild West funeral home. Like Doc Watson and the Cramps had a love child.
Just as much influenced by Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, and Hank Williams Sr. as new Country acts such as Colter Wall and the Deslondes, Colburn & Moseley keep somewhat of a traditional country and blues feel all while giving it their own haunting, part Piedmont, part psychobilly spin. Part Flat Duo Jets, part Bonnie and Clyde, this is not a performance that you will want to miss.
Andrea Colburn was born and raised in NW Ohio. After a difficult move to St. Louis, MO at 13, Andrea turned to music and poetry. Highly inspired by Bobbie Gentry and Led Zeppelin, Andrea wanted to learn to play guitar, so her mother bought her one as a gift at 14 years old. She half-heartedly learned and played throughout high school, but didn't stick with music. After life led her to Georgia in 2012, and she was befriended by a large group of bikers and musicians and she met all the right people, she started writing songs and performing almost immediately.
They say Mud Moseley was born somewhere near Winder, GA but this information could never be confirmed. He was found in the woods one day with nothing but a guitar and a pair of overalls. After intensive etiquette classes/reform, Mud was still considered a threat to himself and others and was released back into the wild. Rather than going back to his feral life, he decided to bless the world with his music and moved to the big city. The rest, as they say, is history.
“…sounds as though it were made for an independent movie about bootlegging on humid afternoons in the Deep South.” and "This album manages to sound as sleazy and greazy as its title and some of the songs' murderous characters might suggest whilst at the same time sounding utterly fresh and innovative."
-Duncan Warwick (Country Music People UK) ★★★★★
“Andrea Colburn and Mud Moseley write music that bridges the space between old time country and contemporary issues. Andrea and Mud have a homegrown charm that's a little Johnny and June, and a little Sid and Nancy.”
