JAY ALLAN
JAY ALLAN
Colorado-born and Phoenix, AZ based singer/songwriter 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. Jay has performed in venues and festivals big and small in 30+ states across the United States and has also performed in Mexico, Costa Rica and the British Virgin Islands. He has shared the studio and stage with countless acts including G. Love, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Umphrey’s Mcgee, Martin Sexton, Tony Lucca, Ryan Montbleau and many more.
DAWN & HAWKS
Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes met when he crossed an Austin barroom floor and asked her to dance. The first time they sang together they found a sound Texas Monthly calls "undeniably intimate".

Their initial duo effort, Golden Heart, climbed to No. 25 in Billboard’s Folk chart and landed at No. 2 in iTunes singer-songwriter albums and kicked off a whirlwind of constant cross-country touring and performances with artists like Patty Griffin, Dan Tyminski & Alison Krauss, Chris Issak, Old 97s, Robert Earl Keen, and showcases at festivals including Austin City Limits, Folk Alliance, AmericanaFest, South By Southwest and TEDx.

Their most recent album, Yours and Mine, is foremost a celebration of life’s beautiful moments that make us want to take another breath and another step – despite uncertainty.

"If you're searching and you find you're not so alone, Let's go there to find that silver line”
BLAINE LONG
BLAINE LONG
As a singer-songwriter, Blaine Long has been on a musical journey for more than 15 years. But over the last twelve months, with the release of two new CDs, Honey in My Coffee and Rescue Your Doubt, this unique artist has most definitely arrived. Born and raised in Arizona, Long was a high school dropout who had to learn the hard way, from serving up fast food to digging ditches and odd jobs. While on the run from a strict Christian upbringing and the seeming conventions of daily life, Blaine discovered guitar, singing and especially songwriting. After fronting original bands during the '90s, he started perfecting his solo acoustic skills and began playing solo at coffee shops and bars, moving around to Boulder, San Diego, and wherever music would take him. During that time, he met (while painting her house) the woman who would become his wife. They married in July 2007 and immediately moved back to Arizona. Blaine released Honey in My Coffee in June 2010, an album describing the achievement of a happy home life over the struggles of typical self-destructive musician's lifestyle. This was followed up by Rescue Your Doubt in January 2011. Today Blaine Long's music is marked by warm and soulful vocals and a powerful rhythmic acoustic guitar style. His honest songs are a treat whether he's playing solo, as a duo with Dilli on harmonica, or with a full band.
