Bar Jay Bar

After leaving New England and spending years on the road living out of cars, chasing fiddle festivals, and writing music across the country, he linked up with a rag-tag collective of street buskers in Los Angeles, CA and adopted his Great-Grandfather’s cattle brand as a name–Bar Jay Bar. With a sound honed in front of square dances and sidewalk passersby alike, Bar Jay Bar’s music is born from a love of harmony rich Old-Time country, and features thoughtful originals and reinterpreted classics played on guitar, fiddle, and upright bass. He resides in El Sereno, CA.

Zaynab Wilson

“What a gorgeous voice and stunning performer, Zaynab’s sense of humour and wit engages the listener in such an honest way. Her gentleness and humility in her songs quietens your spirit. When I heard her songs and voice it reminded me of a young Aretha Franklin. Truly amazing performer and as Zaynab has been supporting others on their musical journey, the time is now for this young performer with a huge career ahead of her.” – Shellie Morris, Indigenous Australian singer-songwriter

Zaynab, a Canadian-Trinidadian multi-instrumentalist, is slow and steady with her creative and personal expansion. She explores the details and depths of her story through her dynamic music style and passionate expression, and transmutes the raw material of her experiences and voice into songs that “quietens your spirit”. With a diverse musical input ranging from Bob Marley to Norah Jones, Esperanza Spalding and Billie Holiday, Zaynab’s output flows with elements of improvisation influenced by Jazz, Soul, R&B and Afro-Caribbean.

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.
