Kyshona Armstrong went off to college to study music. She came out a gifted and well trained musician but she had found a new passion. She became a mental health therapist and went to work at a Georgia state hospital.
After a decade as a therapist Kyshona decided to try her hand as a professional musician. She succeeded. After moving to Nashville she wrote songs reflecting the shared experiences of all, but especially the lives of African-Americans. Her song Cornelius Dupree is a brutally honest tale of an innocent man who spent 30 years in prison.
Kyshona has a loyal and growing following. Her music is an original blend of her soul and southern roots together with her life experiences.
John Common grew up in Pensacola. When he was thirteen years old, he found his older brother's Epiphone acoustic guitar in a closet and began writing songs. While still in high school, he founded and fronted the successful roots rock band Bunkhouse Jones.
After high school he toured the U.S. and Europe, played in the popular band Rainville and founded the group Blinding Flashes of Light. Jess Denicola was hired as the lead vocalist and immediately fell into a groove with John. The two have been performing as band mates and a duo ever since.
The New 76ers are an acoustic folk band from Tallahassee. Their sound comes from a collective respect for acoustic and tradition based music. As a family, they rely on instinct to meld vocals into harmonies and let them take the spotlight. They are deep-rooted in Southern musical heritage & their original music aspires to move you physically and spiritually.
The New 76ers mission is to give love through their music as they believe that music is and always will be a force to compel change. Kelly Goddard, Danny Goddard and Brian Durham make up the group performing on guitars, upright bass and vocals.
