It’s a quiet confidence, an air of authority limited to only the most studied artists, a
commanding irreverence woven with a thread of vulnerability. There’s something
inexplicably authentic about Oklahoma’s Travis Linville, and it’s carried him from dive bars
and classrooms to “The Tonight Show” and esteemed theaters and festivals across the
globe.
Linville is legendary regionally for his work in the now-defunct Burtschi Brothers and for
his behind-the-scenes influence—including producing John Fullbright’s first album and
teaching guitar lessons to a then nine-year-old Parker Millsap. The “Oklahoma Gazette”
rightly called him a “godfather of modern Oklahoma folk” and noted that his success
opened doors for a state teeming with talent: a mentor and contemporary for other
Oklahoma acts like Fullbright, Millsap, Turnpike Troubadours and John Moreland.
His acclaimed solo releases include 2012’s “Sun or Moon” and 2014’s “Out on the Wire”
EP, called “rich, soulful and beautiful” by Jimmy LaFave. A live audition of a track from the
latter even netted him a role in a William H. Macy film, in which he performed the song.
A gifted instrumentalist, Linville is also known for his work as a sideman with Texas
songwriter Hayes Carll, who calls him “criminally underrated.” He’s also performed
with Willie Nelson, Tommy Allsup and Ryan Bingham and shared billing with Merle
Haggard, Other Lives and Billy Joe Shaver, among countless others.
Independently, Linville has sold 15,000 albums and played thousands of shows across his
20-plus year career, with an ever-evolving repertoire deeply rooted in songcraft, sly
humor and subtlety.
“Travis Linville writes, plays and sings music the way it’s supposed to be done,” Carll says.
“With depth, heart and soul. One of my all-time favorite musicians.”

Lifelong couple, both romantic and musical, Alyssa and Doug Graham have been performing together since they were teenagers. 2014 saw them play over 100 shows including a three-week run in Australia.

Their sophomore album, Glory Bound, was produced by Wes Sharon (John Fullbright, Parker Millsap), features Fullbright and the Turnpike Troubadours, and has been praised as one of the best Americana albums of 2015 by numerous publications including No Depression.

A live album and film, Rattle the Hocks, both produced and directed by Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars, chronicles their train-bound excursions and the influence of train travel on American roots music; both were released in conjunction with Glory Bound.
