About the Artists
All of these singer songwriters are (or at least have been) based in Tallahassee, Florida. Producer and songwriter Del Suggs has numerous recordings available, and several of more of these artist have CDs available: Ric J. Edmiston, Drew Reid, Mark Leadon, Carrie Hamby, Schef Wright, and Reed Mahoney.

Many of the remaining artists are completing projects that should be available soon: Mimi Hearn, Howard Rubin, Bill Richeson, Julia Helen, Paula held, Ben Edmund, and Danica Winter. This disc is a terrific sampling of the North Florida singer songwriter scene.

Produced by songwriter Del Suggs, this compilation showcases the variety of musical styles within the "Americana" genre, from roots-based acoustic, folk, and bluegrass to jazz-flavored pop and rockabilly.

Opening with Mimi Hearnâs driving "Howl At The Moon," Charlie Harveyâs poignant tale "Halfway To Birmingham" flows smoothly into Howard Rubinâs life lesson "Learn How To Roll." Then, Bill Richesonâs "No More Lonesome Roads" adds a hint of bluegrass, leading to fingerstyle-guitar monster Ric Edmistonâs "Monkeys" shift into overdrive. Merelyn Falciglia then croons "Sunny Day Blues" with its traditional pop flavor, followed by the very contemporary acoustic styling of Julia Helenâs "This House Is Dark." Drew Reidâs moving Civil War ballad "Song of Sullivan Ballou" moves easily into Mark Leadonâs "Mountain Road," showcasing his bluegrass sensibilities.

Next up is the truly original Carrie Hamby with "What Would Jesus Drive?" followed with the gut-wrenching story of a "Cargo of Heartache" by long-time Tallahassee guitarist Frank Graham. Paula held smoothes the ride with her jazzy-pop "Your Other Guinevere," fitting nicely into Schef Wrightâs beautifully arranged "Do You See The Moon?". "Oh, Papa" is the definitive Paul E. Katz song, finally recorded and perfectly captured, followed by Danica Winter clearly channeling Elvis with her song "What About Now?".

Producer Del Suggs presents his beautifully simple arrangement of "Thatâs How I Knew," then Ben Edmund breaks your heart with his "Man Of The House." Then to wrap it up, Reed Mahoney will crack you up with the suggestive innuendo of "Why Donât You Love Me Anymore?" (think Buffettâs "Why Donât We Get Drunk And ...").

The compilation was mastered by sound-guru Pete Winter at his world-class Winterstone Productions, and the cover art was designed and created by Laura Pichard-Murphy. This is the fourth compilation of Tallahassee artists produced by Suggs on his Cascades Recording Company label.
