Matt Szlachetka

‘Young Heart, Old Soul’, the upcoming third album from roots-rock singer/songwriter Szlachetka, unfolds like the soundtrack to a cross-country road trip. Filled with heartland hooks, folk melodies, and searing electric guitar, these songs draw a line between Los Angeles — where he lived for years, soaking up the warm harmonies and jangling riffs of the city’s folk-rock icons — and his new home in Nashville, TN, the epicenter of modern-day Americana.

For the past half-decade, he’s been building his audience show-by-show, touring for more than 200 days a year.  Matt has been earning praise from outlets like ‘Rolling Stone Country’, who hailed his catalog of “road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads.” ‘Young Heart, Old Soul’ finds him in transit once again, writing songs about a country torn apart by politics yet united by a common spirit. Produced by Scott Underwood, the Grammy-winning co-founder of Train, and largely recorded at Nashville’s legendary Blackbird Studios, ‘Young Heart, Old Soul’ offers its own version of amplified Americana music. ‘Young Heart, Old Soul’ is also a record about home — the homes we leave behind, the homes we temporarily visit, and the homes we build with others. Maybe that’s why these 11 songs feel so grounded. After all, Szlachetka — whose self-made success includes high-profile shows alongside Brandi Carlile, Mike Campbell, and Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr, and Benji Shanks; regular appearances on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio; and his own DittyTV program, ‘Vinyl Recipes’, which combines his love for music, cooking, and cocktails — isn’t running anymore. Instead, he’s finally arrived.

Cara Louise

Cara Louise, born Cara Louise Wegener, is a singer-songwriter from St. Louis, MO, now residing in Nashville, TN.  Louise’s unique and soulful sound comes from her powerful and emotive vocal chops. The artist’s extensive range, coupled with inspired melodies and sincere, relatable lyricism, set her aside as a true force of nature. Originally fronting Cara Louise Band from 2013-2018 Cara cut her teeth playing open mic nights, dive bars, and honky-tonks regionally around St. Louis City. During that time, Cara released two EP’s and an LP via Gaslight Records, each thoroughly inspired by golden country and the 70’s Nashville sound. In 2019, Cara dropped the “Band” from her name, and released a new EP, “Fragile Heart”, produced by David Beeman at Native Sound Studios, and released via Soul Step Records. “Fragile Heart” redefined the artist’s sound and built a strong foundation where her signature meld of indie-rock, folk, and Americana could begin to coalesce.

Cara has toured her music nationally, and has opened for notable acts such as Margo Price, Nikki Lane, James McMurtry, Hayes Carll, and more. Cara has played Twangfest, Open Highway Music Festival, Musician’s Corner and more. Cara will embark on a release tour in Fall of 2022, in support of her latest LP “Wholesome Dread”, show dates and times TBA. Recording and touring band members include Scotti Iman, PJ Schreiner, Simon Chervitz, Dylan Lancaster, Nigel Solomon, and Buddy Schumaker; as well as husband, frequent collaborator, and co-writer, Adam Donald. Cara’s music would pair well with fans of Sharon Van Etten, Stevie Nicks, Broken Social Scene, and Brandi Carlile. Her latest single “Empty Me” is available now everywhere music is streamed, with more singles to be released along the way. “Wholesome Dread” will release via Soul Step Records Sep. 30th, 2022.

Dazed & Confused

Dazed was founded by US Army Veterans Rusty Ezzell (disabled) and Dustin Row. Being the founder of Songs4Soldiers, Dustin met Rusty through a VA trip for Disabled American Veterans. After meeting, Dustin invited Rusty to sing a song with his current band at the 2016 Songs4Soldiers Benefit Concert. From there the two started a heavy hitting, fun, energetic rock n roll project called Dazed n Confused STL. Dazed plays plenty of rock hits and also has a deep collection of famous b-sides tunes from artists such as April Wine, Allman Brothers, Robin Trower and so many more.

When not playing venues or large outdoor shows, Dazed also started performing these songs acoustically as a full band for wineries, small venues and private parties. What sets apart Dazed from other projects is; song selection and the iconic rock voice of disabled veteran Rusty Ezzell. Rusty performs the show as energetically as a rocker from a wheelchair can!
