Blair Crimmins and the Hookers
Blair Crimmins began his current music career in Atlanta, Georgia, with a determination to bring Ragtime and 1920's style Dixieland Jazz to new audiences. While playing small rock clubs around the Southeast he developed a sound that is at once modern while being deeply rooted in the past. Now four years, and five hundred shows later, he has toured the country playing large venues and has opened for acts such as Mumford & Sons and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. A multi-instrumentalist and music academic, Crimmins writes songs and arrangements for a classic New Orleans style horn section consisting of trumpet, clarinet and trombone.

His debut 2010 release The Musical Stylings Of became a college radio sensation on WRAS Atlanta making him the most requested band on the air. In 2012 Crimmins showed his musical diversity by writing and recording the full score for the independent short film “Old Man Cabbage”. The following year, Crimmins was the critics pick for Best Song Writer of 2013 in Creative Loafing's Best of ATL issue. His last album entitled Sing-a-longs! went to #21 on the EuroAmerican radio chart and earned him a nomination at The Georgia Music Awards for Best Jazz Artist. Blair Crimmins has now released his anticipated 4th studio album You Gotta Sell Something.
Gibson Wilbanks
When Carly Gibson and BJ Wilbanks first began collaborating musically, something truly magical took place as they began writing together. The result is borne in their debut album, Gibson Wilbanks, which releases to the world on Friday, November 22, 2019.

A graduate from Atlanta Institute of Music’s acclaimed guitar program, Carly Gibson is what you would call a triple threat for her prowess as a guitarist, songwriter and vocalist. Currently, Carly gives solo performances, is guitarist and vocalist with local alt rock band The Pussywillows, and is one of two backing vocalists with funk rock legends Mothers Finest.

Georgia born BJ Wilbanks is a prolific and extremely talented songwriter/producer. He creates music that fuses the roots of Americana, Motown, Funk, Blues, & Country into an intoxicating blend that is all his own. Critics and fans have referred to his style as “Back Porch Soul.” His 2017 self-titled album received high acclaim by American Songwriter, All Music, and many other major music outlets. His genuine sound and success as an artist lead to him performing shows with music legends Gladys Knight, Drivin N Cryin, and Mother’s Finest.

Together as Gibson Wilbanks, they have combined their songwriting and musical skills to create a unique sound that is all it’s own which is fully embodied on their debut album releasing this November 2019.
