Sean McConnell with Andy Davis

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

?From a very young age, I just knew that I was gonna spend my life making music,? Sean McConnell states. ?I never really questioned it, so I just forged ahead and didn?t let anything stop me.? Although his self-titled new Rounder album will serve as his introduction to many listeners, the personable young artist is actually a seasoned, distinctive songwriter and an experienced performer with a quartet of D.I.Y. indie releases to his credit. Having built a substantial grass-roots fan base through tireless touring and old-fashioned hard work, McConnell is primed for a mainstream breakthrough. Sean McConnell demonstrates exactly why McConnell has already won such a devoted audience. He writes vivid, forthright, effortlessly catchy songs whose incisive melodic craft is matched by their resonant emotional insight. Such instantly memorable tunes as ?Holy Days,? ?Beautiful Rose,? ?Bottom of the Sea? and ?Best We?ve Ever Been? are both catchy and personally charged, conveying an unmistakable sense of personal experience while exploring universal truths. ?This record?s a bit of a step for me,? McConnell asserts. ?It?s a real storyteller record, and it?s pretty autobiographical. I?m learning how to be more honest and understated in my writing, and I wanted to match that sonically and vocally. When I look at this collection of songs, I see a lot of nostalgia, and looking back on sacred moments. I?m kind of nostalgic and reflective by nature.? McConnell recorded the album in his adopted hometown of Nashville with producers Jason Lehning and Ian Fitchuk, who also contributed keyboards and drums, respectively. The recording took place prior to McConnell signing with Rounder, with the artist financing the sessions himself. ?This project started,? he explains, ?when I went to a cabin by myself for a week, with the intention of writing some songs. In that week, I wrote about half of the songs on the record, and I could see the thread of what this record was gonna be. That was exciting for me, because it normally takes me a year to find an album?s worth of songs that belong together. The whole recording process was really fun and liberating, and the energy in the studio was really positive.? Songwriting and music-making have been a part of Sean McConnell?s life for as long as he can remember. ?My mom was a singer and my dad was a guitar player and songwriter,? he notes. ?They?d play in coffeehouses and I?d go along and watch them perform, and seeing that lifestyle showed me that music was an option. And seeing my dad painstakingly writing songs had a huge influence on me, and gave me license to feel like I could enter into that world.? By the age of ten, he had become proficient on guitar and was writing his first songs. ?I fell in love with the instrument first,? McConnell recalls. ?Learning guitar gave me a feeling of uncharted territory laid out in front of me. And as I got better on guitar, the songs started to come naturally. At around the same time, we moved from Massachusetts to Georgia, and the first song I wrote was about the feeling of leaving the familiar and feeling lost in a new place. Music gave me a focus and became an emotional outlet for me.? His supportive family background helped to instill the confidence and drive to pursue his muse early on. ?I started playing in middle school, doing any gig I could get just to get my chops up,? he says. ?By high school, I would be doing local gigs and really promoting them, bringing out a couple hundred kids to my shows a few times a month and starting to make a decent living at it. That made me think that maybe I could do this in other towns. So I started traveling around the southeast a little bit, and there was always enough progress to take things to the next level. While I was in college, I did a lot of college touring, just me driving all over the United States in a Toyota Corolla. It was hard work, but it showed me that I could do it.? McConnell was just 15 when he self-released his first album, Faces, in 2000. Followed by 2001?s Here In The Lost and Found, 2004?s 200 Orange Street, 2006?s Cold Black Sky, 2007?s Tell The Truth, 2008?s The Walk Around EP, 2010?s Saints, Thieves and Liars, 2012?s Midland and the 2014 EP The B Side Session. ?I had a guitar teacher in Atlanta who had a home studio, and he was the first one to say ?Hey, you should make a record,'? he says. ?If I go back and listen to that first record now, the songs are kind of crude, but at the same time there?s a directness about them that I like. My writing has evolved since then, but at the same time I?ve tried to hold on to some of that directness.? ?I?m really attracted to songwriters who just put it out there honestly, and I feel like I?m getting back to basics and expressing things in a simple, direct way on the new album,? he continues. ?I?m just trying to learn how to be a more honest storyteller, trying to get my mind in a place where I?m not actually thinking and the music?s just kind of happening naturally. When I read interviews with songwriters that I admire, they always say that the best songs are the ones that just kind of happen, like they?re operating from the unconscious. That?s a place I want to get to.? Having spent much of his life honing his craft and paying his dues, Sean McConnell is eager to launch the next chapter of his career. ?I kind of feel like I?ve been in a really long boot camp,? he concludes. ?I?m really grateful for that, because I feel like I?ve gained enough experience to know the deal and be prepared for anything. I?m excited to see where the next part of the journey takes me.?

