Jamie Wyatt
Jaime Wyatt is a striking figure that walks the Earth with an old soul. Despite Wyatt's roots in rock music, her vocal style has always been considered country, with a rich, sometimes raspy tone and frequent use of breaks and bends. Comparisons are frequently drawn to Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks and at times she has been anointed a female Tom Petty. Nancy Wilson of Heart even professed loving Wyatt's "Punk Rock attitude." Regardless of genre, Wyatt is all things classic and American; a dynamic performer, powerhouse singer and stellar guitar player, sailing between vintage 60's and 70's Country/ Rock/Soul anthems and heartfelt ballads of love and confusion.
Originally discovered by Skip Williamson of LA indie label Lakeshore Records while still living in her hometown of Gig Harbor, Washington State, she signed her first recording contract at 17. Her Lakeshore Records self-titled EP was produced by Pete Droge, and delivered a windfall with every song receiving placement in a major motion picture or soundtrack, some of which included Wicker Park ("Lightswitch"), Midnight Meat Train (song title), and Feast of Love (song title). The track "Lightswitch" became a hit at college and indie radio in the U.S., alongside at stations across the European continent. Tiffany, of 80's pop radio fame, covered her composition "Mind Candy" on her album country album Just Me.
Wyatt's standout voice and classic songwriting intuition has earned her features in several movies and TV shows, such as ABC's Nashville and The Big Bang Theory. In 2015 she was featured singing a duet with reality TV star Ashley Hamilton on his E! Entertainment TV show, The Stewarts and the Hamilton's and his album Act One (Universal Music Group).

Coralee and the Townies are a Lexington, Kentucky based band of a genre they've self-defined as HONKY TONK SOUL. And it's a fitting description, as the sextet whoops and weeps with traditional authenticity and contemporary energy, with Coralee's husky vocals front and center and the Townies providing a righteous, raucous rootenanny soundtrack around her.

Having pushed out a killer EP produced by Duane Lundy (Ben Sollee, Vandaveer, These United States) only a year ago, Coralee and the Townies have established themselves locally as tip-top contenders guaranteed to draw a diverse crowd known to include multiple generations of devoted fans. This is most certainly attributable to combined on-stage experience of more than 150 years as the "Townies" are exactly as their name would suggest- players as experienced and on the scene as any band comes- each hand picked for just that reason by Coralee, herself.

Since the release of their debut, self-titled EP (available for listen and download at Coralee and the Townies have been building a regional following in Kentucky, Ohio, North Carolina, and Tennessee and are back in the studio with Duane Lundy, working toward their first full length release. Look forward to singles, music videos, and documentaries (oh my!) to be released in the very near future!
