|Sat, Sep 10, 2016 - Keith Sansalone |
Jeremy grew up in the small town of Sebring in Northeastern Ohio. The first instrument he learned to play was the piano starting at the age of 8. After moving to Findlay, he started playing acoustic guitar and soon after got involved playing piano in the contemporary band at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in town. He has since moved on to playing mostly electric guitar and some occasional piano on Sunday mornings in the contemporary band.
He has been coming down to Coffee Amici for over 10 years with Keith for open mic nights. His musical interests include a wide range of genres from classic rock of the 70’s to country to contemporary Christian, with his all-time favorite artist being Dave Matthews.

PEOPLE SAY THIS ABOUT NATHANIEL SEER
Cheery music fans beware! This Bloomington, Indiana native's second album of Americana/folk narrative songs is memorable and unique, but decidely from a darker perspective. Seer moves stealthily from silky smooth like Jeff Buckley or John Cale (the darkly poetic “Karaoke,” for example) to more whiskey-soaked and dangerous ala Mark Lanegan (the rollicking Western-style murder ballad “John Brown's Hatchet”). Yet despite these comparisons, Seer's sound is purely his own. This combination of elements works well, and casts Seer as a serious contender for label interest, in my honest opinion. Songs Of Hate invokes a great American artistic spirit, and one that never grows old or tired. Superlative and worthy work, and easily recommended.

I've been singing and playing for over 20 years. Started in High School. Playing in small bands and then moving into playing in a working rock band, Myriah. We played throughout Northwest Ohio. Moved onto playing in a . Then as a recording artist for 5th Dimension records, with my one man outfit Dementia 13. It was a clash of styles, incorporating and musical genres like metal, industrial, minimalist electronica, and noise. I dubbed the style Art Noise Terrorism, or Anti-rock, or Neo-Tokyo Jazz, depending on the situation. After a brief stint in numerous other projects, I finally decided that solo performance was the way to go. I have been playing solo acoustic rock for about 10 years now. I also still record music. Have been listed in the linux journal as a performance artist and in numerous music rags for my recorded music and . In 2003 I composed the original electronic music for the Fort Findlay Playhouse production of Ken Kesey's 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'. Hailed, for it's bizzare and cutting take on insanity, by the former President of the Gem Theatre in .

|Sat, Oct 15, 2016 - Greg Mahan |
Mahan’s bread-and-butter is elegant, graceful and often poetic Americana music, with songs built around his sturdy acoustic playing nd imagery-laden lyrics. On Daydream, there are some of Mahan’s best ever songs in that style (the minimal title track and the slow-burner, “Fireflies”), but the rest of the album shows that he is not limited to any one specific “genre” when writing. Calypso rhythms imbue “Mento” with a sassy strut, sounding like a weird mesh of Graceland-era Paul Simon and neo-Eastern European revivalists like DeVotchKa, while “Wink ’n’ a Smile” closes the album on a playful, sunny Pop note. Producer Brian Lovely helps achieve a crisp sound that allows the songs to breath and the musicians that flesh out the arrangements (with everything from strings to drums) perform flawlessly. Thirty-Five-Cent Daydream sounds as good as any “Roots” album you’ll hear this year, local or otherwise. Here’s a prediction for ya — local NPR affiliate WNKU is going to play the shit out of this one. Other programmers would be smart to follow suit. -Mike Breen, Cincinnati CityBeat

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.

|Sat, Dec 3, 2016 - Mike Vial |
On his previous albums of folk-rock, Mike Vial sings about searching for true love, taking chances, and facing life’s transitions. These themes mirror the songwriter’s ambitious journeys over the years: He left his teaching position to pursue music full time, married writer Natalie Burg, celebrated the birth of their first baby (a girl!), and started a songwriting challenge to write a song a week in 2014. Mike performs 150+ gigs a year. His vocal style is comparable to James Taylor and Ari Hest, but his guitar playing stands out with its own voice, mixing elements of jazz, folk, and rock. He has been showcase performer for Folk Alliance, The LCC Radio M897 Spotlight Artist in 2015, and winner of the Ypsi Songwriting Festival in 2010 and Lansing’s Blue Owl Songwriting Award in 2014.