Rachelle Ferrell

Genre: Jazz/R&B
Doors: 6:00PM
Show: 7:00PM

Rachelle Ferrell is unquestionably one of the most dynamic talents in contemporary pop music. Very few vocal artists in the industry have Ferrell's potent combination of range, phrasing, and musicianship. Ferrell first emerged in the states with her R&B debut Rachelle Ferrell (1992), a solid collection of self-penned originals that featured a striking duet with Will Downing ("Nothing Has Ever Felt Like This"). It was with the release of First Instrument in 1994 (recorded prior to Rachelle Ferrell) that audiences were really introduced to Ferrell's jazz sensibilities. Rachelle Ferrell began singing at the age of six, which many speculate contributed to the "development of her startling six and change octave range." Her range also includes the ability to sing in the whistle register, as stated in an editorial review in which she references her highest notes in "It only took a minute" as "Minnie Riperton-like wailing". She received classical training in violin at an early age and by the time she was a teen, she was able to play the piano at a professional level. She enrolled in Berklee College of Music in Boston where she honed her musical abilities in arrangement, singing and songwriting. From 1975-90, Ferrell sang backup for Lou Rawls, Patti LaBelle, Vanessa Williams, and George Duke. Ferrell's debut, First Instrument, was released in 1990 in Japan, five years prior to its US release. Recorded with bassist Tyrone Brown, pianist Eddie Green and drummer Doug Nally, an all-star cast of accompanists also leave their mark on her record. They include trumpeter Terence Blanchard, pianists Gil Goldstein and Michel Petrucciani, bassists Kenny Davis and Stanley Clarke, tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter and keyboardist Pete Levin. Her unique take on now-standards like Sam Cooke's "You Send Me", Cole Porter's "What Is This Thing Called Love", and Rodgers & Hart's "My Funny Valentine", captured the hearts and souls of the Japanese jazz buying public.

Raul Midon

Genre: Jazz/Soul/R&B
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Raul Midón has earned renown as one of music's most distinctive and searching voices. He is "a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus," according to The New York Times. Midón has collaborated with such heroes as Herbie Hancock and Stevie Wonder, along with contributing to recordings by Jason Mraz, Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg and the soundtrack to Spike Lee's She Hate Me. The New Mexico native, blind since birth, has released seven albums since 1999, including the hit studio productions State of Mind (Manhattan/EMI, 2005), A World Within a World (Manhattan/EMI, 2007) and Synthesis (Decca/Universal, 2009). Midón's most recent release is the captivating CD/DVD Invisible Chains ? Live from NYC. Attuned listeners can hear the inspirations of Donny Hathaway and Richie Havens in his work, as well as Sting and Paul Simon. But Midón's questing musicality makes him, as the Huffington Post put it, "a free man beyond category." A vibrant presence on screen, Midón can be seen in the documentary on Hancock's star-studded album Possibilities, and he is featured collaborating with soul icon Bill Withers in the documentary Still Bill. Midón has also demonstrated his progressive techniques by performing for the series of "TED Talks." Ever since being told by some when he was a child that his blindness meant that "you can't do this, you can't do that," Midón has lived a life devoted to shattering stereotypes. His forthcoming album has the singer-guitarist adding producer-engineer to his portfolio of talents, with special computer software for the blind enabling him to engineer sessions on his own in his home studio. This project ? which includes collaborations with Withers, R&B singer-songwriter Lizz Wright, Cameroonian jazz bassist Richard Bona and Grammy-winning jazz singer Dianne Reeves ? underscores why People magazine called Midón "an eclectic adventurist."

Wishbone Ash, one of the most influential guitar bands in the history of rock, returns to these shores in September. Longtime fans and new converts alike will revel in the group's signature twin-guitar mastery and powerhouse rhythm section as they present classics spanning their career and showcase selections from their latest studio release, Blue Horizon. Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash is led by Powell on guitar and vocals, trading licks with Finnish guitar master Muddy Manninen. Bassist Bob Skeat, an 18-year veteran of the band, sets the pace with Joe Crabtree, one of the best of Britain's new breed of drummers whose performance credits include Pendragon and David Cross of King Crimson. Through the years the band has delved into various musical genres, from folk, blues and jazz to pedal-to-the-metal rock and electronica. Whatever the style, Wishbone Ash's hallmark is the distinctive twin-melodic lead guitar interplay that has influenced such bands as Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Iron Maiden and, more recently, Opeth. There is no other rock band in history that has done more with the twin guitar concept than The Ash.

