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.

Los Pochos

What is a Pocho? One who lacks proficiency in Spanish but is of Mexican descent. So with that out of the way who are Los Pochos?

Los Pochos is a three Spanish guitar and vocal collaboration born in Venice Beach, CA. Band members Isaac Irvin (from El Paso, Texas), Michael Jost (from Frankfurt, Germany) and Rick Boston (from Alberta, Canada) started playing together in Venice for fun, but soon were being asked to play at parties and art shows.

Isaac Irvin sings in Spanish and English and this combination makes for a great blend of Tex Mex and south of the border vocals. Michael Jost is an accomplished flamenco and rock guitarist and is also a record producer with his own eclectic Radio Venice weekly internet broadcast. Rick Boston is a multi instrumentalist, musician, film composer and record producer, now enamored with his Spanish gut string guitar.

With Mexican rock songs such as Negra Tomasa and Cuban traditional El Quarta de Tula the three pochos dig into these Latin sounds with the fun of a Manu Chao but the instrumental skill of a Gypsy King. Well, almost!

Miss Olivia and The Interlopers

Miss Olivia and The Interlopers is a band from Tucson, Arizona, currently recording our debut album. We pull from from all of our influences and try to make the best music we can make. Our sound is a pinch of Erykah Badu soul, a drop of gospel-tinged blues of The Black Crowes. And a mishmash of everything else in between.

Phenomenal musicianship with the forte focusing on the art of variation. MOI gives rise to a fresh jazz, rock and R&B sound.

We are honored to have been voted runner up to Calexico as Best Musical Act in the 2018 Tucson Weekly.
