London, 1970s. An opera singer/bellydancer/musicologist young woman meets a classical conductor/composer young man and make a baby who couldn't escape music if she tried. Born in London and raised in Holland and New York, Lucy Woodward escaped...right into music. Singing jazz for tip jars and meals on Bleecker street, waitressing, cover banding, jingling, waitressing, songwriting, background vocalizing and waitressing were all a part of the journey. And her parents were fully behind the sitch. In a nutshell, this happened... Woodward's Atlantic Records 2003 debut album allowed her to tour internationally and garner significant press exposure, including a spot on Jay Leno's The Tonight Show. An award-winning songwriter, Lucy has written and recorded songs for several film soundtracks including the Golden Globe-winning The Blind Side, What a Girl Wants, Last Vegas, and her favorite, Ice Princess, with her rendition of Bjork/Betty Hutton big band cover, "It's Oh So Quiet."

Charles Bradley has made a name for himself as a riveting live performer and was named to the top spot on Paste Magazine’s Best Live Acts of 2015. He has taken his show to venues and festivals across the globe including Coachella, Glastonbury Festival, and Primavera Sound. The Brooklyn-based 67-year old released his third album Changes on April 1 via Daptone Records, which Rolling Stone calls one of the “Most Anticipated Albums of 2016.” The remarkable against-all-odds rise of Charles Bradley since the release of his 2011 debut album No Time For Dreaming has been well documented. He transcended a bleak life on the streets and struggled through a series of ill-fitting jobs before finally being discovered by Daptone's Gabriel Roth. The year following the release of No Time For Dreaming was one triumph after another including a breakthrough performance at SXSW, several television performances and having the album named to many year-end “best of” lists. The soul singer’s ascent continued with the 2013 release of his triumphant second album Victim of Love, which saw Bradley emerging from his past heartaches stronger and more confident, overflowing with love to share.

Tell the Wolves is a genre-bending rock act out of Sacramento. The band aims to create groundbreaking music that keeps the heart of rock and roll alive. They formed in 2013 when Ryan Griffith (guitar) and Ian Moch (Drums) met with Leryan Burrey (vocals/guitar). After writing some material, they met Zack Davis (bass) and started gigging in the Sacramento area, gaining a small following. In August of 2014, they added Arianna Kinsella (Vocals/Keys) to add a larger, atmospheric quality to their sound. Since then, they've played in the Sacramento and Bay Area. They quickly gained momentum, supporting national acts during Sacramento's 2015 Concert in the Park series to over 5500 concert goers. Also performance: -Sages -Ghost Parade [less-]

Tell the Wolves is a genre-bending rock act out of Sacramento. The band aims to create groundbreaking music that keeps the heart of rock and roll alive. They formed in 2013 when Ryan Griffith (guitar) and Ian Moch (Drums) met with Leryan Burrey (vocals/guitar). After writing some material, they met Zack Davis (bass) and started gigging in the Sacramento area, gaining a small following. In August of 2014, they added Arianna Kinsella (Vocals/Keys) to add a larger, atmospheric quality to their sound. Since then, they've played in the Sacramento and Bay Area. They quickly gained momentum, supporting national acts during Sacramento's 2015 Concert in the Park series to over 5500 concert goers. Also performance: -Sages -Ghost Parade [less-]
