Singer/songwriter/guitarist Tjay Kowalchuk style of writing incorporates a Rock/Pop with Jazz and Funk to create and independent sound with huge potential for crossover and appeal amongst a variety of audiences.  TJay has been working his way quickly up the ranks, sharing the stage with well-established artists such as The Doobie Brothers, Blues Traveler, Little Feat, the Neville Brothers, Dave Mason, Southside Johnny, Fastball and Joan Osborne. Tjay was also chosen as a Relix Magazine Jam Off winner, and his song “Goldfish” was featured on the magazine’s compilation CD alongside artists including Gregg Allman and Keller Williams.

Marianne Osiel began her career as an oboist with the Nashville Symphony and while there became immersed in the Nashville world of songwriting and pop music.  Marianne is a consummate musician with her music rooted in blues, folk and jazz and with a keen harmonic sensibility.  She has been a sought-after “sideman” as a slide guitarist, oboist, and singer, with such artists as John Hall (Orleans), Nanci Griffith, Ashley Cleveland, Daryll Tookes and Joel Sinnier, as well as a member of several symphony orchestras.  She also has numerous original recordings, including a live album recorded at the infamous Blue Bird Café in Nashville.  

Jamie Sheilds’ style is a mixture of singer/songwriter, folk and adult contemporary. Her soothing yet fun acoustic versions of popular songs on the guitar, and ukulele span generations.  She has often been compared to Norah Jones and Jewel.
