Millie Palmer
While still in her 20’s, Millie Palmer has earned her credibility in the local music scene of Asheville, NC with her original contemporary folk, Americana and roots music, as well as with her jazz music and vocals. Palmer is an expressive and distinctive vocalist, and an accomplished songwriter.
Since graduating with a distinction in Music from the University of North Carolina Asheville in May 2012 with a degree in Jazz Studies, Palmer has been doing a mixture of Jazz and Original music performances as well as expanding her musical palate. She recently spent a week in Nashville expanding her craft with the amazing songwriter Darrell Scott.

In 2015, Palmer's focus will be primarily on writing new material, arranging older music into something new and performing. She will also be recording an EP with her band in the Fall of 2015. With many years of performing and writing music already under her belt, Palmer is excited to venture into exploring various new configurations for performance.
Ashley Heath
Ashley Heath is a singer/songwriter from Marshall, NC who plays a wide range of Americana music. You can hear influences from Eva Cassidy to Bonnie Raitt in her velvety vocals and bluesy guitar picking. Ashley plays under a solo act named Ashley Heath Projects, which is a collection of original songs as well as soul, blues, and country cover songs.

She has always had an interest in singing; starting out in church as a small child and later joining rock bands throughout high school and college, but her interest in songwriting didn’t develop until her sophomore year of college in 2008. She since has entered many songwriting competitions including The Brown Bag Singer/Songwriter competition in Asheville, NC in which she placed second and crowd favorite in 2014. Since the Brown Bag Competition, Ashley has gone on to record her first album with her duet The Sweet Treats with guitarist Kevin Reese. The album was recorded at Echo Mountain Studios along with producer Ryan Burns and Engineer Clay Miller. The album is planned to be released in mid-September.

She also sings third part harmony in a country group from Asheville, NC named Raising Caine. This year will make The Sweet Treats first year performing on the solar stage at Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival and Raising Caine’s second. Throughout Ashley’s musical career she has had the privilege of sharing the stage with artist such as Oteil Burbridge, Ivan Hampden, Artimus Pyle, Melissa Reaves, Bobby Hicks, and The Del McCoury Band. Be sure to keep an eye out for this upcoming singer/songwriter!
Ben Phan
Ben received his formal training from Virginia Commonwealth University, where he studied jazz, classical guitar, and improvisation. He began his professional career as a founding member of the Richmond Afrobeat Movement, a successful project that gained significant attention in the South. After that, he became the Musical Director for the Free Run Wine Merchants Jazz Band. He then joined a folk/bluegrass group called the Rusty Strings to further expand his style and playing.

After some difficult life circumstances, Ben took several years off from playing music. In 2014, he decided to walk from Mexico to Canada with a guitar on his back. He left the Mexican Border on April 16 and crossed into Canada on September 7. Along the way, he experienced a series of spiritual awakenings that culminated in a renewed passion for music and a prolific body of original work. His songs draw from his experiences on the trail, as well as past experiences that have been given new meaning.

After his journey, Ben came to Asheville with a dream to live a life driven by music. He spends hours every day writing, practicing, and playing. He recorded his first solo EP, Hold On, Let Go, and is set to release another in June. He performs as a solo artist and collaborates with other musicians. He has built a successful guitar teaching practice, which is a great source of inspiration for himself and many others.
