Mindy Dillard is an adventurer and an award-winning singer-songwriter. She plays clawhammer banjo and rhythm guitar, often in alternate tunings to accompany her electric and raw, crystal-clear voice. Her music pulsates with funky rhythmic grooves and sparkles with heartfelt storytelling. Mindy is a mythological scholar and has performed her one woman folk rock opera based on Grimm’s fairytales internationally. In June 2015 she won Susanne Millsaps performing songwriter competition in Salt Lake City, Utah (which is also her hometown). She opened for folk icon John Gorka at the 2015 Utah Arts Festival. Mindy’s musical influences include Joni Mitchell, Dar Williams, Stephen Sondheim and Ella Fitzgerald. A genre bender, Mindy’s sound holds shades of old-time Appalachia, contemporary folk, gospel, musical theatre and rhythm and blues. Musical Alchemist: Transform or transmute the ineffable into healing stories. “If Mindy Dillard keeps doing what she’s doing now, you are going to hear about her music. And you will be glad you did.” — John Gorka www.mindydillard.com
Elizabeth’s brand has developed around her honesty, openness and passion for bringing people together. Her songwriting is inspired by everyone from Billy Joel to Skylar Grey, everything from nature to the big city, and all of the crazy people and events in-between. Her style is defined as having the vocal grit that one might possess if they were the love child of Melissa Etheridge and Joe Cocker. Assuming that child grew up to be best friends with T. Swift and sing in a barbershop quartet with Justin Timberlake. Elizabeth's style keeps your feet tapping and her lyrical delivery will take you on an emotional trip. If nothing else, she will make you smile.
“The only way to explain this music is genuine, from-the-heart Americana. Elizabeth holds nothing back from her audience and uses her music to connect with others, spread love and eliminate judgments. Each song is different, but the honesty stays the same.” www.elizabethhareza.com
