Shelly Brown

Shelly is a singer, songwriter, vocal coach and more, hailing from the bayous of the Northern Rivers in New South Wales, Australia. She was brought up jamming, fed on it from the womb- singing is her natural state of ease. She loves drinking coffee, then teaching people about singing, about harmony, about the musical release in letting go; fuelled by soul music, jazz improv and a folky calm.

The covid universe has redefined music for our culture, and so, musicians are finding new ways to create and be their prolific selves. Shelly created a songwriting circle, to build community and encourage inspiration; she creates a singing lesson podcast welcoming you to partake in your own personal singing lesson and jamming inspired music theory. Shelly loves to serenade at weddings, teach vocal groups, and was sinking her head and heart into teaching choirs as covid hit.

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.

Anderson William

Anderson William was born in Washington DC and raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountain range in Virginia. His first song, a time-tested hit among his family, was written at 8 years old about his love for cashew nuts.

After a seven year stint in NYC where he wrote other songs – not about cashew nuts, he moved to Los Angeles. There, he found his voice and a real passion for storytelling through song whilst drinking whiskey, eventually forming the blues based Americana duo, High Noon Whiskey, with Diego Garcia (Stage 11).

Anderson currently lives in Austin, TX with his lovely wife, Amanda, and their two sweet doggies, Buckley & Arletta.

When not writing/performing music, Anderson spends his time as a woodworker, photographer, actor, writer, and director.
