My name is Thomas Charles Bresh and I am a creator. My educators were among the very best. My father was a musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist. His name was Merle Travis. My dad was a photographer and his name was Bud Bresh. Mom played the piano and her name was Ruth. I was raised on the most photographed movie ranch of its time. Most of my friends were entertainers, musicians, actors or stunt people. My life has been filled with many different influences. Because the influences were all part of the “Arts”, they felt natural to me and I embraced them. I have played music for as long as I can remember, which made me a lover of sound and the art of recording it. Helping my dad in the darkroom and being raised on movie sets, gave me the love of film and light and the experts were always teaching if you listened. I have created a lot of “stuff” in my day. I would like to share some of this “Bresh Stuff” with you. Thom Bresh "The Breshman" Thom Bresh Bio Bresh, the son of legendary player Merle Travis, and Jones, who is known as the greatest country player since Jerry Reed, have put together the ultimate "pickers record". The late great Chet Atkins is quoted on the CD jacket as saying "I think Thom Bresh & Buster B Jones individually are great players. But there is nothing like hearing them play together...it can NOT be duplicated". Review "There is nothing like hearing them play together, It can not be duplicated". -- Chet Atkins ...."Chops galore, great ideas and an encylopedic reservoir of guitaristic influences" -- Guitar Player Magazine Available on Amazon ...  Thom Bresh & Buster B Jones Thom Bresh & Buster B Jones

Ed Beaver is an amazing talent, singer songwriter and luthier here in Nashville Tennessee...

Originally from Texas, Ed Beaver has settled in Nashville, TN of late. It was a circuitous trail from Dallas through New Mexico, New Jersey and New York before finally making his home there. He has since been writing independent music which, although not a particular genre, seems to attract people to his shows. He performs with a trio, “The 3 B’s” including renowned recording artist and Thumbpickers Hall of Fame member, Thom Bresh and award winning Bobby Keel. He has also shared the stage with other known writers, Lisa Carver, Pam Belford, Jonmark Stone and Robert K Wolf. All close friends, strong songwriters and mutual admirers. Ed has chosen his path of his own musical integrity and the results have been a relief from the canned productions so prevalent today.

Ed Beaver is a songwriter/performer on unique yet common ground with his peers. As a performer, he has been lauded as a “person to hear”. His performances come from the heart and he seldom does a song that does not seem appropriate for the moment. His songs do not conform to the models of formula writing so prevalent in our industry. Yet, his audiences appreciate his work and ask for more. As a result, he has had publishing by Buckhorn Music and later as a co-writer with Famous Music. “Maggie’s Coming Home” and “You’re Memory Won’t Mind” are earlier songs while “I never Should Have Walked Out”, and “Who Needs Her” are more requested current writes. Catching an Ed Beaver performance is something that may or may not become a magic moment for you. It is always one for him. Ed has been drawn to music and performances since he was eight years old, clutching an Elvis Presley record in hopes of appearing in a talent show in Gallup, New Mexico. His musical career took him to Dallas, Texas for many years as well as the”Beach Cities” of California. He managed to carry something with him form all the experiences and recasts them into his music.

“You ain’t seen nothing yet,” is the exclamation used by BTO, and it is an apt description of “Jim Parker’s Songwriters Series.” Jim is the creator and host of a popular series at the Von Braun Center Playhouse in Huntsville, AL called Jim Parker’s Songwriters Series ™ where he showcases the incredible talent of his hit songwriter friends from Nashville, TN, Muscle Shoals, AL and surrounding areas.

All it took was holding his first guitar at the age of eighteen (1961) that was given to him by his sister’s boyfriend, Jimmy Gilmer, who had a hit song in the sixties called Sugar Shack. Within a year he was playing in a band and later became a founding member of The Illusions and landed a record deal with Dot Records. In the early sixties he and his buddies decided to leave their hometown of Amarillo, Texas, and head to Los Angeles. During that time, The Illusions became The Kitchen Cinq recording with Lee Hazelwood’s LHI label for three years and this later led to jobs with other recording bands like Armageddon and THEM (post Van Morrison) with some studio work with various recording artists on the side. Moving to Nashville in 1975 was the beginning of another fantastic phase of Jim’s career where he met a young John Anderson and began writing successful chart songs. Then Jim branched out and has co-written with many #1, Hall of Famers and Grammy winning songwriters over the years and continues to do so today.Jim is the creator and host of a popular series at the Von Braun Center Playhouse in Huntsville, AL called Jim Parker’s Songwriters Series ™ where he showcases the incredible talent of his hit songwriter friends from Nashville, TN, Muscle Shoals, AL and surrounding areas. The dinner-theater atmosphere has created a highly anticipated monthly event where people listen to great songs from the people who wrote them and here the stories behind their songs. Without the songwriter there would be no music because “it all begins with a song.”

 Mike Holloway "Southpaw from Arkansas" Slide & Blues Guitar

Mike Holloway

Mike Holloway's musical journey began at a very young age, influenced by his father, a fan of Jimmy Reed. From the age of 8, he was carrying his one-legged dad's guitar to blues jams in juke joints all through the Mississippi Delta. By the time he picked up the guitar, Mike latched on and never let go. He formed his unique Blues and Rock style from listening and jamming on tunes by artists such as BB, Albert and Freddie King. On top of Brickyard Hill, down the road from Willy Brown St in Yazoo, Mississippi, Holloway drew attention from blues artists all around him and became an intent student of his local legends. By 1989, Mike was on the road playing with Luke Duke and sharing the stage with bands like Rare Earth and Badfinger. His blues guitar stylings have backed artists like Miranda Louise, as well as Big Al and the Heavyweights. Being on the road for 250 shows a year took its toll, but also introduced Mike to a strong slide guitar influence in Sonny Landreth. Holloway then took to his own solo career, playing slide guitar and singing the blues. He has opened the stage for such acts as BB King, Buddy Guy and Little Feat (as well as travel the world in support of his own albums). Mike has been developing his slide guitar and blues style for 46 years, and looks forward to sharing what he has learned.
