Cranford Hollow
It's a boot stomp on a dusty bar floor. It's the clang of a whiskey bottle at last call. It's grit. It's the sounds of the South. It's Cranford Hollow, a blended mix of Southern Rock, Appalachian Fiddle Music and American Rock and Roll.

The Hilton Head Island quintet, comprised of vocalist and guitarist John Cranford, bass man Phillip Sirmans, drummer Randy Rockalotta, fiddler and vocalist Eric Reid, and guitarist Yannie Renicke have won over thousands of loyal fans with what they call Lowcountry Stomp, a sound that is at once eclectic but uniquely their own. Elements of Blues, Old-Time Country, and Southern Psychedelic Rock come together with ancient mountain melodies in an energetic, engaging musical root bag sprinkled with some Sea Island hoodoo. Since 2011 Cranford Hollow has been playing upwards of 200 shows a year, steadily expanding from the South Carolina Lowcountry to places as far afield as Eau Claire, WI, Livingston, MT and Taos, NM.

The band will be releasing their fifth studio album "Color/Sound/Renew/Revive" in September and continue to tour nationally into 2017 to promote the new record.
Ethan Willis and the Long Goners
This is not your typical country. Get ready for a high energy, head banging, boot stomping, southern grunge show.

At 22 years old, singer-songwriter Ethan Willis is already turning heads in the country music scene. From his masterfully composed lyrics to his explosive live performances, Ethan displays the passion and professionalism of a seasoned touring artist. And he shows no signs of slowing down. His debut single "Camo & Ammo" gives his fans a feel of what this country singer is all about. The edgy, high-energy chord progressions combined with his outlaw-style lyrics will make you wishing it was hunting season. Ethan is currently in the studio recording his highly anticipated debut album which will be released in the summer of 2016.

Ethan started pursuing a music career at an early age. He started playing drums for various bands all over Memphis, TN. This allowed him to hone his stage craft and gain admiration within the music community. During this time, Ethan was perfecting his songwriting craft as a country artist. His songs were gaining so much popularity he decided it was time to take it to the next level. His debut concert as Ethan Willis was at a showcase for Warner Music Group at the Hard Rock Café in Memphis, TN. Ethan and his band took stage and blew the audience away. This never-before-seen act left the crowd wanting more (especially Warner Music Group!) and ended up leaving that night with the title of Top Performer! Since then he has been steadily gaining fans and support and hopes to one day take the stage at Bridgestone Arena. Ethan Willis is an artist you should not sleep on!
