Faith Evans Ruch is a Memphis Americana artist with a sound straight out of the Delta. Her influences range from Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton to Al Green and Etta James, with a fusion of classic country, blues, and Memphis soul carried in her smokey, yet powerful vocals. FER has been featured in No Depression, Paste Magazine, and American Songwriter and plans to release her second full length album, recorded at famed Royal Studios, this summer. Singles "Sugar" and "Bang Bang" are available now on iTunes and Amazon.  For more information visit FaithEvansRuch.com

Grace Campbell, a local singer song writer, has been singing since she was four-years-old, whether with her family or in choirs. Her initial influence comes from the Good Shepherd Church Choir in Lexington, Ky. However, after teaching herself the guitar in 2014, her songwriting was able to take form. Recently she has been involved in several bands, including her own family band, August385. She has gained experience through participating in these bands while also attending school at Sewanee: The University of the South. She has two albums to her credit, a summer tour through the west and has opened for Vandaveer here in Chattanooga. The song writing is catching and the voice enchanting. Definitely a catch her while you can performer.
