The Bands

Marc Broussard

"My fans have been asking me for years," said Marc Broussard, his road-hewn voice unmistakable over the phone. "Every time I come out with a record, they're like, 'It's good but it doesn't do the live show justice.' With Keep Coming Back, I feel that we've finally delivered an album that does exactly that."

Samantha Fish

After launching her recording career in 2009, Samantha Fish quickly established herself as a rising star in the contemporary blues world. Since then, the charismatic young singer-guitarist-songwriter has earned a reputation as a rising guitar hero and powerful live performer, while releasing a series of acclaimed albums that have shown her restless creative spirit consistently taking her in new and exciting musical directions.

Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal

Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal’s combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer’s honest lyrics and his soulful (sometimes in-your-face) vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.
