  • Anjimile

    9/13 @ 12:30

    The thick, smokiness of her voice is reminiscent of dark honey-or perhaps dark liquor, rich but biting. Her lyrics almost seem too honest and too raw, but Anjimile wouldn’t have it any other way. She wants her fans to connect to the words just as much as, if not more so than, the melodies because she writes each and every letter herself.Queer Lives in Color

  • James Fox


    James has spent half his life shuttling between southern Vermont and the borders of Scotland. From that upbringing came an equal appreciation for John Buchan and tweed, as well as Americana. You might find him outside grilling chicken thighs or rescuing thrift store brogues to have them resoled. He now works with the digital libraries and metadata of some of your favorite brands…
  • Don Rongione

    American Made Matters

    American Made Matters was launched on July 4, 2009 by Don Rongione, President and CEO of Bollman Hat Company in Adamstown, PA. Rongione grew up in Philadelphia where his father, Nick, was a cutter in a coat making factory. Don’s father instilled in him the importance of American manufacturing and buying American made products. As CEO of Bollman, America's oldest hat maker, Rongione experienced the tragic decline of American manufacturing first hand when loss of major customers to foreign competition forced him to lay off 100 U.S. manufacturing employees. It was this experience that led Rongione to create an organization dedicated to educating consumers on just how important American manufacturing is to our country. With the help of a handful of US manufacturers, American Made Matters was born.
    We have the ability to change our economy and to strengthen our communities one purchase at a time. American consumers have tremendous economic clout and they need to realize the importance of buying American made goods. It only takes few seconds to look at a tag or to ask a sales person if they carry any made in USA brands. Many times you’ll be surprised that there isn’t much of a price difference, and American made goods are often better quality. With every purchase we have the ability to create jobs and better opportunities for our children and grandchildren.Don Rongione

  • Gabe Johnson

    Great American Country Network Star

    To Gabe Johnson, owner of Seattle-based company Horses Cut Shop and star of an upcoming series on cable network Great American Country, nothing is more American than a classic T-shirt – especially ones inspired by small-town businesses. And in his new, still-to-be-titled series premiering in 2015, Gabe is canvasing America in search of that inspiration.
    Having grown up in a storied timber town on the coast of Washington State, Gabe spent the better part of his life pursuing white-collar success in finance, advertising and data analytics. In 2008, he threw it all in a psychic dumpster when he took to the back roads of America, seeking out souvenir T-shirts from the most iconic small businesses in the country. His mission? By printing the logos of iconic small businesses on the best American-made T-shirts money can buy and then sharing the profits with those businesses as he sells the T-shirts around the world, Gabe hopes to celebrate the small town hero and save what’s left of the American dream. In 2012, Gabe combined his love of T-shirts with a renegade social club he founded in 2009 in Seattle, Washington, called Horses Cut Shop. And the rest is a new American dream in the making. Rightly so.
