Her music is stunning in its raw power, scope, and ability to take you places you’ve never been. A survivor of bad breaks and regrettable timing, she has nonetheless continued to be a force in the industry as well as in the hearts of her many fans. She may be the best-kept secret in some quarters, but if you believe in karma and talent, her day has come.

The Cowboy Poets: The Cowboy Poets are a Nashville based trio with a sound uniquely their own. A healthy dose of electrified blues, soulful rock, and outlaw country are the main ingredients to what can only be described as a high energy sound. The two founding members, Nicolas Nguyen, and Scott Johnson were in the roots rock trio Bonepony and after decades of being on the road with acts like Bob Seger, ZZ Top, Fleetwood Mac, and Carlos Santana, the guys decided to take a break and spend some time re-tooling their sound. The Cowboy Poets' debut record, "The Best Is Yet To Come" exhibits well-weathered vocals, playful lyrics and a gritty musicianship that makes you want to throw your hands in the air and join in with the band.
