If you want to hear stories about Florida legends, colorful characters and backwater places then listen to Al Poindexter perform his own songs, old timey songs and blues tunes backed up on his National steel bottleneck guitar or fast picking claw hammer banjo. Al has been a performer and avid collector of Florida folk lore and songs for over 20 years and writes fresh, new tunes about life in old Florida. Al Poindexter plays festivals, coffee houses, schools and libraries in North Florida.


Anitra Jay

Anitra Jay is an acoustic soul singer-songwriter based in Houston, TX. With a recent musical feature on HGTV's Tiny House Hunters, Anitra Jay presents a whimsically soulful all-caution-to-the-wind interpretation of music. Born and raised in New Orleans, Anitra's vocals highlight her roots in Jazz, Soul, and Gospel.  With a musical style often compared to India.Arie and Chrisette Michele, Anitra Jay offers a sweet down-to-earth blend of soul and poetry with modern sensibilities.  Her personality and expert improvisational skills set her performances square between the raw edge of improv comedy and sultry soaked soul.  She effortlessly combines soul-catching melodies with tales of real life experiences wrought with motivational messages that leave the listener entertained, inspired, and ready to take on the world.  She is currently working on her fourth album, a whimsical take on life called "Work in Progress."

With song placements on four Nashville albums, Savanna Leigh Bassett 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 creativity pours from one of the many stringed instruments she accompanies herself with. Some artists choose to leave these gifts on the stage, Savanna 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.
