The sound of Andrea DeMarcus and Dave Kirslis exhibits skilled and articulate guitar picking honed in the dive bars of Atlanta over rolling Julliard-trained bass lines.

MARSHALL CRENSHAW is best known for his song ''Someday, Someway'', a Top 40 hit in 1982 and is a noted guitarist who uses offbeat chord progressions and concise solos. His music is rooted in classic soul music, British Invasion songcraft, Burt Bacharach and Buddy Holly, whom Crenshaw was often compared to early in his career. So much so that he portrayed him in the 1987 film 'La Bamba'. When THE BOTTLE ROCKETS hit the scene in the mid ‘90s, the world wasn’t quite sure what to do with them. With punk-rock pedigrees and arena-rock energy; tougher-than-Springsteen storytelling; and romantic hearts sewn bare on their denim sleeves, The Bottle Rockets confounded musical generalities as they laid waste to clubs across the Midwest and then, soon enough, the nation. www.MarshallCrenshaw.com www.BottleRocketsMusic.com ... read more

In that time, he has opened for Ted Nugent, Puddle of Mudd, Uncle Cracker, and Chris Knight, been featured on ABC's Rising Star competition, and was an invited performer at Nashville's famous Bluebird Cafe. His journey started while playing for the professional baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies organization in Clearwater, Florida, Rye bought his first guitar. He’d had a lifelong passion for music and had wanted to learn to play. He figured since he had days to kill between games, now would be the perfect time. So he bought a cheap guitar and, as he puts it, “That was the spark that started the fire. I started learning and strumming chords and fell in love with songwriting, plus the guys liked to hear me sing.” ... read more

From the firecracker guitar playing of Bolley to the delicate mandolin of Wheeler, the propulsive bass of Lasater to the banjo poetry of Tetlow, the lap steel and button box swells to the harp and guitar rhythms of Shaw, Roxie Watson weaves a rich sound.
