Gork is an indie pop singer-songwriter with his roots in the phoenix music scene. He tells heart-wrenching stories with infectious melodies. He has a prolific catalog of over 100 songs.
As a solo artist, Blaine Long hit a wall. He had just released his 9th album for Bright Angel Records which led to an audition for season 11 of “The Voice”. With a three chair turn, his audition song went all the way to the number 2 spot on the iTunes rock chart. After returning home to Arizona, Blaine recorded his 10th record, “Scorpio” released in late 2017.
Award-winning songwriter Eric Ramsey is, among other things, a two-time champion of the Phoenix Blues Society’s Blues Showdown, a two-time featured artist at the Dripping Springs (TX) Songwriter Festival, Finalist of the Telluride (CO) Blues Challenge He has performed at International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Eric is a past winner of the Stefan George Memorial (Tucson Folk Festival) Songwriting Competition, and has been tapped for the prestigious Songwriter’s Showcase produced by Tempe Center for the Arts, filmed for PBS distribution.
Eric is a favorite on the Folk and Blues Festival circuits, not only for his dynamic performances but for his open tuning and slide guitar workshops. With soaring vocals and organic arrangements, Eric writes from experience about the human condition – at times sensitive, at times humorous, always thought-provoking. His arrangements and delivery encompass a spectrum of styles, from delicate fingerpicking to raucous, bluesy bottleneck slide.
