Jason Campbell and The Drive:
Winding down the foothills of Santa Barbara is an open road that delivers Jason Campbell and The Drive…There, three musicians crafted a musical intersection of rock, country, and funk that resulted in a sound that is uniquely their own. Although their sound is difficult to define (one reviewer seems to have gotten close with “wooden groove music”) it is undeniably accessible and infectious. The originality owes in no small part to the organic genesis of this band. The soon-to-be band mates were friends and neighbors on previously independent musical journeys, but they discovered an undeniable synergy while jamming in the hills they called home. They soon decided to commit to this new sound, and Jason Campbell and The Drive had taken root. The friendship and musical odyssey continues, and Jason Campbell and The Drive has emerged as a staple of the Santa Barbara music scene where they energize audiences with 60+ shows annually.

The Brambles:
California duo Carly (ukelele) and Bethany (percussion) are The Brambles. A Young female duo inspired by Americana Folk ballads and toe tapping tunes. Friends since high school their musical kinship developed when they were brought together by their mutual passion of euphoric acoustics in unusual places. In 2014 they made it official and began their passion of yelling harmoniously in public. In 2017 the Brambles released their first studio EP "The Brambles Greatest Hits" Musical influences: Head and the Heart, Janis Joplin, The Civil Wars, Etta James, Bob Dylan, Alison Krauss, The Everly Brothers, Kate Nash, David Bowie, Billie Holiday.
