Shawn Mullins lives in Atlanta, he writes the songs that you might hear in your friend's car. His most recent song “Light You Up” is topping charts of all genres for months now. “These new songs are character sketches of people I’ve come across and places I’ve traveled through,” says Mullins. “Some of my earlier records were set in specific parts of the country; like the West Coast on Soul’s Core (his 1998 platinum album featuring the indelible hit “Lullaby”). This one is about the South, what has changed and what hasn’t changed. It has to do with what I’m seeing around me, and telling stories that haven’t really been told.” Kojii Helnwein is a musician, actress and a super model having been numerous magazines and has represented fashion giants such as Prada, Jimmy Choo and many more. Kojii also has done acting (Project Runway and Models of the Runway) print, runway and commercial fashion work. Kojii is Irish but spends her time between L.A. and the family castle in Ireland. She is married to Cyril Helnwein, fine-art photographer, who is the son of the classic and timeless world re-known Irish-Austrian painter, photographer, installation and performance artist, Gottfried Helnwien. Her band “Kojii” has a raw, metallic, punk sound to it. Lost bayou Ramblers will also be on this show with their down-home Cajun French Zydeco music. They perform in English and Cajun French. Over the past 300 years, a cultural amalgam has been percolating in south Louisiana. The resulting cultural distillate gave rise to both Bayou Country's world famous cuisine and a musical concentrate that conveys the passions, tribulations, and elations of the Cajun people. At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the Lost Bayou Ramblers are the keepers of the flame, champions of Cajun music's cultural past. "If accordians, fiddles and pedal steel guitars were weapons, these guys could simply slay you." -Glenny Brock, Birmingham Weekly, Birmingham, AL
