Mere Woodard was raised on a well-balanced diet of the Beastie Boys, Joni Mitchell, G Love and Special Sauce, and Simon and Garfunkel. In 2006, she left her hometown of Pittsburgh to follow the sun and find her heart in Jacksonville. Throughout her adolescence, Mere starred in musical theater productions. Mere wrote her first album, Dance in the Rain, for her daughter. The album was released independently in 2013. In 2014, Mere dusted off her writing notebook and ventured back into the studio. Her 2016 album, Like the Sea, captures her eclectic, unguarded, indie, folk style.

Popp Over America is an episodic TV show/web series currently in development by New York City musician and motorcyclist, Joe Popp. The show will follow Popp on a four-month non-stop tour through the 48 contiguous United States as a singer-songwriter on a motorcycle. Joe will be plugged in with cameras and microphones to absorb local culture on the adventurous roads of America. Man. Bike. Guitar. A former punk rocker, Joe Popp will perform solo acoustic concerts, write site-specific music, and give viewers a taste of the sweet, gritty side of America. Visuals for the show will have an unvarnished, uncut, unrehearsed, in-the-moment quality in keeping with Joe’s D.I.Y. creative ethos. The show will be a rich combination of travel, food, music, culture, and philosophical exploration much in the vein of the book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Riverside Arts Market is the last appearance of his tour. Check out more at: www.poppoveramerica.com
