David Ryan Harris
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist David Ryan Harris always sings, writes, and performs with soul. Whether it be in early bands such as Follow For Now and Brand New Immortals or over the course of six full-length solo albums, he tells stories that resonate. He’s carried this same spirit while performing with the likes of John Mayer, Dave Matthews, and Santana or producing for Cassandra Wilson and Guy Sebastian— with whom he co-wrote the RIAA platinum-certified “Battle Scars”. Most recently, it drove 2015’s Lightyears, which boasted guest spots from John Mayer, India.Arie, and Nikka Costa. He received acclaim from All Music Guide, Glide Magazine, Elmore Magazine, Performer Magazine, AXS, Relix Magazine, and many others in addition to performing on Fox, CBS, and The CW in between packed tours. His next chapter unfolds on his 2017 seventh offering Songs For Other People.
In order to track Songs For Other People, he tapped the talents of drummer Terrence Clark who he met on YouTube, keyboard player Zach Ray, and GRAMMY Award winning producer Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Dr. Dre, Fiona Apple, Maroon 5) on bass. They cut the album’s seven jams in less than three weeks’ time during 2016. Between returning to the road on guitar duty for John Mayer in 2017, Harris will be performing across North America on solo shows.
Jeff Cotton’s Gin Joint is a Bay Area-based Americana, roots rock band featuring Jeff Cotton on vocals, guitars, and mandolin, Scott Robertson on guitar, Mike Toth on bass, and Kris Jones on drums. The group formed in 2000 and has been playing shows at various venues in and around San Francisco ever since. The songs have been described as upbeat folky, country, and rhythmic rock covering stories of life, love won, love lost, and social and political ideals. 2015 marks the debut record release by Jeff Cotton’s Gin Joint called “Never Touching Ground” which is available as a CD or download from CDBaby.com and for download from iTunes and Amazon.
