DECKER
DECKER
Over the last two years, Decker has played over 250 shows, touring relentlessly from Sedona, AZ to Seattle, WA to Shreveport, LA and everywhere in between. Not confining his shows to music clubs alone, Decker is known to play free shows in cafes, farmer's markets and on street corners alike. In the midst of traveling 50,000+ in his Dodge Caravan, he has self-released three albums on his own local record label, Mescal Porch Records, and, in June, delivered his first-born son in his kitchen to boot. It's safe to say, Decker is amongst the hardest-working touring songwriters you've never heard of.

But he's doing his best to change that.

On October 7 Decker released Broken Belts, Broken Bones, a 7-track EP, written largely in the midst of a 99-show tour in support of last October's Long as the Night. Upon returning from the epic 6-month tour for the birth of his son, Decker and Sedona engineer/drummer Ed Barattini (Richie Havens, Stanley Jordan) recorded the new album in ten days with a host of Arizona musicians. Decker will subsequently embark on a series of tours beginning in November.

Decker crafts songs which find profundity in their naked sincerity. Not quite rock, not quite folk, his acoustic-based psychedelic Americana balladry draws upon a variety of influences; from Leonard Cohen to Tom Waits, from Cat Power to PJ Harvey. Yet in the end, his music is unique and uniquely him, and that is his offering.
Jared & The Mill (closing set)
Jared & The Mill is an Indie/Folk outfit from Phoenix, AZ who is humbly making themselves a household name in the industry. They will be setting out on a 30 day tour through the Western U.S supporting the release of their debut album Western Expansion on September 17th, 2013. With support of mtvU, radio and PR this band will be sure to make a mark with this album. Having shared the stage already with national acts like Flogging Molly, Cake, The Killers, Y La Bamba, Joe Pug and Horse Feathers, these 6 guys are ready to take this act internationally and make a name for themselves in the industry.

"Naturally you'll encounter busking at SXSW. Most of it is forgettable, but the exception is Jared & the Mill, a band that drove in from Phoenix and performed Tuesday. Whenever somebody's playing a washboard on a street corner, it's hard not to notice. Their infectious playing and underdog story helped pull in dozens of passersby, including me."
