About Laura Burhenn:
In 2009, singer-songwriter Laura Burhenn founded The Mynabirds in Omaha, Nebraska. The band has since produced two well-received albums, each backed with an aggressive touring schedule. Burhenn has also been a member of touring bands for Bright Eyes and, most recently, The Postal Service. More about Burhenn and the Mynabirds can be discovered at http://themynabirds.com/.
About Gregory Alan Isakov:
Gregory Alan Isakov has been traveling all his life. Songs that hone a masterful quality beyond his years tell a story of miles and landscapes, and the search for a sense of place. His song-craft lends to the deepest lyrical masterpieces, with hints of his influences, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen. Isakov's delicious website is gregoryalanisakov.com.
About Eric D. Johnson:
Eric D. Johnson has recorded and performed as Fruit Bats for a decade now, but his career in music has also includes sideman duties for bands including Califone, Vetiver and The Shins, and more recently, soundtrack work for films like Ceremony and Our Idiot Brother.

About Joe Pug:
Joe Pug decided to use a unique promotional strategy to recruit his fans to help spread the word about his music. He took his most popular songs, printed up CDs, and offered to send them free of charge to anyone who wanted to share his music with their friends. This strategy has paid off time and again several EPs and two full-length albums later. Pug's rise in the music world is made all the more remarkable considering his career as a full-time musician began only a few years ago in 2008. More Joe Pug is found at http://www.joepugmusic.com/.
