The label’s first disc, Greetings From Athens features 14 songs from eight must-watch up-and-comers, including soulful Southern rockers Tishamingo, solid-gold country junkies The Chasers, featuring Clay Leverett (Now It’s Overhead, Bright Eyes) and John Neff (Drive-By Truckers, Star Room Boys), The Bearfoot Hookers (winner 2006 Flagpole Athens Music Award for Best Country/Americana/Roots-Rock), Redneck Underground revivalists Conor Rand & the Red Dirt Band, Brian Connell & the Dickens, Andrew Nelson & the Shotgun Lovers, Ken Williams (with the Communion Winos), plus charged-up purveyors of American rock ’n’ roll, Last Picture Show.
