Born in Detroit and living in San Diego by way of Queens, New York, Missy Andersen follows her self-titled debut with a timeless follow-up of blues going straight to the spirit and body. With her band leader/guitarist/husband Heine Andersen, she has again created a personal soundtrack for good times and the pain and joys of love.

 

In the Moment has 11 varied tracks including 8 originals, five of which are penned by the Andersens. Recorded with heavy hitters Bill Stuve (bass), Marty Dodson (drums), Sue Palmer (piano), Ben Moore (organ), and guest appearances by Nathan James and James Harman, the CD takes the listener down a lush musical path. Beginning with the Louis Jordan-esque “Rent Party” and ending with a gospel-tinged remake of Snooks Eaglin’s “I’ve Been Walkin’,” the disc has something for everyone. From Chicago blues to New Orleans second-line beats, slow blues and soul ballads, Memphis soul to funky Meters-like rhythms. It’s all in there and it’s easy to understand where those wide-ranging influences come from.

Knowing that they wanted to write more original songs on the sophomore CD, Missy and Heine took what turned into a much longer than anticipated hiatus from touring to concentrate on songwriting while maintaining a heavy, local performance schedule. Their persistence paid off though and In the Moment was born. Receiving rave reviews from both critics and fans since its August 2014 release, the CD has maintained a steady appearance on four of the Roots Music Report album charts (Blues, Contemporary Blues, California, US Blues) as well as two song charts (Contemporary Blues, California) for radio play. The CD ended the year by being named one of Living Blues Radio Charts Top 50 Albums of 2014.

Jordyn Pepper - 2018 Folk/Americana "Entertainer Of The Year"  Josie Music Award

She is the perfect blend of organic, deep-mountain roots, folk (with a little splash of soft blues), rock and country.  Put it all together and you have the makings of an Americana artist.  Her name is Jordyn Pepper, and she has something to sing about. Recently signed to Howlin’ Dog Records Jordyn just released her freshman album "Mountain Rain." Her first single "Back to My Roots" was released earlier this year followed by her second single "1862" both from the album. This Nashville based singer/songwriter is described by many as a breath of fresh air, with crystal-clear vocals and a uniqueness that only says, “That’s Jordyn Pepper.” 

"We here at Howlin’ Dog hear shades of Loretta Lynn, Natalie Maines, Stevie Nicks and others in the lineage of great female singers, but most of all we hear Jordyn Pepper, weaving all of these threads into a seamless expression of a young woman venturing out into the world,” Don Richmond, engineer/producer at Howlin’ Dog, said.

Mike's most recent release is titled A Song To Die For, released November, 2014. Among his last few releases were co-written: One with Willie Nelson (A Tale Out of Luck), and the other with Kenny Rogers, titled "What Are the Chances" (released Sept. 2013). 

As a performing songwriter, Mike has released 11 CDs, performed all over the U.S., and made 16 tours to Europe.  His songs have been recorded by Alan Jackson, Gary P. Nunn, Red Steagall, Flaco Jimenez and Raul Malo, john Arthur Martinez, Randy Brown, Geronimo Trevino III and Johnny Rodriguez, Johnny Bush, Pauline Reese, Debbi Walton and others. He is currently working in the studio on his next CD.

A native Texan, Mike served in the U.S. Air Force and later earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Texas at Austin.  He released his first novel 1988 and his first CD in 1995.  One of his co-written tunes landed on a Grammy Award-winning album by Flaco Jimenez in 1995.  Another was played on the orbiting International Space Station in 2007.

Mike is a two-time winner of Western Writers of America’s Spur Award – once for best western novel of the year, and once for best western song of the year.

 

Mike spent many years touring with his dancehall band, but now plays more shows as a solo artist, or in a duo or trio configuration at listening rooms, house concerts, festivals, and private parties.  His career as a novelist leads to many non-traditional concerts at book stores, libraries, writer’s conferences, and book clubs.

"Having celebrated our house concert anniversary with the seventh show by Mike, we can only attest that it just keeps getting better and better!  I'll personally guarantee it to be one of the musical highlights of your life!" - Paula Reynolds, Hilltop House Concerts, Kerrville, TX.

“Blakely is a consummate artist whose superb ability to capture an audience only serves to highlight his songwriting skills... which approach brilliance.” – Buddy Case, “The Loft,” Enola, AR

"Mike helped us establish our restaurant as a major music venue in the Hill Country of Texas. He has produced a weekly concert series for us for over eight years, consistently packing the house show after show. We have been named "Best Live Music Venue" four years in a row thanks to his efforts.  He is an established talent, a huge asset to our business and a real pro." - Paul Brady, Owner of River City Grille, Marble Falls, TX.
