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 »

Talia Keys

Tal·i·a Keys noun
a genre crossing multi-instrumental musical force of performing art, bringing you her brand of Soul-Funk-Rock n’ Roll

This Salt Lake City “musical powerhouse” is known for sourcing energies largely compared to the bluesy rawness of Janis Joplin and the fire of Jimi Hendrix. Synergizing that old soul vibe with new school sounds, best described by Katie Bain as “blistering.” Having been “struck by her talent, stage presence and refreshing candor.” – Insomniac: 2014 Best of Electric Forest

Talia is currently focused on two main projects, Talia Keys & The Love, a heavy hitting five member band and Gemini Mind, a full electric solo live looping show that creates a big sound. In addition to performing, she writes, produces and records her original material, releasing four albums so far.

Brother Billy Stobo

Born from the tradition of bringing good stories to music, Brother Billy’s first release “Don’t Fall Asleep on the Tracks” has conjured up spirits of the past with tales of jilted love, pointed historical commentary, and folks having raucous good time.

With the evocative puberty anthem “Red Ribbon” to the cynical retort of “Your Grand Design” he gets right to the sweet, the sad, and the naughty.

His Hopeless Choir is a revolving door of many talented musicians that give a little to help a lot in lifting up the spirit of his oh-so-spirited music.

From the snow-capped mountains of Oklahoma to the pale-painted deserts of Louisiana – from the coal-firing cost of California to the sweeping serenity of New York City – everyone could use the kind of smile that comes from spending a little time with Brother Billy.

How Mean

Lead singer/guitarist Nick Foy and drummer Sam Cook recently teamed up to form How Mean after a late night, half-baked idea came to fruition. Originally from Mass, Foy and Cook strive to offer audiences more of a show than a concert, packing a greater punch than anyone would expect from a two man act.

Drawing influence from bands like Led Zeppelin and Brand New, How Mean’s way of reimagining familiar classics makes every song sound new again, combined with an equal dose of clever, crowd-pleasing originals which, according to Cook, fall under the genre of “gentle pressure.” As they continue to play more local shows, they look forward to expanding their act across the Los Angeles music scene. “We’re not here to make a living,” Foy says. “We’re here to make a killing.”

Mercy Jones brings funky bluesy rock originals to Los Angeles.

Chris Nash has a signature blues style only he can play, with complex finger-picking and slide guitar. Nash’s vocal resonation is far reaching, emphasized by fine-tuned, melodic tones. Nash was originally discovered by John Hammond Sr., at the age of fourteen.

Chris has had several publishing deals, was in popular film and TV, and his band was featured in Rolling Stone magazines, as well as other national publications.

Jenny Zepp (vocals and harmonica): Adding another layer to Mercy Jones is the raw energy of Jenny Zepp, magnetizing their live shows. She lights up the stage,yet writing is her main passion. Working with Chris Nash for several years, they have been able to create the lyrical messaging together, which centers on the angel of mercy, Mercy Jones, who is meant to raise the vibration of humanity through the sounds and words of the collective group.

Carol McArthur (vocals & guitar): This singer/songwriter has â The Voice of an Angel, and we agree with reviewer Joe Stats referring to her solo album “How Good it Feels” featuring Dan Weinstein and Brad Kay. She has been performing in front of an audience since age six and has performed with the likes of Gerry Goffin, Barry Goldberg, The Bonedaddys, and many more. Her influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Kate Bush, The Beatles, Elton John, and Nina Simone, to name a few.
