A full-time singer/songwriter, Tim Ostdiek is a playful and dynamic entertainer, an uplifting songwriter, and a tastefully refined guitarist. There is a simplicity and openness in Ostdieks music that might come from growing up in the small town of Scottsbluff, Nebraska with his close family. He grew up on Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, and Bruce Springsteen. In August 2016 he quit his coffee shop job to be a full-time artist and is currently working on his first full-length album expected to be released in early 2017. Stay up to date with Tim's music at timostdiek.com.
Mr. Eppler is best known as a songwriter. He has written, recorded, and produced four solo albums of his original music, eight original albums with his wife as their band The Prairie Scholars, and one audio collection of his poems and short stories. Mr. Eppler has also recorded and produced five albums of solo material by his partner and bride Jessica Eppler. His work was featured and compared to that of Mac Davis, Terry Allen, and Butch Hancock in volume eight of Journal of the Society for American Music published by Cambridge University Press in 2014.
