Sean Geil – A founding member of Cincinnati’s The Tillers and has spent the last fourteen years traveling the country writing songs and sharing the stage with everyone from Doc Watson to Guy Clark to Ramblin’ Jack Elliot. Along the way, he’s recorded six albums with the band, toured every region of the U.S., and played all over the U.K.
A rare talent for storytelling that demonstrates a keen intellect, sensitive perspective, and altruistic instinct.. His songs eek out a place of their own, uniquely poised on the contrasting verge of frustration and sorrow, or wistful memories. It’s evident on records, but especially in-person, the living, breathing soul of his work, delivered as a conversation with his audience, a plea to his country, and a thank you to his friends and family.

Joe’s Truck Stop – From a ridge in the Ohio River Valley, on a front porch where Kentucky’s visible through the winters bare trees, Joe’s Truck Stop conspires over a smoking blend of Bluegrass, Honky Tonk, Western Swing, and whatever else finds itself inhaled and manifested by way of a wood box, and steel wire…Years digesting so much of the Country Blues lexicon and travelling the country learning the numerous styles of fiddlers, writers, and travelers alike has led to the original music that comes by way of Joe’s Truck Stop. The songs are stories of living on the road, love, temptation, heartbreak, family, banjo pickin’ tobacco spittin’ women, gas station sushi, and much more…
