Goodmorning Valentine
Goodmorning Valentine
Not one to stay put for long, prolific Ohio songwriter Joey Beltram has earned fans and friends through repeated solo motorcycle tours across the states. His songs describe the mix of exhilaration and longing that accompany these nomadic departures.

Beltram’s long-running project Goodmorning Valentine is eclectic Americana. His music embraces the upbeat rhythms of Motown and ’60s rock & pop, while paying tribute to the timeless songcraft that extends from Cole Porter to Johnny Cash, and to the world-weary musings of later decades’ artists like Jeff Tweedy and Tom Waits.

Beltram’s unforgettable melodies and powerful, plaintive vocals carry spare sparse lyrics against a sophisticated chamber-pop backdrop.

Of Goodmorning Valentine, The Big Takeover said, “The sense of wide-open space meeting the expanse of time that is at the heart of American roots music pervades, rich and dewy.”

Beltram’s succinct and tuneful vignettes raise a toast to our collective heartache, mourn the turn of seasons and love’s unraveling, and rejoice in music’s redemptive promise.

”Less-is-more lyrical tales of revelation and resignation . . . this is music for late nights in the dark, holding on to the one you love.” —AMERICANA UK
James Weston
James Weston
James Weston is an artist that cuts deep to the heart, while never holding back his soul. A lonely troubadour with a hypnotic and raspy baritone voice, he continues to capture audiences across the globe with his six-string dexterity and lyrical imagery.

For twenty years, James has been traveling with his guitar in hand, searching for the sounds in his head. He has written hundreds of songs over that time, and has collaborated with some of the top musicians in the game. He has even produced other artists, as well as working on film compositions in Los Angeles, California.

James now calls Nashville, Tennessee his home when he isn’t on the road. He most recently went into the studio to cut his 13th album, set to release in early spring of 2016. His style can be compared to folk and blues, with a little bit of poetry thrown in.

This year, James Weston is scheduled to play a six-week tour of Ireland/U.K. in the spring, and a U.S. tour this fall, along with multiple summer festivals. He is on a journey to connect his music to new people as he rambles along the highways, and across the oceans of this big blue world.
Warrick & Lowell
Warrick & Lowell
Hailing from the rolling wooded hills of Southern Indiana, at the borders of both Kentucky and Ohio, where the first ripples of the Appalachian foothills begin, Warrick and Lowell each bring their own particular brand of songwriting together, creating a sound which is both diverse and balanced in its presentation. Backed by the tempered sound of The Nobodies' Heirs (comprised of bassist Mark Van Patten, Drummer Zaq Fox, and Keyboardist Thomas Costa), the band packages two different interpretations of musical vision and blends them into a cohesive American sound.
Randy Steffen
Randy Steffen
Randy Steffen is an Americana style singer and songwriter. He is based in Bellevue, Kentucky. From the room in which he writes he can see, through the fog and on, the Cincinnati, Ohio skyline.

He is embarking on a solo career, releasing an album with songs written by him and meant to pay homage to other American singer/songwriters, such as John Prine, James Taylor, and Jim Croche.

Randy was born and raised in the hills of southern Campbell County near Alexandria, Kentucky. It is here where he began writing songs at an early age, attempting to craft music in the likes of his childhood hero, Garth Brooks. After college Randy spent a few years in Nashville, TN learning the craft of writing a good song by taking songwriting courses at Vanderbilt University as well as hanging out and writing with other writers in town. He moved back to Northern Kentucky and started a band with his high school buddies, a rock and roll group called "The Sleepin' Dogs." The group put out two full length albums. Randy now performs and co-writes for a Cincinnati-based band called, "Wilder."

Look for his FIRST solo EP, "The Pinehurst Motel," due out in early June 2017. Click the "contact" link now for pre-sale details.
