Tal Wilkenfeld is a musical marvel; the kind of dynamic young talent whose fresh vision and uncanny intuition puts a whole new perspective on an age-old art form. Like a muse-lit meteor, Tal blazed onto the music scene as a teen, sitting in with the Allman Brothers within months of her 2006 arrival in New York City. By the end of 2007, she had released her acclaimed, instrumental debut, Transformation, and hit the road with Chick Corea. Tal went on to appeared on A&E with Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, then joined Jeff Beck’s world tour for what culminated in her global breakout moment. Her performance at Eric Clapton’s 2007 Crossroads Festival in Chicago, which has generated more than 10 million plays on YouTube.
 
Unanimous praise reverberated throughout the industry, leading Tal to relocate to Los Angeles and begin a steady recording pace with such artists as: Prince, Macy Gray, Trevor Rabin, Jackson Browne, Joe Walsh, Ringo Starr, Brian Wilson, Toto, Todd Rundgren and Ryan Adams— all happening in-between high profile tours with Jeff Beck that found her backing guests like Sting, Clapton, Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, Steven Tyler, Buddy Guy, David Gilmour. Plus, Billy Gibbons, which led to her role anchoring Pharrell and Hanz Zimmer on the 2015 GRAMMY Awards. Ever the growing artist, Tal’s collaborations with Jackson Browne and encouragement from Jeff Beck and Herbie Hancock to make her live vocal debut with their bands served as key transitions to her next path as a singer-songwriter. Stellar singing samples include her poignant cover of “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” from the Amazon holiday collection stream, All Is Bright, and her stirring YouTube channel performance of “Chelsea Hotel.”
 
Tal released two new singles – “Corner Painter” and “Haunted Love” – this Spring 2016 in support of her first headline tour, and her North American shows opening for The Who. The new music is an intoxicating, intimate reimagining of the singer-songwriter idiom. The singles are comprised of improvisational sonic bloodlines, rock energy and intensity, and lyrics rich in both realism and folk symbolism—all delivered by Tal’s vibrant, revealing vocals and with her world-class musicianship.
With a sound steeped in the sunlit tones of Laurel Canyon, the mid 60's pop and R&B of the Brill Building, and the lo-fi synths of early progressive rock, Los Angeles resident Steve Taylor makes moody, cinematic folk music that pushes the envelope of the singer/songwriter genre. A multi-instrumentalist with a remarkably diverse session background, he’s recently been tapped to play with everyone from electro-soul group Rhye to California roots rocker Nicki Bluhm. Layering lush acoustic guitars with vintage organs, pianos, analog synthesizers, and dead drums, he creates a sound that's both modern and thoroughly informed by 70's AM rock.
