Why we dig him?
There's no mistaking Jan Mateboer’s Dutch roots, blessed with a sharp eye for detail, crafting hook-filled story songs that recall country.
As a songwriter Jan delivers lyrics and radio-ready tunes like Rainbow Sue and stays true to his Dutch heritage while flirting with the best of what Nashville has to offer.

Listen to Rainbow Sue

We realize that we’re talking about country music here, which has a long tradition of heartbreak, misery and sad times.
There have been plenty of superlative songs about love and treason., but this one written by Jan Mateboer and performed by Gerard Buisman “The Dutch Troubadour” is kinda different.

Listen to Bad News

Sam Doores is a New Orleans based folk singer who grew up singing gospel at church, was converted to folk after seeing Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and then took the course of many young artists by exploring the music of Dylan, Guthrie, et al. Seeing that he is presently in New Orleans it's no surprise that a bit of jazz and afro beat have crept into his music.
Sam is a barrel-fire crooner from the side of a lonesome railroad track. He's a dustbowl orphan living in a scrap tin shanty He's a bohemian romancer singing from a tenement fire escape. He's lost in the future

Hear The Lyric Man Sing

Hi folks, Ray Cox is the name, please to meet y'all... well I was drinking & thinking one night about a marriage that went wrong. it was around 3am. & the words just started to come into my head, after a while I started to put them down on paper. Drinking and thinking ain’t nothing to brag about and I sure ain’t bragging about the pain, but the words was there so I put them down!

Merle Ronald Haggard(The Hag)

Emerging from prison in the 1960’s, Haggard was one of the earliest innovators of the Bakersfield sound. With his hard biting electric guitar, he almost single-handedly introduced country to the electric sound. His work in familiar country themes-jail, betrayal, drinking and wandering- include a directness that reflects his own life expirience.
