Stephen Yerkey is one of the greatest little-known songwriters and singers west of the Mississippi. He can moan a gritty blues and growl hard-bitten country from a place deep inside his gut, or whisper the warmth of hope. When Yerkey conjures up visions of cowboys, drunks, and other desperate dreamers, his voice curls and ripples around the words, which jump in all directions but ultimately give in to Yerkey's control, easing to the ground and laying flat out. Think early Tom Waits meets Hank Williams Jr and Tom T. Hall.
Acoustic guitarist Dale Miller started playing guitar during the ?folk boom? of the late 1950s. After hearing John Fahey in the mid 1960s, he began to specialize in solo steel string guitar playing.Many professional artists cite him as a major influence.
Jack Stuber is a Berkeley based blues player whose songs are gathered from the likes of Ian Anderson, Greg Brown and Richard Thompson to that of his own originals. He sings the sounds of lonely love, painful death and big city streets not to mention other tunes of joy and hope.
