Michael O’Connor is a guitarist, singer and songwriter living in Washington State. For decades he has performed and recorded with musicians including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Slaid Cleaves, Adam Carroll, Susan Gibson, Terri Hendrix, and Jeff Plankenhorn. A lifetime of hard-won experience has allowed Michael a rare insight into the world of the rough, the faithless, the romantic, and the unlucky, all of whom find refuge in his songs. Michael has toured throughout the United States and overseas, performing in esteemed venues and festivals. In June 2010, Michael was inducted into the South Texas Music Walk of Fame in Corpus Christi, Texas, with a star bearing his name. He has released seven albums and is continuing to release new music.
Jason came to songwriting early. When he picked up a guitar as an adolescent, he was more interested in creating his own material than covering what was on the radio and MTV. While The Beatles and Beach Boys were formative bands for him, The Band became a favorite as well and they helped open a new door to him of Americana and roots-based music. Like the lyrics of a song, Jason has traveled extensively and the music has always gone with him.
