Oboz Footwear presents Live From The Divide, a north Bozeman venue that hosts songwriters for live performances to no more than 50 audience members in its 100-year old building near our town’s rail yard.
Live From The Divide is also a public radio program with 52 syndicated broadcasts across six states, and podcast series, all featuring a wide range of American roots music. It’s also worth mentioning that founder, Jason Wickens, is one of our best “true to the trail” friends, and a reputable and talented songwriter and country roots artist in his own right.
Live From The Divide celebrates the American songwriter and gives voice to the honest experiences of visionary artists, directed toward listeners who know the truth when they hear it. The partnership between Oboz and Live From The Divide came easily, as we each share like-minded values, a passion for adventure, and a love for the wild places we call home.
As title sponsor of Live From The Divide, we at Oboz are excited to bring you two to three episodes each month of unforgettable live music events.

ABOUT JASON WICKENS
Fourth-generation Montana artist Jason Wickens grew up on his family's ranch outside of a small rural town in North Central Montana. At an early age, he began playing guitar and developed a passion for music and specifically songwriting. In 2010, Wickens took this passion along with his newly renovated commercial production studio to co-found nationally syndicated public radio program Live From The Divide. His singular mission to capture, promote, and expose as many songwriters as possible resulted in Wickens capturing over 500 songwriters over the course of a decade. Including many notable artists like Sturgill Simpson, Steve Earle, Tyler Childers, James McMurtry, Jack Ingram, Hayes Carll, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and countless others. In addition to producing the program, Wickens hosts the Live From The Divide Podcast where he is able to dive deep into the craft and journey of singer-songwriters.
