Smash Mouth stands tall as a global phenomenon, a force to be reckoned with over its illustrious three-decade journey. From humble origins in San Jose, CA, they’ve transcended local curiosity, invaded national playlists, and evolved into international live phenoms. Smash Mouth, a name etched in gold as multi-platinum and Grammy-nominated pop-rock icons, has navigated the realms of legendary status with unparalleled finesse.

Their live shows are nothing short of spectacular—exciting, entertaining, and overflowing with hit-laden extravagance.

With music universally adored and an allure spanning wide, they can command any audience, anywhere in the world, leaving them clamoring for more every single time. Simply put, EVERYONE loves Smash Mouth.

A trove of international awards, accolades, and achievements over three decades cements Smash Mouth’s legacy.

Beyond massive international tours with icons like U2, Lenny Kravitz, *NSync, and KISS, Smash Mouth’s versatility shines through collaborations with showbiz legends ranging from Engelbert Humperdinck to George Clinton to Neil Diamond.

Sir Mix-A-Lot might be best known for Baby Got Back but, what most saw as a pop inspired track aimed at the mainstream was actually a song written about his distain for how Hollywood viewed & casted women of color in the 80s and early 90s. “Although there were exceptions (Phylicia Rashad, Diane Carrol, etc.) many women of color were cast as struggling prostitutes who doubled as police informants or streetwise single mothers struggling to make it in the ghetto and of course….maids.” -Sir Mix-A-Lot BGB was written in a way to poke at what were then the beauty police (Cosmo, Hollywood, TV, etc.) in way that would go almost unnoticed by those not hearing lines outside of “I like big butts”. By the time the powers that be figured it out, it was already #1 on the charts. But even before he struck crossover gold, Sir Mix-A-Lot was one of rap’s great D.I.Y. success stories. Coming from a city — Seattle — which at that time had a strictly local Hip Hop scene, Mix-A-Lot co-founded his own record label, promoted his music himself, produced and mixed all his own tracks, built his own studio by himself and essentially pulled himself up by the proverbial American bootstraps. Even before Baby Got Back, Mix-A-Lot was a platinum-selling album artist with a strong following in the hip-hop community, known for bouncy, danceable, bass-heavy tracks indebted to old-school electro. Even though Mix had sold over 2million units on an independent label, it took signing with Rick Rubin’s Def American label — to carry him into the mainstream.

With three straight platinum albums and a multi-platinum single, some still think he is a one hit wonder. Lyrically, his best material came after Baby Got Back. Songs like Poppi Grande, Daddy’s Home, Mob Style and the Nas West Coast remix of Where Are They Now to name a few. Posse on Broadway,” which referred to a street in Seattle pushed the album SWASS to platinum with minimal video or radio play. Contrary to popular belief, most of Mix’s sales were not in Seattle.

Also in 1989, Mix-A-Lot released his follow up album Seminar, which produced three charting singles in “Beepers,” “My Hooptie,” and “I Got Game”. All performed well on the rap singles chart, and helped Seminar become Mix-A-Lot’s second straight platinum album. Def American head Rick Rubin stepped in to offer him a major-label contract and Mix’s third album Mack Daddy gave us “Baby Got Back,” which became a pop phenomenon virtually from the moment MTV aired its provocative video (it was eventually consigned to evening- hours only).

When it comes to live performance Mix-A-Lot often publicly comments on his hatred for lip-syncing and refuses to lip-sync or rap over his own verses, but what he is least known for is one of his greatest strengths…. His business acumen. Owning publishing is something he preaches to artist often but, understanding the licensing process and how brands work is crucial when placing tracks. “Income diversification is a must in the entertainment industry… it’s the very thing that can make it easy to say no to degrading, stereotypical projects”

Olivia Harms was born Western Music royalty, but the rhinestone cowgirl has stepped out on her own to craft a sound that is equal parts Texas, Bakersfield, and Nashville country.

The daughter of Western Music Hall of Fame member Joni Harms, Olivia grew up on a 150-year-old ranch in Canby, OR, and made her first appearance on stage when she was two days old. Her mother had labor induced so she wouldn’t miss her show. Twenty-seven years later, Olivia is following in her mothers creative bootsteps and basing herself out of Granbury, TX.

