Cristina Vane

Based out of Nashville, Tennessee, Cristina Vane is taking the town by storm with her unique blend of blues and folk. Originally from Europe, she draws from such a great host of influences that it is impossible to compare her music to any one artist. That being said, she draws decisively from country blues, delta blues, and American folk music, creating her own flavor of the blues. Whether on the Venice boardwalk busking by the beach or on a stage in Mississippi, her signature resonator bottleneck playing and powerful vocals are unmistakable and unforgettable.

Before falling in love with the blues, Cristina spent her childhood and adolescence studying classical voice, music theory, piano and flute, ever consumed by music. She has love for many kinds of music, ranging from baroque classical to punk and metal. This theme continues throughout her career today; while she predominantly plays slide guitar, she employs fingerpicking, acoustic, electric guitar techniques, as well as clawhammer banjo playing.

David Sparrow

David Sparrow’s natural penchant for melody and songcraft has permeated the local Los Angeles and greater Maryland music communities for the past fifteen years. A Baltimore native, David relocated to Los Angeles, forming the Americana-rock outfit The Whiskey Saints. After releasing albums West and 24 Hours, The Whiskey Saints would soon evolve into the more straight-ahead rock grooves of Burning Jet Black. David Sparrow’s songwriting contributions like “Tennessee” and “Jessica” would provide melodic and pop sensibilities in the Paul McCartney ethic, while his performances as the lead vocalist compliments the songs written by bandmate and collaborator Dave Bloomfield with a soulful weight in songs like “Under Los Angeles” and “Saved.”

When Burning Jet Black ran its course at the end of 2016, David had built up a substantial wealth of songs while performing solo stints around the west side of L.A. By 2017 production began on his debut solo album titled Beggars and Choosers. Released in March of 2019, Beggars and Choosers represents a capstone of David’s time in Los Angeles. The album swells back and forth between tones of optimism, melancholy, romanticism, and confessional openness.

Since the release of Beggars and Choosers, David has since returned to Maryland to be closer to family. He continues to perform in and around the Maryland area and new singles are currently in the works to be released through 2021.
