The Steve Taylor Three began when Bryan Frink (bass, vocals) and Carey Weaver (drums, vocals) decided to show up unannounced to some of Steve Taylor’s solo acoustic gigs and formed a sort of guerrilla rhythm section. After a few years of playing shows, not rehearsing and drinking heavily the trio began writing and recording original material that became their debut album “Check Your Baggage”. The album was a hit with fans and the press, some of whom called the album “pretty good.” The three musicians weave emotion, reflections of life and family, and vast experience into songs that would be a great soundtrack for a long drive across the country. After traveling to Nashville and Memphis to do more shows and record new material, their second album “The Tennessee Sessions” was released in March. Veteran pedal steel Larry Labeck often joins the band and adds more Nashville flavor to their sound.
At the age of seventeen, singer-songwriter Alison Albrecht is making her mark in music. Albrecht’s soulful voice lends itself beautifully to her original lyrics, captivating audiences and telling stories. She picked up her first guitar at age nine and hasn’t put it down since. A seasoned performer, Albrecht has played shows across the state of Michigan and in Nashville, Tennessee, opening for acts such as the Steve Miller Band, the cast of 98.7 AMP Live, Starship, and Carbon Leaf, to name a few. With two studio EPs under her belt, hundreds of shows performed since 2009, and a 2016 Detroit Music Award nomination, this high school senior has a true passion for impacting others through music.
