Blues singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Otis Taylor is capable of exploring any musical mood at any given time, and it’s an important reason why he is considered one of the most talented artists to emerge in recent years. “Sometimes pigeonholed as a bluesman, Otis Taylor can’t be defined by any single category,” proclaims Spin magazine. According to Ann Powers at the Los Angeles Times, “Gentle upon first listen, blending the austerity of Delta blues with the expansiveness of free jazz, Taylor's ancient-sounding, avant-garde ‘trance blues’ has a dangerous pull.” The Oxford American raves, “It might not be too early to call Otis Taylor a major talent.”

Dana Fuchs is a phenomenon, a singer whose mesmerizing voice and presence, has led critics to compare her to Rock legends from Janis to Jagger. Fittingly, she appeared in the off-Broadway production “Love, Janis.” The multi-talented singer songwriter stars in one of the most talked-about cult films, “Across The Universe,” where she has a major presence both in the film, and on the soundtrack.
