Best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz Longley is an accomplished singer-songwriter based out of Nashville. Known for her deeply emotional music, Liz has earned accolades from some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition. Signed with Sugar Hill Records, her self-titled debut album received critical acclaim, being described as “a thing of beauty” (Pop Dose) and “packed with instantly memorable pop rock songs…” (Popmatters) Her follow up album Weightless, released in 2016, was praised as “stunning” (HuffPost) and “something more; a cleverness, a wit and a mix of musical styles” (Dallas Morning News) Liz’s music has been featured on tv shows such as Lifetime’s "Army Wives,” ABC’s "Beauty & The Beast" and MTV’s “Scream.”
In her latest single, Longley delivers on her ability to craft intimately personal portraits through music with her emotional take on the Four Tops’ “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)”. The Berklee College of Music alumn is headed into the studio with 5-time Grammy-nominated producer, Paul Moak, for her much awaited sixth album.

Michael McArthur's songs are his own mix of raw soul and lushly layered folk, working with producers like David Bianco (Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams) and Greg Wells (Adele, One Republic) along the way. He makes his full-length debut with 2019's Ever Green, Ever Rain, an album that's by turns warm, woozy and wistful. The album shows the full range not only of McArthur's voice — a gorgeous instrument that soars and swoons, flecked with vibrato and palpable emotion — but his songwriting, too, bouncing from the soft acoustics of "Elaine" to the percussive pulse of "Save Me From the Fire." Recorded with Grammy-winning producer Ryan Freeland and inspired by McArthur's long period of isolation and self-repair, Ever Green, Ever Rain is both earthy and anthemic — the sound of a songwriter who's unafraid to shine a light on his own faults.
