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
JARED & THE MILL
Jared & The Mill is an Indie/Folk outfit from Phoenix, AZ who is humbly making themselves a household name in the industry. The band, thanks to their talented songwriting skills, feature an eclectic mix of Indie Rock, Folk, and Americana, with subtle doses of Jazz and the Blues. 2014 has been an incredible year for Jared & The Mill. With constant touring, both headlining and supporting the likes of Zac Brown Band, John Butler Trio, Barry
Gibb, Boy & Bear, Della Mae, The Black Lillies and many others, this band has even further refined the their live show.

The band has had some incredible experiences this year, perhaps the most significant being the excitement and joy of turning an unfortunate SXSW tragedy into a cheerful experience with a close fan of the band in her hospital setting. Proud and excited with the success they have obtained so far in 2014 the band is even more hungry to continue the trek which will not only take them into major Canadian markets and else where but to cities throughout the US.

By being continually on the move, the band has the opportunity to explore and grow their sound as a creative force. Performing new material in their show’s, is adding to the terrific energy of an ever-growing fan base that has mobilized them into producing an EP of new material to be released in early 2015.
