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.

DLEE

With no formal music education, DLee’s innate musical talent manifested itself, from a young age, as he began singing in the church choir. A love for bass playing ensued, aged ten, which organically led to creating tunes and writing lyrics.

Born in Beaumont, Texas, and with strong familial roots in the deep south, his exposure to the world of music was intense, from Gospel and high school jazz band to a home life filled with musical culture, encouraged by his family. DLee was able to hone his musical gifts for melody and lyrics, influenced by such greats as Otis Redding, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield.

Self-taught in various instruments, he continually developed his own unique sound, while concurrently excelling in basketball at Loyola Marymount University, which took him professionally to Europe. There, a major modeling agency also scouted his look, and launched a successful modeling career, appearing in over hundred national commercials, affording him time to further hone his craft, in his first love, music. Guitar in hand, along the way, his prolific flair for singing/songwriting became recognized by the industry.

Dedicated and passionate, DLee was able to establish himself as a fulltime musician/producer, working with the likes of Macy Gray, Kim Hill, Monk, Medusa, Keaton Simons. DLee has also collaborated with Leon Ware ( Marvin Gaye ‘I want you’) and James Gadson, written lyrics and shared vocals with Adrian Younge and Will Hart of The Delfonics, and composed music for film and TV commercials. Screen work has included musical supervision and composition for Cassidy Way, The Road to Redemption, A Scanner Darkly and The Making of 300 the movie.

Together with actor/singer Gary Dourdan as Sugar Free the Band, DLee has toured the US, the West Indies, France, Morocco and Dubai, including a number of charity performances. The album ‘Soul Revival’ was DLee’s first episode as a solo artist, featuring ten songs that are a pure expression of his heart and soul. Currently, DLee is putting the finishing touches on his follow-up album – release date to be advised.

Tim Bennett

Tim is currently, for some strange reason, an obsessive stop motion animator. I know?? There was a time.. actually it was all of the time before now, that Tim would scarcely be spotted in the same place for longer than his musical adventures permitted.

Someone wrote this about him after seeing him on stage once:

“With a heart as big as the Aussie desert and a voice kind enough to soothe the Rockies, Tim Bennett’s solo show is a feast for the senses.”

Another, very brilliant artist from Canada wrote this about Tim’s Ep “Crystal Water” that he released in 2014.

“First off it must be noted that this music is sexy. Not a funky kind of sexy, but a yearning, sophisticated, understated, deep sexy that comes from someone who knows how to hold back.” Brian MacMillan

Pretty cool dude.

This could be Tim writing his own bio right now, pretending to be one of his goofy friends. He has goofy friends though, so you’ll never know.

Apparently there is more music on the boiler.. likely getting over cooked due to his current distractions. Stay tuned!

oH! His older brother, Josh Bennett, who is an aMAZing artist.. oh my god.. anyway, he sent in some words of support too:

“Tim, “The Emperor” Bennett was born into a musical family and ran with it. He’s awesome. Buy his stuff/hire him. The end.”
