Sam Russell, Joshua Schramm (Modern Relics), Kurtis Dengler And Norman Baker At Conor Byrne says
Sam Russell (Sam Russell & The Harborrats) is a Seattle-based singer-songwriter who whips up hearty fixin's of garage-rock, soul music, doo-wop, rockabilly, folk and a side of shimmering synth-pop glaze with help from his collective of collaborators The Harborrats and his live band The Teen Soul Explosion

Joshua Schram is the singer in local Country/Soul band Modern Relics.... Modern Relics music fills in the spaces between the soulful songwriting of Bill Withers and Van Morrison and the twangy energy of Glen Campbell and Johnny Cash.

Self proclaimed “Country-soul” artists, MR weaves horns and pedal steel around tuneful melodies and a solid grooves—sounding at once familiar and new.

Kurtis Dengleris a Seattle-based guitar player & and singer / songwriter. His sound is a mix of Rock & Roll, ‘60s Pop and Soul.

Growing up on Lopez Island, WA, Kurtis started playing music at a young age. By the age of 17, he already was touring as a guitarist with world-renown vocalist Paul Rodgers (Bad Company, Free, Queen), performing at venues across Europe and North America including London’s Royal Albert Hall. Referring to him as “the old man”, Rodgers said of Kurtis in an interview: “He added something very creative and very fresh… It's a natural ability really”.

Kurtis has since gained years of experience performing and recording both locally and internationally. Most recently he recorded a self-titled debut solo album of all-original material. The album features Kurtis on all instruments and showcases his diverse and melodic songs.

Kurtis also plays in the Seattle-area original band Stella: facebook.com/stella.seattle.band/

Norman Baker & The Backroads... Norman Baker spent his childhood wreaking havoc, inventing comic characters, writing raps, and playing sports in Kent, Wa. Surrounded by a family of musicians, he was first influenced by his mother, father, and uncle, as well as Patsy Cline, the Beatles, Bob Marley, and Tom Waits. Since picking up the guitar and bass at the age of 12 he's been composing music and playing various instruments in many bands throughout the U.S., Chile, and Nigeria. These days he's influenced by Justin Townes Earle, George Jones, The Band, Charley Pride, Neil Young, Doc Watson, and continues impressing new fans at places like Seattle's Folklife Festival, The Tractor Tavern, Seattle Art Museum, and Columbia City Theater with his band Norman Baker & the Backroads. The 2nd release, entitled Present Day, is due out later this winter.
