Eric McFadden Trio (EMT)

A veteran of celebrated underground bands including Liar, the Eric McFadden Experience, Alien Lovestock and IZM, Eric McFadden’s sinister songs, vampiric vocals and flamenco-rock guitar improvisations have made him an icon along America’s western seaboard. Lest you dismiss the preceding as absurd hyperbole, consider the fact that McFadden has performed and recorded with the lordly likes of Bo Diddley, the late Joe Strummer, and Widespread Panic.

Eric McFadden Trio, Hog Wallow, Utah, Cottonwood Heights, Rock, Music, BandEric McFadden was destined to be different. His mother sang in an early incarnation of the Fugs, the Ed Saunders-led New York ensemble that was arguably the first underground rock band. Bob Dylan slept on the McFadden couch while Eric was still in the womb, and counter culture poet (and neighbor) Allen Ginsberg successfully protested when the family was faced with eviction from their Greenwich Village apartment. McFadden’s father turned Eric on to Jimi Hendrix and the Mahavishnu Orchestra at a young age—influences he would combine with flamenco, punk, and heavy metal to form a unique style.

Brett Turner

The music of Brett Turner has something most musicians only dream of. With Guitar riffs that rival Tom Petty, Lyrical story telling reminiscent Sheryl Crow and Bob Dylan, and the ability to portray the rock and roll spirit of Mr. Johnny Cash himself, this talented one man band is inventing his own genre.

Brett Turner - Singer-Songwriter, Ogden, Utah, Folk Rock Music, AcousticBrett Turner is a working singer-songwriter from Ogden, Utah carving out his niche entertaining crowds with his acoustic Americana songs reminiscent of the 50’s west cost folk rock scene. Using a loop pedal to record drums, tambourine, and vocals in real time Brett creates unique sound that people stop and take notice of. A patron going out for a drink one night approached the manager of the venue saying: “I heard the music when I was coming in and was floored to see that much sound coming from one guy. He’s got more energy and sound than most 5 piece bands that I’ve heard.”

It’s that distinctive sound that gets Brett noticed. Last year Brett was offered a distribution deal with the label Tate Music Group (Oklahoma). He spent 2009 performing, recording and producing his project “All Across America” (Available June 2010) in addition to holding down a full-time job at a local Newspaper. As soon as he finished “All Across America” Brett began working on three smaller EP projects entitled the “Red, White, And Blue Sessions” (June 2010). Each CD contains five original songs recorded in a live format. Brett has since quit his job from the newspaper and will be hitting the road and traveling through small to medium sized towns across the USA starting in June to support his projects and earn his living.
