K Phillips' life could be a Country song. He looks like a young Hank Williams and was named after Kris Kristofferson. Born in West Texas and raised by his grandparents in the Concho Valley, K's grandfather was both a cattle rancher and a criminal court judge. He started writing songs at age six and began playing organ and piano in bar bands at age fourteen. When K was eighteen both his close friend and girlfriend died in separate drowning accidents. Reeling from these losses, he made the decision to pursue his own music. On his forth-coming sophomore LP Dirty Wonder, K has truly found his voice – a combination of Tom Waits' lyrical wit and Keith Richards' slinky country-rock hooks joined with K's unique, compelling vocal delivery.
Jay Allan & The Uncommon Good
Jay Allan & The Uncommon Good
Colorado-born and Phoenix, AZ based singer/songwriter Jay Allan is continuously getting back to his roots. Whether they be musical, of family & friends or that of his own adventurous heart & soul, Jay’s roots are what have brought him to where he is today. As he sees it and expresses through his music and art, it is a very joyous, inspirational, yet perpetually growing and kinetic place in life. Jay has been playing and performing for over 15 years and has made music his sole profession for the past 5 years. With eight albums and counting under his musical belt, multiple projects, countless shows and tours (local, national and international) including sharing the stage with numerous influential people, Jay Allan is quite the experienced and motivated little songster. Add to all that his recent marriage and the arrival of his beautiful baby girl and you’ve got the makings of a radiantly happy Jay.
Jay Allan plays what is known to his fans as funky-folk, blues rock. Channeling honest passion and raw emotion through his own life and observations, he continues to gain fans and notoriety locally and nationally. He combines heartfelt and memorable lyrics with genre-bending styles and melodies in his long list of ever-evolving original songs that range from that of joy, love, loss, gratitude and searching and are often outlined with an insightful and sometimes humorous touch. While remaining true to his own roots, Jay often taps into and pays homage to such influences as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, The Black Crowes and far too many artists and songwriters, old and new, to name. You could say Jay relishes in the inspiration brought on by his favorite artists.
