Anne Harris’ sonic signature is steeped in myriad American Roots traditions from Blues, folk, and gospel to country and rock. She has spent the last 10 years touring internationally as a blues musician.

“Once you have witnessed Anne Harris play the violin, you aren’t likely to forget the experience any time soon… She inhabits the music, or maybe the music inhabits her, but it is impossible not to be drawn under her spell”.
-BluesWax

Chicago based Americana/Folk/Rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Ernie Hendrickson spent a great deal of time honing his skills in Nashville.
