    LITTLE ROCK, AR – Due the recent developments and COVID-19 related event and show cancellations that are impacting many independent musicians, a group of Arkansas artists have joined forces to launch Artists Against COVID-19. 

    Artists Against COVID-19 will provide assistance to fellow artists in setting up their online shows for success, as well as promote their shows across various online platforms. This is also an opportunity for artists who have lost significant income to stay updated on assistance and resources available to them at the federal, state and local levels on our website resources page. 

     “We are all facing tough times and we want to bring much needed entertainment and release by connecting with people all over the world during this difficult time,” said Susan Erwin Prowse, owner of Big Red Dog Productions. “Times are uncertain and can feel a bit scary right now. We as artists are coming together to virally and virtually counter-infect the world with love, light, joy and peace through live online streaming of our music. 

    “It's our duty as artists to muse and heal,” said Anna Brazeal, owner of BlueMynx Publishing and Productions. “We were born for this. We are the light. Now is the time, more than ever, to step up and let our music and art be the best medicine.”

    "The Willow Tree" Released! 

    The Willow Tree is here!  Joey Barrett's debut album we produced!   LISTEN & DOWNLOAD:  CLICK HERE

    Joey is a country singer-songwriter born and raised in Star City, Arkansas and currently resides in Maumelle, Arkansas.   With a guitar in hand and an authentic country sound, you can hear his true life experience in his writing and style.  His main influences are artists Jason Isbell, John Prine, Steve Earle, Towns Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson.    

    Joey released his debut album “The Willow Tree” on March 14, 2019. It was produced and arranged by Cliff Prowse of Big Red Dog Productions. These songs have come to life and have an exquisite, rawboned realism partly because he's dedicated himself to cultivating his literary gift and partly because it's often been the contours of his own life, begun in the setting of rural Arkansas, and the lives of people he understands, that he's tracing. 

    “The Willow Tree” is made up of eight songs that span from a song he’s written inspired by riding on the trains he works on to a heartfelt song to his son about history, legend and passing down tradition. The album comes together in a true piece of art that will emote nostalgic, down home American vibes and keep you listening to it in it’s entirety.