Joseph Arthur with Reuben Hollebon

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

For every song Joseph Arthur has released in a critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated career that has spanned nine full-length albums and 11 EPs, he's probably kept three others in the vault for safekeeping. Indeed, Arthur has been known to start working on a new album ? or two ? while simultaneously trying to finish another. It was amid this abundance of riches that the Brooklyn-by way of Ohio-native began molding a collection of music under a single narrative thread: The Ballad of Boogie Christ, described by Arthur as "a fictionalized character loosely based on my own journey." At first, it was a song here or there, or a set of lyrics with no accompanying music. Then, those songs would get recorded and set aside. They'd get re-recorded and revised. They'd start to make sense in relation to their brothers and sisters, and then they wouldn't. And pretty soon, more than half-a-decade had flown by and Boogie Christ was no closer to coherency. "For some reason, I've been avoiding finishing this record for a long time," Arthur says with a laugh. "It's been an albatross around my neck. I don't know why, but it has." Yet despite its labored birth, The Ballad of Boogie Christ has defied the odds to become another essential cornerstone of Arthur's robust discography. Encompassing sessions put to tape in upstate New York, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and Arthur's own Brooklyn studio, the 11-song album showcases the artist's signature rich storytelling set to a diverse range of rock'n'roll. "I don't know that there's a beginning, middle and end to the story, but there are definitely experiences, situations and perspectives that point in those directions," says Arthur. "I wanted to let the listener fill in some of the blanks without telling the whole story in a straight-ahead way." The album begins with the surprising orchestral pop of "Currency of Love", on which Arthur unveils a passionate croon unlike any vocal performance he's ever given. From there, Boogie Christ offers epic affirmations on overcoming addiction (the seven-minute closer "All the Old Heroes"), anthems of open-hearted solidarity ("Wait for Your Lights", "It's OK To Be Young/Gone") and the kinds of slow-burning narratives ("Famous Friends Along the Coast", "I Used To Know How to Walk on Water" and a reimagined, hymn-like version of his standout, "I Miss the Zoo") that have won Arthur a legion of fans around the globe. Songs like "Black Flowers", "I Used To Know How to Walk on Water" and the title cut were recorded several years ago with help from the Band's legendary keyboardist Garth Hudson and bassist Catherine Popper (Ryan Adams, Jack White), while newer additions to the track list such as "Currency of Love" and "Saint of Impossible Causes" were crafted in Los Angeles with assistance from Chris Seefried (Fitz & the Tantrums, Lana Del Rey). Among the other guests on Boogie Christ are Ben Harper (Arthur's bandmate in Fistful of Mercy), session drummer extraordinaire Jim Keltner, Joan As Policewoman leader Joan Wasser and composer Paul Cantelon (Oliver Stone's W., Julian Schnabel's The Diving Bell & the Butterfly). "There are certain moments on the album that are just pop music and sugary," Arthur says. "I didn't want it to be this diatribe of heaviness, and it had been like that sometimes. I definitely wanted moments of relief within it, where you just get a good jam." At the center of the project is the autobiographical "King of Cleveland," a classic story song that connects Boogie Christ the character with Arthur the flesh-and-blood artist. On it, the narrator apprentices alongside a big fish in a small pond, "playing blues in the back seats, from biker bars to limousines" ? much like Arthur did in his early professional career in Northeast Ohio. Says Arthur, "He's just starting to live the life he's imagined, playing roots boogie in the real America ? Ohio." "I've heard David Bowie talk about how Ziggy Stardust and some other records were the beginnings of screenplays that he just never finished," he says. "I could really see this becoming something deeper and bigger than just an album. "Chuck Prophet reminded me that there's always the Great American Novel," he continues. "And that really stuck in my head about Boogie Christ. That's what I've been wanting to achieve with this album. He encouraged me that it was okay to dream big."

