Caitlin Jemma & the Goodness

Caitlin Jemma is a small-town girl with a big country heart. Raised in the high desert of Northern Nevada, her songwriting is influenced by a sense of adventure, reverie, and discovery. With a sound tempered by country and delivered with soul, Caitlin Jemma brings a wholesome and enlivened energy to the deep-rooted traditions of storytelling folk. Jemma’s sweet and salty twang has earned comparisons to a young Iris Dement, with echoes of Gillian Welch & Valerie June.

Bart Budwig

Bart Budwig grew up on the Idaho Palouse, with a pawn shop trumpet and a heart as big as a skyscraper - if skyscrapers knew how to be humble. Bart learned melody from classic jazz charts and found that fault-lines in big hearts create drifting continents, cut new oceans and forge new mountains. Eventually, everyone close to him disappeared, whether to death or Texas, and it was from Texas that he got a letter from Waylon Jennings inviting him to pick up a guitar and a pen.
