Wayne Hancock
Wayne Hancock
"Wayne Hancock has more Hank Sr. in him than either I or Hank Williams Jr.  He is the real deal."   - Hank III

"Hancock, who tosses out a roots mix of old country, roadhouse blues, western dance swing, boogie bop, and straight-up rockabilly, takes what was once old and makes it seem like it's always been and always will be."---allmusic.com

"The country music scene could do with a lot more characters like Wayne, who push the music's limits while staying truer to its roots than any well-known names associated with the genre today." – Slug Magazine

Since his stunning debut, Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995, Wayne "The Train" Hancock has been the undisputed king of Juke Joint Swing--that alchemist's dream of honky-tonk, western swing, blues, Texas rockabilly and big band. Always an anomaly among his country music peers, Wayne's uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is in fact what defines him: steeped in traditional but never "retro;" bare bones but bone shaking; hardcore but with a swing. Like the comfortable crackle of a Wurlitzer 45 jukebox, Wayne is the embodiment of genuine, house rocking, hillbilly boogie.


Wayne makes music fit for any road house anywhere. With his unmistakable voice, The Train's reckless honky-tonk can move the dead. If you see him live (and he is ALWAYS touring), you'll surely work up some sweat stains on that snazzy Rayon shirt you're wearing. If you buy his records, you'll be rolling up your carpets, spreading sawdust on the hardwood, and dancing until the downstairs neighbors are banging their brooms on the ceiling. Call him a throwback if you want, Wayne just wants to ENTERTAIN you, and what's wrong with that?

Wayne's disdain for the slick swill that passes for real deal country is well known. Like he's fond of saying: "Man, I'm like a stab wound in the fabric of country music in Nashville. See that bloodstain slowly spreading? That's me."

Little known fact: Wayne is the only Bloodshot artist to have had their CD taken aboard a space shuttle flight.

"A rare breed of traditionalist, one who imbues his retro obsessions with such high energy and passions that his songs never feel like the museum pieces he's trying desperately to preserve." —AllMusic.com
Beartoe
Beartoe
Beartoe has been writing, performing and touring from The Historical DeLand florida for over 10 years. First, in college under the band name Attic, then as Dish, a brother duo that found them with L.A. session players Jen Condos and Jay Bellerose.
Beartoe's current project has no doubt shown introspection, but has brought together a sound thats been filtered through the roots and rich history of Florida folk, delta blues and soul with players Brian Chodorcoff, Nadeem Khan and Allen Cowart adding to that history.

Luke Wagner
Luke Wagner
Luke Wagner is a Georgia born, Central Florida based Americana/Folk, Singer/Songwriter, who's early influences spawn from his parents old record collection, an appetite fueled by Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and many other 1960's-80's singer/songwriters. Growing up in a military family, Luke was able to see much of the United States early in his life which was a key ingredient to his blend of musical story telling and satirical observations to American life.
