LIVE with John Heasly and Jerry Schroeder

"Once I was taking a break during a performance, talking to some dear friends, Rob and Lori Reed. Rob said 'I was just saying to Lori, listening to John is like having a conversation with an old friend.' Rob has since passed on but that stuck with me. I can't imagine a nicer thing to say about someone's music. I hope, if you listen to any of my music, you'll feel something like that too. What could be better?"

Live with Angela Meyer

Angela Meyer has been performing professionally since she was just 16 years old, staying true to “writing songs for empty rooms & broken hearts in hopes to fill them up”.  A storyteller with a passion for her listeners, Angela pulls in the crowd with a sweet voice and brutal honesty.  She isn’t afraid to tackle heavy topics within her songwriting, but also pokes at the humor in everyday life.  Her first love was the horse, and she knew nothing about this “western music” until committing a crime she swore to never do- falling in love with a cowboy.  Now she has fallen in love again, this time with the tradition & respect within a community of folks passionate for preserving this beautiful way of life.
