The Tunesmiths


"The greatest band in Louisville." 
-Kyle Meredith 
Music Director
WFPK 91.9fm

"The Tunesmiths are one of Louisville's fastest growing bands. These four craftsmen have made a name for themselves with high energy performances and creating unforgettable music at an incredible pace. Their genre-bending, timeless material combines the raw energy and power of rock n’ roll guitar, the smooth vocals of R&B, and the catchy rhythms of Soul. This group is a “must see” for music-goers looking for a great show and inventive music. The Tunesmiths remind us that true musicians and songwriters are still making waves in the independent music world, and you can find them right here in Louisville."
-Courier Journal





Misty Mountain String Band




Drawing influence from old-time music, Americana, bluegrass, and songs of labor and protest, Misty Mountain String Band doesn’t stray far from their upbringings in Kentucky and West Virginia. Formed as a pickup group for an old-time camp revival, MMSB has evolved into a professional band that’s as at home playing with the Louisville Philharmonia Orchestra as at bluegrass festivals with Americana favorites. The group connects with fans of folk music around the world, sharing unique string band music written for today but informed by tradition. MMSB has universal appeal, combining high energy with charismatic storytelling and a warm, conversational attitude.

Rhyan Sinclair (with Members of All The Little Pieces)


Rhyan Sinclair has been writing music since the age of 8 and started the band All the Little Pieces when she was 11.  Since then, the band has recorded two full albums of her original music and played dozens of shows.


At 10, she sang a Norah Jones song on stage to Norah herself on the state of the Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour.  Recently, Rhyan was asked to perform on the WoodsSongs stage again, but this time it was one of her own songs.


Her main musical influences are Norah Jones, Maria McKee, Cyndi Lauper and Jack White, but she has grown up listening to and studying a wide variety of music in all genres.


She has also been working in film since a young age and is experienced in acting, writing, producing and editing, with several credits on imdb. These experiences have helped shape her into a very visual artist and her songs evoke strong images and rich emotions. The video for the title track of her recent solo EP, Cardboard City, ties all those elements together with a feast for the eyes. She recorded all the instruments on the song, designed the set and shot and edited the music video. This is the sort of project she is interested in doing more of, for herself and in collaboration with other artists.


Rhyan is an ASCAP songwriter with her own publishing company, Little Haunted Girl Music.


Her YouTube Channel, Fabulously Weird, reflects her love for music, comedy and makeup, as well as tackling some deeper issues, such as social exclusion.  Her performing style ranges from energetic and animated, to contemplative and emotionally raw.  Whether she’s performing with All the Little Pieces, as a solo act or in one of her videos, she will always either make you laugh, make you think or make you dance.
