American music sprang from the South. Every note BRITT GULLY sings proves it! Britt is a singer/songwriter from Cow Creek, Mississippi. He plays real country music…Rockabilly, Gospel, HonkyTonk-Twang and he will make you believe it all! He grew up listening to Jimmie, Hank and Waylon and has an innate feel for true American music. It’s got to be real and it has to come from the soul.
For the last decade he’s portrayed Jimmie Rodgers and sang his songs from New Orleans to New York and points in between to rave reviews. He recently recorded an album, Jimmie Rodgers’ Guitar, using Jimmie’s original 1927 Martin, that has garnered worldwide attention.
His musical talent is enhanced through his masterful storytelling, as he shares with his audience a wealth of facts, anecdotes and just plain good stories. Britt has a deep respect for the land, the music and the people who make it. “Genuine” is the perfect word for Britt and his homespun way, weaving his love for the songs, the romances, the drama and history into a musical performance that grips the heart.
MARY-ELAINE JENKINS’ music sounds like a premonition. Like sweat and perfume. Bourbon and saltwater. Spanish moss on ruins. A product of her upbringing amidst the canopy of her Lowcountry family tree, Mary-Elaine carries herself as if she had never left the humidity of the coast. But she did. First Washington DC, then Spain, and now Brooklyn. Venturing far from home, time and space removed from her roots have further distilled Mary-Elaine’s distinctly Southern charm.
Arriving in New York City in 2013, Mary-Elaine played in venues all over town and surrounded herself with a creative network that would eventually include producer / engineer Thom Beemer. Working together out of Good Child Music Studios, they were joined by Cat Popper (Ryan Adams), Lawson White (My Brightest Diamond, Tony Trischka), JJ Appleton, and Dave Hassell, to make a record as well traveled as it is rooted in the musical traditions of the Southern coast. Her debut album, Hold Still, was released in September 2018 via Good Child Music.
