About BJ Barham: Best known as the frontman of North Carolina alt-country outfit American Aquarium, singer/songwriter B.J. Barham has spent much of his career delivering rugged, earthy roots rock in the vein of Whiskeytown and Drive-By Truckers. A native of Reidsville, North Carolina, Barham formed the group in 2006 and, over the course of a decade, built American Aquarium's reputation from regional up-and-comers to acclaimed, internationally recognized act thanks to records like 2012's Jason Isbell-produced Burn. Flicker. Die. and 2015's Wolves. Inspired by the November 2015 terrorist attacks at a Parisian nightclub, Barham -- who was, at the time, on tour in nearby Belgium -- quickly wrote a new batch of acoustic-led songs that would eventually become Rockingham, his solo debut. In early 2016, with co-producer Bradley Cook, he and a handpicked crew of musicians recorded the new material in a couple of marathon sessions and the album was released later that year.

About Taylor Leonhart: Taylor Leonhardt (lynn-heart) is a singer/songwriter from Raleigh, North Carolina. She was raised in a small Texas town, here she learned her first guitar chord and a healthy respect for the founding mothers and fathers of country music. It's that respect which now informs her own work - a blend of folk, Americana, and pop that tips its hat to the great songwriters of the past while still living very much in the present. Taylor released her debut EP in October 2015 titled Truest Things. Her infectious sing-along melodies deliver thoughtful, inventive lyrics that deal with everything from singleness to suffering, failure to faith.