Mike Peters of The Alarm

Genre: Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

"Give Me Love, Give Me Hope, Give Me Strength" ? The opening words from The Alarm's 1985 UK/US Top 40 hit song 'Strength' which gave its name to the band's career best selling album that celebrates it's 30th anniversary in 2015. Following on from the hugely popular 'Declaration Tour 2014', Mike Peters one man band 'Alarm' concept will present 'Strength' in a similar contemporary style featuring performance, stories and images to honor the legacy the album left on the decade it helped define and the continuing significance it holds for listeners who can still relate to it's timeless themes of love, hope and strength. The Alarm's debut album 'Declaration' was powered by unique electro-acoustic guitars that by the time of the follow up 'Strength', had evolved into a much fuller arena rock sound that paralleled U2 and Springsteen's E Street Band in its scope and ambition. A sound that would see The Alarm break North America on a grand scale and peak with a live appearance before an audience of 26,000 fans at a concert in Los Angeles watched by millions around the world via MTV's first ever live satellite broadcast. Packed with powerful yet personal songs like the autobiographical 'Spirit Of '76' and 'Walk Forever By My Side', 'Strength' went on to become The Alarm's best selling album of the 1980's charting in the Top 40 on both sides of the Atlantic. This is The Alarm record that brings together for the first time, the aforementioned themes of love, hope and strength now so synonymous with Mike Peters and his long running battle against cancer. Two times cancer survivor Mike Peters is fast emerging as one of the most visible advocates and activists for those living with and beating cancer around the world. Over the last four years, his Love Hope Strength Foundation has found over 1500 potentially life saving bone marrow donor matches; built the first ever children's cancer center in Tanzania; supported the Bhaktapur Cancer Center in Nepal with life saving equipment and registered over 90,000 donors through it's 'Get On the List' program. By turning rock concerts into lifesaving events, more than 10,000 international recording artists including Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, Frank Turner and The Drop Kick Murphys now support the charity by allowing bone marrow registries at their concerts. Although Peters, is constantly fighting the illness himself (he may ultimately need a bone marrow transplant), he refuses to stop performing. Continually mixing his role as cancer advocate and musician by leading fundraising treks around the Globe and addressing delegates at the World Cancer Congress in Melbourne, Australia in December. "Thousands of people from around the world die every year simply because they can't find a match. The match is out there for everyone; they just have not been found. That is our life mission - seeing that everyone that needs a donor has one. It's that simple! Equally simple is the process - a simple cotton swab of the cheek - to get on the registry and then, if you are lucky enough to become a donor for someone suffering from blood cancer, the next step is a simple out patient procedure. Most people don't know this and it is our job to get the message out to as many as possible," says Peters. Peters inspirational story and musical exploits to perform awareness raising concerts at altitude on mountains such as Everest and Kilimanjaro (all while undergoing bi-monthly chemotherapy sessions), will be the focus of a new documentary film 'One Guitar', being produced in the USA by Kaleidoscope Pictures that will be released in 2015. The idea to climb mountains and perform concerts came when Mike was in hospital in Wales going through his second battle with cancer. Peters said, "I could see Mt. Snowdon from my hospital window and thought to myself, 'When I recover, I'm going to hike up that mountain as my symbolic climb back from cancer and raise money with my fans to support the cancer center that helped save my life.'" 30 years on from the original release of 'Strength', Mike Peters still has so much to live for, After twenty years living with cancer his songs of love hope and strength have taken on greater meaning and the defiance of his words from the 'Spirit Of '76' ring truer than ever. "I will never give in until the day that I die.? I'll get myself some independence, carve out a future with my two bare hands".

Tickets on Sale 7/15 at 10am! Allen Stone: My Favorite Songs Favorite Stories with King Charles

