  • They have toured with The Lumineers, k.d. lang, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Punch Brothers, including a headline tour after the release of their first full-length studio album, Prologue (2011).
  • Three tracks off of their recent album, The Ash & Clay (2013), were prominently featured in the movie Promised Land (2012) starring Matt Damon and John Krasinski.

  • Singer/songwriter Brian Wright performs plaintive ballads and rootsy rock, inspired by iconic rock ’n’ rollers and the storytelling musicians of his native Texas. After releasing his 2013 album, Rattle Their Chains, Wright was praised by American Songwriter for “sounding as if he’s been traversing the heartland for a fairly long time… he manages to sound both so rugged and resilient.”
