"I heartily recommend…superb."- TOM PAXTON
"An incredibly good writer"- ERIC TAYLOR
"Tim Grimm should be considered an Indiana treasure."- STEVE CLARKE-Acoustic Planet- Canada

right up there with the best in the genre." CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
"A remarkable performer, he wears his songs like a second skin. Unbridled passion and poetry." Rich Warren- The Midnight Special
"Grimm travels the highways and byways of rural America, searching every dark corner and crevice off the beaten path to find some sort of beauty and purity."

Cara Jean Marcy
Cara Jean Marcy released her debut album, Goodnight Charlotte in 2010, with cellist Grover Parido. Since then, it's garnered national press and has received mentions on numerous local Top Ten lists, including Best Local Album (Roots/Acoustic) 2010, included charting on the Village Voice's (NYC) Pazz and Jop 2010 listing. Nuvo's Rob Nichols' says, "Wahlers works inside a pleasing Joni Mitchell/Ricki Lee Jones/Emmylou Harris template - more West coast than rural - though a hint of Indiana in her voice helps anchor a sound more organic than shiny."

"Chicago singer-songwriter and recent Maine transplant Heather Styka’s songs are as fresh as they are rooted in the folk and Americana tradition, delivered by a warm and soulful voice. Also a poet and writer, Styka has
an instinct for lyrics that are smart and unexpected but never cryptic, analyzing the importance of moments, places, and relationships. In addition to numerous songwriting awards, her 2011 release Lifeboats for Atlantis received critical praise, hitting #3 on the national FOLK-DJ charts. As “one of the more original of the many contemporary singer-songwriters touring the US” (Tom May, River City Folk), Heather Styka stands at the forefront of her generation of songwriters."
