Michael Jost

Born in Dreieich, just outside of Frankfurt Germany, guitarist Michael Jost (pronounced ‘yoast’), found his way to the bohemian Venice Beach boardwalk, in Los Angeles California, where he now lives and makes music.

Owing to Michael’s unique European heritage, his rigorous classical training, and his 21st Century American experience, you can hear something very different in his passionate, Spanish-style guitar. Michael’s travel companion is Miss Lucy, a Flamenca guitar built by Tomas Delgado of Candelas Guitars. She has a strong character, with a warm and beautiful sound.

Michael has a unique sound. His music is a journey in time and space fueled by his passion for music and his instrument. His influences are very multicoloured and involve different styles, continents and time periods from Paco De Lucia and Stravinsky to Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd.

No two of Michael’s live performances are ever the same, drawing from his recent albums, Zeitlos and California Burning, as well as unreleased songs from his upcoming album, Concierto.

Zeitlos is a timeless and unique blend of acoustic, classical and flamenco styles, entwined with the sounds and soul of Venice, California. His earlier album, California Burning, is a psychedelic fusion of electric and acoustic guitar. more Michael Jost »

Eugene Boronow

“Someday, I know, we’ll walk in the sun…”

After more than 20 years away from music, Eugene returned (in 2015) with only his classical guitar remaining, and re-learned his craft by studying the music he was listening to at the time: Brazilian Bossa Nova.

Developing a small repertoire, Eugene began playing at open mics in the Tucson area, and also began writing music (which he hadn’t done in the previous musical life).

Three years after having picked up the guitar again, Eugene was playing weekly gigs in the Tucson area, and had completed a 7-song EP of original compositions.

Eugene recently joined LA artist Aaron Gilmartin at the Field Trippin Music Festival (Taos, NM) as accompanying guitarist. Currently he plays as The Eugene Boronow Duo, performing sets of originals an Bossa-Nova covers. Eugene is also lead guitarist in another band, Natty & The Sunset, performing songs from artist Natalie Pohanic.

Rusty Tinder

Imagine if Billy Joel started a band with Zac Brown & Gram Parsons. That’s Rusty Tinder!

The singer-songwriter began taking piano lessons when he was six years old, and like most boys decided that sports and girls were more important when he was going into high school. When he told his mom he was quitting piano, she made him take choir. Though 14-year-old Rusty was completely devastated, he now reflects on that choice with gratefulness. Choir galvanized his love for music and made him realize he wanted to share his gift with the world.

After high school graduation, Rusty took his newfound love for singing to new levels by studying Opera in college, though it didn’t last long. In school, Rusty came to the conclusion that he preferred writing his own music and playing in bands. He ended up getting the most general music degree Washington State University had to offer and moved to the Midwest, where he started several jazz-rock bands.

Oddly enough, it was moving back to the West Coast that made the young musician fall in love with country music — a genre he used to make fun of.
