Lizanne Knott starts us off! The Pennsylvania-bred singer songwriter has overcome a challenging past to ascend to her current position as a multi-award winning artist, poised to release her sixth album, 'Bones and Gravity,' this fall. Knott's constantly growing presence on the Americana scene has taken her all over the U.S. and UK, as well as Spain and Ireland, playing live for her expanding fan base.
"Take the inventiveness of Bob Dylan, the melodic voice of John Denver, add the showmanship of Garrison Keillor ... and that's Michael Johnathon," says Bob Spear of Heartland Review. Among the throngs of artists in the music world, few have elevated "dreaming" to such a high art form as folksinger Michael Johnathon. He is a touring songwriter, author of five published books, playwright of the Walden Play performed in 42 countries, composer of the opera and so much more.
