John Fullbright
John Fullbright
John Fullbright got his start at the legendary Blue Door listening room
in Oklahoma City. It was there that he recorded a live album and
found his base, opening for many other writers including fellow
Oklahomans Kevin Welch and Jimmy Webb. His 2012 studio debut,
From the Ground Up, received a Grammy nomination for Americana
Album of the Year, and later that year he won ASCAP’s Harold
Adamson Award for lyric writing. In 2014, John released the critically acclaimed Songs, toured all over
America and the UK, and appeared on Late Night with David Letterman.
Willy Porter
Willy Porter
Willy Porter has been turning first time listeners into die hard fans for more than two decades. Willy blurs the line between indie-folk and rock with his searing signature finger-picking guitar sound, absorbing lyrics, and playful, high-energy live performance style. He has shared world stages with music icons Jeff Beck, Tori Amos, and Paul Simon, carving out a successful solo career as an artist who makes music that resonates long after the last guitar chord fades.

From the release of his breakthrough album, 1994’s Dog Eared Dream, to the launch of his own record label, Weasel Records, in 2005, Willy is an artist dedicated to delivering high-test, original musical experiences. His 2015 album, Human Kindness, featured the songs “Train” and “Chippewa Boots,” performed live on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion by Willy and his singing/songwriting partner, Carmen Nickerson. The pair teamed up again in 2016 to make Bonfire to Ash, a record of co-writes produced by Grammy award-winner Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn, Jonatha Brooke).

Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, his songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar-driven events--equal parts grit, soul, and muscle--that are electrifying, dynamic, and wholly original in the way that Willy’s voice blends and fuses with his virtuoso fret work.

Whether in the studio or on stage, Willy Porter gifts listeners with an unforgettable ride, embodying the very best of what live music has to offer.
