For Shane Jackman, music and life are inseparable and he has an insatiable passion for both. His music has been called "Sophisticoustic," referring to what Acoustic Guitar Magazine called, his unique "sagebrush sound." Growing up in Salt Lake City, the second of nine children, Shane spent cool summer nights outside his window on the roof, playing guitar to the sound of the creek behind his house. After majoring in fine arts at Southern Utah University he, packed his VW bus, and drove to Massachusetts where he tended polo horses and lived in a hay loft to make ends meet while getting his start in front of the discriminating East Coast coffeehouse crowds. Before long, Shane's reputation as an insightful songwriter and engaging performer earned him gigs with artists like Michael Martin Murphy, Peter Paul and Mary, Shawn Colvin, Marty Stewart, Trisha Yearwood, the Mavericks, Pete Seeger and Howard Jones. Since that time he has been a moving force in the national acoustic singer-songwriter world. Surpassing 150 concerts a year in the college theaters, festivals and grass roots halls, Shane has amassed a substantial national following.

Newspapers, music magazines and the industry's leading songwriters all praised Shane's lyrical ease and rich melodies. Looking West likewise received high acclaim. On the road, in the middle of his hectic touring pace, while selling CDs out of his trunk at colleges, cafes and clubs around the nation and amassing an underground following of students and music lovers, Shane found his rhythm as a musician. With his 5th album, Equilibrium, (Highway Records), he found his balance as he followed his passion for a life intertwined with both music and family.

Monster Mike Welch is one of the East Coast's best-loved blues guitarists and, at 33 years old, already a twenty-year veteran of the international blues scene. As frontman or as the guitarist for New England blues legends Sugar Ray and the Bluetones, Mike has toured North America and Europe, and made several acclaimed recordings. As a precocious 11-year-old he was invited to join local blues jams, working alongside Ronnie Earl, Luther "Guitar Jr" Johnson, Matt Murphy and Johnny Copeland. At 13, Mike Welch opened the bill at the Cambridge House of Blues, sharing a stage with Junior Wells, Joe Walsh and actor Dan Aykroyd. It was the latter who gave him his nickname, "Monster Mike." By the time he released his first CD three years later (These Blues Are Mine / Tone-Cool), he had already played with blues legends like Junior Wells, James Cotton, and Johnny Copeland, and won the 1995 Boston Music Award for Best Blues Act. The rest of the 90's found Mike touring North America and Europe, and featured in USA Today, People, Entertainment Tonight, CNN, and NPR. In 2001, Mike joined his longtime heroes Sugar Ray & The Bluetones, establishing a deep creative partnership in the blues that continues to this day. Their 2011 recording Evening garnered five Blues Music Award nominations, including Album of the Year and Blues Band of the Year. Mike's varied career has seen him lauded as a teen virtuoso, valued as a supportive sideman, and respected as a maturing blues artist. Recent years have found Mike dividing his time between Sugar Ray & The Bluetones, guest stints (Duke Robillard, Nick Moss, Johnny Winter, Darrell Nulisch and more) and his own work in the international blues scene.

"Amy's voice hits you like a refreshing warm breeze, her perfect diction and crystal clear tone seemingly effortless and at the same time passionate. Her unique voice is as warm as her personality, and perfectly suited to bluegrass, country, as well as any style she cares to sing." --British Bluegrass News In my humble opinion, Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters rate right up there with the best of the best. Amy has a wonderfully expressive voice, a lively stage presence, and the band is absolutely first-rate. Resophonic guitarist Roger Williams is a master of his instrument, and his son, JD Williams, plays mandolin as well as any of the young firebrand musicians now attracting national attention. I highly recommend Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters to any venue owner, concert or festival promoter; and to any music fan who enjoys a top-quality concert experience.
