Taylor Wilton is a locally based natural entertainer with a bluesy voice and quirky lyrics. She has international recognition from Christina Aguilera and has recently released her debut Ep Words of Advice.

Tom Harrison burst onto the music scene in 2018 with his band Hugo Stranger and the Rattlers and has been making all kinds of noise ever since. After
releasing their debut album Against the Tide in 2021, and a newest single
‘Leaders’ in 2023, Harrison has found the time to release his debut single as a
solo artist. “How Long” was recorded at his home studio and inspiration came from an adventure he took with his wife Angela across North America
in their Chevy G10.
