St. John’s Dance

He’s from West Virginia. She’s from California. They fell in love, music is the byproduct. Xander Hitzig’s rich instrumental mastery and lyricism meets Nicole Olney’s powerful songwriting and sweet strumming in perfect harmony with their brand new duet project called St. John’s Dance. Their songs pay refreshing homage to country-folk heroes of the past and present while formulating an entirely new sound of their own. They highlight what is grounded and true in music from both sides of the American continent resulting in a tasty cocktail of blended genre reckoning the likes of many such as The Carter Family, Woodie Guthrie, Mandolin Orange, And Townes Van Zandt.

St. John’s Dance formed in Los Angeles officially within the last year and is about to release their first EP in the spring.

Markie Erin

An Ohio native and LA transplant, Markie Erin is a multi-instrumentalist with an emphasis on vocals, keys, and guitar.

Drawing inspiration from emotive indie songwriters like Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers, Markie’s music is an open exploration of self-identity. Her emphasis on expressive lyrics draws you into her world, residual traumas and all.

As a solo act, Markie uses repetitive guitar motifs to underlay her feelings. Her repertoire of composed work includes myriad intimate acoustic recordings, and a series of singles, precursors to an album, heavily reliant on ambient guitar and intentional piano melodies. She’s focused on the release of her first album, Eternities, in the coming months, in addition to playing locally in Los Angeles.

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 »
