Keith Secola and Band of Wild Indians - A powerful performer. Keith Secola is an icon and ambassador of Native music. He is one of the most influential artists in the field today. Rising from the grassroots of North America, he is a songwriter of the people. Critics have dubbed him as the Native versions of both Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen. NDN Kars (Indian cars), his most popular song is considered the contemporary Native American anthem, achieving legendary status and earning him a well deserved cult following. It has been the number one requested song on tribal radio since the 1992. In 2011, he was inducted into the Native Music Hall of Fame.
Paul Thorn (solo) - Longtime favorite WMNF live artist/singer and storyteller; in solo mode his homespun charm and self-deprecating humor are on full display
Selwyn Birchwood Band - Winner of 2013 International Blue Challenge in Memphis: out of 230 entries he won Best Artist and Best Guitarist
Mercy Brothers - A new group of veteran musicians from southwest Louisiana playing a very infectious brand of Louisiana revival music and hillbilly gospel; in concert they rock!
American Aquarium -Whether you call it alt-country, Americana, or roots rock, one thing is for certain about this Raleigh NC band: Their music is a fresh voice that borrows from many forms of the Amreserican songbook
Applebutter Express - Utterly charming ukes and vocals from this boy-girl led group, fortified with fiddle and upright bass, very popular with the jamband crowd, featuring stick-in-your-head originals and really clever reinterpretations of covers.
Ray Bonneville - A hard driving, blues influenced, song and groove man who often writes about people who live on the fringe of society. Ray’s vibe is loose and soulful. With a greasy guitar style, horn-like harmonica phrasing, smoky vocal style and pulsing foot percussion he immediately rivets audiences.
Rebekah Pulley and the Reluctant Prophets -The St. Pete singer-songwriter is a tireless performer who’s taken the stage at just about every venue and festival you can name. Her new CD, Tralala, infuses her trademark smokey, Southern folk with elements of jazz and the blues and it has been one of the most played CDs on WMNF in 2013.
Daria and the Hip Drops The New Orleans based group has its roots in upbeat indie pop and rock, with influences of steel drums and Caribbean music, heavy funk bass lines, and the occasional electro-synth sample. They are most frequently compared to Lily Allen, or an unexpected blend of No Doubt colliding with Regina Spektor.
