Bio coming soon.

These singer/songwriters will be doing a Nashville-style round where each songwriter will take turns performing one of their songs back and forth.

Runaway Home

The band, Runaway Home, is a “homecoming” of sorts. It was founded by three powerhouse singers looking for a road back to the music they grew up on and loved!

Their sound is strong three part harmony over lyrics that matter, wrapped in an acoustic style reminiscent of ‘70’s era radio. You might call them Retro-Commercial-Americana.

Flat River Band

Andy, Dennijo, and Chad Sitze are three brothers that are the Flat River Band. 

They grew up playing music with their grandparents and parents, and have performed at venues all across the U.S

 If the group Alabama grew up in the same house as the Bee Gees and they got together with the Marshal Tucker Band, you have experienced the Flat River Band.

Travis Bowlin

Travis Bowlin, born in Aurora, Indiana in 1988, was destined for success at a very young age. Having been trained in classical style singing and performing with the Cincinnati Boys Choir, Travis took a hard right turn to Rock ‘n Roll and Soul.

Going to the school of hard knocks and having a near death experience has made Travis Bowlin a great writer and a humble man with the voice of a giant!

Travis has been performing in the Greater Cincinnati area and has gathered a conglomeration of great fans that he loves.

He is very down to earth and deals with his fans personally!
