Wild Oats Records artist Steve Haggard is a true original. A superb singer/songwriter, Steve blends rockin' country with blues, a little folk and a dash of rockabilly to create Genuine American Roots music. 
Steve has performed in 19 countries, and he will again be touring in Europe in 2011. His current Wild Oats CD is Love Conquers All.


The music of  Joel Alan Lehman is best described as a cross between the 'outlaw' country of Waylon Jennings and classic Texas songwriters like Guy Clark. Lehman's fine songs are filled with strong images and technicolor characters, and delivered in a natural style that makes it 
all seem effortless. His curreut Wild Oats Records CD is Pure Texan.


The fine singer/songwriter Garry Jackson is one of the mainstays of 
our Wild Oats Records roster. He's from Canada, but spends a lot
  of his time here in Nashville these days. Garry also tours overseas   regularly. He has a soaring voice, and writes some really first-rate material. His current Oat CD is Something's Got A Hold On Me.


Pat DiNizio is the acclaimed lead singer/songwriter/founder/guitarist
of The Smithereens, a great band with a couple of gold albums to their credit. DiNizio also happens to be a tremendous solo artist, and we're pleased to have Pat's wonderful Live: The Living Room Tour CD (recorded right here in Nashville) on the Wild Oats Records label.


 Kimberly King, who made her debut in our label's 'New Artist Series', lives here in the Nashville area. An excellent singer and songwriter, Kimberly's style is a cool and original blend of country, blues & pop. She performed in Germany and Latvia in 2009, and will be returning 
to Europe in 2011.  Her brand-new Oat CD is due in March 2011.


Singer/songwriter Mark Brine -- dubbed "The Wild Blue Yodeler" by Billboard Magazine -- is a unique, exciting talent. Brine's superb mix 
of country, folk and blues has been described as "Woody Guthrie
and Lyle Lovett taking Mark Twain for a picnic in the heart of the Mississippi Delta." His latest Oat CD is Out On Luke's Highway.


Bluesman Eddie Kirkland has recorded for Stax/ Volt, Prestige, King and Telarc during his long career, and we were honored to have him featured in our Wild Oats Records Blues Series. From his work with John Lee Hooker, right up to the present day -- he's still goin' strong 
in his 80s (!) -- Eddie is a master of singing and playing the real blues.


Another "veteran" of our Wild Oats Records roster is Glenn French, an extremely talented singer/songwriter based in Connecticut. Glenn presents thoughtful, melodic songs, delivered in a warm, rich voice.
He made his Oat debut in our "Singer/Songwriter Series", and has
turned out some fine CDs since then. Glenn's new one is Snowblind


 Elliot Frisby, a talented singer/songwriter and exciting stage performer,  is from England. First featured in our label's 'Singer/Songwriter Series', Elliott returned to Oat Central to record his excellent Rusty Road CD.


Frank "Andy" Starr is a Rockabilly Hall of Fame member whose classic MGM sides, cut in the '50s, still sound just as fresh and exciting today. Sadly, the unforgettable Mr. Starr passed away in the fall of 2003. His great music lives on in his final recordings, cut with Wild Oats Records   (naturally!) in 2002. A video documentary of his life is now in the works.


A pop singer and songwriter from up New York way, Virginia Rao is a very talented artist who has done several projects with Team Oat here in Nashville. Virginia has a really nice voice, and writes songs marked by strong melodies. Her current CD is titled simply Virginia Rao.


Kenny McGeorge, who hails from New Jersey, made his debut in our 
label's Singer/Songwriter Series a few years ago... and now he's back 
with a brand-new (and excellent!) CD recorded here in Nashville with producer Steve Haggard. Kenny's eclectic style blends rock, folk, and Americana.  His new CD, Go All In, was released in September 2010.


Singer/songwriter/keyboard player Michael Jay Cresswell is English, 
but he lives in France these days. A very talented artist and dynamic performer, Michael spent a month here in Nashville not too long ago, recording his Wild Oats Records debut CD, It's Time. The album
has just been released, and it contains some really excellent music.


Singer/piano player Melissa Sigler is one of the four artists featured 
on our acclaimed Four Aces blues CD. She hails from Lake Charles, Louisiana, but has been living in Nashville for several years now. 
Melissa writes some truly top-notch songs, and delivers them in an original style that blends the best of blues, rock, pop and jazz.


Wild Oats Records artist Teddy Glenn is known as The King Of Crock. (Crock = Country + Rock.) Glenn writes powerful, distinctive songs, and has performed "everywhere from the dives of Oklahoma to the wilds of Sweden". Watch for Teddy's new Anthology CD, coming in Spring 2011.
