Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by BTO and The Guess Whos Randy Bachman (American Woman / Taking Care of Business) at the age of 13. The multi-instrumentalist was soon touring alongside the likes of Luke Bryan, Buddy Guy, The Band Perry and Keith Urban as well as wowing audiences as Carrie Underwoods guitar player live on the 50th Annual CMA Awards and holding her own alongside icon Melissa Etheridge on Skyville Live. Ells highly anticipated debut EP, Worth The Wait (produced by Kristian Bush of Sugarland), debuted at No. 8 on the Nielsen Soundscan Country Albums Chart.

CMW Presents New Country - US

New Country Night (UK) Thanks in part to C2C, the UK country scene is now thriving, with local acts achieving Top 10 albums and winning praise in the USA and beyond. Our all-UK night introduces a line up of three acts that have arrived at country music through distinctly different routes. All have been influenced by the stars of the genre and inspired by the successful UK acts. Following productive time song-writing in Nashville all acts on the bill will be performing original material. Andy Brown Fresh from selling over 1 million records with Lawson, singer songwriter Andy Brown is now working on a long awaited solo album. Signed to Decca Records, Andy has been recording for the past 6 months in Nashville crafting an album with strong country influence as well as the traditional pop/rock sound that made Lawson so successful. Andy aims to draw the listener in with heart felt lyrics and huge sing along choruses. He takes inspiration from artists like Thomas Rhett, Sam Hunt, Chris Stapleton as well as John Mayer and James Bay. Twinnie Alongside of her successful acting career, Twinnie has been pursuing her other love country music. Her debut single, Cool, and follow-up EP were both released last year and reached No.2 in the iTunes Country Chart. Since performing at C2C London in March Twinnie has focused her year on writing new songs and working on her debut album with songwriters in LA and Nashville. Katy Hurt has lived a whole lot of country for an artist who\'s yet to hit 20. American culture is stamped on her singer-songwriter soul, from a childhood partly spent living there with her family. Hurt\'s confident, distinctive EP Pieces Of Me is the latest evidence of a career that\'s already produced an iTunes UK Country No. 1 in last year\'s \'Love You More,\' among other successes. Next will come a debut album, fuelled by her already considerable experience as a songwriter on both sides of the Atlantic, and as a vivacious and magnetic performer.

CMW Presents New Country US

Duos, trios and solo artists all new fresh faces of Country Music CMW is all about discovering new acts we are thrilled these artists are wanting to meet their UK fans early on and that we are able to showcase them on one terrific line up. Dont miss your chance at seeing who we think will be big names of country in the future. Logan Brill - Returning to the UK after impressing audiences at C2C earlier this year, Logan continues to define herself as one of the most important young artists in Nashville today. With a stunning voice that goes toe to toe with country musics finest, the young Knoxville native opts for grit and authenticity over pristine pop in her song choices, drawing comparisons to Bonnie Raitt, Brandi Carlile, and Mary Chapin Carpenter from US press. Logan has appeared on sold-out bills with iconic artists like Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, & Leon Russell as well as contemporary mega-stars like Gary Allan, Lee Brice, & The Band Perry. Temecula Road - Following up their fantastic UK debut at C2C this year this rising country music trio, comprises sisters Emma (vocals/mandolin) and Maddie (vocals) Salute together with guitarist and long-time friend Dawson Anderson (vocals/guitar). They have already amassed a sizeable and loyal fan base thanks to their immaculate harmonies and infectious, youthful energy. With talent far beyond their teenage years, Temecula Road has an impressive online following with their series of song covers. A recent mashup video of the trio singing portions of 2016s top 20 country songs in a mere 3 minutes garnered them over 7 million views online and 84,000 shares on Facebook. Levi Hummon - Performing in the UK for the first time Levi Hummon came on our radar after he released his first self-titled EP in 2016 with the Big Machine Label Group, co-writing four of the EPs five songs, including Guts and Glory. He has collaborated with rock legend Steven Tyler, co-writing his international No. 1 song, Red, White and You. Levi released his current single, Dont Waste The Night, via Iconic Records and has been featured on Rolling Stone Countrys Artists You Need to Know. Walker McGuire - Making their first appearance in the UK for CMW, Jordan Walker and Johnny McGuire take an opposites-attract approach to their music, fusing electrifying brotherly harmonies with a fresh new take on modern country. They met just days after moving to Nashville Jordan, the super country guy, raised in Texas with a love for classics like Keith Whitley and Dan Seals; Johnny, the quintessential rootsy guy, a Kansas City native schooled by left-of-centre icons like Tom Petty and John Prine. It was a yin-and-yang musical connection that fitted together like puzzle pieces and the duo Walker McGuire was born.

