Monte Montgomery is cementing his place as not just some blazingly electrified acoustic guitar player freak of nature, but also a rare and true triple threat - songwriter, singer and master musician. From following after his mom, a singer/songwriter who instilled in him a passion for music and a taste of the life he was destined to lead, it was the eventual move to Austin, Texas, where he earned his musical baccalaureate from the city's highly competitive music scene. Terry Lickona, producer of Austin City Limits, introduced him on the Austin City Limits' stage uttering these words: "Monte Montgomery blows people away. There is no other way to describe it."

Wesla Whitfield inhabits the area where jazz and cabaret meet. Whitfield has toiled for more than three decades to become one of the most gifted performers breathing life into that exquisite body of Broadway tunes, movie songs and Hit Parade numbers known collectively as the Great American Songbook. With her deft sense of time and uncanny ability to connect with the emotional truth in a lyric, the jazz world has had no qualms about embracing her as one of its own. Working with pianist/arranger Mike Greensill, the two released their 19th recording 'Message from the Man in the Moon' in December of 2007, and their first as a duo.
