Those Who Shall Be Heard:

The Devine Danny Allen:
With echoes of Wilco, Sparklehorse, and Squeeze these abundantly-creative, trippy, odd-ball songs seem to bond dreamy swirls of lush pop with country twang, Beatles pop with modern jangle, and then some. One of the most intriguing facets of Danny Allen's music is his ability to create an alternate universe — a rabbit hole into which he beckons the listener to follow him down.

The Scintillating Scott Mickelson:
Scott is a Grammy balloted artist & producer from the Bay Area. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Mickelson has lived in the Bay Area since the 80’s. In San Francisco, Mickelson can be seen performing at the top venues including The Fillmore and Great American Music Hall. When not on tour, Mickelson produces from his Marin studio. Mickelson has opened for acts that include David Bromberg Quintet, Matt Nathanson, Larry Campbell and Terese Williams (Grammy producer), Jim Lauderdale (Grammy artist), Griffin House, Nick Lowe, Dr. John, Smashmouth, Jonathan Richman, Peter Case and Rob Hotchkiss (Train, Grammy artist).

The new album “A Wondrous Life,” and single, “No Such Luck,” streams now on Spotify. https://open.spotify.com/album/5SxwOSvLGnUzHKVgkq2rLH?si=eLfvmZs5QFKq7In6hNV76A&fo=1

The Malleable Mick Shaffer:
Mick Shaffer started playing guitar when he was 14 years old. He started practicing the guitar at 40 years old. Prior to the practice of practicing Mick was an actor, stand-up & improv comedian, & comedy writer for 16 years in New York City & Los Angeles. He was an original first company member of The First Amendment Comedy Improv Troupe in NYC & appeared in assorted commercials, voice-overs, episodic television, off-off Broadway plays, & wrote & performed in several of his own one-man shows. He has worked with the likes of Robin Williams, Bruce Willis, Alan Arkin, Gilbert Gottfried, & Denis Leary. When the heartache (& head trauma) became too much he escaped LA & moved to San Francisco in 1996 where began the aforementioned practicing of guitar which served as a gateway drug to bouts of warbling, & writing of tunes. He has performed as a solo artist in the Bay Area & played with lovely folks like Crowsong, Wee The Band, Mary Elizabeth Beckman, and The Sugar Ponies. Mick has 2 full-length albums out: “Fool For Love” & “I’ll Take The Blame,” both available on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby. Both were recorded & produced by Danny Allen (see above). Mick is currently at work on his 3rd album recorded & produced by Scott Mickelson (ditto above…do you see the pattern at work here…?).

The San Francisco Examiner has called Mick “a phenomenal bottle-neck blues guitarist.” His song “Chicken Shed Roof (Smokin’ Drum Blues)” was used as the theme music for the national podcast “The Aging Badass.”
