Doc Leytham was raised in Mobile, AL. He was taught how to play guitar at a young age by his father who was a missionary and evangelist. He learned “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Victory in Jesus”, and Under the Double Eagle”. He went to medical school at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. He is a US veteran and he served six years as USAF medical officer. Through many hardships and personal life struggles, he turned to songwriting and music as a way to deal with a variety of challenging and stressful situations. His songwriting echos the heart and soul of his experiences and it translates into his own “country blues” style of music. Dr. Leytham still practices medicine and continues to see patients while he waits for a call from Willie, Hank Jr., Jimmy, or some other more talented performer who might just one day want to record a song written by a country doctor from “L.A.” (Lower Alabama).
Brooklyn born and raised in the South, Queenie Mullinix is a true Americana artist. Her influences include Nanci Griffith, John Prine, Bonnie Raitt, The Highwaymen, the Jazz greats and The Rat Pack! After honing her craft in the Atlanta music scene and 16 years writing in Nashville, she and husband / bassist Dave Webb now call Mobile home. Queenie has had songs cut by jazz artist, Jaime Paul, Inspirational Country Award winners, The Springs and a 2017 Australian #1 single “Judgment Day” by Christie Lamb. As a performer she has released 4 albums of original songs. As one reporter put it, her voice would sound equally at home on the range or in a honky-tonk.
