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

Following the 2015 solo EP release, songwriter and guitarist Isaac Irvin didn’t give fans any time to lament instead he hit the ground running with his new project DEAN, a harder-edged continuation of his work. Since then Isaac has proven himself quite the frontman, impressing audiences around LA with rollicking performances of tunes like “Walk Away” and “Alive”. He throws in a few classic numbers like “Silverlake” and “holding on to you” for good measure, ensuring fans both old and new get to rock out to their favorite jams.
Isaac is also passionate about mixing up his Latin heritage with the folk rock world with his unique blend of bicultural music. It is through Isaac’s collection of powerful Folk/Latin rock songs that he brings listeners along on the journey the took him through the wreckage, toward the resurrection and, ultimately to the revolución en su corazón. Join him on this epic adventure!
