Mark Jungers got his start in the mid 80’s music scene in Austin. His group, Motel Preachers, was honored as Best New Band and second place, Best Country Band, in New Haven, Connecticut in the 90’s. He and his current group, The Whistling Mules, have released three successful CDs: Black Limousine, Standing in Your Way, One For the Crow. Jungers has shared the stage with a variety of popular groups, including Billy Joe Shaver, The Derailers, Gary P. Nunn, Slaid Cleaves, Slobberbone, Sisters Morales, Roger Creager, Trout Fishing in America, Charlie Robison, and Cooder Graw.
JD Wellfed started writing poems in junior high and writing songs in his early twenties. He draws inspiration from “anything and everything.” His songs are simple, of the countryside, and built on folk, bluegrass, and a plethora of influences. His music creates a personal universe with a tragicomic angle on life. JD was also the founder of the Sweet Home Music Fest. The festival provided artists a platform to perform their original music while raising funds for several community causes.
