Influenced by Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and The Rolling Stones, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Mark Huff’s latest release, Down River, exhibits his early roots as his foundation. Recognizable for his (acoustic and electric) guitar and harmonica playing of rock and blues, solo or with his band, he is engaging new listeners amongst unique fan cultures.
Mark Huff has toured the US and abroad, with a band, as well as solo. Mark has several CD's, has played numerous clubs and listening rooms, as well as venues such as The Hard Rock Hotel and House of Blues,opening for Chris Isaak, Al Green and Peter Frampton. In addition, he has been an opening act for Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan. His stage presence is extremely engaging, as he easily embraces the audience, as they do him; he is very well received.
Seattle musician and recording artist Tom Melancon's songs are warm and intimate. Thoughtful, poetic lyrics sung with heart and soul float easily over strong acoustic guitar rhythms. Writing and performing Alt-Country and Folk/Rock songs is Melancon's (pronounced Mehlawnsun) passion. After years as a rock bassist, he's stepped into the light as a solo performer. Drawing on a dark past with a wry sense of humor, Tom's sincere songs are rich and earthy. The understated magic of the words and melody will draw you in and bring you back to treasured memories of longing and love.
