With song placements on four Nashville albums, this talented songwriter is crafting with industry professionals and entertaining crowds with her original country-pop sensibility and passionate performances. Her voice conveys beauty and her lyrics, wit, while her musical creativity pours from one of the many stringed instruments she accompanies herself with. Some artists choose to leave these gifts on the stage, Savanna Leigh Bassett has chosen to not only entertain the masses but give to those in need. She believes strongly in the work she does with Body and Soul, a non-profit organization using music and arts in hospitals to bring healing to patients with ailments including cancer, heart disease, mental illness, and renal failure. Driven by integrity, musical ambition, and a deep sense of community, her empowering message of love and self-worth is inspirational, as is her energetic personality.

Blue Veronica is Lauren Fincham, a featured artist for independent and internet radio stations across the US and abroad, has shared the stage with such diverse notables as Gamble Rogers, John Mayer, India Arie and performs in the house band for Swamp Radio. "Seeing her live is like hearing a broadcast from some long lost early-'70s FM radio station. Soft ballads are book ended by energetic rock, and all are presented without unnecessary gabbing." Providing the unexpected backdrop to Lauren’s songs is the extraordinary electric guitarist, Michael Pearson, who has performed with area like the Glass Camels, Crawfish of Love, Chain of Fools, 86 Love, and the Jacksonville Symphony. Brian Homan fell in love with the pedal steel guitar and dobro after listening to Bluegrass and Americana music on Philadelphia radio. Brian first played with several local Knoxville, TN bands, performing shows with many of the top Bluegrass stars; then spent several years on the road playing country rock before settling down in Jacksonville where he has lived for over thirty years, playing and recording with many area bands.

Elvis Kabong! is Elvis "Roy" Kabong on geetars and singing, Elvis "Thommy" Kabong on bottleneck slide and singing, and Elvira "Lauren" Kabong on floor tom, percussion, and singing. The Elvi play "rocky tonk" acoustic-based folk-punk rock 'n' roll. Roy has played bass in more bands than he cares to remember for more years than he can remember. As a songwriter he is noted for his "Knife-sharp rhythms and dark, intense lyrics" as much as his dynamic and impassioned performances. His debut album, All Is Well, has been called "A punkish folk-rock tromp through twelve songs about love, death, and birds." Thommy, a legendary North Florida electric guitarist and songwriter, has collaborated in various punk rock bands, most notably Stevie Stilletto, Radio Berlin, and the Mighty Powerball. His varied musical tastes include Jacque Brel, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, and Fear. Lauren, a featured artist for independent and internet radio stations across the US and abroad, has shared the stage with such diverse notables as Gamble Rogers, John Mayer, India Arie and performs in the house band for Swamp Radio.