Olivia’s second album “Rhinestone Cowgirl” was released in 2021. Produced by D. Scott Miller and recorded in Nashville, the 11-song collection calls out to the cowboys, name-drops George Strait, swings through Buckaroo territory and packs plenty of twang and steel guitar. Olivia co-wrote every song. “I was going for a very traditional country vibe, but with some Bakersfield style country-western swing to bring back honky-tonks.” Olivia explained.

Her artistic identity has been honed since she was an infant. The singer grew up performing on stages all over the world with her mother. Olivia remembers yodeling in Europe and singing “I Want to Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart” in New Zealand.” When she was 6 years old, Santa Claus delivered her first guitar and sparked her love of songwriting. Ten years later, at 16 years old, Olivia went to Nashville to record her first album.

After high school Olivia went to Oregon State University while further pursuing her music career, and her second passion of agriculture. She graduated college with a degree in agriculture business management and cattle production, then she dove headfirst into the music business. Olivia books her own shows, handles public relations, and manages all her social media accounts in addition to writing, recording and playing more than 200 shows a year. “I try to be a real one-woman show” she said.

When Olivia was ready to record her second album. She wrote songs with noted country writers including Wood Newton (The Oak Ridge Boys “Bobbie Sue,” Kenny Rogers “20 Years Ago”) and Dennis Morgan (Barbara Mandrell “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool,” Ronnie Milsap “Smoky Mountain Rain.”) From her autobiographical “Gypsy” to the lighthearted “Hey There Cowboy” and the deeply personal “Goodbye,” “Rhinestone Cowgirl” is Olivia Harms.

After the release of her second album in 2021 Olivia was ready to hit the ground running after her dreams. She has since relocated to Texas and has released two singles to Texas Red Dirt Radio. Her first single, “Neon Blue,” peaked at #29 on the Texas Top 100 Chart. Her highly anticipated second release, “Hey There Cowboy” debuted on the Texas Top 100 Chart after only 3 weeks and is on the rise!

Olivia has found her niche genre, playing music for western lifestyle and honky-tonk lovers. She has been recognized for her hard work and perseverance to stay true to herself and play music that is authentic to her. In March of 2022 Olivia was honored to be in COWGIRL Magazines third class of “30 Under 30”, a gala hosted at The Drover Hotel in the Fort Worth Stockyards highlighting 30 western women under 30 years old that are making a difference in the western industry. Olivia was honored again in June of 2022 to be announced as “Singer of The Year” at the First Annual Women of The West Gala at the Cowgirl Hall of Fame Museum in Fort Worth, TX.

These days, Olivia spends the majority of her time touring Texas and the surrounding areas, returning to the northwest for tours in the summer and winter. Regardless of where she hangs her hat, she’s well in touch with her western roots.

Drake Milligan Bio

Drake Milligan, born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, is a multifaceted talent making waves in the Country Music scene and entertainment. With a voice that resonates with authenticity and depth, Milligan has captivated audiences with his soulful performances and magnetic presence.

From an early age, Milligan displayed a natural inclination towards music, drawing inspiration from country legends like George Strait, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, George Jones and Elvis. Armed with an appreciation for the history of country music, Drake Milligan moved to Nashville and immediately jumped into co-writes and recording sessions, where veteran songwriters taught him the art of storytelling, legendary producers taught him how to perfect his voice, seasoned musicians backed the new guy, and his country music heroes shared advice on how to bring his music to life on stage.

When it came time to craft his sound though, the country traditionalist turned to his roots: Texas. His debut album Dallas / Fort Worth via Stoney Creek Records, produced by award-winning music producer and industry icon Tony Brown (Brooks & Dunn, George Strait, Vince Gill) and songwriter/producer Brandon Hood, is stacked with songs all co- written by Milligan. Featuring 14 tracks, his double-barreled baritone vocals match electrifying honky-tonk hooks, Western swing two-steppers and country pop balladry. Milligan uncorks exuberant themes of trouble-making fun, young romance, life-sustaining love and more on the project.

With his debut, Milligan carved out a place for himself on the national scene. Securing No. 5 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart, his debut album was named “One of the Best Country Albums of 2022” by Billboard, Saving Country Music and Whiskey Riff, as it dominated iTunes, scoring him the #1 spot on iTunes Country Album Chart, All Genre Chart and Country Song Chart as well as the #1, #2 and #3 spots on the Video Chart. In an unprecedented move, CMT featured five of Milligan’s videos simultaneously on the network.