Genre: R&B/Soul
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Along with immersing himself in a songwriting approach that involved unflinching examination of ?some very dark and negative moments in my life,? Stone shaped the sound and feel of Radius by pushing himself to ?get past the boundaries of what I felt comfortable with, so that I could progress into a whole new level of creativity.? Despite that sometimes-daunting process, Radius wholly reveals Stone?s easy grace in blending everything from edgy soul-pop and earthy folk-rock to throwback R&B and Parliament-inspired funk. Radius first began to come to life back in the fall of 2013, when Stone headed to Sweden to join in a writing session with Tingsek. ?His musicality is so outside-the-box, and it really stretched me as an artist,? says Stone, who?d tapped Tingsek as one of his opening acts for an 85-date headlining tour in 2012. ?We just kept on throwing a wrench into the works and tried to create something that?s the complete antithesis of what you?d expect from pop music.? After recording the bulk of the album in Sweden, Stone rounded out Radius?s production at his own studio in the woods of northeast Washington and in L.A.-based sessions with producers like Benny Cassette (who?s previously worked with Kanye West) and Malay (a co-producer on Frank Ocean?s channel ORANGE). Like many of his own musical heroes?Stevie Wonder chief among them?Stone pulls off the near-magical feat of channeling a weight-of-the-world sensitivity into his songs while still radiating hope and promise. And though that depth of consciousness feels transmitted from a more golden era, Radius continually hones in on issues both timeless and of-the-moment, with Stone?s breezily poetic lyrics touching on topics ranging from rampant materialism (on the tenderly string-accented, harmony-soaked ?American Privilege?) and the toxic takeover of technology in art (on the gutsy and groove-heavy ?Fake Future?). ?That song?s mainly about how technology?s infiltrating music in a way that?s making it less and less human and taking all the heart out of it,? Stone says of the latter track, a soul-pop powerhouse peppered with playfully cutting lines like ?Rock stars pushing buttons/Few actually play/City wasn?t ever built on lights and Special K.? And as evidenced by Radius?s lush yet raw sonic landscape?wherein the only hint of synth comes from a Moog analog synthesizer?Stone stayed true to his pledge to ?keep fakeness completely out of this record? and rely entirely on live instrumentation. Equally introspective and outwardly searching, Radius also finds Stone exploring intensely personal matters, such as depression on the stark and lovely, acoustic-guitar-woven ballad ?Circle? (?That one was written at a pretty dark time for me,? Stone points out. ?It?s about how depression can put you into a kind of circle, where you?re just trying to find a way out but it keeps on leading you back inside?). Showing his skill at crafting a killer love song as well, Stone looks at heartbreak and regret on the aching, electric-piano-infused ?I Know That I Wasn?t Right,? slips into hopeless romanticism on the dreamy R&B pastiche ?Barbwire,? and unleashes some starry-eyed affection on the dancefloor-ready ?Symmetrical? (a sample lyric: ?The angle of your spine/Is sending lightning bolts down mine/When those molecules combine/It?s astronomically divine?). And in tracks like the ultra-catchy album-opener ?Perfect World? and the fiery, horn-laced ?Freedom,? Radius unfolds into epically joyful anthems that show the full range and power of Stone?s vocals. Stone started working those vocals as a kid, thanks largely to his parents? influence. ?My father was a minister so I spent about half my childhood in church, watching my mom and dad sing together and lead the congregation in song,? he recalls. By the time he was 11 he?d picked up a guitar and written his first song, and soon began self-recording demo tapes to pass along to classmates. Although Stone enrolled in bible college after high school, he quickly dropped out to move to Seattle and kickstart his music career. ?I had an ?87 Buick and I?d drive up and down the west coast, playing any gig I could get just to try to put my music out there,? he says. At age 22, Stone self-released his debut album, 2010?s Last To Speak. But it was his self-titled follow-up (on which he joined forces with former Miles Davis keyboardist Deron Johnson) that ended up earning him serious recognition. Along with entering the top five on iTunes? R&B/Soul chart after its digital release, Allen Stone prompted him to score appearances on such late-night talk shows like Conan and grace the pages of publications like the New York Times (whose chief popular-music critic Jon Pareles praised Stone for possessing ?a tenor voice with the eagerness and frisky syncopations of [Stevie] Wonder?). And upon partnering with ATO Records for a physical release of his self-titled album in 2012, Stone soon turned up on the likes of the Late Show with David Letterman and landed a gig as the opening act for soul legend Al Green. In the midst of all the buzz, he also took up a grueling touring schedule, tearing through nearly 600 shows in just two years. For Stone, all that time onstage went a long way in preparing him for the many creative breakthroughs he?s made on Radius. ?I think you really grow as a musician when you?re playing right in front of people, and for me constantly growing and progressing and getting better is really the most important thing,? he says. Ruminating on the emotional undertones of his new album?s title and noting that ?the center of me is my heart,? Stone says he also hopes that Radius will ultimately help listeners shed new light on their own struggles. ?There?ve been times in my life when records were my saving grace and really helped me to figure out who I am, and I?d love for my music to have that kind of impact on a kid who?s looking for his or her own place in this life,? he says. ?Because I absolutely believe that if you?re going to stand at a microphone and say something, you need to recognize that as a privilege. You?ve got to be incredibly careful about it, and really put all your heart into the message that you?re sending out into the world.?

Smoothjazzlovers.org Presents Soul Jazz Bassist Julian Vaughn feat. Danette Hollowell

Genre: Jazz/Soul
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Julian C. Vaughn, the 6’7 lead bass player from Kansas City, whose passion shines through his dynamic young talent, has made a strong statement within the Jazz industry by breaking through the scene gaining the attention needed to thrive in its genre. Julian grew up in the church where his grandfather pastored, and father later pastored. Julian began his music career playing the drums like most children in the church. “Trying to play the drums at church was like ten football players going after a fumble. Everyone wanted to play.” The fight eventually got old, and Julian decided at the age of 15 to try his talents with a different instrument. Julian recalls picking up a bass guitar another man in the church was playing and immediately falling in love! “It was truly love at first sight.” After teaching himself to play, Julian soon realized that he had the ability to play music by ear; soon after that, he discovered how to play full songs and even specialized techniques. At the age of 19, Julian’s grandfather bought him a 6-string bass guitar, black with gold trim. As he perfected his craft even more, Julian discovered the art of bass soloing, and knew at that point, it was more than just a hobby, but it was his life’s passion. “My friends use to get on me because I would stop playing the bass line and start soloing...” Vaughn remembers. Julian’s playing style is unmistakable. His talent is captured by the atmosphere his music provides. A sense of epic, majestic, and bold invading annotations that reveal Julian’s talent derives from patient pursuits to generate an enchanting energy that keeps heeding ears immersed. Julian began work on his first CD in 2009. It started with the day he listened to the bass line laid down by Mel Brown in the song “Never Gonna Give You Up”, a remake by Toby Keith and Wayman Tisdale. Vaughn eventually sought out Brown and connected with him and agreed to play on several tracks on the record. Vaughn also got Sax player Darren Rahn, a close friend of Browns, to agree to play on and mix a few tunes on the record as well. “It was Rahn and Mel Brown who let me know that I had what it took to make in this genre...” remembers Vaughn. The purpose project was released in 2010, and not only put his playing in full display, but also highlighted Vaughn’s strong song writing ability. “I produced and wrote every song on the record which I am still proud of …it opened doors for me”. “Breakthrough” marked Vaughn’s label debut and has already made waves across the country with a two week debut on the national Billboard chart at #24, eventually reaching and staying at #1 for three consecutive weeks on the Billboard charts with his first single “On Your Feet”. Julian Vaughn stays current on industry trends but does not write his music to fit the radio format. “I know what flavor works in the music industry but I don’t write my material based on that. I write from my heart. Whatever is moving me at the moment is what dictates the end. I want to make music for the people not format. Music is my everything, that’s why I love doing what I do.” An authentic exemplification of artistry.

