Projects and Collaborators
Disco Bebop Rave Gospel Townie Rock.
The modern manifestation of this band began in February 2006.
Josefina Baez is a performer, writer and theater director based in New York City, originally from La Romana, Dominican Republic.
I've arranged, performed and recorded with Chris since we first met in Ann Arbor in 2002. He is a creative songwriter with charismatic stage presence.
Chris' debut album "Beautiful" was released in 2012. A community organizer, athlete, farmer, songwriter, and independent media representative, his message encourages listeners to buy local, eat more veggies, and love everyone.
Currently working in the studio with a ferocious horn section to bring to life James' prog-jazz influenced compositions.
E. Minor's debut album "Dust out of Sand," arrived spring 2013 and is in rotation on her hometown station 90.7 WNMC FM, Traverse City.
Rock, rhythm & blues, and country music inform John's eloquent songwriting. I've been in John's horn section for about two years. We're preparing for some exciting 2014 summer tour dates.
The Tone Farmers
This power duo with bassist Brennan Andes formed in 2001, busking the streets of Ann Arbor. The band played a long run of private engagements before making an official public debut, and we now regularly appear at local venues with a cast of talented supporting musicians.