Drake White & The Big Fire Live At The Borderline

C2C presents Country Music Week Drake White and The Big Fire live at the Borderline Every reaction begins with a catalyst, some initial event that sets things on their inexorable course. For Drake White, it goes back to something raw and elemental in his debut album Spark."I learned how to play guitar and keep people\'s attention around a fire," explains the Hokes Bluff, Alabama native. "A spark can start a fire that can keep you alive and sustain you. So this is the beginning for me. This is the first strike of the flint."The spirit of Spark comes from those simple, early days spent enjoying the outdoors among friends in the warm glow of a fire. And though he\'s now a city dweller with all the complications and distractions that entails, White still seeks the freedom and deeper connections he felt when the chorus of nature and the strums of his guitar blended into one harmonious song the kind of contentment he sings about in the swirling majesty of his single "Livin\' the Dream.""We grew up free. We grew up on 4-wheelers, riding through the backwoods," he says. "We grew up hunting and fishing and being out in the Appalachian Mountains. People don\'t understand how beautiful north Alabama is until you see it in person."Save for "Livin\' the Dream," White wrote or co-wrote the remaining 11 tracks on Spark, working with red-hot producers Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover through the process. He also brought in his own band for a handful of tracks to capture the energy of his live shows. The first sound on Spark before the pulse-quickening "Heartbeat" kicks into gear is the voice of White\'s late grandfather speaking from the pulpit. Several of these ghostly transmissions from the past appear on Spark, all extolling the virtues of love, brotherhood and nature. It\'s a touch of the surreal that nods at White\'s fondness for Pink Floyd\'s psychedelic masterpiece The Wall, but also a deeply personal gesture that matches his vision perfectly."I went through about five or six sermons of my grandfather and picked out certain little snippets," he says. "I just think they kind of fit. They\'re weird and people are asking what they are. And that was my point: to get people talking about it."White has his own message of finding some harmony amid the demands of modern life, one that goes down easy in the uplifting, Zac Brown Band-assisted Southern rock anthem "Back to Free" and the cautionary-but-soulful "I Need Real." It\'s a simple message of not letting oneself be swallowed up by technology and seeking out honest, genuine connections with others."When I\'m at home, my wife and I keep our phones in the bedroom," says White. "We listen to records. We hardly turn the TV on, unless it\'s time for Game of Thrones. Before social networking was a smartphone app, we did it around a fire. That goes way back."With his gospel-derived, passionate delivery, White seems to have inherited his grandfather\'s ability to touch crowds with a sermon his divine vocal improvisations at the end of the honky-tonk flavored "Story" will undoubtedly get butts out of seats. White stresses that he isn\'t a preacher, but doesn\'t see a problem with putting his own methods for surviving the world out there. "Some of the best songs, like Buffalo Springfield\'s "For What It\'s Worth" or anything by Bob Marley, have a little bit of preachin\'," he says. "I never want to come across too preachy, but instead I\'m saying, \'Hey man, this is my life, and this is what I do to be happy and I\'m figuring it out just like you.\'"Spark covers an entire spectrum of emotions beyond these statements of character and self-definition. In "Making Me Look Good Again," White cruises on an R&B-style groove to express his gratitude for his better Drake White | SPARK | August 19 half, while "Waiting on the Whiskey to Work" finds him embodying a man spun out on love and heartbreak. Then in the tropically-themed "Equator," he flies south to give his nomadic side a little time to play."This record is about balance. It\'s me asking, where\'s that boy I used to be? Oh yeah, we gotta go get him back," he says. "We gotta go on a hike or camping or grab my wife and go to some foreign country. I gotta feel alive. I gotta go out there and do that."Long a respected live entertainer with his (appropriately named) band the Big Fire, White\'s climb to the limelight hasn\'t been a straight or uncomplicated one. Rather than blowing up right away with a big debut single, he\'s toiled on the road for years, giving jaw-dropping performances night after night and making believers one show at a time."There are many different paths. And mine was just in a van with a trailer," he says. "I wanted to have a group of guys that went out and did it the hard way and learned from people like Zac Brown and Eric Church, and these guys that did years of hard touring. There were definitely times where I was like, screw this. But now that I look back it\'s a perfectly fitted puzzle piece. It gave me everything I desired."In the album\'s "Elvis," White touches on the way hard work plays into the business of making dreams come true. "Rome wasn\'t built in a day and Elvis wasn\'t born the king," he sings, acknowledging the long incubation period he\'s had in the buildup to this moment. "I\'m gonna be an artist \'til the day I die," he says. "Don\'t matter if I make money at it or I don\'t. that\'s the blessing and the curse. I do this because this is what I am supposed to do. And I feel happy when I\'m writing, when I\'m helping people and when I\'m out there singing and performing."And all the while, he\'ll be stoking that original fire until it\'s a roaring blaze.

Jace Everett Live At The Borderline

C2C Present Country Music Week: Jace Everett live at the Borderline. Dust and Dirt is his new album which crosses styles and genres not just from song to song, but as a whole, distilling the craft of Nashville song writing, charging it with the energy and sensibility of rock and roll. True Blood (the smash hit HBO TV series, featuring his swampy "Bad Things" as the theme song) is when Jace Everett went global. He then put out his biggest record to date, Red Revelations , an album brimming with attitude, guitar twang, and dark sensuality and which took Everett from Nashville to Norway, London to Melbourne, and all across the United States. By the Spring of 2011, five of the tracks from Red Revelations had been licensed in film and TV. The new album feature 10 new songs with the new single being Woke Up in This Town.
