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.

Tonight Pop Art Painter, Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes Everett Coast (Pop /Folk) out of Southern CA
Everett Coast, the acoustic guitar driven duo of woven voices and fused songwriting, was founded in early 2011 by singer-songwriters, Danny Byrne and Josh Misko. Everett Coast writes and produces all their own original material as well as co-writes across a wide variety of music genres from pop and hip-hop to folk and country. Influenced by such artists as John Mayer, Jason Mraz, The Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons, Everett Coast creates with the intention to not only stay current in today’s music industry but to also keep the influence of the greats, such as America, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, The Everly Brothers, and of course, Simon and Garfunkel.
Neil Godfrey and Pete Murray have been writing music together for almost 20 years in Southern California. While they began their musical journeys in heavy, rock based projects, glimpses of the majestic electro melodic sound that is Life on Planet 9 can be heard in some of their earliest records. Life on Planet 9 was introduced to the world in 2011 with it’s debut release “Bittersweet.” Featuring a more acoustic/electronic sound, Murray admits the record was born out of a “need to find a home for several acoustic, down tempo songs we had in the archives that didn’t fit in with the other projects we had going on at the time. I feel like with this second album, we’ve really embraced what this is.” Surely this second record represents the duo’s Sistine Chapel to date. Massive walls of gushing guitar melodies are intertwined with equally massive vocal beds – all rooted in thumping electronic beats and atmospherics. Godfrey describes this record as “more about creating the passion of the music...what makes us happy, what drives us.” “The Theory of Everything” will be available worldwide August 26, 2014 at cdbaby.com, itunes, amazon and most other electronic outlets.

Benson The Dog, made up of Ben Westlund and Will Hanson, are a dynamical and comical two man acoustic pop band from Denver, brandishing a tight rhythm along with a skilled harmony. Their cleverly crafted tracks like the sweetly bitter “I really hate Valentine’s day” the coming of age “Pusscake”, or their most recent, and soulfully delivered debut of “More than ok” and the pop dizzy ”Perfect for Me”, (to be exclusively performed that evening), are perfected with articulate precision for the consciousness while offering up a generous portion to the funny bone
Valley, Alabama musician Daniel Brooks got his musical start as the bass player for a local cover band, Fifth Element in 2003, where he cut his teeth playing many bars and private parties. In 2006, while in college in Troy, Alabama, he met a fellow musician and formed the duo Stoned Cold Happiness. Stoned Cold Happiness would continue to play weekly around the local music scene until 2008. In 2009 Daniel would begin to venture into solo music, focusing on honing his skills on the acoustic guitar. In 2012, by happenstance of a late night jam session, Daniel and fellow musician Brett McDaniel laid the groundwork for Daniel & McDaniel, an Americana-Folk inspired acoustic duo. In early 2015, Daniel and Robbie Sellers formed the duo Pell Avenue and are currently working on their first album while playing the Southeast. Currently Daniel is also working on a rock/county acoustic duo with his brother, former lead singer of Fifth Element, MarDe Brooks under the name Brooks. Be on the lookout for Daniel as his music career progresses.

Tonight Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes back Pop/Dance Singer/Songwriter Holly Elle to the Show!
An electrifying bond of authenticity links modern chanteuse Holly Elle’s radiant voice to lyrics, melodies and beats. With soul infused pop as a point of reference – and the mantra “No labels, no rules, no limits” – Holly arrives with verve, vision and vibe.
While the press might portray Holly as a “Pop Powerhouse” there are far more complex dimensions to her ever-evolving artistry. Whether fronting a full throttle band, commanding a concert stage with electronic tracks or in an intimate venue accompanied by only an acoustic guitarist, she is equally enthralling. “The whole point of making music is for me to connect,” she confirms.
