Western Kentucky has a rich history of unique and groundbreaking music that has contributed greatly to our nation’s musical heritage over the years. This diverse collection of work has directly or indirectly influenced generations of highly skilled musicians to create their own path in music history. Today, Boscoe France of Madisonville Kentucky keeps the tradition alive and well with an unreal level of talent and a connection with the guitar that’s almost indescribable. This Kentucky firebrand stands barefoot on stage, playing with the skill and talent of a master musician fused with the intensity of a bare-knuckled brawler. Boscoe France’s unique musical style is an awe-inspiring alchemy of blues, rock, country, and a little bit of soul into powerfully original approach.
A truly unique talent, this Kentucky firebrand began learning the guitar at the age of three from his Uncle Duke and began playing with their family band. By age eleven the guitarist was playing all over the western Kentucky and southern Indiana. After high school Boscoe moved to Nashville, where he toured with many successful national acts. In 2006 the western Kentucky native returned to Madisonville to take a break from touring and focus family on his own band. In 2009 The Boscoe France Band was born. The band was an opportunity for the guitarist to do all the vocals. What resulted was a power-trio. In 2012 Boscoe took top prize in the National Guitar Center King of the Blues Challenge. Later that same year He recorded an E.P. with Grammy award winning producer Pete Anderson. 2013 would provide the thrill of a lifetime when Boscoe received The King’s approval when he was asked to open for and later be called out on the stage by Mr. B.B. King himself. 2013 was also the first year The Boscoe France band were semi-finalist in The International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. An accomplishment they would repeat in 2014. 2015 was the year Boscoe went nationwide on Television. Shoeless Blues: The Journey of Boscoe France was featured nationally on PBS.

Emil Werstler is an American Guitarist and musician based in Nashville, Tennessee who is perhaps best known for his work with metal and gypsy jazz. In 2004, he became the lead guitarist for the metal band Daath, releasing four full length records and touring extensively. In 2010 Werstler released an instrumental album called Avalanche of Worms which received a largely positive response for its musicianship and experimental nature.
In 2012, Werstler was confirmed as the new lead guitarist for Cleveland based metal band Chimaira. With Werstler as co-writer, Chimaira’s final album Crown of Phantoms was released in 2013, reaching no. 52 on the Billboard 200 Chart. He announced his departure from Chimaira in late 2014 with the rest of the band dissolving shortly afterward.
Recently, Emil launched a crowd funding campaign for his new project: “Verlorener.” Werstler stated, “With my previous work, the listener was only getting a fraction of a musical statement out of me, whereas this is the complete version of what is truly inside of my head. This is what I’m intending to say and the sound I want to be known for.”
