Learn More About the Artists

Brandy Clark

A ten-time GRAMMY nominee and CMA Awards “Song of the Year” recipient, Brandy Clark is one of her generation’s most respected and celebrated songwriters and musicians. Her songs include Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow,” Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two” and Hailey Whitter’s “Ten Year Town.” Her past two solo albums — 2013’s 12 Stories and 2016’s Big Day in a Small Town — each garnered immense critical acclaim landing on “Best of the Year” lists at New York Magazine, Billboard, NPR Music, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, etc. NPR Music’s Ann Powers calls her, “a storyteller of the highest caliber,” while Rolling Stone‘s Will Hermes declares, “a country visionary…the consolation of a beautiful voice delivering a well-built song, cold truth rising from it like fog off dry ice.”  

Ten-time Grammy nominee Clark was nominated for two awards at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards: Song of the Year (“A Beautiful Noise” performed by Alicia Keys and Brandi Carlile) and Best American Roots Performance (“Same Devil” featuring Carlile). 
The nominations add to a landmark year for Clark, whose new deluxe album, Your Life is a Record (Deluxe), is out now on Warner Records. The special extended edition features all eleven tracks from Clark’s Grammy-nominated album, Your Life is a Record, as well as six new songs including “Same Devil.” The deluxe version, which was released this past spring to celebrate Your Life is a Record‘s one-year anniversary, also includes a collaboration with Lindsey Buckingham as well as “Remember Me Beautiful,” which Clark wrote late last year with Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, and Liz Rose for NPR’s Morning Edition Song Project. Released to widespread acclaim, Billboard praised the song, asserting, “Clark beautifully recounts what loss feels like, both for the person left behind and for the one slipping away … Whether you lost someone you love deeply during this horrible year or 20 years ago, Clark’s song instantly recalls the pain and beauty,” while Rolling Stone declares, “a new stunner of a song,” and Music Row hails, “powerfully emotional gem.” 
Produced by Jay Joyce, Your Life is a Record was nominated for Best Country Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards and landed on several “Best of 2020” lists including NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Variety, Paste and Slate, who declared, “one of the greatest living short-story-song writers in country (which really means in any genre) … I don’t think there’s a 2020 country or country-adjacent album that outdoes Clark’s.” Moreover, The New Yorker praised, “No one is writing better country songs than Brandy Clark is…all of Clark’s albums have terrific songs, but Your Life is a Record is the best-sounding album that she’s released.” Her songwriting is featured in the new Broadway musical comedy Shucked (opening March 2023).

Sunny War

Sunny War is an internationally touring, Nashville-based singer-songwriter and true guitar virtuoso. Her 9new album, Anarchist Gospel, coming soon via New West Records, explores themes of deep internal conflict. “I feel like there are two sides of me,” says War. “That’s what it is to be human. You’re not good or bad, you’re just trying to stay in the middle of those two things all the time and you’re probably doing a bad job of it. That’s ok, because we’re all just monsters.”

Miko Marks

Thirteen years after her last album, Miko Marks re-emerged stronger than ever with Our Country (March 2021, Redtone Records). She had all but given up on her career aspirations after she was effectively told by Nashville executives that her music was good but wouldn’t sell. Fast-forward 13 years later — she crafted a beautiful album that is getting nods from NPR, Rolling Stone, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and more. Most recently, Marks was named to the 2022 class of Country Music Television’s Next Women of Country, and she is participating in the first Equal Access program. In October 2022, Marks released her widely anticipated album Feel Like Going Home and made her Grand Ole Opry debut on the same day. The album landed on several year-end “best-of” lists including Rolling Stone, NPR, Paper, and Garden & Gun, among others.

Mike Block Trio

Mike Block is a pioneering cello player, singer, composer, and educator, passionate about cross-cultural collaboration through music. Acclaimed by the New York Times for his “vital rich-hued solo playing” and by Salt Lake City Desert News as “a true artist… a sight to behold,” Block “is one of the bravest, most intriguing musicians on the American fusion scene” (Gramophone). Block’s performances offer a rich combination of classical repertoire, folk music, original compositions, and songs. Since 2005, Block has been a member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, with whom he has been featured as both cello and vocal soloist, contributed arrangements and compositions, and earned a Grammy Award for their album Sing Me Home (2017).  

Led by Mike Block, the Mike Block Trio fertilizes American roots music with contemporary and international influences, bringing an exciting and personal perspective to the acoustic music scene.
