Fort Defiance

Fort Defiance is an Americana duo from Nashville, Tennessee, hailed for their honest songwriting, timeless harmonies, and high-energy stage performance.

After weekend runs and short tours, the husband and wife moved into their van and began touring relentlessly – playing over 250 shows, in 46 states the first year, without the help of management or outside booking agents – and they haven’t slowed down since.

Their passion and grassroots sincerity has garnered heavy attention from around the country, causing critics to call them “breathtakingly seductive” (That Music Mag) and “Good, honest, and full of real heart” (Orlando Weekly).

Their newest release, a crowd-funded effort called The Haunts of Youth, was made available in March 2017.

Sunny War

“…her right thumb plunks the bass part while her forefinger upstrokes notes and chords, leaving the other three fingers unused. A banjo technique, it’s also used by acoustic blues guitarists. Her fingers are long and strong – Robert Johnson hands – in jarring contrast to the waif they’re attached to. The walking bass line sounds like a hammer striking piano keys in perfect meter, while the fills are dynamic flurries – like cluster bombs. I haven’t heard a young guitarist this dexterous and ass-kicking in eons.” – Michael Simmons, L.A Weekly

Runson Willis III

He never misses a note. With over 10 years of experience with the guitar combined with his extensive performing and touring record, Runson Willis III is finally ready to embark on his solo career. The Los Angeles based artist, calls on his idols, Isaac Hayes, Aretha Franklin, Willie Guthrie and Willie Nelson as constant reminder of the level of greatness he is working toward. With roots in the deep south, you can hear the soul in every lyric he sings and note he plays.

Runson is geared up and ready to bring his music to the world! From his own words:

“this guitar is noisy, beat up and it may have a lot of scratches on it. But it’s true, it’s lasted a long time and it hasn’t gone anywhere. And I think it’s like me.”

Dean

DEAN is Isaac Irvin (guitar/vocals), Michael Jost (bass) and Kevin Witucki (drums).

Following the 2015 solo EP release, primary songwriter and guitarist Isaac Irvin didn’t give fans any time to lament instead he hit the ground running with his new project DEAN, a harder-edged continuation of his work. Since then Isaac has proven himself quite the frontman, impressing audiences around LA with rollicking performances of tunes like “Walk Away” and “Alive”. He throws in a few classic numbers like “Silverlake” and “holding on to you” for good measure, ensuring fans both old and new get to rock out to their favorite jams.
