Jeff Silver: When you listen to Jeff, you hear a swampy blues rocker one minute and a haunting ballad with soaring melodies the next. He's developed a unique guitar style that surprises you with unexpected grooves and chords that perfectly compliment his personal and powerful lyrics. Silver's is a "grown up" voice that's been influenced by everyone from The Beatles and James Taylor to Sting and Steely Dan, but he cooks up a satisfying stew that definitely has a flavor all its own. http://www.reverbnation.com/jeffsilver
Danica Alexander is a sultry and sweet jazz singer who enjoys taking old classics and standards that have been thrown by the wayside and giving them a modern Jazz flare. Her main vocal influences would have to be the greats, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, and Linda Ronstadt along with contemporary artists such as Amy Winehouse and Nora Jones. She is a passionate singer who was born fifty years too late. She is planning to move to Italy for the next two years to study vocal performance and history. She would love to open her own cafe and music venue in Italy some day and spend some time traveling around Europe in Jazz bands.
