East Coast Folk-Jazz meets West Coast Folk-Bluegrass.

Chris Parreira and Laura Lee Imhoff met in Austin, TX in the Spring of 2009. While very different stylistically, they shared a similar work ethic and an immense respect for each others music and immediately became close friends and gig buddies. Laura Lee is a Southern girl at heart, but grew up on a small farm in Massachusetts. She taught herself to play an old guitar; stringing her poetry to a melody. In her late teens, Laura Lee moved to Boston and continued to grow as a young singer-songwriter. Chris

A lively and dynamic performer, Laura Lee Imhoff serenades the audience with her sexy, sultry voice; roping them in with heartfelt, storytelling lyrics of broken hearts, new loves and old loves. Her percussive guitar playing is similar to that of Ani DiFranco, but she blends it with an honest, original voice that some people might put somewhere between Norah Jones and Regina Spector. The young songstress has toured from the East Coast to the heart of the South and is now making her debut along the West Coast.

Chris Parreira also has a very energetic, percussive style of guitar playing, but takes a slightly different approach. It’s folk, it’s bluegrass, it’s jazz, but it’s also fresh and modern sounding. A smooth baritone, Parreira sings from the heart about the joy, the loneliness and every emotion in between that comes with being a traveling songwriter.

Performing both solo, and as a duo, Chris Parreira and Laura Lee Imhoff will meet up in San Francisco, CA this April for a tour that will take them to Seattle, WA and everywhere in between.

Acclaimed for his passionate and energetic live performances, Jon Davidson tours relentlessly in support of his latest album, Perfect Cliche. The first two singles off the album have garnered airplay on over 200 FM stations across six radio formats: Modern Rock, AAA, Hot AC, Country, Rock, and College, and charted at #1 on several stations.

Jon Davidson is a solo artist as well as the frontman for the hard rock band Silversafe. The singles "Beautifully Bittersweet" and "Going Home," from Perfect Cliche, have garnered airplay on 200 FM stations in 45 states, and will be included in several upcoming films and MTV shows. His single, "What Can I Say?" has been selected for inclusion in the 2010 film, "Twisted Redemption." He has toured in 5 countries and played with artists such as Powerman 5000, Puddle of Mudd, The Exies, and Hurt.

Russell Stafford is an Australian born singer/songwriter residing in Portland, Oregon. Since releasing his debut album “Freshwater” in 2005, Russell has shared the stage with such prominent artists as Augustana, Anna Nalick, Josh Radin, Mat Kearney, Meese and more. His unique sound, powerful performances and genuine character have garnered him both local and national radio airplay, and a dedicated Northwest fan base.

In 2008, Russell released the much awaited follow-up to Freshwater. Fittingly titled "Between You & I", he continued his efforts to break out of typical singer/songwriter restraints. In 2009, Crucial Music Publishing began using songs from Between U & I for select national broadcasters and independent films

The album weaves from the pop/rock single "Cheap Wine”, to the all out rocker, "Every time I come down" with a cohesive sound that’s as unexpected as it is unique. Joined by guitarist Kevin Hahn (Animotion, Tri-Polar, Castella, Kleveland), Bassist Dain Ryan (Dirty Little Fingers) and drummer, Jason Fellman (Breakfast Club, Jason Fellman Band), "Between You & I" is a testament to the diverse talent of this young songwriter.

Russell also lends his music and talents to many local and national charities, including the Muscular Dystrophy Association, The Humane Society and the Doernbecher Children's Hospital.