Vocalist extraordinaire, Danette Hollowell grew up in the church and has been singing as long as she can remember. With her father being a Chaplin in the military as well as a pianist and vocalist, Danette was a military brat that was able to travel a lot in her young age, exposing her to all types of classic soulful sounds. Danette originally started out as a classical ballerina at a private art school, “I was a dance major and sang in the choir from time to time.” Her focus was mainly dance until she accidently found a UCD scholarship specific to Jazz. Danette studied within the UCD Music Preservation Program for Swing ‘n Dixie Jazz for 2 years, and recalls it to be the BEST thing to ever happen in her life. Danette is currently singing with such groups as The Old Souls and TMRRW PPL. Danette has been a jazz vocalist in conjunction with original singer/song writer in the Denver area for the last 12 years. With a repertoire including Billy Holiday, Sam Cook, Eryka Badu, and Miguel; Danette brings a soulful, fresh sound to classic tones while putting her unique current signature on it. She has graced Colorado stages for the last nine years. “I love people, my family, African-centered things, magic, artistic expression, and music of all kinds. My favorite influences are Jazz, Soul, and Blues. I play covers and original. The mix of my unique, rich, vocal quality sets me apart from other local act. My depth of presence sets me apart and gives me international appeal.” Danette uses her musical gift to generate beauty; and no effort made to attain beauty is ever lost. May her musical legacy live for life.

British Blues/Rock pioneer Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown celebrate 50 continuous years, 44 albums, and more than 5,000 gigs from the Royal Albert Hall to Carnegie Hall to the Fillmore East and West and now back to the Soiled Dove after five years! But Kim Simmonds is not living in the past; he's challenging himself and his band to reach new heights and find higher ground. "Savoy Brown is a very musical band," Simmonds says. "We're not comparing ourselves to others. We appeal to an audience who wants to hear what we are up to now, what we are rehearsing, creating as a band. I think my guys and my team are empowering me to do this." That's what Kim lives for and invigorates him - playing for audiences who are hungry to listen for new heights in artistry - not just living off 50 years as an architect of the British hard blues scene. "Whether I like it or not, I think my destiny is to keep doing what I'm doing, play in clubs and theaters where people pay their hard eared money to hear us give them one-hundred and ten percent."

Brian Culbertson is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, writer and producer who crosses genres between contemporary jazz, R&B, and funk. Heralding from the musically rich city of Chicago, he began his musical studies at the early age of 8 on piano and quickly picked up several other instruments by age 12 including drums, trombone, bass, & euphonium. Inspired by the great R&B/Jazz/Pop artists of the 70?s like EWF, Tower of Power, Chicago, David Sanborn, and others, Brian Culbertson started composing original music for his 7th grade piano recital and hasn?t stopped having self-produced 16 solo albums, most of which have topped the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts. Having worked and performed with countless industry all-stars like Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Ledisi, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, Chuck Brown, and Bootsy Collins just to name a few, Brian has received numerous awards including being nominated for a 2012 NAACP Image Award and a 2012 Soul Train Award. Also in 2012, he founded the Napa Valley Jazz Getaway now in it?s 5th year. Brian is always striving to push the boundaries of the jazz scene, which is evident by his forthcoming album, Funk! due out this September. This new set is a throwback to the stanky P-Funk records from back in the day combining infectious bass lines, greasy horn licks, sing-a-long hooks and of course, landing hard on the ?One.? This record is also a follow-up to his widely successful Bringing Back The Funk album from 2008, which was co-produced by the late Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire. Regardless of his success, fans can be rest assured that with the 16 albums and counting, Brian Culbertson always brings his very best ? and brings the very best out of others ? in all his broad-ranging musical endeavors.

