Lucinda Williams is an Americana/alternative country singer/songwriter who rose to national prominence with the release of her universally-acclaimed self-titled third album in 1988. Williams began her ascent to music stardom by tirelessly recording music in a traditional country and blues style since 1978, despite never truly receiving much attention for her efforts. However, following the release of an eponymous album in 1988, Williams would not only receive the national attention she deserved, but a track off the album, "Passionate Kisses," was covered and recorded by Mary Chapin Carpenter in 1994, earning Williams a songwriting Grammy that year for "Best Country Song." Since then, Williams has managed to maintain a successful career as a singer/songwriter and was even named "America's Best Songwriter" by Time magazine in 2002.
Two Fresh is a hip-hop/electronica duo from Asheville, North Carolina that was formed into a professional act in 2008 by fraternal twins Sherwyn and Kendrick Nicholls.

Two Fresh's debut album The Baker's Dozen was hailed by critics as an ingenious mixture of a variety of unique musical elements into a hip-hop tinged electronica brew, leaving many to wonder where these freshly minted golden twins of hip-hop will end up next.
