About the musicians:
Mark Stuart
As a sideman, Mark Edgar Stuart has toured with Grammy winner Alvin
Youngblood Hart, Jack Oblivian, and John Paul Keith and cut two records
with singer-songwriter Cory Branan. With little fuss or fanfare he
became the go-to bass player for an elite group of record producers
and artists. In 2010, he put down his bass, picked up a guitar, and
started writing songs he never thought anybody outside his family
would ever hear. It’s possible nobody ever would have heard them
either, if not for the encouragement of his colleagues. His debut
earned him “Record Of The Year” by The Memphis Flyer. Mark soaks in
details like a sponge, and spending so much time in the company of
strong songwriters, it was only a matter of time before these humble,
humorous and, and sometimes heartbreaking stories found a way to get
out.

Brandon Kinder
Kinder, raised in – and now returned to – Memphis, has spent all of his
adult life in music. Forming The Rocketboys during college in Abilene,
TX, he and the group moved to Austin thereafter, gaining much critical
praise for their EPs and albums. They continue to grow, having
recently toured the US for the sixth time, as well as a
soon-to-be-repeated tour of Germany. However, along the way, and in
search of a more personal voice Kinder took a handful of demos and
released a solo project, “The Wealthy West Volume 1.” Musically, The
Wealthy West sits between the storied troubadours of the ’60s and
modern solo artists such as Bon Iver and Father John Misty; there is a
gritty quality to his delicate voice – with just enough pain hidden
behind fragile beauty to keep the listener guessing.

Josh Cosby
It was a dark night, like many before it in Memphis. Joshua
Andrew Cosby walked home from rehearsal with his guitar, case-less,
slung over his back. A local homeless man flagged him down, not for
money but for a story. He explained to Cosby how he had written a song
about his ex-wife Micey. There, on that dimly lit street occurred an
exchange, two men playing each other songs of heartbreak and the
ultimate sacrifice. Upon parting ways, this man revealed his name to
be Star. That name became the fixture for one of Memphis’ most
inventive bands: Star & Micey.
