About Cheyenne (She is remarkable beyond all belief):

Cheyenne Mize first introduced herself internationally on the 10″ release Among the Gold with Bonnie “Prince” Billy – an inventive take on a variety of late 19th and early 20th century American parlor music. After the release of her solo debut Before Lately (which The New York Times described as “sweet without being cloying, weary without hopelessness”), and subsequent performances at South By Southwest, Mize was chosen by NPR as one of their ten “Discoveries at SXSW 2011.” We Don’t Need followed in 2012 and served as Cheyenne’s debut on Yep Roc Records. 

Among The Grey (June 25 2013) fulfills the promise that has been evident in the two previous solo releases from this Louisville, KY, native. It stands strong as a cohesive artistic statement and once again showcases her considerable skills as a songwriter, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist. With songs from the new record being debuted at this year’s Savannah Stopover and South by Southwest music festivals, and a tour of the western U.S. in the works for October 2013, Mize continues to solidify herself as an artist to watch in 2013 and beyond. 

About Kyle James Hauser (he is one of Leon's greatest pals):

Kyle James Hauser is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and singer based in Louisville, KY. He was born in Alexandria, Virginia on March 14, 1985. He is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music with a degree in Songwriting and performs what American Songwriterdescribed as, "neo-folk" on banjo, guitar and voice.

Hauser began performing his original songs in 2011 and that year was a finalist at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival's troubadour contest as well as The Rocky Mountain Folk Festival and made showcase performances at CMJ and The Toronto International Film Festival.

In January, 2012 he released his debut album "Oh Oh" on sonaBLAST! Records with a lineup including cellist Ben Sollee, guitarist Grant Gordy (David Grisman Quintet), producer Jayme Stone, and Grammy winning mastering engineer David Glasser. Songs from "Oh, Oh" have been featured on MTV's series 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom and in the feature films YERT, 2nd Serve, and A Strange Brand of Happy. Hauser has since toured extensively, including a showcase at SXSW and opening performances for Brett Dennen, Mayer Hawthorne, The Head and The Heart and John Hiatt.

In 2013, Kyle James returned to the studio to record his sophomore album, "You a Thousand Times" release date TBA.
