JOHN PAUL KEITH / SHAWN WILLIAMS

**************************************

John Paul Keith

A 12-year veteran of the Memphis music scene, singer, songwriter, and guitarist John Paul Keith has four critically acclaimed solo albums, including his latest, Heart Shaped Shadow. The album was produced by Austin, Texas guitar legend Will Sexton for Last Chance Records, alongside In The Meantime, the debut full-length from Motel Mirrors, a collaboration between Keith, Sexton, and singer/bassist Amy LaVere, which reached #21 on the Americana Albums chart in 2018.

In addition to his own projects, John Paul recently appeared on the tribute album Red Hot: A Memphis Celebration of Sun Records, with proceeds going to St. Jude. In 2017, John Paul had the honor of performing with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons at the Memphis Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Roy Orbison. That same year, John Paul also contributed a song to the Don Bryant album from Fat Possum Records, Don’t Give Up on Love, which was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2018 Blues Music Awards.

John Paul Keith just completed his third headlining tour of Europe and continues to tour the US regularly. His fifth studio album is planned for 2020.

Shawn Williams

New Orleans’ pioneering voice in “alt-rocka countrybilly serial killer blues,” Shawn Williams sounds like the result of a dirtier-minded Elvis deciding to get it on in the back of some roadhouse saloon with one of those sad-eyed cowboy types that would rather be drinking alone.

Her debut album Shadow (March 2017) is a skillfully-mastered collection of originals that moves seamlessly from old-school R&B-inflected rockers to softer, wistful numbers that evoke the broken-hearted melancholia of the desert. Idiosyncratic, catchy, and rich with local talent, the tracks showcase Williams’ impressive musicianship and unique capabilities as a songwriter. New Orleans' OffBeat Magazine says, "it's an impressively mature debut album".

Williams' sophomore release Motel Livin' (June 2018) "throbs with some of 2018's best-written songs," says Europe's Country Music People magazine.

On recording as in live performance, she conveys a sense of rawness, a depth of feeling, and a lack of pretension that set her apart from the rest of the city’s pool of talented up-and-coming musicians.

Shawn has opened for national touring artists such as the Queen of Rockabilly - Wanda Jackson, Corey Smith, The Accidentals, Todd O'Neill, Loverboy, and more.

Aside from her own music, she is also the founder of the all-female Elvis tribute band, Pelvis Breastlies.