Milligan competed on NBC’s America’s Got Talent (AGT) during season 17 and became a fan-favorite and Top 3 finalist. He recently returned to primetime television to compete on AGT’s new spin-off show Fantasy League, before hitting the road with country superstar and fellow Texan Cody Johnson for his 2024 The Leather Tour.

Selling out venues across the nation including multiple sold-out shows at the legendary Billy Bob’s Texas in his hometown of Fort Worth, Milligan continues to conquer new milestones including making his Grand Ole Opry debut and Stagecoach Main Stage debut, being named an “Artist to Watch” by CMT and Pandora and earning a nomination at the 2023 CMT Awards for Breakthrough Male Video of the Year.

Never taking his boot off the pedal, the pure-country hitmaker’s Jukebox Songs EP – released on February 16 marking another bold chapter in Milligan’s book. Produced by fellow Texan and traditionally minded star, Trent Willmon (Cody Johnson), the EP once again highlighted Milligan’s smooth, booming baritone vocal, towering over four fresh tracks full of instant-classic intensity and diverse country soul…including the foot-tapper “I Got A Problem” and the delicate, rootsy arrangement of “Don’t Leave Me Loving You,” a timeless, classic-country style ballad, aching and built on a still-tender emotional wound.

49 Winchester — Fortune Favors The Bold Out now from New West Records

With its latest album “Fortune Favors The Bold,” Russell County, Virginia-based 49 Winchester is ready and roaring to break onto the national scene with its unique brand of tear-in-your-beer alt-country, sticky barroom floor rock-n-roll, and high-octane Appalachian folk.

“As we’ve aged and matured, our sound has gone from a softer place to this grittier, edgier tone that we have now,” says lead singer/guitarist Isaac Gibson. “So, we’re trending more towards being a rock band instead of a country band. But, at the same time, I don’t think anybody’s ever known quite what to call it.”

Although it’s 49 Winchester’s fourth studio album, “Fortune Favors The Bold” marks its debut for Nashville’s New West Records — one of the premier labels for Americana, indie and rock acts on the cutting edge of sound, scope and spectacle.

Formed eight years ago on Winchester Street in the small mountain town of Castlewood, Virginia (population: 2,045), the band started as a rag tag bunch of neighborhood teenagers who just wanted to get together for the sake of playing together.

Aside from Gibson, there’s also his childhood friend, bassist Chase Chafin, alongside other Castlewood comrades — guitarist Bus Shelton, and Noah Patrick on pedal steel.

“From day one, it’s always been a band and it will always be about being a band. This is everything, everything we love about music — we’re going for broke with this thing,” says Gibson. “And that gives us a unique perspective because it’s still the same guys. It’s still all of us from Castlewood traveling around, playing music and making this band a reality — this is a story of growth.”

And it’s that sense of growth — more so, a sense of self — at the core of “Fortune Favors The Bold.” It’s not only a record that showcases the current state of 49 Winchester, it’s a melodic stake in the ground of how this group is constantly evolving and taking shape, sonically and lyrically.

Reflecting on his early days as a jack-of-all-trades stone mason in Castlewood, where it was about trying to make ends meet in an effort to keep 49 Winchester rolling along, Gibson can’t help but be grateful for a well-earned notion at the core of the band’s ethos — anything worthwhile in life is built brick-by-brick.

“Everything has to be built. And very few people are going to achieve success overnight,” says Gibson. “There’s going to be people you see succeed in front of you. Maybe you don’t think they deserve it as much as you, haven’t worked as hard as you, haven’t done it as long as you. But, none of that matters — they ain’t you. They’re not living your life. They’re not part of your experience.”

At its essence, “Fortune Favors The Bold” is about going against all odds to bring your art into fruition and into the world. It’s about leaving your hometown and heading for the unknown horizon. And it’s about proving those wrong who snickered and waited for the day you’d give up somewhere down the line, only to circle back home with your tail between your legs.

But, it’s also about looking into the rearview mirror with a genuine appreciation for where you came from and what you’re made of, those hardscrabble, salt-of-the-earth traits in your blood and character that define what it actually takes to climb that damn mountain of dreams — come hell or high water.
