My Monster Heart is Lauren Fincham and Brian Homan. Evocative and earthy, Southern urban folk-rock artist Lauren echoes the ages yet sounds like no other. She's shared the stage with John Mayer, Gamble Rogers, and Toad The Wet Sprocket, and been featured on independent stations across the US and abroad. Lauren's played on numerous compilations, benefit concerts, and commercial spots, was the Jacksonville Super Bowl performer for Westwood One, a Folk Alliance OASIS featured artist, and a TEDx musical guest. Her rich and varied four-album discography spans nearly two decades of collaboration, friendship and visual artistry.  Brian 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.

Grammy-winning guitarist Bill Mize is a son of Tennessee, and a fitting representative his state’s rich musical heritage. His critically lauded fingerstyle compositions are fluid and intricate, and their delivery masterful. Critics speak of his ability to “transport” the listener. The link to his Tennessee roots are unmistakable, but so are the elements of the far wider musical realm he inhabits, and the mixture is as intoxicating as Tennessee moonshine. With a twist. Bill is a past winner of the National Fingerstyle Guitar Competition. Guitar Player Magazine has labeled this  event as the “U.S. Open of guitar competitions.” Bill received a GRAMMY Award for his collaboration with David Holt on the recording Stellaluna, and has been featured on the popular “Windham Hill Guitar Sampler” and “Masters of the Acoustic Guitar” by Narada Records. In 2009, Bill’s music appeared in the Ken Burns documentary “The National Parks: American’s Best Idea.”
