Thomas Wynn & The Believers
Thomas Wynn & The Believers personifies rugged, yet uplifting spirited rock, sprinkled with southern soul R&B. Tunes brutally honest & heartfelt, the themes go beyond years of drugs, heartbreaks & hypocrisy to deliver a message of hope.
“Soulful, gritty tunes, some as sweet as honeysuckle and others ferociously jagged ...reminiscent of Levon Helm, Neil Young and the Allman Brothers, but they still boldly radiate a sound and southern charm all their own.” Metromix
A combination of blistering rock and southern soul, this fiery ensemble has been playing the Orlando, Florida original music circuit for the last three-plus years and have quickly garnered local celebrity status. Hailing from a musical family, the band is heavily influenced by Thomas and Olivia's father, Tom Wynn, who was the drummer for Cowboy. Through out the 70’s, Cowboy toured with the Allman Brothers Band, and released four albums on the legendary Capricorn Records.Thomas’ spirit-moving vocals are uniquely supported by sister Olivia Wynn’s engaging and captivating voice and presence. Her strong vocal
harmonies and wide-eyed response is the perfect companion to his yearning banshee cries.

A singer-songwriter and guitarist from Alexandria, Virginia by way of Indianapolis, Mary-eL is injecting edgy rock and soul into the DMV music scene. This Jill-of-all-trades has hosted her own radio show, acted in short films, co-hosted local TV programs, is a highly sought-after studio session vocalist, and is well known for her energetic stage presence.
The last few years have been great for Mary-eL...in August 2015 she performed with John Kadlecik (Further, Dark Star Orchestra), Ron Holloway, and Beau Sasser (Kung Fu) at the Peach Festival. That same month she provided background vocals for Melvin Seals & the Jerry Garcia Band at the 2015 Lockn Fest. In October she sang with Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), G.E. Smith (Saturday Night Live, Hall & Oates), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), and Billy Corgan(Smashing Pumpkins) at D.A.R Constitution Hall for a benefit concert to aid the wounded veterans of MusiCorps. Then in November she embarked on a 6-week, 28 city tour with The John Kadlecik Band as both a vocalist and guitarist.
