Louise Mosrie grew up in McEwen, TN on a cattle farm – riding horses and writing poetry. She began writing songs after college while working in TV/radio in Knoxville. She moved back to the Nashville area in 2004 and began co-writing with country, bluegrass, and folk artists and writers. Louise had a major creative breakthrough in 2007 when she had a fortuitous co-writing session with famed Americana producer and writer, Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams). They wrote the song for a documentary film by IU professor, Ron Osgood, called “My Vietnam, Your Iraq” which was broadcast on PBS stations nationwide.
Louise has won top awards in songwriting at Kerrville Folk Festival, Wildflower! Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Her first album debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ chart in January 2010 and #11 for the year. She played at The Bluebird Café in Nashville, Club Passim in Boston and The Birchmere in Washington DC. On her latest album, Lay It Down, she collaborated with folk-rock songwriter/producer, Cliff Eberhardt, who envisioned minimalist arrangements and restrained production.
“Louise Mosrie may well be the brightest young folk-oriented artist to emerge from Nashville in many a year.”– Rich Warren, WFMT-FM, The Midnight Special, Chicago
Marc Douglas Berardo
Singer-songwriter, performer and keen observer, Marc Douglas Berardo’s songs are sharply drawn and cast a net on unusual and beguiling characters and places that bring to mind James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, Guy Clark, and Steely Dan with a touch of Mark Twain or Hunter S. Thompson. His songs have been recognized at many prestigious national festivals and events such as The South Florida Folk Festival, The Wildflower Art and Music Festival, and the legendary Kerrville Folk Festival. He has opened for or shared the stage with The Doobie Brothers, Little Feat, John Hiatt, Martin Sexton, Eric Taylor, Kevin Welch, Kim Richey, Will Kimbrough, and David Olney among others.
Berardo has performed at many renowned venues all over including, The Town Crier,(NY), Club Passim (MA) Narrows Center for The Arts (MA), In the Round at The Bluebird Cafe (TN), Freight and Salvage (CA), The Emelin Theater (NY), and Caffe Lena (NY), Ramshead OnStage (MD), among others.
Berardo’s interview and live performance featured on the Sirius/ XM Satellite Radio show The Village was voted one of the best of the year by listeners. “Berardo takes you to a place within yourself to make changes you want to see in the world.” — Mary Jane Twohy, Sirius XM. No Depression Magazine called his last CD Whalebone: “sincere, fluid, charming and above all gripping.”
