Cutting her teeth by sneaking into venues and clubs to perform at eighteen years old, Michelle has spent the last seven years developing her own blend of Americana music.
Pulling from such influences as Gram Parsons, Doc Watson and Dylan, you can hear tastes of Folk, Classic Country, and American roots music.
With frequent comparisons to Alison Krauss or a young Emmylou Harris, She delivers a performance that feels both raw yet refined.
Declining her recruitment from NBC's The Voice, she traded bright lights for hard work and a chance to serve the song.
Currently recording their first full length album with a heavy touring schedule, they continue to showcase their music regionally with lush harmony and ample twang.
Green River Blues
Green River Blues is a heavy riff based blues rock group from Salt Lake City. Inspired by artists like Led Zeppelin & Jimi Hendrix. The voice and lyrics of frontman Richard Cory have a natural J.J. Cale feel to them. The groups writing touches on the topics of sex, love, heartbreak & satisfaction.
Jane Lyon is a seasoned singer-songwriter who is making a hard-hitting come back after a five-year hiatus from performing professionally. The CATALYST fundraiser show will be her first time back onstage since her high school days of performing at places like Desert Rocks Music Festival and The Deer Valley Summer Concert Series.
Her sound has evolved, but still holds the same languishing, honest and auspicious zest while her voice has grown to be more out-spoken, vindicated and liberal. She idolizes Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and Robert Plant’s folk revival while drawing inspiration from modern sounds like Kendrick Lamar, Alt-J and Fiona Apple. Jane’s music is intimate and best when performed around a campfire with friends. She draws upon silence of the space to bring your ear closer to the strum of her guitar. You can find her entire history of performances and original songs on Youtube.
Halloween only comes but once a year. Knowing the importance of a good and spooky dance party, Talia Keys and The Love have planned their 7th Annual Halloween Bash to be no different!

Bring your spandex and bangs and lets dance the night away!
Talia Keys is a genre crossing multi-instrumental "musical powerhouse" bringing you her brand of Soul-Funk-Rock n' Roll, with unique vocal stylings and a storytelling flow. Sourcing energies largely compared to the bluesy rawness of Janis Joplin and the fire of Jimi Hendrix. Synergizing that old soul vibe with new school sounds, best described by Katie Bain as "blistering." Having been "struck by her talent, stage presence and refreshing candor." - Insomniac: 2014 Best of Electric Forest. Talia Keys & The Love have been playing shows together for the last three years. From music festivals to music venues, original music to full blown tribute shows, TK & The Love are high energy, engaging and unique! Creating music you can dance to and feel.
