Peggy Watson is a unique musician. She is recognized as one of San Diego's leading acoustic singer/songwriters but has been embraced by the jazz and pop world as well. With a wide vocal range, her smooth, emotional voice effortlessly moves between contemporary folk stylings, smokey jazz, or powerful pop ballads. She is a fine songwriter/guitarist who moves her audience from tears to laughter with her relevant and touching songs.
His passionate and compelling voice is what they notice first. As a solo artist, Ken O’Malley easily commands the room; with his band he also rocks the house. Quickly drawing the audience in, it is no wonder that the Irish News describes him “without question, as the single most enduring, influential and proficient of all Irish musicians in Southern California” and the University of St. Thomas at Houston acknowledges him to be "widely regarded as the finest Irish folk singer/songwriter in the United States today."
Swing West is Southern California's premier Western Swing band delivering an energetic, entertaining and often humorous form of Americana that blends the elements of Jazz and Country.
Their repertoire covers the classics of the era of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys and continues right up to music of today that retains the spirit and tradition of the genre.
Ronstadt Generations represents the multi-cultural roots America was founded upon. Dating back five generations in North America, Michael J. Ronstadt, younger brother of Linda Ronstadt, continues the family tradition with his two sons, Michael G. and Petie.
These three voices -- all multi-instrumentalists and solo artists in their own right -- bring to life a repertoire that reaches back to the end of the 19th century while continually looking ahead into the 21st, with a rich innovation of original material alongside traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs.
One reviewer recently tried to capture the essence of Chris Proctor’s music: “What to call his unique melange of styles? There’s an aspect of Americana in the echoes of Appalachian and old-timey styles that are apparent in just about every track, but there are also elements of jazz, Celtic folk, and a dash of blues in here somewhere. What Proctor does is create guitar music that reflects the whole heritage of the instrument and still has his own distinct stamp — a tall order, but he’s up to the job”
Tim Atkins,guitar, vocals, was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I remember the first time I ever heard the Blues. I was seven years old. My Father brought home a Pete Fountain album Live at the Bateau Lounge. The instrumentation was Clarinet, stand-up bass, piano and drums. During the second verse of the solo on Nobody Knows The Trouble I Seen Pete Fountain hits and holds this long, wailing note and when he resolves it the audience reacts audibly and I found myself involuntarily joining them.
Pioneer flatpicker Dan Crary, and longtime singer/songwriter Steve Spurgin have recently been joined by Martin Stevens, a multi-instrumentalist and singer from the Northwest. A shared passion for the music itself created the ensemble: Dan Crary & Thunderation.
