About the Artists

The Mayfields (Ma and Pa of One Way Rider):

"You can’t help but feel good listening to One Way Rider! Their
musicality draws you in, from their intricate and fast-paced
instrumentals, to their smooth vocal harmonies, the talent of this
family bluegrass band literally bursts from the stage. Seeing One Way
Rider live is an uplifting and unforgettable musical experience."
~ Catherine Cala, WYSU FM

Rebekah Jean :
Burton, Ohio

Rebekah Jean's EP “Ribbons and Pearls” is found on iTunes,,


Based out of her rural Burton, Ohio home, she's a mixture of her
rustbelt-meets-country upbringing. Rebekah Jean spent her school years
hopping around Cleveland's east side, eventually landing in the sleepy
farm town of Burton—and it shows up all over her music. It's rougher
around the edges, sometimes, but then she sings about her softer
longings, and quiet rest. Her mother, a coal miner's daughter, inspired
her first connection with Loretta Lynn's music years ago, and it's taken
a country flair ever since. But you also hear her time spent with the
hippie songstresses and outlaw cowboys her father played in the car
radio--Joni Mitchell,Willie Nelson, Graham Nash.
Rebekah Jean also grew up with music in the southern gospel church
community of Cleveland's east side and started playing with a bluegrass
band with a revolutionary spin in her early twenties. But eventually her
writing took over, and Rebekah needed another channel for her creative
Cleveland area open mic nights led to coffee shops and bar gigs, and
Rebekah Jean can now be found throughout the area playing her original
songs at the Beachland Tavern and Grog Shop among other venues, mostly
wailing ballads of some broken heart or place and time she's passed through.
