Having his music career pretty much begin as an accident after he played a couple of songs for his friends, Ryan Bingham is a critically acclaimed signer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Bingham’s unique voice that screams hard living is fitting for the type of political music and tough stories he records. He successfully used his rough-and-tumble upbringings to do something positive with his records. Bingham and his band The Dead Horses made the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 Chart and in the Top 10 on the Billboard Rock Album Chart for their third studio album, Junky Star.
Carolyn Mark is a raven-haired, boozy chanteuse. Raised in the Wild West (British Columbia, Canada, that is) by Saint Bernards, the teachings of The Aquarian Foundation, her English mother, Austrian father and Canadian brother, Carolyn has gone on (and on) to release seven or eight albums on the prestigious Mint Records label. Mark is a country girl with a wild streak. Her songs are performed acoustically, but she fills them with enough devilry and sly humor to draw you in to her bittersweet world completely as she sings of blonde nymphs in lace panties, tedious wives, racy mistresses and knives driven chestward.
