BRIAN CHARTRAND & THE PROJECT
BRIAN CHARTRAND & THE PROJECT
Often described as “James Taylor meets Steely Dan,” Brian Chartrand & The Project’s latest studio album “Worth The Fight” (2014) weaves between americana, classic singer/songwriter, and jazz inspired melodies. Brian Chartrand, originally from MA, has a vocal and guitar style that is similar to Taylor, his musical hero and fellow Massachusetts resident. Brian’s amazing backing band, The Project has evolved since its inception in 2009 but has come to feature four of the world’s finest musicians who just happen to live here in AZ; Adam Armijo, Lamar Gaines, Mario Mendivil, and Todd Chuba. Chartrand’s writing is clear and evokative, and often quite personal. The music is inspired and artful.
JAY ALLAN & THE UNCOMMON GOOD
JAY ALLAN & THE UNCOMMON GOOD
Colorado-born and Phoenix, AZ based singer/songwriter Jay Allan is continuously getting back to his roots. Whether they be musical, of family & friends or that of his own adventurous heart & soul, Jay's roots are what have brought him to where he is today. As he sees it and expresses through his music and art, it is a very joyous, inspirational, yet perpetually growing and kinetic place in life. Jay has been playing and performing for over 15 years and has made music his sole profession for the past 5 years. With eight albums and counting under his musical belt, multiple projects, countless shows and tours (local, national and international) including sharing the stage with numerous influential people, Jay Allan is quite the experienced and motivated little songster. Add to all that his recent marriage and the arrival of his beautiful baby girl and you've got the makings of a radiantly happy Jay.
Jay Allan plays what is known to his fans as funky-folk, blues rock. Channeling honest passion and raw emotion through his own life and observations, he continues to gain fans and notoriety locally and nationally. He combines heartfelt and memorable lyrics with genre-bending styles and melodies in his long list of ever-evolving original songs that range from that of joy, love, loss, gratitude and searching and are often outlined with an insightful and sometimes humorous touch. While remaining true to his own roots, Jay often taps into and pays homage to such influences as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, The Black Crowes and far too many artists and songwriters, old and new, to name. You could say Jay relishes in the inspiration brought on by his favorite artists.