Chatham County Line

Genre: Bluegrass
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Based on looks alone, Chatham County Line conjures a sepia-toned timelessness by huddling around a single microphone on stage, playing traditional string band instrumentation while clad in suits and ties. But for nearly two decades, the Raleigh, NC-based outfit has consistently crafted top-notch, original modern acoustic music that draws upon American roots forefathers like bluegrass inventor Bill Monroe and folk innovator John Hartford while acknowledging its own members’ backgrounds in rock ‘n’ roll band Characterized by poignant songwriting and inventive arrangements, Chatham County Line’s latest album, Autumn, sees the quartet working comfortably in its sweet spot: Built around songwriter/guitarist Dave Wilson’s clever lines and compelling vignettes, the record is a treasure trove of the wistful balladry and dynamic toe-tappers that’ve become the band hallmarks. John Teer (mandolin/fiddle), Chandler Holt (banjo), and Greg Readling (bass) add stellar three- and four- harmonies for vocal highlights, while their impeccable yet unconventional picking—rooted in bluegrass but informed by a wealth of other influences—impresses without overshadowing Wilson’s rich storytelling. From elegant European concert halls to large American folk festivals, Chatham County Line has become a fixture on both sides of the Atlantic, where the musical relationships fostered by its consistent line-up are apparent through an unspoken chemistry that allows the freedom for improvisational flashes that seem as polished as the rest of its set. For a veteran ensemble that’s long made music on its own terms, perhaps its toughest task is now choosing which of the many gems from its seven albums get to shine in a given performance.

Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra

Genre: New Age/World
Doors: 6:00PM
Show: 7:00PM

Ottmar Liebert's incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany to Chinese-German father and Hungarian mother, he began playing guitar at 11, and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia intent on fully absorbing each musical tradition he encountered. After pursuing his Rock and Roll dreams first in his native Germany and then in Boston, he abandoned the frustrations of the East coast and settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 1989, he founded the first incarnation of his new band Luna Negra. Nouveau Flamenco began life as a self-produced local release called Marita: Shadows and Storms, copies of which local Indian artist Frank Howell distributed in his art galleries. When the record found its way to radio stations and began generating a buzz among programmers and an unprecedented response among listeners, Higher Octave Music picked it up and released a fully remastered version. Liebert has since become one of the most successful instrumental artists of the past decade, thrilling audiences throughout the world and releasing a catalog of classic recordings, including the remix collection Euphoria (1995), the live album Viva! (1995), the double CD Opium (1996) and the classical-oriented orchestral album Leaning into the Night (1997). He wrapped up his decade with Epic with 2001's Little Wing and went back to Higher Octave Music, releasing a lush album of lullabies called In the Arms of Love in 2002 and an album with Luna Negra XL called The Santa Fe Sessions (2003). La Semana (2004) was the first all-new band album in five years, followed by Winter Rose (2005), which featured original pieces, classical music and christmas songs. In 2006 Liebert's record label SSRI released One Guitar, his first solo guitar recording, which received Liebert's fourth nomination for a Grammy. His newest releases are Up Close (2008), which is a binaural dummy head surround sound recording, and The Scent of Light (2008) a labor of five years.

Mary Fahl (formerly of October Project)

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

"Sounding like no other singer of her generation" (Allmusic.com), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC-based chamber-pop group OCTOBER PROJECT. The hallmark of their sound was Mary Fahl's awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication.Since the band disbanded, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" for V2 Records; her wonderful, original studio album "The Other Side of Time" on Sony Odyssey; and her acclaimed album "Love and Gravity". She has also written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song ("Going Home") for the Civil War epic Gods and Generals. Now Mary returns with her album "Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House", a collection of twenty-three tracks recorded live at one of America's oldest vaudeville theaters and filmed for PBS to be aired starting in late 2014. Fahl's elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as thinking man's folk-pop which she performs with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto that Boston Globe critic Steve Morse calls "a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms". Her upcoming performance will include "Exiles", a song written for Anne Rice's new audiobook "The Wolves of Midwinter", a stunning cover of the Joni Mitchell classic "Both Sides Now", and many October Project favorites.

He turns each song into his own with his own unique and powerful style touching emotions in you that only music can reach.

He also covers songs from “You Raise Me Up” to “Bridge over Troubled Waters”, “From a Distance” and “Something Inside So Strong” along with many more contemporary numbers. While Tommy’s music may be difficult to classify, fans use such words as “deeply emotional, romantic and sincere” to describe the feelings it evokes. One reviewer described his music as falling into a genre of Symphonic Pop that still awaits a name. Tommy’s unique talent has brought him worldwide recognition with several sell-out tours in Ireland, the UK, the US, Australia and Japan and he is now critically acclaimed to be one of the worlds’ finest singers of his generation. He also toured with the great Elaine Paige and Kenny Rogers in recent years. A Tommy Fleming concert is a musical experience not to be missed with one song more haunting than the other.

Eric Clapton - “His version of Danny Boy is the best I have ever heard bar none.”
The Boston Globe - “The dynamic voice of Tommy Fleming who soared on every song.”
New York Times - “The success of this concert was Tommy’s classic interpretation of The Leaving of Liverpool and The Auld Triangle – he had the audience on its feet”
Liam Neeson - “I hope he doesn’t take up acting.”

