Craig Bickhardt's style has been referred to as "soulful-folk with poetic lyrics". His finger-picking guitar technique usually draws comments from fans of stylists such as Leo Kottke and Nick Drake. As a recording artist with the band SKB (Schuyler, Knobloch and Bickhardt) Craig climbed the Billboard Country Charts twice with his songs "Givers and Takers" and "This Old House" (co-written with Thom Schuyler). Craig has also written songs for Ray Charles, B. B. King, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Martina McBride, Vince Gill, Allison Krauss, and Poco. His voice and music have been featured in the Academy Award winning film "Tender Mercies". So far, Craig has released three solo CDs, Easy Fires, No Road Back and Brother to the Wind.
J.D describes himself as a Dad, husband, son, brother, friend, singer/songwriter and recovering philosopher. “Life is much simpler than we make it out to be. There is nothing new under the sun. All you need is “to give” love.”
Born and raised under a bright blue sky in the Green Mountain State of the U.S.A, J.D Malone writes and sings songs about the epic struggle to be a better person and the universal search to feel safe under the stars.
Thom Schuyler's performing style reflects his early folk influences including Dylan, John Prine and Loudon Wainwright. His literary lyrical sense and storytelling skills shine in songs like "My Old Yellow Car" and "Sixteenth Avenue", the unofficial anthem of Music Row's songwriting community. Thom has been a solo recording artist for Capitol Records and a member of the MTM Records trio SKB (Schuyler, Knobloch & Bickhardt). His song "Love Will Turn You Around" (Kenny Rogers) was ASCAP Country Song of the Year in 1982, and American Music Awards Song of the year in 1983. Other chart-toppers include: "I Fell In Love Again Last Night" (The Forester Sisters), "Years After You" (John Conlee), "Long Line Of Love" (Michael Martin Murphey) and ! "Are the Roses Not Blooming?" (The Judds). Thom hails from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and currently lives in Nashville
