Alameda’s Steve Meckfessel joined his first band, Size Five, when he was in junior high school in Sacramento. As a student at UC Santa Cruz, he played in a folk duo. In 2000 he formed Stone Soup, a vintage rock and roll cover band. When he recorded his first solo effort, Twice, in 2004, he brought in the founder of his junior high band, Peter Andrews, to play on the album. The title song was used on the long-running television show, JAG. The website Minor 7th praised Steve’s second album, Under Beautiful Skies, for its "plainspoken wisdom" and "ironies we can believe in," calling the album "lovely" and "moving." Under Beautiful Skies made the Americana charts and was played on stations throughout the, US, Canada, Australia and Europe. Steve has co-written songs with Bob Hahn, Peter Andrews, Jeff Lionz, Barbara Higbie and Keith Greeninger.

 

Beth Wood is a modern day troubadour who believes in the power of song. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram calls her “a superb singer/songwriter” and the Washington Post calls her “a musical triple-threat — a thoughtful songwriter and talented multi-instrumentalist with a supple, soulful voice.” Beth grew up in Lubbock, Texas, studied voice and piano at Brevard College in North Carolina, got a guitar and a degree in literature in Austin, and has since won the New Folk award at the Kerrville Folk Festival and released nine albums, including her latest, Sometimes Love. She now makes her home in Eugene, Oregon and recently published a book of poems, Kazoo Symphonies.