Acoustic Alchemy is the guitar-based duo that personifies what has come to be known as New Adult Contemporary music. With the release of This Way, Acoustic Alchemy's first album under Higher Octave/Narada Jazz's association with Blue Note Records, guitarists Greg Carmichael and Miles Gilderdale celebrate a remarkable two decades since 1987's Red Dust and Spanish Lace established the British ensemble as an ever evolving, powerhouse force in contemporary jazz. Their thousands of fans around the world may be feeling nostalgic, but the duo - while keeping their trademark acoustic guitar synergy front and center - Is clearly committed to forging ahead, following the laid back pop-soul vibe of American/English (2005) with their most aggressive and swinging, hard rocking and artfully jazzy disc to date. Join us for a night of enriching music with a group that is now twenty years in the making, yet still forging new sounds, styles and song-scapes.

Tyrone Wells "Cover to Cover" with Tony Lucca

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Tyrone Wells is 6 foot 4. He's bald because he�s never really liked his hair, so he just shaves it right off. He�s a white guy (a surprising fact to many). He has four older sisters. He originally hails from Washington State. His dad taught him how to yodel. He wanted to be a pro athlete, but wasn't even close to having what it takes. He picked up an acoustic guitar and fell in love. He's writing this bio. He's referring to himself in the third person. He believes Jesus is for real. He loves being a husband and a father. He's really normal and totally un-amazing. He tours quite a bit. He's trying to find some sort of balance in this crazy busy world. He's thinking about going back to a good old-fashioned flip phone. He's never written a "hit" song, but some people really like them anyways. He hopes you are "some people." He thinks maybe some day he will write a hit song, but he acknowledges that he also thought he would be a pro athlete. He likes to think that he sings from his soul. He is super stoked that you're checking him out right now. Thanks for reading & listening. Peace. A couple stat lines that my managers think might impress you:
-Over 50 placements in film/tv including "American Idol," "Grey's Anatomy," "Odd Life of Timothy Green," "Something Borrowed," "Vampire Diaries," "One Tree Hill," "Private Practice," and more.
-Where We Meet (2012): #1 iTunes Singer Songwriter album and Top Ten iTunes overall

Emporium Presents Andy McKee

Genre: Acoustic/Guitar
Doors: 6:30PM
Show: 7:30PM

Andy McKee is among the world?s finest acoustic guitarists. His youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique. McKee?s crossover success has helped him to achieve millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today?s most unique and influential artists. He has been featured as a cover story in both Acoustic Guitar Magazine in the U.S. and Acoustic Magazine in the UK, and is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters tours. McKee?s tour dates have taken him through Europe, Asia, Australia and North America, including tours with legendary acts including Prince and Dream Theater. Live performances of Andy?s have become a point of fascination with his loyal followers. So, in late 2015, Andy decided it was time to release a live album. Featuring tracks from his entire catalog,Live Book was recorded live in December 2015 at The Melting Point in Athens, GA, the Red Clay Music Foundry in Duluth, GA, and Workplay in Birmingham, AL. McKee went through the recordings from all three shows and selected the finest takes of each set. Reflecting on the song choices, he looks to provide current fans the chance to relive their favorite shows, and hopes that he can showcase the energy he creates for those who haven?t been able to attend a show and new fans alike. ?I?ve always wanted to do a live album; for quite a few years I?ve felt it?s something that has been missing from my collection of releases,? says McKee. ?This album will feature some of my YouTube hits like ?Drifting? and ?Rylynn?, some songs from my 2014 EP Mythmaker, and a cover of a Michael Hedges song called ?Because It?s There? played on harp guitar that I haven?t released yet.? McKee is the first artist to be signed CGP Sounds, the record label founded by fellow guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. ?I?m honored to be a part of his label. I heard Tommy 15 years ago at a festival in Kansas and was blown away by his playing and performing, and I still am,?

Live Book is set to be released digitally in Europe on February 12 and worldwide (digitally and physically) on April 22. The album, McKee?s first live record, will be released through CGP Sounds.

Genre: Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

An artist who has received Ivor Novello, Grammy, BASCAP awards along with a flotilla of gold and platinum records, really needs very little introduction. Musical success is seldom measured in time spans of more than a few years, if not Andy Warhol's often quoted "fifteen minutes", so the fact that by the time Midge's single "If I Was" went to No1 in 1985 he had already crammed several musical lifetimes into a 10 year professional career speaks volumes - Slik, The Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage, Ultravox and of course the most famous one off group in musical history Band Aid had by then all had the guiding hand of his musical navigation. Then you have to take account of Midge's musical directorship of a series of rock concerts for The Prince's Trust, Wicked Women for Breakthrough and in honour of Nelson Mandela; a Lord Provost award for services to Scottish music; record production for Phil Lynott, Steve Harley and countless others; his video direction of memorable hits by the Fun Boy Three, Bananarama and others, or a whole swathe of landmark singles by Ultravox; TV, theatre and film music credits ranging from 'Max Headroom' to stage and big screen.
