Andy Griggs

Andy Griggs often says his influences in music are like a pot of gumbo. Growing up in Monroe, LA, he was raised on Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggert, Waylon, Bill Monroe, hardcore blues, and hardcore rock’n roll, sprinkled with a touch of jazz. He often says, “there is no defining a style of song. As long as there’s soul, it has a place in music.” Andy moved to Nashville in 1995 after a childhood life of major mountains and valleys. Music was such a huge inspiration in his young life that it helped him grieve. And he did plenty of that. His father, the praise and worship leader at their church, died from a brain tumor when Andy was 11 years old. His brother Mason, his only sibling took the baton of music and ran with it. Throughout their teenage years, Mason was Andy’s hero. Mason died at the early age of 21 from heart complications that he had had since birth. Andy grabbed that same baton and he quotes, “when I jumped into the pool of music, I jumped into the deep end and never came out.”

After several years of playing in the blue grass band, ‘Jerry and Tammy Sullivan’ Andy found himself a record deal with RCA and exploded with his first single “You Won’t Ever Be Lonely.” After two #1’s, five top 5’s and 4 other top 10’s, Andy came to a musical crossroad in his life…there was something missing. Feeling that his music was only reaching 99% of his capability of releasing his heart and soul, his life was not complete. “My childhood was a roller coaster ride and so has been my profession as a singer. I’m at that point in my life, where I either want to make a difference with a song and a worn out guitar or I need to find something else to do. I’ve learned that you don’t come to this town and TRY to fit a certain mold. You don’t TRY to fit a certain style. You don’t TRY to sing your heart out. You either DO or you DON’T.” This awakening in Andy’s restless being caused him to start writing most of his songs and producing his own music. “Heck, I don’t know how to produce, I just know what I hear and feel. That’s what I want and that’s what I have to have.” As you listen, to the songs that come out of his voice now, you will realize that he is finally complete and one with his music. Ladies and gentleman, please make welcome to the stage the new, improved, and REAL Andy Griggs.

Blackjack Billy

Blackjack Billy

Blackjack Billy

Blackjack Billy is bonded together by music — specifically, by the no-holds-barred, good-time, party-down rockin’ country that is endearing them to fans internationally. The group first impacted in 2013, when they independently released their first single, “The Booze Cruise,” to digital media. With minimal promotion, the summertime anthem nonetheless won frequent rotation by SiriusXM’s “The Highway,” achieved Platinum certification in Canada, charted #1 in Australia, and became the hottest-selling iTunes song in America by any act without a label deal that year.

Fast-forward to 2017, and the band released a fun, upbeat new single titled “How to Get the Girl” featuring Canadian country act, Madeline Merlo. The single showcases the powerful vocals of both BJB lead vocalist Noll Billings and Merlo, while playfully breaking down the right way to ‘read the signs’ and win over a girl in up-tempo, high-energy Blackjack Billy style.

This Nashville-based group consists of Noll Billings (vocals), Ian Munsick (vocals, bass guitar), Jeff Coplan (electric guitar), and Brad Cummings (drums), and they came together serendipitously when one of the founding members, Rob Blackledge, decided to leave the band. What seemed at first like a problem turned quickly into an opportunity for both Blackjack Billy and young bass phenomenon Ian Munsick, whom Noll ‘stole’ after watching him perform with Chris Cavanaugh on a cruise.

Raised in Kennett, Missouri, (also home to Sheryl Crow, Trent Tomlinson and David Nail), Noll hightailed to Hawaii after high school and then to the Caribbean before hanging up his surfboard and settling in St. Louis. He built a local following through local club gigs and eventually left for Nashville to score a publishing deal with EMI and pursue bigger dreams. Jeff, meanwhile, began his journey in Montreal Canada, and then headed to New York City to learn the art of studio engineering, production and song writing. There he started making writing trips to Nashville and fell in love with country songwriting, which led to he and Robert Ellis Orrall putting together the group Love and Theft in hopes of creating a modern-day variation on the Eagles. Jeff then moved to Nashville, produced their first album, and wrote some of their material, including the No. 1 hit “Angel Eyes.”

Jeff met Noll through their mutual publisher, EMI, and the impact was immediate. “I had written with a lot of people over the years, and the first time I sat down to write with Noll we completely connected. I basically just wanted to write everything with him after that.” With that, Blackjack Billy was born. They bought a converted airport shuttle bus, booked some shows and hit the road.

Signed now to Reviver Records in Nashville, they are hard at work recording tracks for their label debut. Canadian fans can catch Blackjack Billy on the festival circuit this summer, at Bathurst Hospitality Days (NB), Boots & Hearts (ON), and Bear Claw Casino (Carlyle SK).

“We are you,” Noll explains. “We’re big-time country fans. We’re big-time rock and roll fans. We love music. We love mingling with and being part of the crowd. Usually when we’re done playing, we go find the coolest group of fans and go party with them. We’ll steal a golf cart and be out there in the crowd.”

The debut EP from Bone Feather Moon’s on Fire has landed. It’s been called “Deep Purple gone Dixie”. This five-track collection of songs is a powerful and gutsy debut effort from a band who’s equal parts young, hungry songwriters and seasoned, symbiotic performers. Chris Stapleton, Leroy Powell, and other prolific writers have penned songs the EP. Of Moon’s on Fire, lead singer Michael Shaun Brown says, “There is nothing that has ever been captured in our history to represent who we are more than what this body of work does. The raw, distinctive energy that was poured into every single track expresses how hard we work to be the very best that we can be. Bone Feather is officially here, and we are definitely here to stay.”

Bone Feather is a multifarious Southern rock ‘n’ roll outfit based in Nashville, TN. Hailing from all four corners of the country, the band was led to the smoky dives of Music City five years ago where they started playing consistently and forming their own unique sound. Bone Feather is already making a splash in Nashville and beyond, bridging the genres of Rock and Country seamlessly. With a catalog of brand new material under their belts, Bone Feather is now poised to reach beyond the honky tonk scene and bring their electrifying sound to the national and international arena.
