John Paul White is a Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter who proudly resides in Florence, Alabama. As one half of the critically acclaimed The Civil Wars, White toured the world and introduced millions to his music. Now, he's a co-founder of Single Lock Records, an independent record label based in the Shoals.
John Paul White's new album, his first in nearly a decade, is a remarkably and assuredly diverse collection spanning plaintive folk balladry, swampy southern rock, lonesome campfire songs, and dark acoustic pop. Gothic and ambitious, with a rustic, lived-in sound, it's a meditation on love curdling into its opposite, on recrimination defining relationships, on hope finally filtering through doubt.
A virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and award winning songwriter with a distinctive voice, Molly has turned the heads of even the most seasoned industry professionals. She began performing on stage when she was 11, and recorded her first album, The Old Apple Tree, at age 13. Since then, she's appeared on A Prairie Home Companion, at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and received a Momentum Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association in the instrumentalist category. Her lovely voice, impeccable guitar playing, and sensitive song writing make her a star on the rise.
“sings with the gentle authority of Gillian Welch, yet plays astoundingly fleet flat-picking guitar like Chet Atkins on superdrive.” - American Songwriter Magazine
