BEN SOLLEE

Ben Sollee is like no other cellist/singer-songwriter you have ever heard! His style is a mix of the Appalachian music he heard while growing up in Kentucky to the R&B style that fits his soulful voice and thoughtful lyrics. At the heart of Ben’s drive is the desire to bring communities together with music and he likes the idea of doing good things with good people. These ideas have been well received by other musicians, as his collaborations have shown.

CHUCK PROPHET and the MISSION EXPRESS

One of the driving forces behind cult heroes Green on Red and the influential L.A. Paisley Underground scene in the 1980s, Prophet's creative mold was actually cast in San Francisco. Recalls Prophet, "Temple Beautiful is the name of a long closed rock and roll club which was between Bill Graham's iconic Fillmore Ballroom and the tragic storefront church founded by the Reverend Jim Jones. It's where I saw my first gigs."
