SHAWN JAMES AND THE SHAPESHIFTERS - July 26th & 27th

We are so excited and honored to have Shawn James back with his full 4 man band from Fayetteville, AK on July 26 & 27 for a two night gig at Montanya from 6-9 pm.  If you make room for only one thing on your July calendar, let it be this.  He reminds me of Greg Brown or Tom Waites yet with a much bigger sound.  These guys simply ooze talent and we will one day say we knew them when...before it all went big.  Check out www.shawnjamesmusic.com to watch videos and learn more.   

MARK BERENSON - July 13

Erin and the Project

Featuring the dyadic cyclone that is Erin Ezekiel (vocals/keys), and Paul Ezekiel (drums/percussion), Erin & The Project creates a hypnotic sound. A blend of soul, blues, jazz, r&b, and rock genres forming a category referred to as “soul-ternative”.

He has appeared in concert with such artists as Gov't Mule, John Cowan, Shawn Colvin, Richie Furay, Robert Earl Keen, Guy Clark, New Grass Revival, and Delbert McClinton.  "I've wandered a bit. My old guitar has been my constant companion and confidante for as long as I can remember. Old ghosts live inside her wooden shell and when the night is right she sings to me and whispers great tales of love and loss - of heroes and friends. Like a warm breeze I will roll your way from time to time with a new story from an old confidante. This train has no destination , it's just meant to roll.
 
March 1st:  ERIN AND THE PROJECT (Alternative) 
Description: Featuring the dyadic cyclone that is Erin Ezekiel (vocals/keys) and Paul Ezekiel (drums/percussion), Erin & The Project creates a hypnotic indie/soul-ternative sound, fulfilling a genre all its own, with their sound being described as refreshing, inspiring, and soulful by listeners worldwide. They compile lyrics that dive into positive consciousness and mysticism, while integrating soulful vocals, melodic piano, and strong rhythms throughout.  After great success with the release of their debut, self-titled album, they caught the attention of world renowned engineer/mixer, Oz Fritz (Grammy Award winner: Tom Waits “Mule Variations”), who produced their most recent album release, "Birthday".

Description:  Born in 1986 in the south side of Chicago, Shawn James had a hardworking, kind mother and a gambling, abusive, drunk father. He grew up singing in church and was drawn to the emotional and ethereal power that music has over people. It was there that he found his escape and learned how to harness his unique, soulful voice.  Shawn now lives in Fayetteville, Arkansas playing a raw, haunting mix of Blues, Folk, and Soul music and is on tour from Fayetteville, Arkansas promoting his new album The Wolf.
