The Brook & the Bluff
The Brook & the Bluff
Established in Birmingham, AL, The Brook & The Bluff is a four-man band that consists of frontman Joseph Settine, drummer John Canada, guitarist Alec Bolton and bassist Fred Lankford.

The guys have quickly become recognized for their evocative blend of instrumental talent and vocal harmony. These elements are readily apparent in the band's debut track, “Masks.” Having initially gained momentum via Spotify, the song has helped spur the band forward in their musical pursuits.

The group's first year as a full band has been widely successful. From charting on Spotify's US and Canada Viral 50 Playlists, performing at the NAMM shows in both Nashville and Anaheim, and selling out shows in Atlanta, Birmingham, Huntsville, Nashville and Opelika, the band has had an exhilarating first year.

Originally an acoustic duo, Alec and Joseph started turning heads in local venues with clean vocals and expert guitar work. John noticed the talent and potential of the duo and offered to play drums and sing with the guys. Soon after, he officially joined the group, expanding their sound with driving rhythm and an added voice. The trio instantly locked in and have been playing together ever since. With their new bassist Fred Lankford, The Brook and The Bluff relocated to Nashville in 2018.
Waking April
Waking April
Joy, Bethany and Alex all met as children in a theater company and stayed in touch over the years but never would have imagined how deep their friendships would eventually become. All three band members were taught piano by Alex’s parents, all three went to the same university and all three shared the same views on politics and cats, yet it was over a decade after meeting until they started making music together. Bethany and Alex started playing together as a duo in 2015. Joy was in between bands at the time and started singing occasionally with them. Bethany and Alex quickly realized how natural it felt with Joy in the mix and started sharing the stage with her more and more until all three agreed that making music as a trio was the only option that made any sense anymore.

Now the three are all but inseparable (Bethany and Alex are set to be married in the Fall of 2017 and Joy is the maid of honor) and the music coming out of the trio is more complex, ambitious and focused than ever. Their second EP “Bones” releasing Summer 2017 is a launching pad into their 2nd US Tour and beyond.
Tahoma (Brandon Aguilar Solo) - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Tahoma (Brandon Aguilar Solo)
Tahoma crosses over the thresholds of lucid, harmony-based folk, and classic, compelling Americana Rock. Emblematic of artists like Ryan Adams, My Morning Jacket, and Tom Petty,Tahoma boasts a flawless blend of indie-rock, Americana-soul, and classic rock n’ roll.The Austin, TX group’s newest single “Emerald Ring” perfectly emulates the band’s transformation from wine-sipping romantic folk to definitively, classic American rock music. The first single from the group’s upcoming record (set to be released in June 2016), “Emerald Ring” is an expression of lead singer, Brandon Aguilar, “coming to terms with what kind of songwriter I think I am”. Superbly written lyrics, detailing the painfully natural process of human growth, coupled with tasteful, melodically crafted guitar riffs places Tahoma into their own distinct realm of hybrid Americana Rock. Joining Aguilar is Sarah Oermann on backing vocals/percussion, Vinnie Fallico on lead guitar, Mark Mayfield on bass, and Clellan Hyatt on drums. Oermann’s soulfully chilling harmonies coupled with Fallico’s electrifying, gritty guitar licks makes for an eye-turning, energetic sound reminiscent of 70’s LA country rock legends Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, and The Eagles.While the group still maintains a fingerprint of their older, folk roots from their debut Honest Mark EP, Tahoma has re-crafted their sound with a live, full band in mind. When asked of the group’s progression, Aguilar noted “it’s always been easier for me to write a rock song... that’s more me at the very core.” With a full length album set for a August 2016 release, Tahoma is geared up, and ready to showcase their distinctly unique brand of Americana Rock to audiences everywhere.
