John John Brown

In the winter of 2013, right after his twin boys were born, John John Brown started writing songs that would turn into his debut album The Road. No Depression calls it, “a supple and suggestive blend of astute Americana accompanied by a quiet, reflective glow”, while Elmore Magazine dubbed him “one of the more promising young names in folk music today”. John John’s live performances have been garnering critical claim as well. In 2015 and 2017 he was chosen as a Kerrville Folk Finalist for the legendary “New Folk” Competition. He went home a winner of the South Florida Folk Fest in 2016, and he was recently selected as a 2017 Emerging Artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Steeped in good storytelling and fingerpicking melodies, John John Brown seems to have discovered part of the mystery that surrounds the great singer/songwriter tradition.

Steve Robinson

Steve, winner of the 2007 Long Island Blues Society’s Blues Challenge, is a native Long Islander. He has been a carpenter, high school English teacher, commercial shell fisherman, truck driver, landscape crew foreman, air traffic controller, union rep., and computer programmer (and those are just some of the jobs). “It hasn’t been dull”, as Ellen, his wife of 39 years, puts it. What he is now is one hell of a songwriter, guitarist, singer, and performer. Steve is a self-taught guitarist and has developed his own unique finger style combining driving rhythms with tasteful licks.
