Brenna Bavis is a dynamic and original cosmic blues-rock singer/songwriter with one foot rooted in the past and the other stepping into the future. Reviewed live by Brooke Trout of Music Connection Magazine “she poured more than 100% of effort into her performance. She received a standing ovation and deservedly so!” All songs penned by singer Brenna Bavis and prolific guitarist Cary DeNigris are deeply autobiographical and reverberate with the power of their story. After over a decade as songwriting partners and armed with a treasure chest full of songs, Bavis and DeNigris have have created a musical family with love and good food being served at the table. With the birth of Brenna Bavis Band in 2017, they are turning up the volume and their first album will be released in the fall of 2018.

Licity Collins’ debut album ONE GIRL TOWN released April of 2018 is a intimate album—and it rocks. Licity’s raw voice and candid lyrics deliver such determination and love, it is impossible to ignore your own feelings. Licity’s folk-style lyrics draw you close in. Her classic rock bravado remind you of your own courage. Licity combines these traditions into an expansive, vivid, heart-wrenching adventure with a vintage vibe. All offered by a voice that is distinctly human, tenderly embracing, and relentlessly honest. Described by (yes, that’s right…) as “lyrical, intense, intimate and relatable, a diary into Collins’ mind that listeners may see as a mirror into their own lives.” The Ventura County Reporter called her “A unique and engaging voice…emotionally sincere and honest… When you’re an artist as passionate as Collins clearly is, you probably have no choice but to let the world hear everything you have to say.” In addition to her songwriting, Licity writes THE OPEN DIARY, an intimate companion to her music, offered to readers exclusively through Patreon.

With a love for traditional country, Americana, trop-rock, and everything in between, Rod Cordova mixes two parts country, one part pop rock, a pinch of fun, and a twist of lime for good measure. This Simi Valley native fuels his music passion playing in both Bad Habit an ‘80s cover band and Justin Honsinger a country band, but his favorite moments are sitting around a campfire with a glass of wine, an acoustic guitar, singing with family & friends.
Tim played on the Sunset Strip during from the mid 80’s thru the mid 90’s. Tim plays multiple instruments and has been writing and recording since 1982. His main instrument is bass and has played in Steel Wolf, Marcus, Cactus Groove, Dark Chapter, Idelwood, and was guitarist and lead vocalist in his own blues band, Timmy G and the Kenny’s. Tim is the fifth generation of performing artists in his family. Timmy currently plays the part of John McVie in the band Twisted Gypsy.
