Hailing from the Texas hill country, Jenny Hill grew up in the small town of Dripping Springs, Texas. Set right outside of Austin, the area provided for a childhood full of music and potluck parties. Texas swing, country, classic rock and roll, and bluegrass filled a room as friends picked up guitars, fiddles, mandolins, washboards, washtub basses and spoons. This sparked an interest in her at an early age, and she picked up the fiddle when she was six years old. Her dad, who also played, was her primary teacher, along with Ms. Mary Hattersley, a long time Austin resident. The fiddle, however, took the backseat to sports when she hit middle school, but reappeared in college after seeing Austin based band, The Belleville Outfit and traveling for a semester in Up with People.

Jenny now calls Gunnison, Colorado her home after attending WSCU. Gunnison's tightly-knit community, beauty, multitude of outdoor activities and small town charm inspire her to write, mainly of the people she meets, the relationships she has formed and the friends and family she still holds close back in Texas.

Jenny plays a fiddle that has been part of her family for many years, and a Pearl mandolin, a model designed and handcrafted by her father, Jerry Hill back in Dripping Springs, Texas.

Sam Pankratz is a self-taught “woodshedder” from the northwoods of Wisconsin who draws inspiration from a hard day’s work, a sense of place and his natural surroundings. He’s been playing “flat-picked” style guitar for a little over a decade inspired by flatpicking greats like Doc Watson and Tony Rice to name a few… Sam has been a member of multiple bluegrass bands over the years and most actively plays with local band, Simpler Times, as well as the newly formed Jollification Project. Sam has written a variety of original instrumental and vocal songs over the years, mostly inspired by hard-working America, his love of the outdoors, poverty and heartache; much like most bluegrass songs, minus murder and incarceration. His favorite musical moments are those created in improvisation, humor and passion. Sam has found new inspiration in his love for Jenny and their time spent homesteading, traveling, making music and exploring this big world.
