By age ten, James had lived up and down the East Coast, Hawaii, California, and, for a short time, Japan. Being exposed to music from different areas and cultures was an exciting and eye-opening experience for a young boy. James’ middle school years were spent in Havelock, North Carolina where he was introduced to the Bluegrass sound and was given his first opportunities to perform in a professional setting. Kitty West, a local folk singer, took James under her wing and encouraged him to play at various venues and folk festivals from New Bern to Beaufort.



At fourteen, James began his formal musical training with the late, great John Floyd Webb while at Pensacola High School in Florida. Webb began to teach James to read and write music, understand the way chords related to each other and music theory in general. By the end of high school, James was working with the other guitarists at PHS and various musicians around Pensacola. Upon high school graduation James was awarded the MIRA award for excellence in Music and a Presidential Scholorship to attend the University of West Florida Jazz Program.



James stayed in Florida for his college experience to study with great musicians like Dave Shelander, Bob Maksymkow, and Dr. Joseph Spaniola. Daily, James learned a great deal about the theory of music and the style of Jazz, but meanwhile was learning about the business of music and how to entertain crowds at night. The University of West Florida provided James with a great many different outlets for his musical interests and played in many talent shows, festivals, Jazz Band/Combo concerts, and even the occasional concert band show.

Sat, Jan 24, 2015 - Emily Keener Quiet

At 15 years old, Emily Keener is a young girl with an old soul, and her moving music seems to come from a place of beauty and pure emotion.



She plays her dad’s old-six string acoustic guitar with a folksy, nostalgic groove, and she can fill a room with her unique style. Her shows include her original songs and covers on both the guitar and piano, and every song is lovingly filtered through a passionate voice.



A Book of New Beginnings is Emily’s first full-length album, and it has been in the works since February of 2013. Featuring The Womack Family Band, this all original album captures her lovely, youthful style with every word. Filled with new songs and new sounds, the record is beautiful down to the last second.



Emily started playing the guitar when she was 11 years old and began writing songs when she was almost 12. After writing for almost two years, she has over 60 original songs and has released two EPs in addition to her new LP. 


Sat, Jan 31, 2015 - Kennedy Richards Quiet

At the age of sixteen Kennedy Richards, along with her guitar, began her journey into the realm of stale beer, coffee grounds, vinyl records and the soul that tied them all together. Rejecting the shallow, over-processed approach so common in female musicians of her age, Kennedy pushes herself away from the mainstream while pulling her influences from their black-and-white photographs and into modern-times. Following in the footsteps of Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan, Kennedy uses her opportunity as a songwriter to analyze her surroundings and bring to light what is often swept under the rug. Her influences vary from the Greenwich Village folk singers and the Mississippi Delta Blues players to the Detroit garage-rockers and Seattle punks. A listener of Kennedy Richards can expect to hear songs about the romanticism of death, feminism, the emptiness of mainstream radio, individuality, self-accountability and vagabond gypsies. With two years as a musician and two CDs under her belt, Kennedy is looking to make her passion grow into more than herself, hoping to inspire the people of her time the way those she respects and admires did for her.


Sat, Feb 14, 2015 - Steven Mullan Quiet


Steven Mullan has been described as “rhythmic, soulful, and a little torchy (Erie Times News, PA).”  Currently residing in Nashville, TN, his music sounds like the love-child of Maroon 5 and Billy Joel…if that were possible. He recently released a 4-song EP called "Burn." To listen and follow his adventures, visit http://www.stevenmullan.com.


 


Sat, Feb 28, 2015 - The Jack Schilb Trio MediumMedium

I will be joined Saturday night by two accomplished musicians. Don Beyer on bass, and Chuck Mauk on drums, who (I think) are one of the best rhythm sections you're likely to hear. We're working on a CD of original tunes which we'll perform, along with a variety of familiar songs. Looking forward to a fun filled evening, hope to see you all there.


A former member of the bluegrass band the “Diamonds in the Rough,” I’ve been playing music in different genres for many years. Beginning with a rock and roll band during high school days, and moving to acoustic folk rock and an emphasis on songwriting throughout the college years. After a middle age hiatus, the past fifteen years have been busy with several musical endeavers.Am currently playing in an acoustic duo with blues harmonica player Dan “Mudfoot” Hubbs, playing occasionally with a group of fellow songwriters from Bowling Green called the “Long Lost Brothers,” working on a jazz / swing trio with an upright bassist and a trumpet player, and of course playing solo gigs.I enjoy trying to cover those songs that are familiar, but not heard that often. The goal being to hear people say, “That’s a great song, I haven’t heard that forever.” Songwriting, however, will always be my first love. and to that end have been writing many things the past few years.
