Now, Jimbo is focusing on releasing new material that reflects his increasingly acoustic sound. He continues to perform throughout the Bay Area and Northern California as a solo act, with his full band and in collaboration with various other folk artists.  In a world with an increasing need for brave voices, Jimbo hopes to raise his own.

Jane zell - looking for showcase Locked Topic 2 J. Zell My song writing philosophy - connect with the "Muse" by spending time writing and with the guitar. Aided by musical exercises and writing prompts and always prepared to drop what I am doing to answer the call, the inspiration of lyric or line, melody or motif, that comes from beyond conscious constructed thought. As I progress and develop the craft of songwriting I honor with gratitude by prayer and offering, "Be with me my friend, my guide, my song, be with me if you will, and I shall follow as best I can, most gracious Muse of my heart."with deepest regard for the gifts of songwriters to the world, carry on.... - jane

Chicago Songwriter Jeff Brown for last-minute showcase availabilies Locked Topic 0 J. Brown Phone:773.507.4718 Email: Category of Folk: Indie Folk, Singer/Songwriter Location: Chicago, IL   Chicago singer-songwriter Jeff Brown grew up with his ears fixed on the musical intricacies of Iron Maiden records, but over the years has chosen to explore a softer side of music. These days, he creates songs rooted in the gentle musings of contemplative trailblazers like Carole King and James Taylor with modern touches similar to Damien Rice and Iron & Wine.  He cites his musical influences as, "Girls and alcohol, mostly," and uses passion, a sense of humor, and a comforting stage presence to bring to life love songs for people that are sick of the same old love songs.  He tours regionally, nationally, and internationally, having just returned from a month-long tour of Iceland, England, Ireland, and Scotland. I would love to be a part of your showcase!

The Newkirks Locked Topic 0 S. Newkirk The Newkirks Contact Info: Phone: 913-579-1319 Email: Category of Folk: Americana/Country Location: Kansas City, MO Website: About Us: We're The Newkirks, a husband-and-wife singer-songwriter duo based out of Kansas City. Both hailing from smaller Kansas towns, we have drawn from our familiarity of both small-town and big-city life to help shape genuine lyrics that speak of the heartbreak, love, struggles and triumphs experienced in our own lives, creating a unique sound that leans toward classic country. "The Newkirks - Live at the Loft" is our debut album, which captures our unique harmonies and country-folk sound. The 10-song, original album was recorded live and acoustic in early 2016, and gives a taste of what our live performances can bring. This will be our first Folk Alliance Conference that we attend as a duo, and we'd love to share our music with you and your guests at your private showcase! View our website to stream our music, as well as view an additional video. We look forward to seeing you at Folk Alliance!

Lion Bear Fox Locked Topic 0 Mission Management Group / Lion Bear Fox LION BEAR FOX    Phone: 250-245-4440 Email: Category of Folk: Alt-Folk/Americana Location: Vancouver Island, British Columbia Website: Biography: Vancouver’s Lion Bear Fox is three huge voices joined as one, telling the truth through compelling story, honest narrativeand unbridled passion.  Three men going to war onstage every night to share a message of hope, vulnerability and redemption.  Lion Bear Fox is “a musical force of nature”, an “emotional awakening” that’s sure to “be around for a lifetime”. (Nanaimo Daily News/Songs in the Valley/Terry David Mulligan).   Originally known for their respective solo careers, Christopher Arruda, Ryan McMahon and Cory Woodward joined forces as Lion Bear Fox in 2012 and was immediately selected as one of the top 20 unsigned bands British Columbia (Peak Performance Project).  The fall of 2013 saw the band release their self-produced breakthrough EP “We’d Be Good Men” and take Western Canada by storm, touring 15 times over the next two years including stops at Canadian Music Week (Toronto), Contact East (PEI), OSAC (Regina) Mission Folk Festival and The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC. They have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists like Tom Wilson, Good For Grapes, Elliot Brood and Kim Mitchell.   2016 sees Lion Bear Fox further cementing themselves as the new Canadian band to watch.  With the help of friend and producer Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run), the trio spent ten days in the Vancouver Island wilderness crafting “the record of their lives” -  a collection of songs steeped in character and full of warmth.  One part folk, one part rock - a pinch ofgospel and a dash of growl, the self-titled LP is a testament to the trio’s strength as songwriters.  Lush acoustic guitars are bookended by buzzing electrics and screaming organs;  all tied together by rich percussion and three voices in mighty harmony.  It’s a sound that harkens back to an era when the song was paramount. “All three artists are known for the passion they bring to their performances and the honest songs they write,” writes the Ladysmith Chronicle, “and they have succeeded in creating gripping, dynamic songs while capturing a sincerity rarely heard this side of the 2000’s”.  Lion Bear Fox will be appearing at festivals across Canada this summer, for a list of tour dates and information on LP release, follow along here at

Led by wife & husband Kim Roe (Best Female Vocalist, City Pages) and Quillan Roe, the band marries old-time sounds from barn-dances, fiddle pulls, and county fairs with the rock & roll passion of youth.   Featuring banjo, Autoharp, guitar, and Appalachian clogging, they've shared the stage with Doc Watson, Ralph Stanley, Mike Seeger, Del McCoury, the Grascals, and Jim Kweskin & Geoff Muldaur. In 2011 the band was awarded the prestigious McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians; they won the title of “World's Best Jug Band” twice, in 2010 & 2012 at the annual Battle of the Jug Bands; in 2012, won the Minnesota Duet Contest at the MN State Fair; and in 2016 won the title of Entertainers of the Year from BMAI.     The Roe Family Singers mix original music and contemporary takes on old-time, traditional, and gospel tunes into one roiling & rollicking river of fresh yet familiar American music. Every performance raises a ruckus. Here are more links to some of our songs.
