​Wm Curtis -
Started writing songs at the age of 16, and progressively taught myself percussionist at the age of 16 years old, slowly learning how to play the guitar by ear format, knowing nothing about charting or writing and reading music, I took interest in Gospel music and Country Music, later found myself wrapped up in rock and roll since that was more of a trend for me at the time, but as a small boy growing up with a house full of siblings we grew up listening to country music, Hank Williams, Merl Haggard, Patsy Cline and yes Jonny Cash, and others to mention, not knowing the seed of country music sunk in and took root, i eventually started writing country at the age of 24 years old, after learning more lic's on the guitar, I thought i was bound for Nashville, but that was just a dream that never materialized, I later married 16 years later, I've been with BMI for 24 years now, been in this business for 40 years now, going on 40 plus, I've written mainly country ballads, a few honky tonk's along the way and a few bluegrass tunes, my vocals, well I have to admit isn't bad but it's not perfect either with todays artist so to speak, hitting the road has always been my dream someday touring with the pro's and i've met a few along the way but no one had any openings so to speak, so I pondered a few years later and  moved to Nashville for less then three years, and met some of the finest there is in music city, met a few not so good in this business too, but you meet them in most city's or towns you visit these days, they are just about everywhere these days!  I met my Publisher James Bruce a little over a year now and I have to say, I've  been treated with the respect one would deserve in this business and i personally look forward teaming up with James Bruce also known as James Paul Music Publishing (BMI) &  J Paul Music Publishing (ASCAP)Publisher.  Wm  can be reached at spotlight3records@yahoo.com

​Randall Branham - I first started photographing back in 1976 while on a hunting trip to the Great Rocky Mountains with a few other friends. I bought my first professional camera to photograph our adventures and have never looked back the camera eventually replacing my rifle.  I'm what you call self taught, I have literately been taught by the best in the world Such as Ansel Adams, Frans Lanting, John Shaw,  Galen Rowell, Art Wolfe, Edward Weston, and many others to numerous to mention.  Creating my own " photo/art " today is my passion and allows me to  develop an image as it lends itself to be formed, not with just my abilities behind a camera, but learning to use all the tools available to me. I have learned it takes tools, technique and talent to develop a work of art. I learned to pre-visualize what an image needs to make it unique. It should stand out from all others my photo/art now is my best sellers.  Why just depend on a brush or a camera when you can make a piece of art unique. like a painting it's one of a kind and in most instances can't be duplicated,.  Randall Branham Fine Art Prints are available on a variety of museum-quality, fine art substrates, including paper, canvas, metal and acrylic. NO watermark will be visible on any print. Please contact me if I can assist you with sizing or selection. email me. randallbranham@yahoo.com       Call me 513-716-2108 or email; just copy and paste randallbranham@yahoo.com
