Laith Al-Saadi Martha Redbone is one of the most vital voices in American Roots music. A multi award-winning musician, the charismatic songstress is celebrated for her tasty gumbo of roots music embodying the folk and country sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky mixed with the eclectic grit of her teenage years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn. With her gospel singing father’s voice and the spirit of her Cherokee/Choctaw mother’s culture, Redbone broadens the boundaries of Americana. Her break-out CD with Martha Redbone Roots Project, The Garden of Love – Songs of William Blake, was produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder/Grammy Winner John McEuen. “A brilliant collision of cultures,” lauded the New Yorker of Martha’s magnificent voice, Blake’s immortal words and a masterful cornucopia of roots music… folk, country, Piedmont blues, gospel, bluegrass, soul, and traditional American Indian.

Redbone and her long term collaborator, pianist Aaron Whitby are called “the little engine that could” by their “band of NYC’s finest blues and jazz musicians” (Larry Blumenthal). From a humble beginning with residencies at the original Living Room on the Lower East side and at Joe’s Pub and nationally at powwows across Indian Country in support of her debut album, Home of the Brave (“Stunning album, the kind of woman who sets trends” Billboard), Redbone has built a passionate fan base with her mesmerizing presence and explosive live shows. Her album Skintalk is described as the soulful sound of “Earth, Wind and Fire on the Rez” (Native Peoples Magazine) and is recognized as an example of Contemporary Native American music in the Permanent Library Collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. She was named a 2015/16 Fellow of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation.

Currently Redbone is developing BONE HILL, a musical theaterpiece, based on the stories of her Appalachian mining family’s heritage and history. In the piece Redbone travels back in time to her own childhood and beyond into the memories and tales of her Cherokee ancestors revealing an untold American story fueled a wide range of American music. Commissioned by Joe’s Pub/The Public Theater arts’ initiative, New York Voices, and a recipient of the New England Foundation for the Arts/National Performance Network.

2016, Laith Al-Saadi won America’s hearts and a spot in the finale of NBC’s The Voice. Now he’s poised to bring his authentic blend of blues, soul and classic rock to audiences around the nation and the world.

Laith Al-Saadi has always had the perfect combination of Midwestern hustle and incredible musical chops – honed at the University of Michigan school of music in his hometown of Ann Arbor, and on stages across the country working with legends like Taj Mahal, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Son Seals, Gregg Allman and B.B. King.

“Laith is one of the most diverse talents we have,” said Maroon 5 frontman and ‘The Voice’ coach Adam Levine. “Incredible guitar player, incredible singer.”

Entertainment Weekly called Laith Al-Saadi “a power performer who is so legitimate and memorable.”

Audiences have agreed, propelling Al-Saadi’s most recent release, REAL, to the top of the blues chart for five weeks and the top 20 album chart for two weeks. Laith also had four singles in the top ten iTunes singles charts, and his albums In The Round and Long Time Coming spent time at the top of the rock and album charts.

Guitar World Magazine has called Laith Al-Saadi a cross between “Danny Gatton and Buddy Guy at their best,” and Guitar Center crowned him one of the top four blues guitarists in the United States.

2017 marks the 24th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival onto the

music scene. Since it’s formation in the early nineties in Ventura, California, the band has

toured virtually nonstop, performing on average over 150 shows a year, and has produced a

sizable catalog of recorded music, with sales of over 2 million albums to date. Early on,

during their legendary residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles, they reminded the

world, in the midst of the grunge era no less, that it was still cool to swing. The band, cofounded

by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the

swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz,

swing, and dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and

guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley

(baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen “The Kid” Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter

(saxophones and clarinet) and Joshua Levy (piano and arranger).

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s efforts to promote and revitalize swing music have taken shape as

much more than a simple tribute. Taking inspiration from the creators of this uniquely

American art form, the band’s original horn-infused music and legendary high energy show

introduces the genre to a new and younger generation while remaining cognizant and

respectful of the music’s rich legacy.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s first phase of stardom featured an appearance in the 1996 indie

film

 

Swingers, a movie that not only launched the careers of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau,

but introduced Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to an audience beyond their Los Angeles base. The

band’s music has appeared in countless films and television shows, including

 

The Wild,

Despicable Me, Phineas & Ferb, Friends, Third Rock From The Sun, Ally McBeal, and So You

Think You Can Dance.

 

 

They have appeared live on Dancing With The Stars, Late Night With

Conan O’Brien, NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center, The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day

Parade,

 

 

a remarkable seven appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and the

Super Bowl XXXIII Halftime Show

 

 

. The band has also appeared as special guests with many

of the country’s most distinguished symphony orchestras, and has performed for three U.S.

Presidents.

After 24 years, 10 records, over 2800 live shows, and countless appearances in film and

television, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is showing no signs of slowing down, and is looking

forward to celebrating it’s 25th anniversary in 2018.

Crystal Bowersox, a northwest Ohio native currently calling Nashville home, has built her life around music.  Crystal’s love for music developed at an early age from a need to find peace in a chaotic world. Through art and creation, Crystal was able to direct her energy and emotion, finding a way to mend a mind in turmoil.  For her, music was always the most effective form of catharsis, and she would play for anyone, anywhere. In her own words, “my guitar was an appendage. I couldn’t live without it.”

Dead set on a career in music, Crystal moved to Chicago as a teenager, where she spent her days performing underground on subway platforms in between working odd jobs. While in the big city, she broadened her musical horizons and shared her talents with a variety of venues, ultimately auditioning for the ninth season of American Idol. Crystal’s time on the show proved to be well spent, as she immediately left the the soundstage for the recording studio. Since her introduction to the world through television, Crystal has released two LP’s, two EPs,  and several singles. Additionally, she has used her talents to benefit several causes close to her heart, and has become an advocate and inspiration for people living with Type 1 Diabetes.

However, it is what’s in front of her, not what’s behind her, that will define Crystal’s personal and professional evolution. The accomplished singer-songwriter is set to release a new project – a live album, recorded at the Kitchen Sink Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, cleverly titled Alive. Not only is the title a play on words, representing the rawness of the tracks, but it pertains to the place where Crystal currently is in her life.  That place is one of joy, fulfillment, and stability for Crystal and her eight year old son, Tony.

To create her newest project, Crystal called on her “chosen family” of musicians. The combination of keeping those she cherishes close to her and taking an honest look at life has resulted in the truest music she has released to date. Crystal has drawn on her various influences —  across folk-pop, classic rock, soul, blues and country — to make the kind of music that resonates with her spirit. It is both tender and tough, rough yet polished, and it encompasses many genres without falling neatly into one category. As one of her songwriting partners describes it, Crystal has “a voice like dirt and diamonds.” Her music is intended to bring a positive message of love and light to the world – things that folks will be able to take with them on their own journey, so that they, too, can feel truly alive.

Similar to her beginnings, Crystal intends to make music that has healing power, but at this point, she sees far beyond her own troubles. Her live show is a safe space for concertgoers. Attend a Crystal Bowersox show, and you just might see a grown man cry and a child dance simultaneously. You’ll also likely get the chance to meet her personally; Crystal is typically the first one to arrive and the last one to leave the venue. Meeting with the fans and hearing their personal stories is something Crystal considers a blessing in her life.

By reliving her own painful moments in song, Crystal hopes to transcend that pain, lifting herself and her audience to a higher place. In the opening lines of “A Broken Wing” she sings, “I know there’s beauty in the burden / And even on my darkest day that sun will shine.” Crystal’s story is one of resilience and perseverance, and it’s evident in every note of her newest release, Alive.
