Nick Dittmeier & the Sawdusters
A four piece Americana band from Louisville, KY. They've released two EPs, "Extra Better" in 2013, and then "Light of Day" in 2014.Through relentless touring, they've become mainstays of the Midwest Americana scene. In September of 2015, they set ten highway-tested, fine-tuned songs loose in the confines of LA LA Land Studios. The result is "Midwest Heart/Southern Blues". The new album is a gritty, upbeat collection of songs, full of characters who were developed while staring over the dash of a beat up Ford van cruising through towns in the South and Midwest, whose better days are behind them. The Sawdusters will be on the road in 2016 and beyond. For fans of The Band, Little Feat, and the Turnpike Troubadours.

Kentucky has always been known for Bluegrass & Bourbon, but the roots of Jericho Woods run far deeper into the veins of the musical culture of this region. "I dig this band, they know their roots, haven't gotten above their raisin' and do know their state and musical heritage," says Greg Martin of The Kentucky Headhunters. Jericho Woods fuses the Grand Ole Opry with Muscle Shoals. A musical experience that only boys brought up in this diverse commonwealth could produce. With influences ranging from outlaw country, jam bands, roots rock, to folk & bluegrass, Jericho Woods take the best of all and craft their own unique blend. Members Include: Josh Mitcham (guitar & vocals), Paul Priest (bass & vocals), Jory Hutchens (fiddle) and Dustin Spencer (drums).

Jericho Woods, a five member group that rides a hazy line between country and americana, premiered on both the "Billboard Heatseeker" and "iTunes Country Album" Chart with their debut album Same Ol' Dirt. For an independent act, it was a milestone to get inside the Top 25 on the "iTunes Country Album" charts. However, to make the Top 8 "Billboard Heatseeker" Charts alongside Brandy Clark, Ralph Stanley and Butch Walker was truly an amazing feat and a testament to their active, supportive fan base.

"I've seen a lot of acts come through the music scene in the last 30 years that have tried to master that balance of country, rock and americana influences," says Pam Lewis, President of PLA Media. "However, until Jericho Woods, I had never heard an act that was able to develop such a distinctively, unique sound. With their organic delivery, you're left with this concoction that's one part Johnny Cash and one part Black Crowes."

Jericho Woods marks the latest addition to the celebrated roster at PLA Media, a company that currently represents the world renowned Johnny Cash Museum and Tina Turner Museum alongside country legends and leaders Lynn Anderson, Phil Vassar, Bryan White and Ashton Shepherd.
