2019 Lineup

The one constant in Dalton & the Sheriffs' remarkable rise from three-hour sets in the barrooms of Boston, to national stages such as CMA Fest, is the band's authenticity.

Brian Scully (vocals/acoustic guitar), Jon Silva (lead guitar), James Zaner (drums), Sam Bouve (bass) and Ryan Jackson (keys/guitars) rip through shows with frenetic energy, perhaps best described as country music, tinged with Americana heartland vibes, and played with a bar-friendly edge-of-punk rowdiness. Everyone sings along. The patrons are as much a part of the show as the band itself. The result is a live band that manages to make every show -- from small clubs to the largest of festivals -- feel a little like a reunion of like-minded souls at their favorite local bar.

Todd Thibaud is a Vermont born, Boston based Singer-Songwriter who's songs are a slice of what life is really like...the pains and pleasures, love lost and life reborn. Using songwriters like Elvis Costello, Neil Finn, Johnny Cash and John Hiatt for inspiration, Thibaud has built a sound that is entirely his own. His music is meshed with elements of Americana, Folk, Country and Roots Pop Rock, making it seem at once familiar and new. After fronting his band, "Courage Brothers" and releasing two independent records in the early '90's (Something Strong & Wood), Thibaud went solo and recorded two critically lauded albums for Doolittle Records (now New West Records), 1997's "Favorite Waste of Time" (produced by Bostonian musician Kevin Salem) and 1999's "Little Mystery" (Co-produced with Jim Scott: Wilco, Crowded House, Kathleen Edwards). In addition to various live recordings and DVD's he's since released several additional studio recordings, including 2002's "Squash", 2005's "Northern Skies" (Both produced by Adam Steinberg- Patty Griffin, Dixie Chicks) and 2009's "Broken".

Whether assuming their roles as DJs, tastemakers, facilitators, or natural entertainers, brotherly DJ duo, the SuperSmashBroz are known to have had their hands in all things Boston music throughout the past few years. Their extensive experience as dot-connectors within their hometown has greatly assisted the recent surge of energy within Boston's budding music scene, even leading the SmashBroz to be named Boston DJs of the Year in 2017 and 2018. The duo's current portfolio of collaborations includes work with fellow Boston artists Michael Christmas and Cousin Stizz as well as renowned acts Metro Boomin, DRAM, Nebu Kiniza, and What So Not, among others.

"Boston's Jesse Dee is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing soul man -a modern day trailblazer inspired by the old school. Dee's passion is exploring and updating soul music for contemporary audiences. With his warm and honest sound, his instantly memorable melodies and positive, slice-of-life lyrics (evoking the heyday of the Brill Building songwriters), he accomplishes just that.

Will Dailey is an acclaimed independent recording artist, performer and artist advocate. His sound has been described as a venn diagram of multiple genre with a rich vintage vibe that has a firm appreciation of AM rock, pop and big hooks. Dailey's albums are met with stellar reviews, have 10 million spins on Spotify, top 20 on the national Billboard Heat Seeker chart and won Album of the Year in the Boston Music Awards, New England Music Awards and Improper Bostonian Magazine. Dailey, who is already a three-time winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter also won Artist of the Year in 2014 and best male vocalist in 2015 and 2016.

After moving to North Shore Massachusetts from the Midwest in 2007, Annie Brobst has become one of the most sought after and awarded country artists in New England.   Her debut EP "Ghost" is currently available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and a variety of other online markets. This is a warm introduction to her Pop/Country sound and early songwriting. Annie's first full album "My First Rodeo" was released in June of 2018, with multiple single releases leading up to then. Her sound and songwriting are a unique mix of Miranda Lambert, Sugarland, Jason Isbell with her own flare of pop, country, rock, and americana.

With a debut album "For Now" winning Album of the Year by the Limelight Music Awards, Johnson continues to push ahead, writing enthusiastically honest songs. With influences evident in her music, her and her band's sound pays tribute to seventies punk and new wave, yet remains authentically their own. Johnson is known for her straight-forward lyrics, driving, four on the floor melodies, and her band, the Cure-Alls, inimitable live energy. The band's "heartening anthemic rock" has proven to stand out amongst their contemporaries. In April of 2017 Johnson and the band won Boston's legendary annual Rock and Roll Rumble (previous winners include 'Til Tuesday and The Dresden Dolls), and in December took home the New Act of the Year award at Boston's 30th Annual Music Awards at the House of Blues. Determined to share her music with the world, Carissa Johnson continues to tour and play shows throughout the U.S. and now Europe - (with or without the Cure-Alls) currently in promotion of their latest full-length release, "Talk Talk Talk."

Session Americana (Boston) is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk bank in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings, a harmonica case fire damages when Jack's bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in the freewheeling modern hootenanny. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that's not accidental or easily won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American "song bag".
