THE GINGER UPS
Friday, December 2, 2016

THE GINGER UPS

The new original music of long-time partners and co-songwriters Jennifer Spector & Dave Tieman draws inspiration from their favorites: 50's Jazz, 60's cocktail culture, 70's classic tunesmiths, 80's Pop and 90's modern folk. They are crafting songs that are both fresh & timeless featuring David's exceptional musicianship on guitar/bass, Jennifer's emotive & unique vocals and their distinctive harmonies together. But here's a little more background...

Jennifer Spector and husband David Tieman moved to the Puget Sound area in 2006 to begin taking the Northwest by storm. Jennifer was one of Phoenix, AZ's most popular folk musicians and David was a highly respected jazz musician & fellow acoustic composer. Performing as the power duo, "The Hayburners", they released their self-titled CD in June 2008 featuring guest artists Mike Smith, pedal steel (Gatlin Brothers) and Zak Borden, mandolin (Grammy Nominated Kate MacKenzie, Rachel Harrington) Nova Karina Devonie, accordion (Sugar Hill Records) among others.

Soon after the move, Jennifer Spector received her first songwriting award in her new home state of Washington at the Tumbleweed Music Festival in Richland, WA. She had already been a national finalist at the 2004 prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festivals' Troubadour Competition for songwriting and twice at the Tucson Folk Festival's national honors. She has shared the stage with folk-greats David Wilcox and Christine Lavin and toured regularly around the Southwest.

Besides being recognized as a great songwriter himself, David Tieman's guitar playing was high in demand live and in the studio around the Phoenix Valley and now in Washington State. In their 2008 release, his song "Bluegrass Band" made it all the way to #19 on the National Folk Radio DJ list! He performed regularly with the SOS (Sounds of Swing) Big Band of Bellevue, WA and on occasion with multiple jazz/rock groups in and around the Puget Sound area.

BREAD and GRAVY

Bread & Gravy is a dynamic musical act from the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.
The group was formed in 2014 by Stephanie and Jess Doenges.

Stephanie Doenges (lead vocals, guitar and more) was born on the Olympic Peninsula
and spent her childhood on the Georgia Coast where she gained a love for roots music and spirituals. She studied music classically and has performed since
she was a child in a variety of groups and music styles.

"she can be smooth and velvety one moment and then soulfully growling the next... and you feel it...down in your soul." -fan quote-

Jess Doenges (piano, spoken word), originally from New York City, is a versatile, dynamic, high energy, self taught pianist with a big personality and a dry sense of humor. Jess performed, playing solo piano for many years around the Olympic Peninsula and he
MC'd one of the most popular open mics on the Olympic Peninsula at the Buzz in Sequim, WA. Jess is also a talented writer and performer of Spoken Word.
In his piano and poetry performances, he captivates and brings emotion to the surface.

"He'll make you laugh and make you cry and then make you laugh while you're still crying." -fan quote-

Bread & Gravy perform a variety of music styles including (but not limited to) blues, originals, classic rock, standards, americana, contemporary, and even
one disco tune.

"Bread and Gravy seamlessly weaves their way between genres, styles, and tempo. They pull their audience to them with an easy style and riveting vocals that alternately relaxes and excites the listener. They seem to make people happy. And, I can't think of a bigger compliment than that."

JESSE TAYLOR
Friday, December 23, 2016

JESSE TAYLOR

Jesse Taylor is a true American original. An authentic rodeo cowboy, Jesse’s passion for singing and songwriting has taken him to dive bars and honky-tonks throughout much of the West.

His poetic lyrics and haunting melodies capture the flavor of rodeo life with a soulful authenticity. His songs speak powerfully of the American West, of its timeless values and virtues. And they do so in ways that remind us all of the ups and downs in our own lives.

Jesse was born and raised in Arlington WA. With his Mom named after a Johnny Cash song and his Dad a team roper and songwriter, Jesse grew up with rodeo -- and music -- in his blood. He began roping at age 3, was given his first guitar at age 4 and rode his first bull at 14. He began writing songs at 16 and two years later went on the road in his pick-up truck with his dog, Sandy.

Jesse spent the past 2 years working on the Hawaiian island of Lana’i. During the day, he led trail rides for resort guests and tended the horses. At night, he’d entertain guests with his singing at The Four Seasons Lodge at Ko’ele. He counts Chris LeDoux, George Strait, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra and Jimi Hendrix among his music influences.

Jesse recently recorded his first studio album, Out Here In The Country, at Blackbird Studio in Nashville. Through hard work and lean living, Jesse Taylor is living his dream.
