Jordyn Pepper

Jordyn Pepper

She is the perfect blend of organic, deep-mountain roots, folk (with a little splash of soft blues), rock and country. Put it all together and you have the makings of an Americana artist. Her name is Jordyn Pepper, and she has something to sing about. Recently signed to Howlin’ Dog Records Jordyn just released her first single "Back to My Roots" which is from her freshman album Mountain Rain that will be released later this year. This Nashville based singer/songwriter is described by many as a breath of fresh air, with crystal-clear vocals and a uniqueness that only says, “That’s Jordyn Pepper.”

"We here at Howlin’ Dog hear shades of Loretta Lynn, Natalie Maines, Stevie Nicks and others in the lineage of great female singers, but most of all we hear Jordyn Pepper, weaving all of these threads into a seamless expression of a young woman venturing out into the world,”
Don Richmond, engineer/producer at Howlin’ Dog, said.

Originally from Monte Vista, Colorado, Jordyn says growing up in a small town on a potato and barley farm with not much music influence was hard for a girl trying to find her voice. 

“I would sing as much as I could whether it would be in church, driving the tractors in the fields or even in my room with a hairbrush,” she said. “I would sing all the time! My mom would always say, ’I hear a diamond in the rough,’ when I was singing.” 

In her early years, Jordyn was very influenced by country music, mainly because that was the only radio station in her small town. Her favorite group back then were the Dixie Chicks; which you can hear a little weave of their influence in some of the music she writes today. Since moving to Nashville (and just plain growing up), she became more influenced by other groups and singer/songwriters such as Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, Patty Griffin, John Butler Trio, Led Zeppelin, and Mindy Smith. You can hear a little of each of these artists — with her own twist on them _— in her songs. One of the highlights of Jordyn's career was winning the 2016 Josie Music Awards for Individual Vocalist of the Year for Folk/Americana/Bluegrass. 

Jordyn will be hitting the road this summer on her first tour to promote her soon-to-be-released album "Mountain Rain." If she is in your area come in and join the fun! Find out why she plays her shows barefoot. Join Jordyn's mailing list to find out what's happening and what's in the future for her adventures. She is your organic, free-spirited, barefoot hippie and her story continues to be written.

Grifters and Shills

Grifters and Shills

Check out Grifters and Shills here

High lonesome heavy metal - amplifyin' and testifyin' for your soul.

His was hard rock and heavy metal. Hers was the classic sound of the East Texas piney woods. Theirs was a fiery collision, bearing forth a sound that was at once novel and instantly familiar--nodding to roots seated deep in high lonesome harmonies and back porch blues, while peering out at a scorched path bound by modern assertions and contemporary commentary. 

Behind Grifters & Shills is John and Rebecca Stoll, who met in a classic rock/blues jam band in 2008. Between them they discovered a magnetic chemistry that manifested not only in music, but in all aspects of their relationship. When they began playing songs as a two-piece band, they found a unique voice in the combination of Rebecca's East Texas vocal stylings and John's formidable guitar work. They immediately began writing their own original songs, while testing the waters of vocal harmonies, and adding an array of instrumentation to their arsenal, including bass guitar, cigar box, resonator, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, lap steel and harmonica. 

The sound defies genre, but they call it roots music, as there are obvious influences from americana, rock, ragtime, blues and bluegrass.  

Above all, this two-person, dozen-instrument act provides a show full of sound a fury, punctuated with raw, quiet vulnerability, shining new light on familiar ground.
