The Brook & The Bluff

The Brook & The Bluff is a Birmingham-born, Nashville-based band that has quickly become recognized by its evocative blend of vocal harmony, soulful air and groovitational pull. These elements are readily apparent in the group's releases, which have helped spur the band forward in their musical pursuits. What started as a duo of Alec & Joseph transformed into the dynamic live act with John & Fred filling out the band.

The quartet's early music was widely successful - from charting on Spotify's US and Canada Viral 50 Playlists to sold out shows across the country, the band has had an exhilarating launch. The Brook & The Bluff’s debut full length album, FIRST PLACE, was released in late 2019 and the band continues to grow with thrilling live shows across the country.

Jasper Wilderness is an Alternative Rock band out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Gabriel Phillips, Samuel Bowling, and Jacob Brallier were attending the same university when a mutual friend threw a school band together. This project was the first time that the three decided music was to be in their future. They met in Jacob's living room and experimented with Gabriel's lyrics to "Black Gold." Over the next couple months, the band added two of Samuel's childhood friends, Jeremy Pelotte and Justin Scott. Jasper Wilderness released its first song "Cherish the River" in February, 2020. The band has since released a string of singles. Each of them hit a different element of the band’s personality and shows the variety with which they hope to build their musical fingerprint. The intensity of Black Gold, desperation in Ghosts, and raw energy of Younger draws the band closer to finding their sound and articulates their desire to encompass the human experience.
