Bonnie Montgomery
Bonnie Montgomery
Upon first listening to Bonnie Montgomery, it’s easy to mistakenly assume that you’ve stumbled upon a long-buried track by a legend from the golden era of country/western music. Such is the artistry of this Arkansas native and silver-voiced songstress. Her story is of her journey, but she presents it through a folk/bluegrass/country perspective that’s traditional and timeless.

With "Forever", her second full-length album, Montgomery once again delves into classic country sounds and storytelling.

“It’s a concept album inspired by Willie Nelson’s Phases and Stages,” Montgomery says. “The songs are about life on the road, loss, and the mysticism of West Texas. We recorded it with love and magic in Austin, Texas, at Dale Watson’s Ameripolitan Studios."
Montgomery’s stunning vocal chops and ability to draw listeners in with her natural songwriting talent should come as no surprise: her musical roots run deep. Brought up among the never-ending sound of music that flowed through her family’s Arkansas music store, her childhood was heavily steeped in Ozark bluegrass, Texas swing, Delta blues, as well as gospel and rock and roll. Surrounded by talented musicians that ran the gamut from performers on the original Sun Records to bluegrass greats and opera singers, Montgomery expanded her musical horizons and began performing whenever possible.

Classically-trained and ready to bring her own distinct sound to the world, Montgomery released her first two EP’s (Cruel in 2011 followed by Joy in 2013) before debuting her first full-length, self-titled album in 2014. She traveled the U.S. and Europe on a tour for the album, sharing the stage with artists such as Gossip, Shovels and Rope, Robert Ellis, Hayes Carll, Billy Jo Shaver, Turnpike Troubadours, Pokey LaFarge, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, Joe Ely, Moot Davis, Mike and the Moonpies, Dale Watson, Chris Stapleton, Jason James, and Sturgill Simpson, among others.
2016 was a big year for Montgomery. It kicked off with her being named the Ameripolitan Outlaw Female of the Year. Springtime marked the premiere of her modern folk opera Billy Blythe (written about the childhood of Arkansas native Bill Clinton) by Opera Ithaca in New York. The show won the attention of critics at The New Yorker, The Economist, The Huffington Post, and the London Daily Telegraph.
With the release of "Forever", the journey continues. On the stage and up the highway, through love and despair, and from the Arkansas foothills to the vastness of West Texas: there’s no telling where Montgomery will take her listeners next.
Summer Dean

The band is a super-group of Chi-Town pickers, including Matt Gandurski on lead guitar, Dave Sisson on rhythm guitar and harmonies, and Josh Piet on upright bass.
Joe Wortell And The Natural Law
Joe Wortell And The Natural Law
Real country Music is about a great song, a great story and being free. Joe Wortell, the Barber turned Golden-voiced Singer-Man, delivers the first two in spades and lives that last mantra everyday.
Backing him up for his beautifully-crafted blue-collar anthems and for inspired covers of the greatest songs of Classic Country, is one of Chicago’s finest steel guitar players, Jeff Lyman and the hard-hitting but deep-grooving rhythm section of Ryan Quilty and Brian Westfall. When they get together they call themselves Joe Wortell and the Natural Law.
Cox's Army

Marian Runk
Marian Runk
Marian Runk is Texas-born, Chicago-based singer, songwriter, and visual artist. She writes songs about love, loss, death, restlessness, and the natural world. Her debut album, A Few Feet from the Ground, hovers in and around the genres of country, folk, and blues. It offers both lush full band and spare solo arrangements that highlight a clear voice and emotional arc. “[A Few Feet from the Ground] sounds like poetry set to classic country music— like Joni Mitchell doing a Hank Williams thing. Runk’s soprano voice is like honey and her tunes are full of hooks.”—Tony Breed (CHIRP Radio)

Horseshoe Bender
Horseshoe Bender
Saddle up and grab yourself another round of beers!
Horseshoe Bender is a brand new team of some of the hardest working musicians in Chicago’s vibrant roots music scene. Comprised of current and former members of Joybird, Bowlcut, Growler, Glass Mountain, and The Henhouse Prowlers, and led by the dynamic duet of Jess McIntosh and Aaron Smith, the group is a new old-fashioned honky tonk outfit like no other. This ragtag team of old time revivalists, jazz improvisers, and bluegrass shredders has joined forces with a shared love of classic country music and three goals in mind: to pay tribute to the country and western voices that have inspired them, to give you a reason to dance, and to justify that extra round of beers.

And justify they will, because this band is as hot as it gets. With the promise of fresher-than-fresh takes on timeless songs from the likes of George Jones & Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris, and more, what else could you ask for? Horseshoe Bender is here, so grab your dancing shoes, pick a partner, and get on the dance floor!
David Quinn
David Quinn
David Quinn got his start playing drums around Chicago which lead straight onto touring with other bands across the country. In a large wanderingsabbatical toward the west coast, he wrote and recorded his own work while traveling through the passing trees and winding elevations. Even withhis love of the brisk mountain desert heat, his kindred roots brought him back to the midwest, eventually landing him back in Chicago. Armed witha large catalog of singles, he connected with the revered Andrija Tokic - of Alabama Shakes, Luke Bell, and The Deslondes - at Bomb Shelter Studios and gathered key players to create his first LP, ‘Wandering’ Fool’. In June 2018, David Quinn joined Dave Roe - Johnny Cash’s bassist, Jimmy Lester - drummer for Billy Joe Shaver and Micah Hulscher - keyboardist for Margo Price, down in Nashville to create this twangy masterpiece. Blending these iconic musicians with his Midwest cosmic-country style has shaped this first studio album into a unique twist on dreamy classic country, something we’ve all been missing.
Country Doctors
Country Doctors
The Country Doctors founded their practice in 2001. They refer to themselves as an “alt-classic-neo-traditionalist-honkabilly band.” Their roots are in the heartfelt repertoire of country musicians who played and sang with a purity of emotion often lacking in the genre today, while at the same time embracing contemporary artists who share a similar approach to country music.

They’re easy to find as they play many venues and festivals in and around the Chicago area. In 2011 they opened Country Music Day at Taste of Chicago which culminated with a classic performance by Loretta Lynn and her band. That year, they were also nominated for a Chicago Music Award as Best Country-Western Entertainer. They have two albums on the independent Medical Records label.
