Formed in 2017 and hailing from Pompano Beach, Florida, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties feature an incendiary fusion of Progressive Hard Rock and Roots Rock that embodies the soul found within Blues Rock icons of the 60s and 70s. After a steady dose of touring the United States, performing over 300 shows in a two year span, the band has begun to carve their way into the national touring scene. Dubbed as one of the "Top 50 Rock & Blues Artists You Must Hear In 2019" by Rock & Blues Muse, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties teamed up with Grammy Award-winner Paul Nelson (known for his work with Johnny Winter) to record Red Sun Rebellion set to release in February 2021 on Sony Orchard. The record unleashes a pioneering blend of retro soundscapes with modern Hard Rock progressivism, embracing influence from the likes of Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, Rage Against The Machine, and Rival Sons. Released in the fall of 2018, the bands second album Tales From The West was nominated for three Independent Blues Music awards and debuted at #20 on the RMR Blues Rock chart. The power trio has become a mainstay on the national club circuit and have performed alongside the likes of Foghat, The Guess Who, Blackberry Smoke, The Georgia Satellites, Bishop Gunn, Walter Trout, Eric Tessmer, Samantha Fish and Blue Oyster Cult.


Americana Roots Rock Band Street Preacher hailing from Jacksonville Florida; An impacting dynamic sound of resonating soul that pours out in each live performance to every audience. High energy original music from the influential depths of hard-hitting pure rock to storyteller old soul to the criminal sounds of southern rock & the blues. Band leaders & writing machine pair Melissa Smith & Keith Allen have come together in an electric fusion having formed a band with all elements bringing you a sound that embodies the deeply rooted influences of Chris Cornell, David Gilmore, Zakk Wylde, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, to The Allman Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, The Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Muddy Waters, Bobby Blue Bland, and The Rolling Stones.

"There's passion. There's a fire here. A whole lotta heart. You feel it."


Noriko Apostoli Giorgio Floyd, grew up listening to all genres of music. Mixed with Greek, Black American, and being a world traveler by age 6, his range of cultural understanding engulfed him in all forms of art and expression. As a kid, during his car rides to and from school, he always listened to traditional Greek music, blues, rock, soulful r&b, jazz, funk, hip-hop, and rap. Then, at age 3, Apostoli started rapping his first song, which was the start of his unique love for the sounds in music. As a singer-songwriter, composer, and producer, Apostoli fuses the healing sounds of smooth r&b, deep funk, modern pop & jazz, powered by the soul and feelings of the blues. Before Apostoli dove into the art of song building, his first passion was being in musicals and plays. He learned the art of performance and harnessed his stage presence. Apostoli played many lead roles, such as Jojo in Seussical. He also took piano, vocal, and guitar lessons.
