Colin Gilmore grew up in Lubbock, Texas, spending many nights as a child in nightclubs like Stubbs, where he witnessed songwriters like Joe Ely, Terry Allen, and his own father, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, bring the stage to life. He developed a taste for Buddy Holly, Townes Van Zandt, and bands like The Clash and The Pogues. For 14 years, Colin has been informed by these observations, writing songs and playing under his own name. He recently performed in and wrote songs for the critically acclaimed feature film Barracuda, which premiered at SXSW Film Festival and has since had great success and distribution. He is currently working on another album with producer Richard Barone.

Colin’s second album Goodnight Lane won fans across the world and critical acclaim, including 4-star reviews in Mojo and Uncut. The songwriting style he is creating has developed over the years, emphasizing uniqueness and truth above immediate public reaction. His third release The Wild and Hollow marks a departure from Goodnight Lane, sonically and stylistically. The recordings took place in Austin and Chicago, under the direction of Rob Seidenberg and Tim Bennett, respectively. The album features two songs by Colin’s lifelong friend Johnny Walker, of Archive War and Ignorance Park. It will features a string section by Will Taylor and Strings Attached, guest vocals by Amanda Shires, Sally Allen, Julia Klee and a host of other talents. Colin has also collaborated with his Chicago-based band on the opening track “Into My Future”, which points to the way in which his travels are shaping his overall act. His tours in the US, Japan and Italy, and the crowd responses in all of them, prove that Colin has a rare gift that cuts across styles and cultures.

NICOLETTE GOOD

Nicolette Good is a performing songwriter and 2012 winner of the Kerrville New Folk competition. Based in Austin, Texas, her effortless storytelling shines on her latest release “Little Boat on a Wave” (2015) in toe-tappers like “Aloha” and “All the Time in the World.” Several cuts from Little Boat were written or completed during an artist fellowship at The Lighthouse Works in Fishers Island, New York.

Her first full-length, “Monarch” (2012) includes songs like “Hurricane Caroline” and “Pretty Clementine,” which tell intimate stories of enigmatic, tragic characters, as she sings with penetrating insight about hope, wrenching love, and the mysteries of everyday life.

A Houston native, Nicolette is also a staff musician for Home Street Music, an Austin non-profit using music to empower people who have experienced homelessness.

Critics have called her “a songwriter to follow” and “a poet of the first order.”

“Good is an insightful and unsympathetic observer of the world she sees around her … and imagines for us.” – D.c. Bloom, Lone Star Music Magazine
