Barry Richman is considered one of –if not the best–guitar players in Atlanta, having played with or recorded with some of the great like Clapton, John Lee Hooker, Little Feat, and Skynrd to name a few. Barry’s originals are a mix of psychedelic-blues-rock fusion, matching that of his Idol Hendrix.
Here is a recent interview I did with Barry.
For Kris Youmans, coastal country living was the beginning of her songwriting, and now recreated on the backroads of West Georgia, where good country music is born & raised. Kris’ Song “Rocking Chair” was picked for independent film Going Green, which will be released soon. Kris was nominated in 2010, 2011, and now in 2012 for Female Vocalist of the Year through Georgia-Country.com
Paige McCauley is a 15-year-old state and national award winning singer/songwriter. She’s recently released her all original CD The Little Things. She’s just recorded three more singles she wrote about topics such as relationships hoped for, struggles some teens face, and her Christian faith. Paige uses her talent also for a number of charity organizations. She was honored in 2010 by her original single “The Little Things” being a winner in the national AMTC Singer/Songwriter competition and her song being featured on their benefit album. This year, she also was a winner with her song “When She Cries.” You can purchase these songs at www.amtcmusic.com, where the proceeds will go to Project Dream Repair. She also has performed at charity functions raising money for the homeless and cancer victims. Finally, she sings regularly with the Praise Band at her church.
The Highlife Band is a high energy band playing Rock & Roll, Blues, Country & Redneck Rock with a dose of humor thrown in. The set list will cover a lot of ground with anything from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Jimi Hendrix to Hank, Jr. to Pearl Jam to Merle Haggard to Collective Soul.
Daniel Williams is a young man with strong roots in gospel and country traditions, with a voice that continues to project all of this on every song he sings -whether it’s a Dwight Yoakum or Waylon cover, or an original tune. Daniel watched and played along with his grandfather, uncle, and his father as a kid. His fingers were too small for the guitar in the beginning, so his grandaddy Ernest Williams, Jr. introduced the mandolin to young Daniel. He learned that the heart and soul of country music could be found in gospel singing and playing in church.
Meals On Wheels Of Coweta (MOWOC) is a non-profit community supported organization that receives no funding from local, state or federal agencies. MOWOC applies for grants that are offered through United Way and Meals On Wheels Association of America to subsidize private donations. MOWOC hosts fundraisers throughout the year to raise awareness, recruit volunteers and raise money to support and grow the organization.
MOWOC’s ongoing goal is to serve more clients and create more programs that promote independent living for older residents of Coweta County, those 60 and up.
