Bio: To suggest that Paco has thus far led an interesting and colorful life is an understatement. After a 37-year Real Estate Career as a CEO, at age 64 he changed direction completely, to pursue a lifelong dream of singing, acting and entertaining. In sharing his dreams with others, his goal is to simply help them find more joy, peace and meaning in their own lives through music and the visual arts.
To date Paco has recorded well over 125 songs and released six full-length CDs. You can find all of Paco’s music on Spotify, Itunes, etc and we are so happy to report that many of Paco’s Oldies and others are currently getting radio play! Paco is now performing live with a full band.
Bio: Two words come to mind when describing Steff Neff; dark and sparkly. She creates a unique atmosphere by combining sugary pop melodies with much darker lyrics that bleed raw emotion. Taylor Swift’s former manager, and the founder of The Music Industry Blueprint, Rick Barker says “[She] had me from the very, very, beginning…I really dig [her]”. Tom Mckinney, former voice teacher of Beyonce and Demi Lovato, has said, “[She] has a wonderful voice, a really marvelous voice”.
Steff has a broad range of skills as both a classically trained musician and experienced lyricist. Julius Robinson, the director of creative operations at musicsupervisor.com says “[Steff] is very well articulated. I can tell [she’s] a great writer” and Tom Jackson of onstage success states “I love [her] voice…I love what [she’s] doing.” Steff Neff was one of 23 accepted into the Belmont’s Songwriting program, out of thousands of applicants, in the United States in 2015. Steff was also one of 20 applicants chosen internationally to participate in the “It All Starts with A Song” songwriting retreat hosted by the former VP of Warner Chappell Music Group, Judy Stakee in 2017. Judy says, “Between her strong vocals, pop melodies, and insightful lyrics, it’s hard to believe she is only !”
Bio: Sweet Chaos is a young female hard rock duo from Dallas, TX. Comprised of Sydney Hefley (bass guitar, vocals) and Payton Taylor (drums), the band has toured the great state of Texas and has become a local draw, garnering significant attention performing at many prestigious venues across the Dallas Metroplex. The band has a broad range of musical influences, including Muse and Royal Blood, but have created a unique powerful sound that is undeniably all their own. Combining current and relevant lyrics with electric live performances, audiences are energized and left wanting for more. The band received the MXD Mag Rock and Metal 2016 Rising Talent in Texas Award and the duo was honored again in 2017 by MXD Mag by receiving individual awards for Best Rising Talent in Texas Bass Guitarist and Drummer, respectively.
Sweet Chaos and Sydney have been added to the Ernie Ball Artist Roster and
Payton proudly endorses Pearl Drums.
Bio:14 year old Ava Bryant hails from Spring, Texas, USA but there is nothing ‘small
town’ about this singer – musician – songwriter – artist!
Ava is recognized for her powerful voice and impressive vocal range. When she’s
not writing new music or performing at local venues, you can find her hanging out with her friends or enjoying a hot cheese pizza.
Her sound the storytelling side of Ed Sheeran meets the alt-pop vibe of Julia Michaels.
Ava’s impressive harmonies and amazing vocal range are sure to impress. Her voice meshes flawlessly with her tracks and brings them to life in authentic ways.
Ava is about to release her newest single, “Always You” and it’s her best work yet! Ava was in Los Angeles in March 2018 to work with recent Berklee College of Music graduates and
crazy-talented producers Jason Strong and Peder Etholm-Idsoe. Their creative energy was perfect for “Always You”, a relatable love song with a storytelling that evokes visuals and feelings that Ava is known for!
Sons of Levin
Single By Sunday
Bio: As accolades go… being voted ‘Best Emerging International Artist’ at Toronto’s Indie Week 2017, is not a bad one to have! Single By Sunday spent most of 2017 building their fan base, working on their sound and ultimately honing their live performance.
Not wishing to be pigeonholed, as ‘just another pop band’ they are defining their own genre; melodic pop punk, fuelled with their usual catchy hooks, lead riffs and fun filled live energy that makes them a draw at any show.
The band began 2017 with a headline show on the mainstage at the O2 ABC in Glasgow, this was followed by a respectable 16 festival appearances, including, Carfest North & South, Belladrum, Camden Rocks and Sunflower Fest (Northern Ireland) to name a few. A total of 40 live shows throughout the year has meant countless hours on the road going from one end of the country to the other in an effort to widen their fan base and prove that they are prepared to put in the work. With comparisons still being drawn between themselves and the likes of My Chemical Romance and Green Day, Single By Sunday, show no signs of letting up from their relentless schedule.
