Valerie Wisecracker is the number-one matriarch of Florida folk music, and she’s famous all over the state.

Val Wisecracker knows plenty about tunecraft. Besides the top-flight vocals, she plays a mean guitar and a meaner banjo. ( Not sure why the instruments are so mean; Val herself is as nice as could be.) Venues are lucky to have her. Greg Baker, Miami New Times

Sarah McCulloch is a Country/Americana Singer-Songwriter whose sweet, yet sultry, voice pierces right through the lush traditional country production on her latest album, Sawmiller’s Daughter. Born in Miami, Sarah was raised in the Big Cypress Swamp in a house her family built with hand milled cypress from her father’s sawmill. Sarah was homeschooled most of her formative years and drew songwriting inspiration from her colorful childhood, surrounded by Seminole Indians and Florida pioneers. The songwriter’s emotive and nostalgic lyrics showcase her knack for timeless storytelling that transports the listener right into the center of the narrative. Produced by Jim Bickerstaff (Widespread Panic, Loretta Lynn, Chuck Leavell, Gladys Knight) and written entirely by McCulloch except for, “I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal” written by legendary outlaw songwriter Billy Joe Shaver, Sawmiller’s Daughter is an evocative collection of stories rooted in strength, spirit and family. Renowned journal of roots music, No Depression cited McCulloch as being, “one of the most memorable debuts in recent Americana music history,” and her sound as, “genuine and sparkling with palpable emotion.” After living in upstate New York for over a decade, McCulloch returned to her homeland of South Florida with her feet firmly planted in the solid foundation she has built by sharing her life stories through song with a spirit of relatable honesty, fervor and warmth. “I became very serious about writing when I was at the end of a difficult time in my life,” says McCulloch, “I was very, very homesick for my home state of Florida. ‘Sugartown’ and the title track, ‘Sawmiller’s Daughter’ were written around that time. It was healing for me and helped me transition into a new life.” From listening rooms and theatres to gin-joints and festivals, McCulloch is enthralling audiences far and wide with her personable musical mosaic and unforgettable voice married with meaningful songs. In the Fall of 2021, McCulloch signed with Lady Savage MGMT & PR and will be releasing several singles with accompanying visual content leading up to the April 2022 release of her sophomore album, Sawmiller’s Daughter.
