Mike Bray and John Konesky surely take their music seriously, but kindly with the wink of an eye. From classic uptempo barn burnin,' truck drivin’ songs, as well as "tear in your beer” ballads, they leave no stone unturned. Wynchester has been surprising critics with their modern approach to classic songwriting; songs that tell tales, songs of heartbreak, and even some comedic numbers that will surely bring you back for another listen. It's a memorable mixed bag of good times, time and time again.
At their live shows, Wynchester surely stands out amongst its peers. A sharp dressed high energy act that will keep your boots tappin' till closing time. Influenced by Southern greats like Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band, as well as songwriters from Marty Robbins to Jimmy Webb, while tapping into the sense of humor inherent in acts such as Dr. Hook, Jerry Reed or Brad Paisley. As always, they plan to tour and make music as long as people care to listen, then again they'd probably do that regardless!
2018 will be an exciting year for Wynchester as they embark on their first European tour in support of Devon Allman, and later that year, opening for comedy-rock giants Tenacious D on all their North American tour dates. In 2019 the band will be touring as much as possible in the US and EU in support of their debut album.
Rachel Andie & The V Element are an Alternative Folk Six-piece band from Philadelphia, PA. They are currently working on their Debut album release as a six-piece, which will be independently released July 22nd, of 2018. The album will be called "Tu Me Manques" and will be accompanied by a full length Visual album produced by Skyler Jenkins Films. Consisting of local Musicians and Educators in Philadelphia, The V Element comprises of Rachel Andie on Guitar and Vocals, Mark Nestman on Bass Guitar, Drew Gerace on Drums, Mariah Del Rio on Back-up Vocals, Jay Rosen on Pedal Steel Guitar, and Logan Roth on Keys.
Jackson Howard’s soul-infused folk draws influence from James Taylor, Paul Simon and Ben Howard. Based in Philadelphia, Jackson has performed over 500 shows, touring the US, Canada, Iceland, Germany, Belgium and Netherlands, performing at SXSW 2018 and sharing bills with with Nicholas David, Megan Davies and Nick Jameson of Foghat among others. His latest release, Just for the Mystery recorded at Dark Horse Studios, has been played on over 100 radio stations in the US and Europe and has been licensed by MTV, E!, Discovery, and Netflix among other TV networks.
Having earned a PhD and worked in research prior to his music career, many of Jackson’s songs deal with change and our eternal search for self. After juggling a job at Washington University in St. Louis with an ever growing performance schedule, Howard ultimately left academia in 2015 to focus his energies on his music full time. Introspective yet generalizable, his lyrics touch regret, hope, self-deception, and love.
