Tony Lucca is an innately gifted singer/songwriter with a resume any musician would find gratifying. He’s written and self- produced five studio albums, three EPs, several live recordings and a popular DVD. He’s won the L.A. Music Award for Best Male Singer/Songwriter. He’s performed with notable artists including pop icons NSYNC, Marc Anthony and Joss Stone, as well as indie favorites Josh Kelley, Jason Mraz and Bob Schneider. He’s galvanized an international following and has sold out premier venues coast-to-coast, including Joe’s Pub in New York and the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles.
Jay Nash, Californian native and rock troubadour, has been blessed with the kind of excruciatingly rustic voice so rarely heard on record. Coupled with that is his unnervingly candid approach to songwriting – the man is a burgeoning talent. It’s certainly refreshing to find an artist that refuses to simply dwell on the hard times, instead choosing to bask in the good and the great that life has to offer. At times almost jovial, Nash’s charisma and buoyant attitude is infectious to the last with a sound capable of softening the sternest of hearts.
Matt Duke is a Philly-based singer-songwriter signed to Ryko who fuses pop, folk, jazz and rock into his repertoire. At only 24 years old, the gravity of Duke’s lyrical content suggests an old soul. Often compared to Conor Oberst and Jason Mraz, Duke is eager to touch souls around the globe with his organic worldly sound.
Roy Jay’s music is an amalgam of his influences; a touch of Dylan, a dash of Paul Simon, a heaping of Jimmy Buffet and infused with the wide-open, American spirit of the Grateful Dead. And it is the reflection of a man who has journeyed to be where he wanted to be all along.
