With a folksinger’s head and a rocker’s heart, Beth Bombara has built her career on an evolving sound that blurs the lines between genres. To those who make their living onstage, she’s a musician’s musician — a road warrior who writes her own exemplary material, plays multiple instruments, and fronts her own band, often a duo with her husband. With 2017’s ‘Map & No Direction,’ Bombara’s songs take aim at a larger audience with melodic hooks that showcase a love not only for roots-rock, but the irresistible punch of classic pop, too.
“Jared Rabin’s debut record, “Something Left to Say” was called “An Americana masterpiece” by American Songwriter Magazine. The title track won First Place Folk Song in the 2016 USA Songwriting Competition, and the self-produced record reached #15 on the Roots Music Report Americana Radio charts after receiving nationwide airplay.
Jared started learning music at age five from his grandfather, who was the first chair violinist for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Jared became a proficient multi-instrumentalist, went on to study jazz composition and has traveled the world performing an array of music.
Midwest Action called Jared’s 2018 Wondering About the Weather, “unabashedly honest and warm, nothing short of a great album.” It was in the Top 50 Country Americana albums on the RMR charts for most of the summer of 2018. Jared continues to tour throughout with his band and performing solo, and has 3 new singles coming out before the end of the year.”
