Gary Burr: Gary Burr, born in Meriden, Connecticut, is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer, primarily in the country music genre. Georgia Middleman: Georgia Middleman's love affair with music is evident in every song she sings. Her songs blend passion and insight into the human condition with powerful melodies in a combination that hearkens to the timelessness of classic American popular music. Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Terri Clark, Joe Nichols and Tracy Lawrence are among the many artists who have recorded her songs, but her fans know best the magic that she herself can bring to them. Live, she wraps one of music's most expressive voices around lovingly crafted glimpses into life and love at their most compelling. Nowhere is that magic more effectively captured than in “Things I Didn't Know I Knew,” her most recent CD. It finds her bringing her unmistakably deft touch to love, both at its most sensual, as in "I'll Take What I Can Get," the cool and sexy "I Couldn't Have Said It Better," and the sultry title cut, and at its most tragic, as in "Death By Perfection"; to the miraculous joy of parenthood, in "The Best Thing"; and to the transcendent power of the human spirit, in "Gypsy When She Dreams," among others. Jim Photoglo: Jim Photoglo has musically spanned four decades as both a songwriter and artist, bringing his unique creative voice to the R&B, Pop and Country arenas. Growing up in Los Angeles, he began playing in bands as a teenager but never considered music as a “career” until he was in his early 20′s. Photoglo reminisces, “I wanted to get out of L.A., so I took to the highway ‘James Taylor’ style with an acoustic guitar, a sleeping bag and a lot of time to think…and all I thought about was music.” Mike Reid: Michael Barry "Mike" Reid is an American country music artist, composer, and former American football player.
