Patrick Hagerman Born and raised in Springfield, IL, Patrick Hagerman moved to central Florida in 2003.  He’s been writing and performing songs for over 20 years. His gravelly baritone, unique picking style, and heart piercing lyrics have garnered him fans from all over the world. "Hagerman proved to be an all-around force. Taking most of the guitar leads for the group with conviction, he emerged as a real player. And in the rendition of his personal picks from Jason Isbell, Robert Earl Keen, Wilco and Dylan, "Hagerman showed himself a man of deep, churning soul. But he earned the night’s biggest points when he got legit local with an excellent Terri Binion cover. And bonus for not just covering Lucinda Williams but referring to her as the person “who sings backup vocals for Terri Binion.” -Orlando Weekly Influences: Bob Dylan, John Prine, and Kaleigh Baker, Mark Knopfler, A girl in the window of a train, and Willie Nelson. Gillian Welch, Mahalia Jackson, and Emily Dickinson.

John Holt III St. Pete Born, raised and raising. When John was a child, he wanted to be a musician and a fisherman when he grew up. Now a boat Captain and an accomplished musician, running charters and playing gigs nightly, John is living his childhood dream. A former member of the Hip Abduction had taken John all over the country playing revered stages like Red Rocks, Bluebird Theatre and The Fox Theatre. His band Danfield can be found playing both locally and on festival stages in Florida. His unassuming stage persona is the opposite of what you'd expect when he opens up his mouth to accompany his otherworldly style of guitar playing. Holt's original songs span many genres. Hearing them played solo with just John and an acoustic is one of the more special events in music that Tampa Bay has to offer. Influences: Paul Simon,Willie Nelson,Ray Charles,Blake Mills, Paul McCartney, Marlee Holt, Elliott Smith, and a sea of Red fish.

Blake Daniels "His demos sound like other songwriters’ finished products, but Blake Daniels is truly just getting started. After bouncing around this side of the Rocky Mountains for a few years, the 28-year-old songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from St. Petersburg is ready to share more of himself with listeners." - Creative Loafing Tampa Blake Daniels is a songwriter and musician based out of St. Petersburg Florida. His multi-faceted style of indie rock is reminiscent of Elliott Smith, the Kinks, and Harry Nilsson. With an 11 song LP due this Summer, Daniels and his five-piece band are ready to showcase their unique sound to listeners here and abroad.
