"Music saved my life," Austin Ellis explains. "When I was really down and nearly out, a song helped pick me up. If I can do that for someone, then the hard work is worthwhile."

Soothing, Engaging, Authentic. Austin Ellis captivates listeners with a unique voice and intimate acoustic style. Influenced by the smooth delivery of John Legend and laid back strumming of Jack Johnson, Ellis invites audiences to relax and enjoy the warmth of his songwriting and musicianship. Raised on equal doses of R&B and Rock, Ellis earned a degree in Songwriting and Music Business from the well-respected Recording Industry Program at Middle Tennessee State University. Hailing from North Beach, Maryland, Latin-American Ellis has toured the US and beyond, performing as far from home as Melbourne, Australia. He has shared the stage with established artists including SOJA, Sonya Kitchell, Jim Boggia, and Naked Blue, and was a finalist in the Mountain Stage Newsong Contest and Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. Ellis performs over 200 shows per year in support of both of his independent releases, one LP entitled "Coming of A.G.E" and a self-titled EP.
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.
CAMERON DEGURSKI
CAMERON DEGURSKI
"I'm not going to play anything I can't pour my heart into."

Straightforward, honest, and unapologetically raw, Arizona-native Cameron DeGurski (dee-grr-skee, ya'll) doesn't mind baring his soul behind the microphone.

With a catalog of tastefully re-arranged and soul-infused covers, DeGurski bridges genres from folk to funk, on a decade-spanning tear through iconic Rock, Pop, Soul, and Americana. Performing only what he can draw emotion from has created an eclectic collision of moody, deep-cut ballads, and uniquely swung Top 40 offerings.

"I'd rather play something that exudes emotion, and make an audience feel something, ANYTHING, than regurgitate the tunes you can play in any jukebox, at any bar in town. If you want the jukebox, I'll give you a quarter. If you want to share some energy, and leave feeling a little more human, 'I'm your Huckleberry.'"
