Live From The Divide hosts songwriters in an intimate venue on the north side of Bozeman, Montana. Four or six times each month, artists take the small stage in our 100-year-old brick-and-wood building near the old railyard, giving no more than 50 audience-goers at a time the chance to hear genuine American Roots music with unique, raw acoustics and up-close-and- personal emotion. Shows are consistently sold out in advance. We connect artists of national & regional acclaim with an engaged and appreciative audience. Performances are recorded live by Grammy-winning Executive Producer Doc Wiley then mixed and edited for radio broadcast. Producer Jason Wickens, a talented songwriter and country roots artist in his own right, interviews visiting acts, and those conversations are added to performance recordings. The resulting podcasts and broadcasts are a multi- layered, authentic, engaging celebration of musical Americana culture, inviting listeners to go deeper into the words and sounds that connect with our collective and individual experiences. Live From The Divide has welcomed talented artists for hundreds of in-house concerts, with all performances being recorded and released as hour-long public radio programs. A powerful, authentic experience for artist + audience alike.
““Americana is an amalgam of American folk music formed by the confluence of the shared and varied traditions that make up the musical ethos of the United States; specifically those sounds that are merged from folk, country, blues, rhythm and blues, rock and roll and other external influences. Americana, as defined by the Americana Music Association (AMA), is “contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw. While acoustic instruments are often present and vital, Americana also often uses a full electric band.”
