David Sparrow spent his formative years playing bars and clubs in and around Baltimore, MD but the music bug brought him to Los Angeles in the summer of 2003. After a 12-year run with Los Angeles based band Burning Jet Black, Sparrow has struck out on his own, with original music reminiscent of Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell, and Elliott Smith.
“Beggars and Choosers”, his first official solo album will be released on March 2, 2019.
Melodic is the simplest way to describe it.
Produced in no small part by Stephen Coler (Lost Beat 6 Records) and Rob Conrad (Fiskit Studios) this album is bringing to life a full realization of Sparrow’s songs old and new.
David is also a member of the Mercury Sound Club.

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.
