Jordyn Pepper

1000 668 City Star Brewing

She is the perfect blend of organic, deep-mountain roots, folk (with a little splash of soft blues), rock and country.  Put it all together and you have the makings of an Americana artist.  Her name is Jordyn Pepper, and she has something to sing about. Recently signed to Howlin’ Dog Records Jordyn just released her freshman album “Mountain Rain.” Her first single “Back to My Roots” was released earlier this year followed by her second single “1862” both from the album. This Nashville based singer/songwriter is described by many as a breath of fresh air, with crystal-clear vocals and a uniqueness that only says, “That’s Jordyn Pepper.”

“We here at Howlin’ Dog hear shades of Loretta Lynn, Natalie Maines, Stevie Nicks and others in the lineage of great female singers, but most of all we hear Jordyn Pepper, weaving all of these threads into a seamless expression of a young woman venturing out into the world,” Don Richmond, engineer/producer at Howlin’ Dog, said.

Originally from Monte Vista, Colorado, Jordyn says growing up in a small town on a potato and barley farm with not much music influence was hard for a girl trying to find her voice.

“I would sing as much as I could whether it would be in church, driving the tractors in the fields or even in my room with a hairbrush,”  she said. “I would sing all the time! My mom would always say,  ’I hear a diamond in the rough,’ when I was singing.”

In her early years, Jordyn was very influenced by country music, mainly because that was the only radio station in her small town.  Her favorite group back then were the Dixie Chicks; which you can hear a little weave of their influence in some of the music she writes today.  Since moving to Nashville (and just plain growing up), she became more influenced by other groups and singer/songwriters such as Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, Patty Griffin, John Butler Trio, Led Zeppelin, and Mindy Smith.  You can hear a little of each of these artists — with  her own twist on them _— in her songs.  One of the highlights of Jordyn’s career was winning two years back to back the 2016 and 2017 Josie Music Awards for Individual Vocalist of the Year for Folk/Americana/Bluegrass.

Jordyn’s been hitting the road all summer on her first tour to promote her album “Mountain Rain.”  She’s had a blast meeting new faces and seeing great places.  Her tour continues into the fall and she is busy planning her next tour for the coming year.  If she is in your area come in and join the fun!  Find out why she plays her shows barefoot.  Join Jordyn’s mailing list to find out what’s happening and what’s in the future for her adventures.  She is your organic, free-spirited, barefoot hippie and her story continues to be written.

Andy Adams

800 533 City Star Brewing

Andy Adams is an Oklahoma City based musician who has been performing around the City and State for over ten years. Vocally he possesses a wide spectrum of range and a variety of tone. He uses these aspects to add vivid and dramatic effect to enhance the mood and movement of the stories in his songs’. In combination with his guitar work this takes his narratives into enchanting tone poems. The authentic vocal commitment and scope of the narrative brings the listener out of the mundane and into a new world full of possibility.

Andy’s guitar techniques incorporate the essential Delta Blues style with a definitive Americana slant into a modern tradition of folkie fusion. The expanse of the rhythm spans the distance between the thunk of a chain gangs chuck and the winds’ long kiss as it whispers in the willows on a sultry summer night.

Many of his lyrical textures are literate self-contained accounts of everyday people with everyday problems. Each composition complete in soul and story in its own personal universe. Some of his more personal songs are boldly romantic in this time of shallow detachment and project a serious understanding of the love that makes relationships function without stress.

Andy Adams is an attractive bundle of talent. He can stand with the best vocally, as well as, on guitar, bass, harmonica.
