As technology rules the sound of the day, it’s good to be reminded how powerfully a single voice can transmit deep emotion. Kentucky singer-songwriter Joan Shelley made one of the most beautiful records with just her voice and two guitars. You can hear the influence of Appalachian folk music in her songs while her clear bell-like voice has its roots in British folk, the sort made popular by artists like Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention in the late ’60s and early ’70s — another time when the dominant music was filled with electricity and texture. The intertwined melodies Shelley and her guitar partner Nathan Salsburg produce are refreshing breaths of Kentucky air in a world of compressed drums and overly processed vocals.

The pair officially began performing as a duo in 2012, with several concerts in Paris, and they recently had a successful tour in Europe.

Lee Reh is a passionate R&B and Pop vocalist whose voice was birthed in the confines of a refugee camp in Thailand. Lee Reh moved to the United States in 2009 in search of a better life. Lee Reh was awarded first place by Neil Lasher (SONY ATV Music Publisher), The GRAMMY Foundation, and the MusiCares Foundation for an original song he wrote titled “Fight”. Neil Lasher felt it was a great idea to award Lee Reh with “an incentive, a present, a reward for winning a song writing contest because as a music publisher we live for song writers”.
