Tonight, Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes March To May’s Darren Guyaz & Beth Wesche to the Show.
March To May’s Darren Guyaz (guitar, vocals, keyboard) and Beth Wesche (Celtic harp, vocals) first met in December 2012. By March 2013, the folk/indie/Americana duo had co-written their first two songs, by April they had a paid gig under their belts, and by May they had a name and shows booked out into the months ahead. Before settling in Seattle, Washington, where the act is now based, both Darren and Beth had traversed the Western Hemisphere separately. Darren migrated from the northern Appalachians to his birth-state of Montana, before heading on a South American adventure across the Andes mountain range, eventually falling in love with Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. The daughter of a US Foreign Service Officer, Beth also spent time in the Andes, as well as a host of US states on both coasts, before moving to Seattle, just blocks from where her beloved Celtic harp had been created, years before. The duo has drawn comparisons to acts like The Civil Wars, Damien Rice, the Swell Season, The Banner Days, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Western music is not to be confused with Country music. Western music is a form of American folk music composed by and about the people who settled and worked throughout the Western United States and Western Canada. The Mexican folk music of the American Southwest also influenced the development of this genre. With the Traditional Western being a genre of various arts, such as comics, fiction, film, games, radio, television and music, getting "westerns" published and in the hands of fans can also be confusing and a challenge to understand. Tonight we learn about today's contemporary western music and about how today's publishing experts get the western genre to market.

Billy Conway, who played drums in my parents’ band, and the rock band Morphine, took me aside one night and asked me when I was going to start writing my own songs. I thought that was a pretty good question.” So Reed got to work, and in his late teens.After a move to Colorado, Reed’s clear tenor, emotional songwriting, and undeniable charisma as a front man launched Acoustic Junction in 1989, which developed a cult following in the jam- band era of the 90s. The band released six albums, a collaboration with Graham Nash, and was signed to Capricorn Records and later Mercury Records. Reed found a new kind of success in short trips once or twice a year to Los Angeles, New York and Nashville that earned him placements on the silver screen, television, and commercials. Heput what money he could from the royalties to make three solo records: Spark (2004), Stoned Beautiful (2007), and Once an Ocean (2009) Country legend Lee Ann Womack’s September 2014 release leads with his song “Fly.”Lost in the West is a soundtrack for the invisible cinema of the mind. It features seven songs combining Reed’s powerful lyrics and vocal performance set against wide-open landscapes painted with Stratocaster and Wurlitzer. A deeply talented and accomplished cast joins Reed as producers, performers, and co-writers on this record. John also delivers a masterful performance on percussion, and Jefferson’s varied guitar work shines throughout the record. Anaïs Mitchel sings on “Rags and Bones” and “Four Lanes.” Frazey Ford appears on “Caroline” and “Steal Away.” Reed co-wrote “Caroline” with Esmé Patterson, founding member of Paper Bird, and he teamed with Gregory Alan Isakov to write “Rodeo Clown.”The choices Reed has made earned him the respect of his industry peers on one hand, and his loved-ones on the other.
Glenn Kaiser has been singing the blues - and sometimes soul, R&B or rock - since he was twelve years old.
Growing up in a poor family living hand-to-mouth in central Wisconsin, Glenn eventually gravitated to Milwaukee’s local music scene where he fronted over a dozen bands, as well as writing and performing solo acoustic music, all before turning nineteen years of age. With his adolescence plagued by drug and alcohol abuse, Glenn got clean through following Jesus after a life-changing spiritual confrontation right around his eighteenth birthday. During this time his music got heavier and in many ways, deeper. His former song writing motif of celebrating drugs, sex and other vices gave way to lyrics about spiritual struggles: personal temptation, institutional sin, poverty, exploitation, racism, materialism and other issues that few musicians seemed willing to tackle.
Now after more than three decades of making original music, Kaiser is known for his raw, bluesy vocals, firey guitar playing, bottleneck slide and harmonica work on thirty recordings and innumerable live shows. Glenn and his family have lived in Chicago’s inner city for over thirty years doing mission work with people who live as he once did.
Kaiser has released several acoustic-based cds in between his electric blues and blues/rock albums. His seminal delta blues projects “Trimmed and Burnin’” and follow-up “Slow Burn” (both with harp-player/singer Darrell Mansfield) established him as a singular and authentic christian bluesman. Three contemporary worship albums along with the folk-pop “Time Will Tell”, fill out the acoustic discography. Acoustic cuts also comprise half of Kaiser’s critically acclaimed “Ripley County Blues” project recorded in a log cabin lodge in rural Missouri.

Nelson Alburquenque bio:
Nelson Alburquenque is a songwriter and poet from North Hollywood, California. He is known as the rhythm guitarist for the band Tikal Sun.
Born in Santiago, Chile, Alburquenque was adopted at the age of two years old and grew up in the suburbs of Washington, DC, the son of second generation Jewish-European Americans.
Alburquenque, most notable for his composition work in Tikal Sun, first discovered the acoustic guitar at 15 years old in 2004. Learning did not come easy, as Alburquenque soon found his hands were too small to form both basic and complex bar chords. After a year of taking a hiatus from learning guitar, Alburquenque re-tuned his strings in his Sophomore year of high-school, thereby bringing the notes closer to his hand. Throughout the years, Alburquenque has modified his original tuning, in addition to creating additional alternative tunings, all of which Alburquenque continues use to paint his musical landscapes within Tikal Sun.
Today, Alburquenque has independently authored over 150 songs, contributing all rhythm guitar for Tikal Sun.
While Alburquenque’s native/Inidgeni music is unique and often earns the praise of his peers, Alburquenque himself remains humble and generous in his relations with his fellow artists. A follower of his own spiritual philosophy, nyi, Alburquenque’s dream for the world is to see the recognition and preservation of all indigenous communities around the globe. Through his Indigeni music in Tikal Sun, Alburquenque hopes to honor and shed light on the Native voice.
He is 26 years-old.
