Artie Hemphill comes to Utah Valley straight from the one and only "Music City” – Nashville, Tennessee. Originally from the San Francisco Bay area, Artie’s sultry baritone voice has been heard in just about every venue imaginable. As Artie took to the road in pursuit of his musical dreams, he was first drawn to Utah by his life long best friend, Dave Thurman. Playing together in the band “High Country” they spent countless hours tearin’ up the Utah landscape, showing them what real country music sounded like. But Artie’s sights had always been squarely fixed on Tennessee. Hitting the open road again, Artie’s passions took him to Nashville where he spent 10 years writing, singing, and recording country music. Since bringing his growing family back to settle in Utah, he has once again teamed up with his good buddy, Dave, to form The Iron Horse Band. And you should hear this guy sing! Have you ever gone to a restaurant and ordered something new and funky because the description sounded enticing, and then when you got it, it was absolutely the best thing you ever put in your mouth? Yeah…like that! As the “Front Man” of the band, Artie drives home the rock solid lead vocals with power and energy as well as rounding out the musical mix playing acoustic rhythm guitar. When you see him perform and hear him belt out that sweet country music, you’ll have no doubt that Artie is “the real deal”.
