Alison Krauss has effortlessly bridged the gap between roots music and genres such as pop, rock, country and classical. She has released 14 albums and sold more than 12 million records. She has won 27 Grammys, nine Country Music Association awards, 14 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and and two Gospel Music Association awards.

Her new solo album, Windy City, features 10 classic songs that she carefully selected with producer Buddy Cannon. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums and Top Bluegrass Albums charts and received Grammy nominations for Best Country Solo Performance and Best American Roots Performance.

During her three-decade career, she has recorded songs such as "When You Say Nothing At All," "The Lucky One," "Ghost In This House," "Let Me Touch You for a While" and "Baby, Now That I've Found You." She has also contributed songs to numerous films, including O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Cold Mountain, which led to her performance of "The Scarlet Tide" and "You Will Be My Ain True Love" (with Sting) the 2004 Academy Awards.

The Illinois native signed a recording contract with Rounder Records at age 14, and by 16 had released her first solo album, Too Late To Cry.  She became a member of the Grand Ole Opry at age 21.

Along with her longtime band and musical collaborators Union Station, with whom she has worked since 1985, she has released seven albums, including So Long So Wrong, New Favorite and Lonely Runs Both Ways. The 2011 project Paper Airplane, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, won Grammys for Best Bluegrass Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.

She is also known for her collaborations with other artists, ranging from Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, James Taylor and The Cox Family to Cyndi Lauper, Heart and Phish. She joined Brad Paisley on "Whiskey Lullaby," which won CMA Awards for Best Musical Event and Best Music Video of the year. In 2007, she and Robert Plant released Raising Sand, which was certified platinum for 1 million in sales and won five Grammys, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for "Please Read the Letter."

We can all stop looking for the next Cat Stevens or Paul Simon. American Songwriter magazine recently noted Steven Delopoulos "could go down as music's first truly great writer of this century" while naming the self-titled album by his band Burlap to Cashmere "one of the best records of 2011." Like his legendary influences, this entertaining New Jersey native always finds that rare creative connection between the human condition and spiritual transcendence. What sets him apart are the ancestral Greek folk turns his melodies and rhythms take-a rich ingredient that brings so much flavor to Steven's work as both a magnetic solo artist and Burlap's front man.Delopoulos also has the unique experience of having been ahead of the times and now with the times. His group first broke out of Brooklyn brandishing an acclaimed pop/folk-meets-world sound for which no scene yet existed.

After two solo projects-2003's Me Died Blue and 2007's Straightjacket-gained warm comparisons to Harry Chapin and early Bob Dylan, Burlap to Cashmere reunited "having cultivated the scene now occupied by Fleet Foxes, Mumford & Sons and others" (All Music Guide). Soon enough, The Tennessean noticed the band "reclaim that turf in top form" with a sound USA Today describes as "sumptuous and exotic." Onstage, Steven Delopoulos is a soulful storyteller, a graceful and gritty singer with guitar chops to boot whose hard-won and hopeful songs take us anywhere from the dream-filled American road to the colorful streets of Greece. 

"There are those who create from inspiration, a fierce devotion to excellence in craft," All Music Guide said of his remarkable talent. It's something you'll want to see and hear for yourself.
