As well as being one of Santa Fe's most beloved songwriters, Joe West is also a local impresario, producing theatrical events around his hometown of Santa Fe and throughout the state of New Mexico. But it is his music that has found a greater audience around the globe. Quirky, offbeat and melodic, his award-winning "theatrical folk music" is a singular mix of country and rock, which he has been recording and releasing on cassettes, CDs and vinyl records since the mid-eighties. He has toured extensively throughout the States and Europe, opening and sharing the stage with the likes of Peter Rowan, The Violent Femmes, Arlo & Sara Lee Guthrie, Mojo Nixon, and James McMurtry. Over the last few years Joe has created a rock opera, produced music for film and television, originated a conceptual radio show, created a film festival, and founded a theater company that performs his dark horror-comedies with original live music. 

Bill Hearne, along with his late wife Bonnie, are legends of the early Austin music scene, collaborating, recording, and performing with many well-known artists such Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith, Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, Butch Hancock, Eliza Gilkyson, and Michael Martin Murphy. Bill has won numerous music-industry awards including a Lifetime Achievement Award from New Mexico Music Commission and is an inductee to the Kerrville Folk Festival Hall of Fame. The film biography, "New Mexico Rain: The Story of Bill and Bonnie Hearne," captures their extraordinary life and career. 

Roadhouse Karma presents an eclectic mix of Americana and originals. Influences include Dylan, Lenard Cohen, Devil Makes Three, John Prine and traditional folk, country and rock songs with a twist. Formed out of a love for fun music and good friends, Roadhouse Karma features Dan Alejandro on guitar and vocals, Linda Dunhill-Hasselbeck on violin and mandolin, Shelly Johnson on banjolele, guitar and vocals, Scott Switzer on percussion and vocals, and Vance Holmes on Bass.
