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 SouthAmerican adventure across the Andes mountain range, eventually falling in love with Seattle andthe Pacific Northwest. The daughter of a US Foreign Service Officer, Beth also spent time in theAndes, as well as a host of US states on both coasts, before moving to Seattle, just blocks fromwhere 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 andAlison Krauss. The Water’s Edge is the debut release from March To May, out April 25th, 2015.For more information, visit www.marchtomay.com.
2J is an American Rap, R&B, and Hip-hop group from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. It consists of Jerry Williams and Julius McCullum, which is how the name 2J came about. The group was formed in 2014, when the idea of doing a positive rap song came about. Living in a world filled with violence, and things of that nature, a positive song seemed like the best option. Julius got into music at a young age, when he was around 8 or 9 years old. He used to listen to different types of music like rock, rap, and even country music. He enjoyed different types of music, which inspired him as he got older and started writing music himself, mainly rock, country, and then later rap. That's when he got in touch with his friend Jerry and they started laying tracks together. Growing up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, music hasn't been the easiest thing to do for a young black man. Coming from a small town called Columbia, Mississippi, Jerry Williams had been doing music for as long as he could remember. He got into Gospel Rap when he was 15 years old. From there he continued to do Gospel rap for 5 years, with his singer Kayla Brown. It was the perfect match between the two, so they called themselves Voices of Praise. Even though they never released any music commercially, they still have a fan base of 10k and more. After that, Jerry moved on to just recording individual and making beats.
Fast forward to 2014 when 2J was formed. The first song they did together was called "Trouble Risen." Looking at the local situation and looking at the world view point, led to the idea to do "Whats Wrong with the World." The song is meant to build individuals up. A positive rap song, meant to reach everyone, from young to old. With God helping them every step of the way, they are hoping to be a success and help to bless others on the way with this journey.
When is the right time to take a chance? Who are the right people? What are the right conditions? Neither Darren nor Beth re...alized the musical potential they had when they first met in December 2012. It took several chance encounters -- passing vocal harmonies on a trip to the coast with friends, tentative instrumental work one cold winter evening, comments here and there on lyrics and melody -- before the spark hit. But when it did, it didn't take long for them to catch fire. After playing over 50 shows in less than two years, they are releasing their debut album, The Water's Edge, in April 2015. http://www.marchtomay.com
March to May formed in the Spring of 2013 as a collaboration between singer/songwriters Darren Guyaz and Beth Wesche. Overla...ying Celtic folk harp, guitar & keyboards with rich vocal harmonies, they sing deeply relatable stories of every day life and what it means to love, to live, and to reach beyond what seems possible. They sing from the heart, and carry the listener to a place within their own imagination, their own story.
