Dylan Earl
Dylan Earl
Post-country/Western from Fayetteville, Arkansas

Dylan Earl was born in Lake Charles, LA and made his way up to Arkansas after being displaced by hurricanes in 2005. Since then, he’s been naturalized by the natural state and prefers the quiet of the Ozarks over the big city music scenes like Austin and Nashville.

Dylan began touring in 2011 with an old band he co-founded called Swampbird. Since launching his solo career in 2014 he’s released “Blessing in Disguise”, a 4-track EP produced by Daniel Romano in Ridgeville, Ontario, and “New Country To Be”, which is his debut effort created, recorded and produced in Arkansas by Will Eubanks and Chris Moore at East Hall Recording in Fayetteville. He and his band, The Reasons Why, have toured tirelessly in front of this debut LP covering the United States coast-to-coast over 5 times including a few appearances in Canada, the UK and parts of western Europe and Scandinavia.

You can often find Dylan and his boys out on the road anywhere between honky-tonks to opera houses to dingy basements. There is no improper place for his music. In fact, the closer he can get to the outer rim of normality the better. He always appreciates hospitality and a warm meal goes farther than most would expect. He prefers sleeping outside, Hamm’s beer, Thin Lizzy, the company of his peers and good attitudes.

Willi Carlisle
Folk, Americana, Singer-Songwriter from Fayetteville AR

Willi Carlisle is, according to The Washington Post, "powerful...both down-home and brainy." With years of collecting folklore, playing or calling square dances, and working in the avant-garde, Willi Carlisle Goehring is a multi-faceted writer, performer, and instrumentalist.

With a style forged in the fire of Ozark oldtime music and his ever-growing collection of antique music, Carlisle’s musical stories hoot, stomp, and saunter through joys and troubles uniquely southern and timelessly true. Equally comfortable on banjo, fiddle, and guitar, Carlisle has earned accolades for his versatility with performances at the Ozark Folk Center, the Fayetteville Roots Festival, Thacker Mountain Radio, and Fringe Festivals across the country, where he has been lauded with awards like "Best Show" (Orlando Fringe) and the "Meryl Streep Acting Award" (Portfringe).

While his big frame and expressive voice draw comparison to old balladeers and bluesmen, Willi sings new songs for the oldest reasons: love, heartache, and joy. People who watch and listen will find that he laughs and sheds a tear onstage almost as often as his audiences do, fire- and-brimstone proof of larger-than-life songs and stories.

His debut EP, “Too Nice to Mean Much” is available now!
