Bob Sima (pronounced sEYE-ma) is to music what Wayne Dyer, Don Miguel Ruiz, and Eckhart Tolle are to books and Rumi, Hafiz, and David Whyte are to poetry. He has been called “Eckhart Tolle with a guitar”. He is a “Transformational Troubadour”, a way-shower, a guide, an awakener, and a musical mystic. Through the medium of melody and message, he leads listeners to an expanded consciousness, deeper sense of connection, and inner peace and purpose. His music bridges daily life and soul consciousness, the eternal with the now. He delivers instantly accessible songs that take up residence and resonance in your soul.

Sima is a dynamic singer-songwriter, performer, storyteller, speaker, servant of humanity, workshop and retreat leader, meditation and breathwork facilitator, and creative collaborator — often weaving all of these elements into a single performance. His soul-stirring performances straddle the worlds of folk, kirtan, soul, and gospel as he navigates audiences deeply on a journey, both individually and as a collective. Flowing with the unique energy at each event and rarely making a set-list, he is a master at going from foot-stomp to pin-drop. He guides audiences into a space for things – epiphanies, light bulbs coming on, shifts – to happen. His performances invite a visceral embodiment of the music and message in a wide-open space of possibilities.

“Bob’s songs sound like they could have been bursting out of back porch radios for the past 40 years. But they don’t make you nostalgic so much as they make you look forward to what Sima will do next.” ~Acoustic Guitar Magazine

Marc Douglas Berardo

Rhode Island-based, Marc Douglas Berardo, is a hardworking, fast moving, adventure seeking, keen observer who lives for the story and the song. In what amounts to song length works of fiction, Berardo’s sharply drawn portraits cast a net on unusual and beguiling characters and places. With a painter’s eye for detail, and music firmly rooted in the great American sound, Berardo sings about circus retirees, expatriates in Florida rum bars, union iron workers, old poets, aimless New York City debutantes, near death car crashes, hard nosed fishermen and of course, the changes that experience brings to everyone. He does this “simply and well” with what Rambles Cultural Magazine calls: “careful images and great tunes.” Regarding the new CD, Marc says: “All of the lyrics on Downhauler are, in some way, about searching for home, the possibility of renewal and the promise of adventure. The characters I was writing about are all at some kind of crossroads or transition." He has been nationally recognized for his music and performances (Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Song contest, Telluride Troubadour Contest, Sisters Folk Festival, 2013 Rams Head On Stage Rammie for Show of the Year). He has a gift for powerful lyrics, haunting melodies and polished story telling. His music is classic and timeless. In the past year he has shared the stage with heavyweights such as The Doobie Brothers, America, Cheryl Wheeler and Livingston Taylor. When not playing his songs all over the place, MDB lives in a heavily secluded and fortified compound on a river near the ocean in Westerly, Rhode Island.

"Berardo sounds like a fishing-town Bruce Springsteen (in Nebraska mode), a soft-toned Don Henley, or a James Taylor with a literary side. The comparisons to singer-songwriter greats are infinite. They're also apt."
