Kendra’s band Hallelujah Junction won the Battle of the Blues and is representing the State of Alabama in the World International Blues Competition in Memphis, January 2015.
|Travis Widner, "Alternative Country"|

|Jay Randall, “Americana”|
Jay Randall is a performing singer/songwriter in the Birmingham area. Written in the storytelling tradition of Country and Folk Music, Jay’s deeply personal songs are often described as Americana.
|Skip Cochran, “Country/Americana/Folk Rock”|
When asked to describe his music, Skip replied, “Music is inside me, and it has been a dandy journey watching it come out. Hope you enjoy my music. May it touch you where you're needing to be touched.” Well, stated, Skip!
|Chapman James, “Singer/Songwriter/Folk/Americana”|
Chapman has had unique insights into the development of a Folk musician. "A writer is not necessarily the one that shouts 'Hear Me!' (that's the performer talking), but one that listens and seems to whisper 'I heard you'." Whether it's the sound of a human trotting across the prairie, the epic life of a tree, the loneliness one needs to combat garden gnomes or a view of war through the eyes of a 4 year old boy, Chapman's songs are honest and simple.
This will be a wonderful show supporting a wonderful and worthy cause. So join these talented songwriters for an evening of entertainment and fun. I promise you will not be bored and will come away with a smile on your face. I hope you'll send in your donations if you are unable to attend. All funds go directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Del McGee, sponsor and The Stem and Stein pay all the expenses for this benefit. The songwriters donate their time, talent and yes, their money for St. Jude.
