Small Town Pistols 
About
a year ago, Tyler Wilkinson headed out to Nashville thinking he’d help
his sister Amanda write her next solo record. Instead, he found himself
with a whole new band. Small Town Pistols is what Tyler and Amanda ended
up calling themselves, after the prolonged writing sabbatical turned
into a recording odyssey that stretched from Tennessee, to Toronto, to
Vancouver. Along the way, they enlisted the help of friends like Joey
Moi, and Steve Bays-plus their dad, Steve-to construct a debut,
self-titled album that swings gracefully from vintage country to chiming
modern pop. Small Town Pistols is the result of an abiding and maturing dedication to songcraft, as well as a long and deep connection as performers.

Bobby Wills
In
2010 Bobby began working on “If It Was That Easy” with
songwriter/producer Mike Pyle (Blake Shelton), who introduced Wills to
the Muscle Shoals music scene and to his friend, legendary songwriter
Walt Aldridge (Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire). Wills feels his new CD “If It
Was That Easy”, featuring the Top 10 single “Show Some Respect”, and
the current Top 25 (and rising) smash “Somebody Will”, is a true
reflection of Bobby Wills, the artist. His elegant country vocals are
overlaid on modern country sounds that nestle in neatly alongside Zac
Brown and Carrie Underwood on country music playlists.

and supporter Jann Arden and recently opened a series of dates for
Dallas Smith and Chad Brownlee.

Dylan Guthro
His debut recording, All That’s True,
charged out of the gate this year and has already garnered
singer-songwriter Dylan Guthro, a Music Nova Scotia award for New Artist
Recording of the Year. From his two sold-out release concerts in
Halifax, to his summer festival schedule, to his month long tour of
Denmark and Germany, Dylan has been winning over fans and industry with
his catchy and sincere songs, his superb musicianship and his impressive
vocals. An experienced and entertaining performer, Dylan Guthro was
brought up in a musical household. He picked up his first guitar at the
age of four and has since toured with his dad, the internationally
renowned Bruce Guthro, as far as the prestigious Tonder Festival in
Denmark and as close to home as the Stan Rogers Folk Festival.
