The Uncommon Good
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.
Carol Pacey & The Honey Shakers
Carol Pacey & The Honey Shakers
Carol Pacey & the Honey Shakers is one of only a very few female-fronted, all original Americana rock bands in the Phoenix metro area, AZ, USA! Original and uncommonly upbeat music written by up and coming Tempe singer/songwriter, Carol Pacey. With songs written in Americana's mix of folk, alt-country and rock and roll, Carol brings it all to her shows with enthusiasm, ease and pure joy. Originally from the East Coast, Carol moved out west and became enamored with what Arizona and Mexico had to offer. At her shows, she performs a collection of original songs, from poignant ballads to driving rockers.
Blazing up and down lead guitar is Andy Borunda, most recently from local indie band, I Me Mine and The Cyd & Andy Show, as well as Crazyblue and Obbligatto. Andy is an Arizona native and his main influences are Jimmy Page, Ace Frehley and Slash.
Keeping the beat is Ben DeLuca, originally an east coast boy hailing from the D.C. area. As a kid, he loved to make noise, and learned to play multiple instruments, and with a special talent for banging on things, the drums came naturally. On the advice of such icons as Jim Morrison and Horace Greeley, he headed west, dug the AZ way of life, and never looked back. Ben has an appreciation for many genres and artists, and what he'll tell you he's learned from those who have influenced him musically, is that, "Music is a universal language that allows us to express that which we cannot by other means, it is like medicine for the soul."
Born and raised in Boston, Dante Fiorenza studied jazz and rock bass, and in 1999 with his first band, Surrender Dorothy, opened Lilith Fair Phoenix, and he has since performed with Launching Brenda, Stephanie Kniffin and Cameo Hill. Dante's main influences are his father who, while not a bassist, is the "baddest tenor man in Boston," Charles Mingus, Jaco, John Paul Jones, and Paul McCartney.
