Laura Benitez and the Heartache
Laura Benitez and the Heartache use the three chord tools of country music to tell the simple, unvarnished truth about love, too much whiskey, and the call of the road. On their new album, «With All Its Thorns,» they delve deeper into country music's tradition of storytelling with songs about betrayal («Secrets»), murder («In Red»), and grief («Ghostship»), with a whole lot of heartbreak in between. John Amen of No Depression says, «With All Its Thorns shows Benitez and company claiming their place in a competitive genre in which success is often secured by those who can best reconcile emulation and originality; i.e., 'making it new,' but not too new… Benitez and the Heartache strike their own persuasive balance, offering songs that will engage conventionalists and hybridists alike; in the process, honing an undeniable presence that, with time, will only grow more finely tuned.»

Elliot Randall
“Elliot Randall is a country singer-songwriter who doesn’t sound like he should be from San Francisco. His music has an authentic feel, with lyrics that recall Waylon and Willie, along with the darker Merle and even the offbeat Dwight Yoakum, all coupled with the pop sensibilities of The Eagles." (Berkeley Place, 2010)

Mike Hellman
Mike Hellman is an independent country/Americana artist from Houston, TX (though he currently resides in Northern CA). His style has the distinct imprints of Waylon Jennings and other home state heroes of his, but his style is anything but cliché. With musical influences that include country, blues, and folk, and lyrical themes that deal honestly with all aspects of the human condition, his songs bring originality and substance to a genre that often seems done to death.
